Hi Lovelies!

Welcome to Day 2 of Simon Says Stamp's Blog Hop for the Rainbows Release. I am ridiculously thrilled to be invited to inspire you and I hope you like what I have in store!

The full supply list for today's projects is at the bottom of this post, so when you shop for the items you want, remember to use the ENVIES code when you check out so that you can get a FREE* pack of Holographic envelopes with any purchase!!!

Also, our BFF's at Simon Says Stamp are giving away a $25 coupon to every stop on the hop from each blog's comment section.

I know....this is a lot, but it is a special card to celebrate a once-in-a-lifetime moment. So whip out your patience and let's make something beautiful.

There are so many goodies in this release but I am focused today on a few key things for these two cards.

Key Supplies

This is a two-fer project where we put in a bit of effort to color the background stamp and get two cards out of it. So let's get started!

Prepping the Background

  1. Cut the Simon Says Vellum Cardstock down to 5.75" x 5.75"

  2. Rub the Anti-Static Pouch over one side of the vellum and then secure to the inside of the MISTI base or similar stamp positioning tool with a strip low-tack tape. Tip: You can use the tape as a handle for when you are embossing

  3. Ink the stamp with Simon Says Stamp Clear Ink and stamp on the vellum

  4. Dust the inked cardstock with gold embossing powder and heat emboss
