This week we are welcoming back the lovely Simona Rebecchi aka Ginny and the Sheep into the Designer Spotlight. If you haven’t visited her blog before then you are in for a real treat!
Simona made a card with a feminine flair and inspirational words showcasing our Simon Says Stamp Sketch Lotus Flowers stamp set on a subtle background made with Stampers anonymous Layering stencil Bubbles and Tim Holtz Crackle 3D Texture Fades embossing folder.
Anna-Karin made a Mother’s Day card in a circular shape. She used the Simon Says Stamp Halftone Circle stamp for the background and the You Shine die for the main sentiment. The two flowers come from the Thoughtful Flower wood stamp and the Thoughtful Flowers stamp set.
Barbara created two feminine floral tags using the Spring Bouquets stamp set from Simon Says Stamp’s new Born To Sparkle collection. To complete her tags she added Idea-ology Paper Dolls, she also used Tim Holtz Sizzix Brickwork 3D Embossing Folder, Ranger Distress Ink Pad Salvaged Patina, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feather to paint the flowers.
Cheiron used the Simon Says Stamp Best Friend Ever stamps and dies along with the Mini Slimline Rectangle dies to create her fun sized card. She created the background using the CZ Design I Like Small Dots stencil along with Wilted Violet Distress Ink. She finished her card with Studio Katia Clear Drops.
Emma used the Simon Says Stamp Spring Blooms Corner Wafer die to make a stencil from acetate, that she then combined with Distress Spray Stains to use on the background of an Etcetera Tag. She framed a Tim Holtz Photo Booth image with die cut Skeleton Leaves which were arranged with Bouquet Findings and a Quote Flair Button.
Kath created an Art Journal page with a feminine floral theme using Simon Says Stamp Spring Bouquets, Magnolia Branches Embossing Folder and Dandelion die. She used Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Latticework Layering Stencil and Distress Crackle Texture Paste to add texture and decorated with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Brushstroke Flowers 1 Thinlits and Idea-ology Found Relatives photo, Entomology Collage Paper, Mini Flair Embellishment, Adornments Heart and Sentiments Label Stickers.
Lols made a ‘hello’ card for a special friend. I used a new XL Rose Bouquet Stencil and a Solid Grid Background Cling Stamp along with a Beautiful Die Set. I used a selection of Distress Oxide Inks and Sprays to color, Modeling Paste to add texture and finished with a liberal sprinkling of Prisma Glitter.
Macarena made a Mother’s Day card using Simon Says Stamp Stronger Together stamp for the background and she combined Tim Holtz Sizzix Alphanumeric Stretch Upper, Lower and Alphanumeric Marquee letters.
Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Simon Says Stamp Premium Dye Ink Pad and Rainbow Pack Multi Size Blender Brushes to distress the background, and Simon Says Stamp Craft Tacky Glue and Big Momma Foam Tape to adhere the embellishments on the tag.
Sandra made a card for her mom’s birthday using the Simon Says Stamp Happy Everything die, Deco Diamonds stamp and Diamond Circles stencil. Her mom’s favorite color is blue, but she also added some pink touches with Distress Paint Spun Sugar.
Zoey made a tag for Mother’s day. She used Kitsch Flamingo to add some color to the background of the tag. She used Tim Holtz Layering Stencil BUBBLE and Tim Holtz Idea-ology BOTANICAL Collage Paper to decorate it. She also used Simon Says Stamp MOTHER’S DAY FLOWERS Wafer Dies sssd112341 All The Feels as for sentiment.
