April Reveal | Your Next Stamp

It is time for this month's stamp reveal at Your Next Stamp today!!!
We have so many cute stamps with matching dies, gumdrops and a fishy background being released today. It is so exciting when new products are up for grabs.
In order for us to share these new products we are having a BLOG HOP today with the design team members and guests. The hop starts today until April 7th so hop around and check out the amazing cards this team has created. If you'd like to win a Gift Certificate to the store ...keep reading!

Today I'd like to show you a few cards I created using the NEW PRODUCTS:
Fishy Background
and the Just Keep Floating Stamp Set with Dies.

I first stamped the background image on white Neenah 80lb Solar White Cardstock and then added some Distress ink. I colored by little floating kitties using Copic Markers.
I used the metal dies made for these images and cut them out - no fussy cutting for me!
I then added some dimensional adhesives behind the kitties and floating donuts to create some dimension.
 I stamped the sentiments on black cardstock with versamark and did some heat embossing using white embossing powder. This little background stamp is so versatile and if you wanted to color each individual fishy you could! The kitties are super cute in this set and could be used for so many cards. I have a few already created ;) 

I hope you enjoyed your time here and please come join the other team members on this reveal day!

Simple & Sweet | Simple Stories

Hello Friends!

This layout is called Simple & Sweet using the Spring Farmhouse collection. As you know I don't fuss about my titles that much and this layout is no exception. I used a diecut from the Bits & Pieces and found one that would be perfect for my niece's attitude and simple pleasures. If you ever feel stuck with a title perhaps look thru those diecuts and pick one that you can relate with. You can always emphasize a title by adding dimensional adhesive or surrounding it with flowers or other embellishments.

I started my base with an Elmwood background from the SN@P! Basics Paper Pack. If you don't have this collection in your stash -- go buy one! It is a must have. I wanted this layout to have layers and have of those gorgeous 6x8 papers. I love the smaller paper patterns because they allow me to use small photos and they don't overcrowd my page or photos. Does that make sense? I also wanted to mat some of those papers and I used the Simple Basics Kit that match the Simple Farmhouse collection beautifully. 

The Simple Basics Kit includes solid colored cardstock papers that can be used for cards, base colors on a layout and so much more. I used these papers to mat my patterned papers. You can see on this picture that I have them matted in assorted colors. I love that little extra pop of color. Cute right?

Adding those solid colors behind my patterns added some extra color on my page and made them visually pleasing. Try something new today! Maybe you have left over cardstock or solid colored papers that you can use on your next layout. Give it a try! Visit Us on Instagram @SimpleStories_ and @KristineDavidson for more projects using Simple Stories.

Chow for Now!
