Noor Design UK DT Card - Vintage Love

Hello everyone, how are you all?
I'm showing a card today for the Noor Design UK Blog made with the Maja Design Vintage Romance paper........oh I love this paper.....ok ok I love ALL Maja Design....but come on whats not to love!!
I thought I would use one of the images that come with the paper as its main focus.
All links to items used at the bottom of the post.
I love this image & I especially love the beautiful colours in this & the papers I've chosen for this card.

I cut the image out form the paper with the frame attached. I then cut out this beautiful Joy Crafts frame .......OMGoodness I love this die, I love the grandeur it adds to creations.
I then using the inner die cut out the the main image is under the die-cut, then I added the die-cut complete with white centre & then added the inner which I cut out & but popped this onto foam tape to give it dimension.........the photo below will show you better.... you can see the dimension it gives & the 3D type effect. In real life it really does look fabulous.

I added a Scrapiniec Brush Art Script 'LOVE' word & covered it in Shabby White Fran-Tage & added a couple of Sweetheart Blossoms ;-)
I also cut out a 'Love' postage stamp from the paper set & inked the edges with pumice stone & added a rose & a sweetheart blossom above it.
The inside I chose the paper that matched the front image........I will also add the same die-cut for a place to write.

All paper was inked at the edges with Pumice Stone & machine stitched.
I added beautiful Pleated Pearl Trim along the bottom....this really is so so pretty!!
Of course I had to add beautiful flowers, 2 fabulous leaf dies & some waxed cord, the white Tracy stocks & the purple is from my stash.

Tracy has added quite a bit of yumminess lately to her store, why not grab a cuppa & pop on over ot take a browse at what she has been adding......psst dont tell her I told you but she will be adding more soon ;-) Ssshhhh our secret ok ;-)

Well you lovely people thats it from me, I have a bedroom to strip then decorate. Hope you all have a wonderful day, take care.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

New Release At La La Land Crafts

Hello everyone I'm here today with my DT creation for La La Land Crafts & this week all the girls are showing you the new release......have you seen it yet?
If not I know its because you have been abducted & kept hidden away from cyber space ;-)

Well you are in luck because I will show you the new release here & show you what I made with a super duper cute stamp.
Arn't they awesome!! Oooh so hard to choose a favourite as well....
Ok I will now show which of these fabulous rubber stamps I used...
I have used 'Baby Pumpkin Luka'....isn't he so cute!! The 2 baby pumpkin's I think would also be fabulous for a baby's first halloween........little baby dressed up in a pumpkin...too cute ;-)

I used all the dies from the new release I love them ALL!!!
Sentiment at the bottom comes with the stamp.

The awesome spider wed I covered with Webby stuff & added a plastic spider in there too......well they came with the webbing so it seemed rude not to use one of them ;-)

Baby Pumpkin Luka was coloured in Copics..........yep hubster brought me some copics at the weekend & this is my first image with them. Gosh I'm so rusty but practice will make me better lol.
Colours used....
Skin - E11, E21, E00, E000, R81 for the cheeks.
Hair - E29, E25, E23
Outfit, shoes, pacifier - Orange - YR02, YR04, YR09, R89, Green - YG21, YG03, YG23, YG25(inspiration from J. Dove) Grey - W7, W5, W3, W1

The 'Broom' (LOVE) I cut out twice, once in Black cardstock then again in the co-ordinating paper. I stuck just the edges of the paper down & once dry I then rounded it give it kinda a 3D look instead of it being flat.........although these dies look awesome no matter what you do with them.
I finished off around the top with some twine. It looks fab IRL.

Paper I've used is Authentique 'Moonlit' 6x6 pad. I've stitched all around as always & matted onto black cardstock.

Hello everyone how are you all, hope you have had a weekend of lovely weather like we have up here by the sea......its been glorious, long may it last ;-) We had a lovely weekend away.

I'm here today with my DT for Noor Design UK & I have some pink, some shabby chic & some Scrapiniec........what a perfect combination :-)
All links to items used will be at the bottom of the post.
I have used the beautiful LemonCraft 'Just Love Me' papers which have had their edges inked with pumice stone, distressed & then machine stitched.........this really is such a beautiful pad. Available in 12x12 & 6x6.........I have used the 6x6.

I have added some more Scrapiniec chipboard at the side amongst the gorgeous flowers.
I've also sneaked a doily under there ;-)

I've added lots of Tracy's beautiful flowers, berries & Pomegranate Apples.......I also added a LemonCraft Button from the Just Love Me was perfect as it had a bird on it ;-)

Isn't this Lace Gwendoline just divine.......omgoodness it really is to die for, sooooo pretty.
I just had to take a close up for you.......
I used the Little Darlings Gilded Oval die to place my Scrapiniec Bird & Cage on, the chipboard was sprayed with white paint......any spray paint will do it. I also use white florist spray sometimes but its more subtle & softer, I usually use that for flowers to soften the colour sometimes.

Thats it from me, hope you like my shabby chic birdy card lol.
Take care & enjoy your day.
