Hi guys! I’m so excited to be over on the Simon Says Stamp blog with a fun birthday card, featuring Lawn Fawn. My slimline card is a nice mix of new and older products, showing how seamlessly all the sets combine to create a unique scene!
To begin, I cut Bristol smooth cardstock using the Portrait Scalloped Slimline Die. I taped off the scalloped edges with washi tape, then ink blended the background with Salty Ocean, Broken China, and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide inks. Next, I placed the Starry Sky Stencil over the top portion of the background and applied a layer of Gina K Iridescent Glitz Glitter Gel to add some shimmer and texture to my background.
Next, I stamped, colored with Copic markers, and die cut images from the following sets:
- Blue Skies
- Virtual Friends/ Coordinating Dies
- Easter Before ‘N Afters (basket for hot air balloon)
- All the Clouds
After I die cut the baskets from the Easter Before ‘N Afters, I simply cut the handle off to create a fun little basket for the critters! Next, I arranged the colored images onto my card, attaching some with foam tape for dimension.
I then stamped the Happy Birthday from Really High Five in Jet Black Premium Ink along the bottom of my card. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of Black Licorice cardstock using Clear Embossing Ink and embossed it with White Embossing Powder to complete my card.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks to Tammy for being our guest!
Hello there, friends! It’s Nina-Marie Trapani back with a colorful trio of rainbow-themed cards to inspire you!
The new Doodlebug Fairy Garden collection is packed with adorable fairies and pretty rainbows. This inspired me to pull out a couple of my favorite rainbow dies from Simon Says Stamp; the Rainbow Heart and Rainbow Card die sets.
Featuring the Doodlebug Fairy Garden papers, stickers, Doodle-Pops, Shape Sprinkles, and the darling Fairy Garden stamp set, these rainbow cards literally have a magical appearance.
These cards are also SUPER easy to make! Be sure to watch the video to see how you can make some fanciful fairy cards of your own!
