Simon Says Stamp May 2016 Card Kit - Copic Coloring + Sales

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a quick card with you all! PLUS there are some really great sales going on this weekend! I'll have those at the bottom of my post, but first...

I'm a huge fan of Simon Says Stamp Card Kits! For my card today, I used the May 2016 Card Kit which is called Showered With Love. Sadly, the Kit itself is sold out, but Simon Says Stamp is awesome, so you can always get everything individually (see thumbnail links below).


Using some of the images from the Happy Days Stamp Set that's in the kit, I started by making masks for them with Post-It Tape. I knew I would be doing some ink blending later and I find Post-It Tape holds up really well to that.

I stamped the images in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink on Neenah White Cardstock. I used my MISTI Stamping Tool, because I almost always stamp something cock-eyed if I use a regular stamp block. It's what I do.


I colored all of my images in with Copic's (see colors in thumbnail links below) and I thought about sticking to the colors that are in the kit, because they are some of my Simon Says Stamp faves, but I decided to go for a more primary color look.

I am still having technical difficulties with my Copic N0, so after I started shading in one of the clouds, I had to come up with Plan B. Soooo...I stamped 2 more clouds, making sure to mask off the lil face and covered them in Versamark Ink, then worked in Some Ranger Perfect Pearls in Perfect Pearl. After I cut them out, I lined up the one that would "go behind" the kite and lightly drew a line so I could cut off  that side, then ran both clouds threw my Xyron Sticker Maker.


Before I put the clouds on to the panel, I masked off the images, and used a Ranger Ink Mini Blending Tool to add some Simon Says Stamp Island Blue and Surf Blue Ink around them.

I then die cut the panel with the largest Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle Die and added LOADS of Clear Wink of Stella to the Kite and the Sun Rays. I also used a Uniball Signo White Gel Pen for the Kite's cheeks.

To finish it off, I add a few Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and mounted the panel to a Simon Says Stamp Lipstick Red Card Base.

That's it! Easy peasy.

Okey dokey, in case you've missed them, there are a few sales STILL going on peeps. All of these are good until tomorrow. Do be sure to check out the details on each store's site though.

Simon Says Stamp is running a Stock Up Sale on Ranger - Tim Holtz Products. 20% off is pretty spectacular. This is a fabulous way to stock up for the upcoming Online Card Classes. Which is something else that's totally worth checking out folks!


Studio Calico is doing 20% off site wide and past kits as low as $5. Can't beat that!


Pretty Pink Posh is having a sale as well. There you can get 10% in stock stamps and dies. My wallet hates me...


Last, but certainly not least, the sale at Sizzix is up to 90% off select items aaand free standard shipping on order $175 or more.

Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today and as always I hope you enjoyed my card 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 …

Concord & 9th - Hello Lovely

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 …
