Hello there, I hope you’re having a great week!
It’s release day over at Simon Says Stamp! This release’s theme is Rest and Refresh and today I’m sharing a nautical themed card using a new background stamp.
I started by using Wow! Embossing Pad and white Hero Arts embossing powder to heat emboss the Anchors Cling stamp onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock. Then I used foam blending tools to blend Blue Raspberry, Splash, and Blue Hawaii Hero Arts Reactive inks over the panel. When I finished blending, I used a very lightly damp paper towel to remove any ink sitting on top of the embossing and then set the panel aside to let it dry.
I pulled out the Simon Says Stamp Summertime die and die cut a piece of Neenah Solar White. I used the same three ink colors and blended colors over the fall out letters and then I placed the letters back in the positive cut and used thin paper tape to hold them in place.
To assemble the card, I trimmed a bit off both sides of the anchor panel and then adhered it to an A2-sized card base. Then I backed the sentiment die cut with foam tape and adhered it to the panel.
Thank you for visiting!
