Incredible Like You

Hello again, I hope you had a good weekend and a good start of the week. My intention was to blog this yesterday, but what do you know the day ran out with me so here I am a day later. Monday's are always so busy, do you find that? 

Today I am sharing a Birthday Card I made for my lovely friend Alison.

And I turned to the fabulous kit Incredible like You, to help me out. I love, love, love this kit but I needed my card to be a little more special so I choose to beef it up a little to create a larger size. (14.5cm x 14.cm)

The colours in this kit are so pretty, my base is Lovely Lipstick and a layer of Coastal Cabana was added to the edge. I stamped a bit of a background using the coordinating stamp set then I simply cut one of the card bases and adhered to my card base. 

Now, can we please talk a little about this beautiful laser cut top layer? it matches the watercoloured design perfectly. And because of the bold design there really wasn't much more this card needed in order to give it that WOW factor. A few gold splatters with the shimmer paint and a little bow made with the tulle polka dot ribbon was all that it needed.
I hope you enjoyed Ali's card as much as I enjoyed making it.

 Thank you for visiting me and don't forget everything I showcase can be found in my online store.
Much love Monica xx

Be Inspired Blog Hop- Love and Friendship

Hello there,

Our Blog Hop theme, with the Be Inspired Team is Love and Friendship and I combined the two. A love card for a true friend,

I was inspired by a scrapbooking layout I noticed on my Insta scrolling and thought *I can turn that sweet idea into a card * !! And here it is, not a bit of stamping on it *shocked* and I've used more dies that I care to count, however I love having crds like these in my display arsenal that show customers various products so I am not sorry at all :)

I have used the Large Letters framelits combined with the new Be Mine Stitched set from the Spring Catalogue and they are divine, spot that cute scalloped stitched edge too - MUCHO LOVE.

Now, can we please take a moment to admire that cute designer paper? It's the Needlepoint Nook on page 39 of the Spring Summer Catalogue and its drool worthy, I m quite smitten and I loved that I got to use most of the patterns of one card.

Check those close-up details, it has texture, thanks to the Subtle embossing folder and dimension thanks to me fussy cutting those sweet little flowers and mounting them onto dimensional pads for a bit extra oomph.

Thank you so much for joining me today and I hope to see you more regularly now that I am back in business. Big hugs don't forget to hop over to the lovely Maike and check out her beautiful project.
Big hugs Monica xx
