SSS Good Vibes Release & Center Cut Geometric Embossed Backgrounds

Hi everyone!

Today is the day! The groovy new Simon Says Stamp Good Vibes Release is now available in store! 

Here is the fabulous full release (with stamps, dies, stencils, watercolor prints, sequins, and acrylic blocks):
Simon sent me a few goodies to play with including their new Center Cut Geometric Pattern Stamp, Vacation Time Stamp Set, and Big Friend Die Set. I'm showcasing these three sets with my cards today.

For this first card, I pink heat embossed the outer part of the Center Cut Geometric Pattern Stamp onto matching cardstock. I then white heat embossed the center piece. I trimmed my stamped panel down and adhered it to a piece of black cardstock. I die cut the outline Big Friend Die from vellum and the detailed Big Friend Die from white cardstock, layered them, and added them to my card. The white heat embossed sentiment is from Simon's new Vacation Time Stamp Set. I finished the card off with some Ranger Black Enamel Accents.

For my second card I heat embossed the outer part of the background with Hero Arts White Satin Pearl Embossing Powder. I love that this embossing powder provides an elegant tone on tone effect. Once again, I white heat embossed the center. I diecut a circle from Simon's Vellum with one of their Nested Circles, added the detailed Big Friend Die and a white embossed sentiment from the Vacation Time Stamp Set. I finished things off with some of Lucy's Cards gorgeous sequins.

This next card was created exactly the same way as the last one except that the sentiment (from Vacation Time) was completely heat embossed. I first heat embossed it with lavender embossing powder before adding demensional details with an embossing pen and white embossing powder.

For my final card today, I heat embossed the background with blue embossing powder. I stamped the center on white cardstock with Simon's Fog Ink and die cut it with one of their Nested Circles. The Congrats! was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and I coloured a couple of the patterned images with a Copic Marker. I adhered this panel to the card with foam adhesive and finished things off with a few more sequins from Lucy's Cards. I'm hoping to make a full card set like this one in a variety of colors and sentiments.
