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!

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!

Poinsettia Tilda..

Hello dear Craft Heaven Shop lovers!

Tina here..
This card may come as a surprise to you as I'm usually not this early with my Christmas makes, but I guess it doesn't hurt to make some a bit in advance.. LOL!


I had to have a play with some Maja Design papers..
The new collection Denim & Girls is already available in store but I chose the I Wish Collection for this..
There will be plenty of time to play with all the others too.. I hope..

The card's base is made with a GoKreate die - the biggest one of the Large Frames Frilly #5..
The smaller frame frame under the snowflake is a Magnolia Doohickey from the Vintage Square set..


 Here is my beloved Poinsettia Tilda from the Aspen Holidays Collection 2016..
I paired her with a sentiment from that same collection..

The image is stamped with Archival Ink and I coloured her with Distress Inks..
I combine both, ink pads and reinkers..

I also used my sewing machine as you can see..
I always feel a project isn't really finished if I don't add a stitch or two..


Here are some close-ups..
I've used quite a few doilies, some cheesecloth, even some corrugated cardboard that I covered with Gesso to tone it down a bit..
There's a Bark Heart with a little WOC rose on top..
A gorgeous and very sparkly button, some lace..
And let's not forget the Snowflurry Background Doohickey..
I used it on the front and on the inside..
The top one consists of three layers.. It was a nasty job, I tell you, but I really wanted it to be sturdy so it won't break that easily..
The inside circles are made with Spellbinders dies..
One Standard Circle Large and a Petite Scalloped Circle Large..
The one on the back is from the Triple Tear set..
Just gorgeous..
There are lots of half-pearls on the front and back as well..


The dots around her are white Frantage embossing powder.. 
The layer behind the stamped image is made out of Bazzill Classic 12x12 Kraft..
My absolute favourite when it comes to kraft paper..
The snowflakes are cut out of Bazzill Cardstock as well.. That's the Bazzill Mono Canvas 12x12 in white..
Also a favourite of mine..


Well that's all.. For now..
I really hope you enjoyed your stay, got inspired and learned something new!
Stay tuned.. I have another project coming up very very soon..

xoxo

Now let's talk about the dies..
The gorgeous circle I used to cut out the image is a CreaLies Circle with Open Scallop..
I just cannot recommend these dies enough..
They cut beautifully and you can find them in all kind of shapes, with all kinds of finishes..
And you get soooo many different sizes in each set.. 
I tell you.. I'm in love with these and I will use them a whole lot for sure..
Of course I just had to use the square set as well.. They complement each other marvellously..
The square set is called Squares with Open Scallop..
You can find them all HERE..

The card's base was made with a GoKreate Frame Frilly #15..
The tags and fence are both Magnolia Dohickey dies..
One is called Bloomy Tag and the other Lovely Fence..
I used Spellbinders Standard Large Circles and Petite Scalloped Circles Large for my handmade logo on the back..


A shot from the side to show you some more details..
The chipboard element is from Scrapiniec.. From the Boho Love collection to be more precise..
I made the dots around the image adding some Frantage embossing powder..
Not sure if you can tell but the pockets on her pants are covered with Nuvo Crystal Glaze and the flowers in her hair are all sparkly because I added some Stardust Stickles on top of them..

I think the House charm is absolutely adorable.. Isn't it?
I've used my sewing machine to stitch the paper edges, added lots of half-pearls and all sorts of WOC flowers all over the place..
There's also some cheesecloth here and there and different kinds of absolutely gorgeous lace..
All with a light touch of Dina Wakley Media Gesso on..

Wooden box with Trunk Packing Tilda..

Hello lovely crafters,

I know, I am really quiet during the last months but I hope it's going to be better next time.

Today I have a little time to write a tiny post for you. This box I've made a while ago but I don't want to miss the chance to share it with you.

The background paper is from Magnolia. Also the smaller pieces behind Tilda are from Magnolia.  I really love their patterend papers.


Tilda is from Magnolias Let's go collection. Isn't she cute? I noticed, that she is out of stock, but this collection has so many sweet stamps. You will love them all =)

I used many DooHickey dies from Magnolia. I love to use the Tilda Doily and the Tilda Tickets. Also the window frame is from Magnolia.
Have you seen the beautiful Scrapiniec Doily? The pretty Scrapiniec pieces are perfect for all you crafty works.



Have a nice weekend.

Susen

A Spring Card..


Good morning!  Today I'd like to share a card I've created using one of the new stamps released on Magnolia Day and papers from the gorgeous Maja Design Summertime paper collection.


I have painted the sweet Tilda in her magnolia flower with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I've added dots to her cheeks, eyes and hair bow with a white gel pen.


The beautiful sentiment comes with the image, along with a few other background stamps.  The sentiment was cut out with a die from the Doohickey Volume 9.  


The butterflies were cut from a Pion Design paper.  The beautiful pink lace is also from Craft Heaven.


How cute is this birdhouse charm?  It does come with a hanging loop on it but I snipped it off so that it looked like it was propped in the tree.  I created the magnolia flowers from Silk Foam using a Doohickey die.  The branches were cut with the Sakura Branch Doohickey die.


I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Get Well Soon..



Good morning!  I am back with another card using a Magnolia stamp from the Get Well Collection.  The papers are from Maja Design's gorgeous Summertime paper pad.


I painted Tilda with Broken Leg using Distress Inks as always and added some details to her dress, cheeks and eyes with a white gel pen.  I have placed tiny pearls to the scallop edge around the image.


The sentiment comes with this stamp.  The font is so beautiful on this one!  The gorgeous blossoms are from Craft Heaven and the sticking plasters were cut with the Heart Band Aid Doohickey die.


 I have cut more sticking plasters for the other side of the image.  The rose is from Craft Heaven too.


The tiny hearts were cut with the Heart Band Aid Doohickey too and the gorgeous heart backgrounds were cut with the Heart Background Doohickey die.


I hope you like it and thanks for looking!
