Simon Says Stamp - Cloudy Skies

Hey folks!

I haven't had a lot of time to get my craft on lately, but I finally found some time today so I'm here to share a really quick card with you all!

Okey dokey, I started by masking off a Neenah White Cardstock Panel with Post-It Labeling Tape, only leaving a square open in the center. I used the Simon Says Stamp Large Grid Paper Pad (BTW, these bad boys are totally worth the investment!) to make sure that my masking was straight, but it would also be super easy to use a ruler and lightly pencil in a square before masking.

After I had my area masked off, I used a Ranger Ink Mini Blending Tool and added Simon Says Stamp Ink in Lemon Chiffon, Apricot, Thistle and Surf Blue. I was thinking sunset, because I really wasn't sure where I was going with this.


Next, I used two of the Clouds Stamps from the Simon Says Stamp Cloudy Skies Stamp Set and stamped them with Versamark Ink and heat embossed them with Simon Says Stamp Silver Embossing Powder. Then I used the coordinating Cloud Dies to die cut them out. Both the Stamp and Die Set are from the Reason To Smile Release. This Release has some of the best Spring items EVER folks!

Before I attached the Clouds to my Card Front with Scotch Foam Tape, I placed them where I thought I would want them. This way I could get an idea where to stamp the Birds from the Cloudy Skies Stamp Set. I stamped those lil guys and the Sentiment with Simon Says Stamp Slate Ink.


Before I attached Panel to a Simon Says Stamp Slate Cardstock Card Base, I stamped it with the Simon Says Stamp Diagonal Stripe Background Stamp with the matching Ink.

I finished off my Card with some Clear Wink of Stella on the Birds, but otherwise didn't add any extra embellies.

That's it!

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…
