Sending Love & Hugs

Hi again, and happy Friday! Woo hoo.
Today I have a final card to you for my Simon Says Stamp Better Together celebration week. That's not to say I've finished with these products… oh no. I am just getting started…
My card features the Super Heart Border die. (You can see another card I created with this die HERE in case you missed it earlier this week).
I added a sentiment die cut with THIS die, and stamped with a stamp from THIS set. The pink ombre patterned paper is from THIS pad

Sending Love 2 by Lucy Abrams Have a great weekend. I'll be popping in briefly next week before taking a Christmas break.
Hope to see you then.
Bye for now.

New Home

Today I am continuing with my Simon Says Stamp Better Together celebration week. I had a request for the Make a Home stamp set, asking to create a new home card from it. I created a very simple paper pieced card using papers from Amy Tangerine's Stitched pad, and adding a sentiment from Clearly Besotted's Sentimental Type set.

Lots of Calico Shine splatters add some interest to the background.

This set is perfect for new home cards. I can't wait to try some more with it.
Back again soon. More to share…

Sketch Hearts

Today I have a pair of cards for you featuring Simon Says Stamp's new Sketch Heart die. This die has a fun almost grungy look, but I was determined to create a pretty feminine card with it. So I made one of each - a more grungy masculine card, and a girly card. Both feature papers from Amy Tangerine's Stitched 6 x 6 pad and one of the cool new Large Tag dies (I am going to be using these tags a LOT…).
So first, the girly version. :)
 For this card, I thought it would be fun to play on the 'You Complete Me' sentiment (from this new set) by paper piecing the heart together with two different papers.

I used two different sizes of Stitched Rectangle dies too - another die set that's going to be inconstant use!

And now my masculine version…
I did some inlaid die cutting here, adding a sentiment from Clearly Besotted's fabulous new Sentimental Type stamp set.
Some tiny staples add to the grungy feel.

So, two very different cards using virtually the same supplies. This was fun. :)
Back soon with more cards featuring these awesome new products.
Bye for now.

Wishing you Happiness

This week I will be celebrating the Simon Says Stamp Better Together release with lots of cards. Yay. I asked you lovely readers for requests, and you responded. So today I have a card that features the adorable Super Heart Border die. So, I was looking at this die and wondering what else I could do with it other than create a border. And then it hit me. Those hearts with tiny holes in them would look sweet on a heart banner. So I got going…
I added sequins and tiny beads to the banner which make it a bit like a shaker card as they move around on the banner freely. The sentiment is from the fabulous Sending and Wishing set. LOVE this set, and that it matches with one of my all time favourite sets Sending Happy Thoughts. (Oh, and check out this awesome bundle - both stamp sets and two dies!!)
Wishing you Happiness by Lucy Abrams Love all the sparkle on this card! The papers are all from THIS pad.
