Simon Says Stamp | Sketched Flowers | Card Inspiration

Hi friends, I have been sharing a lot of die cutting based cards – with lots of dimension. But today I wanted to do some stamping and coloring instead. The stamp set I used is called Sketched Flowers and it is from Simon Says Stamp. It was released in one of the previous card kits (I think ) but this time during Stamptember, they released a matching die.

My Stamptember order is not here yet, so no, I did not use the die. Instead I only stamped the image using alcohol-marker-friendly ink (Memento Tuxedo Black ink) and colored it with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

Here are the exact colors I used:

  • Orange / Yellow – flowers and buds
    • OR3
    • DR4
    • GB3
    • GB1
    • OR2
    • DR2
    • GB4
    • GB6
  • Green
    • LG3
    • LG4
    • CG4
  • White
    • GG1
    • GG2
  • Blue
    • IB2
    • IB3

Once I was happy with my coloring, I trimmed my panel to be slightly smaller than my A2 cardbase. All along the edges I added gold coloring with my favorite Gold Deco pen. I also created a label using old (November 2017) Spellbinders Card kit die. Inside this label, I stamped my sentiment and also added gold on the border of this using same deco gold pen.

Finally I foam mounted my sentiment onto the card and also adhered my finished panel on a gray cardbase. I did consider adding some gems to this card, but decided against it and added several gold dots with the same pen to flower centers + leaf bottoms.

So, what do you think? Do let me know in the comments below how you like my card.
