Miss You Like Cray | Simon Says Stamp

Hi there, I hope you had a nice weekend!

Today I’m sharing a card using an extra panel that I made a couple of months ago when I was playing with the Simon Says Stamp Peonies and Leaves stencil.

To make the background, I used Pixie Spray to add a bit of tack to the stencil. Then I placed the stencil onto a 8.5″ x 5.5″ panel of white cardstock (this stencil is big!). Next, I lightly sprayed Picked Raspberry and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Spray Stains over the panel. I carefully removed the stencil and misted clean clear water over the side that had Spray Stain on it and then “stamped” that side down onto another panel of white cardstock (the card that resulted from that panel is towards the bottom of this post). I set both panels aside to dry and then cleaned the stencil.

Next, I used both the detail sentiment die and the shadow die from the Miss You die set to cut white cardstock. I kept the sentiment die cut in the paper it was cut from and used Post-it Tape on the back side to temporarily hold it in place. Using blending tools, I blended Wild Honey and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide inks over the sentiment, blending the two colors together where they met. I cut the detail sentiment again from heavy white cardstock and then glued the ink-blended piece over it to create a thicker sentiment which I then glued to the shadow layer.

I stamped the “like cray” stamp from the Love You Like stamp set in Versafine Claire Nocturne ink onto white cardstock and then used a die from the PhotoPlay Sentiment Strips die set to cut it out.

To assemble the card, I trimmed the sprayed background down 3.5″ x 4.75″ and used foam tape to adhere it to a 4.25″ x 5.5″ card base. Then I adhered the sentiments using more foam tape.

And here’s the card I made using the “stamped stencil.” The large sentiment is the CZ Design Love You die.

Thank you so much for visiting!
