Please pop by the challenge blog to see what our lovely guest, Melissa and the DT have made :-) This is Melissa's last week in the spotlight and it really has been fabulous to see her awesome creations every week! Thanks so much Melissa XXX!! :-) 

It's my daughter, Amy's, birthday today and she is a Crazy Cat Lover so I just had to use a Crazy Cats Cling Stamp Set and Coordinating Die Set  for her card!


Amy is very artistic so I thought I would go a bit crazy and artsy with the colouring of this cat and I have to say I love how it turned out! 

 For the background I used a Gradient Square Layering Stencil, Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Inks, I then splattered with Black and Vibrant Turquoise Dylusions Ink Sprays.
 I used a Trinket Frame Die, cutting out several layers of Black Card Stock to create  a frame deep enough to create a shaker and then popped in lots of coloured sequins 



and I made an envelope to match, I think it makes cards so much more special to be in a decorated envelope, don't you think? 



So now it's YOUR turn!

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.

Simon Says Stamp September Card Kit!

Do you subscribe to the Simon Says Stamp Card Kits? It is always such a thrill when the postie delivers mine, I can't wait to open up the box and have a good ol' rummage to see what delights are inside!! :-D 

The September kit has an absolutely gorgeous 'Look For The Rainbows' stamp set and a beautiful Tim Holtz Kalidescope 3D Embossing Folder and I used them on todays cards



I love the little birds and decided to colour them up using Copic Markers to look like robins, I then fussy cut them but have spotted that there is a die set now available so I have popped them in my shopping trolley ;-) 

I used the embossing folder to deboss the design and then splattered with Lime, Black and Tumbled Glass Inks


and I finished the inside 


The Island Blue envelope that is in the kit looks lovely with this card don't you think! all sorted!! ;-)



In the kit there is also a pack of gorgeous Tim Holtz Idea-ology Metallic 8x8 Papers so I made this simple card using a pinkish sheet and the embossing folder. I sanded the surface to make it look a bit more distressed and then splattered with black ink. I added a few of the Nuvo Crystal Gems to add a bit more interest ;-)
