Simon Says Stamp – Swoopy Flowers

Hi there friends!

Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp Kisses release blog hop! Today is day 1, so be sure to check out the Simon Says Stamp Blog tomorrow for day 2 for more inspiration! You can also reference the Hugs or Kisses Gallery for all the inspiration for this release!

My card today uses the Swoopy Flowers Stamp, Die, and Stencil! I began by stamping the Swoopy Flowers Stamp images with black pigment ink and embossing them with clear embossing powder over white cardstock. I like to emboss my images before ink-blending to keep the black lines crisp.

Next, I ink-blended the images with Pawsitively Saturated Inks. The Swoopy Flowers Stencil sections off each petal to give them the gradient that you see – fun tri-colored petals! Same for the leaves. There are individual images that don’t have coordinating stencils, so I just lightly ink-blended those. There isn’t a nice change in color like with stencils, but it’s hardly noticeable when I arranged my card. I used the Circle Thin Frames to die cut a ring using new Matte Champagne Cardstock.

For a textured background, I used the Magnetic embossing folder. After arranging my images to create a wreath, I die-cut a sentiment using the new Love Ya Die using Matte Champagne Cardstock and vellum. To finish, I embellished my card with the new Disco Heart Sequin mix (using only the flat confetti from the mix).
