Simon Says Stamp Lined Rainbow

Hello Crafty Friends and happy Friday! I’m participating in an awesome Instagram Hop today to celebrate Simon’s latest release, Happy and Joyful! Be sure to stop over there and comment along the hop for your chance to win a $25 gift card to Simon Says Stamp! Today’s project is featuring the new Lined Background stamp, so let’s run through the details!

I began this project by stamping the Lined Background stamp onto a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using SSS Pawsitively Saturated Inks in Peony, Sunbeam and Surf. I applied the first ink to the stamp and softened the edges of the ink using a blender brush, and stamped it on the panel. I cleaned the stamp and moved on to the next color, softening those edges as well. By using just those three colors and allowing them to blend through the stamping, it rounded out the rainbow effect.

Once the rainbow panel was complete, I trimmed it out using the PinkFresh Studio Diagonal Stitched Rectangle. I also used the smaller set of the rectangles to create this black frame. I stamped the sentiment, which is from the SSS Spring In My Step set, onto black cardstock using VersaMark Ink and heat set that using SSS Detail White Embossing Powder. I then used the coordinating die to cut it out. I used the die to cut two more blank sentiments and adhered all of those together using liquid glue.

To assemble the card, I glued the black frame to the rainbow panel and adhered the sentiment in the bottom corner using foam tape. The panel was then adhered to a black panel using foam tape again. Yes, lots of dimension!

Everything was then adhered to the card base using SSS Dot Tape Runner. And of course, I had to add some black jewels to finish up this one.

That finishes it up! I hope you enjoyed it and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! There’s lots of inspiration over on the Instagram Hop, so be sure to check that out and comment along the hop for your chance to win a Simon gift card! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!

Simon Says Stamp Floral Thank You

Hello Friends and thanks so much for stopping by! I’m still playing with goodies from Simon’s latest release, Happy and Joyful. There are so many beautiful florals in this release, and today’s card is featuring the new Lisianthus stamp set. Let’s run through the details for this card!

I began by stamping the floral image on a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using VersaMark Ink and then heat set it using SSS Detail White Embossing Powder.

I was going for an emboss resist technique so I used PinkFresh Studio inks in Soft Lilac and Lavender, as well as Simon’s Aspen Pawsitively Saturated Ink for the ink blending on this panel. When the ink blending was complete, I used the new SSS A2 Marquee die set to trim it down. I cut the marquee an additional two times and adhered all of those together using liquid glue for added dimension without the bulk. This is such a cool die, and I just love the detail that it adds! I also added some white splatter to the panel using Royal Talens Titanium White Acrylic Ink before moving on.

For the sentiment, I used the SSS Clean Line Gratitude stamp and die set. I stamped thanks using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat set that using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. I trimmed it out using the coordinating die and placed foam tape on the back. I searched my SSS Sentiment Strips to find a sub-sentiment that worked well and added foam tape to that as well.

The sentiments were added to the panel along with some pearl accents before being added to the card base using SSS Dot Tape Runner.

Super simple card, but I love the soft airy feeling to it. I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Don’t forget to check out the entire Happy and Joyful release, and let me know your favorites! Have a wonderful stay and stay awesome!

Simon Says Stamp Take Care Lisianthus

Hello Crafty Friends! Thanks so much for stopping by! Today’s card is featuring the new Lisianthus stamp from Simon’s newest release, Happy and Joyful. This is such a gorgeous release, but I say that about all of their releases! So, let’s run through the details of this project!

I began by stamping the floral image from the Lisianthus set on a panel of cold press watercolor paper using VersaMark Ink and heat embossing it using SSS Detail White Embossing Powder. Once that was done, I began to watercolor the image in a very loose manner.

The mediums used were Distress Ink ReInkers in Kitsch Flamingo and Mustard Seed. I also used Concord and 9th’s Oceanside liquid watercolor. When the painting was done, I used the PFS Diagonal Stitched Rectangles to trim it out.

For the sentiment, I chose to use the SSS Take Care. I die cut the sentiment three times from black cardstock and adhered all of those together using liquid glue, and then glued it directly to the watercolored panel.

The panel was then adhered to black cardstock using foam tape. I opted to use foam tape to keep the panel from warping once it was on the card front. The panel was adhered to the card base using SSS Dot Tape Runner. To finish up, I added a few PFS Jewels to give it a little bling.

That does it for this project! Super simple, but I love the look of loose watercolors. I hope you enjoyed it and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
