All About The Dies


Hi, this is a card that I have made recently for a colleague who has just left to have a baby, she doesn't know what she is having though, so I thought I would do brown and cream.


The baby dies are from a previous Doohickey Magazine, the papers are all from Maja Design. The dies that can be bought are linked at the end of the post.




Thank you so much for popping by,

A Fish Kisses To Tilda

Hello everyone, long time no see, I'm going to be like a bus though-nothing from me for ages and then loads of cards at once! Here is a card I made for my daughters birthday way back in June, and she was over the moon with it as I have used her favourite colour too!


The shells and sea grass are from before Live and Love Crafts closed, I stocked up on them and had loads of fun adding them to this card. Tilda has been coloured with special edition distress reinkers to match the papers from Maja Design, I don't use this colection enough!

Mmmm Cake..!!!


Morning everyone, I hope that you have all had a lovely summer, we are currently enjoying a bit of an Indian Summer here in the UK, but the nights are definitely pulling in now.

I was recently asked by a friend if I could make a card for her to give her friend, and the story was she was sixty almost a year ago and she was upset that she never had a party for her, so could I make the card for her surprise party and say that she is still sixty. This is what I made, and my friend said that it was perfect!


The cake is a special release Magnolia Doohickey and is available HERE, I have molded the icing a bit and built up the hot glue gun to give it a bit of depth. And then I went daft and added oodles of glitter, lol.


I have built the cake up on top of a pierced scalloped nesting die, available HERE, and for all of the paper on the card I have used different sheets from the 6x6 Maja Design paper pad 'Summertime' available HERE.


All of the other bits are from my stash.

A New Clock For My Craft Room


Morning everyone, I have been wanting to update the clock in my craft room for a while, and as soon as I saw these stamps I knew I had to use these. I actually butchered my old clock for the mechanism, lol.


I've masked the two images together, first off I stamped TILDA IN WONDERLAND using a TIM HOLTZ STAMPING PLATFORM and making sure that the paper is flush to the edge, with the magnets in place as you don't want the paper to move. I then stmped the same tilda to a post it note, making sure that I stamped where it is sticky. The next step was to cut around Tilda pretty much on the outline, and then stick this over the stamped Tilda. This is where the platform comes into it's all, lay the image that you want to appear to be behind on top of Tilda in the place that you want, in this case it is the TILDA IN WONDERLAND CLOCK, close the lid to pick up the stamp, ink it up and then stamp. The beauty of this is if you need to add more ink then you can as your paper is firmly in place, and the stamp will stamp in the exact same place again.


I have coloured Tilda in with distress reinkers, to match the papers from Maja Design, I have used several sheets from the DENIM & FRIENDS 6x6 PAPER PAD, I mean she had to be in blue, right?


I have also used distress reinkers on the CLOCK but mailny for shadow and to make it look old.


I have cut a BACKGROUND HEARTS DOOHICKEY in two, and had it overhang the image here...

... and here.


Because of the hands of the clock going round I was a bit restricted as to what I could put on the rest of the canvas, I can't put nothing on, CAS isn't my style, lol, so I used the dies that come with the CLOCK and popped a pearl on too. I have also kept the hearts from the DOOHICKEY and dotted them around the canvas too.

Thank you for stopping by,

Summertime...


Morning everyone, hope you are all OK. This is now my favourite time of year, summer is just starting, it's nice and warm and the days are lovely and long...

For my card today I have used Raspberry Tilda from the Fruit Salad collection, and coloured her with my distress reinkers.


I have used several sheets of paper from the 6x6 paper pad 'Summertime' from Maja Design. The nested circles have been cut out using 2 of the Pierced Scalloped Nested Dies from Gummiapan and I have added height by gluing corrugated card between the circles too.


This is one of the special release dies, it's a Bridal Bow Doohickey Die.


and here is my arty shot.

Denim Butterfly


Hello everyone, hope you are well, here is this weeks card for Swedish House Crafts

I have embossed a LARGE STENCILED BUTTERFLY and added lots of stick on pearls too. I have used two of the GUMMIAPAN SCALLOPED CIRCLES NESTING DIES and given them some depth by using corrugated card between them.


The paper from the circles is from Maja Designs DENIM & FRIENDS 6X6 PAPER PAD and the background DP is both sides of HEARTBREAKER which is a 12x12 sheet from the same collection and is currently on sale.


The CONGRATS DIE is by Roxstamps and I've cut it out with the same dp collection.


I have used 5 CHIPBOARD BUTTERFLIES and stained them with a bit of DI ink by quickly tapping them on the ink pad and then added some glitter on there too.


And my arty shot to see how it has been built up.
