Simon Says Stamp – Thank you card

Hi guys! It has been a week since I posted a post, but here I am. I had a lot of work and family things to do that I didn’t have time to upload. So, today I am sharing another card with this AMAZING spring birds stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I made a LOT of cards with it already, and I still have plans for a lot more.

So, I started this card with stamping and coloring the bird and the branch. I stamped with memento tuxedo black ink, which is a copic ink friendly ink.

For the copics I used:

  • For the bird: E31 ; E51 ; C7 ; C5; C0 ; C1 ; Bg72 ; Bg70
  • For the branch: E59 ; E37 ; E35 
  • For the leaves: Yg41 ;l G02 ; Yg09

I then use a gelly roll pen for some white lines. 

Then, I cut a panel of strathmore bristol smooth cardstock with Hero Arts nested rectangles infinity die. The cardstock I used is my favorite for ink blending on in, it makes it easier to blend. I used distress oxides in the color cracked pistachio and lucky clover, and blended with my picket fence life changing brushes. I use the pack of 4 and I used a microfiber cloth to wash them, since I don’t have one for every color family. 

I stamped with pine needle distress oxide ink the botanical split background stamp from SSS. Along with the birds, this background stamp is one of my favorite. 

Finally, I die cut the letters for “thank you” with the concord and 9th double-cut alphabet. I only used the outline for this, because I LOVED how my background turned out. For the little sentiment, I used the bunny peek a boo from SSS. I stamped the sentiment with versamark ink and used the super fine white detail embossing powder from Ranger. I heat set if and used some 3M foam tape to pop up between the thank you. I used foam tape with the bird and my panel, because I like some dimension. 

My card is A2 size card, so I glued everything on a white cardstock that I cut and scored to be 4 1/4 and 5 1/2.  

Hope you guys like it ! Thank you for visiting me !
