Forever and Always!

Good Morning from Down Under. Hope you are enjoying your day or evening!

I have another card using Simon Says Stamp June card kit Blissful!

This time I used the gorgeous pattern paper with the floral image from the stamp set in the card kit.

I white heat embossed the image from the stamp set on the watercolour paper also from the kit. Coloured the image using the watercolours that came in the kit. Once dry, I hand cut the image out using scissors. On the card front, I trimmed the black and white striped paper paper from the kit and adhered on the card front. Then I adhered the cut out flower and leaves cluster. To anchor the cluster I added a strip of gold glitter tape. The sentiment is gold heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock and adhered using foam adhesives. No embellishments needed! Love the contrast between the bold striped background and the soft colouring on the florals.

Now this card kit is sold out. You can subscribe to the card kit at Simon Says Stamp store. If you are interested in the Blissful stamp set only, the set is available for purchase separately also at the Simon Says Stamp Store.

Thanks for stopping by.

Taylored Expressions June Release Day #2 sneak peeks

Hey everyone. Welcome again. I am so glad many of you enjoyed my day #1 sneak peek projects. Today I am showcasing two more new product. The first one is called Tropical Trio stamp and die combo.

How cute are these birds in this set? Great to colour. I love this set. And this set coordinates well with tropical Blooms cutting plate and Build a Scene: Tropical dies. Both of these dies are new products and my project below features them as well.

Love how the Tropical Blooms cutting plate adds texture on the background. I coloured the images from the stamp set, die cut using the coordinating dies. I also used TE Granny Smith, Peapod, Sweet Basil, Lollipop and Lemon Meringue cardstocks to die cut the Build a Scene: Tropical dies. The stitched circle die houses the birds and leaves. The sentiment on the pink strip picks up the pinks from the flower and birds and ties them together. Some shimmer and glossy accent adds interest to the card.

These set of stamp and die collection is a must have in your collection. Adds so much colour to your cards.

All the supplies to make this card are listed below.

The second products I am showcasing today is another summer themed die called Little Bits Crustaceans.
I combined these Crustaceans die with a few Build  A Scene dies both old and new to make my scenic card.
So I combined these cute Little Bits: Crustaceans dies with Build a Scene: Rolling Clouds, Rolling Waves, Rolling Hills, Tropical and Roly Poly Fish dies. This card was fun to make. Lots of die cutting and putting together a cool tropical beach scene.
I used white pen to add highlight to the die cuts and glossy accents to the eyes of the fishes, crustaceans and coconut. The sentiment is from Seas the Day stamp set. I used MISTI to stamp the sentiment and get clean crisp image.

Taylored Expressions June Release Day #1

Hey there, Welcome back! This is my second post for the day. Here is my first post.

Today is day #1 sneak peek of Taylored Expressions June release. This month’s release is jam packed with nautical and summer themed goodies. I am showcasing two new products today. The first one is called Little Bits: Helm.

This die is one of a few nautical themed dies in this release. I combined this die with On the Track: Basics die to make a fun interactive card.

I also used the new background stamp called Striped. I used Lemon Meringue TE dye ink to stamp the striped background. I die cut the background panel using the largest of the Stitched Rectangle Stacklet die. Then I ran the circular On the Right Track Basics die to die cut the track element on the card.

The helm die cut is cut out of Blue Corn and Lemon Meringue cardstock and assembled. I  used a penny to make my slider for the helm to slide on the circular track. But Taylored Expressions also have sliders available. I used MISTI to stamped the sentiment on the centre of the circular track and the bigger sentiment on a strip of white cardstock, trimmed and adhered using foam adhesives. To add interest I brushed shimmer on the helm using wink of stella clear shimmer pen.

Card Supplies:

 The second new product I am showcasing today is called Sitting Pretty: Nautical Accessories.

These are nautical themed die that coordinate with Sitting Pretty series. So they can be used to decorate a mantle using By the Fireside die or just a wall using Sitting Pretty and Sitting Pretty Accessories dies. I just wanted to highlight the nautical dies and so I used them on their own to make my card.

I die cut a PotatoChip panel using the dies randomly. I used the negative panel  and kept the positive die cuts for use later. Then I also die cut two scrap piece of Cookie Monster and Sprinkles cardstock with the same dies. I adhered the negative Potato Chip panel on to a sticker sheet and inlaid the Cookie Monster and Spinkles die cuts into its places. I love the two shades of blue die cuts on the yellow cardstock panel. For the sentiment, I die cut a Cookie Monster cardstock using one of the Build a Scene: Rolling Waves die and stamped the sentiment from Seas the Day stamp set. I adhered this piece on the bottom of the card front using foam adhesives. I also embellished the sentiment panel with anchor die cuts, glossy accents and some sequins.
