Birthday Butterfly - Simon Says Stamp Celebrate You Release BLOG HOP

Good morning! I'm super excited today to be hopping along for Day 1 of a 2 day Blog Hop to celebrate the Fabulous NEW Celebrate You Release from Simon Says Stamp!!! Make sure and check out all the inspiration with this new release AND link up your creations as you receive your orders HERE in the Gallery created just for this release! And check out the graphic below for a coupon code for a free gift through Sunday, May 19th, 2019 as well!!! I used this freebie on THIS set of cards way back in October - so pretty and fun!


Today I'm sharing this soft and simple card using the beautiful new Filigree Butterfly Wafer Die, some Distress Oxides inks, and some Glimmer Paste!


I started off by blending Picked Raspberry and Abandoned Coral ink on a panel of white cardstock, then covering it with a coat of Tonic Moonstone Glimmer Paste. I set that aside to dry thoroughly.


Next, I die cut the beautiful Filigree Butterfly from white cardstock, then cut the panel again with Wonky Rectangles Dies. I stamped my sentiment from the NEW Big Birthday Greetings Stamp Set and the tiny additional sentiment from the previously released Tiny Words Faith underneath.


I added a few super fine black splatters using Pinkfresh Licorice liquid watercolors and a small brush. Once that dried - I layered it over my sparkly ink blending, then adhered the entire thing to a Cotton Candy cardbase! Can you see all the sparkle and shimmer behind the butterfly?


I also have a few other cards on my blog over the past couple of days using items from the new release - you can check out more details on these cards HERE and HERE if you're interested!
