Magnolia & Dreamerland Crafts

Hello everyone how are you all?
Hope all you mums in the UK had a lovely Mother's Day, I hada lovely one.

I'm here today with 2 cards for Noor Design UK, the first one uses Dutch Doobadoo Card Art & a Magnolia stamp & the 2nd card is using one of the yummy Dreamerland Crafts stamps.

First here is a card made using the Dutch Doobadoo A4 Kitchen Aid card art using Maja Design papers.

I used 2 different sheets of Maja Design papers from the Summertime collection, I added a different pattern to the bowl.....a shabby chic Kitchen Aid in my favourite colours for a kitchen.
Of course the Recipe Collection from Magnolia was perfect for this & not forgetting the Joy Crafts Strawberry die.

I added lots of pearls on this & of course it had to still have the flower treatment.
I also added a wooden rolling pin & a Kitchen Aid charm.
The fabulous stamp is called 'Made With Love Tilda' & again she was stmaped onto Fabriano & coloured with distress ink refills.

Here is the cardmade using one of the new Dreamerland Crafts stamps, these stamps are due any day now over at Noor Design UK. This beauty is called 'Enjoying The Breeze' & I stamped her onto Fabriano & coloured her with distress ink refills.The apples in her basket I coloured red & green, I also added pearl dots around her using a pearl pen.
These are fabulous to colour up I enjoyed colouring these soooooo much. There is not one stamp I dont like......they all have such an innocence about them & are so adorable!!

I've used Scrapiniec Leaves & some WOC flowers, the centre flower I made with Foamiran. I also added a bow made with Organza & heat shriveled to add to the shabby look.

This card is made for someone who wants 2 cards the same as my last Dreamerland Crafts card here but as I make no 2 cards the same as I like each & every card to be one of a kind.
So I used a different shape, a different stamp, paper etc. The things I kept the same was the tag with the LOTV Birthday Recipe on & I still added a bow with bling, only this time the bow was also made with oragnza ribbon & the other with seam binding I dyed myself.
I also used my favourite lace on this one & a piece of scrapiniec with a clay heart.

If you want to order any of these gorgeous Dreamerland Crafts stamps pop on over to here as any day now they will be arriving at Noor Desgin UK.........could even be today, I've got 8 of these babies coming & I'm soooooooo excited but would like them all, greedy I know lol. They really are a dream to colour........looks like they have the right name.


Well thats it from me, thank you so much for stopping by.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

Have A Great Birthday

Helllooooo there everyone how are you all? Well someone must have heard me complainging about the weather yesterday as today is such a beautiful day here by the sea.

Well I can finally show you a card with a new stamp brand, new for me. Now if I'm ever inspired by anyone to try a certainstamp or style I will give credit to that person.
This time I'm not sure wether to give credit or blame that person for helping me spend lots of money as I have another 8 of these stamps on their way & I know I will want more lol.....not that I need help spending my money lol.
I had seen these stamps & thought they were sooo pretty, they had such an innocence about them & then I saw the lovely talented Gina use some on her cards.......yep that was the stamp in the basket lol.

This is a card I made early last week & is a commisioned card that was requested with this stamp.
Look at that image isn't it fabulous, I think I'm gonna want them all!!
The card shape was made with a Go-Kreate die & the papers are all Maja Design Vintage Romance, sheets used are 'Romance Engagement' both sides & 'Romance Wedding Day'.
All layers were machine sewn around the edge.

I've added Doilies from my stash underneath.
A Bark Heart with added gesso & a little blossom, all form Noor Design UK.

So the stamp is by Dreamerland Crafts & this one is called 'Stretching Out' & I stamped the image onto Fabriano watercolour paper & coloured it with distress ink refills. 
I added pearl dots around the image using a pearl pen & added stickles to the bunny's ears & the lacey bits on her dress.
I also added some cut out grass using a magnolia die from Volume 8 club kit......I really need to start digging out more unused dies.

As always (unless for a show) I decorate dinside to compliment the front.
The double bow is made from seam binding I dyed myself a while ago & added some bling to the centre.
The sentiment is an old wooden one in my stash. The heart its stamped on is a Magnolia die, I think its a Tea Label Shapes die & then I added another heart from a Little Darlings die.

Added WOC flowers & the leaves & swirl underneath are Magnolia dies. In the pocket I added a tag with a sentiment form an old rubber stamp from LOTV which is the Birthday Recipe.

You can of course pre-order LOTS of these stamps from Noor Design UK they are on their way to the store s I type lol. There are new & older ones that Tracey has ordered as well. Pop along see these beauties for yourself........if I were you I would be quick before I go order lots more lol.

Well another busy day for me so I'm gonna move my butt now & will catch up with you later.

Thanks for stopping by, big hugs to all

Hello there everyone how are you all? Last week or 2 weather had got pretty mild for winter but these last couple of days I'm absolutely freezing :-(

Ok just kidding I'm gonna show you a card really lol. Now yesterday I was going to show you a new stamp brand, new for me. Erm well you will have to wait til tomorrow as although its in my drafts I completely forgot its the last day for Maja Design Mood Board & I sooooo want to enter you know I lurve their papers..........I think I tell you everytime I use them lol.
So this is there Mood Board this month....
MajaDesign Mood Board March 2017
..........isn't it pretty. I love the colours yet rarely use these colours together. My nan always said 'Blue & green should never be seen unless something is in between'........so I did ;-)
I have used papers from 2 collections, both blue papers are from Vintage Romance, top layer is 'Wedding Day' & bottom layer is 'Forget Me Knot'. The middle layer is from their latest relese Sofiero.....oh Sofiero is sooooo darn pretty I'm already going to buy another set....no I'm not running low but the sheer panic if I did would be unbearable ;-)
Ok so the green sheet is 'The Elegant Wine House' I also used this sheet for the leaves.

Ok now as my nan said to put something in between....so I did. So in between the bottom blue & the green I added doilies to either side & in between the green & the top layer of blue I added CheeseCloth........I always listened to my Nan <3 nbsp="" p="">
Made 2 bows, 1 with cheesecloth & one with shabby seam binding & then added this gorgeous pearl bling to the centre. I've had this for ages & I think it was originally from LLC, isn't it gorgeous!!

I added lots of gorgeous WOC flowers from Noor Design UK. The leaves were made with Rosy Owl Elegant Leaves die. The bird is form my stash.

As always I decorated inside. The card shape was made with a Go-Kreate die & I inked all the paper edges with pumice stone before very lighlty distressing them & machine sewing all layers.
The top 2 layers were cut with Fantasy Stitched Rectangles die.
The chipboard is Wycinanka. 

Well thats from me I have such a busy day today.
Thank you sooooo much for stopping by & listening to me babble on lol. You all totally rock!!

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
