Simon Says Stamp: Encouraging Words Blog Hop + Giveaway

by May Park-

Hello, and welcome to the Simon Says Stamp One Of A Kind Blog Hop! If you came from the amazing Nina-Marie Trapani’s blog, you are right on track!

For my first card, I started by stamping the images from the Encouraging Animals Stamp Set with Hero Arts Intense Black Ink on an A2 white card base. Then I colored the partial images with a black marker from Altenew Artist Markers Set A.

I added little dots between the images using a bullet tip of the Altenew black marker to fill in the gaps. After that, I heat embossed the sentiment three times from the Encouraging Animals Stamp Set with Hero Arts white embossing powder on three colors of some My Favorite Things colored cardstock.

I finished off the card by mounting my sentiment strips with 3M foam tape to the card front. If you are not good at coloring animal images like me, this is a great alternative way to create a card without much coloring skills needed.

For my second card, I stamped my images with Altenw Rouge Ink ink onto an A2 sized piece of card stock from Hero Arts Blush Mix Layering Papers. Then I partially colored them with Copic markers

Then I white heat-embossed the sentiments from the Hello You Stamp Set on a piece of Altenew Jet Black Cardstock and mounted mounting my sentiment strips with 3M foam tape to the card front to add some dimension. 

To finish off my card, I added a black enamel dot so I can balance my sentiment banners. Hope you enjoyed seeing my cards and got some inspiration to create your own card using simple/partial coloring.
