Simon Says ,,,,, Have a Heart :-)

Hi all :-) I am still in the UK visiting family and friends in the UK but I will be heading home soon :-)

Long post ,,,,, get coffee :-)

This week the theme on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge is ,,,,,,,,


As always Heidi will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!
We are showcasing our very own Simon Says Stamp Exclusives this week, you don't have to use them, but if you have them we would love to see them  :-)

I made 2 cards today,,, I just LOVE the new Simon Says Stamp Valentine 2013 release stamps and dies and have used several on these along with papers and products in the February Card Kit ‘Style of Love’

First up ,,, I Love You


I used the gorgeous Curvy Heart Die 


I die cut the lovely paper and then adhered acetate to the back of it and then adhered the die cut pieces in place using glossy accents.  I used a Small Folded Banner Die and the sentiments are from a Just a Love Note Clear Stamp Set.


I finished with some small hearts cut using a Holiday Shapes Die and a button which was in the kit and some embroidery floss which was in the January Card Kit.

Next up ,,, Happy Love Mail 


I used the gorgeous Falling Hearts Die to cut the lovely pink card and layered it onto Hero Arts Kraft paper, I used a doily and fab little envelope from the February Kit and added die cut hearts using a Large Hearts Die Set, finishing with a cute button and embroidery floss. The sentiment is also from the same Just a Love Note Stamp Set and I added a few gorgeous wood veneer hearts which are also in the kit :-)


Thanks for looking :-) We have a new Designer in the Spotlight, Sem aka Semsee’s Sparkly Scribblings ! Please pop by to see what Sem and the DT have made this week :-)

Lisa Carroll said...

These are both SO beautiful, Lols! Love how you used the diecut on the first one, and the sweet little envie on the second one. And I didn't realize until now that we both did faux stitching around our big hearts! LOL I think because it's easier to see here on your blog than in the smaller pics over at Simon. Either I saw it subconsciously, or two great minds think alike! :) xo
