Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, Anything Goes with Gina K Designs…

Hi everyone!  It’s that time of the week!  This is my last post as a guest for Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge this month.  Whew, this year is whizzing by!

This week, we’re using Gina K Designs and the theme is ‘anything goes’!

I stamped Gina K Designs Massive Peony Stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Sketch Markers. I die cut before I colored with the coordinating die.  I also die cut two pieces to glue my colored floral piece to for depth, instead of foam mounting squares or tape.

The background panel is cut 4 x 5.25 inches and randomly stamped with Simon Says Stamp Damask Background stamp and Antique Linen Distress Ink.   I was going for a vintage look.

The sentiment is from the same floral set, heat embossed with Ranger Detail Gold embossing powder on vellum, trimmed and wrapped around the damask stamped background panel.

I adhered to an A2 size metallic gold panel and then to an A2 size cardbase.

I hope you’ll be able to join us and link up your creation for this week’s challenge ‘anything goes’!  We’d love to see Gina K but you can use anything. 

The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously giving away a FABULOUS $50 voucher to shop at the  Simon Says Stamp Store! All you have to do is take out your crafty supplies, make something following this weeks prompt and add a link in the Inlinkz at the bottom of the challenge blog post! You can join 5 times so you could have 5 chances to win! How AWESOME is that!! All winners are chosen randomly, so everyone has an equal chance to win! Woo Hoo!! Good Luck to everyone!

Simon Says Stamp Release, Hoppy Easter Gnome Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends!  I had fun this week stamping up this cute bunny gnome from the NEW Simon Says Stamp ‘Lucky to Know You’ release!

SSS graciously sent me their new Spring Gnome stamp set to play with.  I decided to stamp it a dozen times and cut out pieces to color and piece together to get that fun layered look.  I love how it turned out!

So cute!  I colored all the pieces with Copic Sketch Markers… BG70’s for the clothes, light W’s for the hair,  E90’s for the bunny ears, YG 90’s for the hat and ugh, I can’t remember what pinks I used in the ears!  The nose is regular skin colors.

I used the chisel end of the marker to make the lines on the clothes.

The sentiments are from the same set, inked with versamark and heat embossed with Lawn Fawn White embossing powder.

I used the SSS Stitched Rectangles set to cut the kraft color panel.  Bunny is popped up on the panel with the thin mounting squares.  I used thin mounting squares to raise all the pieces also.

So fun!  I love this set!  Two other super cute gnomes in the set and 3 more sentiments!

A branch die cut three times and trimmed to fit the scene completed the card.  I used a disc. die but I’m linking up some others below that would work fun with this stamp set!

This is an A2 size card.

I’ll link up the release and the products I used below… thanks so much for stopping by!

Wreath Building, You’ve Been On My Mind Card…

Hi everyone! Today is my last post as a ‘fetti friend for Reverse Confetti.  It’s been fun creating with their January release for two months! I hope you’ve enjoyed it. ❤

I decided to use the new Butterfly Wreath stamp and dies set but just the three smaller images to make a wreath using the wreath builder technique and the MISTI.

I love the simplicity of it and that the message is what you see first. It’s not always possible to be with people in person but if you’re like me, we are thinking of them!

I stamped in green ink but just die cut the three little floral images and butterfly. I colored in the flowers and butterfly with Copic Sketch Markers.

For the card base, I ran the new Stitched Scallops cover plate die through the Big Shot with the embossing set up instead of die cutting it.  I really like the soft feel of this look for this card and message.

My other cards I made with these sets and dies are HERE and HERE.

So glad to have you visit today!  Thank you so much for stopping by! ❤

3 Letterboard Cards…

Hi everyone!  Did you see the Splitcoast Stampers recent email talking about Letterboard cards? oh, I keep calling them this but I think the email called them Marque cards. Here’s the tutorial!

My first one is a birthday card for our oldest grandson.  I used an old alphabet die set from Quickutz called Diesel.  The birthday wishes postal circle is from Inkadinkado.

I will link up a bunch of alternative, similar alphabet die sets in my linkdeli collection at the end of the post.  They would all make awesome cards like this too!

This one is ¼ of an inch taller than a regular A2 card.  I mailed it in an A7 envelope.

The little bit of coloring is with Copics.

The next one is the card I made for Tim/husband.  Four family birthdays in January! Two more to go! hehe

This one I used a different alphabet.  It’s Parker from Memory Box. (my link below is to Parker lower case, upper isn’t available anymore)  The little candle is from a Quickutz die set and the heart was on my desk.

I scored lines this time with my scor-pal instead of making ¼ inch strips and foam mounting tape like I did for the others.

Harder to see the scored lines in that picture…

There you can see them again.  This card is A2 size and the cardbase is Cookie Monster cardstock from Taylored Expressions.

Glossy Accents on the candle and heart.

My third cards are thank yous!  I need several right now!  ❤

I really had fun with this card style… but I quit for now because I need to do other stuff! lol

This is Quickutz Diesel alphabet again.  The heart is from Honeybee Stamps.

The red and black cardstocks are from Taylored Expressions also.  The envelopes I made for these is a digital cut from Kerri Bradford.com.  I cut them on the Scan and Cut cm350.   I’ve been experimenting to use it more!  yay!  It’s like a coin envelope style… I should’ve taken a better picture of just the envelopes.  You can find it HERE.

A2 size and I used two Pool notecards from Memory Box for the card bases.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I’ll be back real soon with another Reverse Confetti card, then more Memory Box and poppystamps coming your way! Hope the new year is finding you with time to make.  I can’t believe this month is almost history!  :O

$5 off code for SSS right now is LVEYU842  (good ’til 3/1)

Then there’s a grrreat sale at Taylored Expressions!  You know I love their cardstock and I received the blending brushes for Christmas!!!  Link below and get the brushes, caddy and cleaning tool now while they are 30% off!!!  (hmmm, do I need another set?!) lol Sale today, 9 a.m. CST the 23rd through tomorrow 9 a.m. CST the 24th!  HURRY!  😀
