Thanks a million!

hi there,

Just sharing a card that I created last weekend but just got around to photographing.

I used 4 different colours of Twinkling H2O's on some watercolour paper. Love watercoluring😀.
The SSS big Thanks die done in black is perfect for this background. I added a strip of Washi tape down each side and then popped up the whole panel.
Too bad the photo doesn't show the beautiful shimmer created by the H2O's.

Thanks for stopping by,

When skies are gray

Hi there,

Don't you just love shaker cards. I certainly do even though I have shyed away from making them as I thought they were all too complicated. Actually they are quite fun😀
Here's my shaker:

First I created my background using a stencil and various Distress inks. I die cut the frame from bright green card stock. I then stamped the sentiment from 2 different stamp sets onto the striped background.
I assembled the shaker and added various coloured sequins and once that was in place I die cut
the 'You' from patterned paper and added that to the outside of the shaker panel.

Well that's it and thanks for stopping by.


Supplies used:
SSS Diagonal Stripe stencil - SSST121323
SSS Stiched Rectangles dies - SSSD111455
SSS You die and Make Me Smile sentiment from the You Stamp set
Pink Paislee 'When skies are gray' sentiment from the Hello Sunshine set
Lawn Fawn Beachside 6x6 paper pack

Happy Spring

Hi everyone,

Finally Spring has arrived but it didn't quite look like that when I woke up this morning with about 10 cm of fresh snow.
Anyways it pretty much all melted once the sun came out.
I have a card today for the current challenge at cue card is Spring.

Here's my card:
I used the new SSS Raindrops stencil with whipped spackle masking off a section as to not cover the entire card.
Then I stamped the umbrella and coloured with Copis which I fussy cut. I then covered the entire piece with Glossy Accents for a wet look.
Stamped the sentiment and added a few sequins.

Thanks for stopping by,


Supplies used:

Simon Says Stamp Raindrop stencil
Penny Black April Showers stamp set
