Autumn Leaf Shaker Card

Hello. Today I have a card up on the Hero Arts blog. It features some of their digital cut files for the Silhouette. For this card, I merged two different cut files - Fall Leaves and Thanks Script - to create a new design. I then cut it from some Doodlebug patterned paper, backed it with acetate, filled it with sequins and adhered it to some Echo Park polka dot paper. Easy and fun. I adore shaker cards. :)

I found this HUGE bag of sequins in my local craft store at the weekend for just a few pounds. Perfect for my daughter who adores "seeklins"as she calls them. She's just getting into gluing things, and sequins are her favourite embellishments. 
I stole a selection for my shaker contents - red, orange, golds - perfect for Autumn!

Head over to Hero Arts to see the full instructions on how I made this card.
Have a happy day.
Bye for now.

You're the Best

Today I have another card to share that I created with some bits and pieces Simon Says Stamp's October Card Kit. And yes, it's another wiggle eyed one! I am addicted… And this adorable wood donut looks extra cute with eyes, right?
For this card, I added some patterned paper from American Crafts' Polka Dot Party pad and used Mama Elephant's Basic Set dies for the stitched edges. Such a simple and quick card.
You're the Best by Lucy Abrams A fun card for a fun friend. :)

Call Me

Today is my last guest post for Neat and Tangled. And I've had such fun playing with their sweet stamps and sequins. Today I have a little paper pieced card to share created with stamps from the Just Hello and Sketchy Cupcakes sets, combined with a lovely Mama Elephant tag die and papers from Lawn Fawn.
You know how much I love wiggle eyes… this little telephone NEEDED some. So I masked off the dial, and added a face. :)

OK, that's all from me for today. A special thanks to Danielle at Neat and Tangled for the guest designer invite. I've LOVED it.
Have a happy day.

Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember® October Card Kit Blog Hop

Hello, and welcome to my stop on Simon Says Stamp's Stamptember® October Card Kit Blog Hop. You should have arrived from the beautiful blog of the fabulously talented Kathy Racoosin. I bet she created something amazing for you…
If you have not hopped from the start, head to the Simon blog as you will not want to miss this one. :)
Right. Today we are showcasing SSS's newest card kit. If you've followed my blog for a while, you will know that I am a huge fan of their kits. They are always beautifully coordinated, with a fabulous stamp set, cute papers, and lots of embellies. And this month is no exception. There's even a die!!
So I have a couple of cards to share with you created with the kit. First up, a card featuring a couple of the cute wood pieces. I LOVE that coffee pot. (When my 2 year old saw this card she giggled a lot, and said "what's that watering can doing with eyes on?" :) She loves wiggle eyes as much as me!)

I used Mama Elephant's Basic set for the tag. (Adore this set!!!)

And on to my other card…
For this card, I had a bit of fun with the wooden glasses. I coated them in Glossy Accents, added gold glitter, then another layer of Glossy Accents to seal the glitter in.
I created the smiley face with the cute 'hello' stamp, and an upside down number 7 sticker (this is not in the kit). Some wiggle eyes finished it off. :)
Hello by Lucy Abrams
Look how sparkly and shiny those glasses are!!
