Hello Crafty Friends and thanks for stopping by! Today I’m participating in an Instagram Hop to celebrate Simon Says Stamp’s latest release, Good Luck Charm! Be sure to check it out because there are prizes to be won at each stop along the hop! Who doesn’t love prizes, right?! Today’s project is featuring the new Dreamy Daisy Layers and the Here For You dies. So let’s go through the deets!
I began this project by selecting a piece of patterned paper from the Craft Consortium Ink Drops Dusk paper pad and trimming it down using PinkFresh Studio’s Diagonal Stitched Rectangles. There are some gorgeous papers in this pad, and I can totally see just putting a beautiful sentiment on them and calling it done! Once trimmed, I splattered it using Royal Talens Amsterdam Light Gold Acrylic Ink.
My next step was to cut some SSS Dreamy Daisy Layers from Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock. I cut one larger flower and three of the smaller flowers. Before adhering those together with liquid glue, I did the slightest amount of ink blending on the bottom layer using residual ink left on my pink blending brush. For that added bling, I added some PinkFresh Studio Gold Metallic Pearls to the centers of the flowers. I knew that I wanted a gold sentiment, so I cut some gold leaves using SSS Etched Meadow Flowers and Leaves.
I used the new SSS Here for You die to cut the sentiment from polished gold cardstock once, and I cut it an additional two times from Neenah 110lb and adhered all of those together using liquid glue. I laid everything atop my panel to determine placement, and decided that the gold leaves were a little too much. They took away from the sentiment in my opinion. So, to remedy this, I cut the same leaves from vellum and glued those together. I still had the gold leaves that I wanted, but the vellum just toned them down a bit!
I then began adhering everything to the panel using glue and placed foam tape on the larger flower, and one of the smaller flowers for added dimension. My panel was then adhered to the card base using SSS Dot Tape Runner.
And that finishes up this project! I love using beautiful patterned papers for cards, along with other elements in my stash! Don’t forget to stop by Instagram to participate in the hop for your chance to win one of several $25 gift cards to SSS! I hope you have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome friend!
