SSS April Card Kit: Quick and Easy Spring Card Set

Hi everyone,

I'm back to share a set of cards I made featuring the Simon Says Stamp April 2019 Card Kit.


These cards were quick and easy to put together with the Simple Stories Spring Farmhouse 6x8 Patterned Papers. I used some of the patterned papers for my backgrounds and all the sentiment center pieces are also from the Simple Stories Collection. I used the Bohemian Teal Nuvo Drops for flower centers, to add some interest to the cards.

SSS April 2019 Card Kit: Hello Rainboots Card & GIVEAWAY!

Hi everyone,

Guess what! My Simon Says Stamp April 2019 Card Kit arrived yesterday! Whoot Whoot! I was so excited to play with it last night and this morning....I made ELEVEN cards (8 are part of a quick and easy card set) and I can't wait to play with it some more. The Hello Darling Stamp Set is absolutely fabulous with its various fonts and images. The Rainboot Planter Die is just SO sweet and the papers and 2 sticker sheets are beautiful. The Bohemian Teal Nuvo Drops make great flower centers and you get FOUR envelopes and matching papers this month.


Here's the card I'm sharing today:


I made a notecard from some of the SSS Cotton Candy Cardstock and stamped the three border stamps and sentiment from Simon's Hello Darling Stamp Set with Simon's Rosie Cheeks Dye Ink. I die cut the Rainboot Planter Die from Simon's Ivory Cardstock, colouring the flowers with Copic Markers. I also die cut one of the Simple Stories Spring Farmhouse 6x8 Patterned Papers and die cut the top and bottom of the boots again from Simon's Sea Glass Cardstock. It was easy to fussy cut along the imprint lines left by the die. I pieced all these papers together, adding some shadows with a light grey Copic Marker, and adhered the finished boots to the card front with some of the Sizzix Foam Adhesive. I finished the card off with some of the Bohemian Teal Nuvo Drops.

SSS Fresh Bloom Release

Hi everyone!

Today is release day for the Simon Says Stamp Fresh Bloom Collection! This great new release has me dreaming of Spring!


Here's the full release:



Simon sent me a few goodies to play with and today I have this card to share with you:


Using my MISTI, I stamped the Pretty Peonies Stamp on Desert Storm Cardstock with Simon's White Pigment Ink. I then coloured the image with Prismacolor Pencils. I restamped the image to bring back the details and because I used my MISTI the placement was perfect. I diecut the panel with the rectangle from Simon's Bundle of Stitches Dies. The sentiment from Simon's new Buttercup Stamp Set was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and clear heat embossed. I added the panel to a white notecard and embellished it with Glitter Nuvo Drops.

That's it for me today. I hope you enjoy this wonderful new release as much as I do! Have a great weekend!

Happiest of Birthdays & GIVEAWAY!

Hi everyone,

I'm still waiting for my Simon Says Stamp March Card Kit to arrive. I'm not sure what happened to it or if it will show up at all. Stick with me to the end of this post. I'm going to do my Simon Says Stamp March Card Kit giveaway today regardless. :)


Unfortunately I've also had a bad case of "the Februarys" and feel like I've been treading water all month. Some of my commitments will be ending in the next few weeks and I'm hoping that will help. Anyways, I thought I'd pop in and share a summery floral card as I watch it snowing outside.


I stamped a piece of Simon's Cotton Candy Cardstock with Cotton Candy Ink using their Deco Diamonds Background Stamp. I matted this with some of Simon's Black Cardstock and added it to a notecard made from Neenah Desert Storm Cardstock. I stamped the floral images from Simon's Sketched Flowers Stamp Set with MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink and coloured them with Copic Markers. I fussy cut them with Fiskar's Micro Tip Scissors. After adding my sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black Ink I adhered the flowers, popping up the blue flower with foam tape. I finished the card off with some Nuvo Drops.
