Simon Says Stamp – Altenew STAMPtember Exclusive


Hello, crafty friends! Today I’m excited to share the newest Simon Says Stamp’s STAMPtember Altenew exclusive set. This lovely set is called Dainty Sprig, and it features a delicate sprig with layered flowers, perfect for a variety of techniques and projects. Today I’m sharing a simple card that came together in no time.

I started by trimming the card panel to 4×5.25” – I used Neenah 80lbs Solar White cardstock. I then positioned my stamp to cover one corner of the panel, stamped the image with Altenew Permanent Black Ink, and then turned the panel to cover the other corner without moving the stamp. This is the simplest and fastest way to create a symmetrical design. Next, I used some of my favorite Altenew Crisp Dye Inks for the top layer of the flowers: Sunkissed, Orange Cream, Autumn Blaze, and Firebrick.

I colored the leaves and the center of the flowers with Altenew Artist Markers, and added splatters of orange around the stamped images.

For the sentiment, I heat-embossed it on a separate piece of white cardstock with Altenew Translucent Pearl Embossing Powder, matted it with black cardstock, and adhered it in the center of the panel with foam adhesive.Simple card by @enzamg for @simonsaysstamp and @altenew. #STAMPtember #stamping #cards #cardmaking

To finish the card, I adhered the panel to the base, for which I used a pretty white and black polka dot patterned paper.

I hope you enjoyed reading about my process and are inspired to create with this STAMPtember exclusive. If you love this set, make sure to grab it right away, as it is only available while supplies last!

Have a wonderful day!
