Wildflower Silhouette Cards - Simon Says Stamp Rest and Refresh Release

Good evening! I'm super excited tonight to be stopping by sharing a set of cards that I created using some items from the BRAND NEW Rest and Refresh Release from Simon Says Stamp! I have lots more to share - make sure and stop by here again Friday for Day 1 of the Blog Hop to celebrate the release - as always, tons of inspiration and giveaways to be found along the hop!

Tonight I'm sharing this set of cards I created using the gorgeous NEW Wildflowers Stamp Set - this set was just begging to be used as crisp silhouettes on ink blended backgrounds, and who was I to resist?!?!?

Creating blended backgrounds with Distress Inks is one of my favorite ways to relax and de-stress - there is just something about the process that I love. The beautiful backgrounds afterwards is definitely an added bonus of that process! After that, it was a simple matter of using this beautiful stamp to add my images over the top. Let's take a closer look, shall we?

This blended background was created using Tattered Rose and Stormy Sky, and there are a few Pink Blush Jewels on here to add some sparkle.

This second one uses Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean, and a few Cornflower Jewels. These first two cards also use the narrower wildflower border to match their horizontal orientation.

This card uses 3 colors of ink - Wild Honey, Wilted Violet, and Chipped Sapphire - finished off with a few Marigold Jewels.

And finally, Squeezed Lemonade, Dried Marigold, and Abandoned Coral with some Raspberry Jewels round out this set of 4. These final two cards use the wider wildflower border which fit perfectly with their vertical design.

After I added the ink blending to these panels, I also added a generous splatter on each of them with some Perfect Pearls mixed with a bit of water. I set them aside to dry, then trimmed each of the panels down slightly, and matted each one with a slightly smaller piece of Gold Glitter Cardstock before mounting on white cardbases.

I finished off with sentiments from the NEW Your Light Stamp Set, heat embossed in gold on strips of black cardstock - then mounted with foam adhesive over these panels. I thought these messages were a perfect fit over these decorative panels!
