Happy StampTember! Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you’re having a wonderful day! Have you checked out the entire StampTember release yet? What are your favorites? I’m looking forward to seeing all of the collaboration sets for the month! Today’s card is featuring the new Raindrops stamp set, but used in a different way! Let’s jump right in!
I used the SSS Stitched Daisies die set to cut a few centers from black cardstock, and then adhered the petals to the back using liquid glue, in rainbow order. For the sentiment, I opted to use one from the SSS XL Greetings 2 set. I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat set it using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. I then repeated the stamping and embossing two more times, but using VersaMark ink on those. I do it this way because my paper always warps slightly during the embossing process, and by stamping in VersaMark, you don’t see any mistakes if it doesn’t line up perfectly correct the second and third time because of the warping.
I used the SSS XL Greetings 2 coordinating die to trim out the sentiment, and cut it a second time for stacking purposes. I trimmed the Tiny Dots panel using Taylored Expressions Stitched Rectangle die and adhered the sentiment in the center using foam tape. I then placed foam tape on the back of the flowers and adhered those around the sentiment, trimming off any excess. The panel was then adhered to a black panel using foam tape, and then to the card base, which is Neenah 110lb.
That finishes up this project! I hope you enjoyed it! I quite like using these “raindrops” as flowers! Stop by and check out the entire StampTember release and let me know your favorites! Have a great day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
Hello Crafty Friend, and happy StampTember! StampTember is always so exciting! So many new products, and so many awesome collaboration sets! To celebrate, we are having a huge blog party! There will be tons of inspiration AND a scavenger hunt for exclusive codes to the Simon Says Stamp store! You can check out the SSS Blog for more inspiration, more details and more links to blogs with even more exclusive codes! You’ll find my exclusive code below! Today’s card is featuring this new, awesome, Fine Petal Background Plate. Such a cool plate to play with! So, let’s get right into the details of it.
Once the panel was cut, I zhooshed most of the petals to give them some good dimension! I left some petals near the bottom un-zhooshed, is that even a word? Anyhoo, I left some flat so that I had a place for the sentiment. I then adhered the ink blended panel to a black cardstock panel using liquid glue. I thought the black background made a bold impact against the rainbow!
Next, I used the SSS Hello die and cut that from black glossy cardstock three times and adhered all of those together using glue. I also cut the shadow once from vellum and glued that behind the sentiment. This was then glued to the panel near the bottom.
This panel was then glued to the card base, which is Neenah 110lb. This was a super simple and quick card, but I love how it turned out! I really love the black elements combined with the rainbow colors!
That does it for this one! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope you’ll stop by and check out the entire StampTember line up! There’s so many great things in this release! Here’s my exclusive code for the SSS store! Join the scavenger hunt for more codes! Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome sweet friend!
Hello Crafty Friend, and happy StampTember! This is my second StampTember, and it’s always so exciting to see all the new products and all the new collaboration sets! Have you taken a look at the release yet?! There’s 150 Simon brand products released today, can you believe that?? Today’s card is featuring the new Leaves Wreath Stencil with some ink blending, so let’s get right into it!
For the sentiment, I chose the SSS Kindness Matters die and I cut that twice from black cardstock and once from Gold Mirror cardstock. I made sure the letters stayed in one of the black die cuts, and popped them out of the second black die cut. This is because, I’m going to inlay the gold letters atop the black ones. I put foam tape on the back of the black die cut to ensure that the letters stayed in place and then adhered the second black die cut to it using glue. I then inlaid the gold letters using glue as well.
I adhered the sentiment to the center of the ink blended leaves using the foam tape that I had already put on the back. I then used PinkFresh Studios Gold Metallic Pearls to adhere to the dots that the stencil creates. I then adhered the panel to a black panel using foam tape, because I always love to use black on my cards. It just gives a lovely contrast in my opinion. Everything was then adhered to the card base, which is also Neenah 110lb.
That finishes this project! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Let me know your favorites from the new StampTember release in the comments! Stay tuned for tomorrow’s blog party! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
