SSS Rainbow Lotus

Hi everyone,

I'm popping by to share a card featuring the Simon Says Stamp Lotus Frame Die.


I diecut the frame from white cardstock a couple of times, cutting away the flowers before stacking the frames on a piece of Simon's Surf Blue Cardstock. I then diecut the image again from various colours of cardstock, using individual flowers to create a floral rainbow. I adhered the panel to a Neenah Desert Storm notecard stamped with Simon's Outline Butterflies Stamp using their Clear Embossing Ink. I decided not to add a sentiment making this a card that can be used for various occasions.

SSS Wednesday Challenge: Bling It On featuring Stamping Bella

Hi everyone!

I'm back for another Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge



Guess what? 


This week's challenge is to use BLING and the design team is featuring Stamping Bella! Let us see you take your projects to the next level!

As I was shopping for Stamping Bella products I came across this cute goalie stamp set and knew I just had to have it to make something for my goalie son. I obviously wasn't thinking about this month's theme, lol. It wasn't until I had stamped, coloured, and framed this little cutie that I realized I was supposed to use BLING! Oops! Anyways, I've rationalized my decision in that most boys aren't into bling and the fact that I dressed up this piece by framing it is the equvilent to using bling. ;) It now sits on his desk so he can dream of hockey while working on school. :)

SSS STAMPtember Fall Blooms Birthday

Hi everyone!

I finally have a card to share featuring something from the new Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Release. YAY! 

For today's card I decided to use the new Elegant Fall Blooms Die. This die was not on my radar when I made my wishlist but I'm glad Simon sent it to me. I thought it would be great to diecut it from white cardstock and pair it with a patterned paper background and I love the result!


I stamped the diecut with a sentiment from Simon's Sketched Flowers Stamp Set, added some sequins, and adhered it to a piece of patterned paper from my stash. Easy peasy! I think this would be a great design for some card sets.

Altenew 3D Ornament Die Wall Art

Hi everyone,

I'm stopping by today to share some wall art I made for our family room.


I bought a couple of large canvases at our dollar store and used the larger sizes from the Altenew 3D Ornament Dies with scraps of coloured and white cardstock to create this piece. I used Gina K Connect Glue (I went through a few tubes) to adhere the pieces to the canvas.

That's it for me today. Thanks for stopping by!
