You Are Simply the Best

Welcome…I’m so glad you’re here!  Today I’m sharing a bright, fun card featuring stamps and dies from Technique Tuesday to help kick off their Season of Thanks Sale.



From now through Thursday, October 24, 2019 save 20% on thank you, grateful-, and Thanksgiving-themed stamps and dies.


For my project I used the Simply You 2.0 Stamp Set and Simply You 2.0 Crafting Dies to create a card that highlights bright, mono-color die cut shapes and that also sets apart the sentiment with a chalkboard embossing technique.



The Simply You 2.0 Crafting Dies are designed to add delicate shapes to cards or pages.  I wanted to use only two pieces, and I wanted them to really stand out.  So…after I ran the dies through the machine I left the small cut outs in place rather than removing them.  Adding a bit of tape on the back kept everything intact and gave me just the look I wanted.  I also wanted to add the sentiment from the Simply You 2.0 Stamp Set in a way that would balance both the white space and the bright colors I’d used…and I thought the chalkboard embossing technique would be perfect.  I grabbed the black cardstock, embossed the sentiment using white powder and attached it across the width of the card.



Finally, I distressed the top, bottom and sides of the card front to add another bit of texture.



Thanks for stopping by!
