Hello, Beautiful!

Hello and happy Friday. Yay!
Today I have a card to share that I made with the February Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp. Unfortunately, this kit has now sold out, but the products I used are available separately, and I know many of my readers are subscribers too. :)
Hello beautiful by Lucy Abrams
I chose to use the gorgeous patterned paper from Crate Paper's Hello Love collection as my backdrop - isn't it so beautiful. I added a die cut tag and stamped the fab sentiment from the Hello Beautiful stamp set, then embellished with some matt black sequins from my Midnight Shaker Selection and a bit of black silk ribbon.

Sweetheart Shaker

Hello again.
Today I am sharing a happy shaker card that I created with products from the Simon Says Stamp February Card kit, a cute mouse stamp from Mama Elephant's Lunar Animals set, and my new Fairy Dust Confetti Mix.
 SweetHeart Mouse by Lucy Abrams
I really love this adorable sweetheart sentiment from Simon's Hello beautiful stamp set - isn't the handwriting gorgeous? I thought it was a great match to this adorable Mama Elephant mouse. I cannot resist mouse stamps. :) I die cut a tag from watercolour paper, stamped and embossed the sentiment and mouse, then watercolored with my Gansai Tambi paints.  To make the background, I stitched acetate to some pretty Crate Paper paper, leaving an opening. I filled it with my new Fairy Dust Confetti Mix, then stitched up the gap.

And I have more to share with the SSS February Card Kit over the coming days... stay tuned.

You're the Bestest Card Set

Today I have a clean and simple card set on the Hero Arts blog featuring some of their lovely new products.
You're the Bestest b by Lucy Abrams for Hero Arts
To make the cards, I first die cut the word 'Love' from the Love Stamp & Cut set, then adhered it to some white card. I stamped sentiments from You are My Happy, and added a butterfly from the Mason Jar Bugs set. I stamped the butterflies again on some Fancy Pants Happy Place patterned paper, cut out the wings and adhered them to the card.

I added a touch of Wink of Stella to the butterfly, and a pierced trail created with my sewing machine.

It took just a few minutes more to make three of these cards than it did to make one. And now I have extra cards to send. Yay for making in duplicate... I hardly EVER manage that!!
Have a great day. I'll be back tomorrow with the shaker card I promised yesterday!! Whoops. :)

I'm Here for You Shaker Card

Today I have a simple shaker card created with a few Simon Says Stamp and My Mind's Eye goodies.  I die cut a heart from a My Story Journaling Card, backed it with acetate, then stamped a sentiment from I See You and added the Painted Hugs die cut from black card. I created a pile of sequins from my Icicle Sequin Mix on a patterned paper panel die cut with a Stitched Rectangle then adhered the journaling card on top with foam tape.
I'm Here for You by Lucy Abrams
I love this sentiment stamp... And can you tell how addicted I am to all Simon's painted word dies. :)
