Friendly Frolic from Simon Says Stamp Release Day – Leafy Frame
Simon Says Stamp Friendly Frolic Release Day is here! I was privileged to receive a fun new product from Simon Says Stamp Friendly Frolic release ahead of time so that I could create a beautiful project for today’s release! They sent me a beautiful new die called Leafy Frame, which I paired with other dies and stamps from Simon to create this card.
GOJUS! Once I cut the frame out of Neenah Solar White, I decided to create a beautiful watercolor background using Peerless Watercolors. I taped my Ranger watercolor paper to a clipboard and painted stripes in a couple of different blue shades then speckled it with plain water as well as lime green and more blue.
To create the greeting, I chose to use the Believe die with the matching stamp set. I die cut Believe three times from Simon Black card stock, stacked them, and painted the piece with Wink of Stella. I stamped “In Your Dreams” on Green Apple card stock with Versafine Black.
I cut tiny butterflies out of Simon’s Audrey Blue card stock to add to the card painted with more Clear Wink of Stella. The contrast of the warm blue with the cooler blues of the background is just delicious to me. Adding a few Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh was the perfect finishing touch.
Honestly, Simon could not have sent me a die from their Friendly Frolic release I would love better than this! I love making great media-driven backgrounds, and this frame will set off anything I might create!
Below is my list of products that I used, and I have used Simon Says Stamp affiliate links only this time since they sent me this cool die for free. Buying through these links costs you nothing extra but pays me a small percentage of your purchase price, which helps support my blog and my artistic endeavors, and I thank you.
