You're Fantastic

I have a third card for you today that I made with the newest card kit from Simon Says Stamp
Today's card has a few additions, namely their Petite Butterflies dies (adore this set), the gorgeous Clustered Leaves die, and Avery Elle's Gift Tags dies.

The polka dot paper looks delicious with the addition of Calico Shine ink splatters. And I misted the tag too.

So there you have it - three cards made to highlight the gorgeous papers in the kit. And I've barely even touched the surface. I've said it before, but these kits really are amazing value. :)
OK - I'll be back soon.
Bye for now.

Oh, Hello There!

I'm back with a second card created with Simon Says Stamp's September card kit. I am continuing my theme of playing with the patterned paper in the kit, and today's card really does feature the paper. This sheet of paper needed nothing adding. It's just so cute! I love those animals, and that balloon

I simply added a stamped sentiment and some stitching. A less than 5 minute card! I really love patterned paper…

One more card to share with this kit - I'll be back very soon. :)

I Like You...

It's that time again… Simon Says Stamp has released their awesome new card kit. This month's kit has a book theme, with a fun stamp set, papers from October Afternoon's Public Library pad, coordinating stickers and other bits and pieces.
I've seen lots of cards already made with this kit, and most of them have featured the cute stamp set. So I decided to go a bit different, and focused my attention on the papers. Yum. So I have three cards to share over the next few days, all created with the kit. First up, this one made entirely with the kit contents.

I added some stitching to this otherwise flat card. It really helps add that home made feel. :) And that butterfly - it's cut from one of the papers in the kit. Cute.

And here's a look at the full kit. It's a fun one. :)
OK - I'll be back soon with my next card.
Bye for now - happy Monday. :)

Thank You Butterflies

Hello! I hope you are well. Things are great here. So great in fact, I've not had much time to play recently. But I have a card to share today. Yay!
I made this card with some more of the yummy digital watercolour paper from Pink Petticoat (that I also used on THIS card). I simply printed it onto some textured paper then die cut the butterflies using THESE cute Simon Says Stamp dies and stamped a sentiment with one of THESE stamps.
thank you2
I'm really into textured and recycled paper at the moment… they go so well with watercolour effects. I think I shared the link before, but these papers come from Eco-Crafts. Love them…
Thank You
Right - I'll be back as soon as I can…
My girls are growing up WAY too fast, and I need to watch them. :) Every day is different. And precious. :)
See you soon.

Blue Butterflies

Hello, and happy Friday.
Today I have a card over on the Hero Arts blog. It's a simple one layer card that features stamping and watercolouring. I used the gorgeous Three Artistic Butterflies stamp set for my butterflies, and a sentiment from THIS lovely set.
Subtle additions of Rock Candy Stickles and Calico Shine Mister Hueys add interest but not too much bling.
Hero Arts is having a one layer challenge at the moment - head over HERE to check it out. :)
Or go HERE to see full instructions on how I made my card.
Bye for now.
