Simon Says Stamp #SSSGoodVibes Release is HERE!!!

This is such a fun release, perfect to start summer off with a bang!!! It's like taking a walk in the sand with waves crashing at your feet, surfboards, sunshine, memories of being raised in Laguna Beach!! Good Vibes for SURE!!

I have a couple close ups of some cards that I created. The full shots will be featured on the Simon Says Stamp blog for two of the hops Thursday and Friday this week.

This first card features the Hibiscus Frame Die. It's simply die cut from white paper with a bit of watercoloring underneath.

Next up is a cute one featuring Kristina's Summer Cuddly Critters with the gorgeous Beachy Waves background. 

And finally.... Surf's Up!!! A set I designed where you can create a fun beach scene with a palm tree, seagull, surfboards, towel, pail and starfish. What??? How fun!!!

I've created a card using the Fa La La Die and Fa La La stamp set for my holiday card. I tried to keep in mind that most of us make multiple cards so keeping it simple is key! I cut strips of papers to add color to my otherwise white on white background and finished up with some Holly from the

Simon Says Stamp Ornate Leaves!

Are you ready for fall? I'm actually not because that means winter is right around the corner. 
BUT... I do like the colors that fall brings.

I've created a couple cards using the Ornate Leaves from the STAMPtember® release. These cards are simple, not really any technique here; I just let the stamps and inks do the job of creating the beauty.

These stamps... oh my my!! So easy...so dramatic! Oh and could that paper go any better with these images? It was amazing that the yellow went so well (I didn't plan it out)!!

I can see the pumpkin image being used as a place setting card for the Thanksgiving table. I used Clementine ink for the main part of the pumpkin, then edged it with Orange Peel ink. The stem was colored with a Peeled Paint Distress Marker. 

I hope you've enjoyed my creations, they were quick and easy to make.
Below is a complete list of everything I've used. 

Thanks for coming by!
