Simon Says Stamp - Stamping With Die Cuts + Masking + Stacked Die Cuts

Hey folks!

I gotta be honest, I had absolutely no plan when I made the cards I'm sharing with you today. I started with one idea and when that was done, I moved on to something else. It. Was. Wonderful. It has been soo long since I've had a chance to play like that! So...

So, I started by Die Cutting some Fun Foam with the Simon Says Stamp Mini Flowers and Leaves Die Set. They're soo cute and itty bitty, I just love them! Anyway, I added some Tombow Mono Removable Adhesive to my Acrylic Block and arranged my Foam Flowers and Leaves on it.

On my Neenah White Cardstock Panel, I masked off a diagonal across the panel with some Post-It Tape. Then, I used Hero Arts Unicorn White Pigment Ink and stamped down the center and heat set it with my Hero Arts Heat Gun.

At this point, I decided to mask of sections and do some Ink Blending with a Ranger Ink Mini Blending Tool and a RAINBOW of Simon Says Stamp Inks (see thumbnail links below).


I didn't pay too close attention to the width of each stripe, I was mostly concerned with keeping them strait.

When I was done, I wanted to narrow some of the wider Ink Blended Stripes, so I masked those off, then took a Versamark Ink Pad directly to the paper then heat embossed them with Simon Says Stamp Gold Embossing Powder.

At this point, I decided to use the Simon Says Stamp Big Hugs Die and Die Cut the center of the Panel. This is a really great way to get two cards out of one Panel. I also, Die Cut a piece of Simon Says Stamp Slate Cardstock and about eight more out of Neenah White Cardstock.


I stacked all of the Big Hugs Die Cuts together for both Cards, but before I placed them back into the negative spaces on both Panels, I loaded some Fun Foam with iCraft Adhesive Tape and placed each Panel on top. This way the adhesive holds the panel, but also it will help hold the Die Cuts into place as well.

Both of my Card Bases are Simon Says Stamp Slate Grey Cardstock and I finished both cards with some Clear Wink of Stella and a few Doodlebug Design Lily White Sprinkles.

That's it!


I hope you enjoyed my cards today! ALSO, be sure to stop by the Butterfly Reflections Ink Blog, I have this Card to share! I used a Stamp Set by Memory Box. It's called Thoughtful Bunny. Seriously folks? How cute can this get?

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.
