Altenew, Die cuts, Simon Says Stamp

Simon Says Stamp “Hello Beautiful” release

It’s that time again… a new release from Simon Says Stamp (SSS)! I am always excited for these new releases. It’s so much fun seeing everything! You can see the whole release in it’s glory here.

Lately, I have been absolutely loving stencils. They are so versatile and they have a great price point. For this release, I had the pleasure of using the “Mix and Match Squares“. I had a whole lot of fun with this one! I have 2 rainbow themed cards for you today!

I started with a panel of Bristol Smooth paper cut a little smaller than 4 1/4 by 5 1/2. I added the stencil and ink blended Ruby Red, Sunkissed, Citrus Burst, Firefly, Sea Breeze and Wisteria inks from Altenew. I then slightly shifted the stencil and applied a layer of Gina K Glitz Glitter Gel in Iridescent over the panel. Setting this aside to dry, I started work on my other elements. I cut the Leaf Branch Die 3 times from heavy white cardstock and adhered using a liquid spray glue. I stamped Hello Sunshine on a small tag with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink and embossed with embossing powder.

I added all elements to my dried panel including some twine. I lined the back panel with foam tape and adhered to an A2 top folding card base.

For my next card, I did a similar type of card with selective ink blending over the stencil. I achieved this by simply masking off the areas that I didn’t want. I started with a lighter set of inks from Altenew which included: Frosty pink, Sunkissed, Citrus Burst, Firefly, Sea Breeze, and Wisteria. These were ink blended on a panel of Bristol Smooth paper. Again, I off set the stencil and ink blended: Coral Berry, Orange Cream, Fresh Lemon, Grass Field, Turquoise, and Hydrangea.

I cut the “Sending Smiles” sentiment from holographic cardstock and foam for dimension. All elements were added to the panel with liquid glue including the clear drops. I added foam tape to the back of the panel and adhered to a top folding A2 card base.

I hope you enjoyed the cards today!

Stay crafty my friends!
