Penny Black Cheers!

Hi everyone :-) I hope you're all having a lovely weekend!

I am thinking of all of those affected by the horrific fires in California, my heart is with you all and hope you are all safe XXX ❤️


I made a couple of cards using a Penny Black Cheers Cling Stamp, I have used this stamp quite often and I have to say, it is one of my all time faves, perfect for so many family and friends ;-)


I coloured with Copic Markers and added a little shading with Prismacolor Pencils. I highlighted the design by diecutting the Birch Press Stitched Heart, I adhered several layers to make it pop up and I love the extra interest and depth this gives the design. 




and I finished the inside using a Simon's Exclusive Painted Happy Birthday Die 


Next up is a similar card made for my SIL's 50th Birthday!




and I finished the inside 



Thanks for looking! I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend XX

Simon Says: Thanks/Thanksgiving


Hi all!Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

This week the theme is

Thanks/Thanksgiving 
The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously giving away a FABULOUS $50 voucher to shop at the  Simon Says Stamp Store! All you have to do is take out your crafty supplies, make something following this week’s prompt, and add a link in the Inlinkz at the bottom of this post! You can join 5 times so you could have 5 chances to win! How AWESOME is that!! All winners are chosen randomly, so everyone has an equal chance to win! Woo Hoo!! Good Luck to everyone! The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your creative makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!
Please pop by to see what our fabulous guest Jo and the DT have made, awesome creations!! Thay are all such an inspiration! :-)

I have so much to be thankful for, a lovely family and friends, what more can a girl ask for!! :-) 


I made this card to send to a special friend using a Tim Holtz 3D Lumber Texture Fades Embossing Folder, a Simon's Exclusive Thanks and Leaves Clear Stamp Set  and Thankful Die 

The stamp set and beautiful Butterfly Adornment were in the November Card Kit, which has sold out, but the items are available to buy individually. 


I used Walnut Stain and Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide Inks to color the paper and then splattered with Black and Gold Sprays. When it was dry I used my finger and some Gold Gilding wax over the top. Looks so lovely and shimmery, and I love the smell of the wax too ;-)


and I finished the inside using a woodgrain cling stamp and Clear Embossing Ink to leave a watermark effect, I added a sprinkling of Gold Powder around the edges to add a little more interest.



Thanks for looking! 

So now it's YOUR turn to get creating!
