Today I have a rather girly card to share with you. It features an adorable little bear stamp from Hero Arts Baby Animals set, along with lots of yummy Simon Says Stamp products.
To make the background, I simply stamped the Falling Hearts in Versamark on Cotton Candy cardstock, added Clear Embossing Powder and heat set. Then I die cut it with the Stitched Shapes rectangle die.
The tag is die cut from Fog cardstock, stamped with a sentiment from the Hand Lettered Encouragement set, and splattered with Calico Shine Mister Hueys. I added the little stamped bear, paper pieced the heart he's holding, and finished off the tag with some Sparkle Cord

Some little Pale Pink sequins added a final touch of extra shine.

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!

Ok - that's all for today.
I'll be back soon…
Bye for now.

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. :)
