SSS Dino Picture Book Animals

Hi everyone,

I'm back with some more of Simon Says Stamp's Picture Book Animal Dies, this time a few of their adorable dinosaur dies.

Using these dies is a great way to use up scraps of cardstock and can easily be paired with patterned paper backgrounds. I cut the bodies of each dino from two different colours of cardstock so the spots would be a different colour from the main colour. This also enabling me to make two dinos from each die. The sentiments were computer-generated but since the time I made these cards Simon has come out with a fun set of sentiment stamps called Punny Animals that pairs perfectly with many of the Picture Book Animal Dies.

Simon Says Stamp Debra Background

Hi everyone, 

I'm popping by to share a set of cards I made using the Simon Says Stamp Debra Background Die. I thought it'd be fun to make a few monochromatic cards with this die pairing the diecuts with lighter coloured backgrounds. The Debra Die., with all its detail. really did all the work for me. I just finished the cards off with sentiment strips and a few wooden veneer pieces.

SSS Alcohol Ink Snowflakes & November Card Kit Winner

Hi everyone!

I'm popping by to share a card made with Simon's fabulous new Outline Snowflakes Background Stamp which came out as part of their Fun and Festive Release and announce the winner of the Simon Says Stamp November Card Kit.

For today's card I created my background with Stream Alcohol Ink, Snow Cap Mixative, and Blending Solution on Yupo Paper, using a Distress Marker Spritzer Tool to move the ink around. Once dry I white heat embossed Simon's Outline Snowflakes Background over top. I added stripes of matching Simon Says Stamp Glitter Paper to the top and bottom of the panel and adhered it to a Hero Arts Notecard. The sentiment from Simon's Critter Sweaters Stamp Set was stamped on a piece of cardstock cut using one of Simon's Sentiment Labels Dies. I finished the card off with some Studio Katia Iridescent Bubbles.

SSS November Card Kit: Sending Hugs & Giveaway

Hi everyone!

I'm back to share a final card featuring the Simon Says Stamp November Card Kit.


For today's card I wanted to include a message from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Snarky Small Talk Stickers...but I'm not snarky, lol. (Words of encouragement is actually my love language so I'm sensitive to words). My solution was to modify one of the stickers. I can't remember what the rest of the message I used was but I think it was something like "Just not me." There are a couple of greeting in the sticker booklet that can be modified to remove the snark and even individual words could be cut out and rearranged to create your own message. (I'll have to try that!) Anyways, here's my clean and simple card for today. I think the making of it is pretty self-explanitory. :)

SSS November Card Kit: Appreciate You & Giveaway

Hi everyone!

I'm back to share another card featuring the Simon Says Stamp November Card Kit.


For today's card I decided to use a number of the leaf images from the Simon Says Stamp Thanks & Leaves Stamp Set to create a wreathe on a notecard made from Simon's Ivory Cardstock. I embellished the wreathe with Simon's Bronze Sequins and two of the Idea-ology Butterflies Adornments. The Green Leaf Cardstock at the bottom was stamped with  leaves using Simon's Green Apple Ink. My sentiment was stamped on a strip of Neenah Desert Storm Cardstock using Simon's Khaki Ink.

Simon Says Stamp November Card Kit: Thanks & Leaves Reveal & Giveaway!

Hi everyone!

Today is reveal day for the Simon Says Stamp November Card Kit: Thanks & Leaves!


This month's kit is about sending thanks (& a bit of snark) and includes Simon's beautiful new Thanks and Leaves Stamp Set with wonderful sentiments and leaf images. Also included is a package of stunning Idea-ology Butterflies, Idea-ology's Snarky Small Talk Stickers, Simon's Bronze Sequins, as well as some tags, envelopes, and cardstock from Simon Says Stamp.

Here's the card I made to share today using all the elements found in this month's kit except for the Snarky Small Talk Stickers. I'll show a card in a future blog post using one of these stickers minus the snark. ;)


For this card I adhered some of Simon's Green Leaf and Orange Peel Cardstock to a notecard made from Simon's Ivory Cardstock. I then adhered Simon's 4 Bar Kraft Envelope to the front (faced down) with some of the leaf images stamped on the flap with Simon's Barely Beige Ink. I adhered the tag in place and stamped the sentiment with Simon's Green Leaf Ink.



The butterfly and sequins were adhered with Ranger's Multi-Medium Matte in such a way that the envelope could still be opened to include a gift card, cash, or longer letter then could be written in a card.
