Simon Says Stamp 'Lotus Frame' Card Set

Hi all, how are you? I hope all is well XXX

I am here to share a set of cards I made using a GORGEOUS Lotus Frame Die  from the latest Simon Says Stamp Blossoms and Butterflies Release.  This die has sold like hot cakes and is currently on reserve and will be back in store at the end of the month. If you would like one I would suggest that you order one to be sure of getting it ;-) 


I coloured the flowers with Copic Markers and adhered the frames onto the acetate. 


For the backgrounds I used a new Sketchy Lines Background Stamp, which is also from the latest Blossoms and Butterflies Release, inked with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink 








for the insides I simple decorated using an extra flower.



Thanks for looking!

Simon Says: Spring Mood Board




Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Please pop by the challenge blog to see what our lovely guest Fabiola, and the DT have made :-)



I used a Bunny Wishes Stamp and Die Set and a Stitched Ovals Die Set to make a cute shaker card


I coloured the image with copic markers and used vellum instead of acetate for the shaker window. In retrospect I wish I had used the acetate option to make the paper and sequins in the shaker more vivid. 

I love this little bunny with the egg shaped balloons, perfect for a Springtine Birthday or an Easter card don't ya think!


and I finished the inside 



and made and deorated an envelope 





So now it's YOUR turn to take out your crafty supplies and join in the fun! :-)
