Simon Says Stencil It

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Welcome crafters, and anyone who is interested in what I have created here. I hope it will give you some inspiration to try something new for yourself.

I thought that I had taken more pictures during the creation of this card. When I went to create this post I realized that I did not have any pictures before this one.

I started this card by adding VersaMark ink to the stencil and then laying a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock on top of the stencil and running it through my die cutting machine using the embossing mat. Then I added white embossing powder to it and heat set it with my heat tool.

I took another piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock and applied some white texture paste to that one and let it dry overnight. I used some Kuretake Gansai Tambi white shimmery watercolor and applied that over the entire texture paste surface. Then I let it dry again. I then adhered that to a white card base.

I took the embossed panel and used Distress inks to blend color onto it and then cut out the shape that I wanted.

I used a craft nice to cut slits in the panel and curled the edges of the cuts to add dimension to that star panel. I used 3M foam tape to adhere it to the textured card base. I added some clear gems from Studio Katia and some aquamarine Glamour Gliz hot fix crystals around the card.

For my sentiment I chose to add the Thinking of You from Simon Says Stamp Thoughtful Messages stamp set to a blue cardstock with VersaFine Onyx Black ink and black embossing powder, and heat set it. I couldn't decide where I wanted the sentiment to end up, so I took a picture with it in two of the spots that I thought that it might work.
 Leave me a comment and let me know which one is better.

Thanks so muck for visiting!
