Hooray!! The Fluttering By release from Simon Says Stamp is live and it’s fabulous! The release is filled with all sorts of fun products for Mother’s Day, graduates, friends, floral lovers, aquatic critters lovers, stencil lovers…basically everyone! 😉
I have lots to share over the next few weeks but I thought I’d pop in with a quick card to celebrate the new release!
I created this kinda moody thanks card using the GORGEOUS new Heart Mandala die! You’ve seen this as a stencil and now it’s available as a stunning die! This die cuts like a dream…one flick of my finger and all the little extra pieces easily popped out! And that’s a total win for me!
Anyway, I started by blending stream, silver mixative, pitch black, and slate grey alcohol inks onto a piece of yupo paper and used alcohol blending solution and an air puffer to move them around. Once I was happy I set it aside to dry and die-cut the Heart Mandala with black cardstock. At the same time I also die-cut the Big Thanks word die from black cardstock and the word outline die from black glitter paper.
Once the alcohol ink was dry I used liquid adhesive to adhere the stencil and sentiment to the alcohol ink panel. Then I trimmed the alcohol ink panel down and matted it on a A2 black panel which was then adhered to a card base! I finished the card with a few silver and black gems for a little sparkle. I ran out of time this weekend but I think I’m going to try this design in different color palettes…I think it’d be equally interesting in pinks and golds with white cardstock or coral and grey with black cardstock! Hmm…
