Shaped Cards at Noor Design UK

Challenge time at Noor!DesignUK and a real simple card from me today. The challenge is to make a shaped card.  Two prizes as usual

The prize will be a £10 Gift Voucher to the Noor!Design UK Store

And we have a second prize from our lovely sponsor The Ribbon Girl of....

£10 The Ribbon Girl Voucher

 I have used the Dutch Doobadoo Card Art Owl to make the shaped card, great for quick cards and very effective.

I used the Romance paper pad, love the colours.

The tag is from the Dutch Doobadoo Labels

The purple lace was sent to me as a birthday gift from my crafting friend Judy, thank you Judy I will have to use more of this paper pad as it perfect :)

Party Girl

Hi Everyone,

I should now be in California still have a whale of a time, I hope, lol.  My card today is using one of the party girls.

Papers are Maya Design available from Live and Love Crafts.

I used the butterfly border  and butterfly two pieces

I used the rolled roses die for the pink flowrs, they look realistic don't they.

The oval pearl string is from The Ribbon Girl.

I used leaves from the oval die set, love the elegancy of these as well as well as two other vintage flourish leaves.

Christmas in Norway

Good morning,

I'm still on holiday, I think I will be in San Francisco when you read this, how exciting :)

My card today is again using Pion Design's Christmas in Norway collection and the Colour Palette Green III, I think I've used 3 sheets of this palette colour already, lol.

I have also used the Dutch Doobadoo pumpkin box to make a little gift box to go with the card, it's so cute and dead easy to make and of course can be used as any gift box for any ocassion.

The image is also from the new release Grandma's Attic - Christmas Joy.  I used the centre of the die that I used to cut the frame to draw the oval shape around the image.

I was trying to leave the christmas trees in the paper showing and I sort of managed it.

I cut the trumpet with holly from the tags sheet.

Lots of pomegranates,pine cones,  flower spray and hortesanias.

The bobbly sprigs are by joycraft and are available in the Noor Design UK store, they come with sparkle on them.

The trailing holly is also a new Noor Design die and I cut it and applied in several areas.

I also used the new Ice Crystal Circle and added a little sparkle and tucked under the layers.

You can also see the bobbly sprigs better in this photograph.

The largest white flower with bobbly centres is also available at Noor Design UK and the website photo doesn't do these flowers justice and you will see from this picture.

The pumpkin box, which can be used as any gift box is so cute.  I added the new vintage flourish holly diecut and a little charm .  The tag was cut from the matching memory notes and the Green III colour palette.
