Simon Says Stamp

Featuring Simon Says Stamp products

I can always count on you

Hi everyone!

I’ve had a crazy busy week with no time to get into my craft room, not even when my Simon Says Stamp order showed up!

I had a bit of time this evening and here’s what I came up with using my brand new Flickering Butterflies die from Simon Says Stamp. I confess I had a little buyer’s remorse about getting this instead of a different die in the collection, but as soon as I saw it in real life, I was so happy I got it!

I added a couple of layers of white cardstock to the back of the die cut piece and then adhered a panel I made with my neglected Distress Stains. I used card instead of foam as I didn’t want to raise the panel too much – It has made the card quite heavy – may be one to send in the UK rather than overseas!

The Thanks die is also by SSS and the sentiment stamp is from Reverse Confetti.

Spring tulip heart

Happy Friyay all!

I’ve been practising with my Prismacolor pencils again today. I’m really enjoying learning how to use them… it may soon be time to splash out on a bigger set!

Anyway, today I used the beautiful tulip heart stamp from a new Simon Says Stamp set… yep! I bought an entire set for that stamp! Such fun to colour! You may be seeing this again before spring is out! I decided to play along with the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge so used the challenge design and added a sentiment from an older SSS set plus some beautiful handmade paper from Tonic Studios which I got this week. I’m very impressed with the quality of the paper and it cut very well with a craft knife!

Birthday circles

Hi there!

It’s been a while since I played with this cool Simon Says Stamp background stamp and I was also wanting to play with my distress markers again… so I sat down at my table… et voila! Another birthday card for my depleted stocks!

I heat embossed the background stamp with white embossing powder and then added the colour. I started smooshing at first but then I decided I wanted more control over the colouring and applied the watered-down marker colour using my brush… and a finger!!

I cut the panel down and added a glittery new-to me sentiment, also from SSS.

You totally did it

Hi everyone!

It’s been quite cloudy here so I decided to pull out some sunny Distress Oxide inks to play with today.

After creating the blended background, I added some water speckles and then die cut a Simon Says Stamp circle and sentiment. I used another scrap of card to blend some yellow ink for the fringe (cut using a Mama Elephant die).

The embossed sentiment is by My Favourite Things.

Easter Egg Wreath

Happy Easter to all of you who celebrate this day!

As I’ve mentioned before, I love Easter crafty supplies – it’s just a shame that the Easter crafty season is so short! I’m happy to say that I sent out all the Easter cards I made this year!

Today, I’m sharing one more Easter card – this is the one I made for my mum using a sweet Nellie Snellen wreath stamp and a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp. I coloured it with my Twinkling H2Os and then added a few Studio Katia gems to finish it off!

Although I try not to buy Easter sets, every year, a few break my resolve. This year, I couldn’t resists the Newton’s Nook Newton’s Easter set. Isn’t it cutte!

I used my twinkling H2Os to colour the image and then applied some distress ink – using a heart stencil from Simon Says Stamp. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.
