SSS Cheer and Joy Release: Christmas Kaleidoscope

Hi everyone!

Today is reveal day for the Simon Says Stamp Cheer and Joy Release and there are so much fabulous new products!


Here's the full release:



Simon sent me a few goodies to play with and the card I'm sharing today was so fun and relaxing to colour:


I stamped Simon's new Christmas Kaleidoscope Stamp with MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink on to Neenah White Cardstock before colouring it with Copic Markers. I adhered the panel to the front of a notecard  and added some glitter pen and Glossy Accents highlights. I white heat embossed a sentiment from Simon's Christmas Squad Stamp Set on black cardstock and adhered it to my card with foam tape.

That's it for me today.

SSS Best Day

Hi everyone!

I'm popping by to share a card featuring the Simon Says Stamp Deco Weave Stencil and their Birthday Word Mix 1 Stamp Set.

Using the Deco Weave Stencil on an angle I ink blended three shades of Ranger Distress Oxide Ink: 
Faded Jeans, Salty Ocean, and Tumbled Glass to create an ombre affect. I stamped a sentiment from Simon's Birthday Word Mix 1 Stamp Set using Versafine Onyx Black Ink, matted the panel with a piece of black cardstock before adding it to a piece of Island Blue Cardstock. I finished things off with some beautiful Lucy's Cards Sequins.

I stamped the background stamp on a piece of Neenah Desert Storm Cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black Ink before colouring some of the circles in with Prismacolor Pencils. I die cut the piece with one of Simon's Wonky Rectangle Dies and splattered some Distress Picket Fence Paint. Once dry I adhered the panel to a notecard covered with lavender cardstock. I diecut a scrap piece of piece of black cardstock with one of Simon's Nested Circle Dies, white heated embossed the sentiment from the CZ Design Birthday Sweets Stamp Set, and adhered it to the card. I finished it off with a variety of sequins from Lucy's Cards.

Hi everyone!

SSS October 2019 Card Kit: Miss You & Giveaway

Hi everyone,

I'm popping by to share another card featuring the Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit.


For today's card I wanted to focus on the My Mind's Eye My Heritage 6x6 Patterned Paper and the Pebbles Inc Foiled Stickers.


I thought the map patterned paper would be great for a 'miss you' card. I paired it with another piece of the patterned paper before spelling out 'miss you' with the alpha stickers. I die cut a couple of Simon's Mini Hearts from a sheet of the Tim Holtz Metallic Cardstock and coloured them with Flamingo Alcohol Ink before adding them to my card.

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!  


The wonderful folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the  Simon Says Stamp Store! All you have to do is take out your crafty supplies, make something following this week’s prompt, and add a link in the Inlinkz at the bottom of the challenge post!

The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your crafty makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!


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. :)
