Simon Says Stamp | You’re On My Mind & In My Heart Card

Hello, friends and happy-happy weekend! Today is Independence Day down here in Ukraine and thus our family is on a quick impromptu road trip to celebrate it. While I am away from my craft room, I do have a fresh project to share – created using Simon’s latest stamp set from the September Card Kit called Look For The Rainbows!

CARDS DETAILS

I wanted to create a simple, yet gorgeous background using simple stamping. No masking. No-fuss. I started by treating a panel of Soft Navy cardstock with anti-static powder and stamping the flower that’s lightest on the background in clear embossing ink. Next, alternating between other, smaller flowers and leaves I filled the background with beautiful imagery.

I quickly covered everything with Antique Gold embossing powder and heat set it with my heat tool to melt the powder. Results – gorgeous! You can never beat the look of gold embossing on dark paper.

To spice it up I used a dark blue Copic marker and colored all flowers but one using that dark blue. This helped differentiate the images from the background. For the largest central flower, I used a generous (and I mean VERY generous) amount of shimmer from the Tonic Shimmer Pen.

Finally, I white heat embossed a sentiment, added a strip of gold glitter cardstock and embellished it all with jewels from Tonic (included in September Kit). I love the way it turned out and that sentiment is so thoughtful, fitting for different occasions.

    1. This is GORGEOUS, Yana!!! I DO LIKE this look! My worry is, the Copics with the embossing powder! BUT, I DO LOVE the look! Myself, I would probably color the images–water color. You NEVER leave us without something LOVELY to see here! HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!! And enjoy your time with your family!!! ;)<3

    1. The background is wonderful–with the gold embossing, and just one flower highlighted…..this is very , very pretty. I love it, and hope you love it, too. 🙂

    1. Your card is stunning. Love the rose gold with the different hues of blue.

    1. Happy Independence Day!!!! Hope you have a good trip and enjoy the celebration!! Thanks for sharing this card. I’ve yet to try this idea … one day!!!

    1. Absolutely beautiful card. Such an inspiration. I hope someday to make things that look even nearly as professional as yours do.

    1. Absolutely gorgeous. I agree about the gold embossing on dark paper. It really is stunning.

    1. I love this. It is actually a nice change from coloring images, especially for folks who don’t feel entirely confident about coloring. Monochromatic and simple… the passwords of the times..! With your permission, I would like to use this as a jumping off spot for a project in the class I teach in our local community center. They would love it, too..!

    1. Very beautiful card! I love the colors and it seems so simple. I would never had thought of using red for the sentiment but it works perfectly. Thank you for sharing.
