Simon Says Stamp - Fun And Festive Release Blog Hop Day 2

Hi, there and welcome to my blog. 
I hope you've come here from Lisa Addesa's blog, or you can start your hop from Simon Says Stamp Blog . 
I'm so honored to be participating in the second day of Simon Says Stamp Fun and Festive Release Blog Hop. 
You can see the whole release at Simon Says Stamp Store.


I

Here's the first one that showcases Winter Scene Stamp set



The little images of Winter Scene Stamp set were stamped on 80lb Neenah White paper and colored with Copic Markers. I used my SCAN N CUT machine to cut the images, but Winter Scene Coordinating Dies are also available at the store.


Then I stamped large rectangle background scene  on a piece of Bristol paper in light greay ink. I used blue dye inks to express winter sky and warm gray copic markers to color the hills. I added white ink pen dots to express snow, then I matted the piece onto Silver Glitter Card Stock.


Next, I made a white panel using Wonky Rectangles Dies from 110 Neenah White paper, stamped sentiments from Winter Scene Stamp set on the bottom. After I foam mounted background piece on the white panel, I adhered small images here and there to create a scene. Card base was made of Schoolhouse Red Card Stock.



As a final touch, I added a snowflake piece from Center Cut Holiday Stamp, and Sparkling Clear Snowflakes.

II

My second card features Big Picture Book Bear Dies and Kadyn Snowflake Die.




I cut Big Picture Book Bear Dies from Ivory Card Stock, and used copic markers to color the diecuts (E59-E57-E55-E53, E51-E50, R20-R30) . I also diecut a Santa's hat from different dies set, colored it with copic markers (E29-R39-R46-R27-R14, W5-W3-W1-W00).



Next, I created a background panel using Blue Dye InksBristol paper, and white acrylic ink, which was then trimmed with Wonky Rectangles Dies.  "Believe" was cut out of the panel and inlaid with dimension by stacking up a couple of more diecuts. Kadyn Snowflakes were cut from  110 Neenah White  and adhered over the panel . Small sentiment from  Winter Scene Stamp  set was heat embosed in white using Bright White Super Fine embossing powder.


 I foam mounted Big Bear onto the panel and adhered the panel on an Ivory card base, and then I finished off the card by adding Sparkling Clear Snowflakes.

III

Lastly, I would love to share a couple of cards featuring Mod Trees Background Stamp which is one of my favorite of the this release :)



The whole process is very simple so you can quickly finish a card or two using the stamp set.  I had created several panels before, by ink-blending of A2 sized pieces of Bristol paper, splattering water, and stampinh Mod Trees Background with similar colors of dye inks using my stamping platform.


I picked three for today's cards and set aside two for future use. Here I'm sharing specific product names and ink colors for each card below the pictures.


Background blending ( MFT cube dye inks -Coral Crush, Peach Bellini, In The Buff), Stamping Mod Tree ( Versamark Embossing Ink,  Pearl Nuvo Glitter Embossing powder --> heat embossed), Stamp (Mod Trees BackgroundStained Glass Greetings), Dies ( Wonky Rectangles Dies Rejoice), Paper ( Schoolhouse Red Card Stock110 Neenah White, Gold Glitter 6×6, Thick Vellum), Sequins ( Metallic Gold Sequins 6mm & 4mm)



Background ( Fog Card Stock ), Mod Trees patterns were heat embossed using White embossing powder, Dies (Wonky Rectangles Dies , Stained Glass Greetings Coordinating Dies), Stamp ( Mod Trees BackgroundStained Glass Greetings), Paper ( Schoolhouse Red Card Stock110 Neenah White), Sequins (  Metallic Gold Sequins 6mm & 4mm, Ivory Jewels)

Laurie said...

Your cards are so cute! Love them all!!

MMA said...

I love the details in all your cards. The glitter silver behind your stamped focal piece and the cutouts on top add to the entire card. Santa Bear is adorable but the added popped ‘Believe’ and added snowflakes make it amazing. Gotta say I was on the fence about the background Mod Trees until I saw what you did. The so not standard Christmas colours made me a believer!

Wow, I love all your cards, but those backgrounds for the last three are STUNNING!!! :)
