Simon Says Stamp Beautiful Flowers

Hi all :-)  I thought I would give watching World Cup football a miss and post a couple of cards instead ;-)

I made these using a gorgeous 'Beautiful Flowers Stamp Set' that was in the Simon Says Stamp June Card Kit


I used a MISTI tool to stamp the image with Stazon ink, I then used watercolours (also from the kit) to colour the flowers and when it was dry I heat embossed using Gold Powder.


I used a 'Sending' Die and gold embossed a simple sentiment too.


Thanks for looking!

I hope you're enjoying a fabulous weekend!

I made a couple of shaker cards to share today! 

First up is this colourful one made using a Tree Blossom Stitched Circle Frame and Vine Butterfly Craft Dies


I used some Dina Wakley Cotton Watercolor Paper and a Stitched Rectangle Die for the base and then colored with Broken China and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Inks. I then embossed using a gorgeous Tim Holtz 3D botanical Textire faded Embossing Folder, WOW!! so pretty! I spritzed and splattered with water and when it was dry I used my fingertip and Pearl Lustre Gilding Wax to highlight the raised areas, beautifully shimmery. 

I smooshed some Worn Lipstick, Squeezed Lemonade and Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide inks onto watercolor paper and die cut the beautiful butterfly. I used the negative as a stencil to outline on vellum for underneath the wings. 


and I finished the inside using a Memory Box Upright Script Craft Die 


My 2nd card is more CAS using White and Kraft card stock. 



I used a MISTI tool, a Simon's Exclusive Leaves Cling Stamp and Barely Beige Ink to create a lovely subtle background. I used pretty Stitching Butterflies and Painted Hello Dies to complete the look ;-)
