A Bit Of Sparkle 

This week we are showcasing our very own exclusive Simon Says Stamp Products. You don’t have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Who in the world does not like sparkly things? Right? I LOVE anything that sparkles. So this theme was right up my alley. I used my favourite More Spring Flowers stamp set from Simon Says Stamp to make my card.

I stamped the images from More Spring Flowers stamp set and coloured them using Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers. I used two shades of a colour to colour the flowers and leaves. So there is lots of sparkle on the images. They are gorgeous under the light as you can see here.

 I die cut the images using the coordinating die cuts. I adhered the images together to form a cluster.

Then I made a card base using Fog cardstock and spattered some gold watercolour on the card front. I adhered the flower leaves cluster on the bottom left. The big sentiment is Painted Enjoy die cut using gold foil cardstock. The smaller sentiment is from Hello Beautiful stamp set. The sentiment is simply stamped on a strip of white cardstock and adhered below the Painted Enjoy die cut.

Here is the full card and you can see the glitter on the flower leaves cluster.

Hello Weekend!

Welcome back!

Today is day #2 of Clearly Planned release from Taylored Expressions. I have a bright fun card using a new stamp set called Wag More Bark Less stamp set and new die called Hinged Insta Frames.

Those doggies in the Wag More Bark Less stamp set are so darn cute. I love them. There is also a cat version called Cattiude. Being a dog person, I chose the dog stamp set to make my card. Here is my card.

How I made this card:

  1. Card base is made out of Lollipop cardstock.
  2. I randomly stamped the images and sentiment from the Wag More Bark Less stamp set using Sugar Cube ink all over the card front.
  3. I used Prisma color pencil to add shading to the images.
  4. To fill in the gaps, I used the star enamel shapes from Lollipop enamel shapes. This adds texture and dimension to the background.
  5. For the focal point, I die cut the medium hinged insta frame die using Granny Smith cardstock.
  6. I stamped the sentiment on the door of the insta frame and heat embossed the sentiment.
  7. Then I stamped, copic coloured and hand cut out one of the image.
  8. I adhered the image on a white panel that fit the back of the insta frame.
  9. The insta frame is adhered on the top centre of the card front using foam adhesive.
  10. Finally I added Lollipop heart shaped enamel on the insta frame to finish off the card.

Summer Lovin!

Hello everyone, Welcome to my blog post. Hope you had a lovely weekend. I am sharing with you a bright summer lovin card using one of the new stamp set called Super Sweet and coordinating die from the  Clearly Planned May release from Taylored Expressions.  These are not rubber stamps but clear stamps.

Such a cute stamp set. The faces on the images are adorable.  These stamp set and die are designed to be used on planners but I also think they are awesome to be used to make cards. Here is my card using both the stamp set and dies.

Here is how I made this card.

  1. Trim a Sugar Cube cardstock 1/4th size smaller than the card front. That will be 4″ x 5.25″.
  2. Die cut three of each images from the coordinating die using masking paper.
  3. Adhere them randomly on the white panel. Burnish them using bone folder.
  4. Using the mini round sponging tool, I sponged Candied Apple, Ripe Persimmon and Dried Marigold Distress Ink on the panel. I sponged them twice to get good saturation and even blending.
  5. Removed the masks and sprayed the background with mini mister to get the colour moving but not very much. Used paper towel to dabb off the excess water. I still want to keep the white masked areas white. If I keep the masks and spray water, the colour will seep through the mask and contaminate the masked areas.
  6. You could use water brush to do the previous step too.
  7. Then I stamped the coordinating images on the white masked areas. I coloured the images using Zig clean color brush pens.
  8. I used glossy accent to add dimension and texture to some area on the images and left the panel to dry.
  9. I prepared an Oreo card base. Once the panel is dry, I adhered the panel to the card front using adhesive tape.
  10. For the sentiment, I white heat embossed the sentiment from Super Sweet stamp set on a strip of Oreo cardstock and adhered to the card front using foam adhesives.
