Simon Says Stamp Arched Greens and SALE!

Back again today with a NEW stamp from the latest Simon Says Stamp release

I received the rubber stamp Arched Greens to create with.  The center Arch section is removable!

I stamped it all in the MISTI on Canson XL watercolor paper with regular Distress inks.  I inked up the stamp and spritzed it and stamped it.  I used two different greens and the new prize ribbon blue.

It needed some flowers so I got out the NEW Birch Press Design Wispy Blooms Contour Layers die set.  I die cut in the same watercolor paper and smooshed the cuts into Worn Lipstick Distress Ink that I’d spritzed with water.

I die cut the center out with the Memory Box Nested Globes die… it was a little short so I had to use the mat to keep it from cutting the bottom straight line, then readjust the die to lengthen the cut. SSS does have a die set that coordinates with this stamp!

The sentiment is a new poppystamps hot foil plate and die set with several sentiments.  I’ll link it below too.

I’m linking to some challenge blogs…

Hello Friend! Memory Box NEW Ruffled Blooms and More Card…

Everyone is all about flowers right now!  It’s almost the most wonderful time of the year! lol 

I started with an A2 card base, I cut the Hello Friend shadow part of the die directly in the card base. Then cut the shadow in white and the outline in NEW Memory Box Glossy Black cardstock.  Love this stuff!   I very very lightly put a little Tombow Mono Multi glue on the top, bottom and side edges and inlaid it into the cardbase.  When you open the card you can see through and between some of the letters.  I like it!

I die cut the NEW Memory Box dies, Ruffled Blooms and Riverbank Large Layered Blooms, from the Memory Box 6×6 Fresh Aqua cardstock pad.

I die cut the New Memory Box Exquisite Leaf Set dies from the Memory Box 6×6 Lush Green cardstock pad.  The leaves in this die set are a must have!  So beautiful and good with all the flower dies!

I wasn’t quite sure where I was headed with this design but I love these colors and I’m really happy with how it turned out!  I will need to use an A6 envelope for presentation though because I left some petals and leaves over the edge a bit.

Pretty simple and all die cuts again! 

Whimsical and you know I always love kraft!  The cardstock I use for kraft cardbases is from Hobby Lobby… their Extra Heavyweight cardstock.

Thank you for stopping by!  Have a good rest of the week and a lovely Spring weekend!  Spring in Iowa means rain. (how come there’s not a let it rain sentiment like let it snow?! haha) So stay dry if you can! ha

Simon Says Stamp Good Luck Charm Release and Copic Sale…

Welcome to my blog today!  I have a card to share with one of the new stamps sets from the NEW Simon Says Stamp Good Luck Charm Release! 

Since it’s February and all about hearts… I went with a heart presentation for this Get Well Card using the NEW Well Wishes stamp set.

I used the ‘feel better soon’ stamp to create a 5 ¼ inch square background by stamping it four times on gray with dark gray ink.

I love how easy it stamped!  I just used an acrylic block and it stamped beautifully!  I stamped it on a Honeybee Stacking Hearts Die die cut in red. Backed it with a Honeybee Scallop Hearts Die cut in white.

‘You are on my heart’ is from the new SSS stamp set also.  I stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with Lawn Fawn white embossing powder on black.

I love how crisp it all looks…and cheery too!

It’s 5 ½ inches square so it will require the extra ounce postage to snail mail.  Worth it!  hehe

 

NOW for What’s on SALE at SSS! I need some refills so I better order!

NEW Memory Box Gentle Blossom Watercolor Floral Card…

Hello Friend! How is your January going?  I woke up to HUGE snowflakes coming down…living in a snowglobe for a few hours!

I don’t have a snow card ready to post though! lol

This flower is a NEW die from Memory Box…isn’t it pretty?  I added three die cuts of the MB Gentle Pine Needle Sprig behind it.

I used MB 6×6 cardstock pads and the gingham is from the MB Christmas Plaid 6×6 pad. Links below. (I don’t see the pattern paper anymore so I linked to a poppystamps stamp that makes a similar pattern)

This card ended up 5 ½ inches square. 

The sentiment is the NEW Memory Box Hello Friend Posh Script die.  I love it!  Love how it cuts out the inner pieces and looks so nice!

It feels like a little bit of Christmas coming into the new year here but I’m sure it could be a beautiful Spring floral card too, for any occasion!

I didn’t use a lot of foam mounting tape.  I glued the pine directly to the card panel, the floral has thin foam mounting tape under the center and the word die is on foam mounting tape. 

Very easy dies to work with!  Could be quick and easy!  I had to walk away for a bit to decide how to bring in the pattern paper and then it hit me to add the pine! It just needed something…I’m thinking there are other dies in the MB collection that would be excellent additions to this flower.

That’s it for now.  I have to get in the groove.  A bunch of birthday cards need to be made before I’m late for all of them instead of just two! ha

Have a great weekend…it looks like someone here will be blowing and plowing and it’s not me! ha

Memory Box Deep Blue Ocean and Bubble Border…

Hi everybody!  Working through the Memory Box release…. thinking of you and I had to use this Vitamin Sea sentiment again!  Many of you know me and I’m a vitamin C user!  hehe

I started by inking a mini slim line panel with Tumbled Glass oxide ink, lightly marked where the circles were with a pencil, then stamped the school of fish stamp from the Deep Blue Ocean stamp set randomly over the larger circles.  Then I stamped the ocean greenery images from the same set in dark greens.

Then I covered the panel with a piece of vellum…like you’re looking through glass…

I inked the top panel with Oxide inks, Salty Ocean and my Peacock Feathers brush without adding more ink. Spattered it with water.

Let it dry, then stamp the sentiments from the set using the MISTI and Ranger Archival Black ink.

I colored and die cut the cute little fishy with Copic markers but then I decided I didn’t like the white around it so I fussy cut it and mounted it on the panel with mounting tape.

On the inside I stamped the Feel Better Soon stamp from the set.

This is a great set… it can go for any occasion with the variety of sentiments!  Birthday, Just Because, Sympathy and get well!

Thanks for stopping by on this beautiful how can it be the end of August day!!!
