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.
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.
