Simon Says - Celebrating You

Hello my friends, I'm sharing a card made with the Celebrating You 6" x 8" stamp set and dies and the Lace Heart die from Simon Says recent Celebrate release. There are so many amazing new products in this release and you can check them all out HERE.

I sprayed Worn Lipstick Distress Spray Stain and Distress Oxide Spray on to the craft mat on my Glass Media Mat, spritzed with water, pressed a 3.3/4" x 5" panel of Distress Watercolor card into the inks, dried and repeatedly tapped back in to pick up the remaining droplets. I die-cut the Simon Says Lace Heart from Distress Watercolor, Vellum and Sizzix Self Adhesive Sheets.
I fixed the outer heart to the panel with Distress Collage Medium, fixed the Sizzix Adhesive Sheet inner heart into the negative space. peeled back the carrier sheet and pressed the vellum heart into place - a handy tip when you don't want the adhesive to show behind vellum.
I inked the sentiment from the Celebrating You 6" x 8" stamp set on to the vellum, inked with Simon Says Intense Black ink.
I stamped the cute critter image from Celebrating You on to a scrap of Strathmore Bristol Smooth card, inked with Simon Says Intense Black ink and coloured using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, Light Pink, Light Carmine, Mid Green and the Blender Marker.
I die-cut the critter using the matching Celebrating You dies and fixed to the panel using foam squares to create dimension. I die-cut the hearts and leaf sprig from the Lace Heart dies, coloured with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and fixed to the panel with Distress Collage Medium.
I used Tonic Studios Aqua Shimmer Pen to add sparkle to the hearts and once dry, applied a coat of Ranger Glossy Accents. To finish I matted the panel on to Simon Says Green Leaf cardstock trimmed 1/8" larger and fixed to a white card blank.

I'll be back tomorrow to share a card I made for a very special event. In the meantime, enjoy your weekend and have fun with whatever you're making. Hugs Kath xxx
