Simon Says Stamp, Summer Cards

Last Day of Summer Hop | Summer Card Project | Adding Color with Ink

Happy last day of summer, my friends! Here is one last summertime card. I’m part of a hop with crafters who are celebrating because they are looking forward to the coming fall months or they are trying to hang on to every last precious minute of summer like me.

I created a card using a stamp set called Summer Sunshine from Simon Says Stamp. The images in this set don’t require any coloring. The colors on my card come from a few Distress Oxide Inks: Picked Raspberry, Wild Honey and Squeezed Lemonade. I stamped my sentiment with all three inks onto a piece of white cardstock. I also stamped out a few clouds and fussy cut everything out. This was a super fast card to put together. I used a few pieces of colored cardstock, a few beads and then put everything together.

Here is my process video for this card. You can watch it here or over on my YouTube channel in HD.

Next up in the hop is the fabulous Sharon Luska!

Happy fall, everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful and healthy season!

Hello! Welcome to the Under the Sea Hashtag Hop! In this hop you are going to see lots of fun mermaid card crafting inspiration. Teresa Russell from Scrapping for Less put this hop together, and I’m so excited to be a part of it! Click on the hashtag #thursdayunderthesea to see all of the other participants in this hop.

For Thursday’s card I’m using a darling stamp set from LDRS called Mermaid Treasures. I pulled out my watercolors to paint in the mermaid and the scene behind her. I also used a fabulous die set from Sunny Studio to cut out the window; it’s called Stitched Semi Circles.

I had so much fun creating this card! Tomorrow I will be posting another mermaid card and video and another one on Saturday!

Check out my process video! You can watch it here or over on my YouTube channel in HD.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoy the hop!

Copic Coloring, Spellbinders, Summer Cards

Make a Splash Summer Card|Happy Place Collection|Spellbinders & FSJ

Hello Crafty Friends! I have some fabulous products that I just know you are going to fall in love with. I sure did! Spellbinders and Fun Stampers Journey have a new line of goodies called Happy Place. I have three products to show you from this collection: Sunny Day Stencil, Pool with a View Die Set, and Make a Splash Stamp set. I had a blast creating with these products!

Pool With a View Die Set:

To create my card I pulled out my Distress Ink Cubes. I haven’t used these for a long time. I taped the Sunny day stencil to a piece of white cardstock and blended on Wild Honey and Mustard Seed to create my sunshine. I then cut this panel down to 5.25 by 4 inches. I used more white cardstock to cut out my Pool With a View Dies. On the rim around the pool I used Hickory Smoke and for the water I used Peacock Feathers.

To distress the pool water, I flicked on droplet of water and dabbed them up with a cloth. These Distress Inks are so much fun to play with and they distress beautifully!

Card 3 redo

I stamped my images onto another piece of white cardstock and colored them in with Copic markers. I didn’t plan out my colors, I just randomly pulled them out of my Copic storage contains and had fun coloring. I adore all the images in the stamp set! I fussy-cut them out. To put this card together, I adhered everything down flat onto my sunshine panel. I matted this with a piece of green cardstock. I added my sentiment and a few water droplet gems and my card was done!
