There’s a new release in town! The new Love release from Simon Says Stamp is inspired by the upcoming season of love as well as images and sentiments that can be used all year round too. I’ve linked all supplies at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used.
Let’s take a look at what’s in the new Love release.
I must admit the snowy winter weather we’ve been having recently made it very tricky for me to get a photograph of all the sparkle on this card! Both the gorgeous Folk Dance Stencil and Streaming Heart are all glittery, but I’m getting ahead of myself slightly in the excitement. I started with the gorgeous Folk Dance Stencil, taped it down to a piece of Neenah Solar White card and blended Scuba, Spring Rain and Mint inks in a gradient. Keeping the stencil in place, I used a palette knife to sweep Nuvo Glimmer Paste over the ink blending. Lifting the stencil was truly a sparkly delight for the eyes!
I set the background to one side to dry while I worked on the focal point. I blended the same trio of inks onto a piece of white card and again spread with a thin layer of Glimmer Paste. Then when dry, I die cut the Streaming Heart die and attached it with foam adhesive to the background panel, trimming off the overhand.
For the sentiment, I die cut the Here For You die several times from white card, sprayed them with 3M spray mount and stacked one on top of the other to form a dimensional and sturdy sentiment. I’ve tried other spray adhesives before and not got on with them – too gloopy, but I thought I’d try again and as I trust 3M’s quality (I use their foam adhesive all the time), I thought I’d give them a go, and I have to say the difference is huge! There will be a lot more stacked sentiments coming from me now LOL.
I adhered the sentiment to the Streaming Heart, following the lines of the heart to angle the direction of the sentiment. I then embellished with a couple of white hearts cut using the Cupid’s Heart Border die and a few Purely Peppermint sequins. I foam mounted the finished panel to a white card base and then dug around to find the perfect matching Mint envelope to go with the card.
