Pop of Background Color

Hi friends! Happy Tuesday! Thanks for stopping by the blog today! Please join me in a warm welcome to special guest Heather Hoffman!

Pop of Background Color

Good morning! Heather Hoffman here this morning – and I’m thrilled to be back as a guest here on the Simon Says Stamp Blog with a few cards I put together combining some adorable Winnie and Walter stamps with some SSS Exclusive Dies!

I decided to use some of the many Winnie and Walter Mini Scenery Stamp sets to create a focal point on which to rest some adorable critters and die cut and stamped sentiments. I kept the color scheme very soft and neutral, and used only 3 Copic markers to color all the images!

Pop of Background Color

I stamped my backgrounds using a few lovely SSS Dye Inks and my MISTI to line them up perfectly. Then I stamped several cute critters, colored them all in neutral grays, and fussy cut them out.

Pop of Background Color

I die cut the stamped panels, attached the colored critters with foam adhesive, then die cut some sentiments from black cardstock and glued those down. I added a little to each of the sentiments from the coordinating Winnie and Walter Stamps before mounting on (Simon Says Stamp Fog) soft gray top folding card bases.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!
