Hello friends! So excited to join to day to Simon Says Stamp‘s new Diecember® 2017! This is amazing — join SSS blog for tons of inspiration today and tomorrow! New products are really great and I am so happy I had the opportunity to create the cards with them. And I have two different cards to share with you today — something sweet and something bright yet elegant.
And I want to start with my red bright card. Here I was inspired by new two SSS products — Nested Talk Bubbles and Big Joy Snowflake. Here I also played with the textures, depth and details. All them together create the interesting look.
For the background I embossed the piece of the red card stock with Christmas Star stencil and then sprinkled it with the white paint and shining mist. The speech bubble is вшу cut of the same card stock, I only added another details to it. I adhered few pieces of the twine and the gold shining star. Also the small labeled sentiment and few sequins.
My second card for today highlights new Picture Book Happy Penguin die. These penguins are sooo sweet! I die cut two of them of the white card stock and sponged the elements with Distress ink. To make them even sweeter I colored the critters with pink and light blue colors — like the boy and the girl))
In the front panel I die cut the window with SSS Holly Oval frame die and blended the background with three blue Distress inks. Then sprinkled with the water and white paint. The sentiment and some clear drops and sequins are the last details.
Have a great day!
