Hi peeps and that is a bit of a bold statement but I think there may be a grain of truth in it.
I’m talking about my card for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Challenge where our theme is
Spots and / or Stripes
You can have just spots, just stripes or spots AND stripes, it’s entirely up to you!!!!!
The Design Team are showcasing Memory Box products this week but you don't have to use them of course. And I do have a bit of new for you re Simon Says Stamp - they have just started a Monthly Card Kit and these are amazing value for money !! Check them out but if you want one, best be quick as they are going like hot cakes.
… fabulous :)
Anyway, back to the challenge and as always, Heidi will be giving one lucky girlie …
… a whopper of a $50 voucher which can be spent …
… right here :)
Now about this card …..
... well it mau look ‘busy’ BUT the layout is very easy and there’s no image, just a couple of die cuts, some stick on letters and a bow.
I did do a bit of stitching but even so, it took no time at all, and I was really pleased with how it turned out.
The papers I used are all from the Echo Park Happy Days 12 x 12 kit - perfect for Feb 14th I think- and the letters are from the kit as well.
I really like this.
Remember the ‘happy accident’ from here?
Well I’d made another flower / rolled die thing which should have gone in one of the corners but it looked dreadful so I took it off and was left with a blob of gunky glue, hence the butterfly cover up. But I kept the flower / rolled die and it was on my desk when I started to make this card.
So I used the flower, rolled another circle in different paper, die cut a heart and inked the edges then put it all together.
The die I used here is a Memory Box Sanibel Border die – I think I used the negative but the beauty of this die is that you don't waste anything as both can be used and both look fab
So here’s the stuff I used -
Right, that’s me done and I hope you like the old card.
I do like CAS styles – I predict that this year will see a shift back to this sort of card – I may be wrong but it’s my prediction anyway. And I think that neon colours are going to be big as well – apparently they are all over the catwalk this season (like I’d know lol!!).
Anyway, I’ll be back tomorrow with something different but until then, have a wonderful day and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
