A Teacup Full of Wishes

Hi again,

I have had fun again playing with more LDRS Creative Dies and the oh so cute LDRS Creative Teacup Full of Wishes by Polkadoodles coloured with distress inks.  I have used the Grace Build a Die Set, I love the elegant fluted edge of the circle and the dashed and dotted faux stitched effect of the inner circle and not to forget how awesome the stitched leaves are, I do love a leaf :)

I added two segments from the Dainty Doily Edge Die, another favourite.

The image was diecut using the Fancy Rectangles and Things die set.

To the floral bouquet I used Hybrid Tea Roses, 10mm open roses, sweetheart blossom, pixie blossom, meadow spray in white, rose buds and finished with an organza ribbon which I heated with my heat gun to give it that shabby vintage feel, love this effect.

The text was stamped from an LDRS Sentiment Set     which is currently on sale :)

Hope you like it :)

Christmas Cheer

Hi Everyone,

I have been playing today with the NEW LDRS Winter Land paper pad.  These are so high quality that I used the matching papers to make all my diecuts too :)  I used the NEW LDRS Snowy Day Border and used one of the beautiful papers capturing the darker tones to the top of the snowflakes and it looks cool in real life.


I added Wycinanka Lace Baubles mixed and finished with a Foamiran Poinsettia using the smallest petal die from  NEW Rosy Owl Poinsettia die set, finished with heart headed stamens and added a wax cord bow and the holly leaves cut from the NEW LDRS Holly

I diecut the Christmas word and Cheer word twice, once in white cardstock and once from the Winter Land paper pad and offset against each other.

You can see in the below picture the gorgeous Snowy Day Border.

Season's Greetings

Hello everyone,

It's been a while since I posted and most of you will know that Christmas Cards are my utmost favourite cards to make so I couldn't resist a play with Pion Design's Christmas Wishes collection.

I cut the image from the Christmas Morning 12x12 sheet using LDRS Fancy Rectangles die set and edged with Forest Moss distress ink.

I used a Scrapiniec Tatting Christmas 3D Heart and finished with a wax cord bow and two tone frosted pomegranates.

The Poinsettia was made using Foam Silk Suite in Red.  This foam doesn't need heating and is easy to manipulate with your fingers.

I cut tags from the Tag sheet, added a diecut from the Fantasy Branches 3 behind it and added some frosted pomegranates.  You will also see the NEW reindeer clip, isn't it cute.

All the items used are linked below my post.

Hugs Tracy

May the gratitude of Autumn fill your heart and home

Hello Everyone,

I am sharing a card made with the new Pion Design Summer Falls Into Autumn papers due into store this week, don't forget you can pre-order them here and they will be sent out as soon as they arrive. I'm loving the colours in this collection :)

I cut the image from the Plum Garden 12x12 sheet and added cheesecloth behind.

I used the new Raspberry Leaf Die and diecut twice, once on to Palette Green II and Palette Green III.

Flowers are made up of English Roses, 15mm open roses, pomegranates, poppies, tiny gypsophilia, glistening berries in gold and finished with the Raspberry Leaves and a wax cord.

The text was cut from the border sheet along with the butterfies.

Hope you like it.

Challenge time at Noor Design UK

Hello Everyone,

It's been a while since I posted I know but some of you know we lost a close family member and the recent months have been so very difficult for us and still are.

On a brighter note, it is challenge time at Noor Design UK and this month is a favourite with the DT, "LAYERS".

With everything that has happened I had forgotten that I had two cards featured in this months Making Cards Magazine which is out now in the shops, so don't forget to pick up your copy with free papers and lots of inspiration.

I have used Pion Design's My Dearest Sofia collection of papers, Lily of the Valley Scrapiniec and so much more.

Hope you like it
