Look for the Rainbows Card Kit-More Inspiration

Hello, crafty friends. I’m back with more inspiration using THIS card kit from Simon Says Stamp… I started by repeatedly stamping the large sentiment from the kit’s stamp set using THIS ink on a piece of white card stock. (It gets a bit washed out in the photo, but in real life, it adds some interest without being too distracting.) I die-cut it using THIS stitched rectangle die. I stamped the flower stem image...

Simple Watercolor Backgrounds

Hello, crafty friends. I have two cards to share today with the same design, but two different color combinations… To create the watercolor pieces, I started by taping down THIS paper with THIS tape to a hard board. I scribbled stripes of colors on each panel with THESE markers and added water to blend the colors a bit. Once it was dry and I added some of THIS on top, I clear heat embossed...

Subtle Stenciled Backgrounds

Hello, crafty friends. I’m back today with a card that features a subtle stenciled background… To create the background, I started by blending a few Distress Oxide inks in the same color family on a piece of THIS paper.

More Inspiration using the Believe in You Release

Hello, crafty friends. I’m back with even more inspiration using the new release from Simon Says Stamp, which you can find HERE. I created a set of birthday cards with THIS new stamp set. I’m a big fan of watercolor but struggle with it. I love the look of ink smooshing but wanted a more controlled look, so I applied the ink to a small acrylic block. I used a rainbow of Distress mini inks...
