Simply Graphic

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.

Simply thanks

Happy Saturday everyone!

I treated myself to an order from Simply Graphic on New Year’s Eve and it arrived this morning! Super fast shipping from France!

I just had to use my new dies today and here’s one of the cards I made! I used the colour combo from this week’s Colour Throwdown challenge (grey, ivory and black) and added a sentiment die from Mama Elephant.

I’m also entering this into the current Time Out challenge (thankful).

Thanks for stopping by!

Sparkly Polar Bear

Hello Everyone!

After posting a ton of festive cards with trees, I’ve been focussing on using my other supplies!

Today I chose this fabulous polar bear die from Simply Graphic and did some inlaid die cutting with glitter paper.

I used an Echo Park stencil to create the background and then added a vellum die cut to ensure the bear stood out against the starry sky.

To finish off the card, I added a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp.

I’m going to enter this into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge (winter/Christmas).

Thanks for stopping by!
