Welcome Baby and Beyond!

 Hi There! Here today to show you another from Stamp Simply's newest release: "Baby and Beyond" dies and stamp sets! I am so in love with the new onesie fun to play with --coordinating papers and colors-- and QUICK to make a card if needed at the last minute! The stamp sets are also so great too, love the font choices in both sets. So great to welcome baby, then also commemorate baby's baptism, dedication, and important future events. You can purchase them individually, or as bundles.

Here's my card for today:

I began by die cutting the "Welcome Baby Basics" sweet onesie from Echo Park's "Welcome Easter" paper pad. Fun chicks and rabbits in the pad in all sorts of wonderful colors that work for babies as well as Easter! The little additions with the die set are so cute...I chose the diaper pin to decorate the bib.

After gluing the onesie together with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue, I mounted it on a panel of white cardstock die cut using Spellbinders Hemstitch Oval dies. I laid a piece of yellow print behind the hemstitch to accent the oval. 

I paper pieced the background panel with strips of the Echo Park paper for an easy way to add a "quilted" look. Scor-Tape and dimensional tape (Thermoweb 3D Foam) work great adding extra dimension to the card.

Here's the inside, stamped with the Stamp Simply "Welcome Baby" stamp set using Versafine Vintage Sepia ink. I used the die cut "baby" from the die set, along with the cute rattle.

Such a great set! Reminds me of making paper dolls when I was young.

Newly Released Pretty Poppies and Delightful Dahlias Stamps and Dies

Hello, and welcome! Here today with Stamp Simply's brand new floral clear stamp and steel die sets release: "Delightful Dahlia" and "Pretty Poppies." 

The poppies were stamped with Memento Gray Flannel ink, then colored with Copic Sketch markers. They were then die cut with the poppies steel die. The base of the card is white cardstock embossed with Tim Holtz/Sizzix "3D Texture Fade Lumber" embossing folder layered over a panel of Craft Consortium "Grunge Light" decorator paper. 

A sentiment from the "Pretty Poppies" set was stamped with the Memento ink, then die cut with a Stamp Simply Fishtail Banner Sentiment die. A trio of Tonic Studios Crystal Nuvo drops add the final touch.

The "Delightful Dahlias" clear stamp was also stamped with Memento Gray Flannel ink and Copic sketch marker colored. It looks just lovely die cut with the matching "Delightful Dahlia" die and layered over simple panels of the Craft Consortium "Grunge Light" paper. The sentiment from the Dahlia set was directly stamped onto the background using the Memento Gray Flannel ink. Scor-Tape was used as the adhesive throughout the card designs.

These new blooms are simply beautiful and pleasing to use. I hope that you have a chance to check the Stamp Simply blog to see the rest of the design team ideas from this past week.

The Red, White, and Blue

Hello, and Welcome! Here today with a tribute to the red, white, and blue courtesy of Stamp Simply's brand new stamp and die sets: "The Red, White, and Blue" clear stamps and "The Red, White, and Blue Flag" steel die. So great to color and create with for any patriotic holiday or event! You can purchase these as a bundle, or individually.


I stamped the flag with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto white cardstock, then Copic colored before die cutting with the flag die. I die cut the image two additional times and glued all three layers together with Tombow Aqua Liquid Glue for extra dimension and heft. 

The sentiment is stamped with Tim Holtz Chipped Sapphire Distress ink, then die cut with a Spellbinder Classic Rectangle die; a red cardstock rectangle was also cut to frame out the sentiment.

Both flag and sentiment are popped up with a bit of dimensional tape over the fabulous Carta Bella "God Bless America" decorator paper panel. I absolutely love patriotic papers, and this Carta Bella pad does not disappoint! I especially love the music print portion; just fabulous. Scor-Tape was used throughout.

Quick and easy to make, easy to mail. All linked supplies are from Stamp Simply's new online store.

Congrats Grad!

Hello! Here today with a brand new graduation die set, "Congrats Grad" from Stamp Simply! It coordinates wonderfully with their graduation stamp sets "Graduation Sentiments" and "Scripture for Graduation and Beyond."   

My "school notebook" card for today features the new "Congrats Grad" along with "Graduation Sentiments," along with Echo Park "School Rules" decorator paper. This paper pad is fun as it has school themed prints great for kindergarten to college!

I die cut the graduation hat twice, once from black paper and once from red. I trimmed the tassel from the red hat and glued it into place on the black hat. I die cut the "congrats" word and die cut shadow, then glued them together. 

I prepared the image panel from a piece of the Echo Park "School Rules" decorator pad; then stamped "you did it" onto it with Versafine Onyx black ink. The grad hat and die cut "congrats" sentiment were then glued on using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid glue. Scor-Tape was used throughout.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend.

Fresh and Fabulous Strawberries!


Hello! Here today with a fun to create watercolored die cut. Love playing with paints--just splash some colors onto a die cut, add an interesting, subtle background and a sentiment, and you are ready to go!

Perfect to cut from watercolor paper and shade using your preferred media. I choose Daniel Smith watercolors for my card today.

After the painted die cuts dried, I mounted them onto a background of watercolor paper run through my Spellbinder Platinum machine using Tim Holtz' 3D Texture Fades "Intertwined" embossing folder.

The sentiment if from Stamp Simply's "Fruit Sentiments." Fun, fruity sentiments to fit so many fruits and designs! The sentiment is stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink, then die cut with a Stamp Simply Fishtail Banner Sentiment die.

I hope that you've enjoyed today's design. I'll be back tomorrow announcing the winner from our Stamp Simply Grand Opening 
Blog Hop.  See you then!
