Be my Valentine

Another day, another Valentine card. Just can’t stop. In fact I have so many heart dies and stamps I could probably do a Valentine/love/friendship card every day for the next month before using them all!

Today’s card uses the Simon Says Stamp Heart Parade Die, which I think was one of my first SSS dies. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.

As part of my crafty goal to use all my embossing folders this year, I used four folders by four different companies – Sizzix, Carabelle Studio, Crafts-Too and the company that sparked my interest in embossing and die cutting – Cuttlebug!

I’m entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge – it must be love and the Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge – love/hearts.

Hearts Border cards

 

Happy Saturday everyone!

I didn’t have much time to craft today, but I did manage to make these three cute inlaid die cut cards using the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Cupids Heart Boarder die.

I also tried out the new Avery Elle liquid water colours – love them!

I added sentiments from My Favorite Things and Clearly Besotted to finish the cards.

Love You

Happy Friyay everyone!

 

Ah… embossing folders. I love them. I can’t stop buying them. I just don’t use them enough! So one of my crafty goals this year is to use all of my embossing folders – even my old cuttlebug ones!

 

I used a relatively new addition to my embossing folder mountain – a heart embossing folder from Carabelle Studio. I created the background using ink from My Favorite Things and then swiped some Altenew grey ink over the raised image.

The sentiment and banner dies are from Simon Says Stamp. I embossed the ‘love’ die cut with clear embossing powder a couple of time – love that glossy effect!

Embossed branch hearts

Hello everyone!

I’ve been playing with the Simon Says Stamp Brushed Branches background stamp today. For these cards, I embossed the image and then blended some distress oxide inks over them. I just LOVE those inks. They blend so nicely.

As Valentine’s is less than a week away, I decided to turn my backgrounds into CAS Valentine cards using a die from Memory Box and a couple of sentiments from Simon Says Stamp.

Which is your favourite??

Colourful Cosmos

Hello everyone!

When I saw the bright palette for this week’s Color Throwdown challenge (hot pink, lime green, yellow and pale blue), I knew I wanted to use them with the new Simon Says Stamp Cosmos background stamp. But I only purchased the stamp on release day, so knew that the stamp wouldn’t get to me in time!

I was DELIGHTED to be proved wrong when I saw my envelope from Simons on my mat this morning! Isn’t the stamp fabulous?

I stopped what I was doing and got colouring with my Twinkling H2Os and then added a few lines of Prismacolour pencils for a bit of depth. Really looking forward to playing with this stamp a lot more!

I’m also entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (anything goes).

With love

Happy Saturday everyone!

The theme for the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge is ‘love/hearts’ so I decided to play along using the current sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge blog.

To start, I created a few backgrounds by sponging on a few layers of Tonic Studios Nuvo embellishment mousse. I then cut each of these backgrounds, plus some black glitter card, with the gorgeous Clipping Hearts die from Simon Says Stamp and slotted the coloured hearts into the black heart frame.

I added a simple black frame cut using a My Favorite Things frame die and a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp to finish off the card.
