Hello Lovelies and thanks for joining me today! The newest Simon Says Stamp release, Hello Gorgeous, is gorgeous and I’ve loved playing with my goodies! Today’s project is featuring the Daisies and Leaves stencil in a combination of blue and yellow because I had the people from the Ukraine on my mind as I was making it. Let’s get into the details.
To begin this card, I secured the SSS Daisies and Leaves stencil to a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using Pixie Spray. Normally, I just use masking tape, but because this stencil is so intricate, I thought it best to use the spray for this go around. I used SSS Pawsitively Inks in Aspen, Sunbeam, Marine and Cadette for the ink blending. When that was done, I used the PinkFresh Studio Blanket Stitched Rectangle to trim it out.
For the sentiment, I chose the SSS Missing You So Much and die cut that three times from Neenah 110lb cardstock. I ink blended one of the die cuts using the Cadette ink, and ink blended another using the Marine ink. I adhered the darker sentiment to the plain white sentiment using liquid glue, and adhered the lighter sentiment atop the darker one, offset just a tad. I also die cut the shadow once from the same Neenah 110lb cardstock and adhered the stacked sentiment to that using glue as well.
I felt like the card needed some leaves. I’ve noticed that I often feel that way, and find myself reaching for leaf dies of all varieties! Anyhoo, I used the SSS Detailed Leaf Cluster and cut that from Neenah 110lb and used the Aspen ink to do a light ink blending over those.
To assemble the card, I tucked the leaves behind the sentiment and glued those in place, and adhered the sentiment using foam tape for a little dimension. Everything was then adhered to the card base, after adding a little bling! Every card needs bling in my opinion! And it seems as though every card might need a leaf too!
That finishes up this project! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! What are your favorites from the new Simon Says Stamp release, Hello Gorgeous? I’d love to know in the comments! I ended up purchasing one of the sentiment sets, a sentiment die, and guess what, another leaf die! Anyhoo, have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
