Simon Says: Anything Goes featuring Spellbinders

Hello crafty friends it's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

This week Simon Says: Anything Goes and we are featuring always amazing Spellbinders products - it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them! 


I ADORE this Gnome die set by Spellbinders, I adapted a "Christmas" die set for this fun St-Patrick's Day inspired card. I didn't get a chance to use this set for the holidays and I just had to make this Gnome the star of this card, lol! I die cut all of my elements and glued the car together. I also die cut my Slimline shamrock die by Whimsy Stamps for my Shamrock "waterfall".

I coloured my Gnome parts and glued him to the back. I took my panel and ink blended my Altenew stencil then stamped the remainder of the rainbow "borders".


I glued my car and gnome with foam tape and added my shamrocks to the panel with a mix of glue and foam tape. I then die cut and glued my Lucky die and stamped my older Mama Elephant sentiment on the bottom of the panel! I am so happy with the way it turned out, St-Patrick's Day is my favourite day of the year!

Simon Says: Beautiful Blooms!

Hello crafty friends it's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

This week Simon Says: Beautiful Blooms and we are featuring Paper Rose Studio products - it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!


Such fun to make a spring inspired card! I love these colors they make me so happy :)  I started by trimming my background paper from the Rainbow Twirl 6x6 paper pack. I then die cut my Zen flower from Sugar Crystal glitter paper and my leaves and flower centre from gold card stock.

I felt my bloom needed an anchor so I die cut my background rectangle and glued it to the panel. I then added my bloom and leaves.


I used one of my favourite Simon Says Stamp dies for my sentiment die cut from the same specialty card stock as the flower and leaves and glued it using foam tape.

To finish off, some of my new Trinity Stamps Honey Bubbles.

Simon Says: Fun With Foil!

  Hello crafty friends it's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

This week Simon Says: Fun With Foil and we are featuring always amazing Gina K. Design products - it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!  


I am obsessed with this beautiful layered Gina K. Stencil. I ordered it too late for my Christmas cards but I knew I would use it for Valentine's Day with those hearts on the snowflake. I started by ink blending my two first layers and then added Deco Foil Transfer Gel on the final layer. Once my panel was dry, I used my Mink machine with some red foil. I love the way it turned out, foiling is always so beautiful.


I die cut my Lawn Fawn Love die from both red and black glitter card stock and glued them together offsetting the red. I added the die cut to my panel using foam tape I cut my own comma from one of the red centres and then glued my secondary sentiment by Mama Elephant.

To finish off, some pink candy hearts from my stash.

Simon Says: Love Is In The Air

 Hello crafty friends it's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

This week Simon Says: Love Is In The Air and we are featuring always amazing Simon Says Stamp exclusive brand products - it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!  


I used some of my favourite Simon Says Stamp Valentine's products for my projects today. I knew I wanted to use this Wreath of Love so I die cut that and did a mix of ink blending and COPIC colouring on my wreath and set it aside.  I decided to use this amazing crystal distortion 3D Embossing folder for my background panel.

I added my heart to the panel using foam tape and then decided on this Simple Valentine's Day die set as my sentiment. To finish off, some clay hearts from my stash.


These tags were so fun to make, I give my loved ones Valentine's Day gifts from my dogs so these will be used with love from Mozzie and CJ, lol! They were so easy to put together, I die cut my Love Paws using Neena Solar White (to back my felt) and felt from my stash. I glued all of my elements together and die cut the Love You from the Heart Animals dies added it to the centres.

To finish off, I added hearts from my stash, punched a hole and added twine!

Simon Says: Anything Goes featuring Mama Elephant!

Hello crafty friends it's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

This week Simon Says: Anything Goes and we are featuring always amazing Mama Elephant products - it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!  


This Just Hi die was my starting point, I just love the scale. It currently is not in stock at Simon Says Stamp but will hopefully be restocked soon. I then decided that I need to use my new Simon Says Stamp Whirl Diamond Plate A2 die with the large Hi.

I decided on my color palette and trimmed my background panel and die cut my cover plate and added it to using foam tape. I then added gold splatters and set them aside to dry.  


I die cut my Hi die from gold cardstock and then decided to add these beautiful tulips by Honey Bee Stamps.

Once my panel was dry, I added my larger tulip along with the Hi and then the smaller Tulip. I stamped and die cut my secondary sentiment and added it to the panel. To finish off, some of my Pink Fresh Champagne drops!

Simon Says: Add Some Texture

Hello crafty friends it's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

This week Simon Says: Add Some Texture and we are featuring always amazing Tim Holtz products - it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!  


I had fun making this card using my new Floral Wreath die By Tim Holtz. I started by spraying some Watercolor card stock panels with Distress Mica Spray in various colors.  One they were dry, I die cut my wreath and florals from the panels giving my die cuts this amazing shine.

I trimmed another watercolor panel to 4 x 5.25 and added some flecks of Distress Paint to my background panel. Once that was dry, I glued my wreath and flowers using a mix of foam tape and glue.


I die cut my Spellbinders hello sentiment, embossed my friend sentiment on a small tag and added them to the panel. To finish off, a few clear gems on the flower centres.

Simon Says: Let's Have Some Fun!

Hello crafty friends it's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

This week Simon Says: Let's Have Some Fun and we are featuring super fun Riley & Company products - it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!   


I simply love the Riley & Company sentiments, they are so fun. I decided on a more polite one for today's challenge, lol! I paired it with a fantastic Spellbinder's die set that I never got the chance to use for the holidays. I do love that they offer extra accessories in the set and makes it fun to use year-round.

I die cut my cups from three different purple card stocks and did some ink blending and stamped my sentiment on the first cup and set them aside.


I ink blended my background panel and then glued my cups to the top using a mix a glue and foam tape. I die cut various hearts from glitter card stock and glued them to the cup and I finished off with some purple clear drops.
