Hi everyone…I’m so happy to be back as a guest on the Simon Says Stamp Blog! My card today is all about giving some love to your dies! I used four different dies on this card and I think that they ended up working perfectly together.

I started out by die cutting some of the Simon Says Stamp Mini Hearts from masking paper and randomly placing them on a 4″x5.25″ piece of watercolor paper. Then I used some peach and pink watercolors to create the watercolor background. Be careful not to let too much water sit around the edges of the heart masks so it doesn’t seep underneath. Once that was dry I die cut the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle and mounted the panel to a card base made from Simon Says Stamp Fog Cardstock.

Next, I moved on to the sentiment. I die cut the Hero Arts Love and Die Cut from from both gold glitter paper and white cardstock. Then I adhered them together, creating a drop shadow with the white one behind. This adds some awesome dimension and make the word “love” pop off the card! I stamped the coordinating “you so much” message on a Simon Says Stamp Small Folded Banner Die using Simon Says Stamp Hollyhock Ink. Before I adhered the messages with foam adhesive, I stamped a few of the small heart images from the Love Stamp + Cut set with VersaMark ink in the circle window.

I finished off the card with some gold glitter die cut hearts covered in Glossy Accents. Now, I think I’ll tuck this card away and save it for my hubby on Valentine’s Day.Β  Thanks for stopping by today!
