Work of the Heart - Simon Says Stamp Crafty Hugs Release Blog Hop Day 2



Good morning! I'm thrilled this morning to be part of Day 2 of a 2 day Blog Hop to celebrate the Fabulous NEW Crafty Hugs 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!

Today I'm sharing this simple card combining a new die and a sentiment from a new stamp set!


I started off by blending some Abandoned Coral distress ink on some white cardstock to create a background. I then mixed some Barn Door ink with a bit of water to add some splatters over the top.


Once that dried, I added the new die cut Etched Swirl Heart over the top with foam adhesive, pressing up some of the swirl areas to give it more dimension.


Finished off with the sentiment from Work of the Heart, a few Raspberry Jewels, and then mounted the entire panel on a card base created from Cotton Candy cardstock.
