Pure Sunshine with Simon Says Stamp...

have a great day

I hope you've had or are having a wonderful weekend. Mine has been full of sunshine both outdoors and indoors. Confused? Well Simon Says Stamp have just released their new collection: Pure Sunshine. I can't quite believe it, but I was lucky enough to score some pure sunshine from SSS in the mail inviting me to join in the release fun. A total surprise! So pure sunshine has been inside at my desk as I've been busy with the fabulous Scribble Flowers stamp set and coordinating Scribble Flowers die set. 

Today's creations focus on the die set. I can't get over how versatile those shapes are and I always love to get more bang for my buck by being able to use dies alone without the stamp set. So first up is a simple card that was inspired by the famous art piece by Wassily Kandinsky - Colour Study: Squares and Concentric Circles (1913).

Now it's loosely based on this concept as I omitted the squares and changed the colour but you get the idea, right? :)

So after these dies reminded me of such a iconic piece of art work I then got thinking to food. It doesn't take much for me to think of food but these dies totally had me thinking of eggs and bacon.

we belong together

Hee hee! Yup, scribble flowers transform into eggs and bacon before your very eyes! The egg was easy-peasy and create and the bacon was created by colouring some stems with Promarkers and gluing them together.

I added a couple of details with the help of Glossy Accents for a shiny yolk and my clear Wink of Stella pen for some sizzling, shining fat on my bacon. Yummy! :)

And after creating this card, I simply had to stop to eat - ha!

I have more creations to share later that use the beautiful Scribble Flowers stamp set but I'll have to share them later: I'm getting hungry again! ;)

Thank you so much for stopping by here today. Every single visit/comment is truly appreciated! :)
