Sail Away With Me - Simon Says Stamp July 2015 Card Kit

Hey folks!

I am so excited about the July Card Kit by Simon Says Stamp! It's been sitting on my table for a couple of days and I've been hoping to get a chance to start using it. Well today was my day peeps! Woot!

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. 


For this card, I used a few of the stamps from the stamp set and stamped the Boat and "With Me" Sentiment in Versamark Ink and heat embossed them with Ranger Liquid Platinum on the Simon Says Stamp Ivory Cardstock that also came with the kit. I thought it would be groovy to use my Versamark Pen and add it to some of the open areas on the Sailboat Stamp and again, use Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder to fill it in. I used the same embossing powder and the Sail Away Stamp on a piece of Silhouette Vellum Paper. I cut them both out with Technique Tuesday Circle Dies.

I stamped two of the Clouds, in the stamp set, with Simon Says Stamp Surf Blue Ink on the matching cardstock and fussy cut them out.

I kept the embellishments simple. I used the May Arts Twine that is in the kit and I had some Stars that I had die cut using the stars from the Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling Die Set. I had heat embossed a piece of plain cardstock with Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder before I die cut them. This is probably one of my favorite ways to make embellishments. Super easy and they will always match!

That's it! Easy peasy.

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.
