SSS June Card Kit: Sending Birthday Joy

Hi everyone!

I'm popping by to share a final card featuring the lovely Simon Says Stamp June Card Kit: Leafy Frames.




I really wanted to showcase the Kaisercraft Coconut Mini Paper Blooms on this card so I paired it with some of the Carta Bella Botanical Garden 6x6 Paper and a sentiment from Simon's Leafy Frames Stamp Set. I added some of the Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter to the 'handle' of the bouquet and also the tips of the flowers (which is hard to see in the picture).

SSS June 2019 Card Kit: 3 Card Set & GIVEAWAY!

Hi everyone!

I'm back today to share a set of cards I made featuring the Simon Says Stamp June Card Kit: Leafy Frames.


For these cards I made my bases with Simon's Green Leaf, Neenah Desert Storm, and Simon's Cotton Candy Cardstocks. About midway up each card I stamped the floral border from the Leafy Frames Stamp Set with VersaMark Ink. I added coordinating pieces of Carta Bella Botanical Garden 6x6 Patterned Paper to the bottoms and strips of solid paper between them and the stamping. Next I added one of the Carta Bella Botanical Garden Frames and Tags to each card and finished them off with dots of Gina K Connect Glue covered with Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter.

SSS June Card Kit: Beautiful Life & Giveaway!

Hi everyone!

Today is reveal day for the Simon Says Stamp June Card Kit: Leafy Frames and it's a beauty! Here it is (all components are shown at the beginning of my supply list):


Here's the card I'm sharing today:


I made a notecard with some of the Neenah Desert Storm Cardstock and stamped the floral frame from Simon's Leafy Frames Stamp Set on it with their White Pigment Ink. Once dry I coloured it in with Prismacolor Coloured Pencils. I then adhered one of the Carta Bella Botanical Garden Frames and Tags which fit inside the stamped frame perfectly. Finally, I added some dots of Gina K Connect Glue and covered them with Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter to make my own subtle embellishments.

SSS Sweet Friendship Blossoms

Hi everyone,

I'm popping by to share a card made using the gorgeous Simon Says Stamp Blossoming Stamp Set.
This stunning tree stamp really doesn't need any help to shine. I stamped it on some Neenah Solar White Cardstock, coloured the entire panel (including the background) with Copic Markers, and added some Sherbet Shimmer Nuvo drop to the flower centers. The white heat embossed sentiment is from Simon's Tiny Words Faith Stamp Set. All of the supplies used are linked to at the end of this post.

SSS Our Redeemer Lives & May Card Kit Winner

Hi everyone!

I wanted to stop in today to wish you all a Happy Easter! My prayer today is that you all know just how great God's love for you is and that you recognize your need for Him. God is good!

I thought I'd share this Easter card today featuring a few products from Simon Says Stamp and also announce the winner of the Simon Says Stamp May Card Kit.


I decided to pair Simon's Outline Floral Cross Die with their Outline Floral Frame Die diecutting both from Simon's Audrey Blue Cardstock, and the cross again from Neenah White Cardstock. The two dies fit almost perfectly together. The only adjustments I had to make were removing a circle from the right side of the cross and one small branch from the frame in same area. I adhered the pieces with Gina K Connect Glue to some Simon Says Stamp Peacock Cardstock covering an A2 notecard made from Neenah White Cardstock. The sentiment, from Simon's Tin,y Words Faith Stamp Set, was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black Dye Ink. Finally, I filled in flower centers, berries, and circles with white jewels and sequins from Little Things by Lucy's Cards.

Finally, the winner of the Simon Says Stamp May Card Kit (as picked by my son recovering from wisdom teeth surgery) is...

Shona Chambers said...
Fab idea to stamp an image over two layers and love seeing a sentiment on its side instead of the usual!!

May you all have a blessed Easter!

SSS May Card Kit: So Happy For You, GIVEAWAY, & Limited Edition Mother's Day Card Kit!

Hi everyone!


I'm stopping by today to share a final card featuring the Simon Says Stamp May Card Kit. I thought I'd put the Alcohol Inks away for this one and focus on one of the beautiful floral images and papers from the May Card Kit.


I did a little spotlight stamping, using the floral image with Simon's Green Apple Dye Ink on their Green Leaf Cardstock which had been diecut with the rectangle from their Bundle of Stitches Die Set. I stamped the same image again with Simon's Rosie Cheeks Dye Ink on their Cotton Candy Cardstock which I had diecut with one of Simon's Large Tag Dies. I adhered the green panel to my notecard, added a few strips of the ModaScrap Let Your Soul Bloom Patterned Paper, and adhered the tag with foam tape (making sure to line up my two stamped images). Finally, I diecut one of the CZ Simple Tabs Dies from a piece of the ModaScrap Let Your Soul Bloom Patterned Paper and stamped a sentiment from the Delicate Flowers Stamp Set with Versafine Onyx Black Ink before adding it to my card.
