Hello friends, I am back sharing some additional inspiration with you, using Simon Says Stamp’s new Good Job Mama stamp set!
You may have already seen the two cards I created the other day using this set, along with the Incredible Woman stamp set. If you haven’t, you can see the video and post here.
I really loved the sentiments that Cathy Zielske put together for the Good Job Mama set so much that I wanted to use it again. I feel like you can never have enough encouraging words for making cards; especially for all our much-loved moms!
I don’t know about you, but I adore pastes and stencils! ThermoWeb’s Transfer Gel or Ranger’s Transparent Texture Paste are both great for this technique; today I’m using the Transfer Gel. The fun part about either of these pastes is that they dry clear, which means you can ink blend underneath them!
So I first applied Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar Distress Oxides through Simon’s Reverse Hearts stencil; before removing the stencil, I also applied a layer of paste that I had mixed some Prisma and Chunky Lawn Fawn glitter into. Once this dried, I was left with this gorgeous ombré of color embellished with a pretty layer of sparkle! The best part is that the glitter does not flake off, because we mixed it into the paste prior to applying.
To hold my stencil in place while I did all my stenciling, I used ThermoWeb’s Pixie Spray – love that this spray does not leave a residue on my cardstock!
The next thing I did was die cut a heart from the corner of the glitter heart panel; I also cut a heart from the front corner of a Bubblegum card base. I adhered these two pieces together – ensuring that the hearts are lined up – with foam tape. This leaves a window through the front of the card, looking to the inside.
The inside is where I white heat embossed the “good job mama” sentiment. I just love how it is recessed from the front, peeking through the heart window.
I added a second greeting to the card, this one embossed on Doll Pink cardstock. This sentiment is also popped up off the card with foam tape. I finished everything off with just a few simple sequins from Simon’s Girl’s Best Friend mix.
A big shout out to Cathy Zielske for creating this amazing stamp set; I know it is one I will be reaching for frequently. If you don’t follow Cathy, be sure to do so; I so enjoy all of her gorgeous cards!
I hope that today’s card has inspired you further with ideas on how you can use this new Good Job Mama stamp set from Simon Says Stamp! Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting me today!
