Hello there, the new All The Feels Release from Simon Says Stamp is out today and I have two cards to share with you using a few new products. They kindly sent me their new Spring Flowers Background and I thought it was so pretty but I often do emboss resist with background stamps, so I wanted to something a little different with this one.
I thought that I would create two cards using the same design but different orientation - one being A2 size (finished card size 4.25" x 5.5") and one being mini slimline (3.15" x 6.25"). I started off the mini slimline card by die cutting a panel of cardstock using one of the new Simon Says Stamp Mini Slimline Rectangles Dies from white cardstock.
I then stamped the Simon Says Stamp Spring Flowers Background on top with Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue Ink. Using blending brushes, I blended on more of the Audrey Blue ink, focusing most of the colour on the outside edges. I then went in with Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot.
I did the same thing for the A2 card but instead of creating a layer, I masked of the card base with a stencil and then did the same process of stamping and ink blending before removing the stencil. For the A2 card, I simply then stamped the sentiment from the new Simon Says Stamp XL Greetings 2 Stamp Set on top with Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink.
For the mini slimline, I adhered the layer on the card card base with foam tape and then added the sentiment on top. It is also from the Simon Says Stamp XL Greetings 2 Stamp Set but this time, I stamped it in Versamark Ink, applied white embossing powder, heat set and then cut it in to strips using the Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Labels Dies. To finish off, I added a few Lucy's Dewdrops.
