I needed a wedding card and decided to use the very large flower arrangement in Simon Says Stamp’s Beautiful Flower 2. Because of it’s size I decided to use a #10 envelope and sized the cardbase to fit. I added a strip of gold and white foiled paper to the bottom and love the way it turned out.
From the previous card that I made I decided to use the negative dots and create a background by adding small foam dots behind each polka dot and adhering them to a white panel. In keeping with the rainbow theme I stamped the cupcake on Bristol Smooth Cardstock and watercolored it with the same Distress Oxide Inks. The sentiment is a die from My Favorite Things.
I ink blended a rectangle of Neena Classic Crest 80# Cardstock with Distress Oxide Inks in a rainbow pattern. Added some balloons from Simon Says Stamp Balloon Bouquet and a sentiment from Honey Bee Hooray and My Favorite Things You Wow Me and had a great masculine birthday card.
I like the previous card so much that I decided to to use the stamp set again. This time I stamped it in the corners with Simon Says Stamp Fog Ink and colored it with Copic Markers. I really didn’t like the way it was looking until I stamped it again with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. Love the pink and purple color scheme.

I had a friend who was recently diagnosed with a rare blood disease, the same that my father had. I wanted to send her a get well card of encouragement. I pulled out Simon Says Stamp’s Sketched Flower and stamped it with VersaMark Ink, heat embossed it with gold embossing powder, and colored it with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I fussy cut around one edge of the image, added to stick back foam to the back and placed it on a turquoise cardbase.

I was in need of a hello card to send to a new member of our ward at church and saw this leftover flowers from another project I had created and decided to put it to good use. I pulled out some patterned paper from My Mind’s Eye Heritage, cut it on the diagonal, and added the pretty flower at the intersection, which a die cut hello added in gold. Turned out pretty and required very little effort.

Back in February I got the Simon Says Stamp Love Always Card Kit of the Month and created several cards. This one I did not publish because I hated the way it turned out. I used Gold Wink of Stella and it took away all the details of the stamp and muted the colors. When I was in need of a birthday card recently I saw this card again and decided to redo. I colored the flowers again with red Copic Markers and glued them right on top of the old. Now it’s a card I want to send to someone, rather than let it gather dust in my card box.
When I get a new stamp I tend to use it several times. I think that makes the purchase worthwhile. For this card I used the Simon Says Stamp Thankful Flowers again, but this time I stamped in the corners on some grid paper by My Mind’s Eye and color the flowers in a love fall orange. Love the way it turned out.
For this card I stamped Simon Says Stamp Thankful flowers on Bristol Smooth paper and used my ZIG Real Brush Markers to color the image. I used My Favorite Things Elegant Rectangle to set it off on a green card base.

My younger sister Susan loves red, just like me. I recently got the Simon Says Stamp Thankful Flower stamp and decided to use those flowers, coloring them in many hues of red. I fussy cut the bottom to allow for the beautiful paper from My Mind’s Eye about family to peek through.
