Mondays with May: Inspired by Amy Tangerine!

It is a bright and beautiful day, and what could make it better than spending some crafty time with Amy Tangerine? May Flaum reporting in for a happy crafting kind of Monday!

There is a lot to love from the great sticker books to the cute designs of her papers to the way that the products work beautifully with not just her own line, but past lines and other brands as well. I also love that I can scrapbook, make little daybooks, or make cards and other projects too. Today I'm going to share two projects made just for the Simon blog. First, let's get out our embroidery template!

I can't say enough good things about this product - it is so easy to punch the holes (and the kit comes with a needle and threads too!) and you can use it on all kinds of projects. I used mine to make a cute little notebook.
Amy's newest line also has a set of slick writers - which I love! these pens are bright beautiful colors and I love the pop of pink I added just coloring in the details on this little notebook.
Those sheer letter stickers are a favorite too - they look great layered and you can see patterns through them so they make things extra fun.

Now I'm feeling like getting kind of messy and making a special card. To do this I used a credit card and scraped a thick layer of paint in the middle of a chunk of patterned paper. Then I squished my sticker down in the middle and really pressed so the paint would ooze out of the edges. I love this look!
I then layered and stitched my trimmed piece of patterned paper onto cardstock that had been inked (with dylusions). Wanting even more layering, I layered it onto another chunk of white paper and misted with teal dylusions and water.

Shop the supplies:

I am so in love with Amy's products - I just can't stop! You can find another stitched project over on my blog today, as well as a special discount code (limited time only!) for the Simon shop.

  13. All you Superman lovers really need to remember that Superman, no matter how
    strong he is, will get no stronger. You keep forgetting Doomsday killed him and he
    struggles with Darkseid each of the time. All I must
    say is when have you seen the Hulk die? Situation closed, even though Supes is winning The Hulk just needs to
    have madder. Hulk wins 100% of the time.
