Featuring Simon Says Stamp products

Floral band

Hello Friends

Happy Saturday! Today I’m playing along with the  Freshly Made Sketches challenge using new-to-me products by Simon Says Stamp.

I heat embossed the beautiful SSS Floral Background stamp and coloured it using distress ink. I used a wavy background die to cut a piece of white card and then adhered the three panels to my card base. To complete my card, I added a die cut sentiment.

Color Throwdown – the pastel edition!

Happy Saturday!

It’s the colour palette that I’ve been training for people! You know I love my pastels and this week one of my favourite challenges, the Color Throwdown has a fabulous pastel palette  (pink, yellow, purple and aqua).

Perfect Easter colours too, don’t you think? Of course I couldn’t just stop at one card and made two this morning using dies by Simon Says Stamp, Memory Box, Poppystamps and Marianne Designs. The stamped sentiment is by Taylored Expressions.

Thanks for stopping by!

Jumping Easter chick

Hi Everyone!

My next Easter card for today uses the colours from this week’s CAS Colours & Sketches challenge.

I found this quite a difficult combo to work with – but inspiration struck late!

I used the wonderful Poppystamps Chick and Egg and Folk Decorated Eggs dies together with a Lawn Fawn grass die and a Simon Says Stamp sentiment.

Pretty Eggs

 

Hi there!

Today I’m playing along with the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.

As I’m still on my Easter card drive, I just had to play with my new Pretty Pink Posh Spring Eggs! I decided to use the wonderful Sunny Studios basket stamp to corral the eggs – and then at the last minute, I added a little fun chick (by Simon Says Stamp). The sentiment is also by SSS.

Happy Mother’s Day 2021!

Hi everyone!

Just wanted to share one of the cards I gave to my lovely mum today!

My mum adores all cats and so I knew one card I made for her would have to be kitty-themed. I pulled out another unused die that I bought when it popped up in Simon Says Stamp’s ‘deals and steals’ section – the Kitty Cat die.

I made three cats, colouring them with distress ink and adding a little face to each of them. Their whiskers are from the cats in the Penny Black set – I just love those curly whiskers, don’t you?

Finally I added an Avery Elle sentiment… and a few small gems.

Thanks for stopping by!

Starting on my Easter Cards

Hi Everyone!

I didn’t manage to make many Easter cards last year because, well 2020! So when I received my very first Easter card yesterday, I knew it was time to pull out all my Easter supplies – I have a lot and they need to be used!!

So here is my first Easter card for 2021. I used the beautiful Simon Says Stamp Tulip Collage background die and added the Poppystamps Folk Decorated eggs and a couple of smaller eggs from a Marianne Designs set. The sentiment is from a Your Next Stamp set.

Thank for stopping by!
