Weekender with Wanda – Hero Arts Summer Release!
Hi crafty pals! It’s Saturday, and that means it’s time for another edition of Weekender with Wanda here on the Simon Says Stamp Blog! Welcome and happy weekend! I think it’s safe to say Happy Summer too since it’s the Memorial Day Holiday Weekend! Hope you have lots of fun things planned. Today I am sharing a really bright and sunny card that reminds me of Summer…. I’m using new products from the Hero Arts 2016 Summer Catalog too. I think that’s the perfect theme for this weekend. We all love Hero Arts, right?
For today’s card I used the fun and fabulous Fancy Fruit Salad Dies and the beautiful “You’re So Lovely” stamp set. Then I paired those with the most perfect Gingham Background Stamp that is a Simon Says Stamp exclusive product. This card reminds me of a picnic!
I started this card by stamping the beautiful Gingham background stamp onto nice, crisp white paper. I used the Mega Rocker Block from Impression Obsession to get a good image. If you haven’t tried that yet, I really recommend it! Then I die cut my strawberries out of red and green papers and trimmed the green to place on top for the leaves. I cut a Stitched Rectangle out of the same white paper and stamped that gorgeous sentiment in black. (Isn’t that sentiment just so perfect?)
I stamped the leaves from the You’re So Lovely stamp set multiple times and cut them out with the matching dies. I wanted to layer them underneath the strawberries so I made a lot of them!
As the final touch for this card, I placed the strawberries on the card using foam squares. Then I used some Pretty Pink Posh droplets and a couple of green enamel dots. Just makes it all look fresh and juicy!
Here is a close up of the strawberries and leaves. I am loving this color combination!
So now I want strawberry shortcake! LOL. It’s one of the best things about summer – strawberry everything! We are lucky enough to have awesome farmers’ markets where I live and we can eat fresh all summer long. I hope you have a fantastic day and I’ll see you back here next weekend!
going to stock up on Ranger for the class
