Hero Arts – Simon Says Stamps IG Challenge

Happy Wednesday! I am so glad you stopped by. It means so much to me that you take time out of your day to read my post.

Today I have two cards for you. A two for one deal. These cards are for the Simon Says Stamps July IG Challenge. This month the challenge is watercolor, right up my alley!

With such a general theme, I like to look back at my older supplies. It gives me a chance to play around with them, instead of being focused on new items. For these cards, I broke out the Hero Arts Window On Love Confetti die.

I die cut the die from watercolor cardstock, then added a wash of shimmery watercolors. I was going for a pink to purple wash. I also cut it from some 110lbs Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock. When the panel was dry, I swapped the die cut pieces and did a inlay technique.

For the first card, I die cut a heart from vellum using Hero Arts Heart Infinity die. The sentiment is from Hero Arts Hello. I die cut the word hello for times and layered it together with liquid adhesive. I stamped beautiful from the set with Altenew Jet Black ink, trimmed down the sentiment and added it with foam tape. I added some clear confetti sequins to the card. The card base is Neenah.

For the second card, I cut another vellum heart. The sentiment is from Concord & 9th’s Flower Patch turnbabout set. I die cut the sentiment from the banner and added Magenta Glitter cardstock from Simon Says Stamps.

I added the banner to the heart with foam tape, then added it to the card. The card base is Gina K Design’s Passionate Pink. Doesn’t the shimmer look amazing?

This card was pretty easy to make, if you ignore the time spent doing the die cut inlay. I made is a bit easy by taping the pieces in their original negative space with micropore tape. That way the shapes didn’t get mixed up and become a puzzle.

Thanks for stopping by!
