Botanical 3D Embossing Folder Card


Hi all :-) I am here to share a card I made using a fabulous Tim Holtz Botanical 3D Texture Fades Embossing Folder that was included in the latest June 'Fly Me Away' Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp.


I started by embossing the watercolor paper and splattered some of the Distress Resist that was also in the kit. When it was dry I blended some Worn Lipstick and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Inks and then sprinkled with Beach Sunset Infusions. I then spritzed and splattered with Gold Shimmer Spray and added a few gold sequins to finish 

I added a sentiment banner a d stitched around the edges. I then used some gold string for the butterfly trail. 


and I finished the inside 


Thanks for looking!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Simon Says: Use More Than One Stamp




Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge


This week the challenge is 

Use More Than One Stamp 

We are showcasing Honey Bee Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 gift voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I used Penny the Platypus!Clear Stamp Set and Coordinating Die Set  to make a card and matching envelope for a very special young lady. 

Penny has been a very popular choice among the DT this week! 3 of us chose her! ;-) 


I stamped and cut Penny 3 times to create a collage/3D look and coloured Penny with Copic Markers and Prismacolor Pencils and splattered the background with Dylusions Inks.

I added a couple of strips of Washi Tape, one is from a Tim Holtz Deco Pack and the other is an older one and I can't remember who made it, but I have quite a selection of Washi Tapes and think you can never have too much! I love it! 


I love her googly eyes, isn't she a cutie ;-) 


I used this photo of a Platypus as my 'model' and thought her bill looked a bit purplish in colour so I went with that, just in case you were wondering whats going on ;-) 


The night before I made this card there happened to be a Wildlife Documentary about Platypus by David Attenborough on the telly, so interesting to watch and what a coincidence! Definitely worth watching if you have a few mins ;-) 


So now it's YOUR turn to get out your stamps and get stamping!
