Simon Says Floral Bliss and Sketched Hearts

Hi all :-) the fabulous Simon Says Stamp June Card Kit arrived yesterday and its chic full of romantic goodness! The kit has sold out but the contents are available to buy separately 'phew'!!

If you would like to receive a card kit then you really do need to join the monthly subscription system, which works out at $5 cheaper. They are such good value for money that they sell out almost immediately!
I also used a gorgeous Sketched Hearts Die, its the first time I have used this and thought it went perfectly with the kit.


My friends daughter has just got married and this is the card I made for her and her husband ;-)

I used the Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink from the kit to stamp the floral background and also to squeegee onto a piece of paper for the die cut heart. 


I used a Nuvo Shimmer Pen to add glimmer to the black card and then I added glossy accents over the top of the black heart (this is a Jennifer McGuire tip and it does give a lovely finish ;-))


and I finished the inside too 




Challenges:

Unicorn.   Special Occasions
Incy Wincy.   Black/White + one other color
Kreativeinkauf.  Pennants or Hearts
Crafting With Friends.  Anything Goes




Hope you all have a great week :-)
Happy Crafting

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge


This week the challenge is

Furry Friends 


Most of us love our little furry friends, whether you are a cat, dog or wild animal lover we will be looking forward to seeing what furry friends you choose to feature on your creation!
This week we are showcasing Paper Smooches Products. You don't have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.

Please pop over to see what our super talented guest Sonia and the DT have made XX

I used a Pineapple Crush clear stamp set and Frame 2 Wise Die 


As soon as I saw this stamp set I fell in love, such a cute little critter with his pineapple ;-) What could be nicer than a Pina Colada on the beach!

I coloured with Zig Brush Pens and added a palm tree from a Tim Holtz Surf Shack Die. For the coconuts I used some wood dots that are no longer available but THESE are very similar. 


For the background I used a Simon's Exclusive Triangle Pattern Die and I also finished the inside too.

Simon Says: Little Critters










Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Little Critters 

Whether you choose to feature your own pets or prefer to delve into the wider animal kingdom we will be looking forward to seeing which little critters you choose to feature on your creations! 


As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I used a Tiger from a set of Dylusions Die Cuts and a little bird from a Cat Among The Pigeons stamp set along with a new Creative Dyary to create a fun diary planner page.


As soon as I saw the Creative Dyary I thought that it would be a fun way to plan and when my daughter saw it she said that she would love one. These would be great for kids in high school too don't you think! :-)

I love that the background pages are decorated, it makes it so easy and quick to decorate, perfect to do while travelling too, I love it, can you tell!! :-)


The lovely Stephanie, who works for Simon, is here with her boyfriend on vacation and this was my planning for last week ;-) 


I love the cute little bird chatting to the tigress, maybe the little bird is asking her not to eat him ,, haha ;-)



Thanks for looking!
