May Kit


I've really been lacking a bit of confidence making cards at the moment and I've been sitting on the fabulous Simon Says Stamp May kit for a few days. I love the Congratulations stamp set, I can see myself reaching for the set whenever I make wedding cards.
My first card is using the Freshly Made Sketch but replaced the banners with the leaves cut from the matching paper I used for the mat behind the Simon Says Stamp Artful Flowers. The flowers and sentiment both were gold embossed, it did mean that I had to been careful how I handle the flowers so I used the dies to cut out. The Liquid Peals would behave and kept joining up so I made all the blobs join together slightly so it still had some dimension.


A bit cross with this card because I'm thinking now I would have better off gold embossing the sentiment on the black but this is the sort of mistake I keep making at the moment. I used the Simon Says Stamps Small
Doily set and used all the dies including the waste on the outline heart. I did cut the larger heart twice, once with patterned paper out the kit then cut off the scallops.
The card I had planned to post today I realised I hadn't added the hand on the image, it wouldn't be so bad if I hadn't had hubby crawling all over the floor to find it when I dropped it when I was cutting out, to then forget and clean my desk. So I have to reprint the image and colour the image before adding it so I shall save it for tomorrow.

  2. Debbie both cards are very nice. As soon as I saw your second one I thought I eould like to CASE that. I think it looks brilliant. Dont be too harsh on yourself, your cards are always beautiful but I think sometimes all the pressure of making cards ends up being work rather than pleasure. Enjoy your talent, we do.

  8. Both the cards are beautiful Debby, like Aileen says you are so hard on yourself. I love the flowers on the first one.
    I think the sentiment on the second is perfect where it is! I personally think it may have been a bit harsh on the black.... but what do I know....lol I have no confidence at all with my card making hence my blog not used since Febuary :( I have made cards but not posted them!!! When I see the talent of you all I cringe at mine...lol
    keep inspiring us Debby xxxxxxxxxx

  30. You are too self critical Debbie!! These cards are both stunning and the gold sentiment looks great where it is. It gives a softer effect I think. Hugs, Carol S.xx
