Hi friends! Happy Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by today! I am so pleased to welcome back Amy Lee as a guest on our blog! She combined some Simon Says Stamp exclusives for a very fun and cute card idea! Read on for more information and enjoy!
Hello crafty friends! It’s been a while since the last time I guested for Simon. I’m very happy to be back today!
My card today is my usual cheerful vibe with cute images! I have missed crafting with cute critters. Simon’s Funny Food Stamp Set just cracked me up and I couldn’t resist using it. It is so perfect for funny and cute cards like this!
First off, I took a SSS Schoolhouse Red Cardstock and trimmed it into A2 size using my paper trimmer.
Then, I broke the card into three sections by die cutting with Pretty Pink Posh’s Stitched Pieces die. To jazz it up even more, I laid the SSS Mosaic Stars Stencil on the card, pressed Versamark embossing ink on it and white heat embossed the star pattern. Now, it’s starting to look like a food party!
I stamped the images from the Funny Foods Stamp Set with MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink, colored with watercolors and die cut out with Funny Foods Die Set. For the sentiment, I replicated the “Ohh La La” sentiment on the stamp set with the super cute Game Tiles Letters Stamp Set. To tie in the watercolor theme, I splattered some white watercolors onto the background using the Gansai Tambi white paint. You can also use white acrylic paint.
Finally, I mounted everything together on a Neenah Solar White Card Base with foam tape. As a finishing touch, I filled in the eyes of the critters with a 0.03 Black Copic Multiliner to make them pop.
That’s it for today! Thank you for having me and I hope you have a wonderful day! ?
