Simon Says Stamp New Release "Good Vibes"!

Hello friends!

Lucky for me to have a new stamp (thanks, SSS!) called Center Cut Geometric Pattern Cling Stamp.
 from the new release "Good Vibes" from Simon Says Stamp.
This release has really fun and happy images and designs. 
Happy birthday (2)

 This large Center Cut Geometric Pattern Cling Stamp comes with one extra component than the norm. That is, it has a removable circle stamp in the center.


I wanted to take advantage of this removable element. 
So, I embossed the outer image in white for the background and silver in the circle.  
Happy birthday-002

This was all created in one piece/layer without using a circle die. Love that.

Happy birthday-001   

Of course, MISTI makes this possible for me to create two embossing in one layer without masking or die-cutting.  To add interest and movement, I added an alcohol-inked vellum butterfly.


I added some more colors in a few spots in the background with the Companion Crafter's Pen (Spring Collection).

You can find the Geometric Pattern Cling Stamp here.

Technique Tuesday Feature is Back!

Hello friends!
I hope you are having a great Tuesday! 
I took a break from featuring Technique Tuesday products on a Tuesday and guess what!?
I am back with Technique Tuesday feature again.
Technique Tuesday - Greenhouse Society Collection - Clear Acrylic Stamps - Strawberry
Technique Tuesday - Clear Acrylic Stamps - Strawberry

This card may look simple enough, but thee are a few steps/technique involved.

1: masking the background: I used the die cut as a MASK and then stamped the background in green.  
2. white-embossing and die-cutting on vellum): using heavier vellum (40lbs) seems to do the trick for me. It doesn't warp and is sturdy enough to use as it is.
3. coloring: I applied alcohol ink/markers on front and back of the vellum (mostly on the back).
4. use colored card stock to create the matching sentiment.
5. it's all in the details: splatter, droplets and know, the little things.

thanks (2)

I did strawberry-picking in my local farm many times before and noticed that the flowers are usually white with yellow center and that is how I colored the strawberries.
thanks #1

I love the airiness of vellum gives and it is aptly perfect for a summer card.

Multi-Color Stamping with Distress Oxide

Hello friends! 

I am popping in with a one layer card!
When I first saw this cling stamp....
I thought: "Do I NEED an apple stamp"? It turned out.... I DO! 
I mean, look at the details of this cling stamp! I was amazed after using it.

shop Simon Says Stamp here 

I had a blast adding layers of colors with Distress Oxide.
As you can also tell, I love taking card with the apples! I did all this just yesterday!

you are beautiful inside and out

You can use any markers or watercolor medium to add colors to this fabulous wholesome cling stamp. I love how Distress Oxide mix and blends, so I resorted to use them for my inking today.

you are beautiful inside and out (2)
The shine and textures from the chunky Crystal Clear Embossing Powder is amazing. 

you are beautiful inside and out (3)

Since there are no Mini Cubes for Distress Oxide available in the market, it is slightly tricky to apply every bit of color into certain area of the image (in this case, the apple and leaves).

you are beautiful (2)
After making this card, I realized that this IS the kind of videos that is worth filming....
I know, I know. I should make a video!

However, with some paper towels and one surgical/plastic glove, I was able to manipulate the colors and get it into the right spot. MISTI is also a must for this purpose.

you are beautiful

Big Bold and Beautiful Floral

Hello friends!
I don't know about you, but once in a while, I do love big ,bold and beautiful floral cards!
Today's card is one of those!

I have been meaning to use this stamp set and finally used my scraps to create a bold and bright design.  The ink sprays from Altenew have been awesome for me to create my own colorful card stock. I shared the "secret" before and am gladly share it again....
you are the best-001

1. spray ink on watercolor card stock before going to bed 
2. go to bed and have a good night's sleep
3. the next morning, you've got some color paper waiting for you! 
you are the best-002 

Once you created your own color paper, it is up to you use them to your advantage.
I took an easy route for this card: just stamp the outline and die cut.
you are the best

My color paper may not look all that great, but I try to take bits and pieces of the card stock and turned it into something original and beautiful. To me, this is the joy of card-making.
you are the best-003

The sentiment from Folksy Flower Stamp
For the details, I added Tonic White Blizzard Nuvo Glitter Drops and splatter.
