Another card made with the Wild Cuddly Critters

Thought I'd try a card with a more masculine theme. The strip on the left is a silver foil stripe but when I take a picture of it the light reflects off of it to make different colors! Just love this stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. Second entry in their May Wednesday challenge called Sparkle. #simonsaysstamp #ssswchallenge

I tried to get the silver foil a second time and it still reflected colors!

Oh and I have to show the back since I now have my personalized stamp from Village Impressions

More Wild Things....

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge called A Bit of Sparkle. This card features the Simon Says Stamp Wild Cuddly Critters set.This is take one..... #ssswchallenge

It's hot out today!

Finally time for a summery card. This one is made with the embossing folder Drapery by Tim Holtz and the stamp set by My Favorite Things called Soak Up the Fun colored with Copic Markers. Of course couldn't put down the Lawn Fawn Rectangle Fancy Scallopy Die so added that around the side. Sprinkled with some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkle Sequins. A bit of clear Wink of Stella on the water part and a die cut from Simon Says Stamp border hearts in foil to add more sparkle of course.

My first card with Dare 2B Artzy stamps

This company and its unique stamps and papers are new to me and intrigued me when I saw the products being used for cards. This is my first attempt and has been copied somewhat from one on their website. I made a few changes such as stamping the image a bit differently and using zig clear clean markers on  bristol paper. Then I cut out the top of the image and popped it up over an embossed panel with adhesive foam. The embossing folder is one by Tim Holtz and Sizzix also part of a two pack called Texture Fades Embossing Folders by Alterations, Time Holtz and Sizzix 2 piece Drapery and Woodgrain set. It was super hard to find only but I did find it still being sold at Creative Inspiration: https://creativeinspirations.ca/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=27_185_190&products_id=4717

Since I am usually run late on cards that need to be mailed I thought today I'd see if I could do a few last minute Mother's Day cards. These took all of thirty  minutes to make with a few simple stamps, dies and embossing folders. The dies, Lawn Fawn Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Stackables and My Favorite Things Sentiment Label Strip, We R Memory Keepers Bloom Embossing Folders, White Blizzard and Green Apple Nuvo drops plus a few stamps laying around. Oh and my first use of Dare 2B Artzy pattern paper.Two different sentiments were used, All Celebrations from Penny Black maybe and Message me from Clearly Besotted. Bunny stamps from Wplus9 Wishing You stamp set and boy from My Favorite Things Our Story Stamp set.

Just a few more Mother's Day Cards....

Cased this background from a card I saw somewhere online. Since I can't find it now I'm not certain it's the same. I wanted a clean and simple background for this Mother's Day card to focus on the image. The background layers are made with Lawn Fawn dies, Fancy Scallopy Rectangle and Stitched Rectangle Frames. The image is Wanderlust from A Random Fan and the sentiment is from one of the first stamps I bought which unfortunately I never labeled. I found a similar one to this from Craftin Desert Divas called Happy Celebrations. I also used Copic Markers to color the image and Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Crystal Drops and Glossy Accents with a touch of Wink of Stella pen on the moped for clear glitter. 

This next card is also a combination of products. Again using the Lawn Fawn Fancy Scallop Rectangle Die with My Favorite Things Sensational Stitched Flowers and a tag from their Blueprints 13 Die. Sentiment from Essentials by Ellen: Amazing Women by Julie and image from Stamping Bella stamp: Maisy and Madeline Have Some Tea, colored with Copic Markers and embellished with Nuvo Crystal Drops: White Blzzard Glitter. 

And this is a new and improved design of the one above....

And then I saw these bears and couldn't resist trying a bit of neutral designs...
