Your Wedding DT for Swedish House Crafts

Hi everyone I'm here today with a wedding card using 2 Magnolia images, one is the main image & the other is hidden somewhere ;-)
Quite a bit of colouring on this card but I really enjoyed making it,

The flower I made myself with foamiran, if you look closely behind that you can just see the Roxxtamps Heart Wreath die cut out twice, once in white cardstock & once in pink vellum.

The flower that is coming down from the foamiran flower is a die form the last Magnolia Doohickey Collection Volume 18. I cut it out in watercolour paper then painted it using distress ink refills.

I added corrugated cardboard painted with white gesso to add texture & depth to the card.
The bow is made with a Magnolia Doohickey die that you can pre-order from Swdish House Crafts. It was cut out in the same Maja Design paper as the card.
Down the centre I added another Magnolia die called the Recipe Card & layered it up on top of the corrugated cardboard.

The gorgeous Magnolia stamp is called Mr & Mrs Magnolia from the You're INvited Collection. I stamped onto watercolour paper using the fabulous Tim Holtz stamping platform & coloured them with distress ink refills.....I have a few stamping platforms & I have to say my absolute favourite is the Tim Holtz one, love the size & especially love the sturdiness & quality of it.

Here is the image that was hidden. I used one of the Magnolia mini stamps to co-ordinate with the main image, stamped & coloured it with distress ink refills & then cut it out using a Magnolia Tag die. Its another fabulous way of using those mini stamps. Though this was not originally my idea, I saw it a long time ago from a very talented crafter whose colouring I absolutely adore.......I'm hoping to be like her when I grow up lol. Link to her blog is right here.

For the background colour I used a few different colours to get a sunset sort of colour. To do the backgrounds I use the Watervalve brushes as I find they are fab & quick for colouring the background. I dont fill mine with water I use my water bucket just like I do when Im using my sable brushes.

Here you can where the tag goes & I added waxed cord in white & in pink & some white seam binding & a gorgeous bit of bling to the centre.
The 'Love' metal clip thingy is form my stash as is the foamiran.
I have used 1 sheet of Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics, I've used both sides & its the '7th May' favourite sheet of the whole collection......need get more I think lol.

Thats it from me, thank you for stopping by. Take care.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

Home Sweet Home

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.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
