I was having so much fun playing with these gorgeous new products that I made 2 cards this week :-)

For this first one I used a Hearts About Love Stamp and Die Set and  Falling Hearts Stencil


I love shaker cards and I thought this die was just perfect to use to make one ! I used some sequins and Diamond Dust for the 'shake'.  The Diamond Dust is a bit like sugar, it is the perfect weight and makes a lovely crunchy shaker sound :-)


For my 2nd one I used  Die and Stamp Set Jar or LoveLots of Dots and Only Have Eyes for You stamp sets



A while ago I saw THIS CARD designed by Michelle and I thought it was a fab idea to make eyeballs using the Lots of Dots stamp set, so I used her idea to make this, the sentiment is perfect I thought ,, haha :-)


So now it's YOUR turn ! Happy Crafting !!


There are fabulous Give Aways and inspiration from fabulous designers on a daily basis over on the Simon Says Stamp Blog ,,,if you haven't subscribed by email you may want to so you don't miss out :-)
