I have created a card featuring a rubber stamp by Hero Arts called Florals Sunflower Stem which I stamped in SSS Black pigment ink and have water coloured my image using a mix of Altenew watercolour pans and Simon Says Stamp Daniel Smith Watercolour Palettes.

I wanted the same shade of off white / cream for my background as my image 
is stamped on so I spritzed some watercolour paper with a mix of water & Confetti White Perfect Pearls and embossed it using Tim Holtz Botanical 3D Texture Fade Embossing Folder.

I have created a card featuring Honey Bee's Little Pickup Clear Stamps Set.

It's not like me to create a masculine card through choice & but this card just kind of happened without me giving it a second thought! I really like the way this stamp set is so versatile by giving you the choice of stamps to use which the truck can carry in the back of it. I have also stamped a couple of leaves to add to the top corner of my card from Simon Says Stamps Time For Wine stamps set & the images have been coloured with my copics and then fussy cut and attached to my card.

I created my background by die cutting the clouds dies and using the die cuts as templates with Seedless Preserves, Dusty Concord & Shaded Lilac distress inks. I then die cut one of Simon Says Stamps Stitched Circles out of my cloudy background & removed the die cut circle & replaced it with a white die cut circle for the moon. I then ink blended SSS white ink around the moon to lighten the sky around my moon.

The images have been coloured with my copics and then fussy cut and attached to my card & the sentiment is from Simon Says Stamps Hey Pumpkin stamps set.

I have another card to share today featuring a beautiful die from Simon Says Stamps new Cheer & Joy release.


I want sooooooo many products in this release, click the picture to take a peek.

I am featuring the pretty Holly & Pine Frame wafer die on this card & teamed it with Simon's Believe wafer die which I have die cut using silver glitter card stock.

I created a really simple background for my Holly & Pine Frame die cut by using Simon's Falling Snow stencil with my white gel pen and stencilling my snow using the gel pen. I moved the stencil a couple of times to obtain the look I wanted and then added a few Simply White Crystal drops & Clear Gems.
