Teenage Boy's Birthday Card


Hi!  Today I'd like to share with you the birthday card I made for my son this year using the gorgeous Maja Design Denim and Friends paper collection.  These papers are great for a boy's/man's card!


I cut around the star and shoes from one of the papers and then backed the star with black card.


The 'Son' was cut with a die from my stash.  The 'It's your birthday' sentiment is from the Stempelglede Have A Beautiful Day stamp set, embossed with white Nuvo embossing powder.


I stamped a Tim Holtz ticket stamp in the corners of the star paper.


I also added some Tim Holtz film strip ribbon and washi tape.


I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Teacher Thank You Cards


Good morning!  I have another card to share today for Craft Heaven.  These are the thank you cards I made for my daughter to take to school.  Same design as my last post but some extra embellishments in the form of Doohickey dies.


I used a white gel pen to create the 'chalk' writing.


The cute owl and ruler are from Doohickey volume 20, Back to School.  The plasters were also cut with a Doohickey die from Maja Design paper.


The leaves were cut with the Rose Leaf Doohickey die and the seam binding is from Craft Heaven.


Altogether I made four cards, all the same design except for the extra addition of the plasters on the first one.


I hope you like them and thanks for looking!

An Apple for the Teacher


Good afternoon!  Today I'd like to share another creation for Craft Heaven.  This was a thank you card I was commissioned to make.  I love making these apple shaped cards as teacher thank you cards each year, and I love to vary them a little each time.  This year I decided to combine my blackboard thank you cards with the apple cards to make apple shaped blackboards!


I have written the thank you sentiment by hand with a white gel pen.  I tried to make it look like it had been written with chalk!  The base has been made with Kraft cardstock.


The gorgeous vintage seam binding, lace and cherry blossom are from Craft Heaven.  I cut the leaves with the Rose Leaf Doohickey die and added some twine and an apple charm from my stash.


I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Summer Days


Good evening!  I can't believe it has been a month since my last post!  I have been so busy lately and creating a lot of things behind the scenes which I will be showing you shortly.  Today I have a card for Craft Heaven Shop and also as a remind for our TOMIC challenge that runs all summer.  I have used the gorgeous Maja Design Summertime paper pad.  All of the papers in this collection are so beautiful it is hard to chose what to use!


I have painted Lazy Day Tilda from the Pool Party collection with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I have also used the postmark stamp from the With Love From Paris stamp collection at the side of the image.


The strawberries were made with Maja papers and the Magnolia Strawberry die and the flowers and lace are from Craft Heaven.


The ice-cream was also cut with a Magnolia doohickey and I've topped it with strawberries cut from one of the Maja Design papers.


I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

The seam binding and heart key are from Craft Heaven and I have used the Heart Background Doohickey either side of the image.

Urban Collection


Good morning!  Today's card for Craft Heaven features the amazing Tilda from the Magnolia Day 2019 Urban Collection stamp set.    I've teamed her with some gorgeous papers from Pion Design, Delicate Blooms from the New Beginnings Collection.


I have painted Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique and added some dots to her eyes and cheeks with a white gel pen.


The gorgeous chipboard flower spray is from Scrapiniec and the cherry blossoms and lace are from Craft Heaven.


 The sentiment was cut from the Little Things paper from Pion Design's New Beginnings Collection.  This paper has so many fantastic sentiments on it!


The tags were cut with the heart tag from Doohickey Volume 5 and I have added white seam binding to them.


I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Tilda in Paris

 

Good afternoon!  I'd like to share a card featuring one of my favourite techniques today: painting in sepia.  I love this technique for a few reasons; it is quicker than painting in colour, it is very effective and it looks like old photos, which I love!  I have used my favourite Maja Design paper at the moment, Stonewashed from the Denim & Friends collection.  I had to buy more of it so that I don't run out!

I masked Tilda and the Eiffel Tower images from the With Love From Paris stamp kit from Magnolia Day 2017 and painted the whole scene with Walnut Stain Distress ink using the no lines technique.  I added a few detail with a white gel pen.  I stamped the cute little dog separately and painted her in the same way before cutting her out and adding to the 'photo' with 3D pads.  The card was cut with the heart frame doohickey from Magnolia Vintage Box 5.



I used the birdcage and bird doohickeys from Vintage Box 5 and the post mark stamp is from the With Love From Paris stamp set.



I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Tulip Love Tilda..

Good morning to you all!

Tina here..
I'm happy to share another make with you..
Those of you who are following me on my Facebook page have already seen some 'work in progress' pics of this, but now I'm finaly ready to share the final result with you..


I am a big fan of cutting dies.. You know that..
And as most of the times I picked a GoKreate set for the card's base..
But let me tell you..
I have a serious addiction to CreaLies dies as well..
They are really growing on me and as you can see I've used them again..
This time I had a play with the Squares with Cross Stitches.. That's what I used to cut the image out..
I keep repeating myself but you get so many sizes in each set, and the price point is awesome!!
I love, love, love them and I will be getting more soon..
I simply need them all! LOL!
Well.. Maybe not all but my wishlist is getting longer and longer..
Check them out HERE.. They are absolutely fantastic!


Here she is.. Tulip Love Tilda from the Hugs & Kisses Collection 2019..
Stamped with Archival Ink and coloured with Distress Inks as usual..
If you're interested in the list of colours just let me know..
The sentiment on her right is from that same collection..

Another detail I'm loving to death is that Round Cabochon on the left..
I cut that beautiful rose out of the paper I used on the back of the card, placed it inside the cabochon and topped it with lots of Glossy Accents..


I'm sure you recognized the paper collection..
Yep.. One of Maja Design's most amazing products..
The Sofiero line..
When it comes to kraft paper, my go to paper is the Bazzil Classic - 12x12 - Kraft..

Let's talk some more about dies..
Lots of Magnolia Doohickeys on here..
The Sakura Background is peeking out on the top and bottom of the card and I placed some wonderful flower sequins on the flowers to add more sparkle..
The Tilda Tickets on the top right corner..
And that tiny tag hanging from the flowers.. The heart on it is from the Heart Band Aid set..
The flowers are from WOC if you were wondering..

There's a doily inside..
The heart dies are from Marianne Design..
This set is called Craftables - Basic Shapes - Hearts..

On the back of the card you can see that I used the Spellbinders Standard Circles Large and a die from the Triple Tear set..
Another doily, and some more half-pearls..


Check out that cabochon once again..
I really, really love it!

The image has a light coat of Distress Micro Glaze on, because I always protect my images with that..
The highlights are made with a Ranger White Opaque Pen and I also used a Wink of Stella Glitter Brush on the Tulip..

Gesso, lace and cheesecloth add that extra shabby feel to the whole thing..


So this is what I wanted to share with you today..

Thanks for stopping by!
xoxo
Tina

Lollipop Card..


 Good morning!  Today I'd like to show you my latest creation for Craft Heaven using Maja Design papers.


The image is Edwin's Oldsmobile from Magnolia, painted with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I have added Glossy Accents to the windscreen and Stardust Stickles to the headlights.  I covered the actual number plate with a piece of card bearing the recipients name.


I have used the gorgeous Star Tag from Magnolia to decorate the card to match with the Maja Design paper.  The beautiful blue seam binding is from Craft Heaven.  I also used the tassle tag from Doohickey Kit Volume 5.


I covered a chipboard no. 6 with crackle paint and inked it with Walnut Stain Distress INk.


The pretty straw is from Craft Heaven too and I used more of the seam binding to create a bow.


 I hope you like it and thanks for looking.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
