Have Hope - Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember 2021 Release

 Hello! It's time for the start of this years STAMPtember at Simon Says Stamp - and you know it always kicks off with a GIGANTIC release, and this year is no exception! So many fun new things to check out with this release - you can check it all out HERE!

I'm kicking off tonight by sharing this simple card with lots of texture and white space - and the perfect pop of colors! Ironically, it doesn't have much stamping - just the sentiment! :)

I started off by die cutting the beautiful new Etched Layered Daisy Stem die - I love that it is in 3 pieces, so it's easy to die cut in different colors of cardstock! I used Lemon Chiffon and Banana cardstock for the two flower layers (a bit hard to see the color variation in the photos!) - and Green Apple cardstock for the stem/leaf combo.

Next up, I used the Triangle Burst Embossing folder on white cardstock to add a textured background. I trimmed that panel down, and backed it with a mat of Simon Says Stamp vellum for a subtle bit of texture between the front frame and the cardbase. It just gave it a touch of extra interest and dimension!

Finally, I adhered the flower pieces with liquid glue - adding just a bit to the center of the flower, so the petals can float free for extra dimension. I added some Nuvo Glitter drops to the center of the flower, and a few sparkly Sunshine jewels from Pinkfresh Studio. Finally, I stamped a sentiment from another new set - Printmaking Florals - trimmed it into a strip, then hand trimmed it into a banner shape and adhered it with foam adhesive.

Product links are all below - including affiliate links where possible, which simply means that if you use one of the links below, I receive a small commission at no additional cost to you. Thanks so much for supporting my blog, and stopping by! Have a wonderful day!!!
