♥ Made from a soap box ♥

My Mum bought me a beautiful shea butter soap and I thought to myself as I was about to throw the box out to give myself a challenge to use it on a card :)
I cut out different parts of it using my Hero Arts hexagon dies and arranged them until I was happy with the design,  some of hexagons are on 3d foam dots, but can't capture on camera (",)
Using my stitched rectangle mats from Lil' inkers and stitched banner, a sentiment from a Clearly besotted, "spring blooms" set and the kraftcard as base card.
I'm going to give this card to my Mum, and she looooves framing things, so I know this will be off to my local framing studio (Sarah's framing Studio).

Have a lovely day ♥

I was very blessed to have won Stephanie from Clearly Besotted blog candy of this fab new set called "super Dad" and also the matching dies :)   I struggle with making male cards and this set is perfect for not only Father's day but any male theme cards.
I got these Papermania 4" x 4" cards (300gsm) fabulous quality from Cutting Edge Crafts and they are a lovely size to work with :)  I couldn't add my "bling" to this card, so this little wooden star came in very handy

♥ A "splash of colour" ♥

I'm back again ... :)   I just got these Making memories stamps after seeing my friend Mandy use them and "of course" I just had to get a set ... LOL ;)  I'm loving all the splash of colour and water colouring , spray misting etc ....

I used the gorgeous Hero Arts tide pool ink pad for the splash and the sentiment is from Simon says stamp (Kristina Werner) I added these new enameled dots from My Mind's Eye which are FAB-u-lous!!!!!
A strip of washi tape and added the white dash lines which were a tip from the online classes and a nice finishing touch :)
