Something New Challenge Simon Says Stamps



     I can say with great certainty that a person will not be struck down if they cut off an angel's wings and then turn her upside down.
     One of my favorite things to do in card making is to change up a die cut, stamp or other embellishment and turn it into something NEW.   


     That's how I made the blooms and bud for my card. First, I die cut the angel. Then, I made the cuts as you see here. I glued little hearts where the flower meets the stem and used foam tape to adhere the flowers to the card.
     I free cut the stems and added some fancy foliage die cuts. I die cut and embossed the cupcake and added a few sprinkles.
     I was so pleased with this card that I made two more while I had all my supplies out.

     I'm submitting this card to the Something New Wednesday Challenge over at the Simon Says Stamps Blog. There's still plenty of time for you to get your own card in. Come play with us! You can find the rules here: https://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/

                               ********************
     With family visiting, a trip to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary, a few writing assignments, the holidays . . . the list has no end.
     Anyway, I've had quite a long break from my craft room and card making. I began to have withdrawals from lack of ink on my fingers. I should be able to get my usual dose of creativity back in my life now.
     Thanks so much for stopping in today.
     Happy crafting,
    Pamela

Well I never! You are just wonderful, truthfully I have taken the scissors to a die cut out simply because it was too large but you have given me permission to just go for it!! Thanks so much for the eye opener. You have made my whole day!
