Simon Says: Layer It Up!

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


This week Simon Says: Layer It Up! We are featuring 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 $25 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!                


I love Doodlebug patterned paper so when I saw the theme I thought nothing better than layering super fun papers! I decided to use the amazing Simon Says Stamp Flower Bundle dies and use my flowers as the layers with the amazing patterned paper.

I die cut all of my elements and set time aside.


I die cut my background using one of my super fun Honeybee Stamps Deckle edge dies and lightly ink blended using a Whimsy Stamps Stencil.  I started adding my die cuts with a mix of glue and foam tape.

I chose this Miss You die by Simon Says Stamp and die cut it with both Tonic Gold specialty paper and one of the Doddlebug patterned papers and added it to my panel.


To finish off, I used the Doodlebug Mini Jewels as the flower centres and the clear gems!

So, I am obsessed with Gladys! I had to use her again for this tag, I simply could not help myself, lol!

I started by die cutting and putting her together, then I die cut my gift tag background and stencilled it using a Tim Holtz stencil (listed and linked below). I added Gladys to my tag using foam tape and glue for the legs. 


I then chose my sticker sentiment and added it to a piece of Neena white card stock for more weight and trimmed it and added it using foam tape.

To finish off, some Studio Katia gems!

Simon Says Stamp Yay You Release!

The newest Simon Says Stamp release - Yay You is now live!!!




I always love a Simon Says Stamp release day! I will be sharing a few more cards this week featuring some of the amazing new products!


Today's card features the new Yay You die set. I decided to pair this amazing die set with my Brushed flowers from the Simon Says Stamp May card kit. The kit is still available in limited quantities but you can always buy the components of the kit separately.


I stamped my flowers in rainbow inks and added versa mark and gold embossing to the flower centres and in some white spots on my panel. I am so pleased with the way it turned out, I just love the graphic feel of these flowers.

I die cut my Yay You from both Tonic Harvest Gold and Sugar Crystal specialty card stocks and glued them together.

 

I decided to die cut my panel and add some of the Harvest Gold to the bottom background and then I added my sentiment to the panel using Foam Tape for dimension.

To finish off, some moonstone gems by Little Things by Lucy.

I fell in love with this Floral Flutter Cling Stamp by Stampendous the minute I saw it. I love the scale and the colouring real-estate on this stamp.

I stamped and gold embossed the butterfly to use my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and fussy cut my image and set it aside to work on the background panel.


I used a piece of Lawn Fawn Watercolor 6x6 paper and white embossed the Simon Says Stamp Friendship 6x6 Cling Stamp.

I decided to used the Simon Says Stamp friend die (one of my favorite Simon Says die sets). I die cut the background in Tonic Sugar Crystal Glitter paper and the top die in lavender colored card stock.


I glued my butterfly with foam tape and added my friend die with glue.  I added the secondary sentiment by Lawn Fawn on Black Licorice card stock.

To finish off, these amazing matte gold pearls by Pink Fresh Studio!

Simon Says: Rain or 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: Rain or Shine! We are featuring always super fun Sunny Studio 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 can't wait for summer! I had to chose the shine option for the Challenge this week. As I write this post, we are seeing a rare April snow storm in Montreal... Yes, you read that right, lol.

I started by ink blending the entire background panel with a light hand and then went back over with my MFT stencil with a heavier hand, once I was done I decided to add my favourite Tonic Moonstone glitter paste and set it aside to dry.


I coloured and fussy cut my images and added some black and white gel pen detail.  I die cut my Sunny Studio Sparkle die and white embossed my accompanying sentiments (from the same set linked below).

Once my panel was completely dry, I added my images using a mix of foam tape and glue.


To finish off, some Studio Katia iridescent sequins and I decided that my sun needed a Lawn Fawn happy face, exactly how I feel over summer!

Simon Says Stamp Happy and Joyful Release!

 The new Simon Says Stamp Happy and Joyful release is live! There are some amazing products in this release!


I played with the Thankful Magnolia 6x8 stamp set for my card today :)


I don't usually use yellow but it's the colour I thought of right away when I saw this gorgeous magnolia.

I gold embossed my flower on Bristol smooth card stock so that I could use my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. They are so amazing with this paper, they just glide.


I die cut my panel once I finished colouring my flower and decided that a strip of graphic black and white stripe would give such a nice pop to the yellow flower.

I then chose this super fun older Simon Says Stamp die set and used Tonic black glitter card stock and glued it to my panel.


To finish off, some Studio Katia gems which are subtle but give a nice finish!
