Deep Ocean Challenge DT Card

Hello again this is my 2nd post today providing that my first has fact I'm hoping that this has published lol. Scroll down to see my Noor Design UK card.

So its time for a new challenge over at Deep Ocean Challenges this fortnight & the challenge is.....
.......Yep another heart one.........seems we are all in love this month show us that love baby ;-)

So my card to show is one I made for hubster's birthday which was last week on the 2nd. I actually made his cards last year but then one I kept looking at & couldntdecide if I liked it so decided to quickly make him another........yep in the dying hours the night before lol.

On the morning though I then couldnt decide if I liked the new one or not....argh!!! Was gonna give him them both & let him decided.......then was gonna pop the shop & buy one lol.
However I bit the bullet & gave him the new one.......
Luckily he loved it.......think he may be a bit bias though lol.
Papers are Maja Design Vintage Autumn.....I love these papers.....what do you mean I say that about them all.....noooooo that doesnt sound like me ;-) sssshhhhhh lol

The centre bit I cut & then the bit that was left I fussy cut the 2 balloons off & popped them onto foam pads. Of course all papers were machine stitched.

This adorable image is from LOTV & is from the Odd Dog range....I've kept looking at these & then decided to get some....however as I wanted quite a few it was cheaper to buy the whole lot for £15....yes £15 for 21 digi fab!!!
I coloured Odd Dog Balloon with distress ink refills & added Glossy Accents to his heart balloon.

The sentiment is Whimsy Stamps Bold Banner stamp & die from Noor Design UK. 
The 'Love You' text is form one of my new dies hubby got me the other week from CC Designs....its from Make A Card 12 Smoochies these make a card sets.......brilliant for simpler cards & foofy cards. I cut the Love You out twice & glued them together.

A very simple card.........hopefully I do a better job with the rest of the Odd Dog images....though they are perfect for the simpler cards lol.

Pop on over to see my teamies creations & why not join us.

Hope you all have a wonderful week. Thanks for stopping by.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

Bit Of Wine Maybe

Hi there how are you all? Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
Well this is my 2nd scheduled post as I'm currently away on a short break until Friday.

So my post today is for Noor Design UK & I'm showing you a card I made for the show that Tracy is next at, showing one of the new Magnolia stamps from the Recipe Collection........OMGoodness I love these sooooo much!!
I was hoping to have the tutorial this week but I completely forgot about my little holiday & making things for the show......yep brain freeze!!

I've used such pretty papers for this pink card today, they are Lemoncraft 'Heart Painted' & I inked the edges & machine sewn them....sooooo pretty & perfect for shabby chic cards as well.

How beautiful is that large flower.....swooooonnn. I cut the leaves off it separately then glued them down with my paper leaves made with 2 different dies, a Rosy Owl die & the thinner one is a die from the 'Rose & Heart' dies from the Recipe Collection.
The leaves were cut from Pion Design Palette Green l/

Of course I added some beautiful lace from Tracy's store........swoooon again!!

The Magnolia stamp is 'Wine Tasting Tilda' & I stamped her onto Fabriano & coloured her with distress ink refills & then gave the image a covering of Tim Holtz Glaze to protect the image. Tracy will be adding this to her store soon.........its fabulous stuff & my teamie Barbara uses it all the time & I think its a must for images coloured with distress ink.
I also covered Tilda's glass with Glossy Accents.
The sentiment next to Tilda is a Stempelglede Stamp set. 

The dies are Little Darlings, another one of my favourite dies. I cut off the scalloped pearls & added single ones on the image & a row of 3 in the top left corner.

I think this is one of my favourite stamps from this collection as she can be used for so many occasions. I have made a card using the Oven & Chef Edwin for the show but I will show you that another time ;-)

Ok thats it from me I will love ya & leave ya. Will hopefully be back later with another scheduled post.
Thank you so much for stopping by.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
