You’re So Special To Me – Simon Says Stamp June 2014 Card Kit

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card using the supplies from the Simon Says Stamp June 2014 Card Kit. I love this kit because I love working with flowers and this set has very unique flower shapes.

This card is also an entry for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

The theme for this challenge is ANYTHING GOES.

Here is my card —

You're So Special To Me SSSCK

 

I started this card with Neenah Solar White cut and folded to a landscape standard size card. I covered the entire front of the card base with a patterned paper from the Now and Then collection from My Mind’s Eye. For the front panel, I cut another piece of Neenah Solar White to 5 x 3 3/4 inches. I stamped a sentiment from the Year Round Sentiments from Hero Arts with black pigment ink from ColorBox and clear embossing powder. As much as I love the images in the set, I’m not too fond of the sentiments because I think they are quite small. I like bigger and bold sentiments. For the images, I stamped 3 solid flower backgrounds in assorted Hero Arts inks and then white embossed the scribbles that go on top. I also did the same for the leaves. For the stem, I used the fine tip of the Tim Holtz Distress Marker in Vintage Photo. I also accented the centers of the flowers with the Now and Then enamel dots from My Mind’s Eye in contrasting colors.

To finish the card, I attached the panel to the card base with foam tape and accented the panel further with some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

That’s it for the card. I made a video showing the step by step process in making the card. You can watch it here or on You Tube. I also have the complete supply list below.

 

 

Thanks for watching! See you soon for another card.
