SSS Happy and Joyful Release Blog Hop – Day 1

Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday!
Welcome to Day 1 of the Simon Says Stamp Happy and Joyful Release Blog Hop. I’m so excited to be a part of this cheerful blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Cheiron Brandon’s blog you are on the right track.

For my first card, I’m featuring so gorgeous Thankful Magnolia & Soft Plaid Background stamp sets.


For the background panel, I stamped the Soft Plaid Background on thick white cardstock using Altenew Rocky Shore dye ink, trimmed it down with 3.75″ x 5″ Basic Rectangle panel die. I then inked the edges of the panel with Altenew Rocky Shore dye ink, heat embossed the edges in gold. Lastly, I tore the bottom of the Soft Plaid panel.

I stamped the Magnolia onto watercolour paper using VersaFine Onyx Black, coloured it with some Distress inks, and then fussy cut it out. I mounted all elements on Neenah Smooth Desert Storm card base.




For my second card, I used the Baby Words die along with the Soft Plaid Background stamp. I stamped the Soft Plaid Background with SSS Cotton Candy dye ink, trimmed it down using the Wonky Rectangles die. I made a stroller using the Interactive Baby Stroller die and for the sentiment, I used brand new Baby Words die.
