Simon Says Stamp Hey Bestie Release…

Hi everyone!  Busy week here on the blog and it’s just working out that I’m finally getting to wish you a Happy New Year!  Another year for happy cardmaking and papercrafting!

It’s NEW release time of the month at Simon Says Stamp.  I received this NEW background stamp called Etched Snowflake to show and tell!

 


I stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with silver embossing powder.  Did some Oxide inking/blending/spattering over the top, die cut a snowflake in glitter paper, silver embossed a sentiment… just enough to combine the subtle with some pizzazz!  Oh, I did give it a couple spritzes of Sparkle spray.

It was fun just playing around and using different colors than I would normally pick.  This card ended up 5 ¼ inches square.

Thank you for stopping by yet another day this week! ❤

Here’s what I used to make this card…and here’s a code to use at SSS when you shop.  There’s also a code to get a free die with a $50 order… use BFF489!

Simon Says Stamp Diecember Shimmer Oval Die Card…

Hi everyone!  I hope you’re starting to receive some handmade cards!  I hope to get mine mailed out this weekend!

Today’s post is about this new die from Simon Says Stamp, Shimmer Oval.  This was so easy to make!

I die cut in 110# Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock.  I do shim but I use copy paper, not the metal shim.  I just add a folded piece of copy paper on top of my top cutting plate and cut with the die blades up.  This one I used two folded pieces of copy paper, so 4 layers.

Then the oval white panel and the gold glitter panel I die cut with Memory Box Rectangle Basics dies.

I heat embossed the sentiment from SSS Inside Christmas Greetings clear stamp set on a piece of vellum with Ranger super fine detail gold embossing powder.

I die cut two of the mistletoe dies from the SSS Christmas Foliage die from Diecember Release also.  I added Ranger Gold glitter stickles to the berries.  I debated adding them but I gave myself a talking to.  I’m always wanting to leave things plain, so I had to ask myself why did I buy gold glitter stickles then?!  So I put them on the berries. ha!

I glued the gold glitter cardstock panel to the white A2 cardbase first.  Then I adhered the white oval panel with strips of foam mounting tape.  The white floral oval is glued flat on the inside of the popped up oval panel.

I prepared the vellum panel by creasing the folds on each end before I stuck the white panel down, making it easier to adhere after I placed the inside floral oval.

Then I just glued the ends of the mistletoe cuts.


I still have to stamp something on the inside.  In fact most of my cards that I need to get mailed still need stamped on the inside.  I am always sorry I don’t do that when I make the card. moan.  Oh well, I’ll set up the platforms and get them stamped!  hehe

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy stamping, shopping, whatever phase you’re in!  Relaxing would be nice! haha

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 Believe In You Release Cards…

Hello!  I have two cards to share with you using a new die, Today Will Be Awesome, from Simon Says Stamp’s new release, Believe In You. Check out the release!  It’s huge and lots of beautiful stamps and dies!

I’m also using their Nautical Stripe Stencil that was new with their last release.  Here I used it straight up and down on Taylored Expressions Cookie Monster cardstock, inkblending on Cookie Monster ink with a mini ink blending tool. I love the tone on tone look!

I die cut the stenciled panel with a Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangle die.

I die cut the new die in TE’s Toffee cardstock and since it’s thicker the letters stayed in the cut.  Then I die cut it in Cookie Monster and glued the letters over the Toffee die cut.  Easy placement that way..

The die comes with a rectangle die to back it too… that’s handy. I cut it from TE’s Confetti Cake cardstock.

I embellished with the Memory Box Scribble Leafy Branch Background die cut from TE’s Granny Smith cardstock and a few Doodlebug Matte Sprinkles.

For some reason I really like how this turned out! lol  It’s not like me to have such a contrast of colors!

My next card…

Same die and stencil, I just did the stencil diagonal both directions, with Lawn Fawn Merman and Cilantro inks and Confetti Cake and Granny Smith cardstocks.

I used the next size down of the Wrapped Stitch Rectangles dies and added the Scribble Leafy Branch Outline die to the leaves this time.

I like this one too.  I should mail them! Imagine that! lol

oh and here’s a picture of a couple backgrounds I made last month with this stencil but didn’t get anything made up.  Too bad, they would’ve been great patriotic cards!  So the stencil, 3 different ways!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I appreciate it and always hope you enjoy and are inspired by my cards!

Here’s the products I used to make these cards…
