Simon Says Stamp | Dream Big

Hi there!

I’m keeping it really simple today, with some ink smooshing and die cutting…and a fun, bold sentiment.

For this card, I used the Simon Says Stamp “Flower Bundle” die set and the new “Big and Bold” sentiment stamp set.

I started by pressing my chosen Pawsitively Saturated ink colors directly from the ink pad onto my glass matt. I spritzed them with water and then gently pressed my watercolor cardstock into it repeatedly to mix the colors. Here are the colors I used:

Flowers: Guava, Watermelon, and Cherry.
Leaves: Sprout, Pearfection, Field, and Aegean

I set the card stock aside to dry and cut out the floral wrap from a piece of grocery bag and die cut a scalloped and sticked circle out of white to use as a frame.

I heat embossed my sentiment on a piece of black matte cardstock, then cut it out with a circle die.

Once my cardstock was completely dry, I cut out all the pieces for the flowers, assembled them, and then arranged them inside the floral wrap.

I arranged all my pieces on a 4.25 x 4.25 card front – popping the flower bundle and the sentiment up with foam adhesive.

For some extra shimmer, I brushed a bit of “Wink of Stella” over the flowers and used some glittery enamel dots from my stash as flower centers.

I felt like the floral wrap needed a little something and decided to use a bit of twine to tie it together.

I hope you like this project and I really appreciate you stopping by today!

Have a wonderfully creative day, everyone!

designer & content creator

I fell in love with card-making many years ago and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I love trying out new techniques and finding the perfect color combination for whatever I’m creating.

By nature, I am an uber-organizer and a steadfast planner, but as you’ll see, my creations are much more fluid. And while I love color theory, the concept of lights and shadows, and the importance of depth and perspective – these are not things I worry about when it comes to my creations.

I simply find joy in creating and delight in sharing.

I hope that by sharing my cards and other art with you here on my blog I can inspire you to create something you love!
