Little Cupcakes & Tilda With Heart Phone - Simon Says Stamp DT

Hello lovely peeps!
It's been a funny old week here, lots to take in and adjustments to be made as one of my babies is going to be leaving muma & flying the nest! They are both all grown up (26 & 22) & I'm just not good at cutting those apron strings, I kind of like my babies, most of the time lol.

Today I have two cards to share in two different styles! One is CAS & the other is more ummm, Mandy style lol.
It's Wednesday which means ..........    

 at
& this week our challenge is
Inspiration Colour Swatch

Isn’t this ‘Sweet Treats’ Color Combination lovely !
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog

We are showcasing our very own SIMON SAYS STAMP EXCLUSIVE PRODUCTS this week. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used

Don't forget you can enter our challenge 5 times and there is no limit to how many challenges you combine your entry with.


Do you use Instagram ?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 

Today's DT card features some of Simon Says Stamps cute little cupcakes stamps and dies from the Love Labeled stamp & dies set. I have used all the colours in the colour swatch on this little card & I also took inspiration from the cupcake picture theme. 
I think I'm finally getting the hang of CAS as I didn't sit agonising for ages worrying it looked too plain & wanting to put "just a few" flowers on it lol.
I have used Simon Says Stamp Mint, Cotton Candy & Surf Blue card stock and Doll Pink & Audrey Blue ink pads to stamp with (all linked at the end)
The copic colours I've used are -
RV55, RV52, RV10 / E33, E31, E30 / BG13, BG10, BG000

  3. Wahoo!!! Thank-you so much Mandy!! I'm tucked up in bed with a miserable head cold, temperature etc etc so you most definitely have made my day. Your pins look the prettiest pins ever so can't wait to receive.
    Back to you, you can master any style and CAS is no exception, it's beautiful! As for the second Tilda, she looks like a very happy party girl. It's absolutely gorgeous. Hoping that your nest leaver is not straying far so that they can pop by very often. Huge thanks again, Nicola

  16. What pretty cards. I'm going to address the one with Tilda on it since that's the one you entered in our challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ. I love the image and your coloring is superb...your stitching is just fabulous. The arrangement of this card is wonderful and, I, too, tend to hoard beautiful papers :) Fabulous sentiment (who makes it?) and although I adore the blue paper bow, it's the bow on the side of the image that is what our challenge is about. It's a pretty bow done in a twine and I love how you did it in triplicate (?), and added the rose in the center. Very pretty die cuts, punches and your stick pin is very pretty! I've looked through your blog but didn't have time to leave comments on the cards, and your art work is all beautiful. Thanks for adding that little twine bow and entering our challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ this month. Hugs, Gail
