I Cut Apart Stamped Images to Make Them Fit My Cards! OMG!

Mother’s Day Cards featuring the Simon Says Stamp Easter Joy Stampset and Lawn Fawn Giant Sentiments

Hi friends. If you want to combine a large sentiment like the Lawn Fawn Giant Happy Mother’s Day Die and a stamped image like floral wreath from the Simon Says Stamp Easter Joy stampset but they don’t necessarily fit on the card together? Well, you can make a larger card right?!? Yes, but if you don’t want to do that you can also cut apart your stamped images. What? OMG No! If this sounds horrifying to you, you’re not alone. But I really like this wreath and obsessed with the Lawn Fawn Giant sentiment dies lately and wanted to combine them. The only solution is to cut the wreath apart. And I’m glad I did.

For the first card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create the card base. I cut another piece to 4 x 5-1/4″ and embossed it with the Darice Wire Fence Embossing Folder.

I stamped the wreath from Simon Says Stamp Easter Joy stampset onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images with Copic Markers. I used YG17, YG25 and YG67 for the leaves and stems; R81, R83, & R85, Y17, Y18,BG11 & BG32, YR12, YR16, & YR09 for the flowers. I diecut it using the coordinating dies. Then cut the wreath in half and eventually further cut it apart.

I diecut the sentiment from the Lawn Fawn GOTTA HAVE GINGHAM RAINBOW 6 x 6 Collection Pack as well as two more times from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with the Lawn Fawn Giant Happy Mother’s Day Die. I stacked and adhered them together before adding to my card.

I stamped the wreath from Simon Says Stamp Easter Joy stampset onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images with Copic Markers. I used YG17, YG25 and YG67 for the leaves and stems; R81, R83, & R85, Y17, Y18,BG11 & BG32, YR12, YR16, & YR09 for the flowers. I diecut it using the coordinating dies. Then cut the wreath in half and eventually further cut it apart.

I adhered the parts of the wreath around the sentiment using some Stampin Dimensionals to pop some of it up. I finished off the card by adding some Nuvo Drops in Ivory Shell.

On the inside of the card, I adhered a piece of the same pattern paper from the Lawn Fawn GOTTA HAVE GINGHAM RAINBOW 6 x 6 Collection Pack cut to 1 x 4-1/4″.

For the second card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create the card base. I also cut a piece of Lawn Fawn GOTTA HAVE GINGHAM RAINBOW 6 x 6 Collection Pack cut to 4 x 5-1/4″ for the top panel.

I diecut the sentiment 3x from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with the Lawn Fawn Giant Happy Mother’s Day Die. for the top one I used Catherine Pooler It’s A Girl Ink to create a gradient then adhered all 3 diecuts together, creating a very dimensional sentiment.

I stamped the individual flowers from Simon Says Stamp Easter Joy stampset onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images with Copic Markers. I used YG17, YG25 and YG67 for the leaves and stems; RV21, RV14, & RV29 for the tulips; B0000, B01, B02 & Y13, Y06, Y13 & Y18 for the flowers. I diecut it using the coordinating dies. I popped up some of the flowers with some Stampin Dimensionals.

I finished off the card by splatters with White Acrylic Paint and some faux stitching with a White Gel Pen. I also added some shimmer to the sentiment diecut with a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen.

On the inside of the card, I adhered a piece of the same pattern paper from the Lawn Fawn GOTTA HAVE GINGHAM RAINBOW 6 x 6 Collection Pack cut to 1 x 4-1/4″ and some of the extra tulips I had stamped and colored.

Hi friends. Here’s a cute and easy card featuring the Limited Edition Simon Says Stamp EASTER JOY 2022 Card Kit. I created the background using a foiling technique. Really quick and easy.

I let it dry completely for a few hours then ran the panel through my laminator with Therm O Web Gina K Designs Glimmering Gold Fancy Foil Deco Foil. Once completely cooled I used distress inks to color the eggs using the solid stencil layer.

I used Tim Holtz Spun Sugar, Abandoned Coral, Mustard Seed, Speckled Egg, Stormy Sky, Dusty Concord Distress Inks. I adhered the panel to a piece of Therm O Web Gina K Designs Glimmering Gold Fancy Foil Deco Foil cut to 4 x 5-1/4″ and then onto a piece of Echo Park My Favorite Easter 6 x 6 Paper Pad cut to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″.

5 Cards 1 Kit (Simon Says Stamp Limited Edition Easter Joy 2022 Card Kit)

The Limited Edition Simon Says Stamp EASTER JOY 2022 Card Kit is full of tons of goodies to make cute Easter cards as well as for other occasions. I will be posting some Mother’s Day cards using some items from the kit in April. Stay tuned for that! While the kit is now sold out, you can buy most of the items in the kit seperately. The list below has all the links.

The Kit includes:

For the first card, I started by cutting a piece the piece of 1 sheet Simon Says Stamp 8.5 x 11 inch cardstock in Green Apple in half (5-1/2 x 8-1/2″) and scored at 4-1/4″ to make a two card bases. I’ll set one aside for now. I foiled the Deco Foil Kraft Toner Card Fronts – Basket of Fun with the 6×6 inch Therm O Web Gold Foil, using my laminator and trimmed it down to 4-1/8 x 5-3/8″.

I diecut the easter basket, eggs and chick from the Echo Park My Favorite Easter 6×6 inch paper using the Simon Says Stamp Large Easter Basket die set. I also cut one egg from Simon Says Stamp Aqua Glitter 6×6 Cardstock (not included in the kit) and one from Altenew – Glitter Gradient Cardstock Set – Forest Canopy (not included in the kit) . I added some black cardstock behind the chick and colored his beak with a Copic marker.

I used the base stencil with Tim Holtz Kitsch Flamingo, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide Ink. I added some of the Ranger Icicle Mini Crackle Paste over the eggs and let it dry. Then I used the pattern stencil with Modeling Paste over the eggs to add some texture. I should mention that because I used distress inks to color my eggs the modeling paste will absorb some of that ink and not remain pure white.

I fussycut the eggs but before adding them to the card, I cut a piece of from the sheet of 8.5 x 11 inch Simple Foundations translucent Vellum Paper which I cut to 2-7/8 x 8-1/4″. For the sentiment I cut out strips from the Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Strips REVERSE EASTER WISHES.

I stamped the flowers from the Simon Says Stamp Easter Joy 6×8 inch clear stamp set all over the backgrounds, using Versamark Ink on one and Frayed Burlap Distress Ink on the other panel.

5 Cards 1 Kit: Rainbow Is My Favorite Color (Simon Says Stamp June 2021 Card Kit)

Hi everyone. This card kit just makes me happy. It’s all about rainbows and what’s not to like about that?!? The Simon Says Stamp Rainbow Is My Favorite Color 6×8 inch clear stamp set has a ton of rainbow images and cute sentiments to go along with them. Lots of options with this one. You can also use the straight stripe in non rainbow cards or make no traditional rainbows. I was definitely inspired my several of the design team cards I’ve been seeing posted on instagram @ #sssck.

For the first card, I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Solar White 8.5 x 11″ Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make a card base.

I stamped and fussycut two clouds from the Simon Says Stamp Rainbow Is My Favorite Color 6×8 inch clear stamp set onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Solar White 8.5 x 11″ Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I used Copic Marker BG000 + 0 (Blender) to color the clouds. I adhered them to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the first card, I started by cutting a piece of Simon Says Stamp 100# Schoolhouse Red Cardstock to 7 x 10″ and scored at 5″ to make a card base.

I also cut a piece of Simon Says Stamp Vellum to 4-1/4 x 6-1/4″ and adhered it to the card.

In the paper pack there was one page which had this rainbow and sentiment on it, so I fussycut out all the images separately and adhered them to the card. It also had a pink heard under the rainbow but I wanted more contrast so I fussycut a red heart from another pattern paper in the pad and adhered it with some 3M Foam Tape.

I finished it off by adding Nuvo Drops in Carnation Pink, Autumn Red and Gloss White and some Ranger Glossy Accents to the heart.

Peekaboo Window Slimline Card Using Simon Says Stamp’s February 2021 Card Kit

Hi friends. Here’s a fun interactive peekaboo window with hidden messages for Valentine’s, Galentine’s or any day you want to share love. I pulled out an oldy but goody interactive die from Lawn Fawn and combined it with the Simon Says Stamp February 2021 Card Kit Love You Beary Much. I love the Tumbling Hearts 6 x 6 stencil included in this kit! It is so easy to make a pretty background with it. I will show you how I was able to use it on a slimline card.

The Kit includes:

I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 7 x 8-1/2″ and scored a at 3-1/2″ to create the card base and another piece to 3-1/4 x 7-1/4″. I used Catherine Pooler Designs It’s a Girl Ink to create a gradient background then used the Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Tumbling Hearts 6 x 6 stencil and Catherine Pooler Designs Rouge Ink to create gradient of hearts over the pink.

Next, I used the Lawn Fawn Lift the Flap Dies to cut out three windows on the top panel. I backed the top and bottom windows with a piece of paper from the Simple Stories Sweet Talk 6 x 8 paper pad and stamped a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Love You Beary Much Exclusive 6 x 8 stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to place behind the center window. And adhered that panel to the card base.

I stamped all of the images from the Simon Says Stamp Sweet Truffles Exclusive 3 x 4 stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and some conversation hearts from the Simon Says Stamp Love You Beary Much Exclusive 6 x 8 stamp set.

I colored all the images with Copic Markers. I used E23, E25, E29 & E49 (for chocolate truffles); R81, R83 & R85 (for the truffle wrappers, sprinkles and decor, hearts); R05, R17 & R29 (for hearts); BG000, BG01 & BG02 (for sprinkles and decor, hearts). I fussycut all the images and adhered some to the inside of the card and some on the outside.

To finish it off, I added some White Gloss Nuvo Drops.

On the inside of the card I kept it simple, and just stamped the sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Love You Beary Much Exclusive 6 x 8 stamp set with Catherine Pooler Designs Rouge Ink onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″, fussycut and adhered it to the card. I also added nother truffle image.

Sparkly Pink Bear Card Using Simon Says Stamp’s February 2021 Card Kit

Hi friends. Need a fairly quick card for Valentine’s or Galentine’s Day? This cute sparkly pink bear card came together quickly using the Simon Says Stamp February 2021 Card Kit Love You Beary Much.

The Kit includes:

For this card, I started by using the Simon Says Stamp A2 Black Notecards included in the kit for the card base and cut another one down to 4 x 5-1/4″. Next I used the Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Tumbling Hearts 6 x 6 stencil and applied Thermoweb Rina K Poppin Pink Mini Glitz to the card panel. When I saw this sparkly pink glitter paste I immediately wanted to see what it would look like on the black cardstock. It looks pretty cool. Next time I will add a little bit more so its all completely evenly covered.

I set that aside to dry and stamped the little bear from the Simon Says Stamp Love You Beary Much Exclusive 6 x 8 stamp set onto Neenah 110lb Solar White Cardstock  8.5 x 11 with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I also stamped his paws a second time (you will see why later), and stamped the heart he is holding onto some pink scrap pattern paper from my stash and a sentiment onto that heart.

I colored the image with Copic Markers. I also colored the pattern paper heart to give it some dimension and make it pop a bit more. I used R81, R83 and R85 (ears and nose); R20 (cheeks); C1, C3, C5, & C7 (bear); adn R27 and R83 (pattern heart). I fussycut the images out and adhered them together using 3M Foam Tape behind the heart and paws.

I diecut a 2-5/8″ circle from Neenah 110lb Solar White Cardstock  8.5 x 11 with SU! Layering Circle Dies and a 3″ circle from the Simple Stories Sweet Talk 6 x 8 paper pad. I adhered those together, the bear to the circles and then to the card.

To finish it off, I added some of the hot pink sequins from Lovestruck Sequins and embellishment mixes.

On the inside of the card I kept it simple, and just stamped the sentiment heart from Simon Says Stamp Love You Beary Much Exclusive 6 x 8 stamp set with Stampin Up! Magenta Madness Ink.

Window Card Using a Laminator featuring Simon Says Stamp

Happy Monday friends! Hope you are safe and had a good weekend. Today I am bringing you this card featuring a faux shaker. I saw this technique used by Jennifer McGuire and I decided to try it. I made it simpler by using pattern paper and some stamped snowflakes.

I started by cutting a piece of Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue 100lb Card Stock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″, to create a card base. I cut out a strip from the front of the card base, measuring 1-1/4” in height and then two strips of the stories from the Carta Bella Santa’s Workshop 6 x 6 Designer Papers (discontinued), each measuring 1-1/2 x 5-1/2”.

I took some sequins and added them inside a laminating pouch and ran that through a lamination machine. I trimmed it down to approximately 3 x 5-1/2” and adhered it between the card base pieces and the pattern pieces using 1/4” double sided tape.

I stamped a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp CHRISTMAS CHEER Stamps onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Catherine Pooler Midnight Ink. Then cut it down to 3/8 x 2-3/4” and adhered it to the card. I also stamped some snowflakes with Tim Holtz Festive Berries Distress Oxide Ink, fussycut them out and adhered them to the card.

On the inside of the card, I adhered two strips of another pattern paper from the Carta Bella Santa’s Workshop 6 x 6 Designer Papers (discontinued), each measuring 1-1/2 x 5-1/2”, to the back of the front panel. Then I stamped another greeting from the Simon Says Stamp CHRISTMAS CHEER Stamps with Tim Holtz Festive Berries Distress Oxide Ink.

Using Stickers to Create a Slimline Christmas Card

Stickers are a great way to create quick cards and who doesn’t like quick cards for the holidays, right?!? I had some leftover stickers from the Carta Bella Paper – Santa’s Workshop Collection, Christmas, 12 x 12 Cardstock Stickers featured in the Says Stamp December 2018 Card Kit, Holiday Cheer (sold out) so I decided to use them on a slimline card. The larger sticker like the Santa and reindeer one are great fro slimline cards!

I started by cutting a piece of Says Stamp Green Leaf Card Stock 100# 8.5 x 11″ to 7 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 3-1/2″ to create a slimline card base and a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 3-1/4 x 8-1/4” for the top panel. I also cut another piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 1-1/2 x 8-1/2” and used the Lawn Fawn Slimline Stitched Hillside Borders Die Cuts to diecut a snowy hillside.

I used Versamark Ink to stamp the snowflake pattern from the Simon Says Stamp CHRISTMAS CHEER Stampset all over the background and heat embossed it with WOW OPAQUE BRIGHT WHITE Super Fine Embossing Powder. I used Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and Tim Holtz Salty Ocean Oxide Ink to ink blend the background and adhered it to the card base. I adhered the snowy hillside to the card as well, leaving the top edge without glue. I adhered the Christmas tree from Carta Bella Paper – Santa’s Workshop Collection, Christmas, 12 x 12 Cardstock Stickers behind the hillside and the Santa on his sleigh on top of the hillside.

I stamped a sentiment from Simon Says Clear CHRISTMAS CHEER Stampset onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Stampin’ Up! Real Red Ink, cut it to 1-3/16 x 2-1/8 and adhered it to the card. I finished it off by adding Tonic White Blizzard Nuvo Glitter Drops.

On the inside of the card, I stamped another greeting from the Simon Says Clear CHRISTMAS CHEER Stampset with Stampin’ Up! Real Red Ink and added a reindeer from the Carta Bella Paper – Santa’s Workshop Collection, Christmas, 12 x 12 Cardstock Stickers.
