Hey lovelies, I hope you are having a great weekend. The sun is out in full force here today and hubs is in the garden painting our patio fence whilst I am sat here in the cool crafting 🙂
If you didn’t see my post in the week I am sorry that there was no Simon Saturday last weekend, I was poorly and unable to craft.
This week Simon Had its latest release Sending Sunshine. I share a couple of my cards made with one of the new dies and that post can be found here.
Today I am sharing another two cards I created using products from the release. So grab a cuppa and read on.
If you haven’t checked out the latest release from Simon I have listed all the products on my last post. I know some have sold out, but you can sign up to be notified when they are back in stock.
A very pretty and dainty set from the release called Wreath Greetings instantly caught my eye when i received it, It has some beautiful sentiments, but also the image stamps included are beautiful and i knew i wanted to created a very clean and simple design.
I used Tattered Rose Distress Oxide ink and blotting most of it off the blending tool i lightly built up the layers making sure to try and get that soft blend.
Once that was done I heat embossed the main wreath stamp from the sent using Simon’s White Fine Detail embossing powder, I used one of my Arteza Brush Pens (review coming soon) to add some darker color to the little buds and heat embossed the sentiment in the centre using Simon’s Rose Gold Embossing powder.
I was going to mount this onto a white card base but decided to go with a light grey one instead and like how it turned out.
As you can see there is lots of wreath style elements in the stamp set, I really like this set and can see it being used all year round.
This is a lovely stencil, but I would advise using a repositionable adhesive with it, I didn’t and did end up with some bleeding of ink…I kinda like how it turned out, but if you want nice crisp finish id certainly go with the repositionable adhesive.
I was going for a sunset type blend with my oxides…not sure if i achieved it, but I still like the result. I added some water splatter and once dry I die cut using Simon’s Wonky Rectangle Die and stamped the sentiment using Simon’s Black ink.
To finish off I added some Droplets from Studio Katia and adhered to a top folding A2 card.
How fantastic is that sentiment ? I really love this sentiment and it is so true !
Simon Is having a 2 day blog hop to celebrate this release which you can check out here.
I have plenty of other cards planned with items from this release 🙂 so keep your eyes peeled.
