Hello Friends, and thank you so much for stopping by. Are you getting lots of inspiration from Simon Says Stamp’s latest release, Dear Friend? What are your favorites from this release? I’ve really enjoyed playing with the Painted Rainbow background stamp, and today’s post features another project using that stamp. So, let’s run through the details!
To begin, I popped a panel of Neenah 110lb cardstock in the Misti and stamped the different pieces of stamp using SSS Pawsitively Saturated Inks in an assortment of Bubblegum, Cheeky, Melon, Lemonade, Seafoam and Lilac. I stamped one portion of the stamp, cleaned it, and moved on to the next portion with the next color. Once the background was completed, I trimmed it down using the PFS Diagonal Stitched Rectangles.
I stamped the birthday sentiment from the SSS Clean Line Stacks set onto black cardstock using VersaMark ink and heat set that using SSS Detail White Embossing Powder. I used the coordinating die to trim out the sentiment, cutting it an additional two more times and adhering all of those together using liquid glue.
The sentiment was then adhered in the center of the panel, and I added some coordinating PinkFresh Studio Jewels along the arches of the rainbow for added interest and bling. Because, every card needs just a little bit of bling! Well, I guess this is a lot of bling!
The panel was then adhered to the card base using foam tape for some extra dimension, because dimension is life!
That does it for this project! Super simple, but I love the way it turned out! The jewels coordinate so well with the Simon ink colors! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Don’t forget to check out the entire Dear Friend release over on Simon’s website. Have a wonderful day and stay awesome!
