Just Because Cards, Summer Cards



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.

Simon Says Stamp Rest and RefreshI 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!
