Simon Says Stamp | Arched Borders

Hello there, today I have a card and tag to share with you using the new Arched Borders stamp set from Simon Says Stamp as part of their new Yay You release, which is out today. This is a really fun set with sentiments, a few images (flowers, hearts, leaves) and some arched borders. 

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

I started off my card by stamping the leaf border from the Simon Says Stamp Arched Borders Stamp Set on to Tim Holtz Watercolor Paper using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. I then took it to my splat box and sprayed Distress Ink Spray Stains on top. I used Twisted Citron, Salvaged Patina, Peacock Feathers and Mermaid Lagoon. I also added a little water here are there. 

I set the panel aside to dry and once dry, wiped off any excess ink off of the embossing powder with a dry cloth. It was then die cut using a Hero Arts Nesting Rectangle Infinity Dies and adhered to an A2 white card base with foam tape. I took the Simon Says Stamp Sending Die and die cut it three times from white cardstock. 

They were stacked up one on top of another and adhered to the card. I then took the hugs sentiment from the Arched Borders set and stamped it on to black cardstock and heat embossed in white. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Lucy's Cards Bubbles

I couldn't resist creating a tag too! So I took a panel of cardstock that I had made previously while making these cards and die cut it using a Hero Arts Tag Infinity Die. I took the leaf image from the Simon Says Stamp Arched Borders Stamp Set and stamped it on to vellum using Versamark Ink

I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was then fussy cut out with scissors. I heat embossed another sentiment from the set on to black cardstock and cut it in to a strip. It was added to the leaf using foam tape and then in turn to the tag using tape runner. To finish off, I added twine through the top and tied in a bow.

  1. This is stunning Michelle. At first I thought the arch was a die cut. It really stands out so well against your beautiful background. Those colours are absolutely gorgeous together. The little tag is adorable too with it's vellum leaf spray. The texture and interest you get from your backgrounds is amazing. I really need to get my bottom into gear and make some backgrounds with my sprays. Thank you for the inspiration!
