Simple Sentiments Week - Day 1

January 21, 2019

Hey everyone this is Nicky with you today and I'm sharing a card that puts the new Simple Sentiments stamp set front and centre.  Simple Sentiments comes with coordinating Elle-ments which makes your sentiment strips incredibly simple to make!

To create my card I ink blended my background using Distress Inks and then splashing a watered down amount of the ink into each colour zone to distress it a little further.  I dotted in some silvery gold gel pen dots and then die cut the panel to give it the subtle stitched edge.

I adhered the panel to the card base.  I die cut a whole bunch of the Simple Sentiments Elle-ments and then chose a few of the stamp sentiments that would say what I wanted them to declare and then stamped them in Versamark Ink and heat embossed in Antique Gold embossing powder.  I masked a line down the left hand length of my card and aligned my sentiment strips along it and adhered them with foam tape before removing the mask.

On Bristol Smooth cardstock I stamped the foxes from Party Fox, I watercolour painted them using Kuretake Zigs then die cut them using the Party Fox Elle-ments.  These too were adhered with  foam tape and the final touch for the card was the addition of a generous amount of flat, gold, micro star embellishments for a celebratory twinkle!

Thanks for stopping the Avery Elle blog today - happy crafting everybody!
