Hello everyone, yay its the weekend, my favourite time of the week as it's quality family time.
My head has not been screwed on right this week at all and not just crafting!
I've used "My Own Key Tilda" from the You Are Invited collection and I coloured her with distress ink refills and covered her bow on the key in glitter to give the girl a bit of bling.
Behind her I have added a House using Magnolia House Tag dies from the same collection. You get a little house with it as well as a key, I didn't use the key but the little house I added in co-ordinating design paper to act like a door, the roof also matches. The butterflies are from the same paper collection as I have used on the card. The tiny white butterfly at the bottom of the card is a Gummiapan Stamp which I stamped onto vellum and heat embossed with white embossing powder and fussy cut out.
I have added two more Magnolia DooHickey dies at the top. The first one is the Dream Tag from the Butterfly Dreams Collection, which I cut in the co-ordinating paper. The butterfly is from my stash. I've also added a key which was cut using another Magnolia die, Vintage Keys from the Sweet Rainbow collection.
I've also used the Magnolia Love Typewriter dies from the You Are Invited Collection. There is also a brand new die used on here from Gummiapan. It's the Postage Stamp Rectangle Nesting dies and they are fabulous. They are also available in a Square too. Pop on over to see the yummy new products Suha has got in and more coming.
The yummy scrummy paper is Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics Collection........oh my I lurve this collection and a little part of me cries when I have to cut it....I cannot hoard it forever though can I lol! The tag is also from that collection and I stamped "Home Sweet Home" on it and added a charm from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a fabulous weekend.
With the same colors I created the spots. I stamped one side of the card with Gummiapan Stamp - Text Love is Patient, I have distressed the edges and inserted the wonderful die Gummiapan Die - Good Luck... the effect you see in the picture is thanks to the embossing pad and the embosser powder ... in the video you find the procedure!!!
then I glued my watercolor paper on the patterned paper and inserted a twine! I post the video where you can find step by step the whole process !!!
Donna here on Swedish House Crafts blog today with a pink card featuring a couple of Magnolia mini stamps.
Links to the products are in text, and can be found at the end of my post. Lookout too for a special offer code from me below.
I used Roxstamps Curlicue decor edge die to cut the design paper, and fixed it behind the card front at the top. I embellished it with 3mm sticky white pearl flatbacks from my stash! I also used lots of other dies that are available to buy at Swedish House Crafts. The pretty lace is from my stash.
The mini stamps come unmounted. You will need to mount them onto a sheet of EZ Mount prior to stamping them onto your choice of card. The pink design papers that I used are from the new Maja collection called Celebration.
The mini stamps were so easy to colour, what with being small, but I really enjoyed colouring them with my Polychromos pencils. I used Gummiapan nesting stitched squares for the base of my card, and to layer the papers, and white card.
I stamped Bunny Tilda, coloured her, and cut around her. I used 3D foam tape on the back of Tilda, and adhered her to the bottom of the background.
I stamped a floral background onto Bristol board cardstock and cut out using Gummiapan nesting stitched square. The flowers are from my stash. The banners, and birdie are Gummiapan dies.
Behind my flower arrangement, you can see the Gummiapan hens net die. I cut it using Maja Celebration papers.
The toadstools, and cute hedgehog are dies that were included in Magnolia Doohickey club vol 16.
sadly, due to the kits being limited edition, vol 16 is no longer available, but you are able to pre order vols 19, and 20 in store. You will also be entitled to 5% off your pre order by using code;

Inside the card is decorated to complement the front.

Hi guys, I've made another card using the gorgeous papers by Maja Design from the Sofiero collection. These papers are one of my absolute favourites, they are also available on sale as single sheets too. I love the muted images and soft colours and patterns.
As you can see I also used two of the tags from the Ephemera sheet, these are so gorgeous and simple to use. I simply cut round them, edged them with a little distress ink then added an eyelet on the top
and threaded some twine through.
I layered these on the top of the doodled circle die by Gummiapan. These dies cut fabulously and have some awesome designs and are a really good price, do check them out.
I wanted a little interest at the bottom of the tags, so I cut an envelope out of some vellum and stamped a rose head from a reprint stamp Suha has in store and is on sale too. I stamped it out with a versamark pad then used embossing powder over it, which I heat set with my heat tool. Then on the other side I used the adorably cute typewriter die by Magnolia. It comes with the lovely love insert too, this slips into the die, (how cute!!!)
I finished my card off with some of the rose buds to follow the theme, Suha has some gorgeous flowers in stock, check those out too!! but don't buy them all I need some, Lol
Today I have a little tag for Valentine's Day I made. I used the paper from Maja design. I love them.You can find them in Suha's store. I chose the "Cloudy Love Tilda" stamp from the A Touch of Love collection that I coloured with my copic markers.
Hello, friends! It's Nancy here today with my final snowman share for the season. *sniff*sniff* I love Winter and always hate to see it go! Yet I also love Spring, and it's arrival is always wonderful to see! So I'm happy to be moving on to Spring projects :o)
I wanted to keep my card colours soft and frosty. I found that these papers from the Walking in the Forest Collection worked beautifully. I just added some matching pale blue card stock from my stash.
This sweet Tilda with Little Snowy is so adorable. I coloured her up to match the papers. I also added a bit of Stickles here and there. She's all sold out in the shop right now but Suha would be more than happy to order her in for you. Just use the pre-order link listed below.
These Gummiapan Snowflake dies are a must have die! They're such a beautiful size and they cut like a dream for such an intricate die. I simply added a little rhinestone to the centre.
The Gummiapan Snowman die was the perfect final addition. I added a little strip of white paper to the back, and then filled the holes with Stickles. He makes such a lovely frosty friend!
This was such a fun card to make! I hope you had fun looking at it! See you again soon!
I have a set of mixed media tags to share today using Embossing Folders from Crafter's Companion and Gummiapan.
Tag 1 :Start off by spraying a blank tag with shimmer spray and allow to dry. Stamp around the tag with the alphabet background stamp and then apply a stencil mask to the tag. Paint on another ink colour with a paint brush and then cut out a small rectangle from acetate. Emboss it with the Basket Weave Folder and paint over with gesso before applying a coat of gold paint over the top.
Ink a small tag and then emboss it with the Leaf Vein Embossing Folder. adhere the acetate and tag to the edge of the larger tag and then add thread to the tag. Add the hearts to the little tag with a few enamel dots on. Finish by adding some stamped butterflies and words.
Tag 2: Spray a blank tag with brown ink and then emboss it with the Wood Grain Embossing Folder and rub over with gold paint. Add jute ribbon to the background and then cut out a integrated rectangle from green card and stick that down.
Cut out two small tags, one from card and one from acetate and apply ink and paint to them. Wrap the larger tag in torn matching paper and then add lace to the bottom before sticking it down. Wrap thread around the smaller tag and then glue it to the edge of the other tag. Add a sentiment to the tag and decorate with small butterflies and embellishments.
Tag 3: Emboss a large blank tag with the Pebbles Embossing Folder and add a stencil to the background. Paint the tag with blue ink and use metallic paint to highlight the embossing. Add white thread to the base.
Cut out a smaller tag and emboss it using the Leaf Vein Embossing Folder. Decorate with a few different trims and then cut out the Doodle Heart out of card and paint with blue metallic paint.
Design papers used for this project are from Maja Design - Celebration. I added a picture from the side so that you can see how the album is folded together.
The inside ...
Dies used on this project are mostly from Magnolia (House tag, ...) Key and Key hole, ladder, hearts ... these dies are from Magnolia's Doohickey kits. There are still a few kits available to pre-order HERE.
I used a few different Gummiapan stamps on my project. I stamped Stockholm Post Stamp and Angelpost to the front (around the image) and in the empty space inside (I meant to add a sentiment).
Another Gummiapan stamp used is the Camera stamp. I stamped it on the Pearl Monochrome paper to show the recipient that this is an album and he/she can put photographs inside these empty slots.
I have challenged myself to make a masculine Valentine - that is to say a Valentine without any flowers, lace or even hearts. And this is what I came up with - an easy to make card suitable for nearly all occasions (even a baby!). After all, you don't have to say "love" or draw hearts to make someone understand that you love him :)
I have used some dies and stamps by Gummiapan and Magnolia as well as Maja Design papers to create this project.
