Use More Than One Die Or Punch! - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
Another week has flown by & I haven't had much time in my favourite room to play, but I am now starting a run of 4 days off so hope to spend some time creating :)


It's Wednesday which means -
 at

USE MORE THAN ONE DIE OR PUNCH!
 this week the design team are featuring some fabulous

Memory Box logo

Today's card features Memory Box Puffy Cloud dies & the very pretty Honey Blossom die.
This card turned out nothing like I intended but my shoulder was giving me hell on the one day off I had to make my DT card, so I had to go for a CAS version. 

I die cut the pretty Honey Blossom die twice and then coloured the flowers on one of the die cuts with my copics & fussy cut them & layered them over the flowers on the other die cut. 
I wanted to add a little more dimension but not quite as high as my foam pads would create so I also die cut the cute puffy clouds twice, and then embossed one set using a Snowfall embossing folder and layered them with the embossed clouds underneath.
The lovely sentiment is from the SSS Hand Lettered Encouragement stamp set & I also added a cute little punched butterfly from Tim Holtz small Butterfly punch

 The copic colours I've used are - 
R81, RV000, RV0000

My little Etsy shop has now been updated :)

I have a new camera & am slightly confused with all the buttons & settings so I am going to try and get to grips with that this week! I'm not very patient with learning new technology but thinking back I almost deleted my blog after a week of not being able to work out how to do everything, so I AM going to persevere!

That's me finished for today, thanks for stopping by
