Belated Birthday Wishes

Hi everyone

For today’s quick card, I used a gorgeous die from Simon Says Stamp which I cut twice – once in glitter paper and once in vellum.

I offset the glitter die cut to expose just a thin shadow of vellum. I added some Hero Arts Metallic Décor and a sentiment from Clearly Besotted to complete the card.

I’m entering this in the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge – ‘birthday bash’.

Thanks for stopping by!


Gorgeous dresses

Hi there

I used one of my oldest Hero Arts stamps today together with some gold embossing powder and also my new golden peach embossing powder from Altenew – it is fabulous! I fussy cut the images and them mounted them on a distress ink background. I added a sentiment from Clearly Besotted to finish off my card.

I’m entering this card into three challenges – Retro Rubber challenge (anything goes), Casology challenge (clothes) and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (emboss it).

The dress stamp is one of the oldest in my collection. It doesn’t have a date on it but I think it is at least 8 years old.

Thanks for looking!


I Heart Dad!

Hi everyone!

Both the Simon Says Stamp Monday and Wednesday challenges have a masculine theme this week. I pulled out my Tim Holtz products for my entry! I used a crazy bird stamp and the Distress Oxide inks to colour the image, background and balloons. I love those inks!

I used dies from My Favorite Things and part of a Hero Arts stamp to create the balloons.

I couldn’t resist a bit of shimmer so I added a drop or two from my Nuvo aqua shimmer pen!

I really enjoyed making this card, but it’ll probably stay in my craft room as my own dad definitely prefers my CAS cards and so that’s what I’ll be making for him this week!!

Thanks for looking!



Aloha parrot

Aloha cousins!

(I heard that phrase A LOT during my trip to Hawaii some years ago and always think of it when I hear/see ‘aloha’!)

Anyway, when Hero Arts released their latest stamps, I fell in love with the colour layering koala, but soon realised I had overlooked the fabulous parrot set! I used it to make today’s very quick and simple card – and of course I had to use the ‘aloha’ sentiment!

Have a great weekend!


Koala-ty friend!

Happy Saturday!

I fell in love with the new koala layering stamps from Hero Arts as soon as I saw them and I was literally stalking the Simon Says Stamp website until they appeared!

I couldn’t wait to ink them up as soon as they landed on my doormat! And who says koalas have to be grey!

I’m entering this into the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
