All About Love

Hello everyone Vicky here today standing in as our lovely Fleur sadly stepped down as she is so busy........she will be a huge miss here :-(
So Ive stepped in to cover this week, although you also have to put up with me tomorrow as that's my normal posting day.
Ok so I've made 2 cards just using gorgeous Dies from Noor Design & fabulous Mask Arts from Dutch Doobadoo & lots of embossing ;-)
Lots of piccies today peeps, sorry ;-)
Both cards I've made using Ivory card & matted up with a bit of white.

The bottom layer I dry embossed using the 'Mask Art Flowers', I love these mask arts from Dutch Doobadoo they really are so versatile. I plan on collecting them all lol.

I also dry embossed the circle shape as well & layered that onto scalloped card in white & then onto the 'Square Frame die' which was heat embossed with Ivory Fran-tage on the raised parts only.

I used 2 different leaves dies, these are my favourite ones. I also used the 'Just Married - Wedding' die but just the wording part & heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I then attached that to the larger banner die & created an arch with it across the frame.
I added gorgeous flowers & hearts shaped in each corner.
This is my 2nd card using the gorgeous new 'Heart Filled With Butterflies' die, again using Ivory card. On this card on the bottom layer I used the 'Mask Art A5 Grunge' from Dutch Doobadoo & dry embossed it onto the card. I matted it onto white card & then added lace & machine stitched around the edge.
On the 'Heart' die I heat embossed all the butterflies with Ivory Fran-Tage. I did this by using a rangers clear embossing pen.
This photo shows you it complete, tbh the photo does not do it justice as it really looks so pretty in real life & adds a new dimension to the die. I cut & embossed this die 3 times.........

...........2 of the hearts I matted onto scalloped hearts. The 3rd 'Heart' I cut & embossed I cut out all the butterflies & attached them just by the middles to make them 3D on the top heart.
I also added pearls that I cut form the lace so the hearts could be laid flat, it seemed a shame to throw them I recycled them lol.

I added the 'Sending Love xoxo & Carpe Diem' die to the top & bottom corners. I heat embossed them with Gold embossing powder.

The 2dn heart I glued on with Collall 3D glue, I also glued the bottom layer to the card using this glue to raise it all up. 

I added a Butterfly to each card using different dies & heat embossing them with gold embossing powder.
I really enjoyed making these cards & I was actually pleased with the way they turned out. They look better IRL..........its hard for our photo's to do our projects justice isn't it.

Anyhoo's that's it form me, sorry about the long post & lots of photo's. Hopefully these cards have inspired you in some way.
Pop on over to Noor Design UK to see all these fabulous products & much MUCH more. Seriously I cant get enough of these products & all the products inspire me to make more than just my usual cards.

Take care & enjoy your day
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxxxxx
