Happy Saturday! It’s time for the latest edition of “Weekender with Wanda” here on the Simon Says Stamp blog! I’m happy to see you today! What did you think of the amazing blog hop posted yesterday? The new Spring Plush Release is totally fun and adorable. I must say that now I am addicted to felt!! Making those little felties is a fun way to try a new craft. If you haven’t done the hop, there’s still time, and there are prizes at every stop.
Remember two weeks ago when I shared all of my favorite crafty picks for Spring? Well, today I’m showcasing some of those products and featuring lovely stamps and dies from Reverse Confetti. I used the beautiful Floral Wrap Die with the Garden Bunch stamps to make a friendship card. I also used one of my favorite new 6×6 paper pads as my color inspiration. The stamps all have matching dies, which makes this project so nice and crisp. The flower stamps can either be three step or two step, depending on the look you want. I chose to use two colors of ink (on the pink ones) and then accented with black in the centers.
This Floral Wrap Die cuts like a dream, and is scored for easy folding. The top edge is a tiny scallop and that is really the sweetest touch. I wrapped my flower bouquet with twine and attached the little heart tag that comes with the die.
I used the Edgers Die set to make a soft rounded border on the top layer. I mounted patterned paper underneath it. Both of the papers are from the same pack so it just looks good together. I stamped my sentiment in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink.
I crammed as many flowers in there as I could! In this photo you can see the scalloped edge and the little tag. I colored the heart portion of the tag with a Copic Marker and then used a little Wink of Stella shimmer on top.
Thanks so very much for spending part of your weekend here with me! I hope this Spring floral card has inspired you to make something fun and cheery today! Have a great day and I’ll see you next weekend!
