SIMON SAYS: ANYTHING GOES

Hi there! Today I’m sharing a card I made for the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge, Anything Goes. As usual, the DT projects are gorgeous (check them out here).

I made a clean and simple card for my submission using Altenew’s Bold Blossom stamp and die sets. I first watercoloured the blossom with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens, by scribbling some N.024 Wine Red on the stamp and pulling the colour with a wet paint brush.

I then die cut my front card panel using the coordinating die to create a window, and stamped a sentiment I created using Avery Elle’s Simply Said: You stamp set.

This was a super simple card to put together and I love its simplicity.

SIMON SAYS: SUMMER SUNSHINE

Hi there! Today I’m sharing a card I made for the new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, Summer Sunshine. The DT creations on the blog are splendid, if you haven’t seen them yet head over there now!

For my card I made a simple watercolour sunset using Distress Inks and a technique Jennifer McGuire shared with us recently, block watercolor.

I picked Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick and created a beautiful, sunset-like background to be the focus of my card. Originally it was stamped on a 4×5.5 inches watercolour paper, but I ended up tearing the sides and adhering it to a kraft card base to create a fun look.

I then die cut and gold heat embossed the word hello from the Concord & 9th Double Cut Alphabet, and added that to my background.

I really loved using this technique, I followed Jennifer’s tips and it turned out amazing on the first try so I’ll definitely be doing this again.

I hope you liked my card, thanks for stopping by! 🙂
