Add Some Texture & New Fluttering By Release! - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
I have two very different cards with you today, my DT card & a card featuring a new die from Simon Says Stamp's new Fluttering By release which has just been released today.


It's Wednesday which means -

Add Some Texture

As you can see I wanted to show the "softer" side of using Tim Holtz products & have teamed them with some pretty Prima Ashby Heaven Sent 2 Flowers,  & I also added a couple of Prima flowers from other sets that I had in my stash. The sentiment is from Simon's Bouquet Of Love stamp set which I have stamped in Simon's Black pigment ink.

Simon Says Stamp has a brand new release out today called Fluttering By.

I have created a card featuring one of the gorgeous new dies in this release called
 This pretty die can be used to create cards for so many different occasions, weddings, anniversary's, sympathy, birthdays, thank you, thinking of you etc, I just wish I had had more time to create them for today's release.

I have reversed roles of using patterned paper on this card and used some Kaisercraft papers for matting & layering instead of using plain card stock as I normally do. I have used Simon's Woodgrain card stock, a stamp from Simon's Handwritten Greetings stamp set, & added a couple of Tim Holtz punched butterflies & clear gems to finish.




That's me finished for today, I am having a nice lazy day as I'm back at work after having the flu but finding it exhausting & really need my energy to go to a craft show tomorrow :)
