Let’s Connect from Simon Says Stamp!

I am joining the fun over at Simon Says Stamp for the new Let’s Connect release!! Hooray for mailing cards and staying connected! 🙂

I am using the fabulous NEW SSS Stamp: Drawn Daises and you can find it HERE. The sentiment I used is from the previously released Just Because Word Mix 2. 🙂 I cut it all out with the SSS Basic Rectangles.This stamp is quite pretty! I’m not entirely sure I did it justice, but it was fun to create. 🙂 I stamped and white heat embossed this on some watercolor paper before painting it with my watercolors. I think this card could definitely be better with some more practice. Watercolor is tricky for me to use on images because I want to control it too much. 🙂 ha!

I wanted to make the Daisies pop, so I did a dark background. I am looking forward to sending this one out into the world! 🙂

Send Happiness from Simon Says Stamp!

Today I am joining the fun over at Simon Says Stamp for the new Send Happiness release!! Wait til you see this stamp I used below–whoah! 🙂

I am using the NEW SSS Stamp: Poppies Background and you can find it HERE. The sentiment I used is from SSS Love Messages. ❤ I cut the whole thing out with the SSS Basic Rectangles too. )

This Poppies Background stamp is a lovely one and large to cover your whole card front, if you so choose. I decided to white heat emboss it and then blend on some Ripe Persimmon Distress Oxide Ink (with a dab of Hickory Smoke). Then I splattered it with paint, added some stitching the sentiment and done. 🙂
