Honey Bee STAMPtember 2020 Collaboration

Happy Friday, crafty friends. Today’s STAMPtember collaboration stamp set is from Honey Bee Stamps… I white heat embossed the large circle image and a sentiment from THIS stamp set and applied Distress Oxide inks on top with THESE blender brushes. The heat embossing resists the color. I also sprayed on some water with THIS for some texture. Crackling Campfire is the newest Distress Oxide ink and I love how it pairs with Fossilized Amber...

Altenew STAMPtember 2020 Collaboration

Hi, crafty friends. Today’s STAMPtember collaboration set is from Altenew…. I white heat embossed the flower image from THIS stamp set on each corner of a white card panel. I applied Distress Oxide Inks on top and spritzed on some of THIS for some texture and shine. I also white heat embossed a few sentiments from the same stamp set on black card stock and cut them into strips. I used THIS t-ruler to...

Mama Elephant STAMPtember 2020 Collaboration

Hello, crafty friends. The STAMPtember fun continues as THIS new collaboration stamp set was just released… I started by inking up a panel with Distress Oxide Inks using my blender brushes. I spritzed it with water using THIS to add some texture. I die-cut a small circle from THIS masking paper and used the negative piece as a stencil. I inked it up with THIS white pigment ink to create a moon. I also...

Sending Happy Thoughts

Hi, crafty friends. I’m back today with a slimline card design featuring products from THIS release… I started by die-cutting THIS slimline die from white card stock. I applied a variety of Distress Oxide inks to THIS work surface and spritzed water on top. I laid the die-cut panel panel on the ink, lifted, dried, and repeated the process. I removed a few of the strips so the black background could show through. I...

Chunky Flower Background

Hello, crafty friends. I’m back with a bright and happy card to kick off the week… I started by applying a rainbow of Distress Ink through THIS stencil. I flicked some water on top for added texture and repeatedly stamped the chunky flower image from THIS stamp set on top of each ink blended area. I adhered the panel to one of THESE note cards and finished off the design with THIS die-cut sentiment....

Honey Bee Stamps Treat Shop

Hello, crafty friends. Did you know that Simon Says Stamp features a new brand every month? Honey Bee Stamps (one of my favorite companies) was featured for June HERE. Since we have one more day left in June, I thought I would share a card I made with some of my favorite Honey Bee products… I started by die-cutting THIS die four times. I added some brick stenciling tot he bottom of the top...

Faux Watercolor Background

Hello, crafty friends. I’m back with more inspiration from THIS new release… I started by inking up THIS background stamp with mini Distress inks. I recommend using minis because it’s easy to “color” in certain areas of the design and get in tight spots. After all the inking was complete, I spritzed the stamp with water and stamped it on to a piece of THIS watercolor card stock. The Distress inks react with the...

Sending Crafty Hugs

Hi there, crafty friends. I’m back again today with more inspiration using Simon Says Stamp’s new release HERE… I started with a tall, slimline card panel measuring 3.5 x 9 inches. I stamped all the bunnies from THIS adorable stamp set and did a lot of masking with THIS masking paper. When masking images, make sure to stamp the image you want in front first, then mask and stamp the image behind it on...

Crafty Hugs Release

Hello, crafty friends. Simon Says Stamp has a new release HERE and it is fabulous! I’m sharing a couple of cards today using some of the new goodies… For both cards, I started by white heat embossing THIS background. This background stamp is unique as it allows you to remove the hexagon from the center of the stamp. I die-cut THIS hexagon die six times from THIS masking paper. I used the masking pieces...
