Dear Best Friend

Hello everyone Happy Tuesday.
I'm here today to show you what I've made using new goodies that Tracy has recently added to her store. One are the new Magnolia Emoji stamps.....oh my they are sooooo darn cute. I think I brought 5 & I've coloured 4 already & I only got them Saturday lol.

Another of the newbies is the super fantadtic new die rangeTracy has added & there are lots more coming. First I will show you my card & then tell you more about the dies ;-)
The 3 Doilies that I've added to my card are from the new die range called 'Fantasy' Now I'm a huge die fanatic, I lurve dies but I'm also quite judgemental & tend to moan & complain when they dont cut properly. Recently I found out though that it can also be down to the die cutting machine & that really is true........so hubster got me new ones.
Anyhoo when I got the new die in my DT pack on saturday I thought I would do a test against another doily die.........here is the result below.
Now to give this a test the card I cut them with is either 25ogsm or 300 I cant remember which it is, it is thick card.
On the left is a Marianne die, I love this die & its a good die. Both have been put through the machine once, the Marianne die needs going through again to get a better cut because as you can see it has missed bits. However when I took the Fantasy die out it had cut beautifully, I am so impressed with this die. The company did assure Tracy they are good but the proof is in the cutting ;-)

Well the Cutting is fantastic, let me tell you & the designs that are coming are truly stunning, I want them all lol.
I added flowers from my DT pack but I took out the centres this time & added stamens from Noor Design UK, Tracy has a HUGE selection as well as a huge selection of Foamiran.........the biggest selection in the UK!!!

I have cut flowers from the beautiful lace Rosy Leaf Pink, this lace you can use whole as it is or bby cutting off a flower & leaf & using it singular.
The sentiment is Little Darlings & I cut it out using Magnolia Sign die from the recipe collection & of course added some bling.

The stamp is called 'Heart For You Tilda' & I stamped her withbrown ink onto Fabriano watercolour paper & colorued her with distress ink refills & markers & then I sealed it with Rangers Micro Glaze which Tracy should hopefully be getting in stock soon. I also added Pearl Dots around her using a pearl pen.
I cut the image out with Little Darlings Fancy Squares & layered her onto a piece of paer cut with the larger die, that paper is from 'Heart Painted'.

The centre panel is cut with Magnolia Recipe Card die & I inked the edges with Pumice stone. I also added Grace Lace across the centre of the centre panel before adding the image. 
I've also added pearls cut from pearl string.

The gorgeous paper is from the updated version of 'Heart Of Roses', this is truly a beautiful pad, this will be used LOTS lol. I inked the edges & machine stitched all around the edge including the recipe card in the centre.
I've also mde Roses using the Rose & Heart die from the Recipe Collection, the stems were cut from a Pion paper & the buds from 'Heart Painted' another beautiful paper pad.
I also added a bow using the die that came with the Swedish Tilda With Bow from the stamp & cutz collection.

Hope you like my card today. I would also like to thank everyone for the lovely messages & emails that were sent to me for my tutorial last week & I hope you will enjoy future ones.

Come back tomorrow when we have a brand new challenge, the new die I also used on my challenge card.......yep thats how much I love that die. 

Thanks for stopping by, it really means such a lot to us girls. 
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
