Blissful! Simon Says Stamp June Card Kit

Hey everyone,

I have a card share today made using Simon Says Stamp June card kit: Blissful!

I really really love this card kit. Absolutely pretty especially the colours, pattern paper and the stamp set. I used the stamp set to stamp and colour to make this one layer card.

I used the watercolour paper in the kit. I trimmed it to the size of the card front. Then I stamped floral cluster from stamp set on the diagonally opposite ends of the watercolour panel using Versafine black ink. Then I used the watercolours that came in the kit to colour the images.

Then I used MISTI to stamp the sentiments. I stamped two vertically and one horizontally in the middle of the card front. I also used the same watercolours to add splatter to the card. I could not stop there. So I added Nuvo Jewel Drops to complete the card.

Although the kit is sold out, the Blissful stamp set is available for purchase separately.

Thanks for stopping by!

I love the Budding Poppies stamp set from Technique Tuesday. I really wanted to relax so I decided to stamp the poppies and colour them with pencils.

I stamped the poppies all around the landscape oriented kraft card base in black. Then I used shades of red Prisma colour pencils to colour the poppies and buds. The centre of the poppies are coloured yellow. I added shading to one side of the flowers and buds using grey coloured pencils.

For the sentiment, I used Simon Says Stamp Believe stamp set. I black heat embossed the big scripty believe at the centre of the card front with the smaller sentiment below the big sentiment. Then I used glossy accent to add dew drops to the flowers and around the sentiment. Sorry I took my photo before the glossy accent drop dried. Because of that they show better on the photo.

Hope you like it. All the supplies used to make this card is listed below the post.

Simon Says Stamp Cherished Release!

Hello everyone,

I am so excited about Simon Says Stamp’s Cherished release. So many gorgeous new stamp sets, stencils, dies and sequins. I am so lucky to receive the new Floral Sparkle Wreath die. Thank you so much Heidi for your generosity. Here is the picture of the die.

Love love the delicate wreath. So pretty. I decided to make a wreath using the die to make my card.

I die cut a white panel using the Floral Sparkle Wreath die. Then I used two stitched circle die to die cut into a circular wreath. To highlight the die cut wreath, I die cut a larger circle die using masking paper and used the negative panel to mask the card front. I then blended distress inks Victorian Velvet, Milled Lavender and Pumice Stone. I spattered some clean clear water to add texture to the sponged area. I removed the mask and adhered the circle wreath die cut using foam adhesive in the middle of the masked circle.

The sentiment is made of die cut and stamped strip. The die cut sentiment is from an older Simon die called I Love You. I only used the “love” die to die cut twice using white cardstock and once using gold foil cardstock. I stacked and glued them with the gold die cut on top. I adhered this to the centre of the wreath on the card front. The stamped sentiment is from Kristina’s Love stamp set simply stamped on a strip of white cardstock and adhered below the die cut sentiment using foam adhesives. I also die cut some heart shapes using Simon Says Stamp dies and adhered as shown. To embellish the wreath, I used Nuvo Crystal drops.

All the new products from Cherished Release is available at Simon Says Stamp Store.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Happy Shopping!
