Simon Says Stamp Luck and Hugs Cards…

Hi everyone!  Simon Says Stamp sent me this stamp set to play with for their newest release ‘Sunny Days Ahead’!  I’m behind but working on catching up! I made two cards to share so be sure to scroll down for the second… 🙂

This set has a ton of images and sentiments! I stamped several in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, die cut them out and colored them with Copic Sketch Markers.

I used a landscape A2 size white cardbase and stamped one of the border images directly on the base using the MISTI.

After coloring, using Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue, I adhered the flowers directly to the cardbase.  HUGS is adhered with foam mounting tape overlapping a little bit of the flowers.

A card to cheer I hope!

Next card will be a congrats graduation card…

I went clean and simple here…you know I love this style! hehe  I stamped and gold heat embossed good luck from the set, then die cut, popped it up with black mounting squares on a Taylored Expressions Oreo cardstock A2 size cardbase.  I stamped the little sentiment on white cardstock, trimmed it and layered it over the top with mounting foam on the left end and liquid glue on the right end.

This could work for so many occasions!  Such a fun set…some of the other sentiments… “Can’t wait to see you soar”, “You’re going to be Amazing”, “You’re going to rock this” and so many more!

I used Ranger Detail Gold embossing powder or maybe it’s called super fine.

Thank you so much for clicking over to see my post today!  A new release is coming soon so be watching!

My Favorite Things All Star High Top Birthday Card…

Hi everyone!  Still catching up with birthday cards!  This one was for our granddaughter Lilli!  I couldn’t make it exactly like her shoes but I caught one of the patterns anyway!  So cute!

Then the sweet daisies from Memory Box. Die cut in white and colored with Copics.

The paper I used for the shoes is an old pattern… really dates me… I think it was the first pattern paper company, Paper Patch…1995 ish!  lol

Happy Birthday is from a Taylored Expressions Bold Brushstrokes stamp set that I use a lot for the teen ages.  On the inside it says ‘you are totally awesome’ from the same set.

The detail in the High Top die is wonderful!  The eyelets look real!  So glad they brought this die back.  I was able to snag an old set but now everyone can get it!

Thanks for clicking over today!  Hope you enjoyed this cute card!

Waffleflower Tumble On Spinner Card…

Today I’m sharing one of the birthday cards I made for our oldest granddaughter Atalyssa, aka Attie.  She is an amazing gymnast so I had to use this new at the time Tumble on set from Waffleflower.  Sooo fun!

This party was for five of our grandkids and Lizzie, who’s birthday is the day before Attie’s planned a Masquerade party.  It was so much crazy fun!  😀

Here’s Attie making her card spin…

Fortunately she was able to get a few competitions in this year and we’re so proud of her!  All around 2nd place at this one.  YAY Attie! (she’s the girl that looks like she’s behind the number one block)

Here’s the card sliding by itself.  There was a gal on Instagram that shared her card for Waffleflower and I basically copied her.

I stamped, die cut, colored and paper pieced her leo with black glitter cardstock.

I gave her a wood floor and brick wall because of the gym she goes to.

Thanks for stopping by to see this cutie in action!

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!

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! ❤
