Simon Says Stamp Masterpiece Box Blog Hop!!!


Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp Masterpiece Box Blog hop!!! If you are coming from YOONSUN'S blog, then you're in the right place! 

What is the Masterpiece box? It's a combination of stamps from some of the best companies in the industry. What's special about it is that the products are not being released yet individually. They are exclusive to Simon Says Stamp right now as a preview of upcoming releases.

I've created 4 cards using some of the images. 
I'll start you out with a cheery Birthday card using the WPlus9 letter stamps.  


I used bright colors of Distress inks, inked up the solid stamps, misted with water and stamped. Once those were dry, I stamped over with the outline letters in black ink. The P's and D don't have outlines so I used a pen to create my own lines. Ohhh... and note, I stamped the D upside down, but I like it!!


My next card uses the Hero Arts layering Cardinal for a Christmas themed card.


I hadn't tried the Hero Arts layering stamps until now, they are amazing! I just made sure I lined up the eye of the cardinal when stamping all the layers. I used SSS Lipstick Red, Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany Distress ink and Archival Black ink on top. 


Oh Baby... these Reverse Confetti Onsies are cute!


I used soft tones of ink such as Simon Says Stamp's Apricot, Mint Candy and Duckling, then used the coordinating die to cut them out.


Finally, my favorite!! I'm a dog person and these guys just crack me up!! All the images in the Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs stamp set are hilarious!!


I stamped him with black ink onto Kraft cardstock and colored in with my color pencils. I cut him out and cut a little further into his mouth so I could add the bone. 



Before I send you off hopping, I have a few things for you to note. 

Supplies are LIMITED. Once Simon Says Stamp sells out of the Masterpiece Box, they will NOT be restocking.

Simon Says Stamp started taking preorders for the Tim Holtz Crazy Dog stamps last week. Since this stamp set is included in the box, anyone who purchased the box can cancel their preorder for the stamp set.

GIVEAWAY
Each stop on the hop is giving away a $25 gift card to Simon Says Stamp! Be sure to leave comments along your way for a better chance to win!


Ok, your next stop is to the amazing AMY RYSAVY!!

Enjoy!!

I really love the birthday letters with the backward D...did you say that was on purpose? :) The colors are awesome, too! The Hero Arts Cardinal Layering set caught my eye immediately in this kit and your card is beautiful. Every card is outstanding but the birthday and the cardinal cards are my favorites!

Amazing cards. Such variety. Thanks Melanie x

Denise Ward said...

All of the cards are FANTASTIC! I specifically want to thank you for the tips concerning the use of the Hero Arts cardinal stamps. Using the eye as a place to line up the layering pieces is GREAT advice, plus I like the colors you chose. That trio of colors makes for the rich color that cardinals are known to have!. And I also want to say I'm definitely loving the onesie card!! Those stamps are SO CUTE!!!! <3
