simon says stamp celebrate

 A really happy & fantastic new collection of stamps, dies, stencils and more just hit the Simon Says Stamp shop...the Celebrate collection!

Everything is fabulous as always but there is one set already destined to become my absolute favorite, Flower Power! Seriously my brain is just bursting with cards I want to make with these stamps, dies & stencils!

For this card I used the stencil with some of my favorite Distress Oxides (Carved Pumpkin, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Salvaged Patina & Twisted Citron). I love the two color blends!

Then I stamped the outline layer over the ink blending, off setting it just a bit because I love the wonky look!

I grabbed the stencil again and ink blended the flower middles with Distress Oxide Black Soot. I find that the Black Soot is the best black to go over Oxide ink blending.

After letting the ink dry for a bit, I die cut the flowers. 

I stamped & embossed a sentiment on one flower.

And I adhered all the flowers to the card in a grid pattern, mounting some with foam adhesive and some with glue. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs!!!

mft tropical toucans

There is a new collection of adorable Jenoblade stamp designs hitting the MFT shop today and they are the cutest!!!

The Tropical Toucans set is just adorable and one of my favorite new sets!

For this card I masked off a section at the top of my card and ink blended Distress Oxide Salvaged Patina & Twisted Citron. Then with the masking tape still in place (and after a little drying time), I stamped the tropical flower bundle off of each edge. I find Distress Oxide Black Soot is the best for stamping over Distress Oxide ink blending unless the blending is super duper dry.

After removing the masking, I stamped the sentiment and added a little faux ink splatter with a black pen.

I stamped, die cut and colored one of the toucans. I just love them!!! And I used foam tape to adhere it to the card front. Here are the Copic colors I used:

  • body - C5, C6 & C8
  • beak - YR16, YR07, RV06 & RV09

Definitely pop over to the MFT blog to see more projects with the adorable Jenoblade sets!

mft you are not alone card kit

The MFT You Are Not Alone Card Kit just hit the shop and it's so beautiful!

Yesterday I shared a clean & simple sympathy card and today I want to share something a little more playful!

I die cut nine of one bloom with the Show of Support die set and ink blended three combinations:

I arranged the blooms in a 3x3 grid on my card front and used a black marker to color a circle behind each one before gluing them down. Lazy crafter hack, LOL!

Then I stamped a sentiment from the You Are Not Alone set under the grid and added a little faux black splatter with a pen.

I highly recommend heading over to the MFT blog to see more of this gorgeous kit!

Thanks for stopping by!

handmade cards to show support with mft stamps

There is a beautiful new card kit coming to MFT Stamps tomorrow and it's perfect for creating cards to show support to your loved ones. Do you want a little sneak peek? Well keep reading!

For this card I die cut a square window and stamped the sentiment below with the You Are Not Alone stamp set.

I used the new Soft Stripes paper pad as the background of the square window and added die cut flowers to the right side with the Show of Support die set. I die cut the flowers from Cotton Candy & Red Hot cardstock and added a little shading with Red Hot ink. The stems & leaves are cut from white cardstock and inked with Jalapeno Popper.

Head over to the MFT blog to see more and come by tomorrow to see another card with the You Are Not Alone card kit!

mft wings & wishes

The MFT Stamps March 2024 release is available NOW!!! There are so many adorable sets to check out but before you go, I have a quick card to share with the Wings & Wishes set...

This set has super cute little gnomes but when I saw the dandelions, I couldn't wait to pair it with the Wish Big die. I love a big word, LOL!

To create this card I arranged the stamps in my MISTI stamping tool. Then I stamped one white panel and one ink blended panel (with Distress Oxide Seedless Preserves, Salvaged Patina & Squeezed Lemonade).

Then I die cut the ink blended panel with the Wish Big die. I die cut the Wish Big again twice from white cardstock scraps and adhered the three layers of each letter together for a little dimension.

Next I adhered the letters onto the stamped white panel, lining up the dandelion designs.

Pop over to the MFT blog when you have a minute to see more of the March and maybe even shop a little😉

Thanks for stopping by!

mft you bring sunshine

Just one more day until the MFT Stamps March 2024 release hits the shop and I have another sneak peek to share with you!

This is the You Bring Sunshine set. Isn't that bunny adorable?!

I stamped, die cut and colored the bunny. I also borrowed a few clouds from the You Make Moo So Happy set.

The background is just a simple ink blended circle (with Distress Oxide Salvaged Patina and Cracked Pistachio).

There's more to see on the MFT blog today so stop by when you have a minute!

mft ear for you

There are only two days left until the MFT Stamps March release! Have you been catching the sneak peeks? It's all so cute and I've got another peek to share...

This sweet little elephant is from the new Ear for You set! Isn't it just the cutest?!!

I stamped the elephant to the side and a little wonky so it would look like it was holding the Essential Hello die cut. I colored it with shades of gray Copic markers and then adhered the "hello" on top. BTW, the "hello" is cut from Cotton Candy cardstock and polka dotted with a marker.

To finish I stamped the sentiment underneath the die cut word and added a little faux splatter with a pen.

Thanks for stopping by! Pop over to the MFT blog when you have a minute to see more sneaks of the March release!
