Simon Says Stamp July 2015 Kit - You Are A Lifesaver

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share another card out of the Simon Says Stamp July 2015 Card Kit.

Simon Says Stamp really knows how to put together a great kit. Month after month I fall in love and this kit is definitely in my top 3 of OMG's.

As usual, if your interest in any of the products I've used, I will have thumbnail links for you at the end of the post!


The stamp set that comes in the kit is called Sailing and it's one of those sets that you can't help but want to use every single one of them. I gotta be honest though, the Life Preserver Stamp gives me warm fuzzies. It's my favorite. So, I stamp it three times with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink on the Simon Says Stamp Ivory Cardstock that came in the kit. I then colored them in with Copic Markers and went over with a lil bit of Clear Wink of Stella.

I stamped the Sentiment with Simon Says Stamp Black Ink and added some Hearts I made using Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder and the Heart Die from the Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling Die Set.

I rarely use patterned papers (not a clue why), but the Authentique Seaside Papers from the kit are fabulous so it had to be done. I also cut a small strip of Simon Says Stamp Lipstick Red Cardstock and adhered that to the Simon Says Stamp Soft Navy Cardstock Card Base as well.

To finish it off I wrapped a little bit of the May Arts Twine (also found in the kit!) around the front panel and attached that to the Card Base with a piece of Fun Foam.

That's it for now. I've have a few new items waiting on my craft table for me to play with, but I'm thinkin, I must make some more out of this kit before the August Kit arrives. Which, by the way, Simon Says Stamp has a sneak peak for us! If you haven't already go take a look on Instagram or Twitter.

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 …
