Today sees the Sending Sunshine release from Simon Says Stamp. I know you always enjoy a look at the new products and I do too. I find new supplies so inspiring and they tend to launch me into a creative frenzy with so many new ideas! 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 Sending Sunshine release.
I decided to create a full card shaker using the new Marilyn Full Card die. This is such an easy card to put together, but these shakers sure are a big hit! I started by blending a simple background with Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick and Candied Apple Distress Oxide inks. I kept the deeper colours around the edge of the panel to leave a soft Tattered Rose highlight in the centre. I then splattered the panel with Perfect Pearls, and I also squished the ink pads onto my mat spritzed with water and splattered droplets of colour on the panel too.
For the sentiment, I used the new Playful Messages set and stamped one of the fun sayings in Clear Embossing Ink on Slate card and White heat embossed before trimming to a banner. I also rubbed Worn Lipstick ink onto scrap white card and then die cut three hearts using the Large Holiday Shapes dies and coated them in Glossy Accents. Finally, I cut the Marilyn Full Card die from white card and then I had all the elements ready to put together.
I had such fun creating my shaker mix to match the pinks of the background panel. I got all my sequin supplies out and mixed together Simon Says Stamp Colorful Confetti, Pale Pink, Sweet 16, a variety from Little Things From Lucy’s Cards and finally gems from Studio Katia. I sprinkled these onto the panel, and then I backed the Marilyn Full Card die with acetate, added a layer of foam adhesive strips around the edges and laid it on top of the pink background to create the shaker. I used these adhesive strips which made adding fine lines of foam adhesive around the edges so much easier than having to cut my own skinny strips from wider adhesive.
I’ll be joining in with a blog hop on Friday, and here’s a sneak peek of the project I’ll be sharing using the fun new Summertime die and I have a video for this one.
Also, I’ll be on the Simon blog on Saturday with a video for my Doodling With Debby feature. I have a couple of cards for the post, and in this one, I used the new Hello There cute critters along with the Leafy Frame stencil.
I hope you’ll watch out for these blog posts coming in the next day or so.
Oh my goodness, it’s a busy week for Simon Says Stamp! On Monday, there was the release of the June Card Kit with the gorgeous Beautiful Flowers set. You can find the kit here, and I have a blog post detailing what is included in the kit in case it is sold out, and you want to search out individual items from the kit.
We have the Sending Sunshine release today and then tomorrow and Friday will be two blog hops with lots of inspiration and giveaways so watch out for those!
