Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp Sending Sunshine Release Blog Hop!
Today I'm sharing a set of four cards featuring several new stamp sets from the newest release. Every card features stamping/inking and no die cutting! Simple designs that showcase the adorable critters from the Hello There Stamp Set, punny fun greetings from the Playful Messages Stamp Set, and an amazing background with the Deco Diamonds background stamp!
The embossed resist backgrounds are the perfect simple, yet colorful and interesting backdrop for the stamped strips each featuring a critter and lots of greetings!
Smooth white cardstock was trimmed into 2 1/4" x 5 1/2" and stamped with a critter/greetings from the Hello There Stamp Set and whimsical greetings from the Playful Messages Stamp Set. The images were colored in with Copic Markers. Detail was added to the noses with Glossy Accents and the eyes were embellished with white and black gel pens.
Each strip was adhered to a black cardstock strip measuring 2 1/2" x 5 1/2".
The Deco Diamonds background stamp was stamped on Bristol Smooth Cardstock with embossing ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Wild Honey and Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide Inks were applied over the embossed backgrounds for embossed resist. The extra ink was wiped away with a dry paper towel.
Each matted strip was adhered over a background as shown.
