Simon Says Stamp You Are Loved Blog Hop


Hi, All ! Welcome to Day 1 of Blog Hop for Simon Says Stamp's You Are Loved Collection. I'm so honored to be part of the blog hop, today. If you have come here from  talented  Heather's Blog, then you are on the right path. Or, you can start your hops from Simon Says Stamp Blog




Today, I'm going to share 3 sets of cards featuring You Are Loved. Here's the first set. 






I started by stamping Quilted Hearts on Cotton Candy Card Stock using Embossing ink, then I heat embossed it using White Embossing Powder Fine Detail. I then trimmed the panel into A2 size,  cut out a heart shape window in the center using Ornate Love Dies.


Next, I made a card base using 110 Neenah White, placed it onto my MISTI, then I stamped Love Messages  making sure that the sentimens would be placed exactly within the heart window. I used previous heart panel as a guiding tool to place sentiments.



In turn, I foam mounted Quilted Hearts panel onto the card base, and embellished my card using ribbon and gemstone.



I made a twin card with same design but different color scheme, for which I used Neenah Texture Navy Card stock instead of pink paper.



Here's the second set which features Moments of Grace set. I love those heartwarming and encourating words included in this stamp set.




I used Beautiful Flowers to make watercolored panel and I colored the images using Watercolor Brush Markers. Then I added splatters of White Acrylic ink over the colored images. I stamped sentimets from Moments of Grace set using Versafine Onyx Black Ink.



Then I foam mounted panels to A2-card base and finished off my cards by adhering Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix and Ballerina Pink Sequins.





Today's last set features  Windows To My Heart Dies set. As a huge fan of shaker cards, I couldn't resist to make them at the first moment I saw thus set. 





For this white card, I used rainbow gradiation of Jewels ( Blush, WaterMelon, Lemon Drop, Aquamarine, Spring Green, and Pansy Purple). 





For coral one, I gave color gradiation from clear to light pink/gold and deep pink/red. I put 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins, Clear Seed Beads, Gold Shimmer Beads, Ballerina Pink and Raspberry sequins into the shakers.


Sentiment from  Love Messages was  heat embossed in white on Schoolhouse Red Cardstock using White Embossing Powder Fine Detail.





That's it from me for today. Thank you so much for your visiting and reading my post.
