Simon Says Stamp | Bohemian Lace – Like Backgrounds. Thank You Cards. Video. Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hi everyone! I love to use lace-like stamps for my cards because they always add beautiful and effortless elegance to my projects. So when I saw the new Bohemian Lace background stamp from Simon Says Stamp from their Sending Sunshine release I immediately wanted to play with it.

CARDS DETAILS

I decided I’d try doing tone on tone stamping and also some heat embossing to make beautiful backgrounds for my cards. If you are a subscriber of my Youtube channel & blog and have been following my videos lately you might notice a pattern – I’m doing a lot of monochromatic tone on tone stamping and simple heat embossing these days. I just can’t help it – I love the look, I love the simplicity and and I adore end results.

I used several colors of cardstock for my card – I just pulled a few colors from my stash and did watermark stamping, detail clear and detail white heat embossing. I used Sunshine, Sea Glass, Soft Navy cardstock from Simon as well as Desert Storm by Neenah.

I was in need of thank You cards to I turned all of these backgrounds into quick and pretty much identical Thanks You. I used a stamp from the Big Thanks Words clear stamp set and heat embossed it in white onto coordinating color of cardstock. I didn’t have any Soft Navy cardstock left, so for that one I stamped it in Doll Pink onto white, but it doesn’t look quite as pretty when heat embossed in white.

Next, I used a coordinating die and cut the Thanks Word out in my Spellbinders Platinum die cutting machine.

I also used the same die to die-cut foam adhesive layer for my die cuts. Whenever I can I like to use fun foam and double sided sticky sheets to die-cut identical shapes out and use those shapes to foam mount my die cuts onto the card, especially word die cuts. Some people like to die cut them out of cardstock several times and glue cardstock die cuts together, I prefer to use fun foam instead.

I also stamped and heat embossed an identical sub sentiment for all of my cards and it reads “And Gratitude For All You do” so together with the “Thanks” it forms a one meaningful sentiment. I cut it into a skinny strip and foam mounted onto the card under the large Thanks.

Finally, I wanted to add some additional texture and dimension to my cards so I used Nuvo Drops in various colors and I just added lots of little dots onto my background following the pattern of the lace. I used Carnation Pink, White and Bubblegum Blush.

I love using my Nuvo Drops like this – they really help my backgrounds come to life and whats awesome about the drops is that I can make them in any size I like – they can be as small or as large as I want them to be.
