Simon Says Stamp | Be Bold Release

Hi there!

It’s been a super busy couple of weeks for me – and I have been sick with a nasty spring cold on top of it!  So, I’m popping in quick today to share this sweet and soft card and I hope you’ll grant me a little grace for this <very> short blog post.  It’s been a challenge just getting into my craft studio, so bear with me…

This card features items from the current Simon Says Stamp “Be Bold” release.  I tried something a little different with the background on this card – I used embossing ink on the Lattice Tile stencil, pressed my paper into it, then heat embossed it with a pearl embossing powder.  This technique resulted in a very light embossed image which I think looks fantastic as a background.  

I topped it off with some ink blended die cuts and a shimmery sentiment.

I hope all of you have been able to avoid the Spring colds going around! 

Have a wonderfully creative day!

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!
