Thanks Shaker Card

Hello! Today I have a shaker card on the Hero Arts blog. It features the very cool Thanks Stamp and Die set. I really adore these sets and have been using them a lot recently. They are so versatile… So for today's card, I mixed them with some heart paper from American Crafts' Serendipity paper pad, floral paper from Pink Paislee's Bella Rouge Pad, and some of my Lily White Shaker Selection

I love the way the die cut word looks like it's floating above the card. :) And here's another closer look at my Lily White Shaker Selection - it looks different at every angle. :)

Husband, Anchor

Just popping in to share the news that I have an article and 6 cards on 'quiet space' featured in Issue 135 of Simply Cards and Papercrafts. This issue was released yesterday, so I've not yet received my copy, but I'm excited to see...
Here is one of the cards I have in the magazine. I went with a masculine theme for all my cards It features papers from Webster's Pages Sprinkled with Love paddie cuts shapes and alphabet stickers, Pink Paislee's Solstice collection, and a sentiment stamp from Clearly Besotted.

I'm back with another card created with Simon Says Stamp's April Card Kit. Today's card showcases a couple of the gorgeous rub ons from the kit, the cute balloon stamp and the lovely washi tape. I used Simon's Mint Ink to stencil a grid background onto some of the Mint Card, then stamped my balloons in Mint to match.

I added some tiny stars to my balloons, and they catch the light beautifully. And aren't these rub ons incredible - such good quality, and I love the fonts...

OK - that's all for today.
See you again soon.

Today I have a card created with Simon Says Stamp's April Card Kit. This month's kit is super bright and vibrant, and has a fabulous birthday sentiment stamp set called Big Birthday Wishes. I'm always in need of more birthday cards, so got to it right away. :)
This card was created with a bit of almost everything in the kit. I just added a few tiny star sequins. Yay by Lucy Abrams 
And see how the gorgeous Bazzill gold foiled cardstock catches the light… yum.
Yay 2 by Lucy Abrams
I have another card to share later this week. I hope you pop by then to see…
Until then, enjoy your day.
