Simon Says Stamp | Happy Birthday Cards

Hello there, today I have two cards to share with you using the new Basic Box Card Happy Birthday Die from the new Simon Says Stamp Good Luck Charm Release, which is out today. It is as great release, as always, filled with lots of new products including re-inkers for the Pawsitively Saturated Ink Pads and new colours too!

As mentioned, I am using the new Basic Box Card Happy Birthday Die today. This is made to work alongside the Basic Box Card Die, which creates a fabulous 3D box card that folds down flat for mailing. As you can see though, the happy birthday die works perfectly for other cards too! I thought I would create a pink/orange card today and also a blue/green one! 


For my first card, I started off by stamping the Simon Says Stamp Hand Lettered Friends Stamp on to a panel of Arches Hot Pressed Watercolour Paper using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. I then took it to my splat box and sprayed it liberally with water first, followed by Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stains in Kitsch Flamingo, Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade and Spiced Marmalade. It was then set aside to dry before die cutting using the Sunny Studio Slimline Pennants Dies


It was adhered to an A2 white card base with foam tape. I then die cut the Simon Says Stamp Basic Box Card Happy Birthday Die three times from white cardstock and layered them up one on top of another using Bearly Art Glue. I cut the shadow from vellum and adhered the words on top. It was added to the card with more liquid glue. 


I took the sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Big Thanks Stamp Set and stamped it on to white cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied gold embossing powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card with more liquid glue and foam tape. To finish off, I die cut three Spellbinders So Many Butterflies Etched Dies from Simon Says Stamp Gold Glitter Cardstock and adhered them to the card. 


For my next card, I started off by stamping the Simon Says Stamp Abstract Triangles Stamp on to more Arches watercolour paper using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. For this piece, I used Tim Holtz Distress Sprays Stains and Oxide Sprays. 


I used Villainous Potion, Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers and Salvaged Patina Distress Spray Stains and Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass Oxide Spray. It was then cut down in to two parts, for some added interest. 


The panels were adhered to an A2 white card base with foam tape. I then die cut the Simon Says Stamp Basic Box Card Happy Birthday Die another three times from white cardstock and the shadow from vellum. They were adhered together and added to the card. To finish off, I added a few enamel dots.
