Simon Says Stamp October 2015 Card Kit - Here's Looking At You

Hey folks!

I thought that since today was October 1st, it would be a great day to share a card I made using the Simon Says Stamp October 2015 Card Kit! I'm not getting paid to think today folks, so hang in there with me.....

I love Simon Says Stamp Card Kits. I really do. Even if I don't use everything in them they are so fabulous. Can't beat that. This month is called "Here's Looking At You". If I could get my husband to stop saying "No, no here's looking at you." while he winks at me, that would be great!

Anyway, I really didn't have a plan here. I just kind of picked my favorite shapes out of the I See You Stamp Set that's in the kit and started stamping.


I started by stamping the Chevron Stripe Stamp with my MISTI Stamping Tool with Versafine Black Onyx Ink on Neenah White Cardstock. I then heat embossed it with Simon Says Stamp Clear Embossing Powder. Next, I stamped the Heart over the top of the Stripe with Versamark Ink and Ranger Princess Gold Embossing Powder. I cut the Panel down with a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle Die as well.

The Glasses were stamped on a scrap of Neenah White Cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Lipstick Red Ink and then I went over it again with Versamark Ink and Simon Says Stamp Clear Embossing Powder. I used the same Lipstick Red Ink to make my own colored cardstock to go behind the Front Panel. I also added some Clear Wink of Stella to the lenses and fussy cut them out. After I put them on the card with Scotch Foam Tape, I added some Ranger Glossy Accents

I stamped the Sentiment on a scrap of Simons Says Stamp Black Cardstock with Versamark Ink and Simon Says Stamp White Embossing Powder. The Sentiment under that was stamped with Simon Says Stamp Black Ink.

Since there was a lot of shine going on, I went with some Muted Metallics out of the Muted Metallics Shaker Mix by Lucy's Cards for embellies. They matched the Princess Gold Embossing Powder perfectly!

That's it peeps! Up next will be Booyah by Lawn Fawn after that will be the Boo Boxes! Woot! In the meantime I hope you enjoyed 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.

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…
