And Back Again Simon Says Stamp Release Blog Hop Day 1

Hello friends! I’m so excited to be joining Simon Says Stamp in their blog hop celebrating their latest release And Back Again! So much fun stuff!

We have a special treat for you today! Shop during our blog hop and get our exclusive Love Gnome 3×4 stamp set FREE! Use the code GNOMIE at checkout. How can you resist a gnome? I can’t.

My card today features the Fancy Cake Wafer Die. It comes with candles but I thought it would be a great time to create a wedding card. These are the events that seem to pop up and I have nothing ready.

I die cut the base layer of the cake from white cardstock and the layers from shimmer white cardstock. I added the layers to the cake using foam squares to give it added dimension.

There is also additional dies you can purchase to dress up your cake, which I’ll link below but instead I added a smidge of color using some of the ephemera from the Limited Edition 2022 Love Card Kit.

I have inspiration using the kit in a video that you can check out HERE.

I wanted to keep this all pretty simple but yet have some shine. So I added the Splatters from the Splatters Sentiments Hot Foil Plate to a white background.

I also used the Brushed Sentiments Hot Foil Plate from Pinkfresh Studio which is popped up on the front of my card.

These adorable little hearts are from the ephemera pack in the Love Kit which I thought added such a finishing touch.

This card is all finished off by adding to an Ivory card base.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration!

I also have a video that I shared on release night featuring more products fro this release that you can view HERE.
