Today I am excited to be participating in Simon Says Stamp Sending Sunshine Release Blog Hop! The release was yesterday. So all the new products I am showcasing today are available for purchase at Simon Says Stamp store.
Your are on the last stop in the blog hop. If you are hopping then you should have come from talented Anna-Karin Evaldsson‘s blog. If not, don’t worry I will provide you with the list of all the designers in the blog hop towards the end of the post.
Sending Sunshine release is gorgeous. So much fun summery products to play with colours. I love it all. For my project, I have used Deco Diamond background stamp with Flower Cluster die and Four Seasons Saying stamp set.
I love combining patterns. So here, I combined a deco pattern with floral pattern with lots of colour and contrast. I stamped and white heat embossed the Deco Diamond on Neenah Solar White panel. Then sponged distress inks in rainbow colours for an emboss resist technique. I trimmed this panel to 4″x5.25″ in size.
Then I die cut Flower Cluster die three times using black glitter paper from Simon. I arranged and glued the die cuts on top of the panel. I love the high contrast of the black glitter against the rainbow resist background. I trimmed off the over hangs. Then I adhered this panel on white card base using foam adhesives.
The sentiment from Four Seasons Sayings stamp set is white heat embossed on black cardstock, trimmed and adhered using foam adhesives. Finally some black sequins to tie in all the black together.
Here are some closeups of the card.
Love love how the two patterns go well with each other. What I really love to do with the Deco Diamond background stamp is to gold heat emboss on black cardstock. That will bring out the true art deco out of the stamp set. I will share that project in another post. All the supplies used to make this card are listed below.
