you are a wonderful friend

Hi there! I'm back with one more card made using the Simon Says Stamp You clear stamp set. 

I used a paper weaving technique I learned from Lisa Spangler in the Pattern Play Online Card Class. The gorgeous papers are from the Dear Lizzy Neopolitan 6x6 paper pad -- it works great to use papers all from the same pad for this technique since they all already coordinate! Once I had it all assembled I rubbed some Picket Fence Distress Stain over the top to tone down the colors a bit.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

you are loved

Hi! I'm back again today to share another card using the Simon Says Stamp You clear stamp set.

Those adorable heart squares are from the Simon Says Stamp Square Sayings clear stamp set.  And I stamped them in some yummy Hero Arts inks -- Soft Cantaloupe, Butter Bar, Pale Tomato and Orange Soda.

That little white heart is covered in white enamel accents...a fun little tip I learned from Kristina Werner. :)

I'll be back soon!

you are the best!

Hi there! I recently purchased the Simon Says Stamp You clear stamp set along with coordinating die and it is quickly becoming one of my favorites! The sentiments are wonderful and it is a great value for only $11. So far I've made three cards with it that I'll be sharing over the next few days.

First up is this square card that uses the negative portion of the die.

I put a subtle strip of patterned paper to show through the letters and then popped up the sentiment strip to give it some dimension.

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow with another card!

BasicGrey: Bow Ties

Hi! Today I've got a couple of cards to share that were created with the BasicGrey Bow Ties collection. This collection is awesome for those masculine cards that are sometimes hard to create!

My first card is made entirely from stickers. The vellum tape stickers are kind of like little strips of washi tape. I love that they are translucent and have a gorgeous matte finish.

KNE-4166 Bow Ties Sticker Elements, cream cardstock, corner rounder, foam adhesive

My next card features some of the fun patterned papers from the 6x6 paper pad along with a bottle cap sticker. And the "best buds" sticker just seemed to top of the card perfectly!

KNE-4165 Bow Ties 6x6 Paper Pad, KNE-4168 Bow Ties Title Stickers, KNE-4180 Bow Ties Bottle Cap Stickers, XHA-CL682 Bow Ties Bam! Clear Stamp Set, blue cardstock, Hero Arts Orange Soda Mid-Tone Shadow Ink, Frayed Burlap Distress Ink, 1" circle punch, foam adhesive

 Have a great day!
