Simon Says Stamp Leafy Circle Cards…

Hi everyone! WOWzer it’s a hot day in May for IA!  93˚!  eek!  So I’m inside writing a blog post.  I wanted to go on a walk but not if it means melting!

My cards today feature Simon Says Stamp’s new Leafy Circle die.  It’s from the latest fabulous release called ‘Sending Sunshine’.

What I did…I die cut a piece of 110# Neenah Solar White cardstock with SSS Stitch Frame die.  Then instead of cutting the die in the panel, I embossed it using the tan mat, shims and the multi purpose platform in my Big Shot like you would do an embossing folder.

Using the ink blending tools and 3 Distress ink colors, Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint, I added color.  I thought it was so cool, I did the same technique (embossing/inking) for my next card but added a kraft color panel with the Leafy Circle cut in it over the top of the ink blended piece.  whew… run on sentence.

Hey, talking about inks made me remember this… 25% off Ranger right now at SSS, use code RANGER25

 

I stamped the sentiment on vellum with Ranger Archival ink, trimmed it and used the Glue Dots Vellum adhesive on the back, just gotta tell you, that worked slick.   Then I stamped explore nature on the white panel with the same ink.  Stamping for both using the MISTI.

 

I matted the white panel with a green rectangle die cut from the Memory Box Rectangle Basics set.  I love that teeny border.  Mounting tape on the back of that and placed on a top folded kraft color cardbase that I edged with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and a mini ink blending tool.

Next card…same wreath but I CASEd myself…brought back that Meadow Flower… can’t get enough of it I guess!


This time I ink blended with Peeled Paint and Forest Moss Distress Inks.  Colored the flower head with Copics and added three Nuvo White drops. I used mounting tape behind the flower, the flower stem leaves and the sending die cut.

Both of these cards are A2 size and good for snail mail!

  1. I sure do love both of these cards! Just give me anything leafy or botanical. Brilliant to add the flower on the second card. The leaves are a perfect match and it’s a beautiful composition. So, you’ve found the perfect vellum adhesive? I might use more vellum if it wasn’t so tricky to adhere. I’d wilt in that heat! Sunny here today, but I’m hoping the wind doesn’t make it uncomfortable to stand out there and water the garden. Takes all the enjoyment out of it.

  2. Your wreath cards are so gorgeous, Pam! Love how you dry embossed the die and colored it. Peeled paint is one of my favorite colors. Thank you for shsring such beautiful inspiration with us at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!
