Hi

Simon Says Stamp | Dream Big

Hi there!

I’m keeping it really simple today, with some ink smooshing and die cutting…and a fun, bold sentiment.

For this card, I used the Simon Says Stamp “Flower Bundle” die set and the new “Big and Bold” sentiment stamp set.  

I started by pressing my chosen Pawsitively Saturated ink colors directly from the ink pad onto my glass matt.  I spritzed them with water and then gently pressed my watercolor cardstock into it repeatedly to mix the colors.  Here are the colors I used:

         Flowers:   Guava, Watermelon, and Cherry.
         Leaves:    Sprout, Pearfection, Field, and Aegean

I set the card stock aside to dry and cut out the floral wrap from a piece of grocery bag and die cut a scalloped and sticked circle out of white to use as a frame.

I heat embossed my sentiment on a piece of black matte cardstock, then cut it out with a circle die.

Once my cardstock was completely dry, I cut out all the pieces for the flowers, assembled them, and then arranged them inside the floral wrap.  

I arranged all my pieces on a 4.25 x 4.25 card front – popping the flower bundle and the sentiment up with foam adhesive.

For some extra shimmer, I brushed a bit of “Wink of Stella” over the flowers and used some glittery enamel dots from my stash as flower centers.

I felt like the floral wrap needed a little something and decided to use a bit of twine to tie it together.

I hope you like this project and I really appreciate you stopping by today!

Have a wonderfully creative day, everyone!

I love to make cards and enjoy trying out new techniques and products. My artistic “style” differs almost daily – it just depends on what I’m making, the look I’m going for, who the intended recipient is, and, well, sometimes just the mood I’m in.
