Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Designer Spotlight

Hello to you! Today I am thrilled to be guesting on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

Such fun! The first challenge of the month is


We are showcasing Simon Says Stamp products this week, but you don't have to use them to join.

Here comes my take:

I started with a panel of white cardstock. First, I stamped the heart image from Pawsome Love multiple times, always masking the hearts before stamping the next. Now I inked the background using Distress Oxide inks. Using the MFT Confetti Stencil, I added a bokeh effect with white pigment ink. After I had removed the masks, I colored the balloons with Copic markers and added the strings with a black marker.

I stamped the cat image onto white cardstock, colored it with Copic Markers, fussy-cut it and adhered it to the card with foam tape. Finally, I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of black cardstock, heat-embossed it with white embossing powder, trimmed it and adhered the sentiment to the card.

This cat is hilarious, don't you agree? It makes me smile big! Now I hope you'll join us for this challenge for your chance to win this:

Thank you so much for stopping by, have a wonderful day!
