Bee Mine – Avery Elle

Hi there – I’m over on the Avery Elle blog today featuring the cutest little stamp set ever, Bee Mine.  This also has a co-ordinating die set with a sweet little dotted “trail” for the bees  – how gorgeous is that?  For the diagonal strip behind the focal image I used two of the border dies from Dotted Borders and also used Finished Frames on the front mat of the card.  I coloured the images with Copics and finshed it all off with a bit of dazzle with some red Stickles and Wink of Stella.

Simon Says Stamp – Better Together Release

better together

Hello – just popping in with a card I created using the gorgeous Locking Hearts stamp set from Simon Says Stamp from their brand new Better Together release.  I used Bundle of Stitched Shapes again on this card – I think it’s my most used set of dies of ALL time!!

Better TogetherI cut the banner from acetate and then used gold flakes on the back of it to give a fabulous gold shimmer – I LOVE this product!  I used Simon Says Stamp Red Lipstick ink (such a deep red – it’s gorgeous) to stamp the larger of the interlocking hearts and the smaller one in Versamark which I embossed in Gold Tinsel EP from Ranger.  I did actually attempt a video for this card but my camera died halfway through and it was all a bit of a disaster!  Maybe I’ll try again on my next card!

Ok , time to get the kiddos to bed and open a teeny bottle of wine – well, it is nearly Christmas!


Kiss, kiss <3

Been playing in my crafty space with the gorgeous Mama Elephant PANDAMONIUM stamp set and, what I now know to be a retired stencil from Memory Box!  I ran my card panel through my Big Shot to emboss the design before blending a combination of distress ink in Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar onto the raised pattern.


The wee pandas were then stamped and die cut (I love them SO much) and placed with a simple heart between them (coated in glossy accents).  The sentiment has been stamped onto a word bubble die cut (from Talk Bubbles by Simon Says Stamp).

This is the first card I’ve shared in AGES that hasn’t been a DT project – feels very weird!!

Thanks for dropping by!
