Simon Says Stamp Mood Board

I'm stopping by today with a card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog and this week there's a fall mood board.



I couldn't resist making a leafy card for the challenge.


The Poppystamps Maple Leaf is covered with gilding flakes.

The panel the leaf is adhered to is embossed with a Taylored Expressions Weathered Embossing Folder. I then tapped Versamark along the edges, sprinkled on gold embossing powder and heat set.


The sentiment is from the Neat and Tangled Oak Leaf stamp set and is black heat embossed on vellum and wrapped around the panel.


I finished off by rounding two of the corners on the card base.

Thanks for visiting with me today!

World Card Making Day

Hello everyone, it's been a while since I posted but life sometimes gets a little crazy, right?

I have a card today I made for World Card Making Day.



I finally got a chance to play with the beautiful Emma Stamp from Simon Says Stamp. This is such a pretty and elegant design! I embossed the image in Brass Embossing Powder from Hero Arts onto water colour paper. I spritzed the paper with water and then added Ken Oliver Color Burst in Merlot and let it do its magic. I love all the separation of the different pigments in this colour!

The colours are a little darker than I would like for a wedding card but I didn't want to mess around with after it was dry so I left it as is.

I added a die cut sentiment and one black gem to finish the card.

Rainbow Wishes



Hello crafty friends! I'm popping by today to let you know that Poppystamps has a new challenge starting today called Rainbow Wishes. Everyone loves a rainbow, right?


When I think of rainbows I definitely think of Distress Inks so I pulled out some colours to create a bright inky background. Then I die cut the Stitched Bloom Trio flowers from the background and also die cut them twice from black card stock for each flower so I could adhere the three layers of flower together, two black layers and the inked layer. I then fitted the flowers back into the background like puzzle pieces.


I white heat embossed the sentiment onto a Stitched Tunnel Tag that was cut from white card stock and inked with Distress Candied Apple so it would match the red in the background.

I added a few vellum leaves behind the tags and added a bow to finish off the card.


Thanks so much for stopping by today. The Poppystamps Rainbow Wishes Challenge lasts until the end of June and a random winner will receive a gift certificate from Poppystamps. Stop by the blog here for all the challenge details and to see the other rainbow projects created by the design team.

Have a great day!
