Hi friends and welcome back. Today I’m excited to be hopping along with the Simon Says Stamp Just a Note Release Blog Hop Day 2. The design family has outdone themselves with their makes to share with you today, there is so much fabulous inspiration in this hop. I started with the new Golden Fern Embossing Folder Card. By the time I was finished, I had added almost all the new things SSS had sent me, haha.
GiveAway: Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $25. coupon to every stop on the hop from your blog comments. Winners will be posted on the Simon Says Blog on Wed. Aug 2. Winners can email SSS to claim their prize

Most of the month I have been playing with Christmas in July and in particular the Blue Spruce colored cardstock from Spellbinders. Well in my design kit, I received the two new sets of Mini Ink Cubes that Simon has been releasing, Blue Seas Collection and Blue Skies Collection. Turns out, one set of the colors, is almost identical to the Blue Spruce Color – which I have used for the stems on today’s card.
Pawsitively Saturated Ink: Aegean – Tropic – Tidepool and these are part of the BLUE SEAS Collection.
How to create the Golden Fern Embossing Folder Card:
Start by using blending brushes to blend Aegean, Tropic and Tide Pool inks up a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ white card front.
Next, place inside the Golden Fern Embossing Folder and run it through the die cutting machine.
Then, using a sponge dauber, add more of the Aegean ink to the embossed image.
Golden Fern Embossing Folder Card – Embellishing:
Here’s where it got a little crazy, LOL.
First, water splatter the piece, then mix Gansai Tambi Gold watercolor and splatter the piece again. Once it’s dry, attach it to a top folding A2 Sized White card base.
Then, cut the “Just a Note” sentiment from the Blue Spruce card stock and the shadow from Vellum.
Finally, glue these all together and add them to the card front using small pieces of foam tape.
Embellish with the NEW Perfect Day Sequins
That’s for my share today, I hope you enjoyed this easy and fun technique and will give it a try.
