New Feature! Doodling with Debby

Hi friends! Today we’re launching a brand new monthly series with the delightful and talented Debby Hughes! Read on for the full project and enjoy!


Hello it’s Debby here today with a new feature for 2017; Doodling With Debby! Over the last few years I’ve had a Creative Uses feature each month on the Simon Says Stamp blog where I stretched my supplies. I’m delighted that in 2017 I’ll still be popping in here every month, this time with the new Doodling With Debby feature. Each month may vary as to the focus of the blog post; it may be looking at products from a new Simon Says Stamp release, looking back at a previously released product or highlighting a technique. I’m so excited to continue my monthly video series with Simon.


So lets jump straight in with this layered Valentine’s die cuts card using several products from the new Hey Love release. As soon as I saw the Emma Background stamp I knew I wanted to white heat emboss it off the edge of a panel … so I did LOL! I chose one of my favorite color palettes – Simon Says Stamp Rosie Cheeks and Melon inks and blended them over the heat embossing before splattering the panel with a solution of Perfect Pearls.


Moving on to the die cuts and I cut the Love, Clipping Heart and a Nested Heart from white card. However, although I loved all the white on white I did feel the Love die cut got a little lost so I cut it again from a scrap of card blended with the Melon and Rosie Cheeks inks again. This time the Love word popped nicely off the other die cuts.


I also stamped the heart from Love & Quotes in Teeny Bikini ink and die cut it with a Nested Heart. Lastly on the die cutting, I cut the ink blended Emma Background panel with a Stitched Rectangle. With everything now ready I layered the die cuts on top of one another, using foam adhesive for the hearts and Ranger Multi Medium Matte for the more delicate Love and Clipping Heart die cuts. I also adhered the ink blended Love die cut over the white one I cut originally to give more dimension. Finally I added a few sequins to finish and mounted the panel on a side folding white A2 card base.
