Simon Says Stamp - Blossoms and Butterflies

Hi folks, Simon Says Stamp have just revealed their latest collection Blossoms and Butterflies. You can watch a Walk-Through Video Reveal HERE and then check out and shop for the fabulous exclusive products HERE.
Simon Says very kindly sent me the Floral Mom Frame die from the release to play with...

I'm sharing cards made using this beautiful die and you could say it's three for the price of two.

I die cut the frame which measures 4.1/4" x 5.1/2" from SSS #120 Ultra White Cardstock
I laid the panel on a sheet of SSS #120 Ultra White card, placed in my Splatbox and spritzed with Picked Raspberry, Fossilized Amber and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Sprays. I then spritzed water to oxidise the colours and blotted with kitchen towel.
 and voila...two card panels for the price of one
I matted the panel on to SSS Black Cardstock and fixed to a  4.1/2" x 5.3/4" white card blank using 3D Foam Adhesive
I stamped the sentiments from Simon Says Stamp Beautiful Flowers for all 3 cards, inked with SSS Intense Black on SSS #120 Ultra White or Versamark heat embossed with Ranger Superfine White Embossing Powder on to black card and added Shimmering Ice Fusion Sequins.

I added splatters of White Gesso and coloured the sentiment strip with Picked Raspberry and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxides using a Detailer Brush

For the second card, I trimmed down the negative spritzed panel and matted on to a 4.1/2" x 5.3/4" white card blank.

and added faux stitching using a Sakura Micron Black Pen
For the third card, I die cut another panel and coloured as before with Distress Oxide Sprays. We are more inclined to use "Mum" rather than Mom in the UK, so I performed a little bit of surgery on the die cut before fixing to a 4.1/2" x 5.3/4" white card blank. Again I used a Sakura Micron Black Pen to add faux stitching around the letters and a Sakura Black Jelly Roll Pen to accent the flower centres.

Toodle-oo for now

  3. I love all the cards, the negative one might just be my favourite and I love how you 'doctored' the 'O' to give it a more British feel too - clever! Hugs, Anne xx

  4. Thanks for doctoring that O - mom offends me despite growing up in a largely American community & both kids married to/living there! Brilliant colours for a still glum season:-)
