Simon Says Stamp Just Because Flowers and Instagram Hop

Hello Friends, and thanks for stopping by! I hope you’re having a wonderful day! There is a super fun Instagram hop going on today to celebrate the new release, Hello Gorgeous! There’s also lots of gift cards to be won! So be sure to stop over there for your chance to win! For today’s project, I’m once again featuring the new Folk Art Flowers background stamp. Let’s run through the details!

To begin, I pulled out all of the flowers and stamped just the leaves on a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using SSS Pawsitively Saturated ink in Sage. I then popped all of the flowers back in the stamp and carefully removed the leaf portion from the Misti. I then stamped some of the flowers using SSS Peony ink, cleaned the stamp, and re-inked with some SSS Sherbet ink. I did use a blender brush to soften the hard ink edges.

Once the stamping was done, I did so some light ink blending over the entire panel using SSS Aspen ink. I used the PinkFresh Studio Diagonal Stitched Rectangles to trim the panel. I added some dots to the flowers using a gold metallic pen for some added interest. I decided the panel still needed something, so I spritzed it with some water, and splattered it using Royal Talens Amsterdam Light Gold Acrylic Ink.

While that dried, I die cut the SSS Just Because sentiment once from polished gold cardstock, and twice from Neenah 110lb, adhering all of those together using liquid glue. I also die cut the shadow once from black cardstock as well. I glued the sentiment to the panel and added some PinkFresh Gold Metallic Pearls, because we all need bling!

The panel was then adhered to a black panel using SSS Dot Tape Runner and that was then adhered to the card base using foam tape for added dimension.

That does it for today’s project! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Stop by and check out the Instagram hop, and comment along the hop for your chance to win one of several $25 gift cards!
