Craft Heaven DT - It's Cold Outside!

Good morning!  Another Christmas card to share today with more of the stunning Maja Design papers.  Please excuse the terrible photos today - it was terribly gloomy outside when I took these!

I have used one of my favourite Christmas stamps from Magnolia, It's Cold Outside Tilda from the Waiting For Christmas Collection.  As usual, I have painted her with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I've used the gorgeous heart frame from Vintage Box 5 for the image mat.

I have added some gorgeous Scrapiniec holly pieces and some heart tags cut with a Doohickey die.

I have also used the Mistletoe Doohickey die and Poinsettia Doohickey die from the Merry Little Christmas Collection to make the leaves and flowers.  The Poinsettias are made from white silk Foamiran.

I also used the white silk Foamiran to cover some yellow flower centres to make the mistletoe berries.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

Christmas Bears!

Good morning!  I have two cards to show you today that are a matching pair from a son and daughter to their Mummy.  I designed them as mirror images embellishment wise so that they can be displayed together.  First up is the girl's card.  I have used the stunning new Christmas papers by Maja Design and used one of the gorgeous Cocco With Present from the Little Christmas Collection.

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

I have used the Tilda Ticket Doohickey to create little tags at the side of the image and added bells, twine and tiny pink roses.

I've also added a bark heart and cherry blossom to the other side.  The finishing touch is 'Mummy' cut from some gorgeous silver glitter card that I have recycled from last year's Christmas crackers!

Now onto the boy's card.  This time I used Cozy Christmas Bear, also from the Little Christmas Collection and again painted him with Distress Inks.

I have used the New York post mark stamps from the With Love Collection around the images on both cards.

I have used the same embellishments but swapped the pink roses for blue ones...

...and placed them on the opposite sides to the girl's card!

I hope you like them and thanks for looking! x

Sweet Christmas Dreams

 Good evening!  I have my project for the Craft Heaven Inspirational Blog to share today using some gorgeous Magnolia papers and an older Tilda, Something For You Tilda from the Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection.  I actually found this Tilda, already painted when I was tidying my craft room, hence the black outline instead of the no lines technique I usually use these days.  She is still painted with Distress Inks though!

I have stamped the Vintage Merry sentiment from the So Jolly Under The Mistletoe Collection with glue and added gilding flakes in bronze and gold to make it the focal point of the card.  I have used some holly cutouts from Scrapiniec around the sentiment.  You can find lots of different Scrapiniec pieces at Craft Heaven.  They add so much instant impact to you cards!

I have used the Scalloped Tag from the Butterfly Dreams Collection to make the tags and added white cotton lace and white button twine, along with a bronze holly charm.

I added another tag to match at the other side.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

Frozen Tilda

Good evening!  I have my inspirational piece for Craft Heaven today using the incredibly cute Frozen Tilda from the Christmas Party Collection from 2017.  I've also used some Pion Design and Maja Design Christmas papers.


I have painted Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique and added some white dots for snow and on her cheeks.  I've also added Stardust Stickles around her feet and to the snowflakes.

The sentiment comes with Starlight Kit and I have embossed it in silver.  The lace is from Craft Heaven and I have used Doohickey dies to cut the snowflakes. 

I have used the Heart Tag Doohickey for the tags and added some lace and bells.

I have also used the Slender Firs Doohickey to cut the trees.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

You make me smile..

Hello everyone!!!

Finally I'm back with a new card to share with you!
In this past month I've coloured quite a few Tilda's and today I chose to upload a card with one of the cutest newbies.
It's Clown Tilda  from one of the latest Magnolia collections called  Le Cirque Collection 2018.

The papers I used are all from Maja Design's Summertime collection...
After a long time I used my sewing machine again
and I added Gesso here and there...

All dies are from Magnolia.
I used the Mini Doilie and Christmas - Magnolia die
from Doohickey Early Bird Vol.7.

The sentiment stamp is from the same collection as Clown Tilda and is called Le Cirque Flag Kit stamp set.

I cut out this cute Tilda with some Crealies dies. These are the Crea Nest Lies XXL Dies No. 35.

The hearts added all around are from Scrapiniec chipboards. The Confetti Hearts to be exact.
I coloured them and added some Ranger Glossy Accents on top.

All the other items used for this card are listed at the end of this post and are available in Tina's amazing shop.

Thank you for visiting!
Hugs, Barbara GR

Nurse Tilda

Good morning,
today I want to share a new card with you.
The autumn is finally here and that means the season with running noses and cold started.
And sometimes you need a little "Get well soon" card.
I made a card with the cute Nurse Tilda. She is coloured really fast and is not too big.
The colouring is made with my Distress inks (refills).
The pretty papers are from Vintage Romance 6x6 paper pad. I love this collection from Maja Design. The rose pink doily I cut out from Dusty Rose I paper from Pion Design Palette.
My card base I cut with the Vintage Square from Magnolia.
The Sentiment is from Tilda with broken leg. I used two cutting from this collection, Heart band aid and Jar with Pills.

I wish you a great start into the new week.

Enjoy Life

Hello everyone,
today I have a new card to share with you.
The cute Tilda I used on my card is called Tilda Cirque. Isn't she the cutest? And the best is, that you can grab her for a reduced price 😉 BTW, the whole collection is reduced at the moment. So, be quick to save them all.
Next to Tilda I stamped the pretty sentiment "Enjoy Life" from Stempelgledes "Follow your Heart" collection.
I added a lot of different die cuts as the leafs from the Invitation cutting die set, the bride bow and the  Dream tag.
Also I used some Flowers and berries from the Wild Orchid Craft range and papers from Majas Vintage Romance collection.

Hope you like this card and see you next week.

 As always I have painted Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I've added Startdust Stickles to the hearts on her top and the bow in her hair.  I have used a white gel pen for the dots on her cheeks and eyes.

 I have used several Doohickey dies on this card.  The row of presents and the dies for the flowers are from Doohickey Volume 4 and the birds are from The Vintage Box 5.  I have also used the Doily Doohickey behind the image.

 The bird cage stamp and die are also from Vintage Box 5.  The scrabble letter ribbon is from my stash.

Anniversary Card

Good morning!  Today I'd like to share another card I made for my parents' 50th Golden Wedding Anniversary a few weeks ago.  I have used some gorgeous papers from the Maja Design Celebration paper collection and one of my favourite Stempelglede stamps from the Grunge Flourish Hearts Collection.

I embossed the Grunge Heart with gold embossing powder twice: onto white cardstock and onto vellum.  I cut out the centre heart from the vellum and have placed it over the top of the first.

 The paper lily of the valley was cut from an old paper from my stash and I have used added a few pretty flowers too.  I made the 50 myself with small half gems.

I added a seam binding bow and a resin Eiffel Tower along with some gorgeous deep lace from Craft Heaven.

The Happy Anniversary sentiment was cut from the bottom of the Maja Design paper.

The 'tickets' peeping out from beneath the lace were also cut from the Maja Design paper.

 I also added some cheesecloth and a doily from my stash for extra texture at the bottom of the card.
