Soft Scandinavian Stenciled Background

Good evening! Stopping by tonight to share the fun news! There is ANOTHER fun new Simon Says Stamp Release that just went live featuring more love and Valentine theme stamps and dies, and appropriately named LOVE! I'm stopping by tonight to share a simple card I put together using the fabulous new stencil - Folk Dance:

My husband and I both come from a Scandinavian Background - his family has lots of Norwegian heritage (he has even visited Norway to see some of his relatives there) and I come from a Swedish background. So...this stencil appealed to me instantly! I used white embossing paste that I tinted with some Candied Apple Distress Ink. It came out softer in color than I anticipated, but I love the pretty results! I smooshed my ink pad on a nonstick mat, then added the embossing paste and mixed until the color was just right.

I added a sentiment from a previous release (and which is now a new favorite) - You Got This. I stamped in Versamark ink on Mint Cardstock, and then heat embossed with Nuvo Shimmering Pearl Embossing Powder - it gives such a beautiful glimmery effect! I adhered that with foam tape over the textured background, then adhered the entire panel to a Cornflower Blue Cardbase. Love the finished soft effect to a traditional color palette!

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