Simon Says: Card & Matching Envelope

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

This week Simon Says: Card and Matching Envelope and we are 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 $25 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!               


I was so anxious to use my Simon Says Stamp Vintage Garden stamp set and I knew the beautiful florals would look amazing on a matching envelope. I started by white embossing my florals on my panel and ink blending a rainbow. 

I die cut my panel using one of my favourite MFT dies and set it aside to work on my sentiments. I love this Altenew Mega Hello die and die cut it from my favourite black glitter paper for impact.  I paired it with the Tim Holtz sentiment strips that look like typewriting. 


I added my die cuts to the panel, added some iridescent butterflies (look so pretty live). I then stamped my matching flowers to my envelope using three of the same inks as my panel blend.

Simon Says: Little 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: Little Critters and we are featuring always super fun Lawn Fawn 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 a good critter card and these adorable new bats by Lawn Fawn sure don't disappoint! I had so much fun making this slimline card.

I die cut a mask for my moon and placed it on my panel and started ink blending using Distress Inks (listed below) and added some water droplets and Distress paints and set it aside to dry.


I coloured in my stamps using my COPIC markers and used the accompanying die cuts. I decided to use one of my favourite Whimsy Stamps slimline dies for my panel and then I added some of these Lawn Fawn cobwebs, die cut from black Tonic glitter paper.


I added some COPIC colouring to my moon and then added all of my elements to the panel. The spooky sentiment is by Echo Park and has been in my stash forever. To finish off, I stamped a few of the small words from the Fangtastic stamp set, added some white gel pen detail and some Pretty Pink Posh Jewels.

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

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


I just LOVE this Oh, Frank stamp set he was so fun to put together. I started by stamping all of my chosen Frank elements (there are so many fun options in this set) and fussy cut him as I don't have the dies but his lines made it super easy to fussy cut. I then set him aside to work on my background panel.

I used my Simon Says Stamp cloud stencil with Wilted Violet Distress Ink.


I then added Frank using an action wobbler, I mean Frank needs an action wobbler! I then stamped my sentiment from the same stamp set and to finish off, some white gel pen detail and sequins from my stash!

STAMPtember Blog Party!

So happy to be participating in the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember blog party! 


You can use the code above when ordering for a free Pawsitively Everything Tool!


I love making Halloween cards, something so fun about them. I was so happy when I saw the Pumpkin Wafer Die set and decided to use this one for the Blog Party!

I die cut my elements and ink blended some Distress Inks, put my die cuts together and set them aside to dry.


I then used Aged Mahogany Distress Ink and lightly ink blended using my stencil also from Simon Says Stamp. I then added some splatters using Distress Paints and some water and set it aside to dry.


I white embossed my sentiments on a piece of Neena Solar White and added some Aged Mahogany Distress Ink to the background so it would coordinate with my background. I put all of my pieces on the panel using foam tape.

STAMPtember 2022!!!

 Can you believe it's September already! Best thing about September is Simon Says Stamp's STAMPtember!

It is live now, go check out the start of the month-long celebration!


I am featuring the amazing new Sparkling Facets 3D Embossing Folder. I am obsessed with the Simon Says Stamp embossing folders and this one is gorgeous! I chose to pair it with the Poinsettia Ornament, I felt the patterns complimented each other to make a fun Christmas card.


I embossed my panel and then die cut my elements for both the ornament and sentiment using Tonic Glitter paper. I put my ornament together and glued it to the panel.


I put together this Simon Says Stamp Happy Christmas die designed by Kristina Werner (I love this die set) and added it with foam tape. To finish off, some twine from my stash for the ornament and some Spellbinder Fashion Silver pearls.

Simon Says: Anything Goes featuring CZ Designs!

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 CZ Design 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!             


My starting point for this card was the amazing patterned paper from the latest Simon Says Stamp Card Kit. I have been pushing myself to use more patterned paper, like many of you I hoard it...lol!  I don't often use this color scheme either so it was so fun to put this together.


The patterned paper made it easy for me to pair a mix of Tonic specialty card stocks with all of my die cuts. The balloon dies are also Simon Says Stamp once they were die cut I added some Neena solar white card stock to the back for the highlight portion.


I then die cut my CZ Design Happy Birthday dies also from Tonic glitter card stock and added my elements to the panel. I glued it to the card base and finished off with a mix of sequins and Tonic Nuvo and Glitter drops.

Simon Says: Shimmer 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: Shimmer & Shine and we are featuring always amazing Gina K. Designs 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 knew I wanted to feature the amazing Botanical Duo dies by Gina K. on this card and I wanted to die cut them from my favorite Tonic Sugar Crystal glitter card stock. I use this glitter paper on most of my cards. It is beautiful and discreet shimmer and shine! 


I chose to pair them with this beautiful Honey Bee patterned paper that I die cut using the Simon Says Stamp A2 Marquee die set (largest frame die used).  I then decided this Simon Says Stamp Miss You die would fit perfectly in my corner and fit with the more modern feel of the patterned paper.


I added all of my elements to my panel and then to the card base using fun foam for dimension. To finish off, some Studio Katia iridescent sequins!
