Simon Says Stamp - Beautiful Days Release Blog Hop, Day 1



Hi Lovelies!

Welcome to Day 1 of Simon Says Stamp's Beautiful Days Release Blog Hop! Today we a making a contemporary Mother's Day card with a rainbow of cardstock scraps and gorgeous black and white florals.


Confession: I am a paper hoarder, specifically a collector of scraps of solid cardstock. I tuck them away with the confidence that they will be used later on a project, and today we will definitely get that chance using the Five Squares (OR Single Square) Die Set.



I hope that you will enjoy this project but do to explore the Simon Says Stamp Release Gallery to check out so many other goodies from all the other makers!

COLOR PALETTE

I picked a rainbow of scraps from my stash, you can choose your own rainbow or check out one of these great cardstock packs!






 

PROJECT WALKTHROUGH

STAMPING THE BACKGROUND

Stamp the floral images from the Poppy Perfection Stamp set in Intense Black onto the Slimline Card Base.


Tip: Any florals will work here, so choose a similar set from your stash if you have another detailed flower that you prefer.


 


DIE-CUTTING THE SQUARES

Die-cut your rainbow of squares from your stash or recommended cardstock packs using the Five Squares or Single Square Dies.


 

CREATING THE RAINBOW GRAPHIC

Layer your squares in an evenly-spaced diamond-shaped line adhering with Simon Says Stamp DOT RUNNER Tape Adhesive allowing for a sturdy, but repositionable hold.




Adhere foam tape to the back to create dimension when later placed on the card front.


Use a ruler to align and center the diamond rainbow.


 

CREATING THE SENTIMENTS

Trim the "I JUST LOVE YOU" from the Reverse Bold Mom Sentiment Strip and die-cut the MUM die twice out of black and white cardstock.



Use tweezers to position the die-cuts and glue to adhere.



Adhere the sentiment strip using the Tape Runner to finish!


 

Bold black and white florals set the contemporary tone for this card!



A rainbow is always welcome in my craft room!



A card any MUM will love!!!
