Animal Tower and some NEWS

So I have some exciting news… I am now part of the Clearly Besotted Stamps Design Team. Yay! You KNOW how much of a huge fan I am of Clearly Besotted, and when the lovely Stephanie invited me to be part of the team a few weeks ago I couldn't say yes fast enough. :) Seriously, I could not be more happy. 
So today is the start of Teaser Week…
I have a card to share created with the Best Birthday stamp set. These cute animals are actually balloons, but I decided to create an animal tower instead for something a bit different. Aren't they just adorable?? I stamped them on patterned paper, then added some detail with Copics. The sentiment is also from the Best Birthday set. All the new sets are available to purchase from 5th July.

Get Well Flowers

Today's card features two tiny flower stamps from Simon Says Stamp's new Cone Building stamp set. I wanted to use these tiny stamps to create a whole background, so I stamped them in Duckling, Melon, Roise Cheeks and Hollyhock inks on some smooth white cardstock. Next, I added dots, using the full stop stamp from the Grunge Alphabet set. Once dry, I added a sentiment from Avery Elle's gorgeous  Get Well set, then die cut with a Mama Elephant frame die and stitched the edges.

Very very simple, but I love creating my own patterned papers in this way. I can use just the colours I want!!Get Well Soon 2 by Lucy Abrams
OK. That's all for today. :)
Thanks so much for visiting. You rock.

Birthday Ice Cream

Have you seen the gorgeous new inks from Simon Says Stamp. In their latest release, they added 12 new colours to their collection, and they are gorgeous.
My card today features 7 of the inks along with fun ice cream stamps from the Cone Building stamp set - from bottom to top I used Duckling, Melon, Rosie Cheeks (my fave!!), Hollyhock, Wisteria, Blue Jay and Jellybean. After stamping, I die cut my ice cream using the matching dies, then added them to a tag with a sentiment from the Happy and Smile stamp set. Oh, and I gave my cone a little face too. :)

Sail Away...

Hi! And Happy Sunday.
So I have FINALLY had some crafting time this weeks, and my first appointment was with Simon Says Stamp's July Card Kit. I am sure you've already seen a load of projects made with this kit as I am a bit late with my projects this month, bit if you've not yet seen it, it's a lovely nautical themed kit with some lovely soft blue and grey patterned papers.
My card features some of the Authentique papers, a sentiment from the Sailing stamp set, and the fab anchor paper clip from the kit.

To keep my anchor in place, I stapled it with my Tiny Attacher.
