Hi everyone I'm here today with a Wedding Card in a shabby chic kinda style.........oooh I lurve shabby chic ;-) It's my DT Card for Noor Design Uk.
So over the weekend I finally got chance to play with my DT Kit that Tracy sent us.......OMWord I am going to start with the papers I've used on this card. Now let me start by saying I truly adore Maja Design papers & nothing else compared........that was however until I got my hands on these gorgeous Craft & You papers. The quality is fantastic & they are excellent value for money. I loved them that much that instead of getting the latest Maja Design release I went over to Tracy's shop & ordered LOTS of paper.......I love paper but I'm fussy............these are beautiful papers at a fraction of the cost.....
Anyway I better show you my card lol.
All links are at the bottom of the post. Tracy is now stocking WOC flowers, she has a few on her website but there are more to come soon. The papers are Crafts & You 'My Wedding'........although these can be used for much more than weddings.
I've inked the edges with Pumice Stone distress ink & added gesso in places as well.
The honeycomb shaped chipboard is Scrapiniec & has been painted with white gesso. Tracy will have this in stock soon........ I love this honeycomb bit, it adds that extra bit of something.
In the top right corner I added a Scrapiniec Corner chipboard, I painted it with white gesso & added dots of pearl with a White Pearl Pen.
These chipboard shapes from Scrapiniec are awesome & want them all.........eventually lol.
This chipboard was in a set & you get 5 pieces of chipboard altogether including 2 frames.
So the lovely kissing couple I fussy cut out from the 'My Wedding' sheet 07, I added white gesso & some dots with the Pearl Pen for their eyes. I also fussy cut out that backing the sentiment is on then placed that onto the Oval die.
I also placed CheeseCloth underneath the oval die.
The sentiment is LOTV.
Again from sheet 07 I cut out one of the circles & turned it into a cabochon adding the cabochon cover which is from my stash. I added another Scrapiniec chipboard, the hearts on the arrow which Tracy will be adding to Noor Design Uk very soon.
As I've covered up the paper I thought I would show you just how pretty it is so I've took a photo of the inside before I add a place to write a message. Isn't it just so pretty, trust me the photo's dont do this paper justice.
At the side I fussy cut yet again from sheet 07 half a doily & placed it between the two layers of paper & added pearl dots. I also cut out the small butterfly from the sheet & there are still loads left to cut out.........its brilliant!!
The rolled roses I used the die shown below & sheet 03, I inked them & added a little bit of gesso. The leaves are also a new die from Crafts & You & cuts perfectly everytime.
Well thats it form me, why not pop on over to see what new items Tracy has added & also what is due in very soon ;-) Lots of yummy things including the new Whimsy stamps........I've ordered some of those, they are sooooo darn cute!!
Thanks for stopping by, take care.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
