Simon Says Stamp Instagram Hop “Let’s Chill” Release

Hi everyone! I hope you are following all the amazing inspiration on the Instagram hop for Simon Says Stamp (SSS). The designers always hit it out of the park!

Today, I have a fairly simple card but I love it so much! I hope you do too.

This “life’s a beach” saying is just too perfect. And what’s more perfect than a striped beach towel? That was my inspiration for the die cut words. I cut multiple colors of pretty cardstock to 1/4 inch wide and adhered them to a thin piece of paper. I then cut the stripes using the “beach” die. I added the words to a piece of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock that measured 2 1/4 by 4 inches. This was adhered to a white panel that measured 4 by 5 1/4 inches.

I added 1/4 inch strips of holographic cardstock to the top and bottom of the tan cardstock giving it so much beautiful shine! Hero Arts shell dies were cut from white cardstock and adhered to the panel to add a bit of interest to the background. Any extra was trimmed off.

I added the secondary sentiment using the Happy Spring Sentiment Strips. For that last added touch of “beachy fun”, I used a flamingo die and colored it with Copic markers. I cut the legs just a little bit to ensure I didn’t cover the fun stripes. The finished panel was added to a top folding white A2 card base.
