Simon Says Stamp February 2016 Card Kit - Hello Beautiful

Hey folks!

Stopping in with a really quick card! I've been sooo busy lately, that I've just been going from one thing to the next without even thinking! Sheesh...

For my card today, I used the Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit. There really isn't enough time in the day to play around with this kit. It really is a fun kit!


So, I started by stamping a Neenah White Cardstock Panel with a Sentiment from the Hello Beautiful Stamp Set. I used Versafine Black Onyx Ink and heat embossed it with Simon Says Stamp Clear Embossing Powder.

I trimmed down both sides of the Panel, then used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle Die to cut out around the Sentiment. Then, I added a circle of Fun Foam behind the Die Cut Circle.


Using my Fiskars Paper Trimmer, I trimmed out two strips of the Crate Paper Hello Love Paper from the cut. I also cut two thins strips of DCWV Gold Foil Paper.


My embellies were simple. I used some DMC Gold Embroidery Thread and Die Cut more DCWV Gold Foil Paper with the Mini Hearts Outline Die and attached them to my Card.

That's it peeps! Easy peasy. I hope you enjoyed my card today!

Until next time!

Simple Ink Blended Die Cuts

Hey folks!

So much to do and sooo little time, but I wanted to take a minute and share some cards with you today! Overall these are super easy, but I made seven (SEVEN!!) of them so it took just a wee bit of time.

My cards today feature the Single Roses Die by Simon Says Stamp. My original plan was to Die Cut a bunch and stack them up, but...I got the idea to do some ink blending in rainbow colors instead.


I used a Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool and blended two Simon Says Stamp Inks on each Rose. You can see my color choices below in the thumbnail links.


To trim down the Neenah White Cardstock Panels, I used the two Curved Dies from the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Slopes And Hills Dies Set. I used the same dies to make strips of Simon Says Stamp Slate Cardstock.

For my Card Bases, I used Simon Says Stamp Black Cardstock.


To finish off my Cards, I used Kennedy Grace Creations Sequins from the Frosted Cupcakes, Iced Berries and Dress Blues Mixes. I can't say enough how much I love these! If you haven't checked these out yet peeps, do so because they are awesome!
I added a lil bit of Clear Wink of Stella to each Rose as well.

That's it! Easy peasy.
