Watercolor Branches Sympathy Card - Simon Says Stamp

Good morning! Sharing a super simple sympathy card that I made this past week using a beautiful die and stamped sentiment from Simon Says Stamp. Since sympathy cards are always hard to make when you need them, I always try to make sure I have some in my stash so they are ready when needed. I love how this simple design works so well with the sentiment on this card.


I started off by die cutting the Clustered Leaves Wafer Die from Watercolor Cardstock - trimming out the center and being left with two different leaf sprigs. I then did some ink smooshing with 3 shades of distress ink on each of them. It's hard to see the variation in the photos, but it adds some great depth with the different colors. The purple leaves used Milled Lavender, Seedless Preserves, and Wilted Violet. The blue uses Weathered Wood, Stormy Sky, and Chipped Sapphire.


Once those dried nice and thoroughly, I planned an arrangement I liked for them on a white cardbase, and carefully adhered them down. I then stamped a simple sentiment from Sketched Flowers Stamp Set - I love the elegant font on this stamp set!

For the Happy Couple - Simon Says Stamp

Good morning! I recently had a request to add a few more wedding cards to my stash of cards, so I pulled out one of my favorite dies from Simon Says Stamp, some distress oxide inks, and a simple sentiment, and put this card together!


I started by blending a trio of distress oxide inks on a panel of white cardstock - I used Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, and Aged Mahogany. I then smeared a coat of Nuvo Blizzard Glitter Drops over the top to add some sparkle, and set that aside to dry.


I die cut the Simon Says Stamp Corbel Heart from another panel of white cardstock, then trimmed it down with the largest Stitched Rectangle Die. Once the other panel dried, I mounted it over the top of the blended distress ink.


Finished off by heat embossing a tiny sentiment from Floral Bliss on a strip of black cardstock trimmed into a banner, then mounted that with foam adhesive over the top. Finally, I mounted that entire panel over a Slate cardbase for extra contrast! Can you see the sparkle in the negative space of the die?
