SImon Says STAMP...

So stamp I did~~~ I am a new design team member for Simon Says Stamp and I get to play with the exclusive line of Simon Says Stamp Clear stamps and Make cards!!! A DREAM job! I stamp EVERY night and I LOVE being creative so how lucky am I!
For this first card I colored the bird in with copics and used my nesties to cut him out and mat him. I thought the color combo was fun and I sponged it with my silver encore pad to make the cuttlebugged swirls show up!






For the love birds... I colored the birds with copics
and then I went over them with Shimmerz because I love that stuff so much I could eat it as you all well know by now! I used my cuttlebug border punch and my scallop edge punch for the red and pink in the middle, and I used my MS doily punch for the edge. I added these super cute little rhinestone flowers for the "bling" factor... and here is card number 2.
"Shimmerz on your tummy, Shame on you!" That is
what I should be singing to my birdies and they all have Shimmerz on their bellies! It looks like they have been in my craft room! I used my nesties and copics here as well and I added the prima flower in the corner as I am so ready for spring! We even got cold in the south last night! I love the pink and green combo and the sentiment is perfect. it is part of this Simon Says Stamp set A Little Birdie Told Me...
For this card, I combined 2 images from the "A Little birdie Told Me" set. I stamped the bird and then I added the nest to the branch... I love the look of the images used that way! Nesties and copics again,and of course Shimmerz on the bird. I used my SU flower punch to make the flowers myself this time. I layered them and added the brad in the middle to hole them together. I of course used my gel pen and my new MS doily edge punch (which I am loving... by the way!) Some sponging around the edge for depth... and here is this card... number 4.
Lastly, this one was so simple... I hate to give it away!!! I stamped and colored the bird with copics. I cut out the image... added some punched branches and adhered it all to a piece of patterned paper. HOW EASY WAS THAT!!! but I love the look of the card! I think this little birdie fits in the scene perfectly!
So that is my post for today! Please have a look at Simon Says Stamp and check out their stamps... they also have plenty of goodies at their store... so get a cup of coffee and settle in for a look around. Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful day!
