Simon Says Stamp | Groovy Blooms

Hello there, apologies once again for my lack of blog posts lately. I had a procedure to try and help with my migraines and unfortunately (although as to be expected), it made them worse for some time. I am finally back in my craft room today and wanted to share a card that I made before the procedure using the latest Simon Says Stamp Be Bold release. They kindly sent me the Groovy Blooms Layering Stencils to play with and they are a lot of fun! 

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

I started off my card by taking a panel of white cardstock and placed it in the corner of the Altenew Stampwheel. I then placed the first Simon Says Stamp Groovy Blooms Layering Stencils on top. These stencils are really easy to line up and I think you can use them in any order. 

I then added ink blending on top using Ink Blending Brushes. For the flowers I used Concord & 9th Wildberry Ink, the flower centres use Concord & 9th Buttercup and Creamsicle Inks. For the leaves, I used Sprout & Parsley Inks. It was then cut into panel and adhered to a US A2 (4.25" x 5.5") sized white card base. 

I die cut the 'thanks' sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp CZ Design Basic Trip Dies three times from black cardstock. They were adhered one on top of another and then onto the card using Bearly Art Glue. I stamped a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Big Thanks Words Stamp Set onto black cardstock using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was cut into a strip and adhered to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Hero Arts Sunset Enamel Dots

There are so many colour combinations that can be used with these stencils. I kept the flowers all the same colour, but they can be different colours, you would just have to do a bit of masking. Thank you so much for stopping by today, I really appreciate it. I hope you have a wonderful day!
