Hello friends! It’s time for the Simon Says Stamp Just For You release! I have lots to share with you in the future but for tonight I’m kicking it off with a beautiful background stamp and using my distress oxides to do some ink blending and stamping.
I have a video that you can watch down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.
Introducing the lovely Leaf Edges stamp. This is kind of like a two-for-one stamp set. You are getting two edge stamps in one. You just simply peel them apart.
I started by ink blending a background using Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire distress oxide ink.
I placed my panel into my Misti, lined up the image and stamping it in Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire and a bit of Black Soot. I love the intensity of the edges and how it fades off towards the other corner of the card.
I trimmed the panel down with an A2 Layers die from Waffle Flower and added it to an A2 size card panel.
The sentiment is the Sending Love Wafer Die which I die cut from Matte Gold cardstock and layered with white to add dimension.
The flicks of color you see in the background is using my Gansai Tambi Starry Watercolors.
Such a simple look but packs a lot of punch! I love this stamp set!
I watched the video on You Tube before I realized this was a Blog Hop. I already gave it a ‘thumbs up’ on YT, but I have to leave a comment here because I just LOVE this card!!! I liked it so much I used your link this morning to add that background stamp to my SSS cart! I told myself I didn’t need any more background stamps, but then you happened. LOL Thanks for an easy-to-make card that can be used for any occasion (and sympathy cards are hard to make for me, but this one is perfect).
Hi, Mindy – This is a beautiful card and very easy to make. I have those inks and would shop my stash until I can order that stamp. There are just tooo many new releases all at the same time right now. My checkbook is screaming at me! LOL

Love your card Mindy. Your color choices always amaze me. Thank you for sharing your wonderful ideas
Beautiful and elegant card.
Love the colors you chose.
Thanks for sharing and for the inspiration.
I love this card so much. I had to get on the wait list for the background stamp.😩. I had it in my cart and spent too much time shopping and when I tried to check out it was sold out. I’m sure it will be re-stocked.
