Simon Says Stamp | Delicate Pine Branches

Hello there, today I have a card and tag to share with you using the new Simon Says Stamp Delicate Pine Branches Embossing Folder from the Handmade Holiday release which is out today. If you haven't tried these embossing folders from Simon Says Stamp, they are much more dimensional than lots on the market in my opinion. They give such beautiful results!

For my card and tag, I wanted to create a frosty look to the pine branches. Kind of like what I use as props for my photos! In real life, they are very sparkly but sadly, it is difficult to capture that in the photos. 

For the card, I started off by running the Simon Says Stamp Delicate Pine Branches Embossing Folder through my die cutting machine with a panel of white cardstock inside.  I then added ink to the panel with blending brushes and Distress Inks. I used Evergreen Bough, Lucky Clover, Pine Needles and Black Soot. Using a foam ink blending tool, I then pounced Hero Arts Unicorn Pigment Ink on to the branches.

I took the panel to my Splat Box and spritzed on Sparkle Sheet Shimmer Spritz. I then pounced on more Unicorn Pigment Ink and let it sit to dry. Once dry, I adhered it to an A2 white card base with foam tape. I took the sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Tiny Words Christmas Stamp Set and stamped it on to Pitch Black cardstock. 

I applied white detail embossing powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip using the Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Labels Dies and added to the card with thin foam squares. To finish off, I added Lucy's Bubbles

For the tag, I first die cut a white tag using the Hero Arts Tag Infinity Dies. I placed it in the Simon Says Stamp Delicate Pine Branches Embossing Folder and ran it through my die cutting machine. Using ink blending brushes, I blended on the same Distress Inks as the card, but this time added in Chipped Sapphire. I spritzed on the same shimmer spray and then added the white pigment ink and let it sit to dry.

I die cut the tag hole reinforcer from Pitch Black Cardstock and then added twine through the top. The sentiment, from the same Simon Says Stamp Tiny Words Christmas Stamp Set, was heat embossed on to black cardstock, cut out and added to the tag with thin foam tape. To finish off, I added more Lucy's Bubbles
