Hi friends! Thanks for stopping by today! Please welcome back Heather Hoffman as a guest designer on our blog! She’s made these adorable “Just because” cards using some NEW Winnie & Walter stamps, along with our Handlettered Encouragement stamps for the sentiments and our Stacked Stars die for a cool background. Read on and enjoy!
Good morning! Heather Hoffman here this morning – and I’m thrilled to be guesting here on the Simon Says Stamp Blog with a couple cards I put together combining some adorable new Winnie and Walter images with some SSS Exclusive Dies and stamps!
For the first card I used Winnie and Walter’s new Welcome to the Family stamp set, colored with Copics, and fussy cut out. To create a fun background I used Simon Says Stamp Stacked Stars Die on a panel of white cardstock but with embossing pads so it didn’t cut entirely through, but just left a fun bit of texture. The sentiment for both cards is from SSS’s new Handlettered Encouragement stamp set, heat embossed in white on a strip of black cardstock die cut with SSS’s Basic Banners dies.
The second card uses another darling Winnie and Walter set – Big Hugs. Both of these sets were illustrated by Evelin T Designs – who I had the joy of meeting at Creativation this year in Phoenis, and is just as sweet as her illustrations! I paired this image with the SSS Stacked Hearts Die, also embossed on the white cardstock. For the ground of both cards I used my SSS A2 Card Curved Edge and some SSS Green Apple Cardstock to create a little hill for them to sit on. I used some varying shades of Warm Gray Copics to color in a shadow on the hilltop for both cards before adhering the images with foam adhesive. This helps “ground” the images a little, and make them look a bit more realistic where they sit!
Finishing touch was adding some May Arts Natural Twine on the banners before adhering them with foam adhesive, and then adding a bit of sparkle with some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Confetti Mix!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!
