Bring Me Olives..

Hello Ladies and Gents!

We are starting this week later than usual but sometimes things just get in the way, don't they?
But we are now ready to share with you the very first creation for our Birds and Roses theme..

This gorgeous card was made by our fantastic DT Barbara..


Do we have roses?
We do! Lots of them..
And the bird?
Hidden inside.. LOL!

The amazing papers our Barbara used are from the Easter Greetings collection from Pion Design..
Easter will be here any time and since these are soooooo gorgeous I suggest you grab some more while we have them on offer..
You will find all these beautiful designs HERE..


Here's our Olive Tilda from the Little Italy Collection 2015..
Coloured with Distress Inks and sealed with some Distress Micro Glaze..
Barbara added some nice accents on the image and around her..
The silver dots are made with Liquid Pearls and the olives are all covered with Glossy Accents..
Why doesn't the camera pick up all those wonderful details? Arrrgh..
The highlights on the eyes are made with a Ranger White Opaque Pen..


Lots of layers..
Faux and real stitches..
Some splashes of Gesso mixed with Texture Paste here and there..
A tiny bit of lace and a charm..
And lots of wonderful WOC flowers and berries of course..

Barbara cut out the image with one of the Magnolia Doohickey dies from the Rounded Frames and Tags set..


Hope your day gets better and better!
Thanks for popping by!

I Love You..

Hello lovely people!

This week is slowly coming to an end but we have our DT Izabela here today with another special creation for our Love is just Love theme..
She says that love comes in many colors..
Sometimes happy and joyful and sometimes pensive and nostalgic..
Sometimes Red..


 ..and sometimes Blue..
Like this beautiful card..

Izabela had fun once again playing with Maja Design papers..
She picked three gorgeous 6x6 Paper Pads and mixed all those gorgeous patterns together..
But there is some Pion paper on here too..
The solid cardstock you see under the patterned papers and behind the image..
That is the Pion Blue III from the super awesome Pion Design Palette..


Lots and lots of layers..
Izabela is digging herself into mixed media also and you can clearly see how this affects her cardmaking style..


Some things that she can't stop using when making cards?
Our fabulous WOC flowers and Vintage Seam Binding..
And the Rose Leaf Doohickey die of course..
She used another Magnolia die on here and it's the Scalloped Tag that she tucked behind that sentiment and frame..


Some Scrapiniec chipboard gorgeousness..
The Park Avenue 2-Layers Sign Frame and a cute arrow from the Brush Art Elements Love Arrows set..
Check out the amazing effect she achieved with stamping that beautiful Stempelglede motif and adding hints of blue to it..

Lots of sparkle everywhere and some Ballerina Liquid Pearls to top it off..


Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Tina and the Craft Heaven Shop DT

A touch of Love..

Hi there!

Here we are with our DT Susen and another
Love is just Love
creation..


Susen is a big fan of Stempelglede stamps so she decided to have a play with those this time..
She chose the Grunge Flourish Hearts set..
She stamped the first heart on the paper and then a second heart (the one on top is not the same stamp) on another sheet of paper with a different ink colour
and cut the whole image out with a stitched cirle die.. Then she used a  matching scalloped circle die on the beautiful Pion Red II (from the Pion Design Palette) and placed it behind that.. 




 All the other papers used on this card are from Pion Design as well..
This is the gorgeous To My Valentine collection..
If you are a fan of red you simply have to get these..
Especially now..
We have a special promotion on these going on this week and their price has never been this low..
You will find them all HERE..

She placed some corrugated cardboard covered in Gesso behind the focal point and some cheesecloth too..
The paper edges are machine sewn..


Our Susen used several other dies on here..
A love sentiment, some Doohickeys..
The Tilda Doily, the fab Old Swedish Lace and the So Wrapped Lovely that we see on her creations a lot..

The flowers..
All from our WOC range..
She mixed some Big Lily Flowers, Open Roses, Rosebuds, Wild Roses, Cherry Blossoms and Sweetheart Blossoms..


A few half-pearls here and there and that's it..
Hope to find you all here tomorrow too..

Have a great day!

Hugs, Tina and the Craft Heaven Shop DT
