SSS March Card Kit: Floral Hello (& Giveaway)

Hi everyone,

I'm stopping by to share a final card featuring the Simon Says Stamp March Card Kit.


I wanted to focus on the cute flowers included in the Choose Joy Stamp Set. I thought they'd pair up well with the Carta Bella Hello Sticker and lined patterned paper. I die cut the paper with one of Simon's Wonky Rectangle Dies and added the sticker to the middle. I then used the Hollyhock and Wisteria inks included in the Card Kit to stamp the flowers, adding Simon's Jelly Bean Ink for the leaves. I added some stamped hearts and coloured all the stamped images with the Tonic Nuvo Shimmer Pen. Finally, I adhered the finished panel to a notecard made from Simon's Green Leaf Cardstock.




Unfortunately the Simon Says Stamp March Card Kit is now SOLD OUT. If you'd like to make sure you don't miss out on future card kits and to recieve a discounted price of $29.99 + shipping per month, you can SUBSCRIBE HERE.

The good news is that sweet Heidi, owner of Simon Says Stamp, has given me an extra Simon Says Stamp March Card Kit to pass on to one of you! Just leave a comment on any or all of my March 2018 Card Kit posts and I'll announce a winner Wednesday January 28th.

SSS March Card Kit: Garden Forever, Giveaway, & Sale

Hi everyone,

I'm back to share a couple more cards featuring the Simon Says Stamp March Card Kit: Choose Joy.


Today's cards were quick and easy to put together using the Carta Bella Spring Market Papers and coordinating stickers (found HERE and HERE). I die cut the papers using Simon's Wonky Rectangle Dies and adhered them to notecards made from Simon's Cotton Candy and Green Apple Cardstock. For both cards I cut the label stickers in half so I could stretch them out to cover the entire card fronts. The sentiment sticker on the first card was adhered with foam tape to give it added dimension.



The sentiment on the second card was stamped on a piece of the Carta Bella Patterned Paper with the Simon Says Stamp Hollyhock Hybrid Ink Cube and also adhered with foam tape.

SSS March 2018 Card Kit Reveal (& GIVEAWAY)!

Hi everyone!

Today is reveal day for the Simon Says Stamp March Card Kit and it has me dreaming of Spring! 


This month's kit is JAM PACKED with TWO full-sized stamp sets (Flowers & Showers and Choose Joy), two Simon Says Stamp Hybrid Ink Cubes (Hollyhock and Wisteria), a Tonic Nuvo Shimmer Pen, Darice Pom Poms, 2 sheets of Carta Bella Spring Market Stickers (HERE and HERE) and matching Spring Market 6x6 Papers, Neenah White and Desert Storm Cardstock, as well as Simon's Cardstock, Cream Pre-folded Cards, and Envelopes.

For today's set of cards I stamped images from Simon's Showers & Flowers Stamp Set with Simon's Khaki Dye Ink on to the Neenah Desert Storm Cardstock. I die cut these images using one of Simon's Stitched Square Dies and coloured them with Prismacolor Coloured Pencils before covering the images with the Tonic Nuvo Shimmer Pen. I covered Simon's Cream Pre-folded Notecards with their Green Leaf, Green Apple, and Cotton Candy Cardstock, added strips of the Carta Bella Spring Market Patterned Paper that I had die cut with Simon's Stitched Wimbley Borders Dies. I pieced the cards together and stamped sentiments from the second stamp set included in the March Card Kit: the Choose Joy Stamp Set using the same Khaki Dye Ink. Finally, I added one of the Darice Pom Poms to the bunny's tail using Ranger Multi Medium Matte.


Here are some pictures of the individual cards:

SSS Masculine Diamonds Cards

Hi everyone!

Today I'm sharing some cards made using the the Simon Says Stamp Stacked Diamonds Die


I wasn't sure what direction I was going in when I die cut my first piece from Simon's Slate Grey Cardstock (I rarely do) but my first thought in looking at it was that it would kind of cool to use the negative space in some way. I die cut three more pieces from SSS Green Leaf, Green Apple, and Neenah White cardstock, layered them on top of one another slightly off center to create this:


I backed the pieces with Simon's Surf Blue Cardstock and adhered the panel to a notecard. I stamped a sentiment from Simon's You Matter Stamp Set on a strip of the Green Leaf Cardstock and diecut a piece of Simon's Black Cardstock using Simon's You Die. After adding these to the card, I finished it off with some enamal dots.

And because I couldn't let all the leftover pieces from this card go to waste I also made the following cards (supplies listed at the bottom of this post):






That's it for me today! Have a great weekend!

SSS Diecut Inlay Florals

Hi everyone! Happy Monday!

Today I'm stopping by to share a couple of cards made using some newer dies from Simon Says Stamp: the Cosmo Flower Frame Die and Mum Flower Frame Die.


I die cut the images from 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" pieces of Simon's Smoke Gray Cardstock and adhered these to notecards made from Neenah Solar White Cardstock. I then die cut the images again from various tone on tone patterned papers from my stash and puzzle pieced these on to the cards. I white heat embossed sentiments from Simon's Jumbo Stripes Stamp Set on black cardstock and finished the cards off with various gems, pearls, and sequins.




I love how these turned out and plan to make a set of 8 similar cards to have on hand for a gift.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great week!

Ombre Diecut Inlay & Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit Winner

Hi everyone,

Today I'm sharing a couple of cards made using the Simon Says Stamp Felicity Snowflake Die. I love that this die isn't as obvious a snowflake as many snowflake dies are. It gives it much more flexibility of use.


For both of these cards, I diecut the Felicity Die from 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" pieces of Neenah Solar White Cardstock. I placed some Stick It on the fronts of a couple of notecards and adhered the large negative space backgrounds as well as the snowflakes themselves. I then coloured the small negative space pieces with Copics, creating an ombre of colour, and popped the pieces into place. This took some time but I really like the look of it. The sentiments from Simon's You Got This Stamp Set were stamped on coordinating colours of cardstock and adhered with foam tape. Finally, I added some of Lucy's Card Sequins.



Here's a picture of the one I made with shades of purple:


Now for the winner of the Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit...

SSS February Card Kit: Handcrafted Hello & SSS Love Release

Hi everyone!

I'm back to share another card featuring the fabulous Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit: A Colorful Crafty Life and also share Simon's newest release "Love" which can be found HERE. This release includes elegant, cute, and punny stamps and dies, a stencil and some new Suzy's Love and Friendship Watercolor Printables.

I'm hoping to order a few things from the new release to play with. In the mean time here's a reminder as to what February's Card Kit includes:


For today's card I made a notecard from Simon's Burnt Orange Cardstock and stamped various images from the Crafty Friend Stamp Set on it using Simon's Sunkist Dye Ink. I white heat embossed the sentiment on the Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock and painted the piece with the Daniel Smith watercolors included in the kit (colours listed in supply list below). Once dry, I die cut the panel using one of Simon's Wonky Rectangle Dies. I adhered the panel to the notecard with foam tape and added some of the lovely Studio Katia's Cupid's Kiss Crystals to finish off the card.


If you're interested, you can pick up the Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit for $34.99 + shipping. If you'd like to receive this kit and future kits for $29.99 + shipping per month, you can SUBSCRIBE HERE.
