VIDEO: One Stamp Three Ways: Simon Says Stamp Make Magic Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome everyone! I’m so excited to be a part of the Simon Says Stamp Make Magic Blog Hop! Today is Day 2 of inspiration so if you are looking for more inspiration, be sure to check out Day 1 of the hop as well!

Today I’m creating three cards with one background. Everyone wants to get the most out of their purchases so I hope this gives you some inspiration.


I have a video that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

I provide full instructions in my video so below I will list the main supplies used. Please refer to the video HERE for more details.




Here is a bonus card I created for release night with a similar concept to those shared above.

I have another card to share using one of the new stamp sets from the release. This was not included in the video but I still wanted to share it here.

This card features the Cup of Love stamp set.

I stamped the image in copic friendly ink and colored the saucer, cup and spoon with copic markers. I didn’t have the coordinating dies so I just fussy cut them for I could pop them up later with foam squares.

For the inside of the cup, I stamped the image in Pizza Crust ink from Lawn Fawn. Then went around the edges of the image with Crunchy Leaf and stamped it again. That way the edges of my coffee were darker then the middle.

How do you take your coffee? Mine is a little coffee with a lot of creamer lol.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration! I have an exclusive gift for you!
