Some Fancy Pants cards

Hello Friends! :)  I have two cards to share today, I made these using lots of Fancy Pants Designs product,  and a couple different dies.  

I kept the general layout of them the same, but made one more feminine, and one more masculine.  In fact it's for my new nephew due in Nov.  He will live on a farm where there are 8 other kids, so I thought the "welcome to the circus" was truly appropriate! ;)  lol


This angle shows all the different textures on the card.  I just love using corrugated card stock on my projects, and it worked perfectly with the tag die from Lawn Fawn.


How darling is that bow button??  Seriously, I love love love it! :)



Another fun detail that you might have missed is the Paper Smooches dies I used on the bottoms of the cards.  I love those tiny circles, and faux stitching.  So much fun, and a great way to really make your cards a little more unique.

Here are the supplies I used as available from Simon Says Stamp! :)

Happy for you..

I know, I know, it's been awhile hasn't it?  :)  Things over here have been crazy to say the least.  Our summer has been a blur of visitors, kids leaving to see their Grandparents, a new fur baby, and so much more.  There has also been stress, Fibro flares, and anxiety.  I really struggle with all the fun sides that come with my Fibromyalgia.  Maybe one day I'll share all the gory details, but I'm not sure anyone would want to read about that anyways, so perhaps not!  ;)

I made this card for the October Afternoon Blog, and If you want to read more about the card, and see my inspiration picture, than click here!

You & Me

Hey guys!

Today I'm sharing a card I made for the October Afternoon blog a bit ago.  I shared how I do a faux letterpress look with embossing folders.

Here is the card, and if you want to see the easy tutorial, just head over to the OA blog here!



And of course here are the supplies I used to make this card :)

Just a few months early...

Sooo.. Yes, I felt the desire to make some Halloween cards in July, so I went with it! LOL.

I was organizing my room and came across all my Pebbles Halloween supplies and saw my Simon Says Stamp "Happy" die on my desk, and decided to put them to use.  I hope that's okay with you guys. ;)

My favourite part of the first card is the little ticket stubs with die cut stars on them.  The tiny stars are from Lawn Fawn and the ticket die is a bit of an older one by My Favorite Things.  I also used my new border dies by Paper Smooches for the die cut ticking marks around the edge of the white card stock.



I decided I needed to use the negative from the happy die cut, and cut the word out in orange to inlay it in my second card.  Good thing I saved all the little inner pieces!  :)  I still love the look of inlaid die cuts, it's just so clean looking. 



Here are the links to the supplies I used for these cards available at SSS.  The Pebbles supplies are a bit older, and not as readily available.  If they aren't in your stash I highly recommend the new Pebbles Halloween line available here. :)
