Simon Says Stamp | Count Our Blessings Card

Hello friends, I’ve been very busy during STAMPtember making cards, filming videos and simply having lots of fun with all the new goodies, I hope you’ve been enjoying them too! I’ve shared a ton of projects on my blog during this month, but I still have a lot to share, so I’m hoping you’ll enjoy a few more STAMPtember projects from me over the next few days/weeks.

CARD DETAILS

I started working on this card by heat embossing the “Good Reading” background in Gold Embossing powder onto Distress Watercolor paper. Next, I blended several colors of Distress inks (listing all below in my “Supplies” section) and sprayed the panel with water to activate the ink. I blotted some of the ink off and adhered my panel onto an A2 card base.

To create the focal point of this card I heat embossed a leaf from the Fractile Leaves set in same gold embossing powder onto a sheet of vellum. At the same time I heat embossed a lovely sentiment that reads “The Move We Count Our Blessings The Move We Have To Count” in white embossing powder onto a black cardstock strip.

I foam mounted my sentiment onto the vellum panel and used it to hide the adhesive that was used to affix the vellum panel on the card.

    1. Hi Yana. This is just beautiful too. I have enjoyed seeing what you have shared during Stamptember and would love to see more. This background is gorgeous beneath the vellum and the gold leaves are stunning!

    1. Beautiful card. The sentiment is so powerful, love the way you emphasized it.

    1. Once again, another beautiful card!! Love the colours used in the background. The vellum panel is a nice touch. It adds interest and dimension
