Welcome to the ME + SSS Filled With Love Blog Hop!
You should be arriving here from the Simon Says Stamp Blog.
Today we're showcasing the amazingly awesome Mama Elephant exclusive stamp set & dies for Simon Says Stamp, Filled With Love!
Valentine's Day (aka the holiday of love!) is quickly approaching, and we thought it would be fun to have a little blog hop sharing one of the newest Simon Says Stamp releases called Filled With Love.
This stamp and die set is the result of a new partnership between Simon Says Stamp and Mama Elephant and is available exclusively at Simon Says Stamp!
The fun jar and candy images, along with all of the great sentiments, are perfect for creating all of your valentine's cards and sweet treats.
This is an incredible stamp and die set with lots of images and pieces that work together to create one-of-a-kind projects! And you aren't limited to Valentine's Day either. Imagine using the gumballs for a birthday card, the peppermints for a Christmas card and more!
To create the conversation hearts in the jar, I first stamped the jar with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored around the edges with with Copic Marker BG10 Cool Shadow and blended it out (or softened the harsh edges) with 0 Colorless Blender.
Then I masked off the edges of the jar and stamped the conversation hearts using ME Inks. I also stamped several of the hearts on a separate sheet of smooth white cardstock and die cut them with the coordinating die.
I used the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Marker to add some pizazz to the jar topper and I die cut and stamped the small heart to add interest as well. A little Glossy Accents on the small heart really makes the jar lid stand out!
I tied some thin hemp thread around the jar to hang the stamped and die cut tag.
To create the custom plaid background design I used the ME Basic Borders Stamps! I love being able to create my own custom patterned paper to match my projects! I die cut the paper using the ME Femme Frames die and then used the ME Blush, Bubblegum and Apple Inks to create the plaid design.
Here's a look at it finished:
I die cut the vellum from the scalloped Femme Frames Die and layered it over the plaid stamped background. I stamped the greeting directly on the vellum and then following the stitching marks on the underneath piece, I added "stitching lines" to the vellum using a white marker.
I popped up the jar and the background using foam adhesive.
