Hey crafty friends! This month I am the Designer in the Spotlight at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog. Yay! 😄
Are you ready for a new challenge? I sure am! This week’s challenge is Cute. I decided to create a card using the Simon Says Stamp Dog & Cat Dress Up Stamp Set from their brand new Fresh Bloom Collection. Since I don’t own the dies of this stamp set, I decided to get creative with some masking, ink blending AND stenciling! 💛
Make sure to watch the video below to see how I made this cute card.
First, I used Simon Says Stamp Masking Paper Sheets and a circle die from Lawn Fawn to create my mask. Then, I created an ombré effect with the Squeezed Lemonade and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks. I love how smooth and easy it is to create blended backgrounds with these ink pads.
Since I didn’t have the dies of the Simon Says Stamp Dog & Cat Dress Up Stamp Set, I had to get creative with masking paper. I stamped the bow tie and party hat first, covered it up with masking paper and then stamped the dog. When masking, always stamp the images you want on the front first.
After coloring the images, I finished up the card with a bit of sparkle here and there. Like always, I used a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Pen and a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze. Finally, I adhered Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins using the Tonic Nuvo Smooth Precision Glue Pen. 😄
