Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia

Hello everyone.
Well I'm today today with my last DT card that I needed catch up with, Ive still got the card that should have gone on the friday but it wasnt a DT card. I've re-typed half of this as it was typed up originally last week but then I deleted my signature watermark by accident so had to copy & paste onto a new post......yep Thicky Vicky strikes again lol.

Ok so the new challenge over at Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia is.....


.........easy peasy again for you lovelies. I went with Easter & used this Tilda that was coloured up when I first started back crafting last year.......yeah she has been in my coloured up box since then, hey there are some that have been there longer lol.
Lace, ribbon, doilies, seam binding are all from my stash.

Flowers are WOC & I added the Magnolia Doo-Hickey Swirl, think this die will be one of my all time faves!!
There is also a pocket with a tag in where the seam binding bow is.
Pearls & Scrapiniec Frame are from Noor Design UK.

Now about 2 weeks ago I brought a set of Pion Easter Greetings paper from here for £19.99 for the full 12x12 set & they are such pretty papers....I was taking a break from crafting when these were released so didnt have them :-( Now I do ;-) lol. Thought I would show you the inside so you can see the papers, I've got add somewhere to write on but wantedshow you first.
The die going along the bottom is a Fantasy die from Noor Design UK.

I added corrugated card which got the gesso treatment under the image & there is also a corner of it on the top right corner with a Butterfly on cut from the same paper collection.
There is also the Fantasy die running up the side.

These are the 2 tags that are hidden, well one is hidden in the pocket & the other you see peeking out, I cut it from the Pion paper collection, added an eyelet, waxed cord & a little rose.
The other tag I cut with a Magnolia die, added waxed cord & seam binding & then stamped Happy Easter on it with a Magnolia stamp I got from here.

The image is Magnolia 'Little Miss Tilda' from the Sakura Collection 2015, I still have a few of these I havn't coloured, yes I'm shamefully bowing head :-(
She was coloured with distress ink markers & I think the paper was Montval judging by the feel of it. I also added pearl spots around her & a few inked chickn wiring, faintly.

Please pop on over to visit my teamies as they really are fantasticly talented, also pop on over to see our 4 new girlies who are joining even more talent to inspire me...I mean us ;-)

Thanks for stopping by
Lotsa hugs to you all.

Deep Ocean & All About Magnolia Challenges

Helllooooo there everyone, hope you are all doing fine & dandy.
I am combining 2 challenges with one DT cardso that I can catch up with some of my posts.....I have so many in drafts & lots of orders to do.

Ok so the challenges I'm posting my DT cards for are Deep Ocean Challenges & All About Magnolia & both of their challenges are the same .......


.........although AAM you can also add your Spring creations for a chance to win a fabby prize from Magnolia & Craft Heaven store.
Papers used are Maja Design Vintage Spring.....I love these papers, yeah ok I love AAALLLLL their papers lol. I have iked them with Pumice stone, distressed them & machine sewn them.

Lace & seam binding are from my stash, also the doilies are. Apart from the postage dies all other dies are Magnolia Doo-Hickey dies, I've used the leaf from the Swirl & Leaf die & I've used Birch Tree die & Swirly Butterfly die. 
The rabbits at the bottom & the chicken wire dies are from Magnolia Doohickey Club Kit Volume 8.
There is also Magnolia Lovely Fence behind the bunnies ;-)

The stamp is another new release from the Spring Time collection & this one is called 'Tilda With Dotted Boots' I stamped her onto Fabriano & coloured her with distress ink refills.
I have to say I enjoyed colouring this one that much that I coloured her again in a different colour....that one is on a card yet lol.

As always inside has been decorated to match the front.
Flowers are WOC & I added little blossoms on the tree, I also cut the tree in half & added foam pads to one part so it raised it up to give dimension.

The Magnolia Happy Easter I stamped onto a scrap of Nyhavn by Maja Design. 

Thats it form me but please pop on over to see all my teamies creations.

Thank you for stopping by.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

Noor Design UK DT Post

Hello there everyone how are you all?
Well a few of my posts failed to publish so I have a few to catch up with now I'm back home after being away for the weekend.
First though I will have to start with todays post which is for the Noor Design UK blog & this week I've used one fo the super gorgeous new Magnolia stamps & teamed her up with Maja Design......oh Magnolia & Maja go so nicely together....I've always said its like they were made for each other lol.
All links will be at the bottom of the post to the items used.
All items are from Noor Design UK, except pink butterfly & doilies, they are from my stash.

This tulle goes soooooo incredibly beautifully with Maja Design Sofiero & the matting is the co-ordinating cardstock that Maja also released with this collection....OMGoodness so so pretty.

Now this Tilda got coloured up as soon as I got the new collection....I think I coloured up most of them lol. This one is called 'Sitting Spring Tilda' & she is from the Spring Time Collection. 
I stamped her onto Fabriano then coloured her using distress ink refills & 1 marker (her top as I love the colour of stormy sky in the marker) & the background I coloured using normal watercolour paints. I also added Pearl dots around her using a pearl pen.
I then went over the image with distress glaze to give it protection.

As always I have done inside to compliment the front. I've also distressed the papers & machine sewn all around them as well.

Thats it form me but I will be back later with my DT card for Deep Ocean Challenges then tomorrow I will have my DT card for LHOSM then All About Magnolia ;-)
Yes I was quite busy before I went away as I wanted get all my DT cards done plus I had orders to do & a birthday card for my Auntie to saw that one on Saturday ;-)

Well enough of my babble I will say tatty bye & thank you for stopping by,
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
