Simon Says Stamp | Echoing Thank You Card with Shouting From The Rooftops Set

Hello friends! Today I’m sharing a fun “echoing” Thank You card made using Shouting From The Rooftops stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I have to say – I love this set! So many fun possibilities for cardmaking (plus it works well with other stamp sets, see this post for some ideas).

CARDS DETAILS

I wanted to create a watercolor sky for the mountains, so I made a quick one using my Daniel Smith watercolors. I love the way my sky turned out and how easy it was to make it! It took me less than 2 minutes!

I wet my watercolor paper using clean water and painted a graduated wash using Phthalo Blue color with the help of flat 1″ wide brush. Immediately after I took a paper napkin, crinkled it in my hands and used it to lift up some of the color creating cloud-like marks on my paper. Very easy! I’ll be using this trick again soon for sure.

While my sky background was drying I stamped and colored 2 sets of mountains from the From The Rooftops stamp set from Simon. I stamped them in Intense Black ink and colored with Copics using YG99, YG95 and YG93; I didn’t do any blending and just quickly colored these. Next, I cut my images out right up the edge not leaving a white border (I also colored the edge of the paper with a black marker to make it look finished).

I cut one of the mountain images apart and used it to build depth – I added more mountains behind my front row of images and foam mounted all onto my watercolor sky panel.

I trimmed the sky panel to be as wide as my mountain range  and foam mounted that onto an A2 side folding card base covered with white woodgrain cardstock (did I mention just how much I love this paper?).

I added sentiment saying “Shouting From The Mountain Tops: Thank You, Thank You, Thank You” heat embossed in white on black paper – I foam mounted them for a pop of dimension and finally embellished my card using gold confetti.
