Hi readers! Happy Sunday! Today’s super cheery trio is brought to you by the talented and sweet Yana Smakula! Enjoy!
Happy Summer everyone! Today I’m sharing several simple cards using a mix of Hero Arts and Simon supplies. You can never have too many simple Hello cards so I decided to use Simon’s new Painted Hello and Hello Sunshine dies for my projects. I started by die cutting a negative Hello on a card base created using Hero Arts Sunshine Layering paper. Because its white on the inside you instantly have two colors on your project – the colored outside and the white inside peeking through the negative die cut. I love this trick!
I stamped several Hibiscus flowers using 2 color combinations to create floral embellishments for my cards and tag. I used Twirling Tutu, Hollyhock and Teeny Bikini for the large pink flower and Duckling, Sunshine and Apricot for the smaller yellow flowers. As for the leaves I chose to use Catkin and Willow. All of these were die cut on my Artisan X-plorer machine using matching dies.
For my Yellow Hello Card I also stamped a Summer definition using a stamp from the Pool Play set and Sunshine ink and added a die cut Sunshine on top. I popped it up using Simon’s Foam tape to create a bit of dimension on this project and dressed my card up using one Hibiscus Flower and a few leaves.
Since I already had several additional stamped and die cut flowers I made another card. I stamped a subtle Woodgrain background using Apricot ink onto a white card base, foam mounted a black Hello Sunshine frame and embellished it using several flowers and leaves. I used a large pink Hibiscus and two yellow flowers for this simple project.
As for the rest of my flowers and the positive Hello that was left from creating the first project I used it on a tag created using Simon’s Large Tag die.
Thanks so much for stopping by!Hope to see you soon!
