Shouting from the Mountain Tops



Good evening! Did you hear the news about the new Friends Release from Simon Says Stamp? I can't say how excited I am about this particular new set - From the Rooftops - SOOOO unique and fun! I can tell I'm going to be using this one lots!


I started off by cutting a Stitched Circle from Smoke Cardstock, then stamped the mountains from From the Rooftops off the bottom edge. I then stamped them on some exclusive SSS Gina K Cardstock, and paper pieced the mountains, then did the same for the snowy tops. Next I die cut a Nested Talk Bubble from black cardstock, and heat embossed the sentiment on it. I added a bit more of the sentiment on a couple small strips of white cardstock.


I then stamped SSS Abstract Triangles Background in Fog Gray ink, then added some gold splatters using my Starry Colors Palette. I added the circle with foam adhesive, and the sentiments with foam adhesive as well for two layers of dimension! Love the clean and graphic feel - and it's PERFECT even for a guy card!

Pattern Paper Valentines - SSS January Card Kit

Good morning! I'm back today with not one, not two, but FOUR more cards that I made using the BRAND NEW January Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp: Favorite Person

For these cards I pretty much just used the pattern paper in the kit, trimming out lots of embellishments from a couple of the pattern papers, then layering them all together on some of the other pattern papers! I layered everything down until I was happy, then picked each arrangement up with Glad Press & Seal, added foam adhesive to the backs, and then turned them back over and adhered! The front panels were cut using Stitched Rectangles, and matted with a tiny bit of white cardstock to help them pop a little. The first pair of cards is a little softer in color, the second two are a little bolder. Otherwise - these are pretty self explanatory! I'll let the pictures speak for themselves! Enjoy! :)











Here is a look at the entire kit contents - you can find it HERE:

Puffy Heart Stickers Galore - SSS January Card Kit

Hello there! I'm stopping by tonight with a little card I made using the BRAND NEW January Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp: Favorite Person! There is a darling stamp set, some lovely papers, a mini ink pad, glitter, and the cutest little puffy stickers! I went a little crazy with those puffy stickers for my first card to share with you!


I die cut several of the three smallest sized Stitched Circles dies from white cardstock, and layered these over some of the pattern paper from the kit. Once I was happy with the polka dot pattern, I added various puffy stickers to the two largest sized circles. I then stamped some of the cute little sentiments from the Really Like You stamp set, trimmed them out, and filled in with them. 


Here is a look at the entire kit contents - you can find it HERE:


The small dots and the sentiments are mounted with foam adhesive, and the largest with the puffy stickers I adhered straight on the cardbase since they have some height with the puffy stickers already.

Cotton Headed Ninny Muggins!



Good morning! Dropping by to share another little card I put together recently using the darling Heffy Doodle Elfish Antics Stamp set! You just can't help cracking up over that sentiment!


I did a simple watercolor wash on a panel of watercolor paper, then once it dried I tore around all four edges.


I used my MISTI to stamp my sentiment, then popped my colored elf in place with a dab of foam adhesive. Finished off with some Nuvo Jewel Drops and some Crystal Glaze on the boots, belt, and stripe on the hat.


I also thought I'd link up with a couple challenges - first up, Simon Says Monday Challenge - Christmas/Winter Holidays:


Also linking up with Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes:
