Fab on Video - Simon Says Stamp Let's Connect Release

Hello! Super excited tonight to stop by with my first card using the brand NEW Simon Says Stamp Let's Connect release! I fell in LOVE with the darling stamp set by the same name - Let's Connect! I created a couple cards - but I will start by sharing just one to begin with tonight!


I started off by coloring up that fab large image using Copic markers in warm grays, and several fun pops of color. Then, I trimmed thin strips of white cardstock, and for perfect coordination, colored the strips with the same Copic colors.


I adhered those on a horizontal card base, then popped the main image up with foam adhesive for a bit of dimension. Finished off by stamping the sentiment and the hearts from the set directly on the cardbase.


You can check out the entire release HERE - and it's a good one!


Can't wait to hear what your favorite sets are from the new release!

Happy Birthday Floral Shaker Card - Simon Says Stamp

Good morning! I'm back today with a shaker card I created with some stamps and dies from Simon Says Stamp! Definitely a sparkly pink and girly card on this one!


I started off by creating the floral background stamp using the large rubber Cosmos background stamp and 3 colors of distress oxide inks. I inked up the stamp with the 3 colors of ink, overlapping them slightly, misted it with water, then placed my watercolor paper face down on the stamp, and pressed down all across before lifting it to reveal the pretty background.


Next, I created a shaker window using Basic Rectangles dies and white cardstock, and filling it with sparkly clear Pretty Pink Posh crystals. I love that they are clear so you can still see the background through them, but they add a lovely sparkly filling to my shaker!


Next up, I die cut both layers of the Big Happy Shadow word die - the detail one from glittery pink cardstock, and the shadow layer from white cardstock. I adhered them together, and then over the top of my shaker. Finished off with a tiny supporting sentiment using Tiny Words Birthday and heat embossing it on a thin strip of Slate cardstock, then tucking it through and around the large "happy" word.

Picnic Spread - Simon Says Stamp August 2020 Card Kit

Good morning! I've got one more card to share today created with the August Simon Says Stamp Card Kit - Picnic Parade! What a fun summery feel this kit has! The included Large Hello Sunshine Stamp Set has so many fun graphic images to play with, and is and filled with fabulous sentiments, there is some fabulous pattern paperadorable stickers - not to mention the Cardstock, slimline envelopes, and more!

As soon as I looked at the fun pattern paper in the kit - that red gingham just jumped out at me as perfect to create a tablecloth, and therefore a fun scene with it - so I had to do it!


I started off by layering together the green and blue pattern paper, then trimmed the red at a fun angle to layer over to give the feel of a tablecloth. I then added lots of the fun Mini Icon stickers on the top of the table, popped up with foam adhesive for dimension.


Added a heat embossed sentiment from the Hello Sunshine stamp set, then finished off with some white stitching around the outside with a white gel pen to complete the homespun feel to this card!


What else would you enjoy adding to your picnic table?

Praying for You - Die Cutting and Ink Blending - Simon Says Stamp

Good morning! I'm here today to share a simple card I created with some stamps and dies from Simon Says Stamp, and one of the new Pink and Main MINI Ergonomic Blender brushes that I received recently to try out! I actually ordered a complete set before I even tried this one, because I already knew based on how much I loved the full size one, that I would undoubtedly love these as well. I definitely wasn't disappointed!


I think one of the things in particular I love about the mini size is how well they fit my mini ink cubes. While I have the full size distress oxide inks, I mostly use mini's for my normal distress inks. These brushes are the perfect size to use with those! YAY!


I created an ink blended panel on a white cardbase, masking off the area I wanted to add color to, and mixing two colors of distress ink. I then layered together 3 die cuts using Lotus Frame die, and adhered that over my panel. I also created a frame using two different sizes of Basic Rectangle Dies, and popped that up with foam adhesive around the outside to add another layer of dimension.


The sentiment is from Moments of Grace Stamp set, and was heat embossed on some white cardstock, then I ink blended over the top to custom color it to match my panel. I popped that up with foam adhesive, then finished off with a few white Pretty Pink Posh jewels for some sparkle!

Slimline Ant Card - Simon Says Stamp August 2020 Card Kit

Good morning! Yep - I'm back with another card created with the August Simon Says Stamp Card Kit - Picnic Parade! What a fun summery feel this kit has! The included Large Hello Sunshine Stamp Set has so many fun graphic images to play with, and is and filled with fabulous sentiments, there is some fabulous pattern paper,  adorable stickers - not to mention the Cardstock, slimline envelopes, and more!

Today I created a slimline card to share using some of the darling stickers in the kit, sentiments from the large stamp set, and a bit of pattern paper - all perfectly paired up with one of the slimline envelopes in the kit!



I started off by cutting some small circles from some of the pattern paper, then die cut a couple more from vellum, tore them in half, and attached them together with a little bow of jute twine and a tiny stapler.



I layered a couple of the adorable ants and heart stickers from the Doodlebug Picnic Parade Sprinkles in the Kit (love how dimensional and fun they are!) - and then attached them with foam adhesive to a slimline card base. Finished off with a sprinkling of sentiments from the Hello Sunshine stamp set in the kit, and a couple extra little hearts to accent the two sentiments that are unique on the card.
