Simon Says Stamp Sending Sunshine Release Blog Hop

Hello, crafty friends. I’m taking part in a fun blog hop today to celebrate the Sending Sunshine release from Simon Says Stamp. I created two cards using THIS new background die.

I used THESE markers and scribbled them quickly in rainbow order on a piece of THIS paper. I used a paintbrush with water to blend the colors. After it was dry, I die-cut it using THIS new background die. I also cut the same die from a piece of black card stock.

After running it through my die-cutting machine, the pieces stayed in tact because it’s such an intricate die. I used this to my advantage and covered the front of a top folding note card with adhesive. I laid the black outline piece down on the adhesive and then laid the rainbow piece directly on top. I used THIS tool to poke each piece and push it into place directly into the adhesive.

I was left with a beautiful rainbow background and wanted to make a card with it so I adhered it directly to a piece of black card stock using THIS adhesive.

To finish off the cards, I cut two vellum circles to create a focal point for THESE butterflies to sit on. I cut the butterflies out of white card stock so it wouldn’t compete with the colorful backgrounds. I added THIS fun foam underneath for dimension. I also added a white heat embossed sentiment from THIS new stamp set.

Oh, and I added a couple coats of THIS on top of all the black areas on both cards for some sparkle. Check out that shine…

    Love the dual duty of this background die. Two cards for the cut of one is a definite bonus if you have patience to work with the small pieces. Very pretty cards. Thanks for sharing.
