New Christmas In July Release

Hi everyone I'm back today with my 2nd card for the Christmas In July Release from La La Land Crafts.
List & links to the new Rubber Stamp & Dies used will be at the bottom.
Today I have a girly card with another one of the new rubber stamps & she's my favourite ;-)
This is Winter Coat Mollie.......I lurve Mollie I think she is so pretty.......she's the type of gal that would suit anything isn't she....you know the ones that would look good even in a tetty (potato) sack ;-)
She reminds me of my daughter..........there isn't a colour that she doesnt look pretty in.

I have used the new Snowflakes Set 1 die which you get 2 dies in, I've cut them each twice & layered them up & added a scalloped pearl to the centre.
I've also added in the Lamp Post as I love that & the North Pole sign although in hindsight I should have cut it out in different paper or card as it kinda blends in too much lol....oops. Mental note taken ;-)

I have used the 3Trees die....lurve this die so much & I've cut this out 4 times laid down 2, then popped the other 2 on foam pads to give them dimension. Mollie also got the foam pad treatment to give her dimension too.

The papers I've used are Authentique 'peaceful' 6x6 pad. I've added Pom Pom trim along the bottom which I think was from Live & Love Crafts, as were the bells which got the gesso treatment. The white silky crush ribbon is from my stash.

Pop on over to the La La Land Crafts Blog to see the other truly stunning makes, those girls over there are so darn talented.

Hello everyone how are you all?
We are so excited today to show you the brand new Christmas In July release. There are 5 super gorgeous rubber stamp & a fantastic array of 10 Dies......I love them all!!!
So do you want to see the collection?........of course you do ;-)
These are the new stamps....

Today I've used Winter Luka & made a christmas card for a male........I love making Christmas cards, it's my favourite time of year.
I soooo lurve these new dies, the list of dies used with links & colours used will be at the bottom of the post.
The sentiment here was on the inside of the cover of the paper pad I used which is Authentique 'christmas Time' 6x6 pad.... I added 2 gems to it for some extra bling ;-)
You might be able to see the glitter on Luka's hat & on his lantern.

I made a card for someone who you would prefer to give either money or vouchers too....we all have that person in our family. On one side I made a tag using paper from the pad, card & I used a bit of border die along the top....the paper I folded back up on itself at the bottom.......plenty of space to write on.
The sentiment came with this rubber stamp.
I used one of the large border dies along the bottom.....the small border die I used on the inside.

I used the Ornate Scroll Flourish die either side of the middle layer. The Icicle border die I cut twice & layered it up. The trees I also cut twice & the 2nd one I popped onto foam pads to give it some dimension.... Have you seen that North Pole die.....OMG that is my favourite........& the trees.......ok ok I love them ALL!!!!

Noor Design UK DT Card

Hello everyone. 
I'm here today with a new stamp & some gorgeous new paper......from Noor Design UK.
I have used a new stamp from the Magnolia collection...all links at the bottom of this post.
I have used the super delicious Maja Design Summertime papers......omword I did not want to cut into these & I think its took me a week to recover from it lol, they really are gorgeous & possiby the best collection yet......possibly lol.
I have made an easel card, using the gorgeous reds in the paper.
The stamp is Tilda Working In The Garden from the new Seaside Collection. I have coloured her with distress markers & refills.
The 2 strawberries at the bottom right corner of the image I fussy cut from the Maja Design set.

The strips going across the card top & bottom are the strips at the bottom of each 12x12 sheet.....nothing goes to waste in Maja Design.
The bottom oval I made using the Little Darlings die. I added a starwberry & a little butterfly from Magnolia Doohickey club set 10 which is still available I think.

I cut a tag from the same set & cut the stamp & attatched that. The charm is a new charm Tracy has added to her store along with some fabulous others.
If you can see the white die sticking out behind thats a new die recently added to the store, its the Pierced Swirl Border die & I cut it twice & lay both behind the image.

Added 2 lots of gorgeous lace....well because I couldnt make my mind up which one to use, so I used both ;-) The honeycomb die cut is also from Magnolia club kit 10.
Of course I added gorgeous flowers, glass starwberries & one of my favourite dies, the Marianne Tassels....love these!!!

So Happy Summer from me & hope you have a lovely day, why not make even better by popping over to Noor Design UK & look at all the fantastic goodies Tracy has to offer.......oooh spoilt for choice.

Thanks for stopping by, big hugs

Isn't this sweet little boy just the most darling baby......
Paper are of course my favourite baby papers..........yep Maja Design Vintage Baby & I've used all 12x12 sheets on this set.

Inisde I used the same paper & added 2 die cuts in there as well. Of course all papers have been machine stitched all around.

The Rocking Horse I cut out twice to layer it up. On the small tag I placed 2 balloons which I fussy cut out of some matching paper, the smaller balloon I popped on foam pads to raise it up.

This is the top of the matching gift box & again I've used all matching papers. The rattle I cut out twice & the 2nd one I cut using the paper but just added a little bit of it....just a splash of blue ;-)

The gift box could be used for anything small....little socks or even one of those identity bracelets.....most people love them. The bracelet here is just for photo purposes of course ;-)
