simon says stamp be bold

A bold & beautiful new collection of stamps, dies, stencils and more just hit the Simon Says Stamp shop...the Be Bold collection!!!

There are so many fab sets but I am currently a little obsessed with two new stencils, Groovy Blooms and Retro Arcs!

The Groovy Blooms is a really cute layering stencil set but for this card I just couldn't get enough of the large bold bloom so I used low-tack tape to isolate one flower on the stencil. Then I ink blended that bloom with Distress Oxide Carved Pumpkin & Picked Raspberry repeatedly over my card front.

I repeated the same process with the second stencil, isolating just one flower middle and using Black Soot ink.

I finished the card with one of my favorite phrase dies, Simply Thank You and a little faux splatter with a pen.

For this card I used the Retro Arcs stencil with my favorite rainbow of Distress Oxide ink (Carved Pumpkin, Picked Raspberry, Shaded Lilac, Salvaged Patina and Twisted Citron).

Now I'm usually a little lazy with stencils, like just hold them in place and hope for the best, LOL! But with this stencil I highly recommend using Pixie Spray or a similar adhesive because the stencil is just so delicate.

I added a die cut sentiment with the Love You die and a little faux splatter with a pen to finish the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs!!!
