Simon Says Stamp Stacked Die Cuts + Distress Ink Background

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a couple more Christmas Cards with you! It should come to no surprise that these were easy to make and came together quickly.

I gotta be honest peeps, I didn't really have a plan with these. I had a little bit of this going and a little bit of that going and after (more than) a few squirrel moments, I pulled it all together and made these two cards.


I started with the Simon Says Stamp Lined Tree Die and the Simon Says Stamp Happy Winter and Christmas Dies. I thought I had an idea for these, so like a crazy lady, I die cut a bunch out of Neenah White Cardstock and then I glued them all together with Ranger Multi Medium Matte Adhesive. Then I realized I didn't have a plan. At all.


For the background, I used Ranger - Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint and Twisted Citron on Ranger Distress Watercolor Cardstock. On both Panels, I loosely colored each color in light layers, making sure to dry the Panel with my Heat Gun in between before I added more.


When I came to the realization to pull this all together and make cards out of them, I used the "Happy Christmas" Sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Holiday Circle Sayings Stamp Set and "Merry" from the Gifts of Love Stamp Set also by Simon Says Stamp. I stamped them with Versamark Ink and Simon Says Stamp White Embossing Powder.

To finish them off, I used the Jillibean Soup Self Adhesive Sequins from the Simon Says Stamp December Card Kit.

That's it! Easy peasy. In a I haven't a clue where I'm going or what I'm doing sort of way.

Up next, I will be showing some Avery Elle love. In the meantime, I hope you enjoyed my cards today!

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 …
