Born to Sparkle Release Blog Hop

Hi, crafty friends. I’m excited to be part of THIS blog hop celebrating THIS new release from Simon Says Stamp.

So, I’m a big fan of when one technique turns into two cards. Today’s cards are a great example of that…

To create these cards, I inked up my Gel Press with three colors of Distress Oxide ink. I die-cut the coordinating die from the Spring Bouquets stamp set and laid the white die-cut on top of the ink on the gel press. I stamped the remaining ink on a white 5×7 panel. In the white space of the ink panel, I stamped the coordinating image from the Spring Bouquets stamp set. I die-cut the Congrats on the line die from black card stock and added VersaMark on top. I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder to give it lots of shine….

I finished off the design with a sprinkling of black enamel dots.

For the second card…

I adhered the colored die-cut piece from the first card and adhered it to a 5×7 black card base. I die-cut the larger congrats from the same die set as the first card and clear heat embossed it just like the first card. This gives it a glossy embellishment look…

I finished off the design with a sprinkling of pearls.

    Loved your projects but especially the flowered cards using the gel press. That’s a great idea of doing the background stamping and then cutting out the gel press creation. Got to get out my gel press for sure. Thanks for all the inspiration and the great ideas.
