Get Well Soon Bear Card (feat. Lawn Fawn)

Hi friends. Here’s a quick and easy cut little get well card featuring the Lawn Fawn Here For You Bear stampset.

For this card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 4-1/2 x 9″ and scored at 4-1/2″ to create the card base.

I cut a piece of Montval Acid-Free Cold Press Watercolor Paper, 140 lb, 18 X 24 in, Natural White to about 4-1/4 x 4-1/4″ and used the Catherine Pooler ink refills in Party Dress, Tiki Torch, Limoncello, Lime Rickey, Something Borrowed, and Grape Crush to create drips on the panel. I just squirted a dot of the ink onto the very top of the panel then using a brush dripped water onto it and let it run down the page. I added some splashes with a few of the same inks.

Then I diecut the panel using the second largest die from the Sizzix Framelits Die Set 6/PK – Squares, Scallop (4-1/8 x 4-1/8″). I cut a piece of Vellum with the next smaller scallop square (3-3/8 x 3-3/8″) as well. I stamped a background with the raindrop from Lawn Fawn’s Here For You Bear stampset with Ranger Archival Manganese Blue onto the vellum piece.

I stamped the images and sentiments from Lawn Fawn’s Here For You Bear stampset onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images with Copic Markers.

I used Y02, Y13 & Y18, E33, E37 & E29, E00 & E33 (nose) for the bear; R14 & R27, Y13 & Y18, B02 & B06 for the rainbow; BG000 & 0 for the clouds and the puddles. I fussycut the images and trimmed the sentiment strips to 7/16 x 2-1/2 and 7/16 x 1-3/4 and added some Stampin’ Dimensionals to the rainbows to pop them up.

I finished off the card by adding some Morning Dew Nuvo Drops.

On the inside of the card, I stamped another sentiment and rainbow from Lawn Fawn’s Here For You Bear stampset with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

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 die cut the sentiment 3x from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock using the Lawn Fawn Giant Happy Easter Die Cut (not included in the kit) and created an ombre effect on one of them with Catherine Pooler Designs Sweet Sixteen and Pixie Dust Inks. I finished it off by adding some white grosgrain ribbon to the basket.

On the inside of the card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 4 x 5-1/4″ and stamped a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Easter Joy 6×8 inch clear stamp set with Pixie Dust Ink.

Dimensions


For the second card, I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 7 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 3-1/2″ to make a card base. I foiled the Deco Foil Slimline Toner Card Fronts – Basket of Fun included in the kit with Therm O Web RAINBOW SHATTERED Deco Foil Transfer Sheets using my laminator. I trimmed it down to 3-1/4 x 8-1/4″.

I used the Simon Says Stamp Set of 2 Layering Eggs 4×9 inch stencils to ink all the eggs onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock in a rainbow pattern. 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.

On the inside of the card I kept it simple, I added a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Strips EASTER WISHES with Catherine Pooler Designs Midnight Ink and some leftover eggs.

Dimensions


For the third card, I started by cutting a piece the piece of 1 sheet Simon Says Stamp 8.5 x 11 inch cardstock in Cotton Candy 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 also cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 4 x 5-1/4” which I inked with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink.

I stamped the Some Bunny Loves You sentiment from the from the Simon Says Stamp Somebunny Loves You 3×4 inch clear stamp onto some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Catherine Pooler Designs Midnight Ink and die cut it with the Simon Says Stamp Somebunny Loves You coordinating die set.

I die cut the grass from Simon Says Stamp 8.5 x 11 inch cardstock in Green Apple with the Lawn Fawn Hillside Grassy Border and the eggs from the Echo Park My Favorite Easter 6×6 inch paper using the Simon Says Stamp Large Easter Basket die set.

I popped up the sentiment and the grass with 3M Foam Tape and finished it off by adding some Nuvo Fresh Snowfall Glitter Drops.

On the inside of the card I adhered a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb Cardstock, measuring 4 x 5-1/4″ and just added a sentiment strip from Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Strips Easter Wishes and some extra die cut eggs.

Dimensions


For the fourth Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base. I die cut a panel from one of the pattern papers in the Echo Park My Favorite Easter 6×6 inch paper using the the Catherine Pooler Scallops and Dots Dies and cut out a window with the egg die from the Simon Says Stamp Easter Joy 6×8 inch clear stamp set.

I added another piece of pattern paper from the Echo Park My Favorite Easter 6×6 inch paper using behind the window.

Dimensions


For the fifth card, I decided to do two versions of this just to see the different results I would achieve using acetate versus vellum with Copic Markers.

I used the other half of the Simon Says Stamp 8.5 x 11 inch cardstock in Green Apple and Cotton Candy which I had cut to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create the card bases. Then I cut a piece of Neenah 8.5 x 11 inch cardstock in Desert Storm to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ and another to 4 x 5-1/4″.

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. Then die cut a window from the center of both using the egg included in the Simon Says Stamp Easter Joy Wafer Dies.

I stamped the egg flower image from the Simon Says Stamp Easter Joy 6×8 inch clear stamp set onto a piece Acetate and a piece of the 8.5 x 11 inch Simple Foundations translucent Vellum Paper larger than my window with Tsukineko Stazon Midi Jet Black Ink. I colored both with Copic Markers.

I finished off the cards by adding some Nuvo Drops in Bottle Green, Duck Egg Blue and Rosewater to one and Crushed Grape Gloss and Orange Marmalade to the other.

Elevating Your Dies…with Ink featuring Honey Bee Stamps and Lawn Fawn

Hello friends. Here’s a quick way to add interest and dimension to standalone dies…just use ink. Nothing could be easier, right?!?

For this card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create the card base. Then cut another panel to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″. I die cut it from Bazzill Basics 12 x 12 Mono Blue Cardstock with the Honey Bee Stamps A2 Base Coverplate and three from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ using the Top Coverplate. To give the birch trees dimension, I used Speckled Egg Distress Ink for the blue birch trees panel and Salty Ocean Distress Ink for the white ones.

For the background, I used Salty Ocean, Chipped Sapphire and Faded Jeans Distress Oxides to create an ombré effect. I also added some sparkle with a Shimmer Pen Before adhering any of the background trees to the card, I stamped images from the Lawn Fawn SCENT WITH LOVE Clear Stamps and Lawn Fawn SCENT WITH LOVE ADD-ON Clear Stamps onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

I colored the images with Copic colors. I used R14, 27 & 46 for the red heart balloon and tiny heart trio; C1 & 0, C5 & C7, and R20 for the skunks; RV11 & RV55, R14 & R46, E25 & E29 for the cupcakes; C1 & 0 for the scent trails; C00 & 0, R14 for the envelope; R14, 27 & 46, RV10, RV11 & RV55, E27 & E29 for the heart boxes; R14 & R46 for the tulip and YG25 & 17 for all the stem. I die cut all the images with the coordinating dies.

I nestled some of the images between the two layers of trees before adding to the card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Lawn Fawn SCENT WITH LOVE ADD-ON Clear Stamps onto Stampin’ Up! Real Red 8-1/2 x 11” Cardstock using Versamark Ink and heat embossed it with Wow White Embossing Powder and cut it to 3/8 x 2-3/4”.

I left the inside of the card blank and just added two images I had previously stamped from the same stamp set.

Honey Bee Stamps House Builder Valentine’s Day Card

Hi friends. I used the House Builder Card Base Dies from Honey Bee Stamps along with the Treat Shop Add-On Dies and Stamps to make this cute Valentine’s Day Card. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make another card with these dies. They are still one of my faves!

For this card, I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 10 x 7″and scored it at 5″ and a panel to 5 x 7″ for the background, which I inked with Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Distress Inks. Then diecut the house card base 1x with the House Builder Card Base Dies from Pebbles Forever My Always 6 x 6 Paper.

Then die cut the roof and window awnings from both Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and Stampin’ Up! Real Red 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock from the Honey Bee Stamps Treat Shop Add-On Dies. I cut out every other strip on the awnings and adhered them to the white one to create a cute striped awning. I diecut out the window from the front of the card.

The door was diecut from the same two color cardstocks using the Honey Cuts Gingerbread House Add-On and the stairs from Simon Says Stamp Card Stock 100# Slate Gray Cardstock. I added some dimension to the house base, the door, steps, and awning with ink. I used Catherine Pooler Pink Champagne for the house base, Stampin’ Up! Real Red Ink for the roof and door and Memento Tuxedo Black Ink for the steps. I also diecut the bushes from Stampin’ Up! Old Olive 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock with the House Builder Card Base Dies and added Stampin’ Up! Old Olive Ink around the edges.

I added a piece of Vellum behind the window as well as a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to create a frosted window appearance. I added a strip of Simon Says Stamp Card Stock 100# FOG Gray Cardstock to the bottom of the card before adhering the house. I stamped all the images from the Honey Bee Stamps Treat Shop Add-On 6×6 Stamp Set onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Additionally, I used Clear Embossing Powder on the “Candy Shop” and “We Are Open” signs for some added dimension and interest.

I colored them with Copic Markers. I used BG000 and Copic Blender 0 for all glass elements (cake dome, candy dome and gumball machine); R81 & R83, C1, C3, & C5 for the chairs and table; R14 & R27, R81 & R83 for the umbrella. E25 & E29, R81, R83 & R85, C1 & 0 for the cupcakes; R14 & R27, C00 & 0, BG000, G94 and E25 for the gumball machine; E25 & E29 for the chocolates; R81, R83 & R85 for the present; and G94 & G99, R81 & R83, E25 & E29, R14 & R27 for the candies.

I popped up the “Candy Shop” sign, “We Are Open” sign and the cake dome with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I created the heart banner by stamping the little heart from Honey Bee Stamps Little Pickup 4×6 Stamp Set with Stampin’ Up! Real Red Ink onto a piece of and cut them using the coordinating dies. Then I drew a black line using a Sharpie Ultra Fine Point Marker (you need to use a permanent marker when writing on vellum or it will smudge).

I finished off the card by adding some highlights to some of the images with a White Gel Pen.

On the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s Happy Happy Happy Add-on Stampset with Stampin’ Up! Real Red Ink and added a tiny awning which I cut from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and Stampin’ Up! Real Red 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock using the Honey Bee Stamps Treat Shop Add-On Dies. I added some left over images I had colored and die cut.

Stretching Your Stamps: Valentine’s Day Cards

Hello friends. I came across these two birthday gift stampsets I have from Lawn Fawn while organizing and thought they would be cute on some Valentine’s Day card. These stamp sets are meant for birthdays but why not try to make Valentine’s Day cards instead. It’s time to challenge myself.

I used the Lawn Fawn, Party Pig, which I received as my birthday gift from Lawn Fawn in 2021 but also decide to use the Party Panda stamp set I received in 2020 as well. I combined them with the Giant Be My Valentine sentiment die to create a lovely focal image. Combining this die and some pattern papers helped me create two very quick cards!

For the first card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create the card base. Then cut another panel of Simple Stories – Sweet Talk Collection – 6 x 8 Papers (had some left over from my SSS Feb 2021 Card Kit – Love You Beary) to 4 x 5-1/4″.

I diecut a piece of Stampin’ Up! Real Red 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock with the Lawn Fawn Lacy Heart Stackables which I embossed it using the Crafters Companion Embossalicious Grand Dots Embossing Folder (retired but I linked a similar one).

I diecut the sentiment from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ (3x) using the Lawn Fawn Giant Be My Valentine Die and stacked them.

I stamped the panda image and cupcake from the Lawn Fawn Party Panda mini stampset (2020 birthday gift with purchase) onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

I colored them with Copic markers. Then I used C1 & 0 to add shading to the panda; R81, 83, & 85 for the cupcake, E23 & E29 for the cupcake wrapper, and R17 for the cherry on top of the cupcake. I die cut all the images with the coordinating dies and added some Stampin Dimensionals to the panda before adhering to the card. And added some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Mix Cupped Sequins to finish it.

On the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment the Lawn Fawn Happy Happy Happy add-on Stamps with Stampin’ Up! Real Red Ink.

Dimensions


For the second card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create the card base. Then cut another panel of Simple Stories – Sweet Talk Collection – 6 x 8 Papers (had some left over from my SSS Feb 2021 Card Kit – Love You Beary) to 4 x 5-1/4″.

I diecut a piece of Vellum Cardstock with the Lawn Fawn Lacy Heart Stackables which I embossed it using the Crafters Companion Embossalicious Grand Dots Embossing Folder (retired but I linked a similar one).

I diecut the sentiment from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ (2x) and one from Stampin’ Up! Red Foil 12 x 12 Cardstock (retired) using the Lawn Fawn Giant Be My Valentine Die and stacked them together.

I stamped the pig and gift images from the Lawn Fawn Party Pig mini stampset (2021 birthday gift with purchase) onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic markers. I used RV52, RV55, RV66, C1, C3, C7 & 0 to for the pig; R17 & R27, E29 & E27 for the gift. I die cut all the images with the coordinating dies.

I added some Stampin Dimensionals to the pig before adhering to the card. And added some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Mix Cupped Sequins to finish it.

On the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment the Lawn Fawn Happy Happy Happy add-on Stamps with Stampin’ Up! Real Red Ink.

Valentine’s Day Slimline Window Scene Cards

Hi friends. The Lawn Fawn Scent With Love Clear Stamps and Dies is great for scene cards so I decided to make a slimline card. But had so much fun making them I made four instead. 🙂

For these cards, I cut two pieces of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″, one piece of Simon Says Stamp Cardstock 100# COTTON CANDY and one of Stampin’ Up! Blushing Bride 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock to 7 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 3-1/2″ to create four card bases. I die cut the scallop slimline panel from two different pattern papers from my stash and two from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″, using the Catherine Pooler Essentials Slimline Die.

On the white panels, I stenciled hearts using the Simon Says Stamp Stencil Tumbling Hearts Stencil with Tim Holtz Distress Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide Ink and on the other panel, clouds using My Favorite Things Cloud Stencil and Mini Cloud Edges Mix-ables Stencil with Tim Holtz Broken China Distress Oxide Ink. I die cut out the windows using the Catherine Pooler Essentials Slimline Die. These dies make it so easy to make a 3 window slimline card.

I added a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to the back of the pattern paper backgrounds and a piece of vellum behind the stenciled panels, cut to 3-1/2 x 8-1/8″. Before adhering stenciled backgrounds to the card, I added the negative pieces of the window to the card. I stenciled some tiny hearts onto the background of the white windows with Hero Arts Heart Confetti Fancy Die (I die cut acetate to create the stencil) and Catherine Pooler Be Mine Ink.

I stamped a bunch of images from the Lawn Fawn SCENT WITH LOVE Clear Stamps and Dies and the Lawn Fawn SCENT WITH LOVE ADD-ON Clear Stamps and Dies onto some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

The images were colored with Copic colors. I used R14, 27 & 46 for all the red items; R81, 83, & 85 for all the pink items; YG25 & 17 for all the greenery; C1, 5, & 7 and 0 for the skunks; and E74 & 79 for all the chocolate items. I die cut all the images with the coordinating dies.

I finished them all by adding some Tonic Fresh Snowfall Nuvo Glitter Accents.

On the inside of the pink cards, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 3 x 8″ and stamped a sentiment and the three hearts from the Lawn Fawn SCENT WITH LOVE ADD-ON Clear Stamps and Dies with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. For the white cards, I just stamped the image directly inside the cards.

Valentine’s Day Card featuring Lawn Fawn Scent With Love

Happy New Year friends. Hope you all had some quality safe time with family and friends and are ready for a new and hopefully better year!

For my first cards of the new year I am making some cute Valentine’s cards using Lawn Fawn SCENT WITH LOVE Clear Stamps and Dies and Giant XOXO and Giant Be My Valentine combined with some simple watercolor/smooshed backgrounds. I haven’t done any watercoloring techniques in a while and wanted to play with this technique again. It’s great for quick backgrounds!

For the first card, I cut a piece of Simon Says Stamp 100lb Surf Blue 8-1/2 x 11″ Card Stock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create the card base. Then cut another panel of Simple Stories – Sweet Talk Collection – 6 x 8 Papers (had some left over from my SSS Feb 2021 Card Kit – Love You Beary) to the same size as the card base (4-1/4 x 5-1/2″).

I took a piece of Strathmore 300 Series Bristol Smooth Paper, measuring 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ and Catherine Pooler Cummerbund Ink to create the background. I used the smoosh technique (you put ink on an acrylic block or glass surface, add ink and lots of water and press your paper doen onto it) which is super easy and fun. Then I had to wait for it to dry….(always hard for me since I’m super impatient. LOL). Once dry, I used the Catherine Pooler Scallops & Dots Dies (I used the largest scallop) to cut it out. Always make sure the paper is completely dry before die cutting or it will tear the paper!

While waiting for the background to dry, I stamped a bunch of images from the Lawn Fawn SCENT WITH LOVE Clear Stamps and Dies and the Lawn Fawn SCENT WITH LOVE ADD-ON Clear Stamps and Dies onto some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

I colored the images with Copic colors. I used R17, 27 & 46 for all the red items; R81, 83, & 85 for all the pink items; YG25 & 17 for all the greenery; C1, 3, 5, & 7 for the skunks; and E74 & 79 for all the chocolate items. I die cut all the images with the coordinating dies.

Farmhouse Card For Any Occasion featuring Honey Bee Stamps

Another great add-on dieset from Honey Bee Stamps! The Farmhouse Add-on Dies and Stampset coordinate with the House Builder Card Base Dies and allow you to make lots of cute cards. The last card I made was very patriotic but for this one I decided to make a more traditional farmhouse which can be used for any occasion.

For this card, I started by diecutting the house card base 2x with the House Builder Card Base Dies from Stampin’ Up! Cherry Cobbler 8.5 X 11″ Cardstock. I adhered the two houses with the pre-scored strip that comes in the House Builder Card Base Dies to create the card base. Be sure to use double-sided tape or something very strong so they don’t come apart.

Then die cut the roof and porch steps, and chimney from Simon Says Stamp Card Stock 100# FOG Gray Cardstock and stenciled bricks on the front of the house with Tim Holtz BRICKED Layering Stencil and Stampin’ Up! Smoky Slate Ink, the Lawn Fawn Yeti Ink.

I adhered the roof and chimney to the card base and diecut the porch header 2x from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and added some Simon Says Stamp Card Stock 100# FOG Gray Cardstock behind the headers. I also diecut the window frames, porch rails, porch beams/columns, porch rail beams, deck/porch foundation also from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″. I diecut the window backs from Stampin’ Up! Pool Party 8.5 x 11″ Cardstock, the curtains from House Builder Card Base Dies with Doodlebug Designs Yankee Doodle 6×6 Paper Pad (I believe it’s discontinued) and the door from some brown cardstock from my stash. I stamped a wood pattern on the door using Stampin’ Up! Early Espresso Ink and Stampin’ Up!’s Hardwood Clear Mount Background Stamp (retired) and used Tim Holtz Idea-ology 8 x 8 Paper Stash Metallic Kraft Stock for the doorknob. Before adhering all the diecuts to the card, I used the Scrappy Tails Slimline Brick Background Metal Craft Die and Stampin’ Up! Cherry Cobbler 8.5 X 11″ Cardstock and adhered them to the card.

I diecut the flowers and leaves from the House Builder Card Base with green, pink, yellow and navy blue cardstock from my stash.

I stamped the decorative star, two rooster weathervanes, two lanterns, two hanging pots, the table, chair, one plant and a mailbox onto some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I used B23, B24 and B26 for the star and hanging pots, B21 and B23 for the chair, YG11 and YG17 for the plants, Y02 and Y13 for the flower pot, mailbox and lantern light, C1 and C3 for the lanterns and W3 and W5 for the table.

I left the inside of the card blank.

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.

The Kit includes:

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. Then cut a piece of the aqua tiny cloud pattern paper from the Doodlebug Custom Rainbow 2021 6×6 inch paper to 4 x 5-1/4″ and a strip of the rainbow striped paper (also from the same paper pack) to 5/8 x 5-1/4″ and adhered them all to the card base. I added White Love from Lizi Pin Stripe Peel-Off Stickers on each side of the striped strip.

I diecut 1 rainbow from Neenah 110lb Solar White 8.5 Neenah 110lb Solar White 8.5 x 11″ Cardstock with the Simon Says Stamp Hello Rainbow die and used the Simon Says Stamp 1 inch cube ink pads in Jellybean, Sunshine, Hot Lips, and Audrey Blue and Mini Sponge Daubers to create a rainbow. 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.

I stamped a sentiment 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, which I cut down to 1-1/16 x 2″.

To finish it off, I added a tiny pink heart from the Doodlebug Chasing Rainbows Shape Sprinkles and lots of the Memory Box Fairy Jewels.

On the inside of the card, I added a strip of the same paper Doodlebug Custom Rainbow 2021 6×6 inch paper I used on the front cut to 3/4 x 5-1/2″.

For the second card, I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Solar White 8.5 x 11″ Cardstock to 7 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 3-1/2″ to make a card base. Then cut another piece to 3-1/4 x 8-1/4″.

I used the Simon Says Stamp Build A Rainbow 6×9 inch stencil with the Simon Says Stamp 1 inch cube ink pads in Jellybean, Sunshine, Hot Lips, and Audrey Blue and Broken China Distress Ink to create my scene. I stenciled the clouds first with Broken China Distress Ink, the rainbows next with the 4 colors included in the kit and lastly the sun. I traced the outer rainbow onto piece of post-it note paper to use as a mask before adding the sun. I adhered the panel to the card base and stamped a sentiment 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, which I fussy cut and added to the card.

I added some yellow jewels from the Memory Box Fairy Jewels to the sun and some clear ones to the card.

On the inside of the card I stenciled some clouds at the bottom edge of the card with the Simon Says Stamp Build A Rainbow 6×9 inch stencil and Broken China Distress Ink.

For the third card, I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Solar White 8.5 x 11″ Cardstock to 7 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 3-1/2″ to make a card base. Then cut another piece to 3-1/4 x 8-1/4″.

I kept this card pretty simple and the rainbows didn’t take as long to stamp as I thought they might. Using my MISTI made the process faster. I stamped three rainbows from the Simon Says Stamp Rainbow Is My Favorite Color 6×8 inch clear stamp set onto Neenah 110lb Solar White 8.5 x 11″ Cardstock using the Simon Says Stamp 1 inch cube ink pads in Jellybean, Sunshine, Hot Lips, and Audrey Blue inks and fussy cut them. I stamped the clouds from the same stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto more Neenah card stock and fussycut those out as well.

I cut a piece of the pattern paper from the Doodlebug Custom Rainbow 2021 6×6 inch paper to 1-1/2 x 3-1/2” and stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto it.

I adhered the pattern paper to the card and used 3M Foam Tape to adhere the rainbows and clouds to the card. I stamped the three hearts from the stamp set with Hot Lips Ink and added Glossy Accents over them.

On the inside of the card I cut a piece of the same pattern paper as the front of the card to 1-1/4 x 3-1/2″.

For the fourth card, I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Solar White 8.5 x 11″ Cardstock to 7 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 3-1/2″ to create a card base. And a second piece of Neenah Cardstock which I diecut using the large die from the Lawn Fawn Large Slimline with Sliders Die. I Inked it with Audrey Blue Ink to create an ombre effect.

I diecut four rainbows from the 8.5 x 11 inch sheet of Simon Says Stamp Holographic Rainbow cardstock with the Simon Says Stamp Hello Rainbow die. And stamped several clouds from the Simon Says Stamp Rainbow Is My Favorite Color 6×8 inch clear stamp set onto Neenah 110lb Solar White 8.5 x 11″ Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, colored them with C1 and 0 Copic Markers and fussycut them out.

For the fifth 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 and another piece to 4 x 5-1/4″. I stenciled the sune and clouds using the Simon Says Stamp Build A Rainbow 6×9 inch stencil and Sunshine and Audrey Blue Inks.

I also stenciled the cloud border on another piece of Neenah 110lb Solar White 8.5 x 11″ Cardstock which I cut to 1-3/4 x 4″, then fussycut the top edge of the clouds. I stamped a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Rainbow Is My Favorite Color 6×8 inch clear stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto the cloud border.

Next, I used Deco Foil – Transfer Gel, a palette knife and the Simon Says Stamp Build A Rainbow 6×9 inch stencil to add a rainbow onto the card. Once it dried, I added Therm O Web RAINBOW SHATTERED Deco Foil Transfer Sheets and ran it through my lamination machine.

I adhered the cloud border to the bottom of the card panel with 3M Foam Tape. I finished it off by adding some Memory Box Fairy Jewels.

I left the inside of the card blank .
