Simon Says Stamp July 2015 Card Kit Shaker Card

Hey folks!

I'm still on a job site with my husband in North Dakota. It's hot, dirty and I fear I will be carried away by mosquitos at any moment. I haven't electrocuted myself however, so it could be worse. I think I'm going to call  today a win. Sheesh. 

So, I'm going to share with you yet another another card I made using the Simon Says Stamp July 2015 Card Kit. This has been a really fun kit. Never disappointed with Simon Says Stamp I tell ya! Oh and don't forget the Simon Says Stamp August 2015 Card Kit is out too! If you haven't gotten one, you should. For real. Also, you can never go wrong with the monthly subscription as well!

To begin with, I heat embossed the Sail Away Sentiment on a piece of Neenah White Cardstock with Versamark Ink and Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder. Then using the Cloud Stamps, I made 2 masks with Inkadinkado Stamping Mask Paper and masked off a section over the Sentiment. I also heat embossed the Waves with Ranger Clear Embossing Powder


Using a Ranger Ink Blending Tool, I covered the area with Simon Says Stamp Surf Blue Ink and Simon Says Stamp Soft Navy Ink at the bottom of Waves. I removed the Cloud Masks and used a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle Die to cut it out. I also used two more dies out of the same set to make the Shaker Window, which I made to look like a port. Kinda? Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins and Martha Stewart Iridescent Stars fill the inside.

I cut down a piece of Authentique Seaside Pattern Paper and adhered on top of a piece of Simon Says Stamp Ivory Cardstock that I had die cut using a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle Die.

For embellishments, I stamped the Boat from the stamp set in Simon Says Stamp Soft Navy Ink and fussy cut it out. To add a little pop of color, I colored in some of the stripes with a Red Copic Marker. The sentiment "With Me" was stamped in the same color of ink and die cut that with the smallest of the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle Dies.

To finish it off, I used some of the May Arts Twine from the Kit and one of the Tim Holtz Idea-ology 2015 SOUVENIR Adornments. These are the coolest lil charms. I have a hard time bringing myself to use them. Seriously, I think hoarding them is definitely an option. So cute.

That's it peeps! I hope you enjoy!

Until next time!

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 …
