Beep! Beep!!!

It's ANYTHING GOES time on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! The Design Team is playing with Penny Black products this week. I absolutely HAD to get this stamp when I saw it!!! After all, I DO drive one! *insert winky face here* You don't have to use Penny Black to play along, bug if you have some, we'd love to see what you do with them!

Life is Better With Friends by Jennifer Ingle #JustJingle #SimonSaysStamp #cards #PennyBlack




This is the Penny Black Miniful Hedgehog stamp. You guys. It's a Mini Cooper. And a hedgehog. And a couple of other cute animals, to boot. For REALS, it is fabulous. For reals, though. For reals. I used my Tombow markers and a waterbrush to watercolor the image. This was a new method for me, but it was a fun one to try and I like how bold the colors are! The Sun is from the Simon Says Stamp My Sunshine stamp set and the sentiment is borrowed from the MFT Tickled Pink stamp set. Don't be afraid to mix and match those stamp sets! Even if they are from different brands!

I added the 'chrome' with a silver pen and then used Glossy Accents to create a glass look over the windows once the watercolor had dried. Because this is all on watercolor paper, it stood up very well to all these treatments! Love that! You can find my complete supply list below.


Now it is YOUR turn! Create something fabulous (just make sure it is NEW, no backlinking is allowed), and link it up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog for your chance to win a $50 Gift Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store! Yup! It's THAT easy! We can't WAIT to see you there!

Have a Happy!

P.S. I apologize for the light content around here as of late. We are moving house and things are a bit crazy and my studio is 100% out of commission at the moment. I will be back up and running in a couple of weeks! Thank you for your patience.

Bliss

Bliss. I'd like to find some bliss right about now. Life is a bit crazy in my house at the moment. We have our beautiful new puppy keeping us on our toes and we are moving house next week, so the place is a bit of a disaster as boxes are being packed and stacked and such. I like my routine and I like things to be in their place. Nothing is routine right now and nothing is in it's place. LOL! But, alas, it will all iron out soon and I am looking forward to our bright, happy new apartment. It has WONDERFUL natural light. I think that is what I am most excited about! LIGHT!

I created this card using the awesome July embellishment kit from Pinkfresh Studio. Yup, it's awesome. I know I say that every month, but there is a reason for that! Seriously, though! I love the elements in this kit! It is one of my favorites for sure!

I used one of the fabulous dip dyed canvas tags along with the Bliss acrylic word made for PFS by Color Cast Designs. I am in LOVE with these acrylic words! The washi tape made a perfect border and the little cloud is from the stamp set, I simply colored it with Copics.

Pinkfresh Studio kindly sends me the kits as a member of their Design Team to showcase. To see more awesome stuff be sure to check out the Pinkfresh Designs blog and Instagram!

Sparkle and Shine!

Hello, friends! It's time to SPARKLE AND SHINE! Yup, folks! That is the challenge this week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog! We want to see your project Sparkle and Shine! The Design Team is showcasing Pretty Pink Posh products this week. That means LOTS of awesome sequins and some fun dies, too! You don't have to use Pretty Pink Posh to play along, but if you have some, we'd love to see what you do with them!

Sparkly Hello by Jennifer Ingle #JustJingle #SimonSaysStamp #PrettyPinkPosh #SpectrumNoir

I had some fun with Pretty Pink Posh sequins, my clear Wink of Stella, and a couple of favorite Simon Says Stamp exclusives! I stamped the grid pattern in black on white and then used some favorite Spectrum Noir colors to fill in a few of the squares with color. I then added sparkle to some of the squares with the Wink of Stella. The die cut sentiment pops off the card and the sequins add a bit of sparkle while also adding to the graphic design of the card. You guys, for reals, I love this one. I really do. I wish you could see it in person. It's pretty. I promise. 

Sparkly Hello by Jennifer Ingle #JustJingle #SimonSaysStamp #PrettyPinkPosh #SpectrumNoir

Sunshine is My Favorite Accessory


The Simon Says Stamp Splash of Color release is now LIVE! YAY!!!! SO many fabulous new goodies in this release! I am particularly excited about the new ink colors! It really is a fantastic collection of inks. And yes, I am an ink whore. Of this I am aware, but for reals, you guys... Simon inks are definitely some of my most used inks. They are fantastic!

Heidi and her crew kindly sent me some new stamps, dies, and an ink pad to play with and I am loving them!

Sunshine is My Favorite Accessory by Jennifer Ingle #JustJingle #SimonSaysStamp #SSSSplashOfColor


I combined the new Happy Block Greetings stamp set and the brand new Scallop Stitches Dies along with another stamp set from the Color of Fun release to create this summer time inspired card! I love this sentiment! Isn't THAT the truth, though? For reals.

Sunshine (details)>


That gorgeous teal/aqua-whatever-you-want-to-call-it ink color is called Lake Shores and it really is a fantastic tone. I love it! I combined it with the Simon Says Stamp Duckling and Slate. I really do love great ink. I just can't even help it.

All of the links you find in this post are affiliate links, and as usual, your support is always appreciated. All artwork and opinions are my own!

NOW... GO SHOPPING, DUDE! For reals! This is a GOOD one!

Also, just a reminder: You can find me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest!

Get in Shape!

Here is the good news: I am not going to make you exercise. I AM, however, going to encourage you to take part in this week's Get in Shape Challenge on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog! We want to see you create shaped cards! It can by ANY shape other than square or rectangle. The design team is playing with Lawn Fawn products this week, making our shaped cards EXTRA adorable! YAY!

Hamster Hello by Jennifer Ingle #SimonSaysStamp #LawnFawn #JustJingle #MFTStamps #cards


I chose to use one of my MFT dies to create an easel/chalkboard shaped card. It's not a rectangle, dude. It has legs. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it. For reals, though, I love this Die-Namics Blueprint shape for cards. It's just too much fun!!! I pulled out the Lawn Fawn Handsome Hamster stamps to create a fun little 'chalk' scene on my board using Simon Says Stamp white pigment ink.

Hamster Hello by Jennifer Ingle #SimonSaysStamp #LawnFawn #JustJingle #MFTStamps #cards


I layered the Lawn Fawn hello die cut over the same cut cut from white foam to give it dimension and an extra layer of white. I used the triangles from the Blueprints set to cut the banner pieces from gingham paper. Gingham CUTENESS, that is.



And now it's your turn! Create a shaped card (not square or rectangle!) and link it up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog for your chance to win a $50 Gift Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store!


Have a Happy!
