Simon Says Stamp Stamptember Exclusive Ornate Ornaments

Hello everyone.

Today I am sharing with you a card that I made using some NEW Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Products. This NEW set is called Ornate Ornaments and it's sold over at Simon Says Stamp. This set is so pretty. There are so many things that come to mind when you look at this set. So many different techniques or colors that are reminiscent of the holiday season.

For my card, I used three of the Ornate Ornaments in the set and stamped them with Versamark ink on Simon Says Stamp Sea Glass cardstock that had been prepped with an EK Success powder tool. I then sprinkled on some WOW! White Puff Twinkle embossing powder and heated it with my heat tool. I then cut out each ornament by hand using my EK Success scissors. I then used a 1/16 hole punch to cut a hole in the top of each ornament. After each tiny hole was cut a set them aside for now.

 I chose a Simon Says Stamp Slate card base in standard A2 size, top folding. I then cut a piece of Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock down with my Your Next Stamp Stitched Rectangle die (second from largest in the set).

I took the Fog cardstock panel and placed it in my MISTI where I proceeded to stamp the sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Ornate Ornaments stamp set. I stamped it with Versamark ink onto the lower right corner of the panel. I then used Hero Arts Gold embossing powder and my heat tool to heat emboss the sentiment in gold.

I also installed an eyelet in the top left of the same card panel. I made it Gold, like the sentiment. I then began to string each ornament from the eyelet at the top of the card panel. I used Coats Metallic thread in Gold. I secured it to the back of the card panel with Scotch gift wrapping tape.
I then adhered a piece of craft foam to the back of the Fog cardstock panel using double sided adhesive. This panel was also secured to the Slate card base with the same double sided tape.

I took some Lawn Fawn Glue Tube liquid adhesive and adhered one of the ornaments to the card, flat to the panel. Then I used both a single shot and a double shot of Scotch 3M foam tape to pop up the additional two ornaments.

I then stamped the sub sentiment "wishing you", also from the Simon brand Ornate Ornaments stamp set. I stamped it with Versamark ink onto a small strip of that Slate cardstock from Simon. I used Ranger White embossing powder to heat emboss it. I then used Heffy Doodle's Strips of Ease die to cut it out. I popped the tiny sentiment up with a small piece of Scotch 3M foam adhesive and placed it just above the Gold embossed "Christmas Blessings".

I have to say, I like how the card turned out, the eyelet at the top really blends in with all of the Gold and clear sequins that I added using that same liquid adhesive. Lawn Fawn's Glue Tube. I think that is it. I hope you like my card.
