Simon Says Stamp: One of a Kind Blog Hop + Giveaway


Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp One of a Kind Blog Hop!!! If you're coming from May Park's blog, you're in the right place!!

I have a few cards to share with use using products from the release. 

This first one uses the So Cool stamp and die set with the new Watermelon and Key Lime inks.


I couldn't resist using the Thoughtful Bouquet stamps with my watercolors and a bit of color pencils for  some extra shading.


This cute little Fox was die cut and shaded with Orange Slush ink. I set him in the Fonder frame with a background of Smoke yardstick embossed with the Circle Doodle embossing plate.


Next up are some tags I've created using the Fingerprint stamp set. I created an entire background of colored inks and stamped a few critters.


And finally, a birthday tag with a couple of cute Chicks!

Simon Says Stamp Cherished Collection Blog Hop + Giveaway


Welcome everyone!!!  
Today we're celebrating the release of the Simon Says Stamp Cherished collection !!

I have a few cards that I've created. This first one uses the Circular Lace Stencil with Distress inks blended through. Once I had my colors down, I removed the stencil and gave the paper a spritz of water. I used the Eyelet Large Border die on the bottom and placed the panel onto a top folding white card. I white embossed my greeting for the Thoughtful Messages set onto some printed paper and mounted to the card. 


Next up is a quick and easy Birthday card featuring the Big Perfect Shapes stamps. I inked them up with Distress inks, spritzed with water and stamped onto watercolor cardstock. I Used the Wonky Heart Die along with my birthday greeting to complete the card. 


Finally I have a fun card using the Wonky Hearts and Wonky Rectangle dies with an acrylic painted background. I used Dina Wakley paints with my finger for quick and easy coverage. Once the paint was dry, I die cut the panel.  I also die cut the word Wonky and paired it up with friend for a fun message. 


I hope I've given you some inspiration using some of our new items. Your next stop on the hop is to the talented Nina Marie Trapani!

I've listed the entire release below, I hope you enjoy!

Simon Says Stamp Mother • Fathers & Florals Blog Hop + Giveaway!


Welcome to my blog everyone!!! Today I'm celebrating the 

If you have come from Laura Bassen's Blog, then you are in the right place!

I've created a few cards using some of the new product starting with the Star Flower Mandala which I've white embossed and painted with soft tones of watercolors. 


I cut out around the outer edge so that I could mount the mandala to a notecard with a bit of foam tape on the back. Ok... who am I kidding... I used a lot of foam tape because well... 
that's my jam! 
This card is all ready for a greeting when an occasion arises!


To continue with the watercolor theme I have going, I used some Distress ink cubes to color the Flora Background (designed by my friend Kristina Werner). I spritzed the stamp with water then stamped onto a panel of white watercolor cardstock. 


I added some Tim Holtz flowers and the Love die cut for a simple greeting and embellishment.


Finally, I stamped a couple of Simon Says envelopes with white embossing using the Sending Flowers stamp set. I love using the transparent envelope with bright paper inside!
