Miss You, Love You

Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Make It Sparkle

We are showcasing Stamping Bella 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 $25 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!! I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

 

I’m in love with this image by Stamping Bella called Curvy Girl With a Diamond. Isn’t she just beautiful? I started out by stamping her on X-Press It Blending Card so that I could color her with my Copic Markers. While I still had her in my Misti, I stamped her again only this time I only stamped the diamond and I stamped it on a piece of the Holographic card stock by Simon Says Stamp.

I accidentally stamped it using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink because that’s what I used to stamp my girl but I quickly realized that the Memento ink wasn’t going to stick so I stamped it again using StazOn Jet Black Ink. Then I fussy cut the diamond out.

I colored her with my Copic Markers. I’ve listed the colors that I used below. Once she was colored, I fussy cut her out as well.

Copic Markers Used:

Skin: E00, E11, E13, R20, R30

Hair: E51, E55, E57

Dress: R81, R83, R85, V000, V01

Flowers: R81, R85, YR00, YR01, G46, G43, Y19

I quickly glued my fussy cut diamond in place because I couldn’t wait to see how it was going to look once it was put together. I immediately loved it!!

I chose a patterned paper for my background from the Moda Scrap paper pack called Let Your Soul Bloom. It’s so pretty and I thought it was perfect for this card. I die cut the patterned paper using a Stitched Rectangle Die.

For my sentiment I used two from the Clean Line Everyday stamp set by Simon Says Stamp and CZ Design. I heat embossed them on black card stock with Alabaster White Embossing Powder. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut my sentiments out.

I added some craft foam to the back of the patterned paper and attached it to an A2 size piece of Rose Gold Glitter card stock using Scor Tape. I find the scor tape works really well with glitter card stock. For everything else I used liquid glue.

 

I adhered everything to a side folding card base. I attached a little piece of craft foam behind the diamond that hangs off of the card stock because I’m going to be mailing this across the US. For a finishing touch, I used my Spectrum Noir glitter pen on the flowers and the ruffles of her dress and then my card was ready to be mailed.

So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!
