You Are Loved – stamped and colored card

Hi guys, I am hoping you all are staying safe. Not panicking. Acting with hope, strength and grace. Yes, there is a lot of chaos and uncertainty right now in the world, but we crafters have a way to find and spread sunshine wherever we go. We have a way of making people feel that they belong, that they are not alone and that they are loved. Let’s use that superpower because this is the time when the world needs it most.

Simon Says Stamp | August 2018 card kit – Mandy’s Flowers – Card idea 3

Hi friends, I have a shaped card today using Mandy’s Flowers stamp set. I used Hero Arts infinity circle dies to create a circle shape out of white cardstock.

SSSCK Jan2018 - 2

Hello friends, I have two cards to share with you today. Both are similar – both use some scraps leftover from My Favorite Things tag builder dies project, and both use supplies from Simon Says Stamp Jan 2018 card kit. The tiny square frames you see here are leftovers from MFT Tag Builder dies that I used in another project. These got buried in my stash for a long time.
