Simon Says Stamp Sunshine Release Blog Hop

 


Hello Crafters! 

You've reached the last spot on Simon Says Stamp's Sunshine Release Blog Hop! 
This two day hop has been filled to the brim with inspiration! 
You should have arrived from the fabulous Olga Direktorenko 
If you're just joining you can start at the Simon Says Stamp Blog 
If you've been super busy all week and somehow missed the whole hop you can start with Day One here. 

Before we get to the card for today I just wanted to mention that Simon as an extra special something going on with this release! 


Between now and 11:59 pm EDT you can use the code: SUNSHINE to get a gift stamp set with any purchase. You can shop the entire collection here. 
They are also doing their usual generous giveaways and by leaving a comment you enter yourself into the chance to win a $25 gift card to the store. 



It's no secret I adore Suzy's Watercolor prints and this release didn't disappoint. I absolutely love these Sweet Treats prints and I thin they are perfect for summer. Especially because it's really easy to grab your coloring medium of choice and carry them on the go. 


I used Copics to do all my coloring today. I kept the color scheme pretty simple sticking with the traditional "chocolate, vanilla, strawberry" flavors in my sundae. The red adds a fun pop of color into an otherwise monochromatic color scheme. 


Another thing that I love about these paintables is that even though they are premade card fronts you can add things to really make them your own. I decided to do a woodgrain table for my sundae to sit on. This is really easy to do and adds quite a bit of interest to the card. You can see an indepth video tutorial on woodgrain here


Speaking of color I thought it would be fun to add a bit of color on my "wall" to offset all those beautiful neutrals. Blue is my go to color for things like this because blue is so gorgeous it goes with everything. Blue is my boyfriend in case you didn't know :) 
I added a coat of glitter onto the toppings and called it a day. 

You can watch all the coloring and hear my random long weekend ramblings in the video below 



If you missed any of the stops along the way here's the entire list 


 Thank you guys so much for joining us today! 
I hope you have an amazing weekend!

  65. Last, last lucky last on the blog hop (Australianism ;-) You and your woodgrains are amazing. I love watching how you transfer a white piece of card stock to a piece of timber. When I start getting some copics, I might just give it a try. I have only just started card making and slowly starting to grow my stash of goodies, copics are coming but other things are needed first lol. These card fronts are cute and fun. I have absolutely loved the Sending Sunshine release from SSS and the blog hop. So many techniques, so much learning, so much inspiration, so many new beautiful products as well as an abundance of talent and fun. Thank you for sharing. I feel like Ice Cream now lol.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Great inspiration, Kelly! Love your ideas!

  131. I'm always happy to see people use Suzy's prints, because sometimes I feel like those get forgotten among all the new stamps and dies, but I really like these too! I love how you were able to add your own spin to the design without having to reinvent the wheel. Since this doesn't have a video, I hope that you were able to color this out in the backyard with Peanut playing nearby. :D Thanks for sharing!
