SSS June Card Kit Happy Florals Card & GIVEAWAY!

Hi everyone!

I finally have a card to share featuring the beautiful new Simon Says Stamp June Card Kit


This month's kit has been so fun to work with, with the gorgeous Beautiful Flowers Stamps and ModaScrap Fly & Scrap Papers. The Distress Resist Spray has been really fun to use and try different techniques with.


For today's card I white heat embossed the large floral image and a sentiment from Simon's new Beautiful Flowers Stamp Set onto their brand new Peacock Teal Cardstock. I then used a small paint brush to fill in the flowers and 'HAPPY' with Distress Resist Spray. Once dried, I matted the panel with some of Simon's White Cardstock and added it to a notecard made from Simon's Smoke Gray Cardstock. I finished things off by flicking some more Distress Resist Spray over the entire card. I love the look of it so much I'm hoping to make a whole card set with different colours.




The Simon Says Stamp June Card Kit sells for $34.99 USD + shipping. If you'd like to receive this kit and future kits for $29.99 USD + shipping per month, you can SUBSCRIBE HERE.

Heidi, owner of Simon Says Stamp, has given me an extra Simon Says Stamp June Card Kit to pass on to one of you! Just leave a comment on any or all of my June Card Kit  posts and I'll announce a winner Friday May 25th.

See you soon,

SSS Sectional Heat Embossing with Simon's New Sending Sunshine Release

Hi everyone!


I'm popping by to share another idea for using Simon's new Bohemian Lace Stamp that just came out as part of their Sending Sunshine Release. In case you missed yesterday's post here's a quick look at the stitched cards I made using this same stamp:



For today's cards I stamped the Bohemian Lace Stamp on Neenah Desert Storm Cardstock with VersaMark Ink. I added different colours of embossing powder to certain areas of the image one at a time (removing it from places I didn't want it with a paint brush) before heating the entire panels. The sentiments from  Simon's new Wreath Greetings and Four Seasons Sayings Stamp Sets were also heat embossed. I used both Simon's Nested Circles Dies and their Luminary Circles Die to get the right sized matting I wanted for the second card. I also finished that one off with some Doodlebug Lily White Sprinkles.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope to back soon with some cards featuring the Simon Says Stamp June Card Kit!

SSS Sending Sunshine Release & Bohemian Lace Stitched Cards

Hi everyone!

Simon Says Stamp's Sending Sunshine Release is now live and features fabulous summery stamps, dies, stencils, sequins, and Suzy P's fun paintable prints.


I have a couple of cards to share today but first here's the full release (affiliate links used at no extra cost to you):



For the cards I'm sharing today I wanted to focus on the beautiful new Bohemian Lace Background Stamp. As soon as I saw this stamp my mind went to the possibilty of adding some stitching. I stamped it on two different shades of Simon's grey cardstock: Slate and Fog with coordinating inks for a tone-on-tone look. I used my paper piercer and a Sizzix Mini Secret Weapon Tool to poke holes where I wanted to put my stitching. After adding the stitching, I cut the panels down to size, added some white matting, and adhered them to Simon's Lavender and Sea Glass cardstock. I finished both cards off with some of Lucy's Abram's beautiful sequins. The sentiments are from Simon's new Wreath Greetings and Four Seasons Sayings Stamp Sets.

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be by tomorrow to share another fun way to use the Bohemian Lace Stamp so be on the look out for that!

Happy Mother's Day

Hi everyone!

Just stopping by to wish everyone a Happy Mother's Day!


For today's card I used the Concord & 9th Blooms Fill-In Stamp Set along with some Simon Says Stamp Inks to create the background. Altenew's Bold Alphabet Die Set was used to spell out Mom and the letters were adhered to a strip of vellum with foam in between to add some dimension. The tiny Jasmine Garden Flowers and Rainbow Jewel centers are from Little Things by Lucy.

I hope today is special day for you...whether you are celebrating your mom, being celebrated, or remembering your mom.

Much love,
Sarah

SSS Alcohol Ink Hearts

Hi everyone!

Today I'm stopping by to share three cards I made using different Simon Says Stamp heart dies and Alcohol Inks. Each card started with a piece of Neenah White Cardstock die cut with one of Simon's Stitched Square Dies.

For this first card, I die cut Simon's Corbel Heart Die into the stitched square panel and backed it with a piece of Stick It Adhesive. I die cut the same heart from a piece of Yupo Paper covered with Alcohol Inks. I took the little pieces from there and put them into the openings of the white panel. The white heat embossed sentiment is from Simon's Kind Flowers Stamp Set and the Sequins and Jewels are from Little Things From Lucy's Cards. The sentiment was adhered with Darice Adhesive Strips and the square panel has fun foam behind it to add more dimension.



This next card was created with mostly the same supplies. The hearts were diecut using Simon's Clipping Heart Die. For the heart borders I diecut a piece of glitter paper.


My third card features the Simon Says Stamp Heart of Roses Die and, along with Alcohol Ink-covered Yupo Paper, it was also die cut from DCWV Gold Foil Paper and pieced together.


Supplies:



That's it for me today!
Hope you all have a great day!
