Simon Says Stamp | You are Pawesome Valentine

Cards, Love note

Hi everyone. I hope you’re having a fabulous weekend! Thanks so much for dropping by today.

I’m sharing a whimsical valentine’s day card using stamps from Simon Says Stamp. As always, there is a how to video so you can follow along. You can watch the video below, or over on my YouTube channel.

I wanted to create a special love note that didn’t necessarily require a new stamp set. I love using my stamps all through the year, so this was a perfect excuse to pull out the adorable You are Pawesome stamp set.

That’s it for today. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Until next time,

Lunch Box Cards using Lawn Fawn and Simon Says Stamp

Any occasion, Cards, Non traditional

Hey there! Welcome to my little pajama party. One night, last week, before I went to bed, I practiced some techniques I plan to use in a few up coming tutorials. When I sat down to play, I didn’t plan on actually making a card, but my creative mojo started flowing so I switched on the camera once I realized I was going to create. You can see in the vid that I’m actually wearing my pajamas!

I the kept the cards to a smaller lunchbox sized format. Since I was using up scraps to practice, I just kind of went with it. I haven’t been able to put away the Critters at the Dog Park stamp set since I received it a few weeks ago, not to mention my Distress Ink madness craze!

The final cards are 3×4″–just perfect to send in someones lunch kit. I think it’s sweet to tell someone you love them during the day and I can’t wait to use these cards! I think I’ll send one for my nephew, and use the other for my partner in crime.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I’ll be back here on Wednesday with a new Colour Me…! post and video. Until then, LLAP,

Colour Me…! #59 – Simon Says Stamp and Lawn Fawn, You are Pawesome

Any occasion, Cards, Challenges, Thank You Cards

Welcome! I had so much fun creating my card for this week’s Colour Me…! challenge. The day I created the card, I woke up to -40º C temperatures (yikes!) so I was so ready to create a project using spring colours. This week the challenge is to create a project using teal, yellow, and red.

I grabbed some new stamp sets and incorporated a few different techniques for my card. I’m a novice colourer, so a few months ago I purchased a pack of Bic Mark-It alcohol markers to practice and learn how to colour and blend with markers. I don’t use them that often, but was pleasantly surprised with how well they blended together on this project.
