Simon Says Stamp Full Bloom Release

Hi peeps. I am popping in to share a set of trio that I made for Simon Says Stamp Fresh Bloom release. I get to play with Dog & Cat Dress Up set and as animal lover  this is totally right up my alley. :)

I decided to make a trio of mini cards and am super happy with the way these cards turned out.

For the background I started by blending in some distress oxide ink and then trim and emboss it with We R Memory Keepers embossing folders. I am a bit obsess with this embossing folder at the moment. If you see my cards on Instagram, you see I use them quite a bit lately.

Once the background done, I stamp, color and fussy cut them all and adhere to the panel. Sentiment is from SSS Tiny Words.

Now, this one below somehow make me think of my pug. Although, the tail need to be more curly to be a pug. Hah!

All the sets from this release is now available in store at Simon Says Stamp. I, myself is very curious and excited to see all the sets! Well peeps, that's all from me today. I'll be back on Friday for SugarPea Sweet 2 repeat blog hop. See you then. Cheers... :)

The Ton Washi Tape Release

Hi peeps!! The Ton is celebrating their first washi tape release with two new washi tapes! This is a small release but it's one that's close to Effie's heart because the designs are based off of her actual watercolor work.

I can tell you that I actually gasp when I first got them. They're so pretty with the rose gold foiling on some of the leaves. I am not kidding, I love it so much that I actually made these 2 cards the very same day I received the tapes. Let's just say I've been waiting to share these cards.

For both cards, I used the Pink Peonies washi tape.

For the 1st card, I started by stamping the Mini Heart Cling Background directly on my card base with Versarmark ink as I want to keep the background subtle. Next, I cover a panel of cardstock with Pink Peony washi tape and then die cut it with Monarch Pop Up Butterfly dies.

This dies is meant to create pop up butterflies for the inside of the card, but with a little trimming & adjustment you can easily use it for the front of the card. Basically, this card will need to be mailed in square envelope to keep the wings safe. :) Finished by stamping sentiment from Toned Squares set.

Next one is a simple & quick one. Well, both of them are actually pretty quick cards.

For this one, I adhere the washi tape to a panel of cardstock and trim it out at an angle. Then die cut the sentiment using Love & Hugs Word Plate Dies from white cardstock (3 times) and from foil cardstock. Adhere panel to the card base and layered the words so it pop out a bit. Finished by adding a strip of matching foil.

There are some free gifts with purchase promotions ongoing. Head over to The Ton Stamps' blog for more details.

Also, The Ton is currently have a 30% off non new release stamps and dies sale. The code is "BYEFEB30". You btter take advantage of this sale as they're only last for a limited time.
