5K Subscriber Giveaway! | 10 Cards 1 Kit | Simon Says Stamp June Card Kit 2019 | Leafy Frames

For your 1st chance to win, leave a comment here on my blog telling me what your favorite holiday is to create cards for. For you 2nd chance to win, go over to my YouTube channel, hit the thumbs up button and leave a comment telling me your favorite art medium to use on your cards.  Check back on my blog on Friday, June 14, 9am Chicago time to see if you won. I’m going to randomly select a winner. International subscribers are welcome to enter the giveaway.

Thank you for your support, the lovely comments you send me, and your kindness!! I’ve been creating videos for over 3 years, and I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of it. I love sharing with you the cards I create! It’s a hobby that involves a lot of fun products, some basic tools and–my favorite–art supplies. As I’ve mentioned before, I love creating these tiny works of art to mail out and brighten someone’s day!

Also, at the beginning of my video I show of few pictures of my craft room, aka my dining room. I don’t have an extra room in my house to use as a craft room, but the dinning room works out great–I have a really big table, I can work on my cards in between cooking in the kitchen, and I get to be near my family. The down side is we don’t eat in there anymore except on major holidays. I try to keep it tidy because it’s visible when company stops by. I’ve mentioned in my past video’s about the gorgeous peonies blooming outside of my craft room windows, and I wanted to share a little glimpse of those too since they are blooming now! The two book cases on either side of my windows house all my supplies, and in my opinion, there’s nothing prettier to look at than art supplies–well, it runs a close second place to my peonies.

The cards I’m showing you today are from Simon Says Stamp’s June card kit. It’s called, “Leafy Frames.” I love the stamps from this kit, and I had so much fun using the products from this kit to design these cards. Links to most of the supplies I used are listed below.

Happy Easter to you all! I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend! I’ve finally published my 10 Cards, 1 Kit video using Simon Says Stamp’s limited edition card kit. This kit was packed with pastel fun!! I loved all the Easter Bunny images and the cute sentiment stamps!

I am publishing this super late because my father in law passed away a few weeks ago. We will be missing him greatly this weekend when we get together as a family to celebrate Easter.

10 Cards, 1 Kit | Simon Says Stamp March Card Kit 2019 | Lucky Rainbow

Hi crafty friends! I hope your weekend is off to a great start! I’m excited to show you all the cards I designed with Simon Says Stamp’s March card kit. The largest of the two stamp sets in this kit is called “Amazing,” and that’s exactly what I thought of it. I love geometric shape stamps, and the circles from this set has lots of fun patterns to them.

The small stamp set is called “Wooly Lucky,” and it is St. Patrick’s Day themed. I don’t usually send out happy St. Patrick’s Day cards, but the stamp set was sure fun to play with. I love the llama image in this set.

Image1

Card #1: Diagonal Flowers Card

I really love the circle image I used on this first card. It looks like a rose to me, so I used it that way. I stamped two flowers on a piece of white cardstock and die cut the center circle with a faux stitched circle die to make it a little smaller. I popped it up with foam squares between the larger flowers to give the card some dimension. I drew in my own leaves and cut it out on a diagonal. I used a piece of Doll Pink cardstock behind it, and heat embossed my sentiment with white embossing powder.

IMG_7148

Card #2: Rainbows & Dots

This was a fast card to put together. I stamped out all the solid circle images with the Lucky green mini ink cube around my sentiment. I also stamped out a few black circles to match the black sentiment. I added a few green pearls and stars from the Lucky Charms sequin mix–loved this mix of sequins!

IMG_7153

IMG_7156

Card #3: Rainbows & Unicorns

I knew I had to use some of the Doodlebug stickers to make a birthday card for my daughter. She loves rainbows and unicorns, so I turned this card into a birthday card by adding my own birthday die cut. I love the sticker from this kit–great on card fronts as well as on the insides of the cards. Decorating the insides of your cards makes them extra special in my opinion. It doesn’t have to be elaborate, but it does add a lot more fun.

IMG_7157

IMG_7159

Card #4: Wonky Flowers

I love the look of colored pencils on dark cardstocks! I stamped out these circles stamps with white pigment ink first, and then I colored over the images with polychromos pencils. I then stamped them again–I made sure to keep the stamps on the door of my Mini Misti. I used clear embossing ink this time and poured on some white embossing powder. I also white heat embossed my sentiment. A few white Nuvo Drops across the panel helped brighten it up a little.

IMG_7160

IMG_7162

Card #5: Wooly Lucky Llama Card

I had to color in this little llama with my medium-of-choice–colored pencils. I used more of the pattern paper and cardstock from this kit behind him. I love how the yellow circle die cut really makes the llama stand out as the focus of this card.

IMG_7163

IMG_7165

Card #6: Rainbow Llama Card

I thought i’d go all out for this card and color an Irish scene behind the llama including some purple Irish heather. I used my softest shades of Copic markers to color a rainbow behind him. I didn’t want the rainbow taking over the show.  I also colored in the llama with soft earth tone Copics. I think this card it my favorite of the lot.

IMG_7166

IMG_7168

Card #7: Rainbow Circle Die-Cuts

I have a very eclectic assortment of circle dies. Sometime I want to purchase an infinity set of circle dies without stitches or anything–just circles. However, I used what I had to cut out my white heat embossed circle images. I used Distress Oxides to color them in. I didn’t put them on my card in rainbow order, but all of the colors are there. I used foam squares behind my sentiment as well as behind some of the circles.

IMG_7169

IMG_7172

Card #8: St. Patrick’s Day Shaker Card

I used a tag die from my stash to partially die cut a window in my green leaf cardstock. I made this into a little shaker window and placed another tag over it. I love this little Irish girl sticker and placed her on the tag. No coloring went in to the creation of this card, but I love how it turned out!

IMG_7173

Card #9: Sunflower Card

I really love the sentiments from this set. They are encouraging, substantial and just fun! The one I stamped on this card it my favorite. I used two of the circle stamps to create what I hope look like sunflowers and stamped them across this panel. I also added a few small circle stamps to add lightness to the panel. After all my stamping was done, I used a wonky stitched die to cut out the sentiment. I matted it with more orange peel cardstock and popped up the panel with foam tape.

IMG_7175

 

IMG_7177

Card #10: Purple Fireworks Card

This was another quick and fun card to put together. I wanted the circle stamps to look like fireworks and confetti this time. I used more of the blue violet cardstock from the kit as well as a piece of the purple rainbow pattern paper. I stamped out my circles on a piece of white cardstock and matted it with blue violet cardstock. I chomped the corners to soften them. To make the sentiment really pop and not get lost on this busy panel, I heat embossed it with more white embossing powder on blue violet cardstock and then cut it out with a banner die.

IMG_7179Here is the video I created showing how I made these cards. You can watch it below or on my YouTube Channel in HD.

10 Cards, 1 Kit | SSS Limited Edition Card Kit 2019 | Valentines

Happy Valentine’s Day! I love making Valentine’s, and this Limited Edition Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp called Valentines was packed with cute products that inspired me to create lots of sweet Valentines. My favorite item from this kit is the 6×8 stamp set called “The Sweetest.” The critters in this set are adorable, and I enjoyed coloring them in. Below are pictures of all my cards, as well as pictures of the insides. I love adding a little something on the inside my cards–it makes them that much more fun for the recipients.

I used a wide variety of mediums and techniques to create these cards. I love being elbow deep in paper, colored pencils, stamps and etc. When I am in the middle of creating cards with these kits, my desk becomes a lovely, chaotic mess, but that’s part of the fun! I have a link to my video below. 😉
