Noor Design UK DT Card

Hellooooo everyone, how are you all?
Well I hope this has published as its scheduled to as I'm away with hubster for a lovely cosy break in the caravan......3 days of doing nothing.....well almost nothing, still gotta cook brekkie every cant go away without a full english every morning ;-)

Anyhoo's I'm here today with my DT card for Noor Design UK & today I've used 2 stamps from Magnolia's latest release Spring Fever....
All links will be at the bottom.
I've used a softer pad with shades of pale blues & greys. Its actually called 'Condolence' but most paper can be used for a variety of occasions.
I've inked the edges with Pumice Stone distress ink.
 For the second layer of paper I used Shape Art Ornate & made a new shape with it, hopefully you can see in the pictures what I've done. The shape art was too big for this size square card so this is why I used the stencil to make my own..........another fab used for these shape arts ;-)
Below is the shape I made.

 The Magnolia stamps used are 'Bee Tilda' & 'Tilda's Laundry', both images have been coloured with Distress Ink Markers & Ink Refills & pads.
I fussy cut Bee Tilda out to place at the side. I also added Stardust Stickles to parts of the clothes on the washing line ;-)
I backed the Laundry image onto Kraft card then placed that onto the Joy Crafts 'Square Frame' die.

Used my favourite Swirl Leaf die & a couple of leaves from the Joy Crafts 0331 die & of course some flowers.

Well thats it from me. Pop on over to Noor Design Uk Tracy has fabulous new items in her store & there is more to this space as they say ;-)

Take care lovelies, hope you have a lovely week.
Thanks for stopping by.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxxxx

Precious Little Miracle

Hello all you lovely peeps out there, how are you all?
We have beautiful weather up in the northeast today.......sun is shinging so bright & after a week of miserbale weather it makes a nice change.

Well me & hubster are away for a few days tomorrow on our lonesome......well & the dog lol. Natalie is away to respite for 3 nights so we having 3 nights away......normally we go with all the family but as they are week days my sons are at work. So its just hubster, me & Holly for some quality time together, really looking forward to it.

Ok now this is the first card back that I made when I started crafting again...........I do love La La Land images & have told myself to use them more this year.
I have used one of my favourite pads by one of my favourite companies, yep Maja Design & these papers are from the 6x6 pad 'Vintage Baby' from Live & Love Crafts.
I inked all the edges with Walnut distress ink.......I think lol. I should have wrote it all down lol.

Here we have a mixture of flowers, seam binding bow & the dies I've used are my favourite 'Swirl Leaf' die & 'Feathers' die, both from Noor Design UK.
This gorgeous cute baby image is a digi from La La Land Crafts & although the card is new the image I coloured last year before I took my break. I have a box of images that are coloured & this one cried out at me to be used colouring I hope to get better this year, so may do this baby again in a month or 2 ;-)
So the image is called 'Baby Marci' & she also comes with sentiments but I didnt use any with this card.......sentiments used are from the Maja Design pad.
She is coloured with distress markers & pads, sorry not sure of the colours with me colouring it soooooo long ago :-(

PLease excuse these photo's as I took them last week late at night, maybe I should have taken fresh ones today doh!!!
Inside is decorated to compliment the front. There is lace & cheesecloth added in there as well from Live & Love Crafts, also the clay heart is from there as well.

I've also used Little Darlings 'Lovely View' die from Noor Design UK..........I lurve this die....whats not to love. Though tbh I love LOTS of dies lol.

Well thats it from me lovelies. I'm off to peg bedding out as its so nice then I have crafting to do for DT work while I'm away. Thankfully I dont really need pack as we will bring the caravan down tomorrow & stuff will go straight in there........saves it getting creased in suitcases.

Ok I'm going now lol..........boy I do babble on ;-)
Tatty bye peeps, hope you all have a great Sunday, we are at my eldest sons later for tea mmmmm.
Thanks for stopping by
Hugs Vicky xxx
