Watercolour Balloon

I'm back with a rainbow water coloured balloon card.

Sue McRae Birthday Balloon

I white embossed Hero Arts Modern Lines stamp on watercolour paper and added oodles of paint and then sprayed everything with some Perfect Pearls for a bit of shimmer. I die cut the balloon from this and added the birthday sentiment (both from dies by Simon Says Stamp) and a few star sequins.

The white piece is embossed with a Stampin Up folder called Decorative Dots. It's a new item in my crafting stash and I just love that the dots are irregular, so fun!

Wishing you a crafty day!

Window Card

I'm back with another birthday card, this time using WPlus9's Embroidered Bouquet set.


I stamped the flower image in red on yellow card stock and coloured a few of the flower with a white pencil crayon and the other flowers with Wink of Stella.


The sentiment from Hero Arts, is black embossed on vellum with the floral panel popped up with foam adhesive. I added some lovely silk ribbon and pearls to finish off the card.

Shaker Birthday

Popping in with a card using Simon Says Stamps Pile of Gifts die.


I got this die because I knew I could make quick, clean and simple shakers with it.  It doesn't matter the age or whether you need a masculine or feminine card, this die does the job.


I used Neenah card stock in linen for a little texture, added a rainbow of sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, stars and beads and the sentiment is silver embossed.

Spring Fever

The Spring Fever challenge has started over at Poppystamps today!

In my part of the world a sure sign that spring is just around the corner is the budding of the tulips. They are one of the first signs of colour after a long and grey winter and that makes me very happy.

Sue McRae PS Spring Fever Apr 2015

For my card I used Distress Inks to colour the Tulip Bunch die cuts as well as the grass and for the stenciled background.

The challenge at Poppystamps lasts all month long so there is plenty of time to play and a random winner will be selected to receive a prize of some fabulous dies.  All you have to do is use at least one Poppystamps product on your project and follow the theme! Super simple!

Please stop by the blog here to enter and to see the inspiring projects by the other design team members.
