Simon Says Stamp Cute Snowflakes and Foiling

Hey folks!

Here we are peeps! It's 2016! Pretty sure the older I get, the faster time flies.

I love the idea and the look of a foiled card. I think they are soo spiffy, but I've held off on giving it a go until now.

Posts like these make me really wish I did videos. Since I don't, this will be a tad bit longer than usual.


There are many, many foiling techniques out there, but for my card today, I wanted to Foil a Stamped image. A really amazing resource for foiling is Jennifer McGuire. You can check out her videos HERE.

I stamped images from the Cute Snowflakes Stamp Set by Simon Says Stamp with Versafine Black Onyx Ink on Neenah White Cardstock. Then I scanned it into my computer. Given the type of scanner I have, I took one extra step and imported it into Adobe Lightroom. This is what I use for photo editing. I wanted to crop out the extra white space and make sure that my lines were solid black after scanning.

Then, I imported the Image into Pages (I'm a Mac user). I made one Card, but I duplicated the image so I had 4 Images on the page. I can make more later, if I want. Then I printed them out with my HP LaserJet Pro P1109w Printer.


I trimmed off some pieces of iCraft® DECO FOIL in Teal and Silver and placed the over the Images and ran it through my Heidi Swapp Minc Mini.

The corner of my Card Panel had a small run in with my Cat's wet paw sooo...I decided to fussy cut the edge of the image because there was no way I was scrapping this!

I heat embossed the bottom right of the Audrey Blue Card Base with a Sentiment from the Stamp Set using Simon Says Stamp White Embossing Powder.


To finish this bad boy off, I added some Doodlebug Design Lilly White Sprinkles and DMC Silver Embroidery Floss.

That's it! Over all it's pretty easy, it just takes a little bit of time because there are several steps.


In my last post, I showed a sneaky peaky of my card that's on the Butterfly Reflections Ink Blog. Those are live on the BRI Blog now so be sure to go check them out!

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 …
