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…

Simon Says Stamp A2 Marquee and Stained Glass Bird Card…

Hello! I have a Simon Says Stamp card to share with you using the NEW from the HAPPY AND JOYFUL release, A2 Marquee Die!  Three dies in this set and I love it!  I kept this card pretty CAS but I can see some stitching happening with this set!

I also used the NEW from the last release Stained Glass Bird die and from a release before that, the Fine Textured Leaf die set. I die cut the bird in white three times, keeping the pieces intact, glued them together and then die cut one in blue/green and glued it on top I love all the detail in the leaves and the shapes!

The sentiments ‘hello’  and ‘Happiest of Birthdays to you’ inside are from the Simon Says Stamp Sketched Flowers clear stamp set.  Beautiful sentiments for all occasions!

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!

Simon Says Stamp Memory Box Exclusive Stamp and Die Set…

Hi everyone!  It’s a busy, busy time with tons of new stuff this month at Simon Says Stamp!  I have a card to share today I made with the new Memory Box Exclusive clear stamp set , True Friend.

I stamped the main floral image from the set with Distress Anitque Linen ink and no line colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  Y11, 13, 15, 18 and YG11, 13, 17.  If you haven’t tried no line coloring yet, this would be a great set to start out with! 

Here’s a picture of it just colored and before I cut out the innards. lol

I die cut the brown card panel from the Memory Box Garland Stripes and Dots 6×6 paper pad with Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles.

I die cut the Simon Says Stamp Banner die with a yellow from the Memory Box Sunny Orange 6×6 cardstock pad.

I was surprised how easy it was to color!  It reminded me of coneflowers so that’s what I went with.

Here’s a picture of the set and the coordinating die…

I love it!  I’m going to have to order the die set! It looks like it cuts out the white between the flowers!  I love the sentiments too.

It’s Simon Says Stamp 12th Anniversary of STAMPtember!  There’s a big SSS release and collaborations with different companies all month!  So check in often and order quick because they do go fast!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I love hearing from you!

Simon Says Stamp Make Magic Release Cup of Love Card…

Hi everyone!  I have another mini slimline card to share with you today!  This size is so much fun!

I just received my order with a few of the new products from this release… Cup of Love stamp set and die set and this new slimline size Organic Dots stencil.

I’m not a coffee drinker but lots of family and friends that are!  This should get used!

I simply inked through the stencil with Gathered Twigs Distress ink using the Make-Art Stay-tion that comes with four strong magnets to hold the stencil in place…very helpful!

Then I spattered with black watercolor, dried it and then white watercolor.

To cut the panels I used the new Waffleflower Mini Slim Line die set!  I am going to get the use out of this set… I’ll link it below too.

I stamped, die cut, colored and assembled.  The card ends up 3 ½ x 6 inches.  I used Memento Rich Cocoa stamp pad for the coffee.

I stamped the sentiment with Ranger Archival Coffee ink pad.

I’ll link you up to this new release and the $5 off your next order code is good until the 15th!

Thank you for stopping by!

Simon Says Stamp NEW Holly Jolly Release!

Hi everyone!  I’m here to show you what I did with the new Outline Merry Christmas Background cling stamp from Simon Says Stamp’s new Holly Jolly release.  Check out the new Distress Ink color while you’re there!  

I cut a panel of red cardstock to 4 x 5 ¼ in. and white heat embossed the new stamp on it.

Layered it on black cardstock and then on a white A2 cardbase.

I die cut SSS Big Joy die from white cardstock and adhered it to the panel with foam mounting tape.

Then I die cut the SSS Picture Book Deer from kraft cardstock, the scarf from red, and chest from white.   I edged everything with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and a mini ink blending tool.

His eyes and nose are a black Sakura Glaze Pen. The x’s on the scarf are with a white pen.

I die cut the little holly leaves from the Memory Box Holly Double Arch die.

He’s so cute!  Such Personality!  This background die is fun… lots of possibilities as you’ll see from other cardmakers!

Thank you for stopping by!  I appreciate it!  ❤

Simon Says Stamp Cheer and Joy Release Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends.  I have a fairly simple card to share with you… well, I kept adding things! lol

Today is the new release at Simon Says Stamp… it’s festive and Christmasy for the most part!  I’ll link you up below to what I used.

The new stamp they sent me to show is the background here, Leaves and Berries Cling Mount Stamp.

I gold heat embossed it and then blended on 3 colors of Distress Oxide Ink. Spiced Marmalade, Twisted Citron and Shaded Lilac.  Weird… the Lilac kinda wiped of when I went over it to get the ink off the heat embossed gold. I barely used any lilac though… good thing! haha I spattered with water drops using the Tim Holtz mister water bottle.

Then I just painted in the leaves and berries with the Gansai Tambi watercolors that I still had out on my desk.  Oh, I stamped on Strathmore 400/Best the brown pad of watercolor paper.

I die cut the panel with SSS Stitched Rectangles.

I embossed in Ranger Detail gold, the background and the sentiment.  ‘Thankful for you’ is from the SSS Autumn Greetings clear stamp set.

I used three small circle cuts from the New Memory Box Stylish Frame Trio die set.  I die cut them in TE Premium cardstock, links below, Candy Corn, Granny Smith and Peapod.

I die cut leaves from the cardstocks too using the New poppystamps Autumn Leaf Set.  Then I added some small enamel dots.

And that’s it!

Check out the new release!  I’ll link below in the linkdeli links below, the first one.  I’m not sure the links in my written post work so I’ll try this.

Thank you for stopping by!
