Furry Friends - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
It's a beautiful sunny & warm day here today.
My craft room blitz is complete & as always it was a much bigger job than I thought it would be, but it was worth it as I am enjoying being in there again :)

It's Wednesday which means -

Furry Friends

My card today features Paper Smooches Party Posse stamp set & also the Paw Print wise die & as you can see it's very CAS again!
I have die cut through my papers & added some glittery paper to create some lovely sparkly paw prints, & coloured the little cat with my copics before fussy cutting it and adding to my card.

I have another card to share today which is a baby card I created for my friend Sophie who has just welcomed her beautiful baby boy in the world. I have used the gorgeous Special Delivery Magnolia stamp which is probably my favourite baby stamp.

This card was created ridiculously late at night & finished in the early hours of the morning as my craft room tidy was complete & I wanted to stay in there & play rather than sleep like sensible people do lol.
 As you can see I went all out with embellishments on this card & created some cute baby feet out of paper clay and them painted them white & glittered them before adding to my card.
Everything I've used was already in my stash, some of which I'd forgotten I had & I rediscovered when blitzing my craft room.
I've used the lovely Baby stamp set from Simon Says Stamp & computer generated all of the personalized text.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges - 
 Midweek Magnolia's - die / chippies, Paper Shelter - lace & pearls, Crafty Sentiments - anything goes, Deep Ocean - our furry / feathered friends, Fairy Tale - things with wings

Last but not least Simon Says Stamp has a new release launching tomorrow called Cherished #ssscherished .
Here is a sneak peek & trust me this is gorgeous :)

That's me finished for today, thanks for stopping by

  6. Hi Mandy, your cards are fab. Wish I could do CAS but just can't stop once I get started! Just adore your new baby card. The stamp is fab and love your layout. It will be treasured I'm sure.
    Would you like to come and organise mine now lol, it's a right old mess, ha ha.

  7. Wow, those two cards couldn't differ more, I suppose. I just love the clean style of your kitty card and I'm also very fond of your color combination. Your baby card is also so well done. I'm not good a this lush card making style. I tried it years ago but it's just not my cup of tea. However, I'm always impressed seeing how others succeed in it, an your card sure is a stunning example.

  8. love this card with cute kitty!
    this other card is gorgeous!
