Simon Says Stamp - June 2022 Card Kit, Happiest Wishes




Hello Lovelies! All the sunny greetings from Simon Says Stamp's Happiest Wishes Card Kit! I made 4 Clean and Simple (CAS) cards for you to give a try.


I leaned heavily on all the pretty patterned paper to create vibrant backgrounds for 3 of the 4 cards and did a little stenciling with the enclosed Stickles Gel to bring on the sunshine for the 4th card.




I didn't even get to use all the items in the kit, because there's so much to play with!

INK-BLENDING

Using the Large Simon Citrine Blending Brush, blend Lemonade and Sherbet inks onto the cardstock as shown below:



STENCILING

Secure the ink blended panel to your surface ( I am using a Wendy Vecchi Make Art Stay-tion) and apply the Stickles Gel using a palette knife.



Create the card base, trim the patterned layer, fussy-cut the sentiments an adhere the patterned strip to the card base.


Pop up fussy-cut sentiments with Foam Tape and adhere to card front.



I first stenciled the Stickles Gel onto white cardstock, but decided that it packed more of a punch with a little ink-blended color!


It's all about the sun for this card!


Some jewels emphasize the sun rays and draw attention to the sunny sentiments.


Be the Sunshine Lovelies!

STAMPING AND LAYERING

I did it backwards here, so I recommend that you stamp the sentiment and stars first BEFORE popping-up the patterned layer with foam tape and adhering to a Mini Slimline card base. I am using a pre-cut and scored on from Simon Says Stamp.



Adhere jewels to finish!



How cute is this little bear???



The rainbow-blended panel is popped up to standout even more against the black-patterned layer.
