🌈🐶 STAMPtember PARTY! 🌈🐶 Simon Says Stamp

Hello crafty friends!

My favorite month of the year has come….and it’s not September….it’s STAMPtember!
And if you don’t know what STAMPtember is, well…be prepared because you’ll get excited too!

It’s a month long celebration organized by Simon Says Stamp and during the month there will be a LOT of exclusive collaborations between simon and your favorite brands! (My Favorite Things, Tim Holtz, Mama Elephant, Clearly Besotted…and many many more!)

And today, together with all the friends of the Simon Team, we’ve organized a fun STAMPtember Party! You can find so many inspirations today using the new Simon Says Stamp Release!

and let me tell you….in this release there are so many products that stole my heart! one of these products is the new “BUCKEYE LEAF” die! So I’ve cut out some copic friendly paper with this die to create my own autumn leaves!

As always I had to color them with my copic markers…and yes, coloring die cuts is becoming one of my favorite things to do! After the coloring I wanted to added a little extra touch to the leaves….because you know, I’m just EXTRA!

So I’ve hand drawn the raindrops and guess what? I have a tiny tutorial for you!

I love how they turned out and I’m thinking about making these leaves in other colors. What do you think? which color would you choose for these leaves?

💚💜 Halloween Crows – Simon Says Stamp 💜💚

Hello everyone!

And welcome back to my blog! It’s so nice to see you here!
Halloween is just around the corner and we never have enough Halloween stamps isn’t?

So I was looking through my Simon Says Stamps collection and I’ve found this stamp set that was released last year called “Winter Birds” and I thought….those would look good as Crows! 💜💚

So I’ve used two of them and colored them with dark grey to make them looks like crows! Of course I’ve added them a witches hats…because why not?! 💚💜

it’s incredible how much potential all our stamps has, isn’t? If you only think that this stamps set was supposed to be used for Christmas! Now I can see these birds colored in bright colors for the summer season and I’m already in love!

✨🧪Just add a little magic – Simon Says Stamp🧪 ✨

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog!

I’m so happy to be back and talk with you about this latest coloring I’ve made! Halloween is just around the corner and we have to make our best potions before that day, isn’t? And this cute little bear things just the same!

The little bear is part of a Simon Says Stamp set that I’ve designed a while ago but I’ve decided to transform it in a halloween character just adding him a witch hat!

After doing that I’ve hand drawn some potion bottles and colored each one in a different color! Of course everything is colored with my beloved Copic Markers and with a few details made with a white gel pen and white paint for the reflection on the glass!

if you check my instagram you’ll find a video on how I’ve drawn the reflection on the glass!

❤️🍁Falling leaves – Simon Says Stamp 🍁❤️

Hello Crafty friends! Nice to see you back to my blog!

I’m here today to share with you another fall card…you know, fall is my favorite season of all the time and when it’s this time of the year I always pull all my fall stamps + dies and enjoy some me-time!

After all the bright colors of spring and summer is nice to go back to neutral colors in this season!

One of my favorite things to do during fall is appreciate all the color changes of the leaves. I have a huge tree right in front of my terrace and seeing all the colors change on that tree really makes me feel the coziness of the seasons! So for today’s coloring I’ve tried to re-create the color change of the leaves.

For this card I’ve used a stamp set that has all those geometric little leaves and decided I wanted to make full branches of leaves so I’ve stamped each leaf multiple times and then connected one with the others with a hand drawn branch. 🍁❤️

its’ pretty simple to do but very effective! Also, this trick is super handy when you have a small leaf but you wanted a bigger image! ❤️🍁

Hello everyone!

I’m so happy to be back on the blog because I have a new coloring to share with you! And because you always love my coloring step-by-step tutorial, I’ve decided to bring more and more of them!

For today’s coloring I’ve used this adorable “Winter Birds” Stamp set by Simon Says Stamp to show you how I color my favorite light-blue shades!

Please let me know in the comments below asking what you’d like to see in the future tutorials! I’m so curious to know what you find difficult to color! Maybe it can be a specific technique/texture, or maybe a specific color!

I’ve only used four markers and one black pencil to create this beautiful shade of light blue and you can use this little tutorial not only to color blue birds, but for anything blue! Imagine all the possibilities!

❄️👑Guess the Princess Collection pt.5 – Simon Says Stamp 👑❄️

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog!

It’s time for another princess inspired milkshake! Actually the character that inspired me today isn’t a real princess it’s more a Queen…but I know you’ll understand who was the inspiration for this coloring!

Honestly this coloring was the most challenging for me because coloring ice with 40°c isn’t that simple *giggle*

Lucky for me I had the perfect stamp set to create this coloring. The stamp is called “Snowflakes Edges” and it include some beautiful edges and individual snowflakes that you can use to complete your coloring!

So I’ve stamped some snowflakes in black and some other with a clear inkpad and then I white embossed them.

after the stamping and drawing I’ve colored everything with my beloved copic markers and of course I’ve added highlights with white gel pen!
