Clearly Besotted Autumn Flowers and Altenew Crisp Inks

Hey folks!

It's that time of the year where everyone is either feeling the itch to start Fall Crafting or starting to think about it. I would say, I'm past just thinking about it (obviously), but I definitely haven't reached "O.M.G. Pumpkin Spice Everything!" yet.

If you're interested in any of the products I've used I will have links (some affiliate links) throughout the post. Click here to read my full disclosure policy. 

My seasonal orders are starting to come in and one of those was some Clearly Besotted love! I really wanted the Autumn Flowers Stamp Set, because aside from the fact it is AWESOME, I think it would make a great set for other seasons as well. 

I've been looking forward to using the Altenew Summer Afternoon Crisp Dye Ink Pad Pack and I thought this stamp set would be perfect for it.


I put a scrap piece of Simon Says Stamp Ivory Cardstock in my MISTI Stamping Tool and starting apply color to the stamp. I started with the darkest (Paper Bag) on the inside of the Leaf and worked my way out to the lightest color (Buttercream). Before I would add the next color I used a Baby Wipe to soften the edges of the color I just applied. After I was done stamping, I fussy cut the image and added a wee bit of Clear Wink of Stella to the veins. 

For the Gold Strip and Die Cut, I heat embossed a scrap piece of Neenah White Cardstock with Versamark Ink and Ranger Princess Gold Embossing Powder and die cut the Hello Die from the Simon Says Stamp Painted Words Die Set and cut the thin strip as well.

The circle is Simon Says Stamp Ivory Cardstock die cut with a Stitched Circle Die also by Simon Says Stamp.

I used a Sizzix Texture Fades Embossing Folders Tim Holtz in Woodgrain on another piece of Simon Says Stamp Ivory Cardstock to give the card some texture. That and it's probably my most favorite embossing folder EVER!

To finish it off I added a couple Hero Arts Gemstones and some Craft Medley Sequins and called it a day. 

That's it peeps. I do have a card featuring a stamp from Newton's Nook Newton's Perfect Pumpkin coming soon. In the mean time, I hope you enjoy my card today! 

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.
