Embossing on Patterned Paper | SSS July 2019 Card Kit

Hey friends! Have you seen the Simon Says Stamp July card kit? I am in love. I especially love that gorgeous patterned paper from Honey Bee Stamps! Today I wanted to share with y’all what I made using this kit.

I started by stamping the honeycomb shapes from the stamp set onto one of the piece of patterned paper with Versamark ink. I embossed that with rose gold embossing powder from Simon Says Stamp. I then took that same embossing powder and embossed the heart shaped bee trail from the set onto some vellum.

For my sentiment I decided to emboss a stamp one Gina K Designs In The Navy cardstock with Alabaster white embossing powder. I cut the sentiment into a strip and I fussy cut out my vellum heart. I popped up the sentiment onto the heart with foam tape and then glued the whole thing to my background.

I mounted the background panel onto a piece of vellum and then popped up that entire thing onto an A2 size card base. To add some interest to the card I used Glossy Accents and added some dots to some of the honeycomb spots in the background. I sprinkled Unicorn Dust glitter over the card and it stuck to anywhere where I had that Glossy Accents.

For the finishing touches I first went over the sentiment with Wink of Stella glitter. I then added a heart sticker to the sentiment and some Moonshine sequins to the background.

Hexagon Element Honeycomb | Simon's New Rest & Refresh Release

Hey guys! Today I have a card featuring the new Hexagon Element die from Simon’s Rest and Refresh release.

First I taped a piece of Canson Watercolor paper to a board. I painted a really organic background using some Prima watercolors. I trimmed the background to 4x5.25 and popped it up on an A2 card base.

I die cut the Hexagon Element shape three times out of Neenah cardstock and adhered them together to make a dimensional piece. I then glued that piece to my card. To give the look of a honeycomb I filled each of the hexagons with Glossy Accents.

For the sentiment I first die cut the word “honey” using the Archie Jr alphabet die set from Simon Says Stamp out of slate cardstock. For the second part of the sentiment I used the Tiny Words die set and stamp the sentiment with Gina K’s Jet Black Amalgam ink on Neenah cardstock. I glued the letters with Gina K Connect Glue and the smaller sentiment with foam tape.

Next I went over the letters with Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents. I also went over the sentiment strip with Wink of Stella.

To finish up the card I added some sequins from the Heaven Sent sequin mix from Lucy’s Cards.
