New Challenge - SUMMER

I'm back with another Noor! Design UK challenge for you. 
I started with this super cute Dutch Doobadoo Dutch Card Art Bucket A4 template and covered it with some of Maja's "Summertime" papers.  Pretty clever huh?  A summer challenge and I used summer papers?  ha ha ha!! 

I cut a few stars using Fantasy's "Stars" die but I think that stitched look is pretty cool!  Added some WOC flowers, some Dutch Doobadoo Dutch Paper Art A5 Bubbles and a glass strawberry. 

 Some more WOC flowers and bubbles. 

The image is from Maja's "Summertime Die" cuts and I framed it in one of Joy's Framework dies.  I just love how those kids look as it reminded me of when me and my sister were playing on the beach as kids and enjoying summer holidays.  Oh how I miss them!! 

 Well enjoy the rest of you week and if you get a chance to join our challenge that would be awesome!

More of The Songbird's Secret

Good day!!  Today I wanted to share a pretty vintage card I made using one of Pion's recent collections called "The Songbird's Secret".  Aren't the laces pretty?  Lace Amelia - Ooooooo even a pretty name!!

Here I've used some ivory colored Foamiran and colored the edges, heated with an iron and shaped some die cut pieces with the Rosy Owl "Flower Dies 2" set.  I just love these big leaves too and you can make them a little smaller just by leaving them on the iron a little bit longer but don't leave it too long because I found they toughen up and then you can't shape them.  That's fine too if you like the shape that's created by the iron alone.  

This nice little birdcage is on sale right now!!  Go scoop yours up before they're all gone.  I just like the size of them and sometimes when I feel like I have a bit of a space left, it's perfect!!  

On the "Memory Notes" 12 x 12 paper there are some tags but also this cute little "Moments" sentiment and a few more.  Here I've cut the Foamiran with the Rosy Owl "Trailing Leaves" die but then while it was heated, I pressed in one of the moulds (see below) to get an imprint for the leaf.  It's subtle but I think that's all a person needs.

Thank you so much for stopping by!!
Have a great weekend and I'll be back next week!
 I hope you are too!  :)

Have The Micest Day

Good day!!  Today I thought I would share this cute image from the latest LDRS release called "Have The Micest Day" along with LemonCraft's "Everyday Spring" papers for a more FUN/CUTE card.  At the top is a Marianne die and on the far right is a Fantasy die.  Both of these dies cut just beautifully!

One of the LemonCraft papers has some tags and die cut pieces on it, so I used the butterfly, popped on a Wild Orchid flower and added a Wycinanka arrow.  I painted it white using Gesso to match all the other white on the card.  I'm kind of particular (peculiar) that way.  Hee hee

Isn't this snail charm adorable?!!  There were recently some more awesome charms put onto the store so lots for everyone!  I've used some bark hearts but again painted them white using the Gesso.

OH I have lots going on here!!  Ok the border on the left is a new Joy border "Edge Die with Impellers" and lots of more flowers.  BY THE WAY - did you see all the new flowers put into stock this week?!!  YUM YUM!!  At the bottom I filled a little tiny wish bottle with some silver microbeads.  The bottles are so tiny you really don't use much of anything when you fill them.  They are so cute!

Ok there we have it for this Thursday!!!  Seems our weather here is being very slow to get into spring so I think we may have a situation where we skip it and head from winter right into summer.  Just crazy times in our area.  I hope it's a lovely weekend for you all but I suppose even if it's raining it's a great day to excuse yourself to your craft room.  LOL!!
