Simon Says Stamp Simon and Dexter Christmas

Hey folks!

I had planned to share an Avery Elle Card with you all today, but due to technical difficulties it will have to wait till next time.

I can't BUH-leive Christmas is next week! Who's ready? Not me. Christmas cards? Check. House all Christmas-y and pretty? Check. Presents done for all four kids? Nope. Awesome.

A couple months back Simon Says Stamp introduced Simon's best friend Dexter. I created a couple of Cards from the first Dexter and Simon Stamp Set release which you can see here on my blog or on the Simon Says Stamp Blog here. I was beyond excited when they also released the Simon and Dexter Christmas Stamp Set!


Using my MISTI Stamping Tool and Masks I made with Inkadinkado Stamp Masking Paper, I stamped a Panel of Ranger Distress Watercolor Cardstock with Hero Arts Black Ink. I colored the entire panel with Ranger - Tim Holtz Distress Inks. You can see my thumbnail links below for my color choices.

For fun, I used one of the Simon Says Stamp Large Tag Dies to die cut the Panel. I used some Fun Foam behind each of the Die Cuts to give them dimension, but for the Dexter Die Cut, I used 2mm and the Simon Die Cut, I used 3mm.


This guy was an accident. I had initially started stamping on the Die Cuts first, but the Simon Die Cut met an untimely demise and I didn't want this one to go to waste, so I colored this one in with the same Ranger - Tim Holtz Distress Inks and made it in to a card.

I used a Sentiment out of the Stamp Set and stamped it repeatedly on a piece of Simon Says Stamp Surf Blue Cardstock with the matching Surf Blue Ink and trimmed down the Panel with the Stiched Rectangle Die from the Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes Set.

Using the Painted Hello Die by Simon Says Stamp, I die cut a piece of Glitter Fun Foam.


To finish them off, I used Clear Wink of StellaMarshmallow Pretty Pink Posh SequinsMay Arts Twine and some ribbon from my stash. 

That's it for now peeps! I hope you enjoyed my Cards 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…
