Simon Says Stamp Leafy Little Note

Hello Craft Friends and thanks so much for stopping by today!  The newest Simon Says Stamp release, Hello Gorgeous is live, and it’s a gorgeous one!  I’m featuring the new Tattered Leaves die for today’s project, so let’s go through the details, shall we?

To begin this project, I did some ink blending on some panels of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using SSS Pawsitively Saturated Inks in Carnation, Cantalope, Lemonade, Sprout, Seafoam and Marine.  Once I was done ink blending, I ran those through using the SSS Tattered Leaves die.  I set those aside while I worked on the remainder of the card.

For my background panel, I decided to use the SSS Geometric Lattice Embossing Folder.  I thought that would give some interest and texture without distracting from the focal point of the card. I chose the “a little note” sentiment, which is from the SSS Just Because Word Mix 2 set.  I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Onyx Black ink on a scrap of Neenah 110lb, and heat embossed it using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder.  I went ahead and used the coordinating die to trim that out.  For some added interest, I added a pink heart to the sentiment, which is from a Doodlebug Design sticker set.

To assemble the card, I held the sentiment atop the embossed panel while placing the leaves in rainbow order around it, tucking the ends underneath.  I secured the leaves using liquid glue, and adhered the sentiment using foam tape.  I did trim the leaves down some so that there wasn’t so much bulk underneath the sentiment.  Once everything was secured, I added in some of the trimmed off leaves to fill in.

I adhered the embossed panel to a black panel using a SSS Dot Tape Runner and then adhered that to my card base.  No card is complete without some bling, so I added some Studio Katia Majestic Confetti here and there!

That does it for this project!  I hope you enjoyed it and I hope it inspires you to get crafty!  Be sure to check out the entire Hello Gorgeous release, and let me know your favorites!  Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
