Beautiful Gold Terrarium - Simon Says Stamp Friendly Frolic Release

Hello! Stopping by tonight to let you know there is a BRAND NEW release from Simon Says Stamp called Friendly Frolic that is SOOOO incredibly fun! It is jam packed with fun goodies - make sure and check them all out HERE!

I have a ton of projects to share over the next couple days with the new release items - and will be part of a fun 2 day blog hop that starts on Friday with giveaways at every stop - so make sure and check back then! But first, I thought I'd kick of the release with this card:

This beautiful image is part of a fun new stamp set called Plantiful Puns - which is full of tons of fun "punny" sentiments as the name implies, but also some super lovely images! I used a sentiment from another new set, Sketch Lotus Flowers, to create a simple and elegant card.

I started off by stamping my image on kraft paper with SSS Barely Beige Ink, then coloring with my Polychromos Pencils. Since I used my MISTI to stamp the image, I was able to restamp over the top and heat emboss in gold once it was colored. I used a simple embossing pen and a ruler to draw the line going down to my hanging terrarium, and heat embossed that in gold as well.

Finished off by stamping my sentiment and heat embossing with white, added some distress inking around the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then masked off my image and sentiment with post it tape and added some white paint splatters to finish it off. Here is a closer look at the elegant gold shine on this card:
