Simon Says Stamp - Fine Floral Stem Friendship Card & NEW Yellow Inks


Red embossed Christmas Card with All The Joy sentiment.

Hello Lovelies! I was so happy that Simon Says Stamp added more yellows to their Pawsitively Saturated ink line that I wanted to make a card just to celebrate them!


Years ago and I don't remember where, I saw some beautiful dishes that had an intricate white floral pattern against a warm yellow background. In making today's card, I was completely inspired to try to replicate that and was honestly pretty tickled with how it came out so I hope you like it too.

INK SWATCHES


I am a fan of SO many colors but I have been really hoping we would get some more yellows in the Pawsitively Saturated Ink Line, so I was estactic to see these in my goodie box. Yellows represent cheerfulness and hope to me and they bring light and comfort to any space that I am in!


This trio showcases warmer and somehow "softer" yellows than the original yellows, Trio 3. Both have a place in my card-making and I love having the flexibility to choose, the right tone for a particular project.


Seeing them together like this is great for understanding how they compare!



I also wanted to share the individual swatches for you to get a better sense of them.





 

CARD WALKTHROUGH


INK-BLENDING

  1. Secure a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of white cardstock to your craft mat or Stamp and Stencil Mat.

  2. Using a blending brush, apply and blend the Butter, Zest, Honey inks onto the cardstock starting with the lightest and continuing to the darkest.





DIE-CUTTING & TRIMMING

  1. Die-cut the Fine Floral Stem flowers twice.

  2. Trim the sentiment into a white strip.

  3. Layer and arrange the die-cuts on the background until you are satisfied with their placement, cover with Glad Press and Seal film to hold your die-cuts in place.

  4. Carefully lift up the film so the diecuts remain adhered to it and flip it over to reveal the back side of the die-cuts.

  5. Apply craft glue to the back of the die-cuts and then flip over, position above the background until it's correctly aligned and then press the die-cuts into place so they adhere to the background

  6. Use foam tape to adhere the sentiment strip over the stems of the flowers as shown.





 


These colors literally melt into one another!





Sentiment strips make card-making really easy, especially if you are often pressed for time.

I love it that these flowers are just as beautiful unadorned as they do if you color them!

I called this a friendship card, but can also be right for other loved ones.

This easy card does not need a lot of explanation but I hope the close-ups of the swatches were helpful if you are thinking about adding these inks to your collection.

I love that Simon Says Stamp is adding to their Pawsitively Saturated colors. Do you plan on adding all the new colors to your previous swatches? I followed your previous post to put mine in "rainbow" order and am not really sure where the new colors would fit in. Thanks so much!
