Simon Says: Beautiful Blossoms

  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 Blossoms! We are featuring always Prima Marketing products it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!

Come join in on the fun, you have the chance of winning a $25 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store! 



I have always loved working with the Prima Marketing Confection watercolor paints so I pulled out The Classics and the Tropical collections to paint this Simon Says Stamp Sketched Flowers bouquet. I stamped and gold embossed my bouquet and painted them in with my confections.


Once the bouquet was dry, I added some colored pencil detail to the blooms using my Polychromos pencils.  I then took my LDRS Stitched Card Toppers and die cut the panel using the A2 sized die.

I then die cut my Stitched Friend die by Simon Says Stamp using both Lawn Fawn Black Licorice and Tonic Harvest Gold and glued it to the panel.


I stamped my secondary Love You sentiment from the same set as the Sketched Flowers stamp on top of the image. To finish off, I added some Fashion Gold droplets by Spellbinder.

Had such fun with this spring card! I used some of the new products from the Simon Says Stamp Hello Beautiful release that is live today and some of my favorite Distress products!

I started by inking my clouds using Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass and set it aside to work on my die cuts.


I die cut my bird house and eucalyptus leaves (all by Simon Says Stamp) and ink blended all the pieces for added dimension using Distress Inks (all colors linked below)

I stamped my bird from the new Spring Birds stamp set and used my Copic Markers then fussy cut her out.  


I added all of my elements to the panel and added some white gel pen detail. I embossed my sentiment using white embossing powder on Tim Holtz Metallic card stock and added it using foam tape. To finish off, I added some Butterfly Confetti and some Sparkling Clear Sequins!

Simon Says Stamp Hello Beautiful Release!

 Happy Wednesday crafty friends! The new Simon Says stamp Hello Beautiful release is live! I will be sharing more this week featuring some of the amazing new products!


I did some die cut inlay with some Simon Says Stamp Glitter Paper.


I started by die cutting my slimline panel and die cutting again with the new Spring Blooms Corner die directly on the panel and with a mix of glitter paper. I added some simple scotch tape to the back and added my glitter pieces. 

Once that was done I used my stamp positioner and stamped my beautiful and secondary sentiment.


The sentiment is so bold and should be the star of the show! I added a heart to the "I' and some flower centres on the daisies. To finish off, my favorite Sparkling Clear Sequins!

Simon Says: Favorite Technique!

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



This week Simon Says: Favorite Technique! We are featuring always amazing My Favorite Things products it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!

Come join in on the fun, you have the chance of winning a $25 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store! 


I love a good die cut inlay on a card so that is the technique I am showcasing today using this super fun MFT Hugs Die!

I started by stamping and gold embossing my MFT Fresh Cut Flowers Cling Stamp and took out my Karin Markers and a water brush to color them in and then die cut the hugs directly to the panel.


I mounted the hugs on black fun foam for added dimension. I then die cut my panel with my MFT Stitched Scallop Die. I mounted white fun foam to the back of the panel and then glued the Hugs to the white foam.

I cut a piece of the MFT black and white stripe paper and glued it to the card base then added my panel.


To finish off, I gold embossed the friend sentiment (also by MFT) and added it to the panel. To finish off, I added some Sparkling Clear sequins by Pretty Pink Posh!

Lucky To Have You!

 Happy Monday crafty friends! I am over at LDRS this morning sharing this St-Patrick's Day inspired card featuring the super fun LDRS Carefree Gnomes and accompanying Die Cuts.

I love making St-Patick's Day projects, I am Irish and St-Paddy's is my favorite day of the year because winter is nearly behind us! I started by die cutting my panel using the A2 sized Stitched Card Topper Dies and then stencilling my rainbow clouds using the LDRS Rainy Day Stencil

I stamped my images using the Raven Hybrid Ink and colored them in with my markers. I die cut my images set them aside then die cut some clouds from the Whale Wishes Die Set, I added all of my elements to the panel using a mix of foam tape and glue.

I embossed my sentiment from the same set and added that with foam tape as well. I used white gel pen for added detail on my images and then some bling from my stash! To finish off, I added some twine at the top!

Yeti Valentine Hugs!

Happy Friday crafty friends! Sharing my last Valentine's Day card for this year!


I just received these super fun Whimsey Stamps products and had to play with them! This will also be my parents card, too fun to keep for myself! 

I also received this amazing Simon Says Stamp Red Holographic cardstock, it is gorgeous people! So I started by die cutting my Hearts slimline cover hearts die from Neena Solar White cardstock and trimmed my holographic background panel to size.


I then stamped and colored my Yeti (love HIM!) with my Copic markers and fussy cut him out. I decided to add a vellum heart behind him because there was lots o' red! and put everything together.

I  decided to add some of the cutout hearts from the original slimline die and do some light ink blending with some Picked Raspberry Distress ink and added them to a few of sections.


I white embossed my sentiments on the same hologram cardstock and added them at an angle. To finish off, I added some red candy hearts and some white gel pen detail. I am so happy with the way this turned out.
