Sending Good Vibes

  Hi there, crafty friends. I’m so excited that the new Good Vibes release is now available from Simon Says Stamp. You can view the entire release HERE. I’ve been busy making samples with the awesome products. For today’s card… I started with the background. I wanted to create a 60’s tie dye look to go along with the font of the word die. I cut colored tissue paper into squares, sprayed it with...

Decorated Envelopes

Hi, crafty friends. I wanted to share a quick way to add a little something to your envelopes. I used THESE envelopes for my examples today… I love the look of coordinating envelopes but don’t always have time to add matching art to them. So I wanted to have a few on hand that were already decorated and ready to go. Since I don’t know which cards they will be paired with, I wanted...

Simon Says Stamp July 2018 Card Kit

Hello. Today’s cards feature a fun floating sentiment technique using products from THIS new card kit. For the first card… I stamped the watermelon image from THIS stamp set (included in the card kit) multiple times, filling a background. I quickly colored in the images with THESE and added THIS to the black seeds for some shine. I die-cut a circle using THIS die from the background and a card front. I sandwiched a...

Distress Resist Spray and Specialty Stamping Paper

Howdy, crafty friends. Today’s card features some fun backgrounds using THIS resist spray and THIS specialty stamping paper… I sprayed the resist spray through a stencil and applied ink. You could use the spray on any card stock, but I wanted to experiment with THIS stamping specialty paper. It has a slight glossy finish and worked well with this technique. One thing to note…Spray this into a deep box and wash the stencils immediately....

Ice Cream Gift Card Holders

Hello, crafty friends. Happy Friday! I’d thought I’d share what I’m gave to the staff at my son’s school for the end of the year gifts… I planned something different for his main teachers, but I still wanted to say thank you to all the wonderful staff at his school. (secretary, nurse, traffic helpers, past teachers, OT, speech, etc.) I was looking for something inexpensive because I had so many to purchase. I thought...

Simon Says Stamp Sending Sunshine Release Blog Hop

Hello, crafty friends. I’m taking part in a fun blog hop today to celebrate the Sending Sunshine release from Simon Says Stamp. I created two cards using THIS new background die. I used THESE markers and scribbled them quickly in rainbow order on a piece of THIS paper. I used a paintbrush with water to blend the colors. After it was dry, I die-cut it using THIS new background die. I also cut the...

Simon Says Stamp June 2018 Card Kit

Hello, crafty friends. Today’s card features THIS new stamp set that is included in THIS new card kit… The stamp set measures 6×8 and has a large floral cluster image in it. I stamped the image twice on a piece of THIS watercolor using THIS ink and clear heat embossed on top for some shine. I decided to leave the floral images without color since they were so bold on their own. I stamped...

Swimming Pool Slider Cards

Hi, crafty friends. Today’s cards were so fun to make. I think THIS stamp and THIS die set are so clever that I had to make a couple of cards with it. First, I stamped all the images at once using my MISTI. I colored them in with Copics and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I created the water with alcohol inks. I applied alcohol ink THIS paper to resemble water....
