A couple more cards I have done. The top sentiment is from a couple of different stamp sets and the bottom sentiment is a whimsy stamp set. This is discontinued and I have ONE set available in store. the elephant is a Kassazz stamp from their new catalogue. the dies used on both the cards are Joy craft dies.  Flowers are again Wild Orchid crafts that I have in store and the little pink butterflies are from A Mothers Art available in store as well.  please drop by and have a look- my prices are very reasonable and although postage is charged at a flat satchel rate I do refund excess postage :-)

Whimsy stamp Hazel and Penny Black stamp Buzz in the Air

Oh Boy! my absence has been so long! I didn't realise I hadn't blogged for so long! I have been busy making cards and will post some of them for you to see.  I have been slack and not taken note of the copic colours I have used when colouring.  My online store is growing www.acraftersheaven.com.au and I am trying to source new and exciting products.  I have recently stocked products from Whimsy stamps and am just looking through the Penny Black wholesale site to bring you some of their gorgeous products! For now here are a couple of my more recent cards I have done.

Below is Hazel by Whimsy stamps.  I have used flowers by Wild orchids Crafts and Blue Embossing Enamel. I made the web by twisting together some white wrapped wire... all available to buy here.  I used cheesecloth under the layers that I bought at Spotlight.

The next card was supposed to be a thank you card for my husbands uni facilitator when he finished his placement.  He forgot to take it so now have it available to buy :-/ I used a Penny Black stamp called Buzz in the Air.  I will endeavour to add this to the shop in the near future :-) The Sentiment is a discontinued Whimsy set called mini chalkboard scripture sentiments. flowers are from my shop. the die used is a Joy Crafts die called Lacey Rectangle Frame.

assorted cards

Good morning, thanks for stopping by.  I hope everyone has had a wonderful break and for us here in Australia, the kids are back at school today YAY!!!! Hence why I have the time to show yo what I have been up to.  Well last year was HUGE for myself and my family.  I slowly started to get back into work after massive abdomen surgery, my husband started at uni for the beginning of his new career choice, and my kids settled into their new school.  On top of that I had my new little business which is growing every day and thanks to my wonderful loyal customers is becoming quiet the success :-) 

so enough about the boring... I wanted to share with you a couple of my recent cards.  I know I don't get on here all the time, but as with everyone, time just goes by so fast.

these first couple of cards are new baby cards using DP from Maja Designs.  these ones in particular are vintage baby ephemera cards available in store here. flowers are of course Wild orchid crafts and I have also used some fabric daisies which I am hoping to add to the shop today :-)  the little pram die is a memory box die.  Acetate butterfly is one of my own makes and the die cut flying butterfly on the third card is from a Tattered lace die set also available here 

The next card is made using a card topper in the image from Mo Manning.

The next bunch of cards are simple cards with verses on the front.  I tend to mask verses and add others to them so they say what I want (e.g. the last card was a christmas stamp which I masked out the christmas words and then stamp a birthday verse :-)  thanks for stopping by XO

please drop by my online shop I try and stock a good variety of items that you can't get in an everyday craft store XO Tania

60th Birthday card Commissioned

Good afternoon thanks for stopping by.  Today I have a commissioned card for a customer who wanted their own verse for their mum's 60th birthday.  The butterflies are cut with a tim holtz edge die called butterflight- cut twice and  one of the die cuts I cut out each individual butterflies and glued down the centre to give dimension.  The swirl matting is a joy crafts die.  flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts available in Australia here.  lace and pearl drops are also available here at A Crafters Heaven. 

For those interested, the font I used was AR DECODE and the size was 18.  I am not sure if everyone has access to this font, but it was already on my laptop free when I bought it, so I am assuming it is readily available XO

thanks for stopping by. Stay safe
XO Tania

Golden Anniversary Card

Here is a card commissioned to celebrate 50 years of marriage.  I used shiny gold card stock (which looks like copper in the photo) for the matting and the swirl topper (joy crafts die) as well as the insert.  The die cuts inside are Tattered lace sentiments, the numbers are from a set of My Favorite Things dies.  The verse on the front is a mixture of stamps I masked off as my customer wanted the word blessing or blessed in it. flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts available here. butterfly is hand stamped on to acetate, glitter embellished and cut out.

The inside of the card:
