La La Land Crafts DT Card

Helloooooo everyone well its friday yayyyyyyy time for the weekend. Though dont think we will be doing much this weekend as my youngest son & my daughter are not well........think sunday may be a jammie (pyjama) day lol.

Ok so here I am with my DT card for La La Land Crafts & this week the challenge is Anything Goes with Glitter.......this challenge made me sooooo happy lol.
When I got my doohickey club kit volume 11 the lovely Camilla made a tutorial to make a Lollipop card.........so here is my first Lollipop Card & I soooooooo enjoyed it.
Thank you Camilla <3 p="">
I used Maja Design papers from the Nyhavn collection.  The heart by the larger flowers I made myself using light clay....

I used the LLLC Stitched Circles & used one here to place the sentiment from which is also from LLLC. Behind there I cut out 2 LLLC Heart Doily Border dies & behind those is a paper doily.

Added 2 flowers & used some leaves & a bit of bling for extra sparkle. I laced the flowers & leaves with stardust stickles. The sentiment corners also got the stickles treatment.
You should be able to see the sparkly bits on this piccy :-)

I wanted some larger handmade flowers on this but dont have any LLLC Flowers dies so I used my imagination & made 2 different type of flowers using the Stitched Circle dies & then added Heart shaped pearls to the inside.....I'm really pleased with how they turned out & add to the shabby chic feel. So you dont need flower dies to make flowers ;-)
The seam binding & Button are from Noor Design UK.

On the back I decided to change the design. Usually the back you would write the message but I thought the front might get a bit squished when you write your message. So I made a pocket ;-)

So the pocket is made up with Stitched Circle dies, 1 for the bottom & half for the bottom pocket. The stamping is with a Stempelglede stamp & the little sentiment under the tags is from Little Darlings older sentiment stamp. I also stamped a bit of the stamp onto the tags & added pink waxed cord. So it has somewhere to write a message without squashing the front ;-)

Well thats it from me hope you like my Lollipop card, I certainly enjoyed making it & will definitely be making more ;-)

Thanks for stopping by, take care & enjoy your day & weekend.

Its time for a brand new challenge over at Deep Ocean Challenge & this fortnight its soooooo easy so no excuse not to join in.......
ANYTHING GOES
..........told ya it was easy ;-)
This is your prize from Marianne Design

Ok I've had quite a bit going on this last week or 2 & totally forgot about my DT make.......however I do have a couple of cards that I have never blogged. This one was a commission I made back in May for a Ruby Anniversary in June.
Ok I will try my best remember what I used. I know the papers are all Maja Design, the red ones are from the Gift For You christmas collection, this is one of my favourite collections & my utter favourite christmas collection.......lots of it can be used all year round....love that kinda paper ;-)

The Scrapiniec is from Noor Design UK as are some of the flowers, all the flowers are WOC.

The centre is made up of 2 hearts together.......its love at its best, the big heart (aka the man) embracing the smaller heart (aka the woman). For the hearts I used my spellbinder dies.
I added a sentiment across the centre from LOTV, I used a Banner Die & then cut out & layered up some small hearts.

Inisde of course is decorated. The lace was from Live & Love Crafts, the leaf dies are from Noor Design UK & the flowery round die is a Memory Box die.

Please pop on over to look at my teamies creations also the GD creations....believe me they will knock your socks off.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Noor Design UK - Best Friend

Hello everyone I'm here today with my DT card for the Noor Design UK Blog & I have used some of the fabulous new products by LDRS Creative available at Noor Design UK.....I have 3 words for these.....LOVE LOVE LOVE...ok 1 word 3 times lol.
All links to products used will be at the bottom of the post......
I lurve this stamp & these dies & they will be seen again........especially the dies. Oh & they cut fabulously they really do.......I could go on & on but I wont lol.
I've gone quite easy on this card....not my usual over the top, full of foofiness kinda card but I really wanted the image, dies & papers to shine out.

This is the inside & I made a pocket to put some tags in, one tag is cut from a die linked below. The papers I've used are the super pretty, super gorgeous Maja Design Summertime which I honestly cant get enough of......the other tag is also cut from that collection.
I have sewn around all the papers & the lace is even sewn into place ;-)

I have added little cutouts which came the Little Darlings Fancy Squares die......one of them is this little heart, the buttons on the inside are also from this die set.....

The doilies are from this Septembers Crafteezee Collection...........yes I brought the collection well what I can say but OH MY OH MY OH MY.....sooo much pretty stuff.
I've also used an older Little Darlings die across the centre, I cut 2 bits from the Background Builders 1 die set & doubled them up to make it wider then added a strip of Maja Design paper, again stitched all around..........think it adds a nice touch.

The little die above the sentiment also came with the Fancy Squares set & the die-cut the sentiment is on is from Magnolia Doo-Hickey club set Volume 10. The sentiment is Little Darlings Best Friends stamp set. The paper underneather the sentiment is the same as what the image is matted onto & is Maja Design.

The fabulous image is of course Saturated Canary  Crafty Cat rubber stamp.....love this & I coloured it with distress markers & refills, I also added Glossy Accents to her glasses...which you might be able just about to see. I added Joy Crafts Flourish Clip dies which are the small heart above the image & the larger heart inside on the pocket.
I've also added pearl dots here & there with the Pearl Pen.

SUMMERTIME

Hello everyone how are you all?
Well I'm here with my DT post for the Noor Design Uk blog & this week I've not made a card but instead spent quite a bit of time of something for myself. This is going on the wall of my craft room.......once its finished that is lol.
I brought these a bit ago from Tracy, they are not in stock at the minute but message her & she will be only too happy to help. I do have another on the go which is for my daughter but for now lets show you mine ;-) I painted this all with white gesso first then added crackle paste here & there once the paint was dry.........then started to decorate.
Please excuse the photo's, will try upload some more later when I've taken better ones!!
I have altered a Dutch Doobadoo shadow box.....the theme of this came from Maja Design's August Mood Board below........ Summertime to me means family holidays & all the family going away in our caravans.....maybe I should have put 2 on there? Of course to decorate this shadow box I used the Summertime Collection by Maja Design, my absolute favourite, ok I lurve them ALL, but Summertime is my absolute fave....every page just makes me happy.
MB-August16


Ok so for the whole of the background I used a sheet of  'Is Always The Best 12x12' & I also used a 2nd sheet & I fussy cut the flowers from the top corner & glued them to the corner of the shadow box....if you look you can see the exact same flowers underneath on the base. I also fussy cut out the wording 'Summertime'.In the next square I added a resin frame & placed a photo of my grand-daughter in there....these photo's on here were all taken at times when we have been away on holiday during the summer.

I fussy cut another corner of flowers, this one came from the bottom left corner but I turned it & added it here. I also fussy cut the sweet little girl with her skipping rop & The heart has a photo of my goldendoodle puppy named Poppy, shes about 14 weeks old here. I fussy cut the Gazebo & added a tag behind from the 'In The Garden Die-Cuts' 12x12 sheet.
Added some Strawberries in there......summer just isn't summer without strawberries & I sit & share them with my grand-daughter as they are her favourite fruit :-)
There is also a Teapot at the top of the tag.........just like there is one on the mood board. I usually make everyone a cuppa as soon as we get there while we are setting up awnings.

I made a Heart out of resin a long time ago & used a stamp with a postmark on it while the clay was wet........I'm not sure what stamp I used, sorry.
The heart frame below that has a photo of my grandson in it. At the bottom I die-cut some leaves from sheet 'Greenery' 12x12 & fussy cut another sweet girl with a skipping rope. Underneath there is also the same little girl......I cut the top one form the 2nd sheet.

I fussy cut the bike..I love this bike with its flowers in the basket. I added a bike here with another frame with my daughter in.....now the bike represents wheels & as my daughter is in a wheelchair I had to add wheels in here somewhere.....a bike was the closest thing.
I've also added a die-cut of a bike & behind added a postage stamp form the Die-Cuts sheet.
I also added a resin rose to the bottom which I added fran-tage to.

The last photo is of the centre & here i made a little scene which consists of a lamp-post, some mushrooms = cooked breakfast every morning lol. The mushrooms are from Magnolia Doo-Hickey club set Volume 9. The aweosme caravan there.....I lurve this die, this is from Doo-Hickey Club set Volume 11. The wheel I used a scrap piece of Maja Design for the dark shade.
I added trees which were also from Volume 9 & I fussy cut a sweet boy out from the Die-Cuts sheet......yeah I know hes bigger than the trees & caravan.......he's just really tall ;-)
At the top I added more leaves & hand made flowers..... the ones on the right I used a Joy Crafts die & used just the 2 smaller dies & then added small Gypsophila flowers to the centre. The tiny flowers on the left are from a Doo-Hickey club set. The butterfly I made with clay a long time ago & I then added fran-tage.
All of the paper elements, die-cuts & fussy cutting I covered with a decoupage sealant to protect it all when its hanging on my wall..........after all I want it to last a long long time ;-)

Thats it from me, thanks for stopping by. Dont forget you can get these gorgeous products & more from Noor Design UK.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
