My First DT Project

Hello Everyone,

Sadly we have had to say goodbye to Gina.  I would like to personally thank Gina for starting out this journey with me and for producing consistently fabulous creations, so a huge thank you Gina and I will miss you being part of the team, sniff sniff  :(

This now brings me onto some exciting news that Vicky Pass also known as Sticky with Vicky has joined our team and what an entrance she has made with a stunning card but before you get to see Vicky's fabulous card using one of my favourite stamps, here's a little about our newest DT member.

Hi, I'm Vicky & my blog is called Sticky With Icky. I am married to my childhood sweetheart, I was 15 when we started dating & we got married when I was 16. I am now in my early 40's. I have 3 grown up children, 2 boys & a daughter,I also have a wonderful daughter-in-law to be & 2 fantastic grandchildren, a girl & a boy. I started crafting a few years ago when my dad passed away to keep my mind occupied. In all honesty I've never had a hobby so I didnt expect to stick at it, my hobby was looking after my family & decorating lol. However a few years on & I'm addicted hook, line & sinker. I'm extremely lucky to have a hubster who encourages me to buy crafting goodies as its cheaper than decorating he says............especially if you are like me & want EVERYTHING to match lol.
I dont have a particular style as I like to try anything, I dont want to get stuck in a rut so like to step out of my comfort zone as much as I can. I'm typically a very fussy & fancy type of person when it comes to my crafts.........I call it 'My Foofiness' when I add all the flowers, dies, lace & any other bits & bobs I put on there lol. I do like to make the odd CAS card whenever I can though as I think they are sooooo challenging to a gal like me lol. My favourite type of images are Saturated Canary, Magnolia & LOTV & I like to colour with Copics & Distress Inks & Markers.
I have to say I'm extremely nervous to be on this DT as these girls are so talented, however they are sooooooo friendly I know I am gonna love it here & I get to play with all the fantastic products at Tracys Noor Design UK store............what more could I ask for really ;-)

I would like to just finish by saying a huge thank you to Tracy for inviting me to this team & the DT girls for being so welcoming, it really means so much.

Hi everyone, well it's my first post today as a new DT member here at Noor Design UK & although I'm extremely nervous to be here I'm also very excited.
So onto my first DT project. I actually made a hanging for my craft room, the colours go perfectly with my craft room ;-)
I've used the fabulous Shape Art Ornate stencil to create the shape of the hanging. I've used the gorgeous Floral Paper pad although you cant really see the bottom layer :-( Both layers have been inked, distressed & machine stitched all around the edge.

I have used some gorgeous Noor Design Leaves Dies, I lurve these ones, they are my favourite.

Also added in some Bingo Stamps in Kraft.

I have also used the new Flowers Mask Art & added little flowers randomly with Structure Paste, I also did it to the bottom layer but then they are all hidden lol........glad I did it to both layers lol.

I layered up card so it looked like it was a pile of old postcards, at the bottom of the pile is a piece of corrugated cardboard. The first 2 are the postcard stamp, 1 on Kraft card, but the third is actually a blank piece of card lol. All have had the edges inked & distressed.

I used the gorgeous 'Old Letter With Rose' stamp, I coloured it with distress inks & then sprayed it to give it a sheen. It has a lovely sheen on it IRL. I tied it all together with string & added a Bark Heart to the centre. 

Well I hope you like my first DT project.

Dont forget if any products are out of stock you can still order them & Tracy will send them out as soon as they come in or you can email Tracy.

The products used can be ordered in the Noor! Design U.K. webshop:
