SSS-Hey Love

Hey Love! Have you seen the gorgeous new Hey Love release at Simon Says Stamp? Everything is soooo pretty & perfect for sending love all year long!SSS-Hey Love & Heart FoldMy project features the beautiful Hey Love word die along with the Folded Heart die.
SSS-Hey Love & Heart FoldI used some delicious pattern papers from the C’est La Vie 6×6 pack. I’m in love with these fresh, modern patterns. I actually just made a birthday card for my daughter with these papers and she LOVED it! Here’s the card I made for her.Alex's 16thShe said and I quote, “Mom, I think you’ve gotten better over the years.” lolololol….Hey, I’ll take it, folks! I used my Silhouette Cameo to make the “16” & the “alex”…so easy, but the papers make it look so good.
SSS-Hey Love & Heart FoldBut I’m in love with all of the gorgeous handwritten word dies designed by Kristina Werner. She has such a amazing gift!
SSS-Hey Love & Heart FoldThat’s all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great day!

Hello there! Today I have a colorful, geometric project to share with you featuring on of my all-time favorite stamps sets by Altenew: Sohcahtoa.Altenew-SohcahtoaI don’t think I’ll ever tire of creating patterns with triangles. Sohcahtoa has several sizes & patterns of triangles which I layered here using a ton of gorgeous Altenew inks.
Altenew-SohcahtoaI love how the Altenew inks come in sets of four with four shades in each color family. It made this card a breeze to stamp. Using the MISTI helped a lot to get my triangles straight and evenly stamped.
Altenew-SohcahtoaI added an embossed sentiment from the Celebrate stamp set. I thought the clean, modern font paired perfectly with this geometric design.
Altenew-SohcahtoaHere’s a video to show you how I created this card.

Honey Bee-Beautiful Life

Hi there! Today I’m excited to  join Honey Bee Stamps for their 12 Days of Christmas Event. I am featuring the Beautiful Life stamp set along with the coordinating dies.Honey Bee Stamps-Beautiful LifeI embossed several of the heart images in clear onto watercolor cardstock and then blended distress inks in Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade & Squeezed Lemonade. I also flicked some water droplets after the ink blending.
Honey Bee Stamps-Beautiful LifeI stamped the sentiment from Beautiful Life and used the coordinating die to die cut it out and popped it up over a loose bed of thread with foam tape. I die cut a circle window into a piece of vellum and stitched it onto the panel to create a soft frame for my sentiment.
