Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp Hey Love Blog Hop!
Happy Friyay! Today we are celebrating the new Hey Love Release. I used several of the new stamps and dies from the release for this set of three cards I'm sharing here today. I created a set of three embossed resist cards using the new Emma Background Stamp, Elizabeth Background Stamp, Love Is Background Stamp, Love Stamp Set, Love Dies, and Happy Valentine's Day Die as well as a few older Simon Says Stamp products. Candied Apple and Dried Marigold Distress Inks is my favorite color combination for love-themed cards.
I stamped the Emma Background Stamp and the Elizabeth Background Stamp on Bristol Smooth Cardstock using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Simon Says Stamp Clear Embossing Powder. I applied Candied Apple and Dried Marigold Distress Inks over the design for the embossed resist look. I buffed the excess ink off the embossed areas with a dry paper towel. I inked up the Love Is Background Stamp with both the Candied Apple and Dried Marigold Distress Inks and stamped the text over the embossed resist background. I spritzed the background with water from a Distress Sprayer and then blotted the water dry with a paper towel.
I applied Stick It to both sides of a piece of Fun Foam and then adhered gold metallic cardstock to one side. I die cut the Love Die and the Mini Hearts from the dimensional material and adhered them to the card as shown. I love creating my own dimensional stickers and I love how the gold metallic looks with the soft peachy-pink combination of Distress Inks.
I die cut banners from vellum using Basic Banners Dies. I stamped greetings from the Love Stamp Set on the banners using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I adhered the banners to the cards as shown, hiding liquid adhesive behind the embossed areas on the banners.
I adhered foam adhesive on the back of the panels, leaving a small space to wrap some thin twine around the card panel and tie in a bow on the front of each card. I secured the knot on each with a dab of Glossy Accents.
I finished each card with a scattering of Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear 6mm and 4mm sequins.
To mix it up a bit, I changed the dimensional greeting on my last card and used the awesome Happy Valentine's Day Die.
