I have just got this new die from Poppy Stamps and couldn't wait to use it.  I can see its going to be so versatile and will be so useful for masculine cards.  I  coloured the inside of an embossing folder with Mowed Lawn and Peacock Feather distress inks and sprayed with shimmer mist , then embossed some card and placed it behind the die cut. For the sparkly green I cut some glitter card with the same die and re inserted the letters.  I am adding this card to the current Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge.

My neighbour asked me to make a Naming Day card for her niece's baby so I got out my favourite Baby set from Hero Arts and stamped the cute elephants onto gingham paper.  I seem to be using a lot of glitter card lately, not my normal style but I love the added sparkle!!

After a few really busy weeks at work I am finding more time to craft, hopefully I can visit a few blogs as well this weekend.

Have a great Sunday.

love both of your cards - agree the versatility of the birthday die is really great - you might just have enabled me to spend some more money!!!

I really like that die you used for the first card - the pop of glittered paper looks great behind the greeting.

And, those little elephants on the second card are too cute! I would like to know what a baby naming day is?? Never heard of that.

Gorgeous cards Sally. I have the birthday die too. Love the way you've created the marbled looking colours as a background. Cathy x

Both cards are delightful. The die set is lovely and works beautifully with all the greens and blues on the card. Adore your elephants. Nice idea.

What a fun birthday card, Sally! Love your gorgeous inking behind some of the cut outs and the sparkly "birthday" is so pretty! I think I'll have to add that die to my wishlist:)

Your baby card is adorable! The gingham elephants are so sweet and I love the glittery heart balloon!

Hope you summer holidays come around soon. Adam just finished up on Friday - he is one happy boy:) Enjoy your Sunday:)
