Simon Says Stamp Be You Simple Stem

Hey there! How’s it going today? I’m super excited about the new SSS Make Magic release! Have you checked it out? There are so many awesome things! I know, I know, I say that about every release, but it’s true! There’s an amazing new sentiment set called All About You, and today’s card is featuring a sentiment from that set along with an older leaf favorite of mine!

I started this project by trimming a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using the PinkFresh Studio Diagonal Stitched Rectangles. I then adhered the SSS Fading Tiny Dots Stencil using masking tape and ran some Iridescent Gina K Glitz Glitter Gel through it. I set that aside to dry while I did some die cutting.

I pulled out five colors from my pack of The Stamp Market cardstock, and die cut the SSS Simple Stem from those, and then adhered them together using liquid glue, but slightly off center for each color. I tied some black and white twine around the stem for some added interest.

I took the gelled panel and popped it in the Misti and stamped my sentiment the first time using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat setting it using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. I then stamped it again using VersaMark ink and heat embossed it for a second time. And .. I repeated that once more, for a total of three heat embossings. It gives it a really nice, smooth, glossy finish. You might be wondering why I don’t just stamp it all three times using the black ink .. without fail, my paper warps while heating and then it never lines up exactly the second time, so by stamping it with the clear ink, it doesn’t really show. Might be a silly way to do things, but it works for me!

I adhered my leaf bundle to the panel using glue and adhered that panel to a black panel using foam tape for dimension. This was then adhered to my card base, which is also Neenah 110lb, using the SSS Dot Runner. For the last detail, I added a black glossy heart sticker from my stash.

That finishes up this project! Super simple, but I love the impact of the rainbow leaves, and I always LOVE large sentiment sets like this one! I hope it inspires you to get crafty in your space! Head over to SSS to check out the entire Make Magic release. You don’t want to miss it! Thanks for stopping by today and don’t forget to stay awesome!
