In the Pink


edited another photo
I actually had time to play with the Simon Says Stamps January Kit along with the new Valentines release. The first card is actually using the sketch from Splitcoast Stampers SC469 I actually love how it turned out. I class this as a CAS and instead of my more traditional approach this is a bit more abstract although I still had to mat and layer the main mat some things I just can't change.
I've used a paper doily which I had for ages and rarely use the Small Heart Doily die and the little outline die comes with it, the small die is the waste from it.
The sentiment is of course Simon Says Stamps Perfect Love set and I really do love it.
The biggest problem was finding my brad bag that holds all my brads and odds and sods, I knew where it was in my craftroom but I'm not in there now and the only person who would know would be me!!!!!
I was determined to find it and the brad I've had for ages in my stash.


When I order dies I must remember to check out the size you can see the Thanks die is large. I've seen cards with this kind of design so I had a go using the some patterned paper out of the kit. The MFT crochet border die I had already cut out but didn't use. Then I didn't like it much so I place some paper in the other corner only to find I had to cut another border cos I didn't have enough.


Not overly impressed with my photo skills the first card seems too light. I will be back later with the winner of the Favourite Five of 2013.

As soon as I saw the title (PINK), I knew I would love it! And love it, I do. Your folded corner with the little button is the perfect touch.

Viv said...

Just lovely Debby - the folded corner and button fits perfectly!

Two very pretty cards Debby, I love the heart dp and the heart dies. The 'Thanks' is certainly a large sentiment, and it's true that when ordering you don't always get a sense of the scale. I like the way you have set this on the diagonal and the chevron paper works beautifully. x

Two stunning cards Debby.
The first is so soft and delicate and the button brad is perfect.
The second card is equally as beautiful, and I love the brighter zesty colours.
