Just Like Buses


So I finally sat down to use the June Simon Says Stamps kit unlike last time it didn't land in the bin.(Whoops what I meant was the last card I tried to make my post sounded likeI threw the kit in the bin). I've used the fabulous Happy and Smile stamp set  which comes with the kit but you can buy separately and this red stripe card was also in the kit. I do have an issue actually cutting the paper and this is the only one a bit of another I managed to cut. 
The sketch is CAS(E) this sketch  that was launch yesterday, I decided to use the stamps then found the banners in the Simon Says Stamps Baby Party Animals which I paper pieced along with the parcels.

I've added the sketch because I'm still smiling and patting myself on my back at how clever I was making the above card, little things!


This card I first used the Simon Says Stamp Diagonal Stripes to make the blue background. Then I got out the Stitched rectangles to make the centre. The flowers I had left over from a Pocket Page Project thought it would be a shame to waste them they are Simon Says Stamps Flowers on My Mind stamp set. Of course I had to use the fabulous Smile circle die that came with the June Kit. I actually made something very similar for my Pocket Page apart from the birthday sentiment, I can see this die being used a lot.



This is sketch SC542 from Splitcoast Stampers and I thought I would give it a go I still had another background made for a card then didn't use with the same stamp that make my blue diagonal stripes. There was no way I was cutting 6 inch sheets of pretty card to make my fishtail banners so I used the washi tape again came with the kit. I layered on card then made my banners in different sizes. Then of course had to use the die again.

Three real beauties Debby and you are obviously on a roll! I love the diagonal stripes and you followed the sketch perfectly for the first and I adore the flowers with the super sentiment die and then the cleverly designed use of the washi tape and the die again on the last. x

I really like how you used the smile die to make a positive and negative and put them together. Creative :)
