A Gift For You

Here we are again, Monday and I didn't even touch the surface on my "To Do" list or my housework for that matter and as we approach Christmas I can't see this improving.  Have any of you started your Christmas Shopping yet? I was going to be so organised this year and have it done early but I haven't started.

As it's Monday it's time for my LLC DT card and this week Sandy is tasking us with the new "Maya Design" "A Gift For You" papers.  Gosh, it's a hard job but I guess someone has to do it, right?????  I have forced myself, lol, but seriously I am in love with this collection, just gorgeous, gorgeous papers.

I have used the Stempleglede image from the  Vintage Christmas set, they are all sooo beautiful and perfect for vintage cards.

The papers I have used are From Someone Special, Wrapped in Old Newspaper, Hope to see you Soon and the Die Cut Sheet from this collection.

I have used one of the gorgeous Prima Resin Frames, isn't this one awesome, love the design.  The text is cut also from the papers.  The little floral display is made from red berries, flower spray and a white carnation.  I also added a little gesso.

The snowflakes are from the Noor Design Iceicle border die.

On the right hand side I have added paper to the centre of the Noor Design Square Frame and Chandelier die and decorated with a little prima corner.  Just below this you can see the rusty heart with a dusting of snow tex and a collection of red berries and flowerspray and finished with a star pin.

You can see a close up here of the beautiful Reinette lace and jumbo pom poms.

I cut a Noor Design Tag from the paper and finished with seam binding, hemp cord and a rusty snowflake charm.

Here's a pic of the inside.  I have layered the text cut from the 12 x 12 Die Cut sheet onto the Noor Design Frame and Chandelier Die.  This has also been used for the panel at the bottom where I have also cut out the post card from the paper and tucked it behind.

Sparkle at The Ribbon Girl

Morning Everyone,

I can't believe it's Sunday already, and still my list is longer than it started on Friday, lol, and I still haven't finished the housework.  I think I could do with a cleaner, lol.

My card for you today is a GDT card for The Ribbon Girl Magnolia Only with a theme of "Sparkle"  Whilst speaking of The Ribbon Girl, you still have until tomorrow to enter the joint candy from The Ribbon Girl and the Noor Design UK stores HERE.

You will notice I have used a Magnolia image, love this one, coloured with distress inks and if your looking to learn then look no further than the  Kit and Clowder online learning site HERE.

The gorgeous papers called Winter Wonderland are by Noor Design!!!  I'm in love with them, and guess what.... they are available in store.

I have added lots of sparkle, just difficult to photograph.  The little tree charm from The Ribbon  Girl is sparkly and the snowflake  Iceicle Border edges have been covered with diamond dust, so they are very very sparkly too.

I have added a Noor Design Bird Cage/Bird and added a little snow text to give it a frosty feel.

The pretty tag is also a Noor Design Die.  Finished off with oval pearl string, twine and seam binding all from The Ribbon Girl.

The text word WINTER is this month's latest release, available in store.  The gorgeous lace peeking through is from The Ribbon Girl.

So what do we have at the top here, 30mm and 20mm Blue roses from The Ribbon Girl and the new  Noor Design Rolled Roses, except on one of them I have rolled loosely to create pine cones and given a dusting of snow tex available from Live and Love Crafts.

At the very top I have used the  Noor Design Snowflake Border Die and I was greedy and used two, hehehhe.

The leaves are also a Vintage Flourish Die.

Here's a peek inside.  You can clearly see the gorgeous lace and again those beautiful papers, my favourite colours, so yes I would say that.  I have also used the new skates die and added Star Dust Stickles to the skates to make them sparkle.

I have used the same Noor Design Circle frame on the inside as I did on the front.  Love this frame.

Can you believe I used 10 dies on here.... ummm now that could be a challenge in the future.

Have a good day.
