Simon Says Stamp Pastel Coloring

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a set of cards that I've done. I've had pastel colors floating around in my head for a few days now. The theme for the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge was pastel and I couldn't seem to shake the thought.

So, I've just taken off like a house on fire and made several! I hope you enjoy!

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

One of my favorite stamps sets is the Cups and Succulents Set by Simon Says Stamp. It is such a lovely set. I've used this set before and you can see Inktense and Simon Says Stamp Cups and Succulents HERE and Masking Multiple Stamps and Simon Says Stamp August Card Kit HERE or click on the links below.

This card was really easy. No masking, no fancy schmancy, just coloring. I stamped the images on Neenah White Cardstock with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink. I started with a full panel, but trimmed it down with my Fiskars Paper Trimmer in the end.


Instead of trying to match pre-colored cardstock, I colored in a scrap of paper with the Red Copic's and the Grey Copic's that I had used on the Card Panel. I used a thin strip of Simon Says Stamp Black Cardstock and a lil bit of Clear Wink of Stella and that was that. 


Of course, watercoloring with Distress Inks never falls far behind in the coloring department for me. In fact, I'm pretty sure if someone told me I could only pick one, Copic or Distress Ink, I would have to quit life and become a burrito. I just wouldn't be able to choose. 

For my first one, I went a little more bold. I stamped the images in Simon Says Stamp Black Ink and went with Ranger - Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Picked Raspberry, Cracked Pistachio, Salty Ocean and Hickory Smoke (love!). 

Using my MISTI Stamping Tool and the same Simon Says Stamp Curved Edge Die I die cut the panel with, I lined up the Simon Says Stamp Handwritten Borders sentiment on a Simon Says Stamp Black Cardstock Card Base. Then, I heat embossed it with Versamark Ink and Simon Says Stamp Silver Embossing Powder.



On this one, I tried something a little bit different. This time I stamped the images in Simon Says Stamp Smoke Ink. I can't honestly say what my plan here was. No line watercoloring? Noo... Less visible outline? Maybe? I don't know. 

This time I went with Ranger - Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Worn Lipstick and Tumbled Glass and I mounted the panel on Simon Says Stamp Slate Cardstock. However, I did use the same technique and another sentiment from the same set as the card above. 

I finished it off with Hero Arts Clear Gemstones and Clear Wink of Stella


Last, but not least, I also did a white version. For this one, it's all the same as the card above, but this time I used a Neenah White Cardstock Base and I mixed up the embellishments. For those I used some Silver Sequins from the Pretty Pink Posh Enchanted Garden Mix (Woot! New sequins!) and some more Hero Arts Clear Gemstones. Let's not forget the Clear Wink of Stella!

That's it! One thing I really love about making cards this way, is it's great to have them hand. I normally try to stay a month ahead, but this is an extra bonus. It helps build up the ol' stash. Ya know?

Anyway, 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 suer 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.

Using Dies On A One Layer Card + Altenew Majestic Blooms

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share another card with you all! I've done loads of Copic coloring lately and today's card is no different, but I wanted to try some new (to me) as well.

I think Altenew has some of the most amazing flowers on the market. Their design and versatility is ah-mazing. The Majestic Blooms Stamp set by Altenew is actually a multi-layer set, but I climb on the struggle bus every time I attempt this kind of stamping, so I decided to stick with what I'm comfy with and simply use the outline of the flower and color it in with Copic's.


Since, I'm going to color this in with Copic's and I don't want them to bleed through the inside of my card I stamped the flower and leaves on a piece of Neenah White Cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. This …
