Let the Bliss Begin


Hello everyone,
I needed a quick and pretty card for a wedding reception and of course wanted some sparkle and layers and instantly thought of this beautiful stamp set from the Simon Says Stamp card kit from June 2017.  Using the inspiration sheet in the kit I took the idea from Heather Hoffman and stamped the flowers onto water color card stock cut down to 4" x 5 1/4" and then did a messy color wash using Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks.  While that was drying I took a piece of the scripted writing paper in the paper pad and cut it down to 1/2" and then along the left side of the white A2 card base I glued it down flat.  I then took a piece of black card stock and stamped the Congratulations sentiment in Versamark Ink and then used my Nuvo White Glacier embossing powder and heat set onto the strip.


I added my sentiment onto the water colored flower piece and then using the other sentiments in the set stamped those above and below the main sentiment and then popped the whole piece up with fun foam and then lined up the right side with my card base and glued it down.  To finish it off I used Stardust Stickles and using my finger I brushed it over the roses, the centers of the large daisies and the rounded bulb type flowers I water colored in blue.  I love the effect the Stickles gave me on my finished card.
I am entering my card into the Wednesday Simon Says: Sparkle And Shine for April 19th, 2018

See you all soon!
