Hello Friends and thanks for joining me! The Handmade Holiday release from Simon Says Stamp is live and there are so many cool things that you absolutely need to check out! Like the new Simon Glitz Glitter Gels! Yup, you heard that right, Glitz Glitter Gels! I was super excited to find these in my package and couldn’t wait to play with them! Let’s get right to my project for today!
This set comes with six containers of gels, and they are all so gorgeous, but I’m only using four of them today. To begin, I trimmed a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using the PinkFresh Studio Diagonal Stitched Rectangles. I decided on the SSS Tumbling Leaves Stencil, so I taped that to my panel using masking tape, and began applying the gel. The colors that I ended up using were Pearfection, Surf, Citrine and Sherbert. I was going for an ombre look, so I applied the first gel over the top portion of the stencil, cleaning as much as possible from the top of the stencil. I moved to the next color of gel, overlapping the previous color just slightly, continuing with the four colors to the bottom of the stencil.
For the sentiment, I chose to use the SSS Be die along with the SSS Grateful die. I cut each of the words once from mirror gold cardstock and twice from black cardstock. I die cut the shadow for grateful once from black cardstock as well. The Be die cut does not have a shadow, so I traced the die cut on black cardstock and fussy cut that one. By tracing the die, it gives you the perfect size shadow when there isn’t one available. Once all of those were cut, I adhered them all together using liquid glue.
Once the panel was dry, I adhered it to a black cardstock panel using foam tape for dimension. I then glued the sentiments directly to the glitter panel, and adhered everything to the card base, which is Neenah 110lb. To finish up, I added a few PinkFresh Studio Gold Metallic Pearls for some added bling!
Super simple project, but I love the gels and love how this card came out! I hope you’ll stop by and check out the entire Handmade Holiday release! If you love embossing folders, this release is for you! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
