Vicky Papaioannou Loves Paper Smooches!


Hi Bloggers!

Welcome to another exciting day & guest spot on our Simon Says Stamp blog for our STAMPtember™ celebration! I hope you're enjoying these special features as much as we are! Today we feature Vicky Papaioannou.  She has AMAZING talent!!


Vicky (pictured above) is a self-proclaimed lover of all things crafty! She keeps quite busy with her job as a Computer Science teacher, as well as being a wife, and mother to 2 children. But when she's able to, she loves to steal some time away and craft until her heart's content!  Have you ever wondered how we get those awesome product thumbnails at the bottom of our posts?  Or how Challenge blogs get the programming for people to enter their work as thumbnails underneath a challenge?  Ever wonder what the best tool is on earth for sharing?  Vicky and her husband, Aris are the genius founders, developers and creators of INLINKZ.com.   INLINKZ.com connects us all in wonderful ways!

Now I will let Vicky, take it away!

I am thrilled to be here with you today and celebrate STAMPtember™ together! What an honor! 
Simon Says Stamp is my favorite shop. Amazing team of people, thousands of products, best quality of service, unbeatable international shipping rates, coupon codes....What more can you ask? I'm so proud to call Heidi my friend!

STAMPtember™ is a celebration of stamping, so how about a video tutorial using the same stamp set to make three different cards?!

For all three of my cards I have used "Space Cadet" by Paper Smooches. How cute is this set?! 
Here are the cards I made. Make sure to scroll down to watch the video and see the list of supplies used in each of the cards.


CARD 1: "Miss You"
For this card I used a favorite technique I learned from Jennifer McGuire using Ritz Micro Fine Glitter.

 CARD 2: "You're special"
Simple paper piecing. Aren't those aliens just adorable?!


CARD 3: "You've my Universe"
Masculine colors and a telescope. A perfect card for your other half or your little boy!

Supplies:



Please be sure to stop by Vicky's blog "Clips-n-Cuts" to check out more of her fantastic work, and to also take advantage of a special sale from us! You'll only find the special discount code on Vicky's blog, so please hop on over!

See you tomorrow!

  28. I really enjoyed your very visual video. It flowed well, I understood pretty much everything you were doing and of course love the end results.

    One question, what were you applying before stamping with the embossing ink? Was that some kind of anti-static liquid? Very interesting.
