Thankyou For stopping by to visit my little crafting corner. I have just started an online business www.acraftersheaven.com.au to sell my cards and I am also selling craft supplies. I love reading all your comments, and am happy to answer any questions.
Good morning, thanks for stopping by. Please meet Tilly Fairy. she is my newest addition to my Saturated Canary library (she has been available for some time and I could drool no longer) This is my first attempt at coloured hair- I am more a traditionalist when it comes to hair, but thought I would step outside my comfort zone with her :-) The birdhouses are from my new favourite die- Tattered Lace birdhouse row (available here) and I have use the lala lands heart banner die. paper is from a kaisercraft pad and rosette ribbon is from my stash. acetate butterfly is made by moi :-)
Good afternoon. Well I am starting to get back into my card making after what seems an eternity of recovery! Thats understandable when you think of all the beautiful new images over at Saturated Canary it's hard to stop yourself! This is the beautiful May from the 2015 bundle.... my second entry for the spring GDT call... and you should see the quality of entries! This is a pretty basic card- I have not used many die cuts... but you can have too much of a good thing sometimes ;-) I used the magnolia swirl and the memory box butterfly die cut. I made the pearl dangle charm and used WOC flowers (and yes I will pull out my finger and get them loaded onto my website sometime soon :-( )
A close up look:
and the colours used:
Skin: E 000, 00, 04 (lips), 21, 30, 95
Hair E 11, 13, 1, 59
B 000, 32, 34, 39
C 0, 1, 3 (dotted surrounds)
This was the first time I used E 95 for the darker skin shading on the hairline and ears and it only took a very thin line, but the effect was quiet nice :-)
Well that time of year has come when Krista puts the call out for her spring GDT. you get to choose an image from her new year bundle available in her shop ... you get 5 digis for $10 GREAT VALUE!!! enter your creation here on Facebook
I chose Daydreams. Isn't she just beautiful!! I also did a smaller card base so I could go beyond the card with embellishments and yet still fits into my boxes. I used dies from memory box, magnolia, spellbinders and whimsy. flowers are WOC.
colours used were:
E 000, 00, 21, 30, 41, 44, 59, 74, 95
RV 91, 93, 95, 99
W 0, 1
C 0, 3, 5 (shading dots around image)
Thanks for popping by. Wish me luck with the GDT :-) stay safe XO Tania
Good morning! Well it seems like years since I posted a card here! thanks for sticking with me. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with lots of love and laughter. Here's hoping the new year will be prosperous for all :-)
Well last year ended a bit hard for me... as some might be aware, I suffer from crohn's diease and have been dealing with it for over 20 years now. Well at the start of December, I had to have an operation to remove the affected bowel. I am now on the road to recovery, still sore, but it has slowed me enough to do up a couple of cards :-)
This gorgeous image is a discontinued digi from Saturated Canary called Cerridwen. I think I hit the criteria for this card... my friend wanted for her mum a birthday card. Her mum's fav colours are purple and green and she loves butterflies and flowers. I used dies from memory box, tattered lace, joy crafts and magnolia. flowers are of course WOC- which you can now get from my online store www.acraftersheaven.com.au .

Good morning, thanks for stopping by. Well I have been super busy lately with work and kids... BUT most of my time has been spent setting up a new business!!! I have an online shop now www.acraftersheaven.com.au
would be lovely for you to drop by and have a look at what I have. I am just starting, so I don't have much up there yet, but stay tuned, I have some awesome products coming!
So onto my card. I have used the lovely Ava by Saturated Canary. This was a special order for a customer who wanted a purple and gold 40th birthday card. The gorgeous parasol die cut is a tattered lace die (which I have coming for my shop). flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts. The inside die is a whimsy called Dainty Notables 4. The verse is Raindrop echo's also by Whimsy. Butterflies are acetate glitter ones made by me :-)
