Simon Says Stamp United We Craft PARTY!!



Welcome to the super-special and extra epic United We Craft Blog Party. Today we are celebrating our love of crafting with friends even though we can't be close. We have over 100 participants in this party. You can see the full list HERE.
What a wonderful community and thank you for joining me!! 

I am typically a very mellow person, and even in these times of turmoil, I still remain calm. I'm hoping to send these chill vibes on to you. The card I've created reflects this mood with soft tones of blues, creams, and grays. Does it remind you of a spa? 



I've used a stamp set that I designed called Be Kind. As some of you may know, I'm from California where beautiful Eucaliptus trees are prevalent. These leafy branches are designed from my memories of those majestic trees that I miss so much. I pulled out my pencils to color the leaves so I could softly blend shades together. 




I placed the branch on a die-cut tag that was stenciled using the Simon Says Stamp Tap Dance stencil and Cloudy Sky ink. To finish it up, I added the Bold Thanks die and backed the tag with a panel of Fog cardstock

Be sure to check out the Simon Says Stamp galleries for additional inspiration. Also, we invite you to use the hashtag #SSSUnitedWeCraft on Instagram to share your crafty quarantine sessions with family and to feel connected with this amazing community of makers. 

I truly hope you all are well and keeping safe.
