Sending Hugs!



Hello friends!  I have a card to share today using products from Simon Says Stamps July Card Kit. 

I am using Simon Says Stamps Blossom Field Embossing Folder, Big Scripty Hugs Wafer die, and You Matter stamp set.  I started with white card stock.  I chose to do the letterpress technique.  I found that my ink is smoother if I use a brayer.  I used Pinkfresh Studio Slumber ink for the background.  I ran the embossing folder through my Gemini Junior per instructions.  I added some splatters using more Slumber Ink and an artist brush.  

I die cut the panel with Waffle Flower A2 die.  I set the background panel to the side to let it dry.  I worked on the sentiment. I ink blended a panel of white card stock using Slumber ink.  I die cut the sentiment.  I layered two "hugs" together and added it to the outline die.  I added some loose white thread to the back and used foam tape to add dimension to the word sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment using the You Matter stamp set with more Slumber ink.  I die cut the sentiment using Honey Bee stamps Sentiment Banner dies. 

I die cut the background panel using Waffle Flowers A2 dies. I used foam tape to add the panel to a top folding white card stock base. I finished the card with a few clear sequins. 


Here is a list of many of the products I generally
use every time I make a card.
