Happy Birthday Card (NEW Simon products)


Hi all! Kristina here. :)

Today I have a card using some brand new products from Simon Says Stamp: the Two Tier Banner die, Full Card Hexagon die, and the Happy stamp set.

Since I wanted a cool background behind the Full Card Hexagon diecut, I did some Distress Ink watercoloring. I used three colors for it: Shabby Shutters, Squeezed Lemonade, and Peacock Feathers. Be sure to watch the video to see how I made the background. :)

Anyhow, enjoy!

  5. Samsungs true rival certainly being is interesting when you hear what people have to say about these two leading end tablets.
    The Nexus S, however, has flash while some
    variants, such as the Samsung Vibrant and Captivate, of the Samsung
    Galaxy S do not. Samsung galaxy has been developed as a star model that is available at best bargain deals.

  8. I'm wondering which blogging and site-building platform you might be running? I'm new to running a blog and have been thinking about using the Wordpress platform.
    Do you consider this is a good platform to start with?

    I would be extremely thankful if I could ask you some questions through e-mail so I can learn a bit more prior to
    getting started. When you have some free time, please be sure
    to contact me at: danellequezada@aol.com. Thanks alot :)

  11. Nice masculine card and the background is great!! I read on some blog that you can also run the curled/warped paper through a die cutting machine (Big Shot, Vagabond, etc...) to flatten it. Havent tried to do it yet but makes good sense! Thanks for the lovely card!!

  21. An intriguing discussion is worth comment.
    There's no doubt that that you ought to publish more on this subject matter, it might not be a taboo matter but usually people don't talk about
    these subjects. To the next! Kind regards!!
