Mer-cat fun – Simon Says Stamp Good Vibes Release – Fish Scales Background Panel

Hi friends! Thanks a lot for taking out the time to stop by and read this blog post. I loved the Simon Says Stamp Good Vibes release. It is packed with positive summer vibes. This particular stamp set is so adorable!

I started by taking a huge sheet, approximately 9 inches by 12 inches of Bristol Smooth cardstock and did some ink blending using my Simon Dye inks. Then I die cut the ink blended panel using a circle die about 0.75 inches in diameter. Using my versamark watermark ink pad, I used the Holographic embossing powder from Ranger and I heat embossed each and every die cut. Then I took a panel of regular cardstock, measuring 4 inches by 5.25 inches and placed the die cuts in a fish scale pattern.


Next I took the wonky rectangles die from Simon Says Stamp and die cut a piece of heavy vellum. I stamped the images onto some Neenah Solar White 80 lb cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink and did some copic coloring.

I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Neenah Solar White Classic Crest 110 lb paper in two tones to match the tail of the mer-cat. I used Hot Mama and Spring Rain dye inks from Simon Says Stamp.

I placed everything on top of an A2 sized top folding card base and added some sequins to complete the card.

That is all for this card. I hope you liked it!

Have a great day,
