Simon Says Stamp May Release – Cherished…

Two cards to share with you today! Simon Says Stamp sent me their new Big Perfect Shapes stamp and die set to create with for this month’s release.

I die cut the hexagon shape in the die set several times and taped them to a piece of black 4.25 x 5.5 inch card-stock. Then I cut that piece using their Stitched Rectangles die.

I die cut the Painted Happy Birthday die from black and white card-stock and layered them up 3 deep.

The bee is one of Memory Box’s dies, Plush Baby Bumble die.  I double cut the body and wings from white and yellow card-stock, the the other pieces are a single layer from black card-stock. The eyes are Nuvo Drops.

A bit of black/white twine, some white dots with a Sharpie and PPP clear sequins and it was done!

Linking up to challenges…

Seize the Birthday – Anything goes – optional something sweet (honey)

Simon Says Stamp Work it Wednesday May 2017 – put a little sunshine on it


My next card uses the square stamp and square die from the sets…

I stamped the squares with Altenew Coral Berry ink and overstamped the floral design from Roses for You stamp set with Altenew Ruby Red ink, then die cut the squares with the square die from the Big Perfect Shapes set .

Wishing is die cut and layered three times and the sentiment heat embossed in white powder on black card-stock and trimmed. Oh man, I forgot to try adding an enamel dot! lol

  9. Love your fun bee birthday card with those cute elements. Thanks for sharing with us at Seize the Birthday.

  10. OMG, that is one FUN bumble bee birthday card! Love his little stinger, even though he’d NEVER use it, I’m sure. Only under extreme duress. Your second card looks so simple and pretty, but only a very creative mind would come up with it. Those are the most difficult cards for many of us.

I love hearing from you! Thank YOU!
