Simon Says Stamp - Floral Love

Here I've used the SSS Love You Very Much die and Swoopy Flowers from the Kisses release. This was a really simple card to make with a bit of masking and watercoloring.  I did smudgy finger the central panel so ended up fussy cutting the floral panels and popping them on another piece of cardstock. So so me.  LOL.

Simon Says Stamp - Best Ever

I got my latest Simon Says Stamp Golden Bone package for the Kisses release and finally had time to play a bit. I cannot believe it's already almost February--what the heck!

I must admit I LOVE how this card turned out.  I wanted to try using alcohol ink on the Simon Champage Matte Foil cardstock and wow, wow, wow!  So sassy!

I then embossed the Jumbled Hearts background using Versamark with a translucent yellow embossing powder. I wish you could fondle this.  Yes, fondle!

Fairy Happy Holidays

I tried a technique where you (3D) emboss cardstock then hot foil it as is.  Umm,  yeah, didn't turn out quite like I hoped but rather cool anyway.

Lawn Fawn Skunks

Oh, happy day!  I took some time, some much needed me time, to work up a Valentine using some new stuff including the adorable Lawn Fawn Scent with Love stamps set, Portrait Heart Garland Backdrop and the Woodgrain Hot Foil Plate.  See a full listing of products used below.

I jazzed the hearts up using pink glitter cardstock that I ombre airbrushed with Copic R29.  I like using the airbrush but the cats aren't a fan. Hiss, hiss!

SOSS #226 - G for Glitter

Come join us for the latest Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge #226 G for Glitter. You can't get much easier than that! What crafter doesn't have glitter in their stash?

I saw a meme on Pinterest and had to use the quote for this card considering I had the perfect buttcheeks (butt cheeks?).  I wish I did in real life but, alas, I have Asian flat ass. LOL.

Taylored Expressions Holly Holiday with an A2 Twist

I was able to borrow the Taylored Expressions Mini Slim Layering Stencils from my sister. The colors combos are endless.  Seriously.

I went with a modern color combo and trimmed down each into a panel that would fit on an A2 card. I don't prefer doing slimline cards because then I have to think about dimensions--eww.  LOL.

Thsi one is my favorite on the bunch.  I love poinsettias in general and this one pairs so well with the Taylored Expressions Modern Holiday sentiments, naturally.

For this card I cut out the stenciled part of the panel with one of my new Spellbinders Essential Arches dies then used my The Greetery A2 Arches Stencils/Masks to created a border.  Of course, I decided to do this after I embossed the base using the Spellbinderes Snowflake Sparkle Background Hot Foil Plate.  

In any case, super easy and less bulky so maybe I can actually afford to mail this. Postage cost increases are understandable but ouch.

Simon Says Stamps: Jumbled Hearts

I used the Simon Says Stamp Jumbled Hearts from the Hugs release for this Valentine. I used bright Catherine Pooler and Distress Inks.

I had intended to make a shaker but also wanted to use that glitter cardstock so skipped the shaker and embossed the acetate then added a couple of additional glitter hearts.  This makes my heart happy!
