Seasons Givings Blog Hop (+Giveaway)

by | Dec 31, 2019 | Backgrounds, Birthday, Blog, Giveaway, Happy Thoughts, Ink Blending, Quick & Simple, Simon Says Stamp, Thanks

Happy New Year, my friends! It has been a year around here for sure. I am glad to be closing the door on 2019 and so looking forward to a bright new year with a clean slate for 2020. Let’s bring in this new decade right! $50 gift card to Starbucks? I think that will do!

I am sharing this post as a stop on the Seasons Giving Blog Hop. This year celebrates year 8 of the hop and it looks to be full of talent, once again! Sit back, relax, and take a stroll on through. I’m keeping my post brief as I there are so many to sites to visit, but they are worth it! Every stop on the hop has a giveaway!

I adore you…. we talking mocha or recipient? Both, I say!

Create this project by ink blending Hero Arts Indigo and Aquatic inks onto Simon Says Stamp’s Audrey Blue cardstock (or ink blend on white with a bit more color to create the same look). Then ink blend Hero’s Unicorn White ink over Simon Says Stamp’s Winter Floral stencil.

Die cut three Simon Says Stamp Picture Book Mochas and nest together adhering flat to card after adding a touch of Copic markers in C01 and Coo to the base of each cup. Pop whip on top with foam tape. Die cut Simon’s I Adore You sentiment in gold glitter cardstock. Adhere finished project to folded card base.

I don’t often decorate envelopes, but it does happen occasionally. When I do succeed it needs to be generic enough to match up with a variety of cards. Likely, I have not even yet considered its partner!

This stamp set, Good Mail Day by Cathy Zielske for Simon Says Stamp, totally inspired me to create an envelope. The set is hilarious and embodies Cathy’s humor to a T. If you don’t follow her on social media, I recommend it!

Super easy to create by ink blending a hot pink envelope with with Hero’s Crimson ink.

Draw white lines for a pop of detail with a straight edge and a white Sakura Gelly Roll pen.
