Friend, You Got This!

Hello there, today I have a card to share with you using the Simon Says Stamp Chevron Pattern stamp. This is a 6" x 6" background stamp that is perfect to work with lots of other elements. I simply paired it with a sentiment today. 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

I started off by stamping the Simon Says Stamp Chevron Pattern Stamp on to white cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied WOW! Bright White Embossing Powder and heat set. Using Simon Says Stamp Blending Brushes - Large, I blended on Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks in (top to bottom) Dried Marigold, Kitsch Flamingo, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet and Villainous Potion

I removed the excess ink from the embossing with a dry cloth and then cut the panel down to 3.75" x 5". It was adhered to an A2 white card base with thin foam tape. I die cut the Simon Says Stamp Big Friend Die three times from white cardstock (with adhesive sheet on the back) for the main word and once from vellum for the shadow. They were layered up on top of each other and added to the card with Bearly Art Glue. 

I die cut small flowers from the Spellbinders Petite Floral Potpourri Die Set and added them to the card (two die cuts high). I then took the sentiment from the CZ Design Reverse Sentiment Strips Happy Set and cut it using a Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Label Die. I painted the sides with Memento Tuxedo Black Pen (to cover the white core of the paper) and adhered it to the card with more thin foam tape. To finish off, I added Little Things from Lucy's Cards Soft Black Pearls to the flower centres.

The purple looks a bit odd in the photo, like the ink blending is patchy, but in real-life it is perfect; so I am not sure what happened there! There is actually a new release from Simon Says Stamp hitting the shop tomorrow, so be sure to keep your eye out for that! Thank you so much for stopping by to see me today, I really do appreciate it. I hope you have a lovely day!
