Bears and Hearts

Good morning! I'm sharing another couple of cards I made with a fun die from Simon Says Stamp One of a Kind Release, the adorable Picture Bear Wafer Dies, again cut from felt! {{{I used these same dies with different colors of felt in THIS post HERE}}} 


This time I cut the bears out of two shades of brown felt, and again swapped out the pieces in reverse.


I added a die cut heart using Wonky Stitched Hearts, and added a sentiment from Loving Heart to each one. 


Added some fun pattern paper die cut with Wonky Rectangles and a bit of jute twine to finish these off!

Galaxy and Giraffe - Neat and Tangled New Release

Good morning! Have you been seeing all the darling projects with some of the new Neat and Tangled Birthday Release?!?!? Well...last week I made a few galaxy backgrounds while at a friend's house crafting, so I decided to put one of them to use with that darling little giraffe from the new Wild Ones stamp set!

(((NOTE: I have had MANY requests to do a video tutorial for galaxy backgrounds - I promise I will do that soon! I didn't get it done before getting my 3 year old niece for the week, so filming videos is a little tougher right now - but I plan on working on it next week for sure if possible!)))


I am so addicted to galaxy backgrounds right now - SOOO fun! I don't know about anyone else, but I feel like I am totally screwing them up the entire time I am doing the watercoloring. Then, you get to the part where you add the splatters of white and gold - and all of a sudden it is AMAZING!


I colored the giraffe from Wild Ones with Warm Gray Copics so it would look like it was standing in the dark in the shadows, and die cut it with the coordinating Wild Ones Coordinating Dies. I added some stars from part of Seeing Stars Dies, and a sentiment from Origami Map heat embossed on a strip of white cardstock. The giraffe is mounted with foam adhesive, as well as the sentiment. A few white gel pen accents on the giraffe finish this card off!

SSS September Card Kit - Magical Unicorns!

Hello! The new "Best Birthday" September Card Kit for Simon Says Stamp is live! It really is quite a magical card kit! I couldn't seem to quit with this one, so here are a couple more cards I made with it:


This first card mostly focuses on the fun Doodlebug Pattern paper - not to mention that DARLING sentiment from the included stamp kit - Best Ever! I die cut a square from one of the pieces of pattern paper, mounted it over the stamped sentiment on a Stitched Banner, then added some silver thread wrapped around the top and a few of the enamel heart stickers.


And then there was this one piece of pattern paper that I just couldn't help using, and it almost made the card all on it's own!


I trimmed the pattern paper down, leaving a slight border so it would fit on a 5x5 card, then stamped a sentiment from Best Ever on the bottom. I then added Glossy Accents to the clouds, purple portions of the castle, and the trees - and sparkly Stickles to the rainbow, unicorn hair and hooves, the brick road, and portions of the castle as well. It was a simple way to make your pattern paper stand on it's own, but have a little more flair than just a plain piece of paper slapped on a white cardbase. Haha!

SSS September Card Kit - Lots of Hearts!

Hello! The new "Best Birthday" September Card Kit for Simon Says Stamp has released! It really is quite a magical card kit! Here are a couple cards I made with it:


For the first card, I featured one of the fun Jillibean Soup Shaker Tags with an included insert in the kit - filled with lots of fun Pretty Pink Posh sequins. Stamped some sentiments on the tag using the included stamp kit - Best Ever, added a bit of pattern paper, some of the enamel heart stickers, and a bow of jute twine to the top, then mounted with foam adhesive over a kraft card base with some white paint splatters.


The next card is as bright and colorful as they come!


I started off by using Wonky Stitched Hearts to die cut a negative of part of a heart in the front of a white card base, then added some of the fun Doodlebug Pattern paper behind the window. Sentiment from Best Ever was heat embossed in white on a small Stitched Banner in black, then I added lots of the fun little enamel stickers to embellish!

Pineapples on Plaid

Good morning! I'm stopping by this morning to share one last card I made with some BRAND NEW release stamps from Ink Blots Shop, this one using many of the same sets I used on my first card I shared HERE.


I again began by stamping and layering together the pineapples from the adorable new Fruit Salad stamp set. There are lots of layer options and faces, arms, and legs - but I went with a slightly more realistic feel for my pineapples. I used several colors of Altenew ink, and did some rock and roll technique to get color variation on the base layer. I used the Plaid Background again, only this time I heat embossed it in white on my background, then mounted the pineapples over the top with foam adhesive. Added a little hello using Simple Sentiments and heat embossing it on a strip of black cardstock.


This release is celebrating Ink Blot's One Year (about) Anniversary!
*Some favorite stamp sets have been restocked
*The Tiny Bubbles Stamp Set is only $5

Hello Friend - Ink Blots Hello Lovely

Good morning! I'm stopping by this morning to share yet another card I made with some BRAND NEW release stamps from Ink Blots Shop, this time using Hello Lovely!


So much fun to stamp these girls and choose the face to add as well - and they lined up so easily and perfectly! I did some simple coloring with Copics, then die cut three small circles out of a panel of white cardstock. I fussy cut out the girls, leaving extra on the bottom to attach them behind my window. I stamped my sentiment in the bottom right corner, then foam mounted the entire panel on a cream colored card base for just a touch of soft contrast.

You're a Star Shaker Card

Good morning! Stopping by this morning with another card using the Simon Says Stamp Encouraging Words release! There are lots of fun new stamps, dies, stencils - and I spotted a coordinating die to a previously released stamp set too!



Today's card actually uses the negative cut of You're a Star wafer die from THIS card I posted a couple days ago!


I die cut the panel using Wonky Rectangles, then layered a strip of Bright Yellow cardstock on a panel of Royal Purple. the shaker is filled with sparkly Pretty Pink Posh Iridescent Mini Star Confetti (what else?!?!?) and a few larger star confetti finish off the outside of the card.

Color Me Mine - Reverse Confetti August Blog Hop

Good morning! stopping by today for the monthly Reverse Confetti blog hop! This is a non-release month, so instead of showcasing new products, we are sharing projects using already released items - and this month choosing a fun color combo with RC inks and cardstocks! Make sure and leave a comment before you leave for a chance to win a $15 gift card to Reverse Confetti!

My color combo that I chose to work with was Peach, Iced Aqua, and Brick - inspired by THIS pin on Pinterest. Here is the card I made with this color combo:


I used all 3 ink colors to stamp a pattern using Elemental Stripes, then stamped a sentiment over the top using Sentimental Essentials. I also added a tiny add on sentiment from Banner in Bloom - masking it to fit around the bottom of the "y" in birthday. Finished off by framing it with an Iced Aqua frame cut with All Framed Up!


Here is a peek at the products that I used on my projects today! All photos are linked to the Reverse Confetti Store!
