Simon Says Stamp Friendly Frolic - Plantiful Puns

Hi all!  Have you guys seen the latest release from Simon Says Stamp?  They just revealed a whole lot of new products including the stamp set I'm featuring today, Plantiful Puns.

I had all sorts of fun playing with this set and created three cards to share.

For this first card I stamped and colored the terrarium with Copics and then fussy cut it.

For the background I layered three pieces of patterned paper adding a bit of splatter and the sentiment on the top piece, and then adhering the terrarium.

This next card is super clean and simple.  The pot and aloe plant were stamped, colored and fussy cut and then layered over a very simple background created by simple placing a strip of post-it tape to my card and adding a bit of inking.

The sentiment was then stamped directly on the card base, and done!

Finally I used the mint leaf stamp to create a simple background.  I stamped the leaves using Versafine Smokey Gray ink.  Then I watercolored the leaves using two colors of Kuretake Gansai watercolors in a very loose style starting with the lighter color and then going back with the darker after the lighter layer was dry.

I then added a whole lot of splatter using the darker green and brown.

The sentiment was embossed in white on s trip of brown cardstock and then popped up with some foam tape.  I wanted to add a bit of something, so I used my Wink of Stella pen to add a bit of shine to the sentiment strip as well as the leaves.  It's a little hard to see in the photos, but adds just the right bit of shimmer.

That's all for me today.  There are all sorts of lovely things in the release, so head over to Simon to check it out!


  1. Miriam, these are all great cards and although I like all of the sentiments, 'you had me at aloe' is my fave. Too funny!
