Hi friends! I am back with another project using some of the new goodies from the Smitten release from Simon Says Stamp. I am trying to switch my brain out of Christmas mode (which is really difficult for me!), and the pretty, graphic flowers and bold sentiment sets from the Smitten release are a great palette cleanser! I pulled out the new Flower Burst Cling and some pretty, springy inks and created this simple card. Let’s get started with the details!
I began my card by embossing the new Flower Burst Cling onto some Hammermill white cardstock using White Satin Pearl embossing powder. This embossing powder has just the slightest pearlescent sheen to it, making it a little bit fancier than typical white embossing powder. I used Blending Brushes to blend Carnation and Lilac Pawsitively Saturated inks around the edge of the card, then blended Orchid ink around the edge of the embossed panel to create a vivid and colorful background!
For the greeting, I used the new Be Mine Glitter Pack to die cut the Stacked Love You die. I cut the individual letters, then flipped them over and used a piece of washi tape and my gridded mat to line them up in a neat line, placing the glitter side down on the sticky side of the washi tape. I added some small piece of foam adhesive while they were still stuck to the washi tape so that it was easy to adhere the die cuts to the embossed and blended panel in a straight line. Once I had placed my glitter die cut sentiment in the center of the blended panel, I trimmed down a greeting from the new All the Love Sentiment Cards and popped it up with more foam adhesive.
To add some extra sparkle to this card, I added some shimmering purple gems to the center of some of the flowers. I used a pickup stick to make it super easy to add the gems in precisely the right spot!
Well, that’s all for my project today. I am trying to get back into the swing of things after the craziness of the holidays. It’s so weird to try to have a “normal” schedule with everybody home from school and work and family events to attend. Sometimes it’s nice to get back to the regular routine! Thanks so much for stopping by today, and have a marvelous day!
