Deep Ocean Challenge DT Card

Hello everyone I'm back again with another DT card this time for Deep Ocean challenges. Yep another fortnight has rolled on by & its time for a new challenge & this fortnight the challenge is......
Dots and/or Stripes can use either or both of these on your creations.

My papers are the gorgeous new updated version of Lemoncraft 'Heart OfRoses' now the first pad was gorgeous but oh oy this updated version really is sooooo pretty & you get the bonus sheet of the inside cover....when you put them side by side &look at them you really see the so pretty!!

I added 2 different laces from my stash, a charm & a double bow with seam binding from Noor Design UK & of course some bling ;-)

Here is a better view of the papers, so pretty & soft, perfecft for shabby chic cards.
I've done the inside to compliment the front as always but only added 1 lace.
The stars are dies, the larger one from Magnolia Doohicket set volume 12 & the smaller is from another die but cant remember the brand.
The centre shape was cut from CC Designs Shapers 1.

The stamp is from the latest Magnolia Emoji collection & this one is called 'You Are A Star Tilda' & I think I enjoyed colouring this one the most.....I absolutely love this one, ok this one & another one but I havnt blogged that card yet ;-)
I stamped her onto Fabriano watercolour paper & coloured her with distress ink refills.
I added stardust stickles to all the stars.....stars have gotta sparkle havnt they ;-)
I also added pearl dots around the image & then cut her out using the same CC Design die & layering up a frame, the spotty paper is actually from the first Heart Of Roses pad.

I recently got a new die & the only place I could seem to find it in stock was on Amazon & luckily I have Prime so got it on Sunday. Its a Penny Black die......I lurve this die, its fabulous & may get used a lot for all sorts of cards.......
The sentement is an old Whiff Of Joy stamp set & I cut it out using a Little Darlings die.
The star die you see going across is from a Magnolia Doohickey sey volume 9, I also added another one under the bark star.

Now I made the base of this card then went see what new challenge was over at Midweek lol so this is going off their Bingo Board.....well nearly I forgot all about chipboard & didnt do shaped as I had already made the base..........but otherwise its the full board lol.
Flowers are all WOC from Noor Design UK. I also added a pin....I neglect those, I always seem to forget about them.
The large pearls were ivory but I coloured them with a copic.

Please pop on over to see my teamies creations, they are so fabulous.
Hope you will join us in our Stripes and/or Spots challenge, cant wait to see what you make & you could win a £10 voucher to spend at Noor Design UK.

Thanks for stopping by, big hugs to you all

Noor Design UK - All Dressed Up

Hello everyone how are you all?
I'm here today with inspiration for the Noor Design UK blog & today I'm using one of the new Little Darlings releases due in the store soon & the latest Pion papers which have already landed & a few Little Darling dies.
All links will be at the bottom of the post.
The gorgeous papers I've used are Pion Design 'Theodore & Bella' collection........omgoodness these are beyond adorable...they are soooooo cute!! I've inked the edges slightly & machine stitched all aroun them.
I've used 1 sheet on my card & just used opposite sides.

This sentiment comes with the stamp & I stamped part of her foot next to it........ The die used to cut it out Little Darlings.

I also used another separate Little Darlings sentiment for the 2nd sentiment & the same die.

The LDRS All Dressed Up stamp is called 'Prosecco Time' & I coloured her with copics.
Colours used are............
E04, E11, E21, E00, E000 - Skin
E59, E39, E37, E35, E31 - Hair
RV99, RV95, RV93, RV91 - Outfit & Shoes
C3, C1, C0, Blender Pen - Background
W5, W3, W1, W0 - Ground
I also added Stardust Stickles to her wine glass & Pearl Dots around the image.

I used Little Darling Fancy Rectangle die to cut the image out & then matted her onto Pion Design Palette cardstock.
The banners in the middle cam with Fancy Rectangle die & the Heart Buttons were made with dies from Fancy Squares die & I added waxed cord through it.
I added flowers & pearls & pretty lace. All in all I kept the card simple as this is such a fabulous image & I wanted her to be the star of the show lol.

Why not pop along to the pre-order section to see the full range of LDRS Stamps &Dies, LDRS Dies are fantastic & cut first time every time, they are some of my favourite dies......rectangle & squares I think I use more than any other die lol.

All About Magnolia

Hello everyone hope you all had a lovely weekend.
I'm running a tad late as I totally forgot what day it was. I blame my 2 sons as I went the gym with them this morning & I love the weights but I stick to the womens section but today decided venture onto the big stuff & OMG my arms are killing me.....I'm gonna know about it inthe next 2days lol.....but they say no pain no gain lol.

Ok so its challenge time over at All About Magnolia & this month we have an easy one for you all............
All About Your Favourite Colours easy is that, just make something in your favourite colours.
Now in real life I dont have a favourite colour but in the crafty cardy world I have 3, pinks, blues & pastels lol. However I could not choose, so I used all 3 colours lol.
This is also a card I made for Tracy's next show over at Noor Design UK, so 90% of whats on this card you can get from Noor Design UK.

I added a Scrapiniec Birthday be honest I forgot I had brought these they were hiding in my scrapiniec basket at the back still unopened.
I've also added some beautiful lace, flowers, apple pomegranates & berries & the leaves are a Joy Crafts die here.

I have used another of the new Emoji stamps, this one is called 'Cause I Love You' & I stamped her onto Fabriano watercolour & coloured her with mainly distress ink refills. Now I coloured her as soon as I got her but will try remember the colours.......
Skin - Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar & Fired Brick for cheeks
Hair - Antique Linen, Gathered Twigs
Top - Stormy Sky (pen as its a purpley colour) & Pumice Stone
Trousers - Weathered Wood
Shoes - Frayed Burlap (maybe)
Heart & Rose - Fired Brick & Hickory Smoke (I think)
Grass - 3 shades of green but cannot remember which ones sorry.
I also Pearl Dots around image & inside of rose & also pink shabby frantage.
I also covered the image in Rangers Micro Distress Glaze.

The seambinding was originally eggshell & I coloured it myself & shabbied it up lol.

I added the new gorgeous die range Tracy has got in, here is the one used here in the top right corner.
The die Tilda is on is one of my favourite Joy Crafts one & I have to say with the Joy Crafts die-cutting machine its cuts a it even more now lol.

The paper is the new range from Maja Design, ok not exactly new, iot was originally released as Limited Edition & thankfully Maja Design has re-released.....thank you soooooo much Maja Design wooo hooooo. It is of course the Sofiero collection which Tracy has in in 12x12 7 the 6x6 pad & of course they introduced the Emphera this can get the collection here, it really is so pretty so if you didnt get any last time be sure to get it this time!!
I've also used a sheet from another collection which is the one at the bottom, but they all go perfectly starwberries & ice-cream mmmmmm.

Lovely Hanglar Or Sweet Magnolia Challenge

Hello lovelies how are you all? Are you having a fabby weekend, I hope you are enjoying it whatever you are doing.

So its time for a brand new challenge over at Lovely Hanglar Or Sweet Magnolia & the theme this month is again.........
.......what can I say, we absolutely love seeing all your creations & leaving the imagination up to you.
Now dont forget you can enter as many times as you want.....yep bring us 10 of your creations, the more the merrier plus it also increases your chance at the fabulous prize on offer as well as the glorious Top 3.
This month we are sponsored by Wild Orchid Crafts......ooh think of all those flowers you could win ;-)
My card is one that has been made up a while & I completely forgot to even take photo's of it never mind blog it.....ooops ;-\
Papers are Lemoncraft 'Just Love Me' & as always I've machine stitched all around the edges.
Senetiment is a rubber stamp from LOTV.

I have used 'Tilda With Lace Pants' from the Animal Year collection 2014. She is coloured with copics but I cannot remember the colours as truth is she was in my coloured up box but only half coloured lol.....her skin, hair & dungarees were coloured but she still had uncoloured hair bow, top & shoes & she had no ground or background lol.
I also added white dots to her cheeks using a white gel pen & I gave her eyelashes....doesnt she look kinda bashful lol.
I cut the image with a MB Stitched Oval & then it to a Little Darlings Gilded Oval die.

Lace was a crmbo present off hubster from Noor Design UK. The heart in the corner is from the Recipe Collection & is 'Rose & Heart' die, I just cut the heart in half as its a folding little tag, as the edge where it folds is straight I then added a Bark Heart with it to disguise the straight edge lol.
Other dies include LLLC Leaves die, Cheery Lynn Doily die. I've also used 2 Magnolia dies, the Lovely Umbrella & the Bride Bow. The flowers are WOC, I've added 2 darker pink ones to match the colour of her top & bow. I also added a bit of bling to the centre of the bow as well.
