Simon Says Stamp Mini Slimline Windows and MFT Spring Gnomes Card…

Truth – You’re a friend like gnome other!  Cardmakers just click!

I’m using the NEW Simon Says Stamp Mini Slimline Windows die today from the latest release, ‘All The Feels’….very fun to create three little scenes with the NEW My Favorite Things Spring Gnomes Stamp and die sets too!

I die cut the Windows die and backed it with Memory Box NEW Madras Plaid Blue and Violet 6×6 paper pad.  Such gorgeous papers!

The gnome, flowers and grass are die cut in Copic coloring cardstock and colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  Accented with a white Sakura gel pen.

I stamped the sentiments with the Misti stamping tool. On the inside I stamped the ‘I carrot about you so much’ sentiment and added a carrot. ❤

Hope it makes you smile and think Spring!

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!

Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Release Party!

Hi everyone!  Welcome to my blog post for the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Party!  You’re invited to join the fun…visit all the blogs linked on the Simon Says Stamp blog HERE!  Click to shop and use your code choice to receive an exclusive gift (several options) with your order!  How awesome is that!!!

I have two cards to share with you today using the NEW exclusive SSS stamp set, Your Greatest Dreams.  I love the variety of scripts used and beautiful quotes and sayings!

I couldn’t resist using this one with the SSS Picture Book Snowman!

When I started looking through my SSS stamp and die sets and saw this cute guy and the snowflakes I thought of Frosty!

I created a background by white heat embossing the Lots of Snowflakes stamp set and inking it with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and the mini ink blending tool.

I had to give him a heart. lol  I die cut him in white, colored the parts with Copic Sketch markers and edged his body with Tumbled Glass ink also.

 

My next card uses another sentiment from the same new set…

What a good reminder to enjoy every day!  As I’m writing this post it’s storming and raining but it’s too late to go out in the rain!  I’m tired! lol

Here I white heat embossed one of the clouds from the SSS Cloudy Sky’s stamp set multiple times.  Then stamped one of the outline stamps from the same set with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink and die cut them with the coordinating die set.  I masked off the area for the sentiment and using the mini ink blending tool, I blended on Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink over the clouds and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink on the bottom.

Isn’t that a gorgeous script though!  I love it!

A clean and simple card with a powerful sentiment/reminder!

Thank you so much for visiting my party blog post today! Enjoy the rest of the party stops! What fun!

Memory Box Be Jolly and Alphine Trees Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends!  Look at this cute bunny from the new Memory Box Be Jolly stamp set. I had fun with it and am looking forward to using the rest of the set and the other new set… a great size for coloring!

I love all the nature dies from Memory Box but I might have to say that this Alpine Trees dies is one of my very favorites of the trees!  I don’t think I could ever pick a favorite, favorite though! lol

I colored with the Gansai Tambi 36 watercolor set for the first time.  I like it!  Even spattered with the white paint in the set and that paint brush I was telling out about in my post before this one.  I did mix a couple greens to get that tree color, oh and a blue and green to get the water, scarf and present colors.  Rather fun and easy to use.

The sentiment is from the set and I stamped it with the MISTI and Ranger Black Archival ink… Happy with this sweet scene!

Linking up to some challenges…

The Merry Christmas Challenge – anything Christmas
