I needed an Anniversary card and my favourite Simon Says "Arched leaf and flower "die was still on my desk so I cut more flowers!!  This time with coloured cardstock, I also die cut the "Leafy Branch" die in vellum and some pearly white card.

The background is dry embossed with the SSS Crystal Distortion folder, I then added lots of pearls and the rose gold foiled sentiment.

 I think the flowers look like cherry blossom!!

I shall add this card to the SSS Wednesday challenge "Anything Goes" and the Flickr group challenge "Dry embossing"

Looking forward to the weekend and hopefully some better weather.

Slimline winter card.

A mini slimline card with a wintery feel, love this stamp set from Heffy Doodles called "Wanna Build a Snowman". These cute penguins are fun to colour and easy to fussy cut.

The slimline frame die is from Simon Says and the background hills and trees is a really old Memory Box die. I added dimension to the snow with an embossing folder and also added some Nuvo glitter paste.

 I am adding this card to the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge "Slimline Cards".

Slimline card

Thinking of Spring and also new ways to use the "Arched leaf and flower " die from Simon Says. This time I have made a slimline card and  used the "Mini slimline windows" die for the frame which I have raised on sticky pads above tjhe gingham card.

cut and coloured all the flowers and leaves with zig marker, the butterfly is also a Simon Says die and I just found a scrap of patterned paper to match my colour scheme.

I was very lucky and hubby got me a Glimmer hot foil system for my birthday and I have made a batch of sentiments ready for my cards.  I love it and know hot foiling is going to be a fun addition to my cards.

 I am adding this card to the Simon Says Wednesday challenge "Slimline cards" and also the Love Flickr group challenge "Anything Goes".

We have family visiting this weekend for my daughters birthday, so looking forward to lots of cuddles with baby Eva!!

The new challenge over at the "Lets Squash it" blog is "Grasshopper Green" You have to use an embossing folder, the colour green and include an insect.

For my card I have used my new Altenew embossing folder called Garden Harmony which I have embossed in white and carefully rubbed over various green and yellow ink pads. I also added two die cut branches from the SSS Arched Leaf set, the die cut butterfly is also a Simon Says die. I added the gold sentiment onto vellum and attached to the card .

 I will also add this card to the Simon Says Flickr challenge "Anything Goes".

Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Its never to early for a Christmas Card!!

The Christmas Kickstart challenge for this month is "The sentiment takes centre stage" and I knew the perfect sentiment would be this die cut Merry from Simon Says Stamp.

First I embossed a white panel with the SSS Faceted Snowflakes folder and fixed to my card. I then die cut the sentiment adding glitter gold card for the letters I also added the die cut tree also by Simon Says.

 I shall also add this card to the SSS Wednesday challenge "Emboss it" and the SSS Flickr group challenge "Anything Goes"

We have just returned from a week away house sitting for my cousin, always love visiting as he has a fabulous garden with lots of wildlife visiting. Luckily the weather was good.
