Feel Good Cards, Friendship Cards, Just Because Cards

Grateful For Lattes (And You) | Simon Says Stamp Stamptember 2020 Release

Hi there and happy Stamptember!

The Simon Says Stamp Stamptember release is live and today we’re celebrating with a blog party! Visit the Simon Says Stamp blog to see all of the participants, and read on for a special promo code for an awesome gift with purchase.

My card today is a cute little 3.5″ square card featuring the new Pumpkin Spice Season stamp set. I started off by stamping the two pairs of cup-holding hands in Copic-friendly Hero Arts Intense Black ink onto Neenah Solar White cardstock. I colored one the chunky sweater on the right using BG11, BG13, and BG15 and her hands in E00 and E21. For the sweater on the left I used BG000, BG01, and BG02 and for her hands, E11, E33, and V15. I used RV63 and V15 for their nails and a random selections of browns for the coffee and cream. I cut out the images and set them aside.

For the background I used Wow! Embossing pad to stamp the Circle Doodle background stamp onto a piece of Hero Arts Papaya cardstock. All I wanted here was a tone on tone impression which you can do with watermark/embossing ink, but since I also wanted to emboss the sentiment, I had to wait for the ink to dry (and as you can tell, I didn’t quite wait long enough!). If I did this over again, I’d try a light yellow ink so no embossing powder would still to the background pattern.

After waiting for the embossing ink to dry and treating it with an anti-static powder tool, I heat embossed the sentiment using the same embossing ink and Hero Arts white embossing powder.

To assemble the card, I trimmed my little orange piece down to about 2.5″ square and then used foam tape to mount it to a 3.5″ square card base. Then I added the hands, adding little pieces of foam tape where they hang off the orange panel and using liquid glue to adhere the rest of the images directly to the panel.

Thank you so much for visiting and don’t forget to check out all of the other hop participants. You’ll find different promo codes scattered across the hop for different gifts! The full blog part list can be found on the Simon Says Stamp blog.
