Deep Ocean Challenge DT Post - Halloween

Hello everyone I'm running quite late with my DT post for Deep Ocean Challenge sorry :-(
The challenge this fortnight is........
HALLOWEEN gotta lurve Halloween!!
This year I've decided to make my grandchildren Gift Bags for Halloween & we are going to fill them with sweets, chocolate & little toys........its a Halloween Goodie Bag ;-)
Today I'm showing you the one I made for my granddaughter Payton........she loves purple so she has a purple themed gift bag.
I have to say I really REALLY enjoyed making this & I love this paper, I've used Pion Design's The Witching Hour. The sheets I've used are 'Border's', 'Haunted House' & 'Spider's Web'. All have been distressed around the edges & machine sewn.

Dies used are Magnolia & La La Land Crafts. I also added soft webbing in the top right corner & a little bow to the sitting cat. The cat lying down is from Magnolia Doohickey club volume 8 & I added some string pearl to the neck.

I added a tag to write a little message, the tag is La La Land Crafts.

Some dies are popped onto foam to give dimension & a few dies I also cut out in the spider web paper.
The grass behind the Magnolia fence is Memory Box, the trees are Magnolia.
The main focus is the haunted house on the pion sheet, I used this as the main focus & built around it. I didnt plan anything & went completely with the flow lol.
I added orange & yellow stickles to the lights on the house & the leaves on the tree for added impact. Looks fab in real life.
I also added yellow stickles to the Magnolia lamp post.

I added black lace along the bottom under the border & black lace tied around the handle. I cut out letters from the Border sheet to spell Paytons name. The die underneath is an older one but cant remember who it is by, will add it if I remember.

Well thats it form me I'm off to the hairdresser's in 5 minutes so better shoot.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

Noor Design UK DT Card

Hello everyone how are you?
I'm here today with another Christmas card, I lurve making christmas cards, this is my favourite time of year.
I've used the beautiful Pion Design Night Before Christmas, some Christmassy Scrapiniec .......and a few other bits of course ;-)
I lurve & I mean LURVE these gorgeous colours in this collection, these golds are stunning!!!

Top right & bottom right corner is some Scrapiniec chipboard, some I left plain & some I've heat embossed with gold embossing powder..... So the wording 'Joy' I heat embossed gold & on the houses at the bottom I heat embossed the trees.

I decorated inside as well. I've decorated the whole card using all 4 squares of the sheet (links below).
The candle die is a new die from Joy Crafts, I cut one out in white & used part of it inside & cut another in matching Pion Design Palette Ocra II.

I've used the fantastic Poinsettia die by Creative Expressions, I soooooooo love this die!! This time I've also used the Creative Expressions Pinstriped Poinsettia stamp. I've stamped the poinsettia onto vellum paper & heat embossed in gold embossing powder, shapped each petal & layered them up. 
They also look gorgeous in silver ;-)

I've used one of the gorgeous images from Images From The Past on the front & one of the verses from the same sheet inside. I cut the image out with Little Darlings Fancy Rectangle, I also used the same die for the verse & another one will be added to the bottom for writing a personal message on.

Its quite a simple-ish card for me......I did say quite lol.

Thanks for stopping by, why not pop on over to Noor Design UK, Tracy has added soooooo many new goodies including another release of Magnolia stamps, doohickey Volume 13 & lots, lots many to mention.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
