Simon Says Stamp September Card Kit - Let's Celebrate

Hey folks!

I am over the moon excited about the September 2015 Card Kit by Simon Says Stamp. Not only does it feature my most favorite Simon Says colors, but it just has Fabulous (yes, capital "F") written all over it! I'll be honest, it's a rare thing when I look at an entire stamp set and can't decide which one to use first. 

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

I'm a sucker for any stamp set I can color in. I'm a five year old at heart (Ha! Who am I kidding? I'm just a five year old. Period) and I LOVE to color. It's even better when the images are big. The Balloons in this set are just that, and although I plan on stamping them in ink at some point, my first card just had to be watercolored. I like to stick to the Card Kit colors so I went with Ranger Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry, Cracked Pistachio and Tumbled Glass was a close match for Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue. 


I love, love, love the Balloons, but I also really dig all of the little images in the set too. I stamped a few of those in Hero Arts Black Ink and then heat embossed the Balloons with Versamark Ink and Ranger Princess Gold Embossing Powder. I used the same Embossing Powder for the Sentiment from the set on a strip of Simon Says Stamp Black Cardstock. 

I masked off the Balloons with Inkadinkado Stamp Masking Paper because I wanted to try something different. Well, different for me anyway. I added some Ranger Distress Paint in Black Soot on to my Craft Sheet and mixed in some water. Then I loaded up my Watercolor Brush and tapped it off on to my card. 

The final touches when I assembled the card, were a strip of Simon Says Stamp Black Cardstock, DCWV Fold Foil Cardstock and a few Craft Medley Sequins. Done. Easy Peasy.


Can NOT wait to play with this kit some more. Don't forget peep, Simon Says Stamp Stamptember Release is September 1st! Also, Lawn Fawn recently had one as well and they are so cute, I can't stand it! Follow the link below to check out Lawn Fawn's new goodies, if you haven't already. 

Until next time

  1. Loving this card as well. I love the touch of stamping the black "confetti" shapes across the balloons - it definitely gives the design a even more classy and "artsy" feel to it. GREAT card!

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…
