Today's card features an adorable stamp called Tweet Holiday which I've stamped in Memento & coloured with my copics.

I couldn't decide which colour I wanted for my main background & eventually decided to use my old favourite SSS Woodgrain card stock & die cut the largest of my Wonky Stitched Rectangles dies to create the main background. 

 To create my smaller background I die cut another smaller rectangle using my Wonky Stitched Rectangle die out of Canson XL watercolour paper  & using die cuts of my Stitched Clouds dies as templates I ink blended some clouds on it using Pumice Stone Distress ink. I then used my SSS Falling Snow stencil with embossing paste to create the falling snow over the clouds.

I fussy cut my image and mounted it on fun foam before attaching it to my card. The numbers I have die cut using an SSS die in Simon's silver sparkly card stock & the sentiment is from Simon's Winter Scene stamp set.

Beautiful Mermaids! - Simon Says Stamp DT

Today's card features My Favourite Things Stitched Star Peek A Boo Window which I've just discovered is sadly no longer available in store but there are lots of alternatives available here.

 To create my background I took some Canson XL watercolour paper  which I added some simple stripes of different shades of blue watercolour paint using my Altenew Watercolour Pan Set & water to represent the sea. 

Once dry I stamped the bubbles from Simon Says Stamps Beautiful Mermaid stamps set in Simon's white pigment ink onto it my background & allowed the ink to dry then added some darker blue watercolour paint to the bubbles. The mermaid, star fish & oyster are all from Simon's Beautiful Mermaids stamp set & have been stamped in Memento & coloured with my copics. The sentiment has been stamped in Simon's Black Pigment ink as I find it gives a crisper result than Memento so is always my chosen ink pad to stamp sentiments in black ink with.

I've attached a double layer of fun foam to the reverse of my image & added a Hero Arts Pearl to the oyster in the shaker window & some Sea Breeze Jewel Drops &  Simply White Crystal Drops to embellish.

For today's card I have gone with the Travel theme with cute Santa on his sleigh. My card features a mixtures of two Lawn Fawn stamp sets, Winter Village & Winter Skies.

To create my background I die cut a circle to create a mask for the moon & attached it to Canson XL watercolour paper & ink blended around the moon using Broken China, Stormy Sky & Faded Jeans distress inks. I then blended a little of Simon Says Stamps white pigment ink over the Broken China distress ink to a create a lovely light ring around the moon, & once dry I stamped Santa in his sleigh in Simon's Black Pigment ink.

 To create the village scene I stamped and masked three rows of houses & trees in Pumice Stone Distress Ink onto watercolour paper, & coloured them using my Altenew Watercolour Pans & then fussy cut them ready to attach to my card.

 I attached fun foam to the reverse of my front row of houses & trees to add a little more dimension & randomly added some glue to the rooftops & trees then dusted them with   Rock Candy Distress Glitter using my glitter duster.

Happy Wedding Day!

Good afternoon lovely peeps!

It's been way too long since I updated my blog with anything other than DT cards, & as today is a very special day for a truly lovely member of the Simon Says Stamp family I thought I would share the wedding card I have sent to her & her husband Sam.


Originally I was going to make my DT card for this weeks Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Wedding / Anniversary challenge the card I was going to send to Steph & Sam, but I decided I didn't want to share their card before their special day so went all out in a style I haven't created in for a long time, embellishments galore! 
I just really hope Steph likes this card more & isn't disappointed she didn't receive my DT card!


 As you can see I have used lots of my favourite products on this card, some I still use all the  time & others that have been neglected of late!

The papers are from First Edition & are called The Promise, the Mr & Mrs sentiment is from Simon Says Stamps Congratulations stamps set & is stamped in Simon Says Stamp Black pigment ink& the names & date are computer generated.

The clay frame & fancy corner have been created using Martha Stewart air dry clay & clay moulds, I've die cut Simon's Stacked Hearts & Butterfly Drift in white wood grain card stock & added some lace, a heart charm, Twine, Pearls, & Simply White Crystal Drops.

I've been deleting some of the photos of cards stored in my laptop as I have way too many folders in My Pictures & have discovered lots & lots of other cards which I've created over the past couple of years but not got around to sharing on my blog, so I will be gradually adding them to my blog over the next few weeks to have a long overdue catch up &  little Miss Tilda will be reappearing here!
