Kind Flowers

My Simon Says Stamp November 2017 Card Kit was lost in the mail.  Because of this, I haven’t been able to use it as much as I would have liked yet. But the holiday break is coming, and I hope to really play with it then.

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I wanted to dry adding white embossing over a color pencil colored image. Once I had the stamp aligned in my MISTI, I decided to make two cards with slightly different colors.

I stamped the floral image on two strips of light grey paper. I used colored pencils to color in both images. Then I re-stamped the images with Versa Mark ink and white heat embossed them. I didn’t do a great job with the embossing, but the overall look is cool.

I created two card bases next; one blue and one purple. I used white pigment ink to stamp the individual floral images all over the card bases.

Then, I got out the die machine. I added some stitching to the edges of each grey panel. I also cut some scalloped borders for each card.

I stamped the rest of the sentiments with gray ink on small strips of white card stock. I adhered these strips to the stamped panels using foam tape.

Lastly, I adhered all the layers to the card bases.

My November 2017 Simon Says Stamp Monthly Card Kit was lost in the mail for almost three weeks. Luckily, it still arrived. This is the first card I made with it.

Details

Size:  Horizontal side fold A2 card

Extra Details: This card was super simple to put together. I covered a white card base with some of the patterned paper. I adhered one of the manufacturing strips across the middle of the card. I cut the alpha paper apart so I could create the work “Thanks.” I used foam tape to pop the letter up off the card front and made sure to cover the hole in the manufacturing stip. That was it and the card was finished.

Paper: Pebbles Heart of Home Collection

 

 

Hope you enjoyed the card!
