Flowery Birthday !!

Here is another card for the current "Anything Goes" challenge at the Simon Says Flickr Group.  This is based on this card I made back in December.   This time I have used the Altenew Beautiful Day stamp set, stamping the flower twice and gold embossing then fussy cutting and layering up for dimension.

The striped stamp is an older one but one of my favourites by Hero Arts called "Canvas Stripes".  All the background layers are cut with the Simon Says stamp "Stitched Square Dies" and the sentiment is computer generated.

Just a quick post today as I have cakes in the oven ready for our guests this weekend,

Hope you have a great weekend.

As the challenge at the Simon Says Flickr group is "Anything Goes" I decided to make another Christmas card to add to my box.

Used the Canvas Stripe stamp, an oldie from Hero Arts to create the background cutting with the SSS Wavy Stitched Scallop die and adding the Snowflake , also a SSS die.  Added some sequins for sparkle.

A CAS card , may have to make a few like this.

Looking forward to a Bank Holiday weekend here in the UK , we have friends visiting so hoping for good weather!!

Shaker Fun!

I do love a shaker card and this one was fun to make.  I recently won the Simon Says  "Shaker Present" die in a giveaway and wanted to use it to make a birthday card.  I stamped and embossed in silver some SSS "Artful Flowers" and fussy cut them Added some leaves from Altenew's Beautiful Day set and layered them up at the top of the present.  Added lots of pretty sequins and the die cut sentiment.  Easy to make but very pretty and sparkly, I do love a bit of sparkle lol!

Adding this to the current Simon Says Flickr group challenge "Birthday Bash".

Have a great week.

Christmas Cards!

Made my second Christmas card for this year although it was unplanned!!  I was playing with my Distress Oxide in trying to make a smooshed background which resulted in this attempt.  I wasn't sure what to do with it and looking through my dies I found this Simon Says Snowflake Die and knew it would be perfect on the blue.  I just added another smaller snowflake and some sequins, very simple but I like the effect.

I shall add this card to the current challenge at the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge "Distress it"

Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Happy Birthday

I have had a really busy week and have missed my crafting but today at last I have made a card.  This is quite a simple design using the Simon Says Cosmos Flower stamped and embossed in silver and coloured with Zig Markers. I have layered up on pink card using my Stitched Square dies to cut the layers.  The sentiment is also Simon Says.

I am adding this to the current Simon Says Flickr Group Challenge "Birthday Bash"

Hope to make some more cards this weekend as it looks like it will be raining most of the time, we are back to a typical English summer after the heatwave!!

Have a great weekend.
