Simon Says: Bright Colors Moodboard

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



This week Simon Says: Bright Colors Moodboard! The design team is featuring always super fun Doodlebug 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 $50 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!


This gorgeous mood board was designed by my talented teammate Karin!


Go rainbow or go home is what I call this card! I started by choosing my Sunny Studio paper for the background and that gave me my Copic marker colors for my Doodlebug Unicorns! 


I stamped and coloured them in and once that was complete I added some of the fantastic Simon Says Stamp Unicorn dust on the manes! I love the stuff! I put them aside and die cut my Neena panel with the stitched puffy cloud dies by Lawn Fawn. The center cloud was die cut with a Mama Elephant cloud die.  I added my Lucy's Little Things gems and place my panel on top with two layers of foam tape.


I added my sentiments and some Doodlebug Tiny hearts and a few solid stamps from eh Sunny Studio Sparkle stamp set.

Sunny Studio - Wedding Card

Happy Tuesday! So here is a completely different design for me today, a monochromatic wedding card featuring the gorgeous layering roses by Sunny Studio Stamps!


I decided to break out my grey Altenew Inks for this project with my roses just for fun and I really liked the way they turned out.  I die cut my roses and leaves with the accompanying dies and put them aside to work on the remainder of the card.


I chose Simon Says Smoke cardstock for the background as at complimented the roses beautifully! I also die cut a Neena panel using my Avery Elle Elle-Ments background die.

I placed the background panel and the top die cut in my stamp positioner for sentiment placement. I stamped the Best Wishes using the darkest Altenew grey ink from the four-pack (listed below). I also stamped it again with Versamark to add the sparkle embossing powder


For the secondary sentiment, I used the new Tim Holts Alcohol Ink Sparkle paper and stamped my sentiment using Versafine Onyx black and heat embossed it with the same sparkle embossing powder.

To finish off, I added some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins with some of the White Dream Drops, some white hearts and a pair of wedding rings from my stash!

So, I chose these fantastic Otters by Art impressions for my card! I stamped them first and coloured them in with my Copic markers. I then die cut my banners and glued them on the lower left, once that was dry, I die cut my stitched borders on either side on my panel.


I chose the Simon Says Stamp Friend die and the Simon Says Stamp punny animal sentiments, I thought this was such a nice mix for this card.  I used Tonic Silky Sky specialty paper for the friend sentiment and I white embossed my secondary sentiment on black cardstock.



To finish off, I added some white gel pen detail and some candy hearts!

Simon Says: For a Special Lady!

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



This week Simon Says: For a Special Lady! The design team is featuring Altenew 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 $50 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!



I wanted to use a color palette that I don't use often. Purple is a color that I have always struggled with but it's a color that my Mom has re-discovered, lol. So I decided to escape my comfort zone and went with a mix of purple and turquoise for this card.

I stamped and colored my flower and butterfly first with the BG family of Copics (colors listed below) and fussy cut both images as I do not have the accompanying dies.  I put those aside and started ink blending my panel using the Altenew Halftone Stencil and some Lavender ink.


I decided to stamp the leaves from the Altenew Wallpaper Art set with a darker purple-ish ink and I really liked the way it turned out! I die cut the panel with the frame from the Mama Elephant Cloud Nine dies and glued it to my card base.

I used foam tape for the flower and a mix of a small foam tape piece on the Butterfly wings and glue on the base for added dimension.


I used a sentiment also from the Avery Elle Butterfly set and stamped it on a Simon Says Stamp Brand Exclusive tag die cut from Lavender cardstock I added it with a mix of foam tape and glue to the card panel and added some twine from my stash.

To finish off the card I added some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins and some white gel pen detail to the flower!

Simon Says: Happy Birthday!

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



This week Simon Says: Happy Birthday! The design team is featuring always fabulous Simon Says Stamp brand Exclusives and we are celebrating Simon Says Stamp's 10th birthday, woot!  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 $50 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!


I had such fun with this card, I used Simon and the Birthday numbers for my card today! I masked my number 1 so that I could offset my 0.  I then stamped my birthday hat and masked it to then stamp Simon! I coloured all of my images with my Copic markers.


I took my Altenew stencil with Delicata gold ink and blended that on the background. I then added my hearts and stamped them with Lawn Fawn Lobster ink.

I stamped a series of sentiments from the Number set in the background and gold embossed my happy birthday on Lawn Fawn Black Licorice cardstock.


I decided to add the little winky face in the centre of the 10 and finished off with some white gel pen detail! Happy Birthday Simon Says Stamp!!!

Simon Says: Anything Goes featuring: Concord and 9th

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! The design team is featuring fabulous Concord & 9th products!  It isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!


I decided to go with my all-time favorite Concord & 9th stamp and die set - Dahlia Turnabout. There is just something about this set that makes me happy and when I take it out I always end-up making multiple cards with it. 

I love the color palette on this one, spring happy colors! I used the Dahlia die and inlayed some Lawn Fawn glitter cardstock.


I embossed my sentiment with Simon Says Stamp antique gold powder and put the panel on the card base with a mix of the same glitter paper and some Tonic harvest gold.

I decided to die cut the Concord & 9th butterfly and glued just the body to the panel and finished it off with Tonic pearl drops.


I did the same for this card, only changed out the colors and the Tonic drops!

Mother's Day Flowers with MFT

Happy Tuesday! Hard to go back to work following a four-day weekend! I am sharing a Mother's Day card featuring this beautiful Fresh Cut Flowers cling stamp by My Favorite Things.


I had my Tombow markers out from my last card share and decided to color this gorgeous stamp with some no-line watercoloring and my Dove blender pen.


Once that was complete, I die cut the panel using MFTs Basic Stitch Lines on the sides and cut the panel down.  I added some MFT black and white stripes paper to the lefthand side. I used foam tape to place the colored panel on top.


The sentiments are a mix of Clearly Besotted and Sunny Studio, I liked the mix in fonts.  To finish off the card, I added some clear droplets.
