Simon Says Stamp | You are Pawesome Valentine

Cards, Love note

Hi everyone. I hope you’re having a fabulous weekend! Thanks so much for dropping by today.

I’m sharing a whimsical valentine’s day card using stamps from Simon Says Stamp. As always, there is a how to video so you can follow along. You can watch the video below, or over on my YouTube channel.

I wanted to create a special love note that didn’t necessarily require a new stamp set. I love using my stamps all through the year, so this was a perfect excuse to pull out the adorable You are Pawesome stamp set.

That’s it for today. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Until next time,

julia

CMCC#49 – Sparkle and Shine

Any occasion, Cards, Challenges, Holiday Card

Grey is my ultimate favorite colour so I was totally jazzed to play along with the Colour Me…! challenge this week.

This week the CMCC#49 is to create a monochromatic project using grey.

For my project, I mostly used materials from my Simon Says Stamp December card kit that arrived this week. Here is my project:

CMCC49-ZedSquared

I stamped the background using Versamark ink and a stamp from the kit onto a piece of slate grey cardstock (also in the kit). Next, I heat embossed using the Ranger Platinum embossing powder and trimmed the background to 4×5¼”.

I set the background aside and stamped the circle outline and Sparkle and Shine sentiment onto a square of the Matte Metallic paper (from the kit) and heat embossed, again using the the Platinum powder. I wasn’t sure how heat embossing would work on the metallic paper but it turned out perfectly. I stamped a small heart and embossed, used a tiny clear foam square to mount it to the sentiment and then trimmed around the circle leaving a thin border.

Using some thin silver thread (tinsel) I created a bushy mess and then adhered my sentiment (with foam tape) over top to hold the thread in place on the background.

To finish the card, I used my Tombow Mono liquid glue to adhere some sequins (some from the kit, some from my stash) and then foam tape to position the panel onto my light grey A2 (5½x4¼”) cardbase.

Thank you so much for dropping by! Make sure to check out my on going Twelve Days of Christmas feature. Have a wonderful week!

I created a YouTube tutorial video for this card. You can check it out below:
