Simon Says: Lots of Layers

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


This week Simon Says: Lots of Layers and we are featuring Penny Black 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 started by die cutting my Deckle Edge panels by Honey Bee using Neena 80 lbs to have a lighter weight card due to the layering.

I lined up the medium sized panel in my Misti, then centred my small panel and added a little tape runner to the back of the small panel to keep it secure in my Misti.


I stamped my flower and remove the small panel, then stamped my flower again on the medium for clean lines. I stamped the butterfly and coloured both in with my COPIC markers.

I layered my panels on the card base and used fun foam for the middle and smaller layer.


I chose this super fun newer Simon Says Stamp Scripty Hugs die and die cut it with some Harvest Gold card stock and fun foam for more dimension. To finish off, some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins.

Simon Says: Sparkle & Shine

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


This week Simon Says: Sparkle & Shine and we are featuring always amazing Gina K. 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 enjoy a good tone on tone card so I started by die cutting my Mermaid Card Stock panel and ink blending some Peacock Feathers Distress Ink from the outside to the centre for added dimension. I waited for that to dry and then added my Turquoise Sea Glitter Gel with my Sun Spots Stencil. Set that aside to dry and die cut my backing panel.


I die cut my Birthday and Shadow dies from Neena and Tonic Black Glitter Card Stock. I chose a solid Simon Says Stamp Happy stamp and white embossed it.

Once my panel was dry, I added it to my card base with fun foam. I used a mix of foam tape and glue for my sentiments.


To finish off, I used these Pinkfresh Studio Silver Pearls (I love these pearls) and a Gina K. clay heart (Rainbow Hearts) for the "i".

STAMPtember® Blog Party!

 Happy Thursday crafty friends! Today we are celebrating STAMPtember® with a blog party!!!


This new release is AMAZING!!! I can't wait to see what September brings in terms of product collaboration :)


This card is my end of summer card, that is what I based my color selection on for my Etched Primrose Blooms from the new release.

I die cut my blooms and colored them with my COPIC markers and set them aside.


I chose matching inks and my Simon Says Stamp Mega Wrap Stripes stencil with a negative oval mask and ink blended my background.

I line up my blooms and felt I needed a leafy feel so I die cut my Simple Stem from Neena card stock.


I then decided on this Bold Hello die and die cut it from black glitter card stock and black fun foam. I placed all of my elements to the panel with a mix of glue and foam tape.

To finish off, I added some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins. Enjoy the blog party, so MUCH inspiration for STAMPtember!

Simon Says: Stamp It for STAMPtember!!!

 Hello crafty friends it's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and it's the first day of STAMPtember!!! Woot!

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



I made two projects for this weeks theme using the new Painted Leaves Stamp Set that is part of the amazing new STAMPtember release!

For my first card, I did some rainbow stamping on my panel. I really love bright colours!


I chose the You Shine die as my sentiment from an older release and the Eucalyptus Dies (one of my all-time favourites) to frame the sentiment.


For my second card, I decided on a fall like color scheme and tone on tone stamping. I added gold embossing for the centres and decided to paint the surround with some Fine-Tec paints.


My sentiment on this one is from the painted leaves stamp set and to finish off I added some gold Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

 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 My Favorite Things products - it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!

I love Stitched anything with dies so these MFT flowers are always such fun to play with. I die cut my flowers and leaves first then chose inks in similar colors for my stencilling. I added some embossing to all sides of my panel for added dimension. 


I used the Pink Fresh Plaid stencil and used selective stencilling. I lined up my flowers and leaves and added some with foam tape and some glued to the surface.

I die cut my You Shine sentiment and added it also using foam tape to the panel.


To finish off, I added sequins in matching colors from my stash!

Simon Says: Add a Sentiment

 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 a Sentiment and we are featuring Clearly Besotted 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 this stamp set by Clearly Besotted! These birds are the sweetest! I started by stamping and colouring my Birds from the Some Birdie Loves You stamp set with my COPIC markers.

I then took one of my MFT Cloud stencils and added my clouds using Salvaged Patina Distress Inks. I didn't mask my birds, it was light ink blending and the birds were easy to avoid.


I die cut my panel using a Lawn Fawn stitched border die and cut the excess off. I trimmed a piece of this amazing Honey Bee pastel pattern paper and added it to my card base.

I then added my panel with fun foam to the card base.  I white embossed my sentiment from the same stamp set and die cut it with a banner die.  I chose the small Honey Bee Friends Buzzword dies and then added them both to the panel.


To finish off, I added some White gel pen detail and some clay hearts by Buttons Galore!
