Simon Says Stamp Dreamy Daisy Birthday

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.

Once I had stamped enough to cover a panel, I trimmed it down using the PFS Diagonal Stitched Rectangles. I then cut several flowers using the SSS Dreamy Daisy Layers and did some light ink blending on them using the Seafoam ink. I also cut some leaves using the SSS Winsome Branch. I adhered the flowers together using Bearly Art Glue and set everything aside while I worked on the sentiment.

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!

Simon Says Stamp Rainbow Hello

Hello Crafty Friend, and happy StampTember! StampTember is always so exciting! So many new products, and so many awesome collaboration sets! To celebrate, we are having a huge blog party! There will be tons of inspiration AND a scavenger hunt for exclusive codes to the Simon Says Stamp store!

Today’s card is featuring this new, awesome, Fine Petal Background Plate. Such a cool plate to play with! So, let’s get right into the details of it.

I began by ink blending a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using Distress Oxide inks in Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron and Broken China. I then used the SSS Fine Petal Background Plate to cut the ink blended panel using the Gemini Jr. I did have to run it through about four times to get a really good cut.

Once the panel was cut, I zhooshed most of the petals to give them some good dimension! I left some petals near the bottom un-zhooshed, is that even a word? Anyhoo, I left some flat so that I had a place for the sentiment. I then adhered the ink blended panel to a black cardstock panel using liquid glue. I thought the black background made a bold impact against the rainbow!

Next, I used the SSS Hello die and cut that from black glossy cardstock three times and adhered all of those together using glue. I also cut the shadow once from vellum and glued that behind the sentiment. This was then glued to the panel near the bottom.

This panel was then glued to the card base, which is Neenah 110lb. This was a super simple and quick card, but I love how it turned out! I really love the black elements combined with the rainbow colors!

That does it for this one! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope you’ll stop by and check out the entire StampTember line up! There’s so many great things in this release!
