This week I am featuring Clearly Besotted Bird Bath Clear Stamp Set, and I have masked a couple of the images and coloured them with my copics.

I've kept today's card very simple due to how much I am struggling with making cards at the moment due to the pain in my thumb and hand. I have simply added a few drops of Nuvo Duck Egg Blue Crystal Drops and stamped a sentiment from Simon's Friendship Messages stamp set in Simon's Black Pigment Ink directly onto my card.

Whatever The Weather! - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!

I've had to take a couple of weeks break from my DT due to tendinitis & trigger thumb which is incredibly painful & the splint I need to wear is really restrictive so I've not been able to do anything creative. I can't even take the caps off my copics myself at the moment which is really frustrating.

I couldn't make my card with my hand and thumb in the splint so I got creative with surgical tape & emery boards & made a smaller splint which I am regretting now as the pain is really not nice, but the plus side is I did manage to finish this card.

This week I am featuring Sunny Studio's Cable Knit Embossing Folder on my card which wasn't what I had intended to feature but it was the easiest option as I had to improvise due to my hand.

My image is Simon's beautiful Blossoming Clear Stamp from the new Fresh Bloom release, and the sentiment is from Simon's Friendship Messages stamp set  
I kept the embellishments simple and just added some of Simon's Flickering Butterflies & Simply White Crystal Drops.

This week I am featuring Lawn Fawn's Winter Skies stamp set on my card & I have coloured the cute image with my copics.

 I stencilled my background by using Simon's pretty Falling Hearts Stencil with Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany & Festive Berries distress inks onto white card stock, & I also blended a mix of these distress inks over a spare piece of card which I spritzed with water & set aside to dry.

I matted my background onto Simon's Lipstick Red card stock & also die cut a strip of card using Simon's Scallop Stitches wafer die and added a strip of SSS Silver Glitter card stock to place along the bottom of my card to sit the cute image on.

I die cut Simon's pretty Small Heart Doily from my card stock I had previously inked and spritzed & I popped Simon's Small Love You die cut onto the heart & added an Action Wobble Mini Spring to the back & fixed onto the back of the heart for my interactive element.
