Kind Heart Card Kit

Hi, friends. I’m back today with more inspiration using THIS card kit form Simon Says Stamp. (Click HERE to see a previous post with more inspiration using this kit.) I decided to make a shaped card for something fun and unexpected. I die-cut the largest die from THIS heart die set…once from a folded note card and once from a piece of card stock. I made sure to let the die hang off the...

Interactive Mother’s Day Card

Hi there, crafty friends. Today’s card share is an interactive Mother’s Day Card… I started by die-cutting THIS butterfly die a few times out of a piece of THIS kraft card stock. I backed the openings with an alcohol inked piece. I white heat embossed a sentiment from THIS stamp set and finished off the design with a sprinkling of THESE. I adhered the panel on to a piece of THIS card stock. I...

More Simon Says Stamp Fluttering By Release Inspiration

Hi, crafty friends. I’m back today with more inspiration using another picture book die from THIS new release. (If you missed yesterday’s post, click HERE.) THIS new lion picture book die is so cute. I thought it would be perfect for a little boy card. I die-cut it from THIS and THIS card stock. I made sure to cut the mane of the lion three times to give it some dimension and used THIS...

Simon Says Stamp Fluttering By Release

  Hi, crafty friends. Today’s card uses a few new products from THIS new release by Simon Says Stamp. I’m a big fan of the Picture Book Animals. Simon has added a few more to their collection in this release. THIS Otter, THIS Squirrel, and THIS Lion. For today’s card, I die-cut the Otter twice and adhered them to a background piece cut with THIS die. I used THIS on the eyes and nose...

Double Take: Bunny Cards

Hi there, crafty friends. Happy Easter! I’m back with another Double Take, where I share two cards with a similar design, but different color schemes. I stamped the bunny image from THIS stamp set twice, colored them with Copic markers, and fussy cut them out. I die-cut THIS heart from some of THIS patterned paper. I also die-cut it from a variety of colored cardstock. For the first card… I used the negative piece...

Concord & 9th March Guest Designer-Week 4

Hi, crafty friends. I’m so sad that this is my last guest post for Concord & 9th this month. I’ve had so much fun creating with their new release. Today’s card combines THIS new stamp set with THIS new die set… I started by stamping THIS stamp on to a piece of white card stock with black ink. The stamp set has images you can stamp inside the open areas, but I decided to...

Concord & 9th March Guest Designer-Week 3

Hello, crafty friends. Happy Friday. Today’s cards features new products from Concord & 9th… I have to say that THIS stamp set was my favorite from the release. I think it’s because it reminds me of my childhood. I grew up in the 80’s and I remember having rainbow wallpaper in my bedroom.  It also reminds me of the rainbow care bear I dressed up as for Halloween when I was five. Every time...

St. Patrick’s Day Gift Basket

Hi, crafty friends. Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I thought I’d share what I created for the teachers at my son’s school. I use any Holiday as an excuse to spoil them. 🙂 I shared a similar idea HERE last year and they were a hit. This year, I added a few different things to the basket as well as the tags… I’m currently obsessed with THIS stitching tag from My Favorite Things. I like...

Simon Says Stamp Love Release

Hi, crafty friends. Have you seen the new Love Release from Simon Says Stamp!? You can see it HERE. I’m sharing three simple Valentine’s Day tags (using some of the new products) that would make a great gift topper or even wrap around some chocolate to give as a gift… The new picture book dies were the perfect scale for tags. I die-cut a bunch of luggage tags out of white cardstock. The die...

Friends Release Blog Hop

Hi, crafty friends. I’m honored to be part of this blog hop celebrating Simon Says Stamp’s Friends Release. I have three cards to share today that feature THIS new die set… I thought it would be fun to share three different ways to use the same die set…  1. Create your own DIY cover plate.  I love the look of a die-cut background, but cover plate dies can be expensive. Instead, I created a...
