Simon Says Stamp 'Mandy's Flowers'


Hi all! It's almost the weekend!! Woo Hoo!! :-) I am enjoying a fabulous summer and I hope you are too! 

I am here today to share a card I just made using the Simon Says Stamp August Card Kit! It has sold out but the products are available to purchase individually and I have to say that this Mandy's Flowers Clear Stamp Set is gorgeous!! AND GUESS WHAT!! There are Matching Dies now available and one is winging its way to me right now!! can't wait!! I am not a huge fan of fussy cutting and prefer to get the dies whenever possible.



I really wanted to use my Heidi Swap Minc Foil Applicator today so I started by inking a Modern Rose Bloom Cling Stamp with black ink, scanned it, then printed it onto a piece of script paper using a laser printer. I then run it through the Minc Machine with Silver Foil. Ohh so purty! ;-) 

Here's a close up of the oval I saved from the centre,  you can see the shine more clearly on this, gorgeous isn't it!! 


I used a Misti Stamping Tool to stamp the flowers using memento ink, then coloured with copic markers before white heat embossing. 


I used the same Modern Rose Bloom Stamp, inked with Simon's Exclusive Smoke Ink, for the lower part of the card and a MFT Typewriter Text Stamp, inked with Simon's Exclusive Fog Ink for the upper part. 

and I finished the inside

Hi Lorraine! This is just so pretty and I love how you've used the gold foil ovals to frame the rose. I'm sure in person is is even more spectacular. Thanks so much for joining my Flower Power blog challenge and good luck :)
