Simon Says Stamp


US of CRAFT-AY is a brand new set full of all the most adorable crafty tools and sentiments.  I wanted to create a clean and simple card and I had to incorporate all the sentiments so I came up with this....


Simon Says Stamp


I stamped the main sentiments on the white card base using my Misti and then added in the die cut "rainbow" and the other crafty tools.  I love that sentiment....Make America Craft Again!  So fun!

Simon Says Stamp


I knew this Peony Bouquet stamp would have so many possibilities, but of course, I had to go quick and simple.  


Simon Says Stamp


I inked up the full stamp with Altenew's Rouge Ink and then sponged in some Heartbeat Red in the center.  I stamped in the sentiment from Crafty Bunnies and then added score lines along the bottom to finish it off.

Simon Says Stamp


I had to use the US of CRAFT-AY set one more time, so I colored up and die cut all of those adorable tools.

I heat embossed the white embossing powdered sentiment on the red stitched rectangle and then added in all the tools with fun foam.  Last, I added the focal point to a scored base to keep it full of my favorite white space!
