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.

Thank you for popping by,

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,

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.

Remember Suha is having a wonderful celebration during the month of June. We already had one winner. 

Suha would love for you to share your makes with us so she and us DT peeps can pop in and see your wonderful creations. All you need to do is write a short post with your make and then link on your post HERE so we can come visit you. I cannot wait to pop in on you all!

Summertime Tilda and A New Venture

Good morning everyone, Becky here with you today and at last in the UK we have had a little glimpse of some warm weather, admittedly it didn't last for long and I was on nights one of the days, but still winter is far behind us now, yay!! So I decided to use the perfectly named papers from Maja Design, Summertime!! Check out the end of the post for the links to everything in the store.

But before my card I just want to tell you all about my new venture, that I do with my almost 11 year old daughter Grace (I would say 10 year old, but she is adamant that she is almost 11, lol). We have recently started to make and sell our own nail polishes, we use vegan friendly products, and most of them are free of 10 of the nasty chemicals (they are all at least 5 free), they are available in our online store HERE and we have a Facebook Page HERE where there will be Facebook exclusives and details of special offers and competitions, so please follow so that you don't miss out. Currently we can only post to the UK, due to Royal Mail restrictions, but I am looking into ways to ship further afield. Most of the polishes are £5 and they come in a pretty box so are perfect to treat yourself or someone else. Right, now on to my card...

I have coloured one of the Class Trip Tilda's in with my distress reinkers, this is Tilda with Froggy, I love his slightly perplexed expression, lol. I used one of the Gummiapan stitched ovals to cut her out, and placed one of the special release doohickeys behind. I don't like throwing away pretty cut outs from dies, so here I have scattered some of the hearts around the image too.

Here is a close up of the doohickey, and also of the gorgeous antique luxury ornament.

I simply adore both of the bow dies from Magnolia, and they have both been rereleased, this is the bridal bow, and I think that it is just so pretty.

Here is a close up of our gorgeous Tilda.

And my arty shot. This card is quite clean and simple for me, but when I have used so many gorgeous products I can't bring myself to cover them up.

From the store I have used;
Tilda With Froggy
Maja Design Summertime 6x6 Paper Pad
Magnolia Special Release Bridal Bow Doohickey
Magnolia Special Release Background Hearts Doohickey
Gummiapan Nesting Oval Dies
Antique Luxury Ornament

This die is one of the re-released ones that have recently been released, this is Background Hearts and I have used Aquamarine monochrome from the same Maja Design paper collection.

I just had to use the Insta-Cam die, to match the camera that Tilda has round her neck.

Isn't this suitcase die the absolute cutest? I have used a few tiny brads to fasten the handle to the case, and then added a few flowers just because I can, lol.

Here is a close up of our gorgeous Tilda.

And my arty shot.

April Showers Brings Forth May Flowers

Good morning everyone, hope you are all well. Recently we have had so much rain in the UK, so here hoping the saying April Showers bring forth May Flowers is correct. I do love this time of year though, all of the new flowers starting to peek through, and knowing that summer is on it's way.

This is one of the newest Tilda's, and she hasn't got a name yet, she is from the add on Doohickey Volume 18 kit, and I thought she was perfect for this time of year! I have used my DI's to colour her in and match the Maja Design papers, as always there is a list at the end of the post with links direct to the products in Suha's shop.

I love this Sakura Branch, and how you can add as many flowers as you want, I have used papers from Maja Designs monochromes as they match the papers perfectly.

Along with the two tags behind the image, this vase is from the Volume 18 Doohickey magazine, and I have added a lilac to it, and lots of sparkle. Also tucked behing the image there is a hens net die from Gummiapan.

Some of the flowers that Suha stocks.

I have used a Gummiapan Stitched Nesting die to cut Tilda out.

My 'Arty' shot :)

From the store I have used:

Magnolia Sakura Branch Die
Gummiapan Nesting Stitched Rectangles
Magnolia Lilac Die
Maja Design Celebration 6x6 Paper Pad
Maja Design Celebration 12x12 (flower strip)
Maja Design MonochromesGummiapan Hen's Nest die
Magnolia Doohickey Volume 19 - Preorder
