Simon Says Stamp Cherished

Yesterday Simon Says Stamp revealed their latest release – Cherised and it is stunning !

If you haven’t seen the release then I highly encourage you to check it out by clicking the banner below. It’s what I would call a good all round release with lots of different items to suit most crafters.

Cherished Collection from Simon Says Stamp

One of the things of this release is the beautifully detailed stencils that Simon has created, I was lucky to be able to play around with the gorgeous Star Medallion and I was very impressed that for such a detailed stencil it was very sturdy and was beautiful to use.

For my first card I did some inking through the stencil using Clarity Stencil brushes and Simon Says Stamp dye inks (all supplies are listed and linked at the bottom of this post)

I inked straight onto an A2 top folding notecard and moved the stencil around the edges so I only inked part of the stencil each time.

When I was happy I placed the stencil down again and moved it ever so slightly and went in, from the centre out with a contrasting colour, in this case Rose Apple.

I really love the effect this gives and its so easy to achieve.

I die cut a vellum heart and heat embossed a sentiment from Simon’s Loving Heart Stamp set and finished off with some Clear sequins.

For my second card I used some Nuvo Glimmer paste and using a palette knife I spread this through the stencil onto some of Simon’s Fog cardstock.

Once it was dry I cut the piece down and adhered one of the sections onto some black cardstock.

Onto a white A2 card I added some black splatter using Blacksoot Distress Ink and left to dry.

I die cut Simon’s Painted Thanks die twice, once from Black card and then from Fog card and adhered them slightly off centre to give a drop shadow effect.

I then adhered the panel and die cut to the card base and finished off with some sequins.

I really cannot recommend these stencils enough, they are amazing and so beautiful to work with.

Make sure you check out the Simon Says Stamp Blog today for a blog hop for the release.
