Simon Says Stamp Exclusive 'Objects of Love'

Good morning all and we're enjoying a lovely bright sunny day here in Gozo, hope the weather is nice where you are :-)

I am sure you must all be aware that Simon Says Stamp have just had a new Valentine 2014 release and I am here today to share another card I made using these gorgeous new products. 

I definitely had a 'lightbulb' moment when I made this ,,, haha :-)


I really like how this turned out ! :-) I stamped the shade onto vellum and coloured with a copic marker on the underneath side. Then came the tricky bit,,, how was I going to adhere it without the glue showing ,,,, hmm... another lightbulb moment !! I pooled a dollop of Helmar Quick Dry Adhesive (love this stuff) onto a scrap piece of paper and gently dragged the outer edges of the vellum through it ,,, and it worked ! 


Thanks for looking, hope you all have a fabulous weekend ,,, are you doing anything special ??  :-)
