Be sure to check out the amazing gallery full of amazing ideas for this Simon Says Stamp release and all the others. This is a great source of inspiration!
For my share today I created two cards with gold embossed backgrounds using the new Rebecca Lace Background Stamp, added watercoloring to parts of the design with the Gansai Tambi Starry Colors, die cut vellum hearts using a Wonky Hearts Die, and stamped greetings on the vellum hearts with the Thoughtful Messages Stamp Set. I even added a stamped phrase border from the Envelope Greetings Stamp Set on some Metallic Copper Envelopes to match the cards! Adding metallic pigments to dark cardstock is one of my current favorite looks and it's so easy. Let's get started...
The Rebecca Lace Background Stamp was stamped slightly off center on Lawn Fawn Blue Jay Cardstock using Versamark Ink and heat embossing with the Simon Says Stamp Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder. This is s super intricate background design and is absolutely stunning as is however I decided to take the Gansai Tambi Starry Colors pigments and watercolor the white gold and red gold colors from the set into parts of the embossed design for an even more beautiful look!
For the greeting on these cards, I die cut a medium heart from vellum using a Wonky Hearts Die and stamped greetings from the Thoughtful Messages Stamp Set on each using Versamark Ink and heat embossing with Simon Says Stamp Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder and White Fine Detail Embossing Powder. The greeting hearts were adhered to the center of the design on the backgrounds as shown and each card was finished with a scattering of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Pale Gold and Copper Penny.
For the Metallic Copper Envelopes, border greetings from the Envelope Greetings Stamp Set was stamped along the back flaps with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with White Fine Detail Embossing Powder.
