Now let’s dive into the projects! This first group of cards features the new Spice Garden Combo Set. This gorgeous set was illustrated by Helen Dardik.
For my first card I used an easel card design to create a fun pop-up spice card card! Please check out the video below to get all the details on this card.

Next up is a similar pair of cards featuring the Spice Garden Stamp Set and matching die.
For these two cards, I stamped several images from the Spice Garden Stamp Set onto watercolor paper and watercolored the images in with Distress Inks: Lucky Clover, Cracked Pistachio, Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint, Mowed Lawn, Weathered Wood, Rusty Hinge & Pine Needles.
I then die cut the images with the matching dies when they were dry.
I also created patterned backgrounds using the new Arrowhead Stamp Set with Waffle Flower dye inks: New Fish in Pond, Peace of Mind, & Like a Pro.
Next up is the Little Painters Combo! This fantastic set was illustrated by Big Bear & Bird.
For this card I first created an alcohol inked background. I then stamped and copic colored several images from the Little Painters Stamp Set.
When I had finished coloring I die cut all the images out with the matching dies and then mounted then to my card front with foam tape. The sentiment is from the Rainbows Stamp Set from Waffle Flower’s April release.
Next up is a group of cards created the adorable Gym Rat Combo! This set was illustrated by the unbelievably talented Liz Mytinger and I adore it immensely!!!
I created the backgrounds for this trio of cards with some tone-on-tone stamping using several of the smaller stamps from the Gym Rat Stamp Set.
I used Distress Ink to create the tone-on-tone look. I used Crack Pistachio for the mint, Worn Lipstick for the pink, and Shaded Lilac for the purple cardstock.
I then stamped the focal images in VersaFine Onyx Black onto watercolor paper and then painted them in with Distress Inks: Rusty Hinge, Antique Linen, Weathered Wood, Gathered Twigs, Worn Lipstick, Lucky Clover, Cracked Pistachio, Shaded Lilac, and Black Soot.
When I had finished watercoloring I die cut all the images out with the matching dies. I then adhered the stamped background panels to their card bases and then adhered the images on top with foam tape.
Next up is a fun shaker slider card!
I actually created a video for this card and you can check it out at Simon Says Stamp Blog on June 7th.
Let’s move onto the stunning Moon & Stars Combo! I love using Panel dies to create quick and easy shaker cards, and I just could resist using the Moon & Stars Panel Die from the Moon & Stars Combo to create, not one but two shaker cards!!
I chose a welcome baby theme for my first shaker card. I first created the rainbow striped background with the Plaid Play Stamp Set and WF inks (Daydreaming, New Fish in Pond, Chirp Chirp, You Said What, Oh Happy Day, Safe Choice, & Happy Go Lucky). I then die cut the Moon & Stars Panel die from white cardstock, making sure to die cut the strip of stars twice.
I then stamped and silver heat embossed a sentiment from the Moon & Stars Stamp Set onto the panel and the moon die cut from the Moon & Stars Panel Die. I then constructed my shaker card, filling it with Sprinkles – Star Bright and Diamonds – Dewdrop from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards.
My next shaker card has a very different look, a more traditional starry sky look.
First, I stamped and gold embossed stars from the Moon & Stars Stamp Set onto an A2 panel and a sentiment onto an panel cut with the Moon & Stars Panel Die. I then ink blended Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire over both panels.
Next constructed the shaker card filling it with gold and clear sequins. I finished off the card with two star strips cut from gold cardstock with the Moon & Stars Panel Die. I also cut an arrow with the new Mini Arrow Die.
Next up is the new Arrowhead Stamp Set! This is a gorgeous background stamp, prefect for so many techniques. I do a little ink overlapping for the next two cards and I love the beautiful backgrounds created with this technique.
I used Waffle Flower inks to create the backgrounds. I used Happy Go Lucky, Daydreaming, New Fish in Pond, Chirp Chirp, You Said What, Oh Happy Day, & My Pleasure for this card.
I also used the new Mini Arrow Die and Tiny Painted Heart Die to create a 3-D embellishment. The sentiment is from the Moon & Stars Stamp Set.
I Happy Go Lucky, You Said What, Oh Happy Day , & My Pleasure for my second card. And completed this card with another sentiment from the Moon & Stars Stamp Set.
Last but definitely not least is the Hip Hip Hooray Combo Set. This set was also illustrated by Liz Mytinger and it also has an 80s exercise theme as well but this time with hippos!
I first stamped and copic colored the hippos. I then ink blended Wilted Violet and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxides at the top and bottom of an A2 panel. Next I die cut the hippos twice out of the blended panel and the panel of craft foam with the matching die. Lastly, I stamped a sentiment and then adhered both panels to my card base and then popped the colored hippos inside the negative space and added some iridescent sequins.
