Noor! UK February Challenge

Yup yup challenge time again!!!  I love these themes at Noor! UK Design because they are always so easy and usually can be incorporated into what we are currently making cards for.  So for this month, it's one you could easily guess....

Have a Heart

SEE?!!  Easy peasy!!  I'm also matching my papers to the theme as well by using Maja Design's "Vintage Romance".  I used some gorgeous Morgana lace but it's normally flat so I put some thread through and pulled on it to make it ruffly.

I cut out a few dies from the Marianne Design "Doily Die star" - ooooooo this die cut soooo smoothly I just love!!  I've added some gorgeous flowers and if you haven't been to the site lately, there are some new ones in stock.  

I chose to make a shaker card and added some pretty silver hearts to my shaker frame.  Hindsight...I should have added some glitter.  DOH!  

I love these bigger flowers too.  The blue one is called "Blossom" and the white one is one of the new ones I mentioned - Chrysanthemum.  Nope, I didn't get my spelling right the first time.  Thank you spell check.  LOL!!

Well I hope you get a chance to enter the challenge.  Thank you for stopping by to check out my little "Love" card.  Have a great day!

Flowers For You

So this was the second card I had in December's issue of Papercraft Essentials.  STOKED!  So excited!!  😁  These papers are from Studio Light "Beautiful Flowers" and I colored this LDRS All Dressed Up "Flowers for You" image using my copics.

I made a couple of my own flowers using the "Flowers of Joy" die and "Beautiful Flowers" papers again, then popped a pearl in the center to finish them off.  I also misted the die cut flowers and crinkled them up a bit before layering them together.  

On the left side I cut some white card stock using the "Flower Edge Die" by Joy Crafts then glued a Scrapiniec chipboard border piece "Doily Lace Border" giving me a double border because I happen to love texture and layers.  No, really!!  LOL!!

Just a close up of this cute little image.  After I made these cards I kinda fell in love with the little cuties! 

Here I added another Scrapiniec piece "Doily Lace Round Frame" and added some Wild Orchid flowers, a big pink English rose, a white shabby chic bow and popped a wooden button on top.  Also added a couple of pink strawberries, which I know I've said before but I'll say it again - my FAV!!

I added the cute vintage arrow and tied a piece of pink wax cord to finish it off.  I also have to mention the lace - (singing in a high pitched voice) ... gooorgeous!!!  😁

Thank you for coming back to check things out!!

Garden Gnome

Thought I would play with some card art this week so I've used a Dutch Doobadoo template, 306-Card Art A4 Swing Card 4, paired with Pion's "Where The Roses Grow" papers.  They are so pretty!!  The image is Whimsy's "Garden Gnome" and I colored her with my poorly neglected Copics.  😁  She is so versatile, you could color her for anything!

Isn't this little Scrapiniec bench cute?  Just seem to be perfect for that little spot on the card.

Here's a better view of that stunning Joy oval flower frame.  I have it coming on a few more projects too.  Pretty isn't it?  I'm always a sucker for a nice Joy die.  😀  I'm not too sure if you can see it very well, but I added some tiny pearls around the image using a pearl pen from Dutch Doobadoo.  It might look like maybe next time I should make bigger pearls.  LOL!

Ooooo I have quite a bit going on here!  I started with another rectangle frame Joy die, added a layer of Pion dp, then that gorgeous Scrapniec frame with clock and the "HAPPY" sentiment from the Pion borders paper.  At the end, I added some Wild Orchid roses to finish it off.

I am quite enjoying making these Foamiran flowers!  I used the Rosy Owl Flower Dies 2, then popped in a pearl center and added some Glossy Accents to the middle and sprinkled some glass glitter.

Ok well there you have it for me this week!  Hee hee  😁
I am having a friend over on Friday to craft all day so am looking forward to that.  I hope you have some crafty plans too!  Thanks for stopping by!
