Simon Says Stamp Fun and Festive October Release…

Are you excited as we get closer and closer to a FUN & FESTIVE Christmas?  I am! I love this time of year for making stuff!  I love that MOD Tree background stampthe bear and the bunny… so cute!

Simon Says Stamp sent me this cute little snowflake to play with for the release.  It’s called the Kadyn Snowflake. It’s one inch in diameter!  I was like, what am I going to do with it?! lol  Put on your thinking cap Pam!  So the challenge was on… looking through my SSS stash I came to this awesome stamp set from last year that I hadn’t used yet and what do you think my brain landed on?  yep, the smaller elements in the set, great for wreath building!  So here’s what I came up with!

The name of the stamp set is Yuletide Holiday and it’s in the store HERE! The sentiment is from this stamp set too!  I used the wreath builder template and Lawn Fawn inks.  A little white gel pen in the poinsettia centers. Very fun! I stapled on the NEW snowflake with the Tiny Attacher.

It’s been raining dogs and cats here for days and nights. I feel like a blob of humidity! lol So thankful I can be in the house stamping, thinking about snow and Christmas! haha Staying warm and dry!

Thanks for stopping by, SHOP the release HERE and holler if you have any questions.  I’ll link you up to everything I used below!

Linking my card to some challenges…

The Merry Christmas Challenge – anything goes

The Paper Players – trees or leaves

All the salutations of the season!  I’ll be back… I have 3 more Memory Box/poppystamps cards ready to share with you this week!

Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Release Party!

Hi everyone!  Welcome to my blog post for the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Party!  You’re invited to join the fun…visit all the blogs linked on the Simon Says Stamp blog HERE!  Click to shop and use your code choice to receive an exclusive gift (several options) with your order!  How awesome is that!!!

I have two cards to share with you today using the NEW exclusive SSS stamp set, Your Greatest Dreams.  I love the variety of scripts used and beautiful quotes and sayings!

I couldn’t resist using this one with the SSS Picture Book Snowman!

When I started looking through my SSS stamp and die sets and saw this cute guy and the snowflakes I thought of Frosty!

I created a background by white heat embossing the Lots of Snowflakes stamp set and inking it with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and the mini ink blending tool.

I had to give him a heart. lol  I die cut him in white, colored the parts with Copic Sketch markers and edged his body with Tumbled Glass ink also.

 

My next card uses another sentiment from the same new set…

What a good reminder to enjoy every day!  As I’m writing this post it’s storming and raining but it’s too late to go out in the rain!  I’m tired! lol

Here I white heat embossed one of the clouds from the SSS Cloudy Sky’s stamp set multiple times.  Then stamped one of the outline stamps from the same set with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink and die cut them with the coordinating die set.  I masked off the area for the sentiment and using the mini ink blending tool, I blended on Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink over the clouds and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink on the bottom.

Isn’t that a gorgeous script though!  I love it!

A clean and simple card with a powerful sentiment/reminder!

Thank you so much for visiting my party blog post today! Enjoy the rest of the party stops! What fun!

Memory Box Be Jolly and Alphine Trees Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends!  Look at this cute bunny from the new Memory Box Be Jolly stamp set. I had fun with it and am looking forward to using the rest of the set and the other new set… a great size for coloring!

I love all the nature dies from Memory Box but I might have to say that this Alpine Trees dies is one of my very favorites of the trees!  I don’t think I could ever pick a favorite, favorite though! lol

I colored with the Gansai Tambi 36 watercolor set for the first time.  I like it!  Even spattered with the white paint in the set and that paint brush I was telling out about in my post before this one.  I did mix a couple greens to get that tree color, oh and a blue and green to get the water, scarf and present colors.  Rather fun and easy to use.

The sentiment is from the set and I stamped it with the MISTI and Ranger Black Archival ink… Happy with this sweet scene!

Linking up to some challenges…

The Merry Christmas Challenge – anything Christmas

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge – sprinkles and splatters (mine is snow)

As You See It Challenge – divided

Folk Dance Die from SSS Friendly Frolic New Release…

Hi everyone!  AWESOME new release up at Simon Says Stamp!  They sent me the Folk Dance die to create with…here’s what I came up with this time around!

I die cut a piece of copy paper to make a stencil…

Used the stencil to ink up a card panel with Picked Raspberry and Peeled Paint  Distress Oxide Inks and the mini ink blending tools. Sprinkled on Clear Embossing powder and heat set.

Then I die cut a card panel of 110# Neenah Solar White and layered/glued it over the top of the inked panel.

Tied on some pink twine…glued that to a top folded card base.

Die cut a Double Stitch Rectangle from poppystamps…inked the interior cut with Peeled Paint Oxide ink…

Die cut SSS Painted Thanks die two dies from the same white and glued them together and mounted them to the rectangle with mounting tape.

Have fun checking out the NEW RELEASE HERE!  

A big thanks for visiting my blog today and thanks for your wonderful comments too!  I appreciate them so much and love hearing from you!

Simon Says Stamp NEW Release Good Vibes!!!

Cute or what?!!!  This pup has the right idea for staying cool this Summer!

Simon Says Stamps sent me this super cute stamp set to create with from their new release Good Vibes. So I set to Copic coloring!

The name of this set is Summer Cuddly Critters, you can check it out HERE.

I just had to grab the mirror silver cardstock for the ‘shades’.  So funny… when you hold the card up, you can see yourself in them, just like the real thing!

Super easy card really… a Lawn Fawn Stitched sun die… the MFT Beach die set and the Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangle die that I love to use!

I stamped in the MISTI with Ranger Archival black ink for the sentiments and Memento Tuxedo Black for the images I colored.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy shopping the new release HERE!  Some fab stuff again!  yay!
