♥ Simon Says...Pop It Up! ♥


Hello! Happy Wednesday to you! We are starting a brand new challenge today at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! This week we want you to...POP IT UP!!

The Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Lawn Fawn this week! For my card, I am using the super fun Gift Card Pop-Up Lawn Cuts Die. Such a fun way to give someone a gift card inside of a card.


After cutting out the die and folding on the marks, just adhere over the center crease on the inside of the card. Easy peasy and so cute!


I am also using the Fall Tiny Tags Lawn Cuts as well as the Tiny Tag Sayings Clear Stamp Set by Lawn Fawn. The papers I used are from the Amber Moon 8x8 Collection Kit by Prima. I also used some burlap trim, May Arts Natural Twine and white pearls.


And don't forget, the super sweet and generous Heidi will give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!

And don't forget about all of the fun we have going on all month for STAMPtember®!! Check out the Simon Says Stamp Blog for more details!!


Hope you have a fabulous day!

♥ Sweet and Shabby Baby Cards ♥


Hello there! Stopping in today with some sweet little baby cards I made with the beautiful Spellbinders Graceful Scallops Border Dies by Amazing Paper Grace. Such a wonderful set to work with! I used the scallop die with the eyelet cut-outs to form the bottom edge of the cards.


I formed the next 2 layers with the Scalloped Edge Die.



Next, I used the Flower Eyelets Dies to form a sweet border for the top of the cards.



The sweet papers and embellishments are by Prima and are from the Heaven Sent Line


You can check out all of Becca's Amazing Dies HERE!

Hope you have a great weekend!!

♥ Simon Says...CAS ♥


Hello. We are starting a new challenge today at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog. This week we want to see...CLEAN AND SIMPLE!


The Simon Says DT are showcasing products by CAS-ual Fridays. I am using the BE Clear Stamp Set on my card. This set has so many beautiful sentiments in it all focusing on encouragement and empowerment as well as some sweet butterfly stamps. I stamped the sentiment on a die cut heart from the Simon Says Stamp Wonky Hearts Die Set.


I finished off the card with some May Arts Natural Twine and white pearls.


And don't forget, the super sweet and generous Heidi will give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!

♥ Blessed ♥

There's something about this time of year that makes me think of how blessed I am. Not that I don't think that all year long but there's something about this time of year. Maybe with Fall coming, it makes me think of the Holidays and Thanksgiving but whatever the reason, I know I am blessed. I have the most amazing kids, a loving husband, great family and friends but most importantly, I have Jesus Christ. No matter what, I know he will help me get through whatever trials and tribulations I may come across.


I am also Blessed to be a part of the fabulous Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team. Love working with Becca's dies. Such a treat to create something with them! I made this super sweet Fall card with the Spellbinders Hemstitch Rectangles Dies along with the beautiful Graceful Damask Border Dies. These dies give an ordinary card such elegance.

 
The papers, embellies and flower I used are from the Amber Moon collection by Prima.

Hope you have a Blessed day!
