Wee Sweetie

Hello Everyone,

I'm late sharing my card with you, too busy chatting behind the scenes with the DT who are all in love with the Crafts and You papers and converted from Maja Design, wow. They are gorgeous and such good quality and affordable too, so if you haven't tried them hop on over to the Noor Design UK Store and check them out.

You may have seen a few postings of this card in blogland this week.  This is the card from the Noor Design UK workshop last week.  We spent the morning and a little of the afternoon practicing our colouring using the image "SWEETIE" by Whimsy Stamps.  Stamped onto Fabriano Artistico 140lb Extra White Smooth watercolour paper, now available at Noor Design UK, yayyyy. I can't recommend this enough.  Coloured with distress inks.  She is a sweetie :)

Our next workshop is Sunday 15th May, this workshop by popular reqeust will be making 3D Beach Huts. If you are interested in this workshop or any future workshops please email me

The papers re from Lemoncraft Dreamy Mornings collection called

I added clusters of pearls around the image using the Dutch  Doobadoo pearl pen in white.

A close up of the flowers.  The large rose is an inkable flower by Color Lab.  I used the Lindy's Stampgang set of spray inks to colour the flower and also the seam binding.  I also used baby pink glass strawberies, 20mm white with baby pink roses, meadow spray in white and joycraft pink and cream flowers for the arrangement.  A little gesso and a couple of diecut leaves.  All the flowers will be available at Noor Design UK shortly :)

I used the floral edge die for each side of the card and the image was inseted into the diecut heart.

The butterfly is also from the Heart die set and I added a pen nib to the centre, again links at the bottom of the post.

To finish the bouquet I added a button from the House of Roses collection.

Hugs Tracy x
