I was lucky to get happy mail with beautiful Simon Says Stamp products just on time to make my daughter’s 4th Birthday card. Emma’s birthday is this Sunday and she loves unicorns and ponies so Magical Birthday Stamp Set by Simon Says Stamp was just perfect and it is stinkin cute to make girly cards. I love it!
I used watercolour paper 300 grams cold pressed . I stamped the Unicorn using Linen Distress ink then I added colour to the image using Nuvo Brush Scrip Pens and Nuvo Aqua Brushes ( with very little water).
I stamped the sentiment with black Simon Says Stamps ink using my Tim Holtz Stamping Platform.
This is the first time I tried Simon Says Stamp inks and you can see how crisp the little fonts and the starts looks like. Awesome!
I added accents and interest by applying Nuvo Drops and a Nuvo Gold Glitter Marker. I also used a White Uni- Ball pen to add dots on the Unicorn body and I applied Nuvo Aqua Glimmer Pen all over the image ( being very careful as the inks can bleed).
At very last minute I decided to die cut a number 4 and added somehow to the card. I used Large Numbers Dies from Stampin’ Up! and Bristol Smooth Cardstock. I sponged the number with Duckling Ink by Simon Say Stamps and using Sunshine Ink by Simon Says Stamps I stamped the small stamps in the set all over the die cut.
When I placed the number on the front panel it really didn’t work so I tried something else: I placed a piece of craft foam behind the watercolour panel and I run these 2 pieces through the Big Shot to make a window for a shaker and by doing this I got the window perfectly aligned in those pieces.
I sandwiched a piece of acetate between the craft foam and the back of the front watercolor panel and I glued it down with Tombow glue.
I paste the stamped number on a piece of thin cardstock and I placed at the bottom of the shaker window. I added just a few sequins.
If you look at the number with attention you will see how cool Simon Says Stamps inks look like. It it hard to say that is a stamped piece of cardstock …it actually looks like scrapbook paper.
I also used Scallop Stitches Wafer Dies by Simon Says Stamp to die cut a Pinky background.
