This week Simon Says: Summer Fun! 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!

Nichol Spohr has done these Tri-Fold cards using Bristol Smooth Cardstock multiple times, I have  done a few of these as well based on her tutorials.  I thought it would be fun to showcase this super fun Buddy and Duck stamp set by Penny Black.

It's an older one, but I still love it!  I started by cutting my cardstock to 5.5 x 12 and scoring at 4 inches on either side.

I stamped my images and I was too lazy to create masks but I find that Bristol is forgiving to either erase small portions with my Tombow Mono Sand Eraser or simply using water or my Zig blender.  

I blended my rainbow clouds and grass using my Distress Inks along with two MFT stencils. Once that was done, I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and coloured in my images.

I added some glossy accents to the balloons and the cupcake, once that was dry I added some white gel pen detail.

To finish off, I added my sentiments both by Simon Says Stamp, some Studio Katia butterfly glitter and some black candy hearts.
