Simon Says Stamp Hello Horizon

Hello Friends and welcome back! I’m glad you stopped by to check out today’s project featuring the new On the Horizon set from Simon’s latest release, Dream Big. I’ve had a lot of fun with this release making my own backgrounds and ink blending, and today’s project was another fun one! Let’s get into the details!

To begin this project, I trimmed a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and did some ink blending on it using Distress Oxide inks in Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade and Seedless Preserves. These colors really yielded a nice desert sunset scene in my opinion. Anyhoo, once the ink blending was complete, I used the PFS Diagonal Stitched Rectangles to trim it down, and spritzed it to get some water drop marks for added interest.

Once that was dry, I stamped some of the desert elements from the SSS On the Horizon set using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat set it using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. I repeated that process twice to get a smoother finish on the embossing.

I used the hello sentiment, which is from the SSS Handlettered Greetings set, and die cut that twice from black cardstock and adhered them together using liquid glue. It was then glued directly to the panel, trimming off any excess.

Before adhering the panel to the card base using SSS Dot Tape Runner, I did give it a light splatter using Royal Talens Oxide Black Acrylic Ink.

And that does it for this one! I liked this particular sentiment with this card, because it kind of reminded me of a rope that a cowboy might use in the desert. Maybe that’s a weird thought, I don’t know. I can’t explain how my brain works most of the time! Thanks again for stopping by and don’t forget to swing by the website and check out the entire Dream Big release! Have yourself a fabulous day and as always, stay awesome!

Simon Says Stamp Sorry for Your Loss

Hello Friends! I’m so glad that you stopped by today! Have you checked out Simon’s latest release, Dream Big? It’s beautiful with so many things to offer! Today’s project is featuring a new embossing folder with die, entitled Terrace Floral. Let’s get into the details!

To begin, I trimmed two panels of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and placed each one inside the SSS Terrace Floral embossing folder and ran it through the Spellbinders Platinum 6, giving me a total of two panels to work with. I trimmed one of the panels down that would end up being on the card front.

For the other panel, I used the included die to trim the one floral element out, and I fussy cut a few more of the flowers. Once all of the cutting was done, I adhered the flowers to the panel using SSS 3D Foam Squares, trimming off the excess.

The floral panel was then adhered to a black panel for contrast. I adhered a SSS Sentiment Strip directly to the flowers using liquid glue, along with some white pearls. Everything was then adhered to the card base to finish up.

Super simple card, but I like how it turned out! I always like using mainly white on sympathy cards, I guess because it’s soothing. I hope you enjoyed this project and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Don’t forget to stop by and check out the entire Dream Big release! Have a wonderful day and stay awesome!
