Guest design for SSS flickr challenge

Hi there, Today I am guest designing at Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge. I love the challenge and often make it point to participate in their challenges. Thank you, Barb for giving this opportunity you are so sweet.
This week's theme is Sparkle and Shine and here is my take on it I used diagonal stripe stencil and gold texture paste for the background. Layered you diecut word and added a few hearts around "you" word. To add a little on hearts I added glossy accent to them
For my second card, I used Basic stripes stamp set and distress ink for the background. Also sprayed pearlized water to add the shine. Fussy cut the flowers and colored them with zig clean real brush watercolor pens. To finish my card I added a few clear sequins from Pretty pink posh.

All the dies and stamps I used on these cards are from Simon Says stamp.

Playing with one of my favorite stamp set Essentials by Ellen Magnolia stamp set. I love this huge flower and when I use this on my cards I end up using only this flower and nothing else as you can see in this card. I picked up the color inspiration from the current Pinsight challenge. Used Gansai tambi watercolors and versafine black ink for the flower. Splattered black water color using a thin brush and to complete my card I added Pretty pink posh clear sequins.

Found the perfect stabilizer/fleece and interfacing combination

After a lot of trials and errors finally found the perfect combination of the stabilizer/fleece and interfacing for making a tote bag. The size of this bag approximately 13 *11 inches.  I used cotton fabric for both outside and inside lining (any quilting cotton fabric will do). For the outer fabric I used fusible fleece Pellon 987F and for the lining I used fusible interfacing SF101. These both together add a lot sturdiness to this size bag  and also it give a professional look and feel to it. But this combination may not work for the bigger size bags

Inside of the bag
Made another one in similar fashion
Happy sewing!!
