Simon Says Stamp – Send Happiness Release Blog Hop Day 2

Hi, Friends!

Welcome to day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Send Happiness Release Blog Hop! The Send Happiness Release is packed full of joyous products to bring smiles to your face. I hope my cards help inspire you to create and send happiness too! If you do, be sure to add your images to the gallery!

My first card features the new Lil’ Critters Boston Terrier – how cute is this little guy?! I die-cut him from brown, white, and black cardstock and pieced him together after ink-blending some Ground Espresso Distress Oxide to the outer edges of his body. After piecing him together, I added blush to his cheeks and some white gel highlights.

I used the Stitched Rectangles and Nested Circles to create a frame for him. I attached this die-cut panel over a piece of rainbow patterned paper using foam adhesive and attached the Boston Terrier in the center with foam adhesive also. To finish, I added sentiment strips from the new Reverse Happy sentiments.

The new Folk Heart Background is so pretty and I stamped it to make an emboss-resist card using Distress Oxide Inks (Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Seedless Preserves).

After ink-blending, I splattered my panel with water and white paint. I trimmed it down to mat my cardbase, then attached the sentiment strips as well as some sequins.

My final card uses the Chunky Flower Mask. I applied the mask over a piece of white cardstock and masked off each flower to ink-blend the full rainbow using Distress Oxide Inks (Abandoned Coral, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Lucky Clover, Mermaid Lagoon, Wilted Violet).

To finish my card, I stamped a sentiment from the So Far So Good stamp set and die-cut it using a Nested Circle – which cut it perfectly right outside the embossed circle. I used the next size up to die-cut another circle from gold glitter cardstock. I adhered each layer with foam adhesive to the ink-blended panel and finished by adhering coordinating jewels to the centers of each flower.

I hope you enjoyed my projects for this release! Check out the full release – supplies are listed below. Thanks for stopping by!
