Colorful Butterfly Background | Simon Says Stamp

Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing a card using the Outline Butterflies background stamp from Simon Says Stamps new release.

I stamped the Outline Butterflies background on some Bristol Smooth paper with Versamark ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I then blended over the embossed background with Distress Oxide ink. I used the colors Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, and Wilted Violet. I adhered the background panel to an A2 size card base.

I stamped a sentiment from the Love You Mama stamp set from Simon Says Stamp on some vellum and embossed it with Alabaster embossing powder from Brutus Monroe. I fussy cut that sentiment out and popped it up on the card with foam tape.

I stamped a smaller sentiment on white cardstock with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink. I cut it into a small strip and popped it up above the larger sentiment. Next I used a white Prismacolor pencil to color in the butterflies in the background.

To finish up the card I added some clear sequins. I also used Wink of Stella on the smaller sentiment as well as on some of the butterflies in the background.

Creating a Glitter Texture Paste | Simon Says Stamp

Hello crafty friends! Today I revisited a card design from a few weeks ago to see if I could improve on a technique that didn’t quite go as planned. I am really happy with the way things turned out this time!

1.jpg

I taped down a piece of Canson watercolor paper to a board and then taped down the Triangle Blast stencil on top of it. I blended over the stencil with a few different colors of Distress Oxide ink. I used the colors Seedless Preserves, Salty Ocean, Wilted Violet, Tumbled Glass, and Black Soot.

Next I took transparent gloss texture paste from Ranger and mixed it together with some Unicorn Dust glitter from Simon Says Stamp to create my own glitter texture paste. I spread that over the stencil. Once it was smoothed out I removed the stencil and set the background aside to dry.

For the sentiment I picked out some stamps from the Great Things stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I stamped them with Versamark ink on Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock and embossed them with Alabaster white embossing powder from Brutus Monroe. I cut the two smaller sentiments into strips and fussy cut the larger one. I arranged the sentiments on a strip of vellum and adhered them with Gina K Designs Connect Glue.

I wrapped the vellum strip around my background and adhered the flaps to the back. I then mounted that panel onto a piece of Fog cardstock and then popped up the whole thing onto an A2 size card base. For the finishing touches I first added some sequins and went over them with Glossy Accents. Finally I went over the different parts of the sentiment with Wink of Stella glitter.

My Husband Makes Me a Birthday Card!

Today my husband took over and made me a birthday card!

First he took a piece of Bristol Smooth paper and added strips of washi tape across it. He then blended each section with a different color of Distress Oxide ink. He used the colors Festive Berries, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Lucky Clover, Blueprint Sketch, and Wilted Violet. He then laid out a bunch of the sentiments from the Tiny Words stamp set from Simon Says Stamp along the white stripes created by the washi tape and stamped them with the Misti Tool using a gray ink.

Next he picked out the numbers 3 and 1 from the Birthday Numbers stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and also the happy birthday sentiment from the Greetings Galore stamp set from My Favorite Things. He embossed them with white embossing powder on Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock.

He stamped the balloons from the Birthday Numbers stamp set onto some Neenah Solar white cardstock with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink. He colored those in with Copic markers. He used the Scan N Cut 2 in order to cut out all of the stamped images.

To put the card together he first glued the background panel to an A2 size card base. He used liquid glue to adhere the balloons and foam tape to pop up the numbers and the sentiment. To finish up he went over the balloons with Glossy Accents.

I stamped all of the bunnies from the set on Bristol Smooth paper with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink and colored them in with Arteza watercolor markers. I fussy cut the images out using my Scan N Cut 2.

Good Luck Card | Distress Oxide Blending and Texture Paste

Hello crafty people! Today I created a card using some products from CZ Designs and Simon Says Stamp!

4.JPG

I started by creating a background with some Distress Oxide ink blending. I used the colors Festive Berries, Worn Lipstick, Wild Honey, and Squeezed Lemonade. I then added some texture to the panel using Ranger Transparent Gloss Texture Paste and the Mod Stripe stencil from Simon Says Stamp.

1.jpg

I used the Good Luck die set from CZ Designs and cut out the word three times our of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White and glued them together to make a really dimensional piece. I then cut the shadow die out of Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock and glued the dimensional word to that. I stamped a few sentiments from the Great Things stamp with Versamark ink on black cardstock and embossed them with white embossing powder.

4.JPG

I mounted my textured panel onto a piece of black cardstock and then popped that whole panel up onto a card base with foam tape. I glued the die cut sentiment in the middle of the card with Gina K Designs Connect Glue. I then popped up my smaller sentiment strips above and below the die cut sentiment.

To finish up the card I filled in some of the areas around the sentiment with sequins. I used the Girl’s Best Friend sequin mix from Simon Says Stamp. I also went over the small sentiment strips with Wink of Stella glitter.
