Hey, There!

Let's just cut to the chase, shall we? It's ANYTHING GOES week! Yes, that's right, it's everyone's favorite theme, Anything Goes, on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog this week! The design team is featuring Simon Says Stamp exclusives this week! You don't have to use them to join in, but if you have some, we'd love to see how yo make them shine!

Hey There

Yup. I had a little extra fun with this one. I seriously LOVE these old school sunglasses dies from Simon and I was excited to use them! I paired them, perhaps a bit unexpectedly, with the heart from the I See You stamp set. I love this heart! I colored it with Spectrum Noir markers, using colors that were not too strong, but bold enough to peek through the vellum I used in the glasses just a bit. Because... FUN!!!

Hey There (detail)

Naturally, I added some giant googley eyes. Because: Naturally.

Now it's YOUR turn! Create something AWESOME. Use some Simon exclusives if you would like to, and link it up over on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog for your chance to win a $50 Gift Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp store. Yup. We like giving those away!

Some Kisses and Stuff

Hello, friends! I have a super fun lovey dovey card today featuring some favorites from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps! BUT... before we get there, did you know they are having a sale? 'Cause they are. And you should totally go check it out. For REALS. It's the Ten Things We Love Sale. And, well, we love these things, so you should, too. You will. You DO! Good talk.

And I just so happened to use one of those great sale sets on my card today. HEY! Isn't that fancy and convenient and stuff?! Yup. Totes.

Mwah by Jennifer Ingle

I stamped the grey tic tac toe board first. I then stamped and embossed the sentiment in red embossing powder. I blended some mint ink onto it for a pop of color and then added a few white dots to give the font even more pizzazz. Because: pizzazz.

Have a Happy!


Thank You Beary Much!

It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another AWESOME Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge! This week, our theme is Create with Critters! We want to see critters front and center on your project this week! The Design Team is featuring Lawn Fawn this week. You know how AWESOME Lawn Fawn is when it comes to critter images! You don't have to use them to play along, but if you have some, we'd love to see how you rock them!

Bear Thanks

I pulled out the adorable Party Animals Stamp Set again. It is just TOO cute! I love it! I colored him and then die cut with the Scripty Thanks die to create a layered inset look. 

Bear Thanks (detail)

A touch of patterned paper and a few sequins finish off the design. Now it's your turn! Create something adorable inspired by the Create with Critters theme for your chance to win a $50 Gift Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp store

And if you happen to have your OWN critter at home, don't forget to post a photo! We love seeing your critters!

Here is a recent photo of my little critter, Morgan, cooking with her Daddy. She likes to help. And, obviously, needed to wear a Star Wars apron. Obviously.

Have a Happy!



So, this Avery Elle Hogs and Kisses stamp set exists, therefore, I had to have it. That makes sense, right? Right. Let's go with that. Glad we had this talk.

Smooches by Jennifer Ingle #AveryElle #SimonSaysStamp #JustJingle #ValentinesDay

RIGHT, though?! For REALS, you guys! Cutest images EVER! I colored this ridiculously-make-you-giggle cow with Spectrum Noir pens. I love how you can mix up the sentiments in the heart. The set was designed really well in that regard. LOVE IT! I used a couple of sheets from the Jen Hadfield Cottage Living 6x6 paper pad. SEE! I DO know how to use patterned paper.

Once in awhile.

Smooches (detail)

Those tiny hearts are cut with the Simon Says Stamp Mini Hearts Set die. If, for some reason, you do know own this die, go ye to Simon henceforth and drop $7 on them immediately because it is one of the most handy and useful dies in my entire collection. And that's a large collection, trust me on this.

And with that, I wish a wonderful day for you!

Have a Happy!


Seriously? Thanks.

Four colors. Seems easy enough, right? Create a card using four colors. Well, oddly enough, it was a little tricky. Four goes beyond my CAS two or three, yet falls slightly short of a more layered style of design for me. That, my friends, is why I was excited to try this Paper Smooches Challenge!

I decided to go the clean and simple route, as it is my favorite, for this fun, colorful card.


I die cut these super cute glasses and then adhered thin strips of cardstock behind the negative image to create a fun, playful look. I simply stamped the sentiment from Slang Gang in one of the four cardstock colors (Wisteria from Simon Says Stamp) to tie it in with the image and complete the card.

Seriously? (inside)

The inside has a simple 'thanks' to complete the sentiment.

I had a blast creating this little design. It is fun and playful and sticks to my simple style quite well. I love when a challenge leads me to, not only have fun, but to create a project I love! YAY!

Have a Happy! 


It's Ombré Time!

Hello, all, and welcome to another installment of the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, brought to you by Simon Says Stamp, your one stop shop for all of your paper crafting needs! *And the crowd goes wild!*

Yup. It's a game show opener kind of day. Why? Because that's just the kind of mood I'm in. And I'm in charge around here. So, that's what you get.

Whatever. You know you love it.

The challenge this week is to use the ombré technique on your projects! The design team is featuring Hero Arts products this week. You don't have to use them to play along, but if you've got some on hand, we'd love to see what you do with them!

Ombre thanks by Jennifer Ingle #SimonSaysStamp #HeroArts #RangerInk #JustJingle

I used this AWESOME dot background stamp to create my card for today. I seriously love this stamp! I stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed with white embossing powder on white cardstock. I then used distress inks to create the ombé background. I kind of love it. The sentiment is the Simon Says Stamp Painted Thanks die, cut several times, layered, and then I used Wink of Stella, Glossy Accents, and some super fine glitter to make it sparkle. It sparkles. Lots.

Ombre thanks by Jennifer Ingle #SimonSaysStamp #HeroArts #RangerInk #JustJingle

Now it's YOUR turn! Created something awesome based on the Ombré inspiration and link it up over on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog for your chance to win a $50 Gift Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store

That's all for today, folks! Thanks so much for joining us and be sure to come back next week for another fabulous installment of... the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge! *Closing Music Plays* 

Have a Happy. *wink*


Heh, heh... See What I Did There?

So, here's the thing. I don't usually do sketch challenges. For some reason I tend to struggle a bit with using a sketch for my inspiration. That being said, every now and then I see one that just catches me and I simply MUST give it a shot! This MFT Sketch Challenge sketch, was so very much one of those.

Isn't it fabulous? I had a few ideas, but decided to pull out a few Simon Says Stamp inks and an MFT stamp set I've had for awhile and haven't used yet for my design. I wanted to use a unique color combination, as I've found myself reaching for the same few colors a lot recently and wanted to shake things up a bit. This combo is different, but I kind of love how it turned out!

Just a Note by Jennifer Ingle #SimonSaysStamp #MFTStamps #Cards

I stamped the equalizer image repeatedly to create the 'stripes' represented by the sketch. I then die cut the super cute headphones and added those along with the sentiment to complete my card. I super love punny sentiments. Heh, heh...see what I did there? (Okay, so I didn't do it, so much, as MFT kindly did that for me by offering awesome punny sentiments in their sets, but... let's just go with it, K? K. Glad we had this talk.)

Just a Note by Jennifer Ingle #SimonSaysStamp #MFTStamps #Cards

The colors are teal, pale blush pink, and thistle. I used black and grey on the headphones to keep them neutral, but also to allow them to pop off the patterned background. I had a ton of fun creating this card! I was quite happy for the sketch challenge and the inspiration it provided!

Have a Happy!


Hello There!

So, here's the deal. Hello is my One  Little Word for the year. You may recall THIS Hello card that I posted just the other day. My word for the year inspired that card AND that giveaway (which ends today, by the way, so be sure to enter if you haven't already!). I used a super awesome Neat & Tangled stamp for that card. And THEN... the latest Little Tangles challenge came out yesterday with what theme? Oh. Yes. Hello.

Wellllllllll.... I simply HAD to create something for it. I mean, FOR REALS. It's my WORD, yo. But, since I had just used Neat and Tangled stamps for that other one I was a bit torn. I decided to use the same stamp again. Because I like it. Nope. Because I LOVE it.

Hello There by Jennifer Ingle #JustJingle #Cards #NeatAndTangled

I did. I used the Neat & Tangled Origami Map stamp and the coordinating die for the background of my card. I then used the super cute On the Corner stamp set. I used Distress inks to ink the background, splashed some water drops on there for texture, and used Distress Markers to color my image. I don't use those for coloring often, but they seemed to be what I was looking for this time around. I actually hand lettered the sentiment to get exactly what I wanted and I was surprised by how much I liked the results!

Hello There by Jennifer Ingle #JustJingle #Cards #NeatAndTangled/center>

So, there it is! Something a little different with a potentially unlikely stamp combination, but I like it! It's fun!

Have a Happy, folks!


Something NEW!

Happy New Year! Our first Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge of the year is SOMETHING NEW! Yup! You can use something new as your theme or use brand new product on your project. The Design Team is featuring WPlus9 products this week. I LOVE WPlus9 so much! They have so many fun stamp set and dies! For my card, I decided to use NEW YOU as my inspiration! Many of our friends have likely made resolutions to better themselves in some way and it is always fun to encourage one another with handmade cards!

You Can Do It by Jennifer Ingle #SimonSaysStamp #Wplus9 #JustJingle #DearLizzy

I used two of my favorite WPlus9 sets for this one, Unforgettable and Encouraging Words . With a little masking, I was able to combine and image and a sentiment that wouldn't necessarily be made to go together. I thought the little elephant looked a bit like he was doing push-ups, so I added some leg warmers and a headband to the image to make him a little work-out elephant! CUTENESS!!!

You Can Do It by Jennifer Ingle #SimonSaysStamp #Wplus9 #JustJingle #DearLizzy

I used some super cute wood grain patterned paper from the Dear Lizzy Documentary 6x6 paper pad. It sort of reminded me of a gym floor and went with my theme, so I ran with it! I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers.

Now it's YOUR turn! Create something awesome inspired by the SOMETHING NEW theme and link it up over on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog for your chance to win a $50 Gift Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store! WHAT?! Yup! Happy New Year to YOU! For reals, though. 

You can find the supplies I used linked throughout my post. Thanks for reading!

Have a Happy!


Hey There!

Hello, friends! Today is day TWO of the Design Team reveals for the Girlfriend Collection coming from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps this week! I have another super fun card to share with you. For today's card, I used the super fun 'Hey You' sentiment along with some seriously awesome dies!

Hey There

I die cut the bottom of the smallest tag three times to create the little gold cardstock border. This tag die is going to be used a lot! I can tell! I then used the tiny circle and the cool starburst, both of which were intended to be cool flower center stuff, independently for a fun, graphic look. I am in LOVE with that starburst shape! I layered my washi tape (for those who follow me on Facebook, this is the ver same tape that died due to puppy curiosity later that day... *sadness*) over some foam tape to give it a little extra dimension. I then stamped the sentiment in apricot.

Hey There (detail)

Be sure to head on over to the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has created! This is such a fun release!

Have a Happy!


Love Ya!

It is CAS-ual Fridays Stamps release time and this is another great one! This week the Girlfriend Collection is going live on Wednesday! I am particularly excited about the background stamp that I am showcasing today! You guys... you need it. For reals, though.

Love Ya by Jennifer Ingle #JustJingle #cards #love #CASualFridaysStamps

I stamped the background image in red ink along the bottom of my panel. I love that this stamp can so easily be used for all or part of your card! I then die cut the 'love ya' sentiment and adhered it to my card. SO easy, but SO cute! For reals. I love this background stamp so much! LOVE IT, I TELL YA!

Love Ya by Jennifer Ingle #JustJingle #cards #love #CASualFridaysStamps

The Design Team members have really done some great things with these new stamps and dies! Head on over to the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog to see more! For reals, though... go!

Have a Happy!
