Good evening!  Our theme on the Craft Heaven Blog this week is Halloween/Spooky projects.  I have created a sugar skull shaped card and painted Wonderful Tilda from the You Are Invited collection with her face painted for Dia de Muertos.
I painted Tilda with Distress Inks as always, using the no lines technique.  I used Distress Inks and a fine black pen to create Tilda's face make-up, a white gel pen for the highlights in the flowers and eyes and a silver gel pen for the flower details on her dress.
 I used Doohickey dies to create the details on the sugar skull.  The heart nose is an off-cut heart from the heart tag from Volume 9 and a leaf Doohickey from Volume 9 to create the swirls near the nose and mouth.
The swirls on the forehead are actually the balloon string from the balloons Doohickey in Volume 5 and the heart is also from the heart tag.  The flowers around the eyes were cut with a flower Doohickey from Volume 6.
 I hope you like it and thanks for looking!  Pop over to the blog for more spooky ideas from the rest of the team.

Star Balloon Tilda

 Good evening!  I'm rather late posting this week's card for Craft Heaven: it's been one of those weeks!  I've used another gorgeous image from the Le Cirque Collection from Magnolia and some gorgeous papers from Maja Design.

I've painted Star Balloon Tilda with Distress Inks as always and added Stardust Stickles to her shoes, hat, dress and make-up and Glossy Accents to her balloon.

I have added some gorgeous lace from Craft Heaven and some pale pink roses.  The ribbons are from my stash.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking!  x

Two simple cards with Oxide Ink backgrounds

 Good morning,
today I have two simple cards I have created completly without patterned papers. I love to create backgrounds with the Distress Oxide Inks.
My first card was made for a lovely friend whos got married in September. I used the sweet Mrs and Mr Magnolia stamp from the You're invited collection. BTW... this stamp is on sale right now 😉
Have you seen the hearts behind the couple? This is the Small hearts Background from Scrapiniec.
And my second card I've made is a christmas card.  Yes, christmas is not far away and it's time for me to start with christmas card making 😃
I used a very old Magnolia snowman but he is the cutest I've ever seen.
Behind the little guy I put the Snowy Forest. This was one of the very first DooHickeys I bought with starting this hobby.

Hope you like both cards...
Have a nice weekend.

Bunny Love..

Good morning fellow crafters!

It's been a long time since I posted something on here but I'm happy to be finally able to share something new with you all..
Here is a super cute notebook for a very special young girl..

I think you all know how much I love Maja Design papers, but this time I decided to have a play with my other favourite paper brand: Pion Design..
I picked 2 sheets from the Where the Roses Grow collection (Rose Meadow & In the Garden) and matched them with the gorgeous Pion Design Palette Pink I and Pink II..
All the flowers on here are WOC except a few..

Creating scenes like this is one of the things I love the most..
I used an older Magnolia background stamp and two stamps from the SunBeam Collection 2018..
Tilda with Little Bunny and the Sunbeam Bunnies Kit..

I coloured the image with Distress Inks.. I use both, the ink pads and reinkers..
I always use a tiny bit of Distress Micro Glaze to seal and protect my images..

Here is a long and detailed list of the colours I used for this scene:
Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose
Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
Tattered Rose, Aged Mahogany
Weathered Wood, Pumice Stone, Black Soot
Vitorian Velvet, Scattered Straw, Pumice Stone, Black Soot
Pumice Stone, Hickory Smoke
Walnut Stain, Pumice Stone, Black Soot
Old Paper, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss

There are lots of different layers on this cover..
A paper doily, multiple layers of paper, distressed and machine sewn.. Some lace, a bit of cheesecloth.. Tons of half-pearls..
I used one of the beautiful charms from the shop called Flower Basket..

Magnolia Doohickeys are one of my fave dies out there and I used quite a few for this project..
You can see the Jeans Tags on the top left corner, the Letter Tag on the right, both stamped all over with the Postcard and New York stamp sets..
The leaves that accompany the flower arrangements are from the Lilac set..
The hearts I scattered around are cut with the Heart Background Doohickey as well..

More Magnolia dies on the back of the notebook..
The little doily and the Old Swedish Lace..

The notebook is closed with a bit of white Vintage Seam Binding and I also tied a Pink Flower Pendant to that..

The love chipboard embellishment is a Scrapiniec piece of course..
There are more than 200 different designs to choose from in the shop but I felt this one was the missing detail on here..

If you are wondering what's all that sparkle on the hearts..
Easy.. The amazing Nuvo Drops.. These are Glitter Drops in the colour White Blizzard..

That's all for today folks..
I truly hope you enjoyed..

Thanks for stopping by!!
xoxo Tina

Join the Circus!

 Good morning!  Have you seen the new collection from Magnolia?  I am in love with them all!  I spent many happy hours over the weekend painting them all and here is my first card with one of them!  You will find the full collection at Craft Heaven.

 I painted Edwin Circus Manager with Distress Inks and added some dots to his cheeks with a white gel pen.  There was a large dot stamp in the kit which I have taken to be a juggling ball.  I added some foam balls in the same colours as the balls I have painted.

 The sentiment is also in the collection.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking!  Pop over to the Craft Heaven blog for more ispiration from the rest of the team. x

Tilda with Foxy..

Good morning crafting friends!

Today I have a new card to share and I really like her 😃 The sweet Tilda with her little fox from the
Sun Beam Collection is perfect for autumn  themed cards. I used typical colours for this card.
The combination of brown and pink with a touch of green is so pretty for this season.

As on most cards I made, I hide a little tag behind the central part. This time I added some Summer Foliage leaves and the sweet Love cup charm.
Because I love some flowers on my cards, I also added some of them on the right of the central.

Tilda and Foxy are coloured with Distress Inks (refills). I cut them out with a little white border. It's a little bit eaier to cut the motif with all the tiny parts.
In the center I place the pretty sentiment from Stempelgledes "Have a beautiful Day" collection.

I also stamped a little sentiment on the hided tag.

I hope I gave you a little inspiration for you next card.
Thanks for stopping by today.

Sunny Days Tilda..

Good morning!

I really need to start making Christmas cards but I couldn't resist using the last Pool Party stamp I bought before I start on them.

I painted Sunny Days Tilda with Distress Inks as always and added some details to the sea, sand and cocktail umbrella with a white gel pen.  The little clouds were cut with a die from Doohickey Volume 9.

I made all of the flowers myself for this card.  The rolled roses were made from the gorgeous Maja Design Sofiero paper and the large white ones were made from silk foam and the Magnolia Peony Petals die.

The Swirl was cut with a die from Doohickey Volume 7 and the ribbon tags were cut from some ribbon from my stash.

The tab on top of the image was cut with the recipe tab from the Recipe Card Collection and I used the Scalloped Tag for the tags.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking!
