💚🍀 All the Greens… – Simon Says Stamp 🍀💚

Hello crafty friends and welcome back to my blog!

So happy to be here today because right before the end of the year I’ve decided to start a new coloring journal! I always start the new year with a new year resolution and this time is a journal!

so I’ve decided to start the journal with a monochrome theme and start with one of my favorite colors ever…GREEN! so I’ve stamped a bunch of Simon Says Stamp images to create a texture all over the page.

after the stamping I’ve decided to color all the images with different shades of green… some are darker and some are lighter! as always I’ve colored everything with my beloved copic markers. the most used color combo it’s been the G09, YG09, YG07, YG03, YG01!

❤️🧡 Born to Sparkle! – Simon Says Stamp 🧡❤️

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog!

I’m so happy to be here writing on the blog today because I’m finally able to share with you a coloring that really means so much to me!
A while back I’ve designed this Pegasus stamp set for Simon Says Stamp but in that period shipping was a mess and so I haven’t got the stamp in time for the release.

Unfortunately when I miss one release with my full calendar isn’t easy to make a spot to show another stamp set in the following month and so this stamp set was sitting on my desk for a while!

Last week I’ve got some free time and I’ve decided to color this cute and show it to you! As I told you, the stamp set is illustrated by me and it’s called “Born to Sparkle”

so after drawing the big snow globe I’ve stamped a few different stamps from the set…the rainbow, the little pegasus, the sparkles and the big star are all from the stamp set….everything else is hand drawn!

For the colors I’ve decided to go for a bright and happy tones with all the warm colors! Yellows, oranges, reds, pinks…and of course I had to add a little bit of grey for the pegasus!

🌸🌺 Four days until the New Release – MFT 🌺🌸

Hello crafty friends and welcome back to my blog!

I know you’re super excited about the new MFT stamps release…well, I’m also super excited! Today i’m showing you a new card which has been a real challenge for me! as you know I’m more a stamps and coloring kind of person but some times I love to play with dies to create something that is out of my comfort zone!

So for today’s card I’ve decided to play with two new dies sets which will be available in the December Release…in just a few days! For this card I’ve used the “Fundamentals Floral” set and the “Complementary Greenery”. Of course I had to add the Alberto-style to them so I’ve cut them out in a piece of copic friendly paper so I could color them!

after I’ve colored all the little pieces with my beloved copic markers I’ve layered them trying to keep a 3 dimensional effect! For all the flowers I’ve tried to keep a warm tones color combo…which I think really goes well with this card, isn’t?

below you can find a detail photo so you can see how much these flowers are 3 dimensional! Really love the finished card!

Thank you so much for being here with me today, don’t forget to come back tomorrow for another countdown day to the new MFT stamps release!

❄️🧚🏻 Five days until the New Release – MFT 🧚🏻❄️

Hello everyone and welcome to a new Countdown day for the upcoming MFT release!

For today’s coloring I’ve decided to play a little with the new “Solid Numbers” die set which include these adorable bold numbers that are so big that they can be easily colored with your favorite coloring medium!

I’ve decided to go for a ice effect for the numbers and then I’ve combined this previously released stamp set with the fairies called “Fairy best friend” that I think match perfectly with the iced theme, isn’t?

This card really makes me think about Frozen even if Elsa and Anna aren’t fairies! 😂❄️

I’ve put everything in a slimline because these big and bold numbers with the fairies and the sentiment couldn’t fit in a regular card! Of course for the coloring I’ve used my beloved copic markers and as alway’s I’ve added some details with my white gel pen!

Thank you so much for being here with me today, don’t forget to come back tomorrow for another countdown day to the new MFT stamps release!

Wishing you a creative day

🌈❄️December Release Blog Hop – Simon Says Stamp ❄️🌈


Hello everyone! 


I’m back to my blog today and I’m super excited because the new Simon Says Stamp release is finally available to purchase! And since its DieCember is all about dies!


and for the occasion Simon Says Stamp Family thoughts to make not only one but TWO amazing blog hops! And today is day two of the blog hop! As you may know I’m not a dies kind of person but when I see one that I like I immediately ask myself how can I use it in my own way!

So for today’s cards I’ve decided to use this embossing folder + die in my own way….of course I had to use copic markers and add a little touch of coloring to it!

So I’ve hand drawn a faux watercolor effect for the background and then added the two snowflakes from the “gilded ornamental” set!

the sentiments are from the stamp set I’ve designed called “sweet tooth bears” and they really go with anything! in one card I’ve stamped it with a light blue ink and in the other one I’ve used a pink one! I really like the two cards that looks so different yet so similar just changing the color palette!

which one of the two cards is your favorite? below you can find the full list of the blog hop! don’t forget to stop at every blog for more chances to win! every stop of the hop has a 25$ coupon! So leave a comment and Simon Says Stamp will pick one of the comment from each blog to give the coupon!

💖🎀 May your Christmas be magical (tutorial) – Simon Says Stamp 💖🎀

Hello crafty friends!

it’s time for a new blog post for Simon Says Stamp and since I love you guys….yes, I made new copic tutorial! This time I’m showing you how I color this adorable ornament from the latest stamp set I’ve designed for Simon Says Stamp!

It is included in the “Magical Christmas” stamp set and some of you asked me “how would you color that big ornament?!” so here we go!

When I was little we did the same christmas tree every year! the colors were reds and golds because you can never get tired of the traditional christmas right? When I grew up and finally had a house of my own I started using the christmas decorations I liked that year! I remember the first year was blue, the following year brown…

In the last couple of years my christmas decorations are white and natural themed…you know, wood, snow… so when it comes to coloring I always enjoy playing with different colors! So for today’s coloring I’ve played with pink!

to get the exact same color you only need five copic colors! and honestly this is a must have color combo for me! RV69, RV29, RV14, RV13, RV10

After the copic coloring I’ve added some details with a white gel pen to give to the ornament the perfect reflections!
