Good morning! We’re continuing the DieCember fun with ANOTHER amazing Simon Says Stamp release! You are Loved has some fabulous dies, of course, but also gorgeous and playful stamp sets and pretty embellishment mixes!
I’m sharing two cards with the new release…my first one uses the beautiful Moments of Grace set to create a sympathy card. It’s never fun to need a sympathy card but I prefer creating them in advance because I often don’t have the creative mojo to create one when I need it.
Technically this card doesn’t even have to be a sympathy card. You could keep it as just an elegant ‘thinking of you’ card or you could stamp one of the beautiful sentiments from Moments of Grace on the inside of the card for a sympathy card. Anyway, to start I stamped the gorgeous scripty sentiment on a piece of sea glass cardstock with versamark and heat-embossed it with silver embossing powder. I trimmed a 1/4″ off the side of the panel and adhered it to a white card base.
Next I die-cut the Outline Clustered Leaves from vellum and silver glitter cardstock and cut them apart. I adhered them to the top of the card and then added a few silver jewels to finish the card!
Next we went in a totally different direction for a vibrant and bright Valentine’s Day card! I layered the Heart Layers stencil over a piece of cardstock and applied picked raspberry, abandoned coral, and candied apple distress ink over the larger heart stencils. Then I spritzed it with iridescent shimmer spray and water and blotted off the excess. When it was dry I placed the larger heart stencil over the panel at a slight angle to the larger hearts and applied a thin layer of raspberry rhodolite nuvo glimmer paste. I let that dry completely and then splattered the panel with gold and black paint!
Once it was totally dry I trimmed it down and adhered it to a black panel before adhering that to a white card base. Next I stamped the sentiment from Always and Forever onto black cardstock with versamark and heat-embossed it with gold tinsel embossing powder before die-cutting it with the coordinating dies. I die-cut two more layers with black cardstock and adhered them together to create a thicker sentiment. Then I adhered that to the card. Finally I added a few gold confetti pieces to finish the card! I hope you’ll check out the You Are Loved release!
