Here’s a pretty nifty bundle from Simon Says Stamp. I really wanted to incorporate the background stamp, but got sidetracked with the other fun details.
First, I made a cloud stencil. I used a die from Lawn Fawn’s Puffy Cloud Borders to cut a piece of cardstock to create a cloud edge. I used that stencil while sponging gradual layers of clouds on white cardstock using Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Faded Jeans and Broken China. I finished the effect with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. I attached the layer on to my black-on-white card base that I had pre-prepped.
Next, I sponged Simon Says Stamp Winter Sky Ink straight on to a piece of white cardstock: I simply turned the ink pad up-side-down and pressed it right on to the card. It created a nice pattern, I thought. I took the SSS Love die and die-cut from that piece and also die-cut a second piece from black cardstock. I glued the two Love cuts together, slightly offset, to create a two-dimensional effect. I attached it to my prepped card base and cloud layer, allowing the sentiment to fall slightly off the layered edge, just for fun. 🙂
Then I stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set in black pigment ink and then heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder on to vellum paper. I used an EK Tools Label Punch to crop the vellum sentiment and mounted it to the card with pop-dots which I snipped into four little piece so they wouldn’t show up under my enamel dots. Then I place the enamel dots to the four corners, covering the tiny pop-dot pieces.
I punched several butterflies with Martha Stewart’s Butterfly Punch and glued them on.
And there it is! 🙂
