Simply Design Too

Hi everyone! Today is a new challenge day at Simply create too! The theme is white, Black and another color, and I decided to make a card with layering dies and gold foil.    I created a window card.  I used one of my 3 heart layering dies to create a window on the top flap of my Card. I used two of them to die cut the bottom layer from black cardstock and the top layer from Thermoweb toner paper, which I foiled with Couture creations foil. I closed my card and glued the two hearts stacked together inside the... [Lire la suite]

Simply create Too challenge - use pattern paper

Hello Mixed Media lovers! Today is the start of new challenge at Simply Create Too! This month, we have an optional twist: use pattern paper. Therefore, I got my favorite paper from the AB Studio collection "Be gentle" and created this lovely shaker from the packaging of a Finnabair wax. I also spread some texture paste through one of my favorite stencil, the bouquet of rose by Simon Says Stamp. For the shaker itself I created a mix of sequins, butterfly filigree (they were from an old earring which I disassembled), buttons,... [Lire la suite]

Dear Mixed Media lovers,   Today is the day to share with you my last creation for this month Simply Create Too challenge : we had to make a shaker card.

So I asked If I could make something else instead of a card. And I could. So here it comes ! I have been inspired a lot by the song "Part of your world" from the movie the little mermaid.I wanted to make something mermaidy and that... [Lire la suite]
