Hello Crafty Friends and thanks for stopping by! Today I’m participating in an Instagram Hop to celebrate Simon Says Stamp’s latest release, Good Luck Charm! Be sure to check it out because there are prizes to be won at each stop along the hop! Who doesn’t love prizes, right?! Today’s project is featuring the new Dreamy Daisy Layers and the Here For You dies. So let’s go through the deets!
I used the new SSS Here for You die to cut the sentiment from polished gold cardstock once, and I cut it an additional two times from Neenah 110lb and adhered all of those together using liquid glue. I laid everything atop my panel to determine placement, and decided that the gold leaves were a little too much. They took away from the sentiment in my opinion. So, to remedy this, I cut the same leaves from vellum and glued those together. I still had the gold leaves that I wanted, but the vellum just toned them down a bit!
I then began adhering everything to the panel using glue and placed foam tape on the larger flower, and one of the smaller flowers for added dimension. My panel was then adhered to the card base using SSS Dot Tape Runner.
And that finishes up this project! I love using beautiful patterned papers for cards, along with other elements in my stash! Don’t forget to stop by Instagram to participate in the hop for your chance to win one of several $25 gift cards to SSS! I hope you have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome friend!
The card needed something behind the sentiment in my opinion, so I opted for some leaves from the SSS Etched Meadow Flowers and Leaves. I cut those from some Neenah 110lb, as well as, some black cardstock and tucked those underneath the sentiment. The sentiment was adhered to the panel with foam tape for some added dimension.
Hello Crafty Lovelies! I hope you’re having a great day! Thanks for stopping by to check out my project today featuring the new Radiating Squares Stencil set from Simon Says Stamp’s newest release, Good Luck Charm. Let’s go through the details.
To be honest, I messed up this panel, hence having to trim it down so small. But, mistakes happen, and you just have to roll with them! I wanted to add some glitz, so I adhered one of the stencils and used some Iridescent Gina K Glitz Glitter Gel. Once that was dry, I used a frame from the Honey Bee Scallop A2 Frames set to trim it down. I got a little ink out of place on the bottom corner, so I opted for the smaller size. I used another frame from the same set to cut a larger panel and adhered those together using SSS Dot Tape Runner.
I die cut the SSS Swoopy Thank You once from gold mirror cardstock and once from black cardstock, adhering those together with liquid glue. I also die cut the shadow twice from black cardstock and adhered those together as well. Once the sentiment was assembled, I placed foam tape on the back of that and placed it towards the bottom of the panel.
That finishes up this project! I hope you enjoyed it and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! I was worried that I was going to have to trash this panel because of my mistake, but I worked through it and ended up with a cool card! Don’t forget to check out the entire Good Luck Charm release! There’s so many fun things in this release. Have a wonderful day and stay awesome!
Hello Crafty Friends! Thanks so much for stopping by for today’s project featuring the Radiating Squares Stencil set from Simon Says Stamp’s newest release, Good Luck Charm! Have you checked out the release yet? I love sentiment sets, so I was thrilled to see a few of those in this release! Let’s get to the details!
I began this project by adhering the first stencil to a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using masking tape. There are a total of four stencils in this set, so I pulled out four inks for the ink blending. I ended up using Distress Oxide inks in Picked Raspberry and Kitsch Flamingo, as well as, PinkFresh Studio inks in Candy Violet and Lavender. For the ink blending, I used a heavier hand at the top and a lighter hand near the bottom creating that ombre look. I used a different ink for each stencil layer and just made my way through the stencils.
I wanted to add a sub-sentiment, so I found a SSS Sentiment Strip that I thought would work. I adhered the main sentiment to the panel using glue and adhered the sub-sentiments using foam tape for dimension.
That wraps up this project! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Don’t forget to check out the entire Good Luck Charm release, there’s so many fun things! Have a wonderful day and stay awesome!

This release is so much fun, and I’ve loved playing with the goodies that I received! Let’s go through the details for today’s project!
I adhered one flower set directly atop the pincushion background using glue, while adhering the other with foam tape for dimension. I also placed foam tape on the sentiment and adhered that as well. Everything was then adhered to the card base using SSS Dot Tape Runner, and I added some pearls to finish it up!

Hello Crafty Friends and welcome to another Simon Says Stamp release! Good Luck Charm is live and ready for your viewing pleasure! My project today is featuring the new Basic Box Card Happy Birthday. Let’s run through the details, shall we?
I’ve really enjoyed making backgrounds with sentiments lately, so I decided to hop on that bandwagon again for this one! It’s such a great way to stretch those sentiment dies, or even just stand alone dies! Anyhoo, I began this project by ink blending a large panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using SSS Pawsitively Saturated Inks in Sweets, Blush, Sunshine and Surf. Once that was done, I die cut enough sentiments to cover an A2 card panel. I also cut them a second time for stacking purposes, and adhered them together using liquid glue.
Because the background was so colorful, I decided to downplay the floral elements by cutting the SSS Etched Crocus Stems from Neenah 110lb cardstock and leaving those white. I adhered the background panel to a black panel using SSS Dot Tape Runner and I adhered the flowers using glue. I found a coordinating SSS Sentiment Strip and adhered that over the stems using foam tape for dimension.
Everything was then adhered to the card base, and I added some PFS Jewels to finish it up with some bling.
I hope you enjoyed this project! Take a look at your dies and see what kind of background that you can make, and stretch those supplies! Stop by and check out the entire Good Luck Charm release and let me know your favorites! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
