Simon Says Stamp 'Star Stream'

Have you seen the latest 'Sending Sunshine' release from Simon Says Stamp? Oh my goodness, it is full of all things gorgeous! 

I was sent a few samples to use and absolutely LOVE this Star Steam Die, isn't it fabulous! This is perfect for so many occasions! Perfect!

For this first card I also used a new Deco Diamonds Background Cling Stamp and white heat embossed to create a resist. I then blended Broken China Distress Oxide Ink over the top and splattered and spritzed with water. When it was dry I used the Star Steam Die to create the 'wave' and also used the die to cut out the design from Simon's Exclusive Teal Glitter Card 

I used a sentiment from a Simon's Exclusive 'Seeing Stars Clear Stamp Set and silver heat embossed. 

For my 2nd card I started with some watercolor paper and smooshed it in Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink.  I die cut the Star Steam from Simon's Lemon Chiffon Card and added a few dabs of Star Dust Stickles 

The sentiment is from the same Simon's Exclusive 'Seeing Stars Clear Stamp Set

And I finished the inside

Wow Lorraine, our colors look absolutely amazing in your card! I love all the details and what a beautiful sentiment. Your card is maybe a bit on the busy side for our clean and simple challenge (we like to see quite a lot of white/empty space in the cards in our gallery) but it is gorgeous and I'm happy I got to come to visit and be inspired by it! Thanks for joining us at Less Is More and I hope to see you playing along in our new OLC Thinking of You Challenge!
