Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit - Hello, I love You

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a couple of really quick cards with you! I feel as though I say that a lot. With all of the crafty goodness out there, it wouldn't be hard to go to town and use every little thing in my craft room, but I'm a Clean and Simple girl at heart, I suppose. 

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

I started by stamping the Heart from the Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit with Versafine Black Onyx Ink on two panels of Ranger Distress Watercolor Cardstock. I then heat embossed them with Simon Says Stamp Clear Embossing Powder.


I took my inspiration from some of the My Mind's Eye My Story Papers that are also in the Kit. I used Ranger-Tim Holtz Distress Inks (see links below for colors) and my Medium Zig Watercolor Brush to color in both Hearts. To add Gold Accents, like in the papers, I used a Gold Wink of Stella


Using the Painted Hello Die from the kit, I die cut one in Simon Says Stamp Black Cardstock and seven more out of Neenah White Cardstock. I covered one in Tsukineko Delicata Golden Glitz Metallic Pigment Ink as well as a strip to go along the edge of the Card below. For the other six, I had cut out, I stacked them up behind the Gold and Black Hello's for dimension.

Using the same Gold Ink and Simon Says Stamp Doll Pink Ink, I stamped Small Hearts from the I See You Stamp Set on both panels. With the Ranger Ink Blending Tool and Ranger-Tim Holtz Worn Lipstick Distress Ink, I added some ink to a scrap piece of Ranger Distress Watercolor Cardstock to go along the edge of the Card above.


The Diagonal Stripes down the side of each card are actually the Chevron Stamp from the I See You Stamp Set. I stamped it twice on a piece of Neenah White Cardstock in Simon Says Stamp Black Ink, then cut them down so they looked diagonal. 

That's it peeps! Easy Peasy. I have a couple more cards in the works. I'm pretty sure I see a Newton's Nook Card coming soon though...

In the meantime, I hope you've enjoyed my cards today! Don't forget you can follow me on Instagram  and on Facebook! I would love to see you there.

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.

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…
