Hello everyone, how are you all?
I'm here today with my DT card for Noor Design Uk, I was hoping to show you 2 male cards but due to family being poorly, first my granddaughter Payton came down with a viral infection last Fridy & then its got passed around, now my grandson has it, Natalie has it & hubster has it....only he's had sickness with it too. Even my poor dog was sick as well yesterday...think they are worried I will get bored lol.
Luckily I made this card about 2 weeks ago ready for the stamp & that got put on last week so I will show you that one instead....thank goodness for back ups lol.
I have used another of the fabulous Dreamerland Crafts stamps.........omg I'm addicted to these & they are so enjoyable to colour. I have stamped this gorgeous stamp called 'A Friendship Hug' onto Fabriano& coloured her with distress ink refills & added glitter to the flower in her hair.
I have coloured up a few of these....between these & my Maggies I feel like a happy 6 year old girl colouring away lol.
I have made an easel card, it seems soooo long since I've made one, I think its been a couple of months.
I used 1 sheet of Pion Design 'Theodore & Bella' called 'Waiting To Play' 6x6. The top left corner I saw the border & decided to cut that off & use that as the main part of the bottom layer & mounted it onto foam pads to make it 3D & help the top card stand up.
See photo below.........
I added pearl string. lace & a die-cut & 2 seam binding bows with a bit of bling & that was the bottom..... However I did not want to then cover up that pretty paper to then have to add somewhere to write a message..........
So I did this.......
As there was 1 square of 6x6 left I used that to decorate the inside & make a pocket to put tags in.
I added pearl string to compliment all the card.
I added tag with a LOTV Friend Recipe stamped onto it & another Joy Crafts tag which I left plain to write a message on.........& no pretty paper gets hidden ;-)
All of the flowers I have made myself using foamiran. I've used Ivory foamiran for the large flower & for the medium flower I have used white & the very small ones I've used Ivory again. I used Lime Green for the leaves & for the centres....the centres I also added red oil pastel on the ends to give it more colour & definition. I also added Viva Decor Ice Effect to give it a sparkly effect in the centre.
They look soooooo much better in real life & sparkle better :-(
Can you see the difference of the colours of the flowers......they have both have the same colour oil pastels added & because the large one is Ivory the colour is different..........guess who is going to by lots more Ivory Foamiran now lol. I love the softer feel to it.
I mahcine stitched all around the papers.
Added another gorgeous row of pearls along the top of the 2nd layer on the main part of the card,those pearls are my favourite. I did kind of go pearl mad with this card but they go so well with this pretty paper. Even the tones in the bling & the key go beautifully with the tones of the papers.
Pop yourself over to Noor Design UK & look at the fabulous new Dreamerland Crafts stamps that Tracy has & the foamiran & all the pretty papers &....welll I could go on & on & on......lol.
Pop yourself over & have a fab time shopping.....easter bunny will want you to to treat yourself for easter ;-)
Thanks for stopping by.
Huge hugs Vicky xxx
