Welcome to day 2 of the new Simon Says Stamp Happy and Joyful release blog hop! I'm excited to welcome you to my page. I hope you will find lots of inspiration from this blog hop. Please click HERE to see the entire release!
I have made a fun card for you today using a couple of stamp sets from the new release.
When I was in school as a child my favorite thing to do was to color. As far back as I can remember playing with crayons, markers or paint was just pure fun. I once read about the effects of color on human beings can cause excitement while being calming, giving inspiration as well as relieving anxiety or tension. This rings true with me!! I call it my color therapy when I sit down to color with what ever medium I use. When I saw this Mother Earth stamp set I just knew I would want to color it with Copic markers. I love the way they blend.
I made this card using some smooth white cardstock for the A2 sized card base. I then chose a rectangle die a bit smaller than the front of the card base to leave a border. I then stamped the beautiful ocean scene on a separate sheet of white cardstock and colored it using Copic markers. I then cut it out using a circle die and added it to the upper center of the front panel.
I never have enough birthday cards so I wanted to make this lovely scene into a birthday card. I stamped the sentiments from the Birthday Sentiments stamp set using Simon's Pawsitivly Saturated inks and embossed them using clear embossing powder for a little shine. To finish the card off I add some stickles glitter to add some sparkle.
I hope you have enjoyed your time here and got some inspiration! If you are like me, this will be a fun stamp set to color and relieve a bit of stress!
