Simon Says Stamp Heart Blooms

Hey card making friends, welcome back.  Today I have two cards to share with you created with the Simon Says Stamp Heart Blooms Stencil.  This is a new stencil that I have been having a lot of fun with and I have two different ink blending techniques to share today.  Along with the stencil, a couple of new sentiment dies from Simon Says Stamp that I really like.

Stencilling is a super cool way to create quick, easy and inexpensive backgrounds for your cards.  I just love playing with them and trying out new color combos.  I remember as a kid, I used my allowance to buy a stencil of pansy’s and I stenciled EVERYTHING haha, even a few things I wasn’t supposed too, LOL.

It appears that overnight this stencil sold out over at Simon, so if you want one, fill in the info to be notified when it’s back in stock.

How to create the Simon Says Stamp Heart Blooms Birthday Card.

Supplies used:

Heart Blooms Stencil

Fancy love You word dies

Birthday Wishes Word Dies

Nested Hearts Wafer Dies

Stay Gold Sequins



Start by cutting a white card front at 3-3/4 x 5″ and securing it to scrap paper on your work surface.  Next, attach the stencil. (or use a sticky mat).

Next, using really small blending brushes, add the colors through the stencil.  For this one, I’m using Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated inks in Sweets, Surf and Tidepool.  It’s a really pretty bright combo that I love.

Once the stenciling is done, add foam to the back of the piece and attach it to a top folding A2 sized card base.

Then, use the Nested Hearts dies to cut a vellum heart.  Cut the Birthday Wishes sentiment from white and matte gold card stock.  Stack and attach to the heart.  Glue down the Stay Gold sequin on the heart, then turn it over and add foam squares to the back of the heart behind the sequin and sentiment so that no adhesive shows through the vellum.  Sequin the rest of the card.

Simon Says Stamp Heart Blooms, Card #2

Start with the same size card piece as above, this time using Bubblegum, Sweets and Taffy ink pads, add a light ombre ink blend over the entire surface.

Next, attach the clean stencil, and ombre the same ink colors through it.

The rest of the steps are the same except for the sentiment, this time use the New Fancy Love You for a pretty Valentine’s Card.

  1. Once again you “score” with beautiful color choices and I love the addition of a vellum heart. Great idea for an addition to a Valentine. Thanks!
