Simon Says Stamp Blossoms & Butterflies Blog Hop + Giveaway | Dahlia Frame Die and Floral Mix Background

April 13, 2019


Hello from Scotland everyone! I hope you are having a great day and welcome to a new Simon Says Stamp blog hop to celebrate Blossoms and Butterflies release here!

Today I'm sharing ideas using  Dhalia Frame Wafer DieFloral Mix Background,  and  Tiny Words Encouragement Stamp Set and a 5- minutes video to show you the process.


All the cards below are size: C6 (5-1/2 x 4-1/4" inches) 

 I  also used every single die cut  (nothing was wasted ) and   I  defo had to try different colours!! 

Which colour do you like the most?


I heat emboss the backgrounds on Arches watercolour paper using embossing powders and Simon Says Stamp clear ink.  Then I applied different shades of Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens over the paper and I sprayed loads of water. 

I allowed to dry and I used   Dhalia Frame Wafer Die to cut the backgrounds and this allowed me to create a  dimensional framed composition. 


Behind the die cut flower, I added Craft Perfect Glitter cardstock in a colour that coordinates with the embossing powder used for each card.


Tiny Words Encouragement Stamp Set was perfect to stamp small banners to add to all my projects today.


I also used a couple of dies to cut a gift box and a tag.  All the products used to create projects in this post are listed below.

  72. Hi Bibi. I'm so disappointed you didn't speak while making this FABULOUS Youtube, as I was dying to hear your beautiful Scottish accent. LOVE hearing Celtic accents!!!!! Anyway, your cards are more than stunning - I would never have thought to do what you did, and that's why you are a designer and I'm not, I suppose. The backgrounds were all so beautiful and the resulting cards, tag, box are all stunning. I can't believe you didn't have more cardstock underneath while you were creating those backgrounds to sop up all that wonderful colour, LOL. Anyway, you made my day. Am loving this new SSS release and the images, sentiments, stamps are all just great and a "must have" for me. Thanks so much for sharing. Sorry about the novel, I am super wordy.
