I have a fun, but simple card to share with you this week. I decided I needed these Laughing Animals in my life. I love laughter, I love seeing people laugh, I love hearing it, I have been known to start laughing myself even if I don’t know what’s so funny, just because hearing my loved ones laughter makes me do it as well.

For starters, I took a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor Card Stock and I stamped these funny guys using Ranger’s Archival Jet Black Ink. I thought they would be really fun to watercolor using distress inks so I started with some Scattered Straw and Walnut Stain and I watercolored my giraffe. Next I colored my elephant with Pumice Stone and added a few shadows to my zebra using Hickory Smoke.

I cut the image out using a Stitched Mod Rectangle die since I didn’t have the matching die. I added a little color to the sky with Tumbled Glass and finished off the bottom with Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron.

I added some foam tape to the back and popped it up on some patterned paper. The patterned paper matched perfectly! I felt it needed a bit more color so I added everything to a piece of Teal card stock. That wasn’t quite enough color for me so I picked out a bunch of colored card stock and using the Slimline Scallop Frame die by Simon Says Stamp, I die cut the Happy Birthday out of each color. The colored card stock I used was Doll Pink, Orange Peel, Banana, Green Apple, Island Blue and a purple I had in my stash.

Now I had my color, but I needed some sparkle, some shine. I went over each letter with a glitter pen and topped them off with some Nuvo Crystal Glaze. That combination adds the PERFECT amount of sparkle and shine. To finish it off, I added a few beautiful aqua pearls from Studio Katia called Bora Bora. Lastly, I added a pink bow for a little extra sparkle. I attached everything to a top folding card base.

So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!

Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Make a Card + Envelope

We are showcasing our very own Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge. 

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $25 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!!

Halloween is going to be so different this year. I usually get our street closed down and we pass out candy to half of the population of our little town but this year… will be different. Everyone that I’ve talked to is not passing out candy this year, including us. It’s not worth the risk. But since we aren’t passing out candy, I decided to make a few Halloween cards this year. I usually don’t make any for Halloween but I wanted to feel that Halloween spirit one way or another.

I’ve never done an envelope before. I mean, I’ve stamped a couple things on the outside but never have I ever gone to this length to decorate an envelope. I loved it!! Now if only I could address it in a beautiful calligraphy or hand lettering. Hopefully someday!! For starters, I cut a piece of Bristol Smooth card stock using a Wonky Stitched Rectangle die and then I started ink blending Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch and Black Soot distress oxide inks. I set that aside to dry.

Once it was dry, I splattered water on it with my Distress Sprayer and to add a little extra sparkle, I flicked on Lawn Fawn’s Liquid Stardust. I set that aside and moved on to the grass. I ink blended Forest Moss and Peeled Paint distress inks and cut out the shape of hills using a hill die from my stash. I made sure to cut the bottom with the Wonky Stitched Rectangle die so that it would match the top part of the card.

Next I moved on to the coloring. I colored all of my images from The Boo Crew stamp set with my copic markers, including the Boo Crew sentiment. Then I fussy cut everything out. I didn’t leave a white border around my images so I took my Black Memento Marker and drew around all of the edges of each image.

Next I heat embossed the second part of my sentiment with white embossing powder and popped both up on some black foam squares. Before putting everything together, I heat embossed the spider and spiderweb (also from The Boo Crew stamp set) with black embossing powder.

Lastly I glued everything together and added a few bats for good measure. I was ready to move on to the envelope. I really wanted to use all of the adorable trick or treater’s in this set, but I didn’t want my card to be too crowded so the few that I didn’t use on the card, I used on the front of the envelope.

I used a white Simon Says Stamp slimline envelope and I added a piece of scrap bristol card stock to the inside of the envelope so that all of the coloring wouldn’t go through. First I stamped all of my images and then I masked them off with masking paper.

I ink blended the same colors that I used on my card. I removed the masking paper and copic colored my images. The envelope was a little difficult to color on only because I’m so used to using only copic friendly card stock. But it was nothing to be concerned about. It still turned out so adorable!! To finish them both off, I added some Aqua Shimmer Pen on both ghosts and a few of the witches accessories. This was my best attempt at photographing the glitter.

Since my card base is black, I added some Fog card stock to the inside which I die cut using one of the dies from the Slim Diagonal Stitched Rectangle set and stamped a few more images. I colored the candy corn on the inside and left the rest uncolored.

So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!

Jingle All The Way… To the New Release

It’s another new release at Simon Says Stamp!!! It’s called Make Merry and you and get there by clicking HERE or scrolling down to the bottom of this post. All I want to do is make Christmas cards now!! What a beautiful release this is!! I LOVE seeing all of the holiday goodies and I couldn’t wait to place my order.

I know I’m a little bit late sharing this, life gets in the way sometimes but I did make a card and I’m excited to share it with you.

I used the Good Cheer stamp set from the new release to make this card. I also used Chunky Christmas and the Large Falling Snow stencil.

To start out I took a piece of Sea Glass card stock and used a slimline die called Slim Diagonal Stitched Rectangle to cut it to size. Then I took the trees from the Chunky Christmas stamp set and the ‘Jingle All the Way’ from the Good Cheer stamp set and heat embossed them with Silver Hologram Sparkle. I didn’t like it on the ‘Jingle All the Way’ so I heat embossed it again but this time with silver embossing powder.

I ink blended Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire distress oxide inks around the edges. I then used my Faber Castell Polychromos colored pencils and colored in the Jingle with a few pink pencils.

I still didn’t like the way the ‘All the Way’ portion of the sentiment looked so I decided to heat emboss it one more time only this time I did it on black card stock with white embossing powder. Third time is a charm!! I loved the contrast that this provided. I popped it up with a couple black foam squares to add some dimension.

Once I was happy with the coloring, I went over it with my glitter pen to add a little extra sparkle. I used the Large Falling Snow stencil by Simon Says Stamp and some embossing paste and added a nice light layer of snow.

I added a few Silver Pearls for an embellishment.

To finish off my card, I added my card front to a top folding card base measuring 8.5″ x 3.5″.

Below is a list of all of the products I used to make this card and right below that is the entire new release by Simon Says Stamp. You gotta check it out, there’s so many awesome stamps and dies and stencils in this release!! Happy Shopping, my friends!!

I’m also entering this into this week’s Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge #160.

Miss You, Love You

Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Make It Sparkle

We are showcasing Stamping Bella Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge. 

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $25 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!! I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

 

I’m in love with this image by Stamping Bella called Curvy Girl With a Diamond. Isn’t she just beautiful? I started out by stamping her on X-Press It Blending Card so that I could color her with my Copic Markers. While I still had her in my Misti, I stamped her again only this time I only stamped the diamond and I stamped it on a piece of the Holographic card stock by Simon Says Stamp.

I accidentally stamped it using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink because that’s what I used to stamp my girl but I quickly realized that the Memento ink wasn’t going to stick so I stamped it again using StazOn Jet Black Ink. Then I fussy cut the diamond out.

I colored her with my Copic Markers. I’ve listed the colors that I used below. Once she was colored, I fussy cut her out as well.

Copic Markers Used:

Skin: E00, E11, E13, R20, R30

Hair: E51, E55, E57

Dress: R81, R83, R85, V000, V01

Flowers: R81, R85, YR00, YR01, G46, G43, Y19

I quickly glued my fussy cut diamond in place because I couldn’t wait to see how it was going to look once it was put together. I immediately loved it!!

I chose a patterned paper for my background from the Moda Scrap paper pack called Let Your Soul Bloom. It’s so pretty and I thought it was perfect for this card. I die cut the patterned paper using a Stitched Rectangle Die.

For my sentiment I used two from the Clean Line Everyday stamp set by Simon Says Stamp and CZ Design. I heat embossed them on black card stock with Alabaster White Embossing Powder. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut my sentiments out.

I added some craft foam to the back of the patterned paper and attached it to an A2 size piece of Rose Gold Glitter card stock using Scor Tape. I find the scor tape works really well with glitter card stock. For everything else I used liquid glue.

 

I adhered everything to a side folding card base. I attached a little piece of craft foam behind the diamond that hangs off of the card stock because I’m going to be mailing this across the US. For a finishing touch, I used my Spectrum Noir glitter pen on the flowers and the ruffles of her dress and then my card was ready to be mailed.

So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!

Spooky Village

Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Anything Goes

We are showcasing Lawn Fawn Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge. 

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $25 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!! I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

 

I LOVE these Anything Goes challenges!! I had so much fun making these cards. I knew as soon as I saw this challenge what stamp set I wanted to use and I knew what I wanted to do for the backgrounds so I jumped right into this project. The stamp set I used is called Spooky Village by Lawn Fawn. I don’t have the die so luckily I was able to use my Brother Scan N Cut to cut all of these out. I started to fussy cut them and quickly realized it was going to take me forever!! So needless to say the die is now sitting in my shopping cart at Simon Says Stamp.

I started out on Bristol Smooth Card Stock and I ink blended 3 backgrounds. I used Distress Oxides starting with Ripe Persimmon, Fired Brick and ended each with Black Soot. The next background is Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn and lastly Wilted Violet and Dusty Concord.

Using X-Press It Blending Card, I stamped out all of my images using my Misti 2.0 and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped all images out on three separate sheets and copic colored each to match my backgrounds.

I did some more ink blending for my grass using Mowed Lawn, Lucky Clover, Peeled Paint and Black Soot. I used the Simon Says Stamp Grassy Edges die to cut my grass out.

Before gluing everything in place, I sprinkled some water and Black Soot on the backgrounds. I didn’t on the purple background though only because I forgot and there’s not much of the purple background showing.

I used more grassy area on the purple card and I didn’t really love it so I made some adjustments for the next two.

How cute are these little ghosts??? Lawn Fawn has the BEST accessories in their stamp sets. I love all of the little pieces that make up this scene.

I tried to get an angle so that you could see all of the little dimension pieces because I think it’s all about the little details that make a card amazing.

I heat embossed the sentiment using Brutus Monroe’s Alabaster White embossing powder.

I used the thin black foam squares to pop up little details. Here’s a few more pictures just for fun.

So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!

  I decided to go with a shaker card this week. The stamp set I used is called Party Animal by Doodlebug and since it’s a kid themed stamp set, I thought a child would love a shaker card!! I stamped the images on Copic friendly X-Press It Blending Card and colored them with my copic markers. I used MFT’s Mini Cloud Edges stencil to do some really light clouds in the background. I cut it out using one of the Stitched Rectangle dies by Lawn Fawn.

Using two of the Stitched Rectangle dies from Lawn Fawn, I created a frame. I used a piece of the patterned paper from the Doodlebug At The Zoo 6×6 patterned paper pad to create the frame. I also used another piece of the patterned paper pad for the background as well.

I created my shaker window and added a bunch of different sequins from my stash. I attached everything to a top folding card base. I created the Happy Birthday with the Happy Birthday Brush Script die by Simon Says Stamp.

So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!

Humorous/Fun Card

We are showcasing Riley and Co. products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge. 

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $25 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!!

I LOVE this company!! They have the absolute BEST sentiments!! I actually laughed out loud when I saw this one so I knew I had to use it. It’s conveniently called Boobs in My Coffee by Riley and Co. I paired this sentiment up with a stamp by The Rabbit Hole called Caffeinated Cat which I thought was a perfect match.

After I colored my caffeinated cat with my copic markers, I took a piece of Bristol Smooth Card stock and the Splatters stencil by Tim Holtz and stenciled the coffee rings up in the top left corner of my panel with Ground Espresso distress ink. Then I used a Stitched Rectangle die by Lawn Fawn and die cut it to give it a nice stitched border. I took some Walnut Stain distress ink and ink blended all around the edges of my stitched panel.

Using my mini Misti I stamped my sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used several foam squares, both large and small and popped my caffeinated kitty up a bit.

I then grabbed an A2 piece of Neenah Desert Storm card stock and stamped the coffee beans all around the edge using Sparrow ink by Simon Says Stamp.

I used a piece of craft foam to pop up my top layer and then attached it all to a top folding card base. I used the Neenah Desert Storm card stock for the card base as well.

I also made a 2nd card using the same sentiment. I did exactly the same thing, I just used a different image.

I used the Simon Says Stamp Coffee Cup wafer die for this card.

Which one do you like better?

So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!

Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Stamp It

We are showcasing Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Products this week.  WOOHOO!! Since the release just went live yesterday, I’m sure you guys don’t have any new STAMPtember goodies just yet, but feel free to use any Simon Says Stamp product, if you have it. If not, that’s ok too. Just follow the prompt and share you creations with us.

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $25 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!! I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

  Can you believe it’s STAMPtember already?!? I look forward to this day each year, more than I do Christmas day!! The new release is AWESOME!! It’s the best one I’ve seen yet AND there’s a new collaboration happening each week for the entire month of STAMPtember!! If you’d like to see the entire release, CLICK HERE.

This card came together really quickly. I started out on a piece of Bristol Smooth Card Stock cut down to A2 size. I’ve been dying to try out these gorgeous neon inks by Rina K so that’s just what I did! I ink blended several colors and then went to work on the Stamp It portion of my card.

I used several of the sentiments from the Because of You stamp set and using my Misti, I lined them up around my main focal point which is the Because of You sentiment. This took some time but I had a little help from my Misti Grid Transparency so it made it a little easier to make sure everything was centered and straight.

I stamped the sentiments with Memento Tuxedo Black ink twice. I had planned on heat embossing it with black embossing powder, but I was too impatient to let the paper dry. I did try and dry it using my heat tool, but as I tested it by pouring just a little bit of black embossing powder straight on my background, I realized it would probably need quite some time to dry. The black embossing powder was everywhere. So I skipped the embossing and just stamped it twice to get a nice bold black impression.

I carefully cut the background down to 4″ x 5.25″ and mounted it to a black background. I actually had to take the safety guard off of my Tim Holtz Paper Trimmer temporarily so that I wouldn’t smudge the ink. I had to make this background twice because the first time, the black ink smudged pretty bad when I went to trim it down. I was in a bit of a hurry because I was making several cards for the new release and the blog party that’s also happening today along with this challenge. Everything was happening at once!!

To finish it off, I added a few Onyx Crystals by Studio Katia and attached it all to a side folding card base.

So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!

Are you ready to check out this AWESOME new release from Simon Says Stamp yet? SCROLL DOWN TO SEE THE ENTIRE STAMPTEMBER RELEASE!!! Or… Just CLICK HERE.

And now I want to share with you what I made using the Because of You Clear Stamp Set. I started out by creating an alcohol inked background. I trimmed it down just a fraction and attached it to a pink background.

Using the same pink card stock, I heat embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder. Then I used a white gel pen to create a white stitched border. I added a few strips of foam tape to the back of the sentiment to give it a little dimension.

I attached it all to a top folding card base. And that’s it!! The background took the longest to create but after that, this card went together very quickly.

I made a second card using the same stamp set.

For this card, I started out on a piece of Bristol Smooth Card Stock and ink blended a little Wilted Violet distress ink. Then I embossed the You Matter background stamp with clear embossing powder. I ink blended more Wilted Violet so that the embossed image would stand out a little more.

I die cut the background using a Stitched Rectangle die by Lawn Fawn.

I took a strip of Vellum and white heat embossed the sentiment. I made sure the vellum was long enough to wrap around the the background so that I wouldn’t have to have any glue on the front.

I sprayed the background with Tsukineko Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Sparkle to give it a beautiful sparkly glow. To finish it off, I added it all to a top folding card base and attached a few Clear Round Drops by Studio Katia.

That’s it for me today! Don’t forget to head to the Simon Says Stamp Blog and check out all the inspiration featuring products from the STAMPtember release.
