United We Craft Blog Party

Welcome everyone to the United We Craft Blog Party! Times are pretty chaotic right now but that gives us plenty of time to craft right?! I have some inspiration to share with you today featuring Simon Says Stamp. I hope you take some time for YOU, head to your craft room and create. If you share it on Instagram, be sure to use the hashtags #SSSUnitedWeCraft and #simonsaysstamp because we’d love to see!

Today I’m using the Daffodil Stem Wafer Die. Now I know this is out of stock at the moment, but you can always click the “Notify Me” button so when it comes back in, you’ll get notified.

I will also link to a few other dies that would work for my card inspiration. Also, dig through your stash. This is a great time to play with products that are collecting dust on the shelves.

I actually used scraps on my first card. This rainbow was a background that I created using a swiping technique with Alcohol Inks on Silver Sparkle Alcohol Ink cardstock. This is a left over piece I just couldn’t part with and it sure came in handy for this card.

My Daffodil is cut 3 times from white card stock and adhered together with liquid glue. Then just attached to the front panel. I added a sentiment from the CZ Designs Sentiment Strips. They are preprinted on Black cardstock so all I had to do was trim it down and attach to the front of my card. Easy Peasy!

My next card is quite simple to create. I ink blended a Plaid Stencil onto Sweet Corn cardstock with Sweet Corn Ink from Gina K Designs. Then trimmed down the panel down to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and added to a white A2 notecard.

I, once again, stacked my die but die cutting it 3 times from white cardstock and layering together with liquid glue. This creates nice dimension without too much of a lift.

I finished off by adding another Sentiment Strip that I trimmed from the CZ Designs Sentiment Strips. These are great because there is no stamping involved and there is a great variety of sentiments to choose from.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and you find some time to de-stress and get crafty!
