Simon Says Stamp | Sketched Flowers | Card Inspiration

Hi friends, I have been sharing a lot of die cutting based cards – with lots of dimension. But today I wanted to do some stamping and coloring instead. The stamp set I used is called Sketched Flowers and it is from Simon Says Stamp. It was released in one of the previous card kits (I think ) but this time during Stamptember, they released a matching die.

My Stamptember order is not here yet, so no, I did not use the die. Instead I only stamped the image using alcohol-marker-friendly ink (Memento Tuxedo Black ink) and colored it with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.


Here are the exact colors I used:

  1. Orange / Yellow – flowers and buds

  2. OR3

  3. DR4

  4. GB3

  5. GB1

  6. OR2

  7. DR2

  8. GB4

  9. GB6

  10. Green

  11. LG3

  12. LG4

  13. CG4

  14. White

  15. GG1

  16. GG2

  17. Blue

  18. IB2

  19. IB3

Once I was happy with my coloring, I trimmed my panel to be slightly smaller than my A2 cardbase. All along the edges I added gold coloring with my favorite Gold Deco pen. I also created a label using old (November 2017) Spellbinders Card kit die. Inside this label, I stamped my sentiment and also added gold on the border of this using same deco gold pen.

Finally I foam mounted my sentiment onto the card and also adhered my finished panel on a gray cardbase. I did consider adding some gems to this card, but decided against it and added several gold dots with the same pen to flower centers + leaf bottoms.

So, what do you think? Do let me know in the comments below how you like my card.
