Simon Says Stamp Fluttering By Release

Hi everyone!

Today is release day for the new Simon Says Stamp Fluttering By Collection!


Here's the full release (including items from the SSS Limited Edition Mother's Day Card Kit released yesterday - the sentiments in the stamp set are beautiful and heartfelt!):



Simon sent me a few goodies to play with and here's what I came up with to share with you today:

This first card is pretty self-explanitory with die cutting Simon's new Stitching Butterflies Dies along with their Picture Book Sky Background Die and Drifting Stitches Borders Dies. I coloured the butterflies with Copic Markers and a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker, adding Glossy Accents to the bodies. The butterflies were added with foam adhesive to give them dimension. The sentiment from Simon's new Messages For Everyday Stamp Set (I LOVE this set!) was white heat embossed on a strip of Simon's Black Cardstock.



For this second card, I used Simon's new Abstract Triangle Stencil, masking off portions and adding Distress Inks with ink blending tools. I only used 3 ink colours: Abandoned Coral, Squeezed Lemonade, and Mermaid Lagoon. I used Prismacolor Pencils to add some depth and die cut the panel with the rectangle from Simon's Bundle of Stitches. I matted the panel with Simon's Island Blue Cardstock and adhered it to a notecard made from Desert Storm Cardstock. I die cut Simon's new Happy Birthday Script Die from Simon's Black Cardstock and added it to the card along with some enamel dots.



That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by!

I really like the 2nd card! Its always so much easier to off-set that sort of thing than trying to put it directly in the middle. And looks cool too :)
