Simon Says Stamp - HEARTS IN A HEART Galentine Card


Red embossed Christmas Card with All The Joy sentiment.

Hello Lovelies! Of course my first card from Simon Says Stamp's Smitten Release is a stenciling card! I can go do a stenciling rabbit hole VERY easily in my craftroom


You'll have to admit that the Hearts In A Heart Stencils are pretty hard to resist though, I love the roundness of the large heart, it makes it all the more cuter somehow.

CARD WALKTHROUGH

STENCILING

  1. Secure a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of 100lb Neenah Solar White Cardstock to the Stamp and Stencil Mat.

  2. Align the large heart stencil from the Hearts In A Heart Stencil Set over the cardstock and using a Large Blending Brush and the Flannel Ink Pad apply color gently through the opening in the stencil

  3. Once complete, replace the stencil with one of the other stencil layers that have multiple hearts and use a small brush, inked from the Cheeky ink pad to blend color though the openings in the stencil. You can blend just a little peony into sections of your cheeky hearts to create a gradient.

  4. Repeat this process until you have used each of the stencil layers and inks


DOTTING

  1. Dip the rounded ball point of your Place And Score Embellishment Wand into a pea-sized amount of Picket Fence Disress Paint and use it to dot the grey background of your large heart as shown.





INK-BLENDING SENTIMENT STRIPS

  1. Trim your selected All The Love Sentiment Strips

  2. Use a small ink brush and the Bubblegum, Peony, Cheeky, Tidepool and Limelicious inks to color them



 

FINISHING

  1. Adhere the sentiment strips to the card front

  2. Add foam tape to the back of the card front

  3. Adhere the card front to a Fog card base

  4. Adheresequins from the Be Mine Embellishment Mix to the card front to finish



 

I hope you like the dots, because I have I feeling I'll be doing more of this!
