Simon Says Stamp | STAMPtember | Spiritual Sentiments


Hello Crafty Friends!!!

Are you as EXCITED for STAMPtember as I am?!? Today's post is NOT part of a Blog Hop, it is a Blog Party and everyone is invited! Make sure you stop by the Simon Says Stamp Blog for all the Party Details!


Today's event kicks off the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember month long celebration! You are going to love the new SSS exclusive products showcased today throughout the participating blogs and also throughout the month as Simon shares collaborations with all your favorite companies!

My card today focuses on the newly released Spiritual Sentiments Stamp set. The stamps on this set are so versatile and uplifting, they could be used for so many reasons. Great sentiments stamps to have for those sometimes difficult encouragement cards.

Here is how I made this card:
  • I began by stamping out the foliage stamps from the Spiritual Sentiment set using a green palette of distress oxide inks onto Bristol paper. The larger branches were stamped using two inks, thus creating an ombre ink effect. 
  • Once the background was all stamped out, I then used a damp detail paint brush to color in the leaves by pulling the color from the stamped edges.
  • While the back panel was drying, I worked on the card greeting. I first die cut the smallest stitched rectangle and then stamped out the greeting using Forrest Moss Oxide Ink and a stamping tool.  I also used the little hearts and stamped them out using Fired Brick oxide ink. 
  • Since oxide inks take a while to dry, I sprinkled a clear embossing powder on the greeting and heat set it.  
  • I then glued the sentiment panel to a silver glittered piece of cardstock and trimmed it, leaving a very small border all around the rectangle.
  • Next, I ran the leafy panel through the die cutter using the largest stitched rectangle die, and glued that piece onto an A2 card base, using foam tape to pop it up.
  • I then added the greeting to the leafy panel, again popping it up with foam tape.

To the inside, I stamped these beautiful words.
