More Born to Sparkle Release Inspiration

Hi, crafty friends. I’m back with more inspiration using THIS new release from Simon Says Stamp… To create this card, I started by inking up a brick stencil on a side fold white note card. I die-cut the Window Blooms coordinating die in the front to create an opening. I also die-cut some grass and adhered it along the bottom. I stamped, colored, and die-cut two window boxes. One for the front of the...

New Distress Color: Salvaged Patina

Hello, crafty friends. Tim Holtz recently revealed the new Distress color HERE and it has quickly become my favorite. It reminds me of the ocean (my happy place) so I’m sharing a couple of ocean themed cards today… For the first card… I started by applying white embossing paste through the Spring Boho Circle stencil. After it was dry, I sprayed Salvaged Patina Distress Stain on top heavily and then spritzed with water to...

Born to Sparkle Release Blog Hop

Hi, crafty friends. I’m excited to be part of THIS blog hop celebrating THIS new release from Simon Says Stamp. So, I’m a big fan of when one technique turns into two cards. Today’s cards are a great example of that… To create these cards, I inked up my Gel Press with three colors of Distress Oxide ink. I die-cut the coordinating die from the Spring Bouquets stamp set and laid the white die-cut...

Stamp Kissing Technique

Hello there, crafty friends. I’m back with another rainbow card using products from THIS new release… I inked up the flowers and leaves from the Painted Flowers stamp set with a variety of Distress Oxide Inks. Before stamping the images on white card stock, I stamped them on to the Halftone background stamp. By “kissing” the stamps on to a background pattern, you get some great texture… The kissing technique works well with solid...

Born to Sparkle Release

Hello there, crafty friends. Today’s card features product from THIS new release by Simon Says Stamp… To create this card, I stamped the Color Wheel Background stamp using black pigment ink and clear heat embossed it. I chose to heat embossed to prevent the watercolor from bleeding in between the lines.

Groovy Cards

Hi, crafty friends. I have a couple of groovy cards to share with you today… I applied neon inks through THESE tie-dye stencils to create the backgrounds. I die-cut the peace & love and good vibes dies from holographic card stock and alcohol ink black card stock. I chose to use that black card stock because of it’s velvety smooth finish. I also added a few flowers from the Mother’s Day die to the...

Sunshine and Rainbows Watercolor Prints

Hi, crafty friends. I thought I would kick off the week with a rainbow card… I’m a big fan of Suzy’s Watercolor Prints because they make quick cards and they are great to throw in your bag for on the go coloring.

Dandelion Messages Card Kit

Hello, crafty friends. Today’s card share features the Dandelion Messages Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp… The patterned paper pad included in the kit is so pretty.

I white heat embossed a sentiment from the kit’s stamp set and added a couple of strips of the...
