Simon Says Stamp Flowers On My Mind & Ranger Tim Holtz Watercolor

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share sort of a follow up to a card I made back in June. The thing is, I had mentioned that when I made that card I had a plan on what I wanted to do, but I changed my mind. Well, I was going to do it again, only this time I would do what I had in mind to begin with. Didn't happen. It's all good. Moving on.

If you're interested in any of the products I've used I will have thumbnail links for you at the end of the post!


I used the same Background and Borders 2 Stamp by Wplus9 on this card as I did the last as well as Ranger Distress Watercolor Cardstock. I heat embossed the image in Ranger Clear Embossing Powder and Versamark Ink. This time however, I decided to stagger the stamping instead of filling the entire card panel. This is a really great set that should be in anyones stash!

On my last card, I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens to fill in the diamond pattern, but this time I chose another route. I felt as though my Ranger - Tim Holtz Distress Inks have been neglected lately so I went to my three favorites colors and watercolored Picked Raspberry, Spice Marmalade and Squeezed Lemonade.

I really wanted to go out on a limb on this one and try something even more different than the last. I decided to use my Simon Says Stamp Flowers On My Mind Stamp Set and instead stamp them in Simon Says Stamp Slate Ink. I used the matching Dies to cut them out of Neenah White Cardstock. For the sentiment, I stamped one from the set with Versamark Ink on a strip of Silhouette Vellum Paper and heat embossed it with Ranger White Embossing Powder. I cut teeny weeny pieces of Scotch Mounting Tape to put behind the letters so they couldn't be seen.

I popped the entire panel onto a piece of Fun Foam and mounted it on a Simon Says Stamp Cardstock card base in Slate.

That's it! What do ya think? Let me know by leaving me a comment below!

Until next time!

  1. Just stumbled on your blog via Instagram. I love the colors and how you staggered the "links" in the "fence" for lack of better description. Keep up the great work!

Making An Easy One Layered Card - Featuring Avery Elle and Copic Coloring

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a suer 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.

Using Dies On A One Layer Card + Altenew Majestic Blooms

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share another card with you all! I've done loads of Copic coloring lately and today's card is no different, but I wanted to try some new (to me) as well.

I think Altenew has some of the most amazing flowers on the market. Their design and versatility is ah-mazing. The Majestic Blooms Stamp set by Altenew is actually a multi-layer set, but I climb on the struggle bus every time I attempt this kind of stamping, so I decided to stick with what I'm comfy with and simply use the outline of the flower and color it in with Copic's.


Since, I'm going to color this in with Copic's and I don't want them to bleed through the inside of my card I stamped the flower and leaves on a piece of Neenah White Cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. This …
