Simon Says Stamp Love You Leaf Bundle

Hello friends and welcome back! Thanks for stopping by! I’m loving the new Rainbows release from Simon Says Stamp! Today’s project is featuring the Leaf Bundle Embossing Folder. Embossing folders are such an under used product, in my opinion, so I’m glad to see so many companies releasing awesome folders lately. Let’s get into today’s project.

I began my project by cutting a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and placing it inside the folder to run through my die cutting machine. I then used PinkFresh Studio Mint and Ocean Breeze inks to do some ink blending over the embossed panel. I used a corner rounder on the panel for something a little different and to add interest.

I cut the SSS Love You shadow portion of the die three times from Neenah 110lb and cut the sentiment once from gold cardstock and adhered all of those together using Craft Tacky Glue. This was then glued directly atop the embossed panel. I wrapped some twine around the panel for added interest, and also attached a piece of Tim Holtz Idea-ology in the center of the “O.”

I adhered 3M Foam Tape on the back of the panel around the twine, and attached that to my card base, which is Neenah 110lb.

That finishes this project. I appreciate you stopping by today! How often do you use embossing folders? What are your favorite ones? I would love to know in the comments. Don’t forget to check out the entire Rainbows release for some awesome new products!

Alex Syberia Design Love You Daffodils

Hello there Crafty Friends! I hope you’re doing well, and I thank you for stopping by today! I’m featuring the new Alex Syberia Design Daffodils A2 Card Panel for this post. Alex has a new release, and you should definitely check out her Etsy shop for all the digi stamps and loads of inspirations!

To begin my project, I printed the Daffodils on a sheet of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and began coloring the image using Copic Markers Y06, Y08, Y11, Y13, Y15, YR27, YG13, YG17, YG91, E71 and B0000. I continued to add shading and more details, such as the leaf veining using my PrismaColor pencils.

I didn’t want to lose too much of the image, so I trimmed my panel down to 3.75″ x 5.75″ and mounted it onto a panel of black cardstock that’s just slightly larger using 3M Foam Tape. I die cut the Lawn Fawn I Love You Border sentiment once from gold cardstock and twice from the same black cardstock and adhered those together using Craft Tacky Glue. This sentiment actually says I Love You, but I trimmed it down, because I only wanted the love you portion.

I die cut the Altenew Hanging Garden die twice from gold cardstock and prepared my card base by splattering it with Royal Talens Amsterdam Oxide Black Acrylic Ink. I love this ink because it’s such a perfect consistency for splatter! I positioned my panel over the card base to determine the placement of the gold leaves, and adhered those using glue. I then glued my panel atop the leaves to finish up my card.

This was a super fun card panel to color! Don’t forget to stop by Alex’s Etsy shop to check out all of the new images!

Stay awesome friends!

Love You Chunky Hearts

Hello crafty friends! How are your Valentine’s Day cards coming along? I have a few that I would like to send out, and really need to get myself in gear!

For today’s post, I’m using the Simon Says Stamp Chunky Hearts Panel die.

To begin my project, I spent some time die cutting the panel fifteen times from fifteen different colors of cardstock. These cardstocks included some from my stash, as well as some from Concord and 9th and The Stamp Market.

For my card panel, I die cut the Chunky Hearts die from Neenah Solar White 110lb cardstock, and also used the Postal Frames die set from The Greetery. I then ink blended my card panel using Distress Oxide Spun Sugar. After that, I adhered my card panel to the base using foam tape for dimension.

I added a small piece of foam tape on the back of each colored heart and inlaid them into my card panel. I die cut the Love You shadow sentiment three times from white cardstock and the Love You sentiment once from gold cardstock and adhered all of those together and glued it to my card panel.

That’s it for today’s card. I hope you enjoyed this project and that it inspires you to get busy on your Valentine’s Day cards!
