Hello crafty friends, happy Saturday!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Hey Bestie and Love You More Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from super talented Yana Smakula’s blog you are on the right track!
Simon Says Stamp is undoubtedly a powerful stamp company that doesn’t require any introduction and these two (Hey Bestie & Love You More) released products are super awesome as always. I’m so happy and honoured to be a part of this amazing blog hop!
For my first card, I am featuring the new CZ Design Big Ampersand die along with the other Simon’s products. I started by making my own background panel with the You Are background stamp. I die cut a 4.25 x 5.5″ rectangle panel from thick white cardstock using the Basic Rectangles die set, stamped the text from the You Are background stamp with Tattered Rose Distress ink, and then blended some part of the panel with Tattered Rose & Worn Lipstick Distress inks.
For this floral Ampersand, I die cut the Big Ampersand from Tonic Welsh Gold Glitter cardstock, shadow from thick white cardstock, then glue them together. I stamped & polychromos coloured flowers (from More Spring Flowers & Even More Spring Flowers sets) and then die cut them with the matching dies. For the white leaves, I used the Detailed Leaf Cluster die. I adhered all elements as shown in the picture using foam tape.
For the tiny “LOVE YOU” sentiment, I used the Tiny Words stamp set – I white heat embossed it onto the Lipstick Red cardstock.
For my second card, I’m featuring the Wedding Rings dies along with other Simon’s products. I die cut the Winter Foliage Frame from watercolour paper, stamped the text from the You Are background stamp using Tea Dye Distress ink, then blended it with Tea Dye & Worn Lipstick Distress inks.
I die cut the bride’s wedding ring from white, glitter gold and glitter white cardstock, and then assembled them together using fine tip glue pen. I decorated the ring with simple outlined flower and red “WITH LOVE” sentiment banner.
This ring looks real, don’t you think? :D
For my last (but not least) blog hop card, I’m featuring the Peony Bouquet stencil and the CZ Design Like You stamp & word die set. These two products are my most favourites among the entire new products, especially the Peony Bouquet stencil is a MUST HAVE!!
I placed the Peony Bouquet stencil onto watercolour paper panel in place, and then inked Lipstick Red, Green Apple and Green Leaf dye inks using blender brushes. For the sentiment, I stamped it from the Like You Words set in pigment black, die cut the word “Like You” & shadow from white cardstock, glue them together using fine tip glue pen. I added some water drops using Tonic Nuvo Morning Dew Crystal Drops.
