Simon Says Dance !

ooh as soon as I saw Hazels fabulous sketch and Glitz theme on the Moving Along With The Times Challenge I just had to get out my new
Simon Says Clear Stamps HEATHER'S DANCE BALLET TAP JAZZ Lot Exclusive This is the first time I am using these and love this set !! ;-)

I alos followed the lovely colour scheme on the Colour Create Challenge who are asking for Hot Pink / Dusky Pink / Ice Chocolate and the added optional extra of pearls and swirls :-)

I chose some swirly and dusky papers from BG Eva paper pad and distressed all the edges with antique linen distress ink,, my fave colour ! I used some light brown shimmery card for layering. The image was stamped with memento ink and coloured with copics and 3D'd. I used copic glitter pen and lace stickles to glam it up a bit :-) The dancers and text were also from the same set,,, the ribbon and pearls from my stash ,,,:-)

I am also entering this into the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge whose theme is One For The Girls :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-) Before you hop off you may be interested in my weekly blog candy, you can see it at the top of my blog :-)

Hubby's B'day card ;-)

It was Ray's birthday yesterday,,, and I did have every intention of making him a card in time ,, but things just conspired against me ,,, so this is a belated one ,,, only a day late ,,,, not too bad eh !! ;-) I followed the fabulous sketch on the Friday Sketchers Challenge :-)

This is one of the newly released stamps from the Yummy In My Tummy collection from Magnolia :-) Chef edwin ;-) Isn't he fab ! Ray loves to cook so I thought this image would be perfect for his card :-) I am still into recycling after last weeks Funky Fairys Challenge ,,, so this card will be recycled into my friend's sons 21 st birthday card ,,,, he is a chef so this is perfect for him too :-) lol
These fabby new stamps are almost all the way across the Atlantic now and will soon be on the shelves at the Simon Says Stamp store :-)

I coloured the image with copics and plonked him on a magnolia plate:-) The papers are from Funky Fairys Papercrafts Gorjuss Gingham Collection
90 colours for £2.50 !! bargain !! I also used a little whitewash coredinations which was cuttlebugged and distressed with sandpaper.
The sentiment is from the
Simon Says Clear Stamps SIMPLY THE BEST SENTIMENTS Lot Exclusive Set as you can tell I use this set ALOT !!
