Ice Cream favorite flavor

Hi everyone,

Today's card uses a Simon Says Stamp stencil and some distress inks and the Sunny Studio Stamps Two Scoops stamps and dies.

I am entering this card into both the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge 'Stencil It' and also their current Flickr challenge using stencils.
Here's my card: 

I started  by creating my background panel using the Simon Says Stamp Diagonal Stripe stencil and 2 different colours of Distress Oxide inks.

I die cut the finished panel with a Stitched Rectangle Scallop Frame die and added that to a base of Lawn Fawn pattterned paper called Watercolor Wishes which was die cut using a large stitched rectangle die.

The ice cream and cone were stamped with different layers of ink colours and popped up onto my card using foam tape.

The sentiment was added, a few sequins and some Lawn Fawn twine and that completes this card.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Have a Wild birthday

Hi everyone,

Today I have a card to share that I created for the current 'Stencil It' challenge at Simon Says Stamp here.

I started by masking off a portion of a Newton's Nook stencil and moving the stencil around blending in Simon Says Stamp ink as I went along. I applied more pressure to the base of each leaf so it would appear darker and then lightly blended the colour up the leaf. 

I used a stitched die and cut out a square for my lion. On the card base I stamped a Lawn Fawn lion and coloured it with Copics using 2 different Copic colours to blend a background for my lion.

The sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder onto a piece of black cardstock.

I popped the whole panel and sentiment strip up with foam tape and that's it for my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Wishing you a beautiful adventure

Hi everyone,

Today's card is for the current Simon Says Stamp challenge 'For the Boys' which can be found here.

Here's my card:

I started by creating a stencil using Lawn Fawn's Puffy Clouds Borders die set so I could add the clouds blending 5 different colours of Distress inks. I then moved onto stamping the images and colouring the boy and little doggie with Copics and stamping the bicycle with Peacock Feathers Distress ink.

Once everything was complete I ran the background through my die cutting machine to add a stitched detail to the edges of my card. Stamped the sentiment and popped the panel up and all images up with foam tape onto a panel of patterned paper. I added some Nuvo drops and that's it for my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

You rule

Hi everyone,

Well I think the warmer weather is finally starting to arrive. Lawn ornaments and lights are out and the deck is starting to look more like our outside summer home space. Love it!!!

I have a card today for the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge here where the theme is 'For the Boys'.

I used the Little Dog Agenda stamp set from Mama Elephant and picked 5 little doggies that could be for boys, skateboard, guitar, cape, mug or beer and a beach ball. (Of course they would also work for little girls too).

I started with a patterned paper panel which I die cut using a Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle die. Then I went on to die cutting frames (intentionally not lined up) using 2 of the smaller frames from Hero Arts Postage Stamp Infinity die set out of contrasting paper.

I popped up the whole panel up with foam tape and then added each little Copic coloured doggies to a frame. All papers and sentiment are from Lawn Fawn.

Well that's it for my card and thanks for stopping by.

Happy Mother's Day

Hi everyone,

A very Happy Mother's to all you wonderful moms out there. Give yourselves a bit pat on the back. You deserve it!
I can't think of a better way to spend the day but in a morning Yoga class and then later on dinner with my hubby and kids. Maybe sneak in a trip to my local stamp store.

Today I have a card to share for this occasion.

I started by stamping this beautiful Dahlia bouquet from WPlus9 on to some watercolour paper and then heat embossing with gold embossing powder.

I used several colours of Zig markers to colour in the image. I stamped the sentiment with the same gold embossing powder and added to the bottom of the card. I used a Pierced Mat die from Avery Elle and some patterened paper to add the border around my card.

Added a few sequins for some sparkle and colour and that's it for my card.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
