This week we are welcoming back the lovely Susan Babcock aka Susanbcards  into the Designer Spotlight. If you haven’t visited her blog before then you are in for a real treat!

Susan created a special Valentine using Simon Says Stamp’s Blossom Field Embossing Folder and Wreath of Love wafer die. She ink blended the background with Distress Oxide Inks and finished it with a CZ Design Trio of Love sentiment.

Andrea made a tag using Simon Says Stamp’s Mini Hearts dies, two stamp sets from AALL & Create (City Living and On Cloud Nine) as well as Waffle Flower’s Nesting Tags dies.

Anna-Karin made two Valentine Cards this week. The focal puzzle piece heart was done with the Simon Says Stamp Piece of My Heart die, and the resist background was made with the Simon Says Stamp Tossed Hearts background stamp.

Barbara has created two projects that share our theme and the colors of the rainbow! As a basis she used Simon Says Stamp Cardstock#100 Black, the new dies by Tim Holtz Sizzix Bold Text 1, Stacked Tiles Hearts, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Snarky Cat and Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Layered Stencil Bubbles (mini version set 46).

Cheiron created a card inspired by Tim Holtz using the Sizzix Heartbeat die. She combined it with Distress Oxides in a rainbow of colors and finished her card with the Simon Says Stamp Friend Greetings and the CZ Design Trio of Love dies.

Emma created a tag that is full of love! She used the Simon Says Stamp Ring Circles Embossing Folder to create a background for the arrangement of flowers and foliage, die cut using the Sizzix Bloom Colorize Die set by Tim Holtz. She completed the tag with Stitched Scraps and a Sentiments Label.

Kath created “two for the price of one” Valentine cards using the new Tim Holtz Intense Alcohol Pearl Ink and Rose Gold Alloy, Simon Says Big XOXO die, Clear Acetate and Reverse And Back Again Sentiment Strips.

Lols made a Valentine’s card using a Simon Says Stamp Outline Love Die Set and Layering Heart Mandala Stencil along with some gorgeous Red Holographic Card Stock.

Macarena made a very soft and sweet card using Simon Says Stamp Reverse Hearts stencil as a stamp mixing Tim Holtz Distress Fired Brick and Candided Apple Oxide inks. She also used Tim Holtz Sizzix Destination, Large Stems and Faceted Heart dies.

Maura used lots of Simon goodies on her Valentine card. She used the Simon Says Stamp Love Birds die, Simon Says Stamp’s Chunky Hearts Wafer die, and Simon’s Old Letter stamp.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using the paper from Stamperia House of Roses 12 X 12 Paper on the background, Simon Says Clear Stamps XL Love Greetings for the sentiment, and decorated it with Prima Marketing Mauve Dream Sharon Ziv Flowers.

Sandra was inspired by soft colors of pink by using Opal Magic Paint Rose Gold and Infusions Frankly Scarlet, which matched perfectly with the Simon Says Stamp Drawn Hearts stencil.

Zoey used the Simon Says Stamp SUNSHINE Wafer Die to write her sentiment on her little book. She also used the new die Tim Holtz Sizzix SIMPLE PLAID Thinlits Die and Tim Holtz Sizzix STACKED TILES HEARTS Thinlits Dies. She used Distress Ink, Distress Oxide Spray and Distress Spray Inks.

So now it’s YOUR turn to get out your inks, paints and all things arty and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!
