Simon Says Stamp One of a Kind Release Blog Hop!


Hello everybody,

I am so thrilled to join Simon Says Stamp for their One of a Kind release Blog Hop. This release is awesome with some gorgeous stamp sets, innovative dies, two new ink pads and embellishments.

This is my first release blog hop with Simon Says Stamp. Squeal! So happy to be invited for the blog hop. Thank you so much for the invitation and generosity Heidi.

I have three cards using one of the new stamp sets and coordinating dies called So Cool.

Β Β 

My first card using the popsicle border stamp image and coordinating dies.

I trimmed five white cardstock to 1″ x 4.25″ in size. Sponged each of the strip with Simon Says Stamp dye inks – Audrey Blue, Melon, Jellybean, Hollyhocks and Sunshine. Then stamped the popsicles border image using black ink on each of the strip. Then used the coordinating dies to die cut them all out. To add some depth to the images, I used copic markers in a slightly darker shade in certain areas of the image. I adhered these on a fog wonky stitched rectangle panel using foam adhesives. I adhered this panel on a white card base. The sentiment is simply stamped using black ink, trimmed and adhered as shown. Then I added glossy accents to some of the popsicles.


The second card is a bit more artsy. It is simple easy to make and I love it.

I stamped the popsicles using Antique Linen distress ink and watercoloured them using Zig Clean Color brush markers. Once dry, I die cut them out using the coordinating dies. One a white card base, I spattered Black Soot distress inks. Then stamped the sentiment using grey dye ink in the middle of the card front. Then adhered the popsicles using foam adhesives. To add texture and interest, I added some Nuvo Jewel and Crystal drops and sequins from Vintage Chic sequins.

Finally, this is my favourite of all three I should say. You will know why seeing the card. I love bright colours period!

I die cut a few popsicles out of masking paper and adhered randomly on the card front. I burnished them using the bone folder because I sponged Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue and Soft Navy dye inks. Soft Navy adds depth to a rather flat Audrey Blue background. I then removed the masks. Stamped the popsicles image using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink. Then I coloured the popsicles using copic markers. I also added some highlights using Sakura white gelly roll pen and shimmer using Wink of Stella clear shimmer. The sentiment is simple white heat embossed on black strip of cardstock and adhered using foam adhesive. Added some Sparkly Clear sequins to the card to finish it off. I love the summer colours and contrast on this card.

Simon Says Stamp is giving away $25 coupon at every stop along the hop. So make sure you leave comment on all the stops in this blog hop. Winners will be announced on Monday.

      Its so weird~ Kansas is usually really hot in June and its been in the low 80’s the past few days. It will be in the 100’s again in a few days. Feel worried for those on the west coast, they’re just not used to heat like this.
