Simon Says Stamp August Card Kit - Hello Sunshine

Hey folks!

Summer is coming to end and I am so bummed. I love summer! So, I thought I'd try to hang on to as much of that summer feeling as I could and use the Simon Says Stamp August 2015 Card Kit at least one more time.

We've had so much smoke from fires the last few weeks, it feels like I haven't seen the sun in ages. I feel so bad for those that live closer to them. If it's bad where I live, it has to be unbearable for those that live closer to them. 

So, I wanted to concentrate on oranges for this card. The colors remind me of summer sunshine and heat. Also, these colors are gorgeous, so it was kind of a no brainer. Although there were a few steps, this card was really easy to put together. 

If you're interested in any of the products I've use, I will have link for you throughout the post!

For the Main Panel, I lined up all 3 of the Simon Says Stamp Wavy Scallop Stitches Dies on a piece of Simon Says Stamp Ivory Cardstock and ran it threw my Big Shot. Then, with a Ranger Ink Mini Blending Tool, I went over each section with Simon Says Stamp Ink in (top to bottom) Melon, Sunkist, Coral Reef and Orange Peel. 

To keep my pieces together so I could easily attach them to my Card Base, I used a piece of Glad Press'n Seal. I can't find my tape (it's grown legs and walked off) and wanted something that wouldn't add bulk behind the Card Panel. I know lots of peeps use Press'n Seal to pick up delicate die cuts so they can be put on to cards, but this worked great to keep the pieces together AND I could just leave it on the back and just run my tape runner over it. Easy Peasy.

I stamped two of the stamps from the set that comes in the Kit, and die cut both with a couple of Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle Dies. I had stamped the word HELLO in Simon Says Stamp Smoke Ink, but it just didn't stand out enough. So, I colored it in with a Copic Marker in BG15

I love the Die that come in the Kit so much! It's great for summer, but you could totally use this for so many different cards! For this, I inked up a scrap of Neenah White Cardstock with Versamark Ink and covered that with Ranger Princess Gold Embossing Powder, then cut it out with the die. 

I finished the card off with Clear Wink of Stella and some Pretty Pink Posh Sequins in Marshmallow and that was that. I'm thinking about adding some Ranger Glossy Accents to the HELLO before I send it off. Yes, no?

Don't forget peeps, the Simon Says Stamp September Card Kit is available! If you haven't, you should get it. It's gonna be awesome.

That's it for now! I hope you enjoy!

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.

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!
