Simply Graphic

Bubble birthday

Hi everyone!

I have a LOT of birthdays in March, so I am busy replenishing my birthday cards! Here’s one that I made with the new Chunky Greetings set from Woodware. It reminds me so much of the bubble writing that I used to do at school!

I stamped, embossed and coloured the greeting using Distress Oxide inks and then added a little Simply Graphic die to complete the card. I actually added the bow from another present die as I felt the die cut needed a little more height. I added a glitter dot to hide the join.

I’m entering this card into the current Case this Sketch challenge.

Purple and Brown….

Hi everyone!

This week’s Colour Throwdown challenge has a beautiful palette – light purple, dark purple, beige/off white and brown. But I liked it so much, I was kind of overwhelmed. Do you ever feel like that? I didn’t feel like any of the designs I thought of would do it justice. So I was stuck…..

Then today, a whole load of Altenew inspiration appeared in my Instagram feed and I decided to play with the Garden Treasure set in the hopes I could make it work with the combo. I think this is the first time with an Altenew layering stamp that I haven’t used different shades of the same colour! I think I quite like that beige base for the flower.

Anyway, I used Altenew inks for the flower and leaf and stuck them to a base I’d created using a Spellbinders embossing folder. The sentiment is also from Altenew. Once the card was assembled, I felt it needed a little something extra so I added a few glittery die cuts from a Simply Graphic die.

Birthday parcels

Hi everyone!

For today’s card, I used the wonderful new parcel dies from Simply Graphic. As soon as I saw that circular parcel, I knew I would have to buy the set – it’s so unusual!

I cut the parcels twice – from some My Mind’s Eye paper and then from some silver glitter paper and did a bit of inlaid die cutting. I popped the parcels onto a lightly inked background and added a sentiment from Clearly Besotted to finish off the card.

Die cuts only

Happy Sunday everyone!

It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards. This fortnight’s theme is die cuts only and our sponsor is Stamplorations.

I think this may be my favourite theme to date! I love using my dies – they are brilliant for quick CAS cards!

For my card, I used an image die from Simply Graphic together with a sentiment die from Savvy Stamps and a banner die from My Favorite Things.

I’m also entering this into the current Color Throwdown challenge (lilac, green, grey and white).

My teammates have shared some gorgeous CAS cards on the AAA Cards blog and Noga Shefer, an instagram follower, is our Guest Designer.

Thanks for stopping by – I do hope you play along with us!

Happiest of Birthdays

Hello there!

After days and days of making heart/love/friendship cards, it felt good to pull out some different supplies today.

For this card, I used image dies from Simply Graphic plus a sentiment stamp from My Favorite Things which I stuck to a kraft tag cut with a Penny Black tag die.

I’m entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (add a die cut).

Thanks for stopping by!

You are loved – a lot

Hi everyone!

There’s such a cute sketch over at the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week. My card was really quick to make – in fact it took me much longer to find a heart die that was broadly similar in shape to the Simply Graphic leafy heart die that I wanted to use.

I ended up using a Memory Box heart die to cut some red cardstock and then adhered the leafy heart cut from gold glitter paper. The sentiment is by My Favorite Things.
