Simon Says Stamp blog party!

Welcome to Simon Says Stamp United We Craft Blog Party! Sadly, Simon Says Stamp is unable to ship at the moment due to the global pandemic we are experiencing all over the world, so everyone at the party is crafting with older products from Simon Says Stamp, and we encourage you to do the same.

I stamped the whole of the Floral Mix background stamp from Simon Says Stamp in black ink onto Neenah solar white cardstock, and I coloured it with Copic markers.  I cut the panel in half, and adhered half to a white card base. I then used the Love Shadow Wafer Die cut from black cardstock and vellum, and added a little sentiment strip using the Tiny Words stamp set.

For this second card, I used the other half of the stamped and coloured panel, but the sentiment uses the Big Thanks Shadow die along with another sentiment from the Tiny Words stamp set.

I also want to encourage you to get crafty with your family while you're staying at home, and also with family and friends from a distance via Skype, Zoom, whatever take your fancy! Catching up with friends and family is so very important at the moment, and sharing some crafty goodness with them is always fun!
 If you've been doing some home crafting, post a photo to Instagram or Facebook with the #SSSUnitedWeCraft hashtag so we can all see what you've been up to!

I had a catch up with a crafty friend of mine yesterday - Anne-Marie and her children were painting Easter Eggs with crayon wax resist and gouache.

It did me a world of good to be able to have a quick chat with my friend, and see what she and her kids had been up to. (Anne Marie had actually set up an obstacle course for the kids throughout the house using painters tape on the floor! So much fun!) Love you, AM!

(Sorry for the poor quality photos - it's the best I could get from a screenshot of a Zoom meeting!)

Thanks so much for visiting! Stay safe :)


  1. Your cards are so beautiful! Love your coloring!

  2. Loving your colorful cards, Michelle! Nice and cheery!

  3. Wow! Your Copic blending is so good that I thought you watercolored those gorgeous flowers. Many thanks to you and Simon Says Stamp for inspiring me as we stay in and flatten the curve. 🏡💙
