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.
I started by stamping all of the images in Copic-friendly Altenew Permanent Black Ink onto white cardstock. Next, I colored the images in teals, red, and green. I didn’t do any special shading so this was very quick! I used BG11, BG13, BG15, and BG49 for the wrapping paper, R14 for the reds, and YG03 for the leaves. I cut out the images and set them aside (note that I didn’t have the dies for this set; the dies are available separately or as part of a bundle, and they go the extra mile by cutting out the small open spaces in the ribbon loops!).
Next, I stamped the background in Versafine Clair Morning Mist pigment ink onto an A2-sized panel of white cardstock. I also heat embossed the sentiment, which is from the same stamp set, onto black cardstock using Wow! Embossing Pad and Hero Arts White embossing powder.
I also created a subtle white circle with a vellum frame using two sizes of circle dies. I glued these two circles together and then adhered the gifts, ribbons, decorations, and sentiment using glue and foam tape. Then I adhered the combined piece to the background using more foam tape. To finish, I adhered the card front to a card base.
Thank you so much for visiting!
