Missing You Gate - Simon Says Stamp All the Feels Release

 Hello! Popping by this evening with my first card to share with you using the BRAND NEW Simon Says Stamp All the Feels Release! So many fun new things in this release - but I couldn't wait to use this gorgeous new Garden Gate Die

In 2019 I made my first trips ever to Europe - and this past year or so I so wish I could have gone again. This die totally made me think of one of my favorite things over there in the countries we visited (Norway, France, Italy, and Iceland) - the gorgeous gates (there were the doors as well...but that is another story I suppose...)

I created an ink blended background using Distress Oxides in Wilted Violet, Faded Jeans, Stormy Sky, Dried Marigold, Ripe Persimmon, and Festive Berries. Nothing like ink blending for some relaxing fun, right?

I die cut the gate from black cardstock - I die cut it twice, and layered up just the gate portion for a bit more dimension and a sturdier layer.

Finished off with a sentiment from another of the new sets - Inside Family Messages stamp set. So many great sentiments on this one, but this simple little one was perfect. And since I was thinking of European travel when I made this card, it was even more fitting! :)

Make sure and check out the new release HERE!
