Simon Says Stamp - Friendship Bloom Card Set

Hi crafty friends! I'm back sharing a sweet card set featuring the new Friendship Bloom stamp set from the new Simon Says Stamp "Reason to Smile" release. I absolutely love the sentiments included in this set, so much that I used all three sentiments to make a set of cards!

I started off by die cutting three white panels using an A2-sized stitched rectangle die. I die cut the bottom of the panels using a stitched scallop border die. For some added interest, I off-set the border die. I then used my MISTI tool to quickly stamp the images onto all three of the panels and then colored the stamped images with Copic Markers.

I used kraft cardstock for the cardbases and stamped the Gingham Background stamp onto the cardbases with white pigment ink. I rounded the bottom two corners and popped up the focal panels onto the cardbases with craft foam.

I then added 4mm and 6mm Clear Droplets from Pretty Pink Posh. And as a finishing touch, I covered the flowers with Clear Wink of Stella glitter and added Shimmer Pico Embellisher to the berries.

I just love the way this card set turned out! This set is so incredibly versatile and I really enjoyed coloring the images too. I hope you were inspired today and be sure to check the full "Reason to Smile" release and the SSS Brand Gallery for much more inspiration! Thanks again for stopping by!
