You Have My Heart Blog Hop + Giveaway!


Welcome to my stop on the YOU HAVE MY HEART blog hop for Simon Says Stamp!
You can find the entire collection HERE!

I'm highlighting a couple of stamp sets that I designed, the first being the Stacking Animals! These are made to stack in different hilariously wrong configurations!

I used the new Intense Black ink from Simon Says Stamp. This new ink is developed for using with Alcohol and Solvent based markers! Coloring my critters was easy, just used my Copics!


I stamped the background of a 4 bar card with the Stepping Stones cling stamp and Fog ink, then die cut a Stitched Dress Up Tag in white and a bit of pattern paper. I added my animals to the tag with some foam squares along with my message.  


Next up is a stamp set called Roses For You that can be used all year round for expressing your love. The heart of rose image below was stamped and white embossed on Fog card stock. I watercolored the rose with Worn Lipstick and Peeled Paint Distress inks allowing the colors to fade in areas for more dimension.


I use the Heart Breeze die on the 4 bar card, then backed it with Fog card stock. From there I stacked my stamped and die cut pieces onto the card with foam squares.


Thanks for coming by, I hope you've enjoyed my samples!
