Sending Love with Simon Says Stamp

February 26, 2020

Happy Wednesday, crafty friends! I hope you are having a good week so far! I wanted to drop in and share a card I made awhile back...but just haven't had a moment to share it. And while technically Valentine's day is over, I think sending love themed cards all year long is a good practice. :)

I've used Simon Says Stamp's Heart to Heart background stamp on this card, and did my drop & spritz technique with Pinkfresh Studio liquid watercolor. I did not do a video for this card, but you can see this technique in older videos HERE and HERE.

I diecut the vellum heart & white letters using the Ornate Love die set. To get the dipped gold look, I put a strip of purple tape across the letters then covered the bottom in embossing ink. I added Gilded embossing powder to the top, then heat set. Then I slowly removed the purple tape to reveal a perfect & clean line! I love how this turned out!

I finished the sentiment with the CZ Design Sentiment Strips Reverse Love, which are SO nice to have on hand. It saves you time from having to stamp & heat emboss! I finished by accenting the card with Pinkfresh Studio Essentials: Crystals mix, which I have been using a lot more lately! They are gem shaped, so they are perfect in shakers. But if you glue them top side down, they make really beautiful accents too!

That is everything I have for you today! If you have any questions about my post today, feel free to leave them in the comments and I will be sure to reply.
Before you move along with your day, I wanted to invite you to follow me on social media. I would love to be crafty friends online!
Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday!
