Wedding or Anniversary

Hello everyone I have quite a few cards/creations that I've made that I've not shown on here. 

A while ago I was aked to make a Ruby Anniversary card & while I was on making it I got carried away & made 3 lol....wanted to give a choice lol.
This one I didnt do in ruby colours but its a card that could be used for Wedding or Anniversary or even a birthday card.....

The cardstock I've used has a suede effect on it......its so soft to just want to stroke it all the time lol.
For the shape I've used Marianne Designs Border Wave Set......lurve this die so much!! I've used both the dies in the set on this card.

The inside I've decorated as always, I've took a photo before adding a place to write a message so you can see the pretty paper.
The paper is the gorgeous Craft & You Wedding their papers sooooo much.

Added beautiful WOC flowers, Pomegranate Apples & added a fine string of pearls in between it all. Underneath I've used 2 dies, Swirl Leaf Die & a Marianne Leaf die but cant remember the name of it, sorry :-(

The top layer of paper I raised up to give it dimension. The bottom part I left blank for putting a sentiment on.

The detail in the centre I used an embossing folder called Tied Together (I think lol). In the middle of the crosses I added pearl dots with a Pearl Pen.
I've added strings of flat backed pearls along the side & along the wave on the top half.
The lace was from LLC as are the flower shaped pearls & the bark heart.
Everything else except the embossing folder is from Noor Design UK. Tracy is adding lots of fabulous items all the time....your one stop craft shop ;-)

Thats it form me lovelies, hope you have a super weekend & hope the weather is nice where ever you are.
Thanks for stopping by.
Big hugs Vicky xxx

EDITED TO ADD... I've replaced the first photo with one taken from my phone & shows a better version of it for some reason.......the camera seems to dullen it, not sure why unless the settings have been changed ;-/

Noor Design UK DT Projects

Hello everyone, how are you all? Hope you have all had a super duper weekend.
I have 2 projects for you again this week. 
This first one I made a couple of weeks ago & then the next I made end of last week.
All links to products used at the bottom of this post.

I made the initial start a few weeks ago on this but then finished off at a later date.......especially when I got this beautiful die in my DT pack last week......isn't it sooooooo pretty!!
Its the new Joy Crafts 'Big Fence & Background' die. At the bottom of the fence you can just make out the border die I've used & also the Ruffled Trim in White.
The stamp of course is Magnolia 'Daffodil Tilda' from the Spring Fever collection & she is coloured with distress markers & refills.

Its a small card & then inside I made a box using the Dutch Doobadoo Box Art Merci & attached it to the inside of the card.
Again I added the beautiful Fence die. At the bottom I've added Little Darlings die cut with a gem.
I've added no sentiments at this point as I can add them when I know who the recipient will be & for what occasion etc.

Inside the box is perfect for putting chocalate in or for putting money in like I have done....
I have used seam binding to tie it shut. The beautiful papers I've used are Studioe Light No.17 6x6 pad.
My second project is a card with no colouring, just dies, flowers & beautiful papers.......not forgetting the beautiful lace that Tracy stocks.

Here is a photo of the lace inside before the inside was finished, isn't it so darn pretty.
The gorgeous paper I've used is the new Pion Design Mr Tom's you can see this collection is not just for the ladies.....this is one of my favourite sheets & will be ordering more ;-)

I've used the awesome Window with Shutters die & cut out a Tag from the Mr Tom's Tag sheet & placed it behind the window. I cut out the 2 butterflies form the Borders the borders sheet!! I've used a punch I have for the tiny butterflies........handy for those scraps we have left over.
The bird on a branch is a Marianne die form my stash & I've added a couple of Sweetheart Blossoms to the branch.
The shutters I've stamped a light pattern on using a Stempelglede stamp, then added lots of flowers, used 2 dies for the leaves & added a La La Land Crafts Doily die at the can just see it peeking out.
Tracy will be soon stocking La La Land Craft dies so watch this space ;-)

Well thats it from me I have a crafty day scheduled ahead of me as I have commisions to finish.
Hope you have a good day, take care.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
