Love Cards, Miss You Cards, Thank You Cards

Miss You | Simon Says Stamp Happy And Joyful Release Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

Hi there, I hope you’ve been having a good week!

I’m so excited to be part of day two of the Simon Says Stamp Happy And Joyful release blog hop, and I’m very glad you’re here! If you’ve arrived from Sandi MacIver’s blog, you’re right on track.

I have three cards to share today so I’ll get right to it!

Miss You

My first card features the new Sketched Leaf Branches Foil Hot Foil Plate and Die set. I love this set which includes one large and one small leafy branch. I used the large leafy branch for this card and paired it with the new A2 Marquee die set for a subtle background (this set is sure to become a staple in my stash!) and the Miss You die from a previous release.

To recreate this card:

  1. Use foam blending tools to blend Saltwater Taffy, Wild Honey, and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide inks onto a 4.25″ x 5.5″ panel of white cardstock
  2. Use the Sketched Leaf Branches Foil Hot Foil Plate and gold foil to foil the leaves at one end of the ink-blended panel
  3. Use the coordinating die to cut out the foiled images and then repeat the foiling at the other end of the panel
  4. Use the middle die from the A2 Marquee die set to cut a piece of white cardstock
  5. Trim away each end of the die cut Marquee piece in an arc that matches the arch of the large leafy branch (this isn’t necessary but creates a bit of interest and focus on the leaves)
  6. Glue the branches to the top and bottom of the Marquee piece
  7. Cut the Miss You detail layer from Tonic Gold Pearl Mirror Card Satin Cardstock and glue it to the shadow layer, cut from vellum
  8. Use foam tape to adhere the sentiment to the center of the leafy Marquee piece
  9. Use foam tape to adhere the card front to a card base

Love You Miss You

My next card features the new Lined Background cling stamp and sentiments made with the Love You die and Thinking Of You Sentiment Strips from previous releases.

To recreate this card:

  1. Position the Lined Background cling stamp in a Misti, or other stamping tool, over a 4.25″ x 5.5″ panel of white cardstock
  2. Ink up the bottom of the stamp in Sweets ink, then use a cloth to dab at and soften where the ink ends about a third of the way up the stamp; stamp down
  3. Ink up the middle of the stamp in Guava ink and then use a cloth to soften the top and bottom of the inked up area; stamp down
  4. Repeat, this time using Blush ink at the top of the stamp
  5. Trim 3/8″ off the length and width of the panel and set aside
  6. Die cut the detail layer of the Love You die from white cardstock, three times
  7. Stack and glue the layers together
  8. Die cut the shadow layer of the Love You die from vellum and glue the detail layer onto it
  9. Die cut the small Miss You sentiment from the Thinking Of You Sentiment Strips and glue to the Love You sentiment
  10. Use foam tape to adhere the sentiment to the stamped panel
  11. Use foam tape to adhere the card front to a card base

Thank You

My last card features the new Intricate Rose And Blooms Bouquet Hot Foil Plate and Die set, the new A2 Marquee die set, and the Swoopy Thank You die from a previous release.

To recreate this card:

  1. Use the foil plate and gold foil to foil the floral bouquet onto white cardstock; repeat so you have two bouquets
  2. Use Copic markers to color the bouquets; I used R20, E01, Y21, G20, and BG10 and did not do any special shadowing
  3. Use the coordinating die to cut out the bouquets; set aside
  4. Use the middle die from the A2 Marquee die set to foil a 4.25″ x 5.5″ panel of white cardstock
  5. Use foam tape to adhere the bouquets at opposite corners of the panel, then trim off any excess hanging off the edge of the panel
  6. Use the Swoopy Thank You die to cut Tonic Honey Gold cardstock; cut several more times from white cardstock and then stack and glue the layers together
  7. Glue the sentiment to the card front
  8. Glue the card front to a card base
