We are happy to bring back this week’s Featured Company: Simon Says Stamp!. Not only are they one of our favorite online stores to shop at, but they have an awesome line of products of their own branded under their name – Simon Says Stamp.
Today we welcome Laura Bassen. We are so excited to have her showcase her work today on Paper Crafter’s Library. You can see Laura’s fabulous project below, but first, here is a little more about her:
Laura, or better known as Laurafadora, as her family calls her, has been a paper addict, stamp lover and card maker for nearly her entire life. After graduating with a degree in graphic design, she went to a few Stampin’ Up parties, and the rest is history! She started her blog, Doublestick Heaven, in 2008. She lives in central Illinois with her husband & five busy kids. Her down to earth and witty videos will hopefully leave you inspired and with a smile on your face.
Party Banner Birthday Card
To create my card I partially die cut one of the larger circles from the Nested Circles as well as partially die cut the Simon die onto a 4.25″ x 5.5″ front panel. Then I blended in some Lemon Chiffon ink onto the card base so that it would show through the front panel window.
I cut the large birthday sentiment from Circle Sayings so that it could be manipulated to fit perfectly inside the large circle window and stamped it in Versafine Onyx Black ink. Then I stamped the Simon dog image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink as well as the birthday presents from Baby Party Animals that were cut using the coordinating dies and colored everything with Copics.
I die cut the banner using the Party Banner dies, colored them in with Copics and adhered with Multi Matte Medium glue. The tiny little banner from Party Banner dies was also used as a party hat for Simon. I added the teeny tiny dot on top of the hat from a scrap that fell out of my 1/8″ hole punch.
