I have another stencilled card with Simon Says Stamp's new release, Lucky To Know You! The Daisy Bouquet stencil is just one of many exciting products that have been introduced in this release.
I began this card by creating an ink blended background on Simon Says Stamp's Cotton Candy cardstock. I wanted the ink to radiate from the right corner where my bunny die cut was destined to be placed. I used two Distress Oxide inks; Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry. My light tone would be the soft pink of the card stock. I applied the darker ink around the perimeter of the base except the right corner. I turned to Worn Lipstick to blend toward this corner lessening pressure so it would eventually fade into the card stock colour. I applied the ink several times until I had a smooth blend.
The Daisy Bouquet stencil is designed to fit in a corner. I positioned it in the upper left hand corner and and applied Hero Arts Unicorn White Ink. I thought the white ink would give more prominence to the clear gel I planned stencil next. I then applied Faber Castell's Glass Bead Glitter Gel. This gel is very sparkly and applying the white ink was likely unnecessary.
I built Simon Says Stamp's Picture Book Bunny on white foam by first adhering the main die cut and trimming it. Having a base to attach the smaller die cuts, in spite of a bit of fussy cutting, made this an easy task. I also knew the background it would be attached would be textured and wanted the base of the bunny to have some 'give'.
With the bunny assembled, I turned my attention to the sentiment 'Some Bunny Loves You' from Simon Says Stamp's Oh Bunny stamp set. I wanted this sentiment stacked so covered 'Loves You' with masking tape, inked with Versafine Onyx Black, removed the tape and stamped on vellum paper. The stamp was cleaned well, After lining up the second half of the sentiment under 'Some Bunny', I repeated the process to stamp 'Loves You'. The sentiment was die cut with Simon Says Stamp's Nested Talk Bubbles.
The panel was die cut with the scalloped frame die in Simon Says Stamp's Frames die set. White foam to raise the small panel and white glitter card stock to frame it were also cut with this die. The card was assembled on Neenah Solar White 110lb card base. Both the bunny and talking bubble were adhered. When gluing the vellum, I used small dots of glue behind the wording only. the inside of the bunny's ears were painted with White Nuvo Glitter Drops. I used a pin to apply small drops of Black Nuvo Crystal drops to both the eyes and nose. I finished up with a few drops of Bubblegum Blush in the stencilled area.
