Simon Says Stamp “This is the Life” Release

Today, I’m sharing two cards created with dies from the brand-new¬†Simon Says Stamp “This is the Life” releaseFrozen Treats and Ice Cream Cone Parade. Do you see a summer treat theme here? ūüôā

FrozenTreatsFor my first card, I used the Frozen Treats die to cut a variety of cardstock colors. I then fussy cut the Popsicles along embossed lines and layered the pieces onto kraft cardstock bases. The turquoise card panel was embossed with the Tim Holtz Wave embossing folder. The sentiment is from the Simon Says Stripe Greetings stamp set.

On the second card, I used the inlay technique with the Ice Cream Cone Parade die.
IceCreamConeParadeI cut a variety of cardstock colors from the Simon Says Spring Rainbow Pack with the Ice Cream Cone Parade die. I also cut the white card panel, onto which I stamped my sentiment from the Simon Says Stripe Greetings stamp set, with the die. I then began adhering the pieces into the panel. To finish off the card, I added a thin chocolate brown mat.

There are lots of great summer-themed stamps, stencils and dies in the new¬†Simon Says Stamp¬†“This is the Life” release! I’m off to do some shopping. There’s also a hop going on at the Simon Says Stamp Blog.

  1. These are both great! I am a popsicle girl myself, so I probably like the first one best, plus I love the embossing.

  2. Love these cards – so fresh and fun! The embossed background and bright Popsicles is definitely summer by the pool ūüôā

  3. Both cards are fabulous, Jean! I love the bold pops of color on both, and how you used the wave pattern on your background! I also love that you added a thin ‘chocolate’ mat around your focal panel on the 2nd card…so appropriate with ice cream ūüôā
