Simon Says Stamp | This Card Is Full of Thanks

Happy Saturday, friends! I can’t believe today is the last day of August. It’s so cliche to say, but where has the time went? Last time I blinked, it was still Spring and I was just returning home from my work trip to China. Crazy!

If you’ve been following my recent posts you know I have been on a mission of sorts to make more simple cards to replenish my stash. I have yet another simple card to share today.

CARD DETAILS

Fun fact – I used to not like flowers. Not real flowers, not paper flowers, not any kind of flowers. It’s funny how things change. Now I love the look of beautiful blooms on my handmade cards, and I like real flowers, too. To make this card I used stamps from 2 sets from Simon – Sketched Flowers (for the stunning floral cluster) and Big Thanks Words (for the sentiment).

I colored flowers using the same marker colors I’ve been using for the past few days (RV34, RV11, RV10, RV14, RV13, YG03, YG17, YG67, Y38, Y15, Y11). I stamped two floral clusters – one  at the top and one at the bottom of the panel leaving lots of empty space in the center to house a sentiment.

The main portion of the latter was stamped in black and the sub sentiments were heat embossed in white on Sunshine Yellow cardstock. The main panel was trimmed to 4 1/4 x 5 1/4″ and foam mounted on a Fog card base.

Lastly, as with the previous cards, I couldn’t resist a few small droplets from Pretty Pink Posh. I love the simplicity of this card, I love the bright and cheerful colors, and most of all, I love the sentiment. Enjoy your weekend!

    1. I know what you mean Yana, summer came and went WAY too fast this year! On the bright side, I will be happy to get back to crafting later this fall when the weather cools down and THAT will be something I will be looking forward to.
      Your card is gorgeous. The new products are rather exciting and I am looking forward to getting my hands on a few of these floral’s as I am a HUGE fan of them. Happy to see you are growing to love them too. TFS!

    1. I got into coloring with a coloring book and I HATED coloring flowers. Would skip those pages. Now … all I seem to look for is stamp sets with flowers I can color. Can’t get enough of it sometimes!! It is “funny” isn’t it! Some changes are good and welcomed!! Beautiful colors and I like the bigger sentiment. Looking forward to seeing what’s in the hopper for Stamptember.

    1. Beautiful card as always. As kids I remember we would hold up a daisy to our chins to see if we liked butter. If yellow powder appeared on your chin you did indeed like butter. Just a cute flower memory.

    1. Gorgeous card, Yana. My stamp inventory is full of flowers. While I can’t seem to grow anything, I’m always attracted to the beautiful floral images I see on stamps.

    1. Beautiful layout! I must remember that I don’t have to stamp the whole image of the floral stamp!!! I love this stamp set but get intimidated with how large the image is. This is the perfect way to break it up. Thank you!!!
