    Gold Heat Embossing with Simon Says Stamp

    Hi friends. Sorry for the radio silence, I am currently battling illness.  I have antibiotics so all should be better soon.  The month has flown by and it’s now reminder time at The Flower Challenge: Monochrome.  So either black, white,grey or one colour or shades of one colour. For this card I have gone for gold with white and vellum.  Lots of heat embossing of Simon Says Stamp products using their Folk dance stencil for the background with images, dies and sentiment from their lovely spring set. Some white nuvo drops were added for accents. I hope you like the card and will join us at The Flower Challenge.

  • Clearly besotted,  The Flower Challenge

    June Reminder @ The Flower Challenge

    Hello friends Its reminder time at The Flower Challenge For my entry this time I chose #12 Tic-Tac-Toe and the column blue/CAS/sentiment For my card I took some aqua paper and lightly pounced some hero arts unicorn white pigment ink through a Winnie and Walter leaf stencil for a subtle background. Next I stamped my clearly besotted poppies and stems in ranger archival black ink and Altenew blue ink, and cut them out.

    Winnie and Walter cute ink blended baby card

    Hi everyone! I hope your having a great day. Here’s a cute baby card using Winnie and Walter Goodies: Welcome to the Family with Evelin T Designs.  I dusted off my silhouette cameo, downloaded the Winnie and Walter scenery: Big Bang confetti cut files and cut out one of the designs on acetate to use as a stencil. I used distress inks to blend my starry background and zig markers to loose watercolour the cute giraffe tag.  I added some cute beads to the string and some silver star sequins (I used my silhouette pick up stick to place the stars on the card and it has left a residue,…

    Red + stencil card

    Hey everyone, today’s card uses something new for me to try, a stencil.  And I loved it, I used distress ink and a blending tool and it is so easy to create a quick, vibrant background.  I added some ink splatters, made my own (slightly wonky) tags and die cut some little stars instead of sequins.  I can’t wait to get some more stencils and play a bit more.   I am entering this card into a number of challenges: simon says stamp Flickr challenge #48 – Stencil Simon says stamp Monday challenge – red, white and/or blue Inkspirational challenge #112 – just add red Please let me know what…
