Yellow Roses

Today I have a Thinking of You card to share with you featuring just a bit of simple watercolouring and embossing. I used Simon Says Stamp's Best Mom Ever set for the gorgeous flowers, and the sentiment is from their Sending Happy Thoughts set.

I love my Gansai Tambi watercolours soooo much… they are just so easy to use. And they make me feel like an actual artist. :)

Right - back to it. 
I've had a crazy busy long weekend packing sequin orders after the lovely Jennifer McGuire posted THIS gorgeous set of cards on Saturday featuring some of my shaker selection packs. I have just caught up!! :)
Have a great day!

Today I have a shaker card for you created with the Oval Yay Die I designed for Clearly Besotted. This die makes shaker cards so easy - all you need to add is some shaker material. Here, I chose a brand new colour I am releasing today: it's called Opal Whisper. (Although I removed the Opal sequins for this one, and just used the white and silver parts of the mix. This made it show up better behind the aqua patterned paper.) I decided to add a few more details to this card, and Hero Arts Shy Panda fit the bill perfectly. Then I stamped a sentiment from Hero Art Congrats Stamp and Cut beneath the die cut Yay.

Love this star paper… it's from Becky Higgins High Five pad. I took delivery of 8 new paper pads this morning and I couldn't be happier. :) Loving Craftie-Charlie for next day delivery at no extra cost!

Friend Balloons...

Just popping in with a colourful birthday card that I created with elements from Simon Says Stamp's June Card Kit, along with their new Friends die and Lila's Heart stamp set. Just some simple fussy cutting here… plus a little bit of die cut editing. I trimmed the 's' off my Friends die cut - this is a great way to get more from your supplies. :)

Smile Smile Smile...

Today I'm sharing another card that I made with Simon Says Stamp's fun June Card Kit. There's so much colour in this kit!! To create this card, I used the cute Smile die from the kit, and cut the word 'Smile' ten times from some gold glitter tape. So simple. Then I just stuck them onto some paper from the kit.

Such a sparkly and fun card. And using glitter tape makes the process of adhering the words to the paper so much easier!

Hope you have a great day today!
See you again soon.

Smile Mini Card

Today I have a 4 x 4" mini card to share with you that I made with lots of different Simon Says Stamp products.
The cute new Smile Circle die is the focal point of my card. I cut it from Slate Grey cardstock, then added some silver thread loops. The background is made with the lovely Falling Hearts stamp - I stamped it on white card with Versamark, then added white embossing powder and heat set. Finally, I inked it up with lovely Pale Blush Pink ink, then die cut with a Stitched Square die.Smile Mini Card by Lucy Abrams 
Moonshine sequins add an extra touch of sparkle.
