Hi guys!!  Today is a good day!!  Today is the day that Simon Says Stamp has a new release called Fluttering By.  But you’ll want to do more than just flutter by.  You’ll want to stop and shop for awhile because it’s full of lovely butterflies and great new stamp sets for the upcoming Mother’s Day.  I even saw something for those grads too!

I had sooo much fun creating these cards for this release.  And they were pretty simple to make too.  All I did was heat emboss the flowers, ink blend them in a rainbow of colors, heat emboss the word “Mom” onto some vellum, then glue them all to my pre-made background.

 

I LOVE anything in rainbow!!  Look at those colors!

I added a strip of silver glitter paper to the bottom of the first card because I felt like it needed a little something else.  I think it was just what it needed.  I actually thought I had ruined this first card when I was gluing it all together because I put glue on the back of the word “MOM” and when I stuck it to my background it wasn’t a flat surface so you could see everywhere that the flowers were raised through the silver embossing powder!!  Does that make sense?  Here, I’ll try and show you:

It’s REALLY hard to tell in this photo (it’s actually just a screenshot from my video), but if you look at the shadows in the letters, that’s where it looked lumpy.  Now’s a good time to mention that photographing silver embossing powder is IMPOSSIBLE!!!  My goodness, I had a hard time with that.  The silver E.P. and the acetate are two of the hardest things I’ve come across to photograph.  But I will say that the lumpiness mellowed out after letting it sit there for awhile, so you can’t even see it in my photographs.  But when making it, I thought I had ruined it.

See, it mellowed out pretty nicely.  You can still see it a bit, but it’s definitely not as bad as it first was.  But at the time, I panicked and quickly made a backup.  I mean, this was my first project for Simon Says Stamp!!  I couldn’t post less than stellar artwork!!  Heavens no!!  Boy, am I glad I panicked though because what I made next, made me “ooh” and “aaah”.

Doesn’t it look AWESOME on acetate?!?  I LOVE how this one turned out!!

But I wised up when I made this one and used scor tape on the back of the letters but only put the scor tape where the flowers met the letters.  So the “O” has no adhesive on the back.  But that’s ok because scor tape is amazing and I know it isn’t going anywhere.

If I make this one again, I’d love to have a full card front of acetate tucked behind the alcohol inked background.  So if you lifted the acetate, you would only see the flowers.  The “MOM” would still be on the acetate.  Wouldn’t that look cool?IMG_2705-copy

So now that you’ve seen a little corner of this new release, head over and do some shopping at Simon Says Stamp!!  I’ve included links to the ENTIRE release below!!  Thanks so much for stopping by!!
