Black and White

Simon says Stamp latest release is called Fluttering By and if you love butterflies you  will love this release.

I was lucky to receive Centre Cut Star Background, it so reminded me that many years ago and I do mean many of medallion stamps. Where we cut out different layers and this background stamp called out to me to do the same.

I actually only coloured in with a black copic pen the little semi circles border and the second border on the large square. I cut out the middle Star and the middle couple of layers are the same level as the rest of the card. When I come back from swimming I'll add another photo to try and show the layers.

Black and white make very striking cards and love how it turned out and I decided to make a black and white sentiment which is very much on trend ( see I can be trendy) The sentiment is from Simon says Stamp Shine On stamp set embossed with WOW opaque Bright White.

Now if you love to see some gorgeous inspirations there is a Blog Hop today at 12 in the UK or 8 ET in the US of course if you can wait there was a blog hop yesterday information will be on the Simon Says Stamp Blog. It is on the blog where you can inspiration on previous release and there are galleries where you can load your Simon says Stamp card.

Fluttering By Exclusive Collection

Yesterday I went to my Slimming World group, I finally got my 3 stone certificate which I have slowing been chipping away the last couple of years and a bit. Which means I have lost 4 stone altogether when I started my weight loss journey many years ago. Now I have to decide how much more I should lose.

That has quite an impact, a fabulous card.

Well done on your weight loss, 4 stone is a good number to lose, I lost 3, but could do with a stone or 2 more. Good luck in deciding.

I too remember about medallion stamps and cutting out the different layers Debby, and this is so striking in black and white and works really well. Congratulations on losing all that weight too. x
