I wanted to share a card I made using the Simon Says Stamp Spring Flowers stamp set from their Reason to Smile Release. When I saw this set I knew I had to have it!!
I started by heat embossing the images with Ranger Silver Pearl Embossing Powder (LOVE THIS STUFF) onto some black cardstock. I then cut the centre of the panel out using the Simon Says Stamp Postage Stamp Edge Dies.
On the cut out piece I partially coloured the images with a white pencil and a blending pencil...wow, this worked so well!!
I adhered the negative piece of the die flush to my card base and foam mounted the positive piece back in...PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF I'M GETTING THE POSITIVE/NEGATIVE THING RIGHT!! I GET SO CONFUSED WITH THAT :)
After looking at the card I decided it needed a bit of color, so I placed a few Mint Green Gumdrops from Your Next Stamp.
I also just got the Tilted Banner Sayings and co-ordinating dies (love this set), and decided to make this a Thank-You card.
As you can see, the effect is very subtle. I did add some glitter using the Crafter's Companion Clear Sparkle Overlay brush pen.
Here is a list of products I used:
Thank you SO much for stopping by today!!
Stay Crafty, my friends!!
