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!

The beautiful peonies are from Simon's Delicate Flowers stamp set which I received in my May card kit. The kit is sold out but the contents can all be purchased separately. 

 I've water coloured the pretty Delicate Flowers using Altenew Watercolour Pans & then fussy cut them ready to attach to my card.

My sentiment is from Simon's Congratulations stamps set & I have heat embossed it onto vellum using white embossing powder

I have die cut Simon's Stacked Hearts twice with white wood grain card stock and adhered one of my die cuts behind my flowers, & the other I've cut up to add more hearts randomly around the flowers.

Today I am featuring lots of different Distress Inks on my card. 
This challenge was perfectly timed for me as it's my daughters partners birthday today so I needed a masculine card to give to him.

I used Simon Says Stamp Triangle Blast stencil to create my background & I lightly blended Scattered StrawBundled Sage & Broken China distress inks over part of the stencil, focusing mainly on the middle section of my card.


I tore my pieces of ink blended card to reveal the white core of the card stock & them rolled and glued them into the shape of candles. I stamped a sentiment from Simon's It's Your Birthday stamp set & then attached my paper candles to my card. I added a small piece of May Arts Twine inside each of my paper candles & randomly added some Duck Egg Blue, Bottle Green & Buttermilk Crystal Drops & a few Sea Breeze Jewel Drops around the candles.

For a change I decided to heat emboss my image using Rose Gold embossing powder to give my card a vintage look, & I then water coloured it using Altenew Watercolour Pans.

To create my largest background I blended Scattered Straw, Bundled Sage & Dried Marigold Distress Inks over a piece of white card stock and once dry I then stamped &  heat embossed Simon Says Stamps Rose Lattice stamp using clear embossing powder. By using clear embossing powder after I had blended my inks I could achieve a really pretty subtle pattern on my background. 

My middle layer of card stock has been stamped with Simon Says Stamps Modern Rose Blooms stamp & heat embossed in white embossing powder


The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamps Friendship Messages Stamp Set & I've stamped it in Simon's Black Pigment Ink.  I've embellished my card with twine, butterflies, Nuvo Simply White Crystal Drops & a pretty sparkly jewel.

 I've not used my copics for a couple of months due to my thumb problems making removing the lids so painful so it's been really nice to dust them off to colour this cute Stamping Bella Garden Girl stamp. 


 I've added some Twine, a butterfly which is die cut from Simon Says Stamp's Butterfly Drift die & Nuvo Violet Galaxy Crystal Drops to embellish.
