We are showcasing Simon Says Stamp Products this week. If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge.
As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.
I’ve been wanting to use this Deco Diamonds background stamp for a bit now so I made a couple different background panels. First I heat embossed clear embossing powder on Fog card stock and then I heat embossed white embossing powder on Fog card stock. I took a piece of scrap Bristol paper and ink blended a little Wilted Violet Distress Ink. Then I used it to cut the Big Thanks die. I heat embossed the rest of the sentiment on black card stock with white embossing powder. I added a couple Nuvo drops in Crushed Grapes and Ebony Black
I cut the background down to 4″ by 5.25″ and added a black card base.
This card was even easier. All I did was cut out a square using the stitched square die by Lawn Fawn and added another layer with black card stock. I white heat embossed my sentiment from the Playful Messages stamp set. I cut the background image down to 4″ by 5.25″ again and added it to a black card base. I added a couple Onyx Crystals from Studio Katia for a little embellishment.
For this last one, I used the Folk Dance Background stamp and I heat embossed it with white embossing powder on Bristol Smooth card stock. Then I ink blended Distress Oxides in Picked Raspberry, Orange Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron and Broken China. Again, I cut the Big Thanks die out of black and white card stock. I used the “You’re a Stellar Human” stamp from the Simple Sentiments stamp set and added some Nuvo drops in Caribbean Ocean, Carnation Pink and Ripened Pumpkin.
I cut my front panel down again and added to another black card base.
And since the inside was black, I added a panel to write a message on and I stamped the same Folk Dance image on the inside using Fog ink.
I went over both of the ‘Thanks’ die with a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen
So now it’s YOUR turn, Happy Crafting!!
