Spring Flowers!

With everything that's going on in the world at the moment my mojo has been severely lacking,  at last I have made a card using my new Simon Says Birthday die and some older stamps from the "Spring Flowers" collection.

I die cut the sentiment in gold and added a patterned paper center. next I stamped and embossed the flower in gold and coloured with my Zig markers.  I then fussy cut and layered up on the front of a die cut blank.

I also layered the square on some matching pink card.

I shall add this card to the Simon Says Flickr Challenge "Happy Spring" and also the Simon Says Wednesday challenge "Anything Goes".

Stay Safe everyone.

Colouring Fun!

I Have just got this "Critter Crowd"stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and inked it up to make this Birthday card.  I stamped and coloured with Zig brush markers and then fussy cut the images.  I have layered them up on a piece of patterned paper and added the die cut sentiment, also from Simon Says.

I shall add this to both the LOVE handmade cards flickr challenge, which is "Anything Goes"  and also the SSS flickr challenge which is "Crazy for Colouring".

Have a great week and stay Safe.

Thinking of Spring!

I have just got this Flora Background stamp from Simon Says and wanted to colour with bright spring colours.  I first stamped and embossed with Rose Gold embossing powder then coloured with my Zig Brush markers.  I then added the die cut letters in gold .

Adding this to the challenges at Simon Says Flickr group and the SSS Wednesday Challenge "Use some Green"

We have just got back from a week away house sitting for my cousin, he has the most amazing garden with lots of wildlife visiting.  Here are a few shots of the birds he gets.

New Die to play with!!

With my recent win at the SSS Flickr group I also purchased this Birthday Circle die,  after all the dreary weather here I am dreaming of Spring and inked up my SSS "Even More Spring Flowers" stamp and embossed the flower in gold multiple times on my card base.

I then coloured the flowers with my Zig Brush markers in bright spring colours, which was very therapeutic , its my water colouring part in Kathy Racs 30 day colouring challenge day 2.. Next I cut the Birthday die and added the sentiment and the blank circle to the card.

I shall add this card to a couple of challenges The Simon Says Flickr Group challenge "Do it with Dies"   The Simon Says Wednesday Challenge "Anything Goes" and their Instagram Challenge "Thinking of Spring"

It certainly does feel Spring like here today the sun is shining and the garden is coming to life, lets hope the rain stays away for a while as we are away next week in Surrey, fingers are crossed lol!
