Whale Wishes!

 Happy Monday crafty friends! I am over at the LDRS blog this morning sharing this Whale Wishes Slim Line this morning!

I started by die cutting my background and top panel using the new super fun Slim Line Droplet die set and cut my card base to size. Put the panels on the card base and set them aside while I worked on my other elements.

I stamped my whale and fishes both from the Whale Wishes set and coloured them then used the accompanying dies. I added them to my panel with foam tape leaving room for my sentiments. 

I stamped and white embossed my sentiments then added them to the card. To finish off, I added some gel pen detail to my whale! 

Have a great week! Products used listed above :)

Love You/Love you, Too Releases!

Happy Sunday Crafty Friends! Super excited to be joining Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Love You/Love You, Too blog hop! For all the amazing Day 1 project go to the Simon Says Stamp Blog here.


I played with some amazing products from the Love You release and made two slimline cards for the hop today.


For my first project I used the super fun Light Me Up 6 x 8 Stamp Set. I decided to feature the fun little candles in rainbow order. Once I colored them in I decided to do some rainbow stencilling around the candles using the Simon Says Stamp Mega Wrap Stripes Stencil.

I added some glossy accents to the candle bases and a candy heart to each of them. I stamped, embossed and fussy cut my sentiment from the same stamp set using black cardstock. To finish off, I added some Sparkling Clear Sequins.


For my second card, I used the amazing Funky Flowers stencil and in blended some Distress Inks. I then went over my flowers again (offset stencil) and traced the flowers with black marker for added dimension.

I chose the Simon Says Stamp Sending Smiles die cut for my sentiment and added it to my panel. To finish off, I added some Jewels and hearts.

Kitchen Sink Stamps are a new company to me, always love finding new fun stamps to play with!  I started by stamping my snowman with the three different layers using Simon Says Stamp inks and fussy cut my images and set them aside.


I then chose this fantastic Whimsy Stamp paper for my background and die cut it using my LDRS Layered Card Topper dies.  I die cut my Winter sentiment by Simon Says Stamp using some Tim Holtz Metallic cardstock and fun foam.

I also white embossed my secondary hugs sentiment also by Simon Says Stamp on some Navy cardstock. 


I decided to add a snow hill using Sugar Crystal glitter cardstock and then placed all of my elements on the panel and then the cardbase. To finish off, I added some fun snowflakes from my stash and some Tonic Glitter Drops in Sunlit Meadow.

Simon Says: Something New!

Hello crafty friends and Happiest New Year wishes! It's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge! 



This week Simon Says: Something New! We are featuring Hero Arts 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 been on neutral over the last few weeks, a very restful holiday break! We are currently in lockdown again in Qu├ębec, very frustrating but it is what it is...  My crafty mojo has been off, always happens after the Christmas rush of projects. I love Christmas crafting (everything Christmas really) I think it is sort of a mourning period after it's all done lol!!!

 The theme this week is Something New featuring Hero Arts, I chose the Happy Holiday Stamp and Cut which is new to me. I love the script of these stamps and die and in the set are some fun stamps like the one used that looks like a jack. Also new is the amazing Funky Flowers Stencil by Simon Says Stamp.


I started by ink blending Distress Inks on my panel using the stencil and die cut it using my LDRS Layered Card Toppers. Once that was done, I stamped my Jack in a few spots and blended some black dots to fill in the panel.

I die cut the Happy from fun foam and Tonic Black Glitter cardstock lined it up where I wanted to place it and stamped the secondary sentiment then glued the die cut.


To finish off, I added some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins, my favorite :)

You Are an Amazing Person!

Happy Monday crafty friends! I am sharing floral card this morning. Yes, different from holiday themed but I wanted to color and I needed some happy flowers! Always nice to take a break from the mountain of holiday cards we, as crafters create!

I love this bouquet called Crazy for Daisies stamp and the accompanying die set. I felt like some calming coloring and this did the trick!

Once the image was complete, I trimmed my panel to A2 sized and used the die on the floral. I love this die, it cuts certain petals so you can lift them for dimension.


I chose the sentiment from the Encouragement Stack stamp set and used the Sentiment Stack coordinating dies. These stacks are such fun, you stamp the sentiments and die cut them to have 11 sentiments to chose from. Excellent to put them aside and you always have to chose from on another project! Super practical.

To finish off, I added some sequins and some white gel pen detail for added dimension.

I hope you are all have a happy, healthy and restful holiday! Have a great week and Happy New Year!

Simon Says: Sparkle and 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 and Shine! We are featuring Whimsy Stamps 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 am in love with this Comic Book Cover cling stamp by Whimsy Stamps! So much fun and you can interchange your "cartoon" character for the centre of the panel.  

This was actually very simple all it took was stamping and some Copic coloring. I used my stamp platform and stamped the cover, I then used a PostIt note to mask the bottom so that I could stamp my Ninja (MFT).


I took out some primary colored Copic markers and just had some fun :) I added some grey shading to the image and then blended some Smoke Grey ink by Simon Says Stamp to the edges.


Once that was done, I added some Simon Says Stamp Unicorn Confetti to the words "Comics" and "Spectacular" and some Tonic Honey Gold Glitter Drops to the Ninjas "tools".

Simon Says: Christmas Critters!

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



This week Simon Says: Christmas Critters! 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!


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


I do love a good critter card, especially for the holidays! I used the new Snow Much Fun stamp and die set by Mama Elephant.  I started by stamping and coloring my images and used the accompanying dies 

I established the color scheme with the critter accessories and used my Abandoned Coral, Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar Oxide Ink for the background and set it aside to dry.


I die cut my snow hills and sentiments using Tonic specialty paper and I die cut my panel using an LDRS stitched panel die.

I added my snow using the slimline Simon Says Stamp falling snow stencil and some texture paste. Once that was dry, I put all of my elements on the card base.


To finish off I added black and white gel pen detail and a pink pom pom to the snow person's hat!
