Me and My Snowman

Good morning people!
Jane here..

 I am delighted to share my first inspiration post with you for Craft Heaven.
I have used 'Me and My Snowman' from the Aspen collection for my card.

I have painted Tilda with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I've also used a white gel pen on her cheeks and eyes and added Stardust Stickles to some of the snow.

I have used a piece of rose trim as an individual flower and Doohickey snowflake dies for all of the snowflakes.

I have used an older text stamp from Magnolia for the 'Let it Snow' sentiment and I have also added Damask Paper Straws tied with white button twine.

I hope you like it and I've inspired you and thanks for looking! x

Sweet Tilda with Band Aid...

Hello Magnolia lovers!

I'm starting this week with a new card for you! I made it with one of the newest Magnolia stamps called Sweet Tilda with Band Aid from the Get Well Collection..

The gorgeous paper used is from the New Maja Design Joyous Winterdays collection. I also used blue sheet from Monochromes Shades of Winterdays collection.
For the card shape I chose a heart die... 
Other dies used from the new collection are:
Doctors Notepad, Stethoscope, Heart Band Aid and ECG Curve... all are available in the shop...

Here is another die used and is from Vintage Frames and Tags die set...

I coloured the image with Distress Inks using the no-line colouring technique..
The whole image is protected with a thin coat of Distress Micro Glaze and I added some Liquid Pearls around her..

Hope you enjoyed!

Happy crafting!

Sending Warm Hugs your Way..

Hello, Susen here..

Today I have a summer card for you. This card, maybe you have noticed, is a little bit smaller than usual. The card size is 13,5 x 13,5 cm.
The cute Tilda is called Happy Summer Tilda. Isn't she cute? I coloured her with Distress Inks.

In the middle of this card I've put a shaker window. The sweet sentiment is from the new rubber stamp set from Stempelglede that is called 'Have a beautiful Day'. 
The beautiful papers are from one of my fav Maja Design collections, Sofiero. I also used the Monochromes. They are matching perfect.

The pretty flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the leaves and tags cutting dies are from Magnolia.

I've done some stitching around..

Hope you found some inspiration!

Envelope Card using See No Evil Tilda..

Good morning lovely people!

Irene here, today I´m using "See No Evil Tilda" for my little bit of inspiration.
Here is my project, I hope you like it!!!!!!!!!!!!

I use my Prismacolor Pencils and some Distress INK, in this case "Ground Espresso" to distress the edges to give a vintage look to the image.

I used the Envelope punch Board to create an envelope box, but I also used plenty Magnolia Doohickeys just like the clouds from the DooHickey Box Volume 8 and the beautiful doilie die "Lace Coaster".

I use layers and layers of gorgeous papers from my favorite Paper Pads from Maja Design, like the Denim & Friends, I Wish and  Home for the Holidays collections.

But I also used a few Scrapiniec chipboards "Doily Lace - Doilies" as well as some of the gorgeous Vintage Seam Binding with a cute charm called "Handbag", simply stunning...

All of these give so much texture and dimension to this project..
Don't you think?

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by!
Have a wonderful rest of the week!!!

Hugs, Irene

Best wishes with Stempelglede

Good morning everyone,

today I have a new card to show. It's a card for a wedding anniversary. What would fit better than a stamp from Stempelglede? I used this beautiful bouquet and coloured it with my Distress Inks (refills).  

In addition to the pretty stamp I used some Frantáge embossing powder in chunky white on the motif. After colouring I sealed the image with Distress Micro Glaze.

I used several cutting dies from Magnolia like the Swedish Lace and the Bride Bow, the big doily and the different leaves.
Behind the image I put a sheet of corrugated paper which I painted with White Gesso. 
The two Bloomy Tags are also from Magnolia.

All the pretty flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I used the beautiful papers from Maja Design's "Coffee in the Arbour" collection.

It's me Barbara with you today! I'm sharing with you my newest wedding project...
As you know I love explosion boxes!

As usually I picked one of the most amazing Maja Design paper collections called Vintage Romance. This time in blue tones. 
The 12x12 paper sheets used are Wedding Day and Deep Love. I also used some sheets from the 6x6 paper pad.... and a sheet from Maja Design's Vintage Spring Basics Collection.

Inside you will find two simple pockets... both hold simple circle tags...
On the other two flaps I added some nice wishes..
Here you can also find the Scrapiniec The One - Background chipboard piece and a few Lemon flowers made with a beautiful Magnolia die..

On the cake I added one Little Daffodil, some more Lemon flowers, a few flowers made with white Foamiran, White Decorative Foam Bouquets and Texture paste....

Ice Tilda - Twist & Pop Up Card..

Good morning everyone!
It's Irene here, and today I have a cute and funny Twist & Pop Up Card to share.

...I had so much fun making this card...
When someone gets this card, you should be there to see their face when they say WOW!!!! and guess what …. You must say that YOU MADE IT and put that amazement on their face.. This just makes my DAY!!!!!!

Her name is Ice Tilda and she's from the Sweet Dreams Christmas Collection 2011, one of my favorite stamps!!!!! I used several Magnolia Dies, like the Vintage Frames And Tags, the Spruce, and other DooHickey dies. For my sentiments I use the Stempelglede stamps from the Follow Your Heart set. By the way.. Did you see the new designs that just came in store? Wonderful!!

Tilda is coloured with Prismacolor pencils this time.. and I stamped her with Jet Black Archival Ink and made those white highlights with a Ranger White Opaque Pen...

And of course let's not forget to mention all the gorgeous papers I used..
I mixed some Maja Design papers from the I Wish Collection with one of the newest collections called Denim & Friends and the matching Monochromes - Shades of Denim..

Thanks for taking the time to stop by!
Have a wonderful Sunday!!!

Hugs, Irene
