SSS Brand Swap

Another late night post from me!  I can’t seem to get the cards made, photographed amd blogged earlier in the night.


Tonight’s card is for a brand swap in one of my card groups. I took several months off but decided to jump in this month. Simon Says Stamp was the chosen brand and I knew I had plenty to choose from!



I started off by stamping almost every image in the set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then I ran that sheet through my Scan N Cut. Then I colored the flowers and leaves with various Copics. The paper strips are from Fancy Pants Attwell and I used a wavy scallop border from SSS on the green piece. The big flowers are popped up on dimensionals and I added a sentiment from SSS Friendship Blooms.


That’s all for now!


Supplies ~

Stamps: Simon Says Stamp Sketch Ranunculus, Friendship Blooms

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black

CS: SU Soft Sky, Copic Xpress It

PP: Fancy Pants Attwell

Other: Simon Says Stamp wavy scallop borders, dimensionals, copics

Monster Mash Valentine



Tonight’s card was a bit of a challenge lol…I was inspired by a card I saw this morning, and a challenge a friend shared with me, to use my Simon Says Stamp Monster Hugs stamp set. I knew the look I was going for but it was a bit difficult since I haven’t masked my images before. I will admit that I am a lazy stamper! After a few attempts, I finally got it how I wanted it.


This is the card I am entering in Tuesday Throwdown’s Monster Mash challenge~

2015 Card 17 - SSS Monster Hugs


We’ve established that I love stitched dies, right? I used my MFT Stitched Tag Stax for the first time tonight. I thought about adding a bow but it didn’t like it, so I added a silver heart brad from my stash. The little hearts are leftover from a card I made a few nights ago.


Have a great night!
