January Card Kit, Shari Carroll

Our January 2018 Card Kit, Favorite Person will give you heart eyes and fill your soul with thoughts of love! This sweet, Valentine-themed kit features both adorable and lovely elements that are sure to inspire your creations. The contents of the kit will jump-start your designs of love for your soul mate, BFF, and favorite little ones. Included are 12 beautiful and whimsical single-sided 6×6 patterned papers from the Pebbles Inc. Forever My Always collection, each bursting with shades of pink, red and mint; even touches of black and kraft! The patterned papers are complemented with hand-picked, coordinating cardstock from Simon, as well as a sheet of Neenah Desert Storm.
The pretty, Simon exclusive Really Like You stamp set includes four large sentiments; each feature a cool, all-caps font paired with a gorgeous script. Add accents with various sizes of hearts and two sweet border stamps. You’ll also love the 15 label-style words that can be mixed and matched to your heart’s content!
Rounding out this delightful kit is a so-super- cute sheet of puffy stickers (with metallic gold accents!) from the Crate Paper Main Squeeze collection, plus a gorgeous jar of Vintage Platinum distress glitter from Ranger to add some sparkle. There is also one small Delicata Pink Shimmer ink pad from Tsukineko (such a pretty pink!), as well as five Simon envelopes (chosen to coordinate perfectly with the kit!).
You’ll find it easy to create so many wonderful things to express your love of the people in your life! Our January Card Kit, Favorite Person will absolutely put you in the Valentine’s Day mood!

Waffle Flower Crafts NEW Release: Stitched Love

Hi friends! Happy Tuesday! Please welcome back the fabulous Channin Pelletier as a guest on our blog today! She is using BRAND NEW Waffle Flower Crafts stamps that are perfect for Valentine’s Day or anytime you’d like to share some love! Be sure to watch the video and enjoy!

Waffle Flower Crafts NEW Release: Stitched Love

Hello everyone! It’s Channin here and I’m thrilled to on Simon Says Stamp’s blog today sharing how to create this adorable card using some new products from Waffle Flower Crafts!

I just love all the cross stitch-themed sets by Waffle Flower and this Stitched Love Stamp Set is definitely another winner. I love that there are matching dies making positioning these pears an absolute breeze!

First, I stamped a woodgrain background on an A2 card base (8 ½” x 5 ½”) made from white cardstock using the Layering Woodgrain Stamp Set. I used Waffle Flower inks, My Pleasure and Tickled Pink. I then stamped both pears from the Stitched Love Stamp Set in Distress Oxide Twisted Citron on some white cardstock. Then without even cleaning the stamps, I partially inked the pears with Distress Oxide Peeled Paint and stamped again. This creates a gradation on the pears and creates a nice sense of volume. Next, I stamped the second layer for the pears in Peeled Painted, then the stems in Walnut Stain, and lastly, their little faces in VersaFine Onyx Black. I then stamped the largest heart from the set in My Pleasure and then partially inked it up in Candied Apple and stamped the heart again. Next, I die cut the images out with the Stitched Love Matching Dies and then stamped a sentiment on card front in VersaFine Onyx Black. Lastly, I adhered the die cut images with foam tape.

Thank you for joining me today! Have a wonderful day!
