Simon Says Stamp | Fluttering By Blog Hop

Hello lovelies, I am excited to be part of the Simon Says Stamp Latest release Fluttering By blog hop.

Fluttering By Blog Hop 800x400 (1)

If you haven’t checked out the latest release it can be found here, I will also link to individual products at the end of this post.

Also make sure you check out day 1 of the hop here.

If you are hopping along you should have arrived here from the lovely Rubeena Ianigro and the next stop on the hop from here is the talented Lea Lawson

I have several cards to share with you today. This was definitely one of my favourite Simon releases…I know, I know I say that every time.

The first card I am sharing is created using the new Centre Cut Burst Rubber Stamp. This is large background style stamp, but the centre can be removed and used for a number of different looks. I LOVE this idea and love that it means you get more choices for your money.


I used just the centre part of the stamp along with Distress Oxides Inks and stamped onto some Neenah Desert Storm card stock, I overlapped the stamping and went in a rainbow type order. I then used one of the stamps from the new Under The Sea Animals Stamp set for the sentiment. To finished off I added some clear droplets.


For the next card I used the Make Your Mark Stamp set & Happy Birthday Script die.


I really like that with that set you can create borders and patterns but they have also included some circle layering type stamps, they was really fun to use to create this quick birthday card. I also used the new Happy Birthday Script die and die cut it from some Gold card stock and adhered into a vellum circle. I cannot wait to play around more with this stamp set.

As soon as I saw the Under The Sea Animals I knew I wanted to make a note card set.

This set is insanely cute and fun.


All the elements were coloured with Polychromo Pencils and i fussy cut them out (coordinating dies are avalible but i don’t have them yet).


For the background on each image I used Distress inks to create the “sea” and “sand” looks and added some water droplets.


I wanted to keep the cards fairly CAS so I stamped the sentiments straight onto the main piece using Simon’s Black Ink.


To finish each card off I added some white gel pen details and I couldn’t resist adding some googly eyes on a  couple of them.

This snail is my favourite, totally love him and he was so fun to colour. I just couldn’t resist adding some googly eyes to him.


Now onto the hop details.

Simon is very kindly giving away a $25 gift card for each stop on the hop.

  1. Hey Tracy ! You’ve made such a great variety of cards with this awesome release !! I love them all for sure but the note card set is so freakin cute ! Love from France, Marjorie


  2. Your cards are very clean and elegant and I love that 🙂 I also admire the one with the center cut burst stamped multiple times with oxide inks. It’s gorgeous and from here one could think they were embossed ! congrats 🙂


  3. Super cute cards. I enjoyed the “under the sea” stamp set note cards. Thank you for your inspiration and techniques


  4. What great cards! I love how the distress oxides worked over the kraft and each other. I would have thought they would get cluttered, but instead they look like they were made to be overlapped! Your other cards are fabulous as well; you clearly have a deep creative well of ideas to pull from. Thanks for sharing with us!


  5. That center star with the Distress Oxides is a gorgeous card and is so beautiful on the Neenah Desert Storm cardstock! Just beautiful!


  6. Nice cards. Really like the one where the center cut Burst rubber stamp was used as the background on the lighter kraft cardstock.


  7. Nice showcase of new items! I lean toward 2 piece background stamps. Your multi distress oxide ink colors on kraft colored paper are inspiring. I see all the 2 piece background stamps being used this way.
