Simon Says Stamp | No-Coloring Floral Birthday Card with Mica Mist. Short Video

Hello, friends! I’m about to start packing for a few weeks long to China for work (leaving sometime next week), but I wanted to get a few blog post ready and in the queue so that my blog doesn’t appear completely deserted. I tend to travel often for both work and pleasure, but usually not longer than for a few days so it’s not typically noticeable on my blog. The upcoming trip is going to be much longer, so I wanted to make sure to get as much done beforehand as I could. Still, I didn’t do it all.

My today’s card is a simple floral project without any coloring. During my trip to Creativeworld show in Frankfurt (watch my video about fun things I got see HERE, best to watch on your phone as video is vertical) I got to see a few new products from Tonic Studios and I was even lucky enough to take a few of them home with me (thank you, Tonic!). One of them is “Mica Mist” – very beautiful pearlescent shimmer spray; I used mine to make a background for this card.

VIDEO TUTORIAL

I have a quick music only video tutorial showing how to make this card from start to finish. Watch it below or on my Facebook page:

CARD DETAILS

I started by spraying a piece of white cardstock, Neenah 110lb, with the Mica Spray in Pecan Peach. It’s a beautiful color that looks stunning on both light and dark surfaces. I showed it on black and kraft papers in my Instagram stories a few days ago, so you might have already seen it in action.

Next, I dried the background using my heat tool. You can let it air dry, but I never have the patience. Once it was completely dry I treated it with anti static powder and stamped beautiful flowers from Simon Says Stamp in clear embossing ink. After coating entire image with Antique Gold embossing powder I heat set it to melt it.

I trimmed my focal panel down to 3 1/2 x 4 3/4″ and next white heat embossed a simple birthday sentiment from the same “Beautiful Flowers” stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. Using fun foam I adhered my panel onto an A2 white side folding card base and embellished it with a few pretty sequins.

Easy? You bet! Pretty? Absolutely! Will I be using this spray again? Yes, and I’m also looking forward to trying other colors.
