Make A Wish!

April 2015 CK

Hello there!  I FINALLY got a chance to play with the SCRUMPTIOUS Simon Says Stamp April Card Kit!  I’ve been so busy over the Easter holidays with quite a few deadlines to meet and my poor kit sat there on the perimeter of my desk calling me “use, me, use me”!!  So, as soon as I got a minute I pulled it out and had a play.  I have another couple of cards in progress (shame work has to go and spoil things – humph) but this is my first one so thought I’d get on with sharing it.

April CK 1

 

I LOVE the foiled kraft papers in this kit – I don’t think this gold trend is going anywhere soon!  I used one of my new acquisitions – the Pretty Pink Posh Sitched Banner Duo die to die cut the centre panel.  I stamped the candle from the fabulous stamp set included in the kit onto vellum  (I LOVE this stamp set!!) and embossed them in gold and then created a little shaker window with some yummy sequins from my chum Lucy (see Lucy’s new Folksy shop for these sequin mixes – they are fantastic!).  For my inky background panel I gathered my distress inks and blended and blended until I had a really intense orangey design.  I splattered some Heidi Swapp gold spray and love how it kinda looks like bokeh?  Or is it me, lol!!  Finally I stamped and embossed the big sentiment from the stamp set on the bottom and adhered the lot to a top folding A2 card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
