I’m very excited about the
latest kit from Simon Says Stamp, because the kit contains a stamp set that I illustrated called Cozy Wishes. The set features Scandinavian-inspired birdhouses and little birds to pair with them. I’m a big fan of birds and I enjoy watching them outside my studio windows as I craft; I have feeders right by the window and the birds frequent them every day (much to my cats’ delight)! In this card project I am using many of the kit contents to make a frosty, layered scene.
The background uses the new
Berries and Leaves stencil from Simon Says Stamp; I ink blended through it using Laurel Green, Evergreen, and Schoolhouse Red inks.
For the birds and birdhouses from the
Cozy Wishes stamp set, I stamped with Intense Black ink and then colored the images with Copics. I used the following colors:
Dark wood areas: E42, E43, E44 Light wood areas: E40, E42 Teal: BG70, BG72, BG75, BG78 Red: R81, R83, R85 Green: G20, G24, G28 Gray: C0, C3, C6
Framing my scene, I have some of Simon’s
Matte Silver Cardstock. My card base is made from Cream cardstock, cut and scored to an A2 size.
My card is embellished with splatter using Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain in
Picket Fence, Unicorn Dust glitter, and Moonshine sequins (both from Simon).
This card uses contents from
Simon’s new November 2021 Card Kit, which you can see here. SUPPLIES
