Simon Says Stamp Wild Beauty

Hey folks!

It feels like it's been ages since I've had a chance to share anything with you guys! I'm still taking care of life, but I had to take some time to share Mother's Day cards!

If you're interested in any of the products I've used, I have links (some affiliate links) throughout and at the end of the post. Click here to read my full disclosure policy.


For my cards, I used the new Wild Beauty Stamp Set by Simon Says Stamp. This was in the My Favorite Release and I gotta say peeps, this really is my favorite release!

I'm a maniac and made 15 of these, so I used my MISTI Stamping Tool to stamp them all. I created masks using Inkadinkado Stamping Mask Paper, then stamped them all with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and heat embossed them with Simon Says Stamp Clear Embossing Powder on Ranger Distress Watercolor Paper.

I could have skipped the heat embossing and these would have been super duper easy. I knew that when I started watercoloring that I was  going to make it quick and sloppy (ish) so I wanted the heat embossing to minimize some of the mess.


I really struggled with what colors I wanted to do these in. I just simply couldn't decide what I wanted. So I went to an excellent source for inspiration. Shari Carroll for Simon Says Stamp came up with some Distress Color Combos and I love them.

This was a really great way to try a few different combinations. For one set of cards (first pic), I used Distress Recipe #5. Those were: Worn Lipstick, Stormy Sky, Scattered Straw and Shabby Shutters. On another set (second pic) I used Recipe #6. Spun Sugar, Shaded Lilac, Dusty Concord and Peeled Paint. To change it up a bit I used Recipe #7 (below) which is:  Victorian Velvet, Crushed Olive, Aged Mahogany and Pumice Stone.

I used some sentiments from the Simon Says Stamp Sketch Ranunculus Stamp Set (what kind of fabulousness is this folks?) which I also heat embossed. I used Versamark Ink with Simon Says Stamp Silver Embossing Powder and Ranger Liquid Platinum.


To keep the area around the sentiment clean, I dies cut a scrap of Acetate with a Circle Die from the Simon Says Stamp Nested Circle Die Set and just placed it over the images. Then I used some of the colors from each Recipe and splattered it over the panels.

I used a TON of Clear Wink of Stella on all of the images and added a few sequins from the Iced Berries Mix by Kennedy Grace Creations and some Sparkling Clear Sequins by Pretty Pink Posh.

That's it! I hope you enjoyed my cards today and thanks so much for stopping in to see me! I will be back with a post next week. I am so excited, I'll be participating in a Blog Hop with some fabulous ladies! I can't wait!

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

Hey folks!

It's been soo long since I've been able to share a card with you all and I'm so happy to be back! Now I know folks are busy sharing their Christmas creations and I may have one or two before Christmas, but I gotta be honest peeps, I'm just happy to be coloring again.

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 …
