Simon Says Stamp Release….Send Happiness…3 Cards!

Happy Monday to you!  Simon Says Stamp has a new release and they sent me this flower die to play with…I was already doing napkin die cutting so I went ahead and did this new Etched Flower die the same way!  Scroll down to THIS post for a link to the technique/how to video.

I stamped the background for the flower die with the tone on tone look and the SSS Damask Background cling stamp.  I die cut three panels, a white one, the stamped one and a dark pink one with the SSS Frames die, then inlaid pieces from each and taped them together on the back side.  I mounted this panel with Mounting tape.

The sentiment is a stamp from the SSS Sending Sympathy clear stamp set and die cut with the SSS Stitched Rectangles die set.  I had to recut it to get it the right size.

 

The NEW Etched flower die cuts two connected flowers…so I had this single flower left over and parts from the Frames die cuts so I made another card!

The sentiment is also from the Sending Sympathy stamp set.  I taped the pieces together on the back side of the panel and used foam mounting tape to mount it to the cardbase.

My third card…I had an idea but this isn’t anywhere near what I was trying to do! lol  I like it though! lol

I debated whether to stick with a thank you or make it a sympathy card… it could easy go for any occasion!

There’s the NEW Speckled Egg Distress ink is what I used on the white Etched Flower die cuts this time… peeled paint for the stems.

Memory Box 6×6 pattern paper pad for the three papers.

A thank you stamp and some cotton cord and I stuck it all to a white cardbase.

All three cards are A2 size.

Have fun checking out this new release and thank you for shopping through my links!  I appreciate your support so much!

poppystamps Adriana Wreath Card…

Thank you for clicking over for my post today!  I’ve been flipping though the NEW Memory Box 6×6 pattern paper pad…so beautiful and look at these colors!

So I pulled out the NEW poppystamps Adriana Wreath die, die cut it three times with a dark blue green cardstock, glued them together and then wiped on some gold watercolor paint with my finger.  Pictures don’t do it justice!  😀

The thank you sentiment is from the Memory Box Wild Rose Stem clear stamp set….I stamped it on a piece of pattern paper from the new pad with Ranger Black Archival Ink and cut it out with the MISTI Cut Align ruler and x-acto knife.

My background pattern paper is die cut with the Memory Box Rectangle Basics die set and layered onto a TE Buttercream Frosting cardstock A2 cardbase. I staged my photo with some Hobby Lobby A2 envelopes.

This card is growing on me…a color combo I wouldn’t normally gravitate toward!  I hope you like it too! hehe

Thank you for stopping by!  Have fun with your dies and try a different color combo! hehe

poppystamps Leafy Garden Border Die, Napkin Die Cutting and Painting Technique…

Hi everyone! June is flying by just like these butterflies!  I had so much fun revisiting the napkin die cutting and painting technique by Memory Box owner, Dave.

You’ll find the video HERE.

I did it just like he did except this time I used Distress Ink refills for the paint.  I used a drop of refill ink and drops of water, sometimes more, sometimes less.

Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters and Forest Moss.

I used Gansai Tambi gold watercolor for the gold accents, I’ll link everything below.

The A2 cardbase doubles as the background.  I inked it with the NEW Speckled Egg Distress Oxide with a little Tumbled Glass Oxide brushed on also.

Then water droplets, dried with the heat tool, then spattered with White Distress Oxide Spray.  I just unscrew the bottle and tap the ink off the tube with a paintbrush a few times.  I dried again with the heat tool because I wanted to finish putting the card together.

I used the thin mounting squares cut in half to mount the frame die cut and a few behind the leaves.

The sentiment from the Peony Garden Corner stamp set is heat embossed on black TE Oreo cardstock and cut out with the Scan and Cut machine.

I’m linking to some challenges…

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – anything goes

Simon Says Stamp Instagram Challenge for June – Ink blending

Happy Little Stampers – anything goes with dies

This card is perfect for this time of year!  We’ve had plenty of rain and everything is so GREEN!  The sky is so blue! Still no hydrangeas on my three bushes though. hmmmm  I hope you don’t tell me I have to go talk to them! lol

Fun to be back sharing with you… I have a couple more cards coming soon! Thank you for clicking over!

Simon Says Stamp Sketched Flowers Card…

Hi everyone!  A floral card with a big thanks to share with you today.

I stamped this beautiful floral image from SSS Sketched Flowers clear stamp set with Archival Black ink in the MISTI on watercolor paper.

I used the most amazing markers to watercolor with!  Have you heard of the Karin Markers?  They’re from Poland. Just WOW! So cool! I was so surprised and delighted when the pkg arrived at my front door!  A birthday present for me?!  YES!  From an awesome friend!!!  😀 Best Birthday ever!!!  😀

A story I made on Instagram about them… HERE.

They are awesome markers for lettering too.  I’m still working on that… practice, practice!

I spattered and after everything was dry, I die cut the word ‘thanks’ from Altenew’s lower case alphabet set right out of the colored floral piece!  :O

That took a couple weeks for me to get up the nerve! lol  No big deal after all. haha whew!


I added mounting tape to the back of each of the letters and placed them back in after I backed the piece with black cardstock.

I’ve seen a lot of cardmakers do this and have always loved it.  So glad I finally did it!  The simple ‘with heartfelt’ is from a Memory Box clear stamp set.

Links below to what I used…

THANK you so much for stopping by and supporting my cardmaking and blogging!  I appreciate it so much!  YES, with heartfelt thanks! Have a beautiful day!  It cooled off here and I even opened the windows because the humidity is low…so unusual!  So happy about it! lol
