Happy Saturday, friends! I've rolled out a new series over on my YouTube Channel where I do weekly Lives. I am really loving being able to connect with you all and chat while creating a card or two! I am using the Hibiscus Blooms Stamps and Dies from the new Simon Says Stamp Make Magic Release. Be sure to check out my other Make Magic Release videos HERE and HERE.

CARING THOUGHTS HIBISCUS CARD
- Simon Says Stamp Hibiscus Blooms Stamps and Dies
- Simon Says Stamp Friendship Text Background
- More supplies linked in the supply list at the bottom of this post
A 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" panel of smooth white cardstock was inked with a combination of Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Ink and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink. The background was lightly spritzed with water from a Distress Sprayer and allowed to air dry.
The large flower from the Simon Says Stamp Hibiscus Blooms Stamps and Dies was stamped on Bristol Smooth Cardstock with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The image was watercolored with the following Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush pen:
- Orange: Scarlet Red, Bright Yellow, Yellow
- Green: Light Green, Yellow Green
The image was die cut with the coordinating die and adhered to the background as shown.
The "caring thoughts" sentiment from the stamp set was stamped on smooth white cardstock with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with Antique Gold Embossing Powder. The sentiment was die cut with the coordinating die and adhered to the card with foam adhesive.
The design was finished with a scattering of heart embellishments.

Currently I am doing a Friday morning Live at 9 am CT. I adding a once monthly evening Live (for now!). The first evening Live will be July 26, 2021 at 7 pm CST. Replays will be on my YouTube Channel.
I have a few requests to edit the Lives. Currently I am not going to edit them. This is for a couple of reasons:
1) Lives are new to me and we are going to stick with this format for a bit. I personally love Lives. I haven't watched an edited Live so I reserve the right to reconsider in the future if I think it's something I can fit in my schedule.
2) I don't want to spend the precious hours I have for creating new content, editing a Live. I will be bringing the exact same amount of traditional content and videos to my channel. Lives/replays are in addition to that content.
If you want to join us for some real-time crafty fun each week I would love to "see" you there. Please make sure to SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube Channel and click the notification bell so that YouTube alerts you when I'm going live. I am trying to reach 100,000 subscribers so if you haven't subscribed yet I would SO appreciate it! I am grateful for my community on all the platforms!
Thanks to everyone who joined me today (especially with the tech issues)! I had a blast visiting with everyone. ❤️
