Simon Says Stamp Father's Day & Ranger-Tim Holtz Distress Ink

Hey folks!

Happy Father's Day to all of the Daddy-O's out there!

I'm here today to share my contribution to Dad's Day. I'm so very blessed to say that I've got some pretty amazing Dad's in my life. Especially my Dad and my husband, but I'm biased.

I gotta be honest, I'm on the fence on this one. I don't love it, but I don't hate it either. It was however, super duper easy to make. 

If you're interested in any of the products I've used, I will have thumbnail links for you at the end of the post!


I used the Sizzix - Tim Holtz Bricked Embossing Folder that I covered in Ranger - Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Black Soot on a piece of Simon Says Stamp Cardstock in Slate. I made a fantastic mess, (I make a lot of those), but I really loved the results of this technique. After I tore the piece at an angle, I used a Ranger Ink Blending Tool with more Ranger - Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Black Soot around the edges and lightly over the top, to make it just a lil more grungy (?) looking. The Black Panel on the Card Base was embossed with the same folder.

For a little bit of color, I tore a couple of strips of Bazzill Pomegranate Splash Cardstock and inked the edges of those as well then used my ATG Tape Runner to adhere those to the back of the Slate piece. 

The sentiment is from the Father's Day Stamp Set by Simon Says Stamp.  I heat embossed the sentiment on a piece of Simon Says Cardstock in Black with Ranger Silver Embossing Powder and then I went over it with some sandpaper to give it more of a worn look. What a fantabulous set! I made several of these cards and there were enough sentiments in the set, I could use something different on almost al of them. Definitely a great stamp set for the stash!

That's it! Easy peasy, even if I'm not in love. My husband and my Dad said they love them, so I'll call it a win!

Until next time!

Making An Easy One Layered Card - Featuring Avery Elle and Copic Coloring

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a super easy and super fast one layered card with you all!

It's no secret that I love to mask and build up the images on a card. However, sometimes it's great to skip the masking and get the same effect. That's what I've done on my card today folks.

I'm a sucker for butterflies and if you make them rainbow and I will clap my hands like a demented seal. For real. So today I used the Butterflies Stamp Set by Avery Elle and did some basic Copic Coloring (color choices in thumbnail links below) in a rainbow color scheme.

On Neenah White Cardstock, I stamped my images in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink with my MISTI Stamping Tool. You don't need a MISTI, but I'm a manic and it's almost impossible for me to line up my stamps again with a…

The stamp set I used today is Ah-mazing! It's the Hello Lovely Stamp Set by Concord & 9th and I'm tellin ya folks, if you're looking for something that has a whole lotta wow factor AND is easy, this is your stamp set.

Using my MISTI Stamping Tool, I stamped my Neenah White Cardstock Panel with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink.

There are some really groovy stamps in the set if you wanted to just ink them up and stamp them within the outline image, but I LOVED the idea of coloring this bad boy in.

Altenew - Garden Treasure + Copic Coloring

Hey folks!

Happy-ish Monday! I don't know what in the halibut it is peeps, but every time I think I'm going to do something different. Break out some mediums I've haven't used in a while. Do something other than flowers, it's abracadabra I have myself a card panel with lots of pretty masked flowers that must be colored in with Copic's. Oy. So, stop me if you've heard this one! I'm back today to share a card with lots of pretty masked flowers, that I had to Copic color.

Doesn't Altenew have the most fab flower stamps EVER? I never get tired of coloring their flowers. So for my card today, I chose to use the Garden Treasure Stamp Set. I love it. It's a nice sized 6" x 8" set with all of those gorgeous layering options Altenew is known for.


As usual, I start…
