New Baby!

A new baby card for the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge "Animal Fun" using Heffy Doodle "Elephant" stamps and Simon Says Square dies.  I stamped and cut the elephant on some patterned paper and coloured the balloons with Zig Markers.

I shall also add this card to the Simon Says Flickr Group challenge "Splatter it".

Its our Wedding Anniversary today 38 years and its certainly a strange Anniversary, we usually try and go out for the day and have a meal somewhere.  This year because of lockdown its very different, we have ordered a takeaway from a restaurant in Bridport and I am looking forward to that but I am missing normal life.  Hoping we can get back to some sort of normal soon.

Have a great day and stay safe

Cute Gnome Die

I made another card for the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge "Splatter It" this time I used the cute Li'l Gnome die and made a Christmas Card.  Always good to add another to my stash.
I created the background by colouring with Zig Markers onto some acetate and spritzing with water , then smoshing it onto a piece of die cut card. I also got an old toothbrush and splattered the background.

Next I added my die cut Gnome and a sentiment, very quick to make so this would be great for batch card making.

Hope you are having a good week.

Splatter it!!

The current challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Flickr group is "Splatter it"  so I decided to make a really simple card and splatter the ink.  I stamped the flowers from the SSS Spring Flower set in black ink.  Next I got a piece of acetate and scribbled on it with Zig Brush markers, I then misted with water and placed over my flowers to add the colour.

Then I got an old toothbrush and splattered some ink over the remaining card.    Just needed to add the sentiment and voila, all done.  Quite an easy card to make but still pretty.

I shall also add this card to the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge "Use Dies and Punches" and the Flickr Love Handmade cards challenge

Have a great day
and Stay Safe!!

Christmas Kickstart Challenge

This months Christmas Kickstart challenge is "Wreathed in Christmas Smiles" and although I don't have any wreath stamps I wanted to play along.  I decided to die cut lots of coloured snowflakes and make a wreath.

I then stuck all the snowflakes onto my card and die cut the Li'l Gnome die from Simon Says and add him to the wreath.  The sentiment was computer generated.

Hope you are having a good weekend, the weather here is meant to change and get cold here so I am going to make the most of the sun and do some gardening.

Sending Hugs!!

Whilst the Simon Says Flora Background stamp was out I had another go at colouring it, this time I stamped and gold embossed onto a piece of patterned paper.  Next I coloured with Zig Brush markers and highlighted with my white Posca pen..

I then die cut the two tabs and embossed the sentiment on the white one.

I am adding this card to both the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge and also the SSS Flickr Group challenge.

I am so lucky to live in deepest Dorset and with this lockdown still going on and people confined to their homes I am lucky that the countryside is on my doorstep. We often go out early in the morning for our walks and I thought I would share some photos for you to see.

I hope where ever you live you are still able to get out for a walk.

Sending Hugs and Keep Safe
