Have dinner with me? | By Lou

Hello everyone.

It's Lou in with a post for you today and I am sticking with the lovely autumnal colours peeking out from the end of summer now!

The Pion Design 6x6 Complete collection Summer Falls into Autumn papers are just the right blend of autumn prettiness that I needed. Just look at how beautifully they combine...

and then, of course, there is beautiful Sitting Tilda. Oh, how I love her little expression whilst she is just sitting there!! she is just so sweet!

I used some dies from my stash, but luckily Suha has these amazing Pierced Scalloped Circles Nesting dies in the shop you can use to get the same effect  around the treat cup ( also from my stash) to fill with little popcorn kernels for the super cute recipient of this card to make us some popcorn to share!! so naturally, I needed the  Have dinner with me text to remind the little guy I need to share that yummy popcorn once it's made please!!

These papers really are so beautiful, I love the little details Pion included in the corners.

They really do set a beautiful little scene with their collection papers, don't they?

Welcome to my Birthday Tilda | By Laurigami

Hello everyone , 
I hope you have sun and high temperatures like us, this is not normal, so there is a return of colds at home.

For my card, I used the "Welcome to my Birthday Tilda" stamp that I coloured with my Copic markers. The sky and the grass were made with distress ink.

I used Neenah paper to colour my scene and I used Maja design paper (celebration).

More details

Here is the list of products I have used that are temporarily unavailable. Watch to see when they come back in stock

Dino Wall Hanging | by Olga

Hi friends,

Today I have stepped away from Holiday cardmaking for a bit to create this wall hanging for a little boy's birthday. It is supposed to be hanged onto a large gift bag and then used as a decoration after a party is over. 

I have used Old Stars die set by Gummiapan as a base - can you see those lovely tattered edges? The largest star has a little scene on it with the Origami T-Rex starring. I stuck down his image onto an old book page and cut it out. This way it looks a bit like it IS made out of old paper using origami technique. 

As always, find a beginning to end video tutorial below! This project was quick to create and a lot of fun too!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a fantastic weekend!

Joyous Winterdays Santa Claus | By Donna

Hello, everyone!
Donna here with a Christmas card that I have made using Maja Design "Joyous Winterdays" papers.

Links to the products are in text, and can be found at the end of my post.

I cut the image using Gummiapan stitched rectangles, and matted it onto a larger rectangle using "Joyous Winterday's" papers. The 3mm white pearl flatbacks are from my stash!

The die cut tree is from Magnolia Doohickey club vol 16, and the die cut sled is cut from Magnolia Doohickey club vol 17. I attached a length of natural twine to the sled.

Behind the the image, I placed a couple of Gummiapan doodle circle die cuts.

The flowers are from my stash!

Inside the card is decorated to complement the front. The snowflakes inside the card have been cut using Gummiapan snowflake die.

Thanks for stopping by today! You can find my blog HERE

Joyous Winterdays | By Lynn

Hello everyone, Lynn again here today with a Christmas card.

I've used the 6x6 paper pad Joyous Winterdays by Maja for the basis of my card. It is out of stock but it will be back soon! You could always use the 12x12 sheets which I have linked to below.

I used the Roxstamps hearth wreath and then added the elements to it. I tucked this little label cut from a Pion label design sheet into the centre and highlighted it with a glitter pen. The cherub heads are from the Pion tags sheet.

I've dotted these oh so cute gummiapan angels around the card. This is the small size but you can get them in three sizes.

I've used different combinations of these cream, cranberry and silver berries all over the card in bunches.

I added two gifts to the bottom corner which are from Gummpian. Finally I added sequins here and there. The cream ones I used are not in stock but you could use silver ones.

Thanks so much for looking. You can find my personal blog here.

You Can Do It Tilda | By Lou

Good Morning everyone,

It's Lou in with a post for you today. I fancied making something a little different this week and went for a little gift to go in the Slimmer of the week basket at my Slimming World group for this coming Saturday.

Fixer Upper You can do it Tilda & wood wall and the little Fixer Upper Breathe text were just so perfect for this job with her super sweet little fist pump and those beautiful words.

I stamped Tilda first and then masked her up to stamp the little wooden wall twice. Then I fussy cut her out and added some colour using my promarkers. I die cut a tag shape wit dies from my stash and then covered it with some old Magnolia stamps papers. Boy oh Boy I miss them making papers like they used to, they were the most delicious papers! I mounted Tilda onto a little foam so she stands out even more. She looks so super sweet ready to inspire someone, doesn't she? 

I stamped that beautiful sentiment and then heat embossed it to make it pop from the background, look how pretty it looks with its shine!!

I still very much love using the little Gummiapan Dies Button Heart to add a little love into my projects. I think it is probably my most used die!! I tied a little twine through it to finish it off.

And what's at the back?!! it's my little offering for the basket, 2 yummy Alpen Light bars for someones Healthy B treat! It's so lovely to take crafting into my normal little routine and use it for something useful. I really hope I can inspire someone else to do the same, that's the fun of crafting after all!
