I heart NYC...


Hope you all had a great weekend, I had a fab one at the loft art retreat, more about that later in the week.

My friend Lianne sent me these fab wooden items - 2 sets -


So this week it is Anything Goes over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.

Made sense to get out the embellishments and have a play.

I also wanted to use a new stencil and die by SSS and scrap papers. I settled on the NYC ones.

I used my craft sheet to colour the wooden pieces using distress paints and acrylic paints - as I don't have distress paints in every colour.

The painted pieces look great.

I used the stencil to create a skyline..something tells me this stencil is about to become a hot fave!

I die cut a black piece of card using the SSS hole die and mounted it just below the skyline. I then mounted this onto a piece of yellow cardstock and then added the whole thing to the card blank.

I used a strong glue to adhere the taxi and the I heart NYC to my card.

For a finishing touch I sprayed the entire card with Glamour Mist.

Such a bright and fun card - makes me smile every time I look at it.

Fun way to end a fun weekend.



  1. Wow aren't these just fab wooden embellies! I love the NY card you've made with them, great design! Glad you had a good time, looking forward to hearing more about it, hugs Carole Z X

  2. Oh this is fabulous and I never pay any attention to wooden embellies but your card has made me see them in a different light.
    Thank you for joining us at Simon says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
