Simon Says Stamp | Appreciate You

Hello there, today I have a card and tag to share using the Appreciate You Stamp Set from the new Simon Says Stamp Celebrate release, which is out today. They kindly sent me the set to use that is aimed towards teachers.

I kept the projects simple, keeping lots of white space. I started off by stamping the apple from the Simon Says Stamp Appreciate You Stamp Set onto white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, twice. I then coloured them using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area). 

I stamped two of the sentiments from the set (stamping the teacher one twice) onto white cardstock using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink. I fussy cut the apples and sentiments out using scissors, but there are dies available for the set. 

For the card, I took a US A2 sized white card base and rounded the corners using the Spellbinders 1-2 Corner Rounder and Notch Punch. I then simply adhered the apple and sentiments on top using thin foam tape. To finish, I added white gel pen highlights to the apple. 

For the tag, I die cut a middle size tag from the Hero Arts Nesting Tag Dies from white cardstock. I then cut it down so that it was shorter. I cut the hole reinforcer from black cardstock and adhered that on top using liquid glue. I adhered the apple on top using thin foam tape, as well as the 'teacher' sentiment.

I then stamped the 'thank you' sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Tiny Words Stamp Set onto black cardstock using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was cut into a strip and then adhered to the tag with more thin foam tape. To finish, I added twine through the top of the tag and added white gel pen highlights to the apple.
