For my card I decided to do some no lines pencil colouring again and used the beautiful Peony Scrolls Stamp set (linked below) along with my Spectrum Noir Colourblend pencils.
 I went with blues and kraft card along with touches of gold for this card.
I used Simons Barely Beige ink to stamp all the flowers and leafs which I arranged and masked off as I stamped.
For the sentiment  used Simons Painted Hugs Die and diecut it twice, once from kraft and another from the dark blue card stock and then adhered them to give a drop shadow look.
I then heat embossed the sentiment, which is from Altenew set “You Are” using Simons Fine Gold Embossing powder.
I then finished the card off by adhering it too the card base and adding the gold and blue strips of card.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #407 Cute

Hey lovelies, I hope you are well and having a nice week ? 
It is Wednesday which means it is time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

It is time for a new challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday ChallengeThis week the challenge is:

Cute

This week we are showcasing Wild Rose Studio You don’t have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see what you create with them.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I used a really sweet stamp set called Owls on a Branch to create my card for this weeks challenge. 

I water coloured the image using my Spectrum Aqua Markers and wanted the image to be the main focal point so I just added a Stitched frame border and mounted the piece onto some Plaid paper that I was gifted a few years ago, I thought it went perfectly with the image. 

The sentiment I stamped in Simon’s Cobblestone ink (the same i used to stamp the image) this is a lovely ink if you want something softer than black. 

I added some white dots to the hats, stockings and owls along with some Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle. The card was finished off with some May Arts Twine. 

So now it’s YOUR turn.

Hey lovelies, I hope you are well and having a nice week ? 

It is Wednesday which means it is time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

The Color Of Love

This week we are showcasing Reverse Confetti You don’t have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see what you create with them.

I have used my favorite Reverse Confetti Stamp Set for this card, the super cute Coffee & You. 

I decided to go for some No Line pencil coloring for the image. 

 

I wanted the image to be the main focal point so I used Simons Clear Ink to stamp the coffee cup from this set along with a small heart stamp from Simon’s Ranunculus stamp set, I used my Spectrum Noir Gold Sparkle pen along with gold gel pen to add some colour the to the star on the cups & some Clear Sparkle pen to the hearts.
For the image I stamped him onto some Kraft card Using Simon’s Barely Beige ink and then coloured him using my Spectrum Noir Colourblend Pencils.
 To add some dimension I die cut a heart and adhered it to the cup and added some glossy accents. 
I loved creating this card and love the sweet image. 

So now it’s YOUR turn.
