Hi there! Today I have a fun project to share that combines a few Simon Says Stamp exclusives with some really cool WOW products.I used the WOW Melt It Powder & Bluetiful embossing powder to create these delicious colored droplets. I used the Stepping Stones stamp for the background and the Big U stamps & dies for the sentiment.This is something that I’ve been wanting to try ever since I did a make and take at CHA at the WOW booth. The wonderful Marion Emberson was working the booth and that is where I fell in love after she taught me how to make one of these gorgeous rings. She has some great tutorials on the WOW youtube channel as well.Here’s a video showing how I created these embellishments with WOW Melt It Powder. Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hi there! Today I have project to share featuring the gorgeous new Butterfly Kisses stamp set by Mama Elephant.This set has such beautiful images as well as great font combinations for the sentiments. I embossed the images in clear and blended in some Mama Elephant pigment inks.
I used one of the circle dies from Pizazz Pieces to create a window drawing the eye towards the sentiment.Here’s a video to show you how I created this card.

Hi there! Just popping in to share a fun card using the adorable Cute Chicks stamp set designed by Elena from Neat & Tangled for Simon Says Stamp. I love this adorable set. I mean, chicks in a marching band? The band nerd in me is all over that snare drum & trumpet.I stamped the images, colored them with Copics and fussy cut them out. For the background I masked the ground using the A2 Card Curved Edge die and blended in Maliblue & Jellybean ink.Now if only there were a chick playing the trombone. I’d be in hog heaven:) Thanks so much for stopping by!
