Wavy Easter Eggs

Hello everyone!

I’m still making my Easter cards and here’s one I created today using the Simon Says Stamp Peeking Chick dies.

I embossed the background using the background using the Simon Says Stamp Circle Doodles Embossing Plate. I created some blended ink panels using Altenew inks and an Echo Park stencil before cutting out the Simon Says Stamp Wavy Egg. Many thanks to Laura Bassen for her post-it note trick to keep those wavy egg pieces all together!

I then cut out the Simon Says Stamp Peeking Chick from some yellow cardstock and adhered it to my card.

Finally I added a Poppystamps die cut sentiment and a few stars to finish off the card.

I’m entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge – die cutting.

Easter Bunny Basket

Happy Friyay!

Today I’ve been playing with a few of my Poppystamps dies to create another Easter card… well it is that time of year!

I paired a die from the Country Baskets set with the new Peek a Boo Bunny. The bunny is attached to a square frame which I cut off but I stuck his little paws onto the basket because they are just too cute!

To finish off the card, I added a sentiment from Clearly Besotted and a few eggs from an old Marianne Designs die.

I’m entering this into the current Poppystamps challenge which is all about things that make you happy in the garden – and hey, bunnies and Easter egg hunts bring a lot of happiness!

Whittle Rabbit

Happy Saturday!

I love the Poppystamps ‘whittle’ series – super cute dies with a really good price point! So I was so pleased when I saw the latest spring/Easter release when I was at Simon Says Create last weekend.

The Whittle Rabbit went into my basket straight away… along with a few other dies of course!

For today’s card, I paired the rabbit with the new Tulip Collage die from Simon Says Stamp and also added a grass die cut from Lawn Fawn and a butterfly die also from SSS.

I’m entering this into the current Color Throwdown challenge (red, yellow, light green and white), the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (cute) and the Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge (spring).

Let’s eat Cheesecake!

Hello friends!

Today I have a card made with an old wood-mounted stamp by Hampton Art. The bird is cute but to be honest I really wanted the sentiment! Words to live by I say!

Anyway, Once I stamped and coloured the bird, I repurposed a Poppystamps tree stamp to create the branches for this little bird to stand on!

True love stem

Hello there!

I didn’t craft as much as I would have liked today, but I did make this card for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Ever since my glitter pastes dried up, I’ve been trying out new glittery pastes and today I used the Cosmic Shimmer Ultra Sparkle paste for the first time. Oh my goodness! The shimmer is amazing! I will post a little video of it over on Instagram!

Anyway, back to the card. I created the central strip using the paste over the Falling Hearts stencil by Simon Says Stamp. While I was waiting for that to dry, I cut the Poppystamps True Love Stem die from a couple of distress ink backgrounds; I then trimmed off the hearts from the purple/grey die cut and adhered them to the green die cut.

I pondered where to place the sentiment until I saw that there was a ‘perfect’ natural opening in the stencilled background that would fit a sentiment from my new Reverse Confetti set! Really very relieved that I didn’t mess up that stamping!

Bold Bright Star

Hi there!

Today I’m playing along with the current Poppystamps challenge where the theme is ‘starry night’. Now, I admit I was a little stumped when I first saw the theme as I don’t have many star stamps by Poppystamps and none that lend themselves well to a starry night scene. Then I read the blog post and the team is looking for projects with a star this month. Now, that I can do with my Poppystamps dies!

I used the Stitched Star Cutouts die to cut my base card and then I inlaid some pink and purple stars. I also added a few punched stars and an Open Studio/Memory Box stamped sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!
