Swedish House Crafts - Cloudy Love Tilda Christmas Card

Hello, everyone!

I'm here with another creation for the Swedish House Crafts blog. 
I have made another Christmas card.

I used a couple of the new Roxstamps dies on my card. They are so delicate. They cut beautifully through my eBosser, and are great value for money.

Links to the products are in text, and can be found at the end of my post along with a special surprise for you!

I used Gummiapan old paper die to cut the base of my card, and layer the papers which are Maja Design "Joyous Winterdays" new collection. For the top of the card I used the new Roxstamps Curlicue edge decor die.

I used Tim Holtz Vintage photo distress ink to ink the edges of everything on my card apart from the arrangement.

I used the new Roxstamps heart wreath die to cut Joyous Winterdays chilly papers, and adhered it to the centre of the card on top of the doily.

I wanted to add some dimension to the hearts, so I decided to die cut the heart wreath again using the reverse of the paper, cut off the hearts, and adhere them one on top of the other with 2mm foam pads. I embellished the circles on the heart wreath with 5mm white pearl flatbacks

Cloudy Love Tilda is coloured with Polychromos pencils. I used Gummiapan Angelpost stamp to stamp around the outside of the centre piece of the heart wreath, and inked the edges with Vintage photo distress ink. I matted the image to the centre using 2mm foam tape, then I used glamour dust on Tilda's wings to give them some sparkle.

Here you can see the smaller floral arrangement. The cream beaded berries are from the store. The mulberry flowers and bronze angel wings are from my stash.

A closer look at the larger arrangement.

Inside the card is decorated to complement the front.

Now for a little something special for you! If you would like to order any of the products that I have used on my card, our lovely lady boss Suha is giving 5% off these products throughout December.

Christmas Heart Tilda - A New Challenge At LHOSM

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.
I hope you are well?

It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Lovely Haenglar or Sweet Magnolia blog
This is our final challenge of 2017
Our month long challenge theme is......................ANYTHING GOES
Our wonderful sponsor is The Rubber Buggy

I have made a Christmas card.

I used Christmas Heart Tilda from Magnolia A Lovely Christmas 2015 collection.

I coloured her with Polychromos pencils in sepia colours, and fussy cut around her.

I've also used some lovely dies from Doohickey club vol 17 Christmas/Winter on my card 😊

Suha, the store owner at Swedish House Crafts has one left to buy. So if you are interested in buying this gorgeous selection of Christmas/Winter dies, you can buy them HERE plus if you enter code DONNASAID5OFF at the checkout this will entitle you to 5% off your purchase of Vol 17. 
You can also use the code if you want to pre order Vol 18 or 19. How fab is that?

Here is my card

For the shape of my card I used KoKreate large frame frilly #2, and Maja Design "Home for the Holiday's papers.
Other dies used are Marianne Design Anja's Vintage decoration, Sizzix "On the Edge" snowflurries, Joy Crafts Ice crystal, and magnolia Doohickey bloomy tag.

I have inked the papers, and die cuts with Tim Holtz Vintage photo distress ink.

I created a fireplace scene using the new dies from Vol 17 Christmas/Winter.
I added 3mm red s/a pearl flatbacks to the garland, and added glamour dust to the flame.
I used 2mm foam tape behind all the die cuts to give a lovely 3D effect.

I used some sticky alphabet letters to spell the word NOEL.

For the Festive arrangement I used green moss, a cinnamon stick, pine cones, and wine coloured pomegranate apples.
I used Sizzix holiday greens to die cut the holly, and place it between the arrangement.

A closer look at Christmas Heart Tilda.
I have dotted her eyes with a white gelly roll pen, and used glamour dust on the heart to make it all sparkly.

Inside the card is decorated.

We would love you to come and join in with our current challenge.
