Simon Says Stamp The Color of Fun Release!!!

Hi everyone!

colorfun

Today is release day for Simon Says Stamp's The Color of Fun product line! I have to say, this one might be my favourite yet!

Here it is:



Today I'm sharing a couple of cards and will (hopefully) be back tomorrow to share a couple more.

For today's cards I focused on using Simon's new Rockin' Roller Coaster Die and my next post will focus on the new Many Thanks Stamp Set.


For my first card I used the Rockin' Roller Coaster Die as it was intended to be used. First I created my background using Simon's new Wisteria, Hollyhock, and Duckling inks with Ranger's Round Ink Blending Tools. I used Simon's new Firework Bursts Dies on the background and added some sparkle with Ranger's Stardust Stickles. I die cut the Rockin' Roller Coaster Die from grey cardstock and found I got the best cut using a shim of cardstock below my cutting plates. (It made all the little pieces come out more easily). I adhered the rollercoaster to my inked up panel using Ranger's Multi Medium Matte and the cars with foam adhesive. I then added some sparkle to the cars with a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush. The sentiment is from Simon's new Cone Building Stamp Set.


For my second card, I die cut just the bottom of the rollercoaster structure into strips of Neenah White Cardstock that I had inked up with a number of Simon's new dye inks (Hollyhock, Melon, Duckling, Jellybean, Spring Rain, Blue Jay, and Wisteria). I then adhered the pieces to my card front. I die cut Simon's new Sketch Star Die from both white and black cardstock, adhering the black outline to the full white star. I stamped my sentiment created from Simon's new Grunge Alphabet Stamp Set, and adhered the star to my card with foam adhesive. I then added Glossy Accents over the black star outline and finished things off with various enamel dots.


 Supplies:



Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you enjoy The Color of Fun release as much as I do!
