Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp Better Together Blog Hop!
The Better Together Release is full of amazing love-themed stamps and dies that work for lots of different occasions. This release celebrates life. Sharing hugs, sharing love, spending time together, giggling, laughing, expressing how much we care for each other are great ways to celebrate our lives. Even though we are often physically far apart from our friends and family, we can connect through words and cards are such a delightful way for us to reach out to one another.
To create my card I stamped the kites from the Soaring For You Stamp Set using SSS Doll Pink Ink, SSS Hot Lips Ink, SSS Schoolhouse Ink and Hero Arts Bubblegum Ink. I stamped the clouds from the Soaring For You Stamp Set using using SSS Sea Glass Ink and the kite strings with SSS Black Ink. I die cut all the images with the coordinating Heart Soars dies.
For the background of my card I applied Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and Salty Ocean Distress Ink to watercolor paper using the Mini Ink Blending Tool. I added water droplets with a paintbrush and let the background air dry. Once dry I stamped the greeting from the Soaring For You Stamp Set using SSS Black Ink.
I adhered all the stamped and die cut images with foam adhesive and rounded the corners with a 1/4" corner rounder.
