Interactive Birthday Card

Hi, crafty friends. I’m sharing a card today featuring the new 3D Card Die Set… I started by cutting a piece of blue card stock to 2.75 x 5.25 to create the reveal panel. I applied the Blanco transfer gel through the Fading Circles stencil on the panel. I chose to use the Blanco transfer gel because I was applying it on top of colored card stock. After it was completely dry, I laid...

Just Married Slimline Card

Hello there, crafty friends. I fell in love (pun intended) with the Tied the Knot stamp set and created a slimline card using it… To create this card, I die-cut the Slimline Marquee Die from black card stock and adhered red paper behind it to show through the open circles. I stamped and colored some of the images from the Tied the Knot stamp set. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out....

Garden Greetings Card Kit

Hi, crafty friends. The July Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp is now available! I created a card using some of the kit’s contents… I started by applying Distress Oxide inks to the kit’s embossing folder. I applied it to the side that was flat, not the bumpy side. I spritzed it with water and laid in a piece of watercolor card stock and ran it through my die-cut machine. I love the messy...

Pride Card

Happy Friday, crafty friends. I hope you had a great week. Today’s card share celebrates Pride month… To create this card, I die-cut the Strips 1 die in a rainbow of colored card stock. I adhered them to an A2 black card base and stamped sentiments from the You are Loved stamp set. I added the pride die-cut on top and finished off the design with a few gems. Simon also has a pack...

More Rainbow Release Inspiration

Howdy, crafty friends. I have another card to share using more goodies from the new Rainbow Release HERE. On a slimline panel, I applied pink ink through the Fading Hearts stencil and then I applied Glitter Glitz Gel on top for some sparkle and shine. I stamped and colored the sundae images from the Sundae Afternoons stamp set and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I white heat embossed a sentiment from...

Sending You Sunshine 5×7 Card

Hello, crafty friends. I’m sharing another card created with products from Simon Says Stamp’s new release HERE. Our family is at the beach right now so I thought it’s a great time to share this card… I inked up the Sea and Sky background stamp in three parts using Distress Oxide inks. I love these kind of background stamps because you can pull apart the sections to stamp or keep it as a whole. So...

Rainbows Release Blog Hop

Hi there, crafty friends. I’m excited to be part of THIS blog hop celebrating THIS new release from Simon Says Stamp. I have a few cards to share using embossing folders and alcohol inks… For all three cards, I embossed each embossing folder using Yupo paper. I applied alcohol ink blending solution on top of the embossed panels and then sprinkled on some Pearl Alcohol Inks. I chose the Pearl Alcohol inks because of...

Rainbows Release

Howdy, crafty friends. Simon Says Stamp’s newest release is HERE. It’s called, “Rainbows” and it’s fabulous. Today’s card share features a gatefold design with a vellum belly band… I started by creating a gate fold card base. I used two side folding A2 card bases and scored the front panel down the center. I folded each side back in opposite directions and adhered the back of the card bases together. I stamped and colored...
