Simon Says Stamp: The Color of Fun

Hey! Did you see the new Simon Says Stamp's coming! June 11th. I'll be shopping, will you?!?!! I recently was gifted one of the dies in the release. I sat down to create with it right away. Wanna see?

The new Relax die is so simple, trendy and spot on to what I LOVE working with! Beach themes are every where right now so I jumped right in with that in mind.

 I created my own wave mask and did a few varied layers with Sea Glass ink. It's very faint on camera but very cool in real life. Next, I used the die and mounted some patterned paper behind it from Crate Paper's Poolside collection

Finally, I layered more paper, cardstock shapes and a frame to complete my card.

This card is perfect for the summer. What a great sentiment for an end of the school year gift or to send someone off on an amazing vacation or to help someone feel better....

So, what do you think of the new relax die? Remember, if you want this die, or any new Simon Says Stamp product, it will be available June 11th.

Disclaimer: I was given this die but all opinions are my own. I was not paid for this post. :) As of the date of this post I am not a SSS affiliate. You click, you buy, I make nothing. ;)

Ellen Hutson & Avery Elle Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone! I'm SO excited for today's blog hop! This collaboration set is amazing and I can't wait to see how all of the talented designers used it today and how YOU will use it! To create my card I started by stamping, die cutting and coloring several of the images from Peek a Boo Pals Camp Wanna Stamp (love that name!). It's available HERE with stamps and dies or HERE with just stamps.  Next, I blended and splashed ink on a piece of cardstock to create the background. Then, I stamped the lightening bugs and added their glow, along with coloring their wings white. TIP: I used a Q-Tip to add just a small amount of Distress Oxide to make the bugs glow.  Finally, I added the sentiment and adhered everything to a card base. This set is amazing and it's PACKED full of images! There are still more images that I can't wait to stamp. Check out the set... Next up is Heather Campbell . She is SO talented, I'm sure you'll love what she created. Finally, it wou

Mama Elephant: October Anniversary Stampede!

It's Mama Elephant Birthday Stampede time!  This is so awesome, right? I'm so excited you've joined me from Stephanie's blog! Today I'm a sharing a lot of stamping goodness! Now that I'm counting, my card uses 4 new Mama Elephant stamp sets ! This card all started with the sentiment. My kids are always buzzing around the house singing and one of their favorite is Everything is Awesome (Lego Movie anyone?). :) I started with a faint pencil line to create AWESOME from the new Block Party Letters . I colored them in with Copics and then did some creative masking and stamping from Happy Everything to add the beginning of the sentiment. Next I stamped the penguin and hat (from the new Artic Penguins ), colored them and die cut them for a perfect cut. The soft, grey striped background was created using the new Boutique Borders . All stamps and dies can be purchased NOW at the Mama Elephant store HERE . Next up? The very talented JJ Bolton !
