Hello Friends and welcome back! Thanks so much for stopping by! I’m back today with a card featuring the new Elegant Modern Greetings from Simon Says Stamp’s latest release, Dear Friend. I always love getting to see all the awesome things in new releases, along with all of the amazing inspirations from the rest of the team. Let’s run through the details of this card.
To begin, I got to work on the background and pulled out some Dina Wakely Gloss Sprays in Magenta, Lemon and Turquoise. I played around with that until I was satisfied with the look and colors, letting it dry between applications because I didn’t want it to get muddy looking.
That does it for this project! I hope you enjoyed it! Don’t forget to click over and check out the entire Dear Friend release, and let me know your favorites! I hope you have a wonderful day, and stay awesome friend!
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!
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!
Hello Crafty Friends, and welcome back to my blog! Today’s card is featuring the new Painted Rainbow background stamp from Simon Says Stamp’s latest release, Dear Friend. This is such a fun release and I had lots of fun playing with different color combos using this stamp. Let’s get to the details!
This is a pull apart stamp, so you can stamp the arches of the rainbow as close or as far apart as you’d like them. I did do a card that has the spacing as the stamp is put together, and you’ll see that another day. Anyhoo, I began by placing a panel of Neenah 110lb cardstock in the Misti and stamping the arches in the selected colors of SSS Pawsitively Saturated Ink, which are Seafoam, Surf, Violet, Amethyst and Lilac.
I’m running short on birthday cards, so I opted to use the SSS Basic Box Card Happy Birthday die and cut it three times, adhering all of those together for added dimension. I began the placement and assembly of the card by gluing the leaves under the flowers and gluing the larger daisy directly to the panel. The other two flowers were adhered using SSS 3D Foam Squares.
I nestled the sentiment in the middle using glue and added some PFS Iridescent Clear Drops for that little bit of bling and shine. Everything was then adhered to the card base, which is Neenah 110lb cardstock.
That does it for this project! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Thanks so much for joining me, and my apologies for the extended break. Don’t forget to check out the entire Dear Friend release and let me know your favorites! Have a wonderful day and stay awesome!
