SSS Be Creative 2023 release

 Hello crafty friends!  Today I'm sharing my card that features the oh, so awesome new Big Old Birthday stamps set!  This set is in Simon Says Stamp's new Be Creative 2023 release! 

First I stamped the Pretty Peonies Background stamp with clear embossing ink.  I stamped it onto 80# Neenah and used my anti-static tool on the cardstock before stamping.  Then I sprinkled on white detail embossing powder and heat set it.

Next I used the Pawsitively Saturated Ink in the colors of Cherry, Watermelon, and Guava to ink over the embossing with ink blending brushes.  I used a dry paper towel to wipe away excess ink from the white embossing.  I used a stitched rectangle die to cut it out before adhering it to my A2 card base.

Next I stamped the sentiments from the awesome new Big Old Birthday stamp set.  Using my MISTI makes this technique so easy!  I used the same inks listed above to create the ombré look.  Just use a paper towel to dab at the harsh line from the ink pad, stamp it, then move on to the next color, and repeat.  To add shine to the sentiment, I stamped it once more with clear embossing ink.  Then I added clear embossing powder and heat set it.

I die cut the sentiment with another stitched rectangle die.  I did some partial die cutting by placing the die at the top of my stamped sentiment.  After I ran that through my die cutting machine, I moved the die so that the bottom of the die aligned with the bottom of the sentiment.  Die cut again, and voila!  A matching stitched die cut!

After I popped up the sentiment with foam tape on the card, I decided I wanted a few embellishments.  I used the Flickering Butterflies and the Stitching Butterflies dies to cut a piece of vellum.  Before I die cut the butterflies, I inked on some Watermelon ink with a blending brush.  I used glue to assemble the large butterfly and then adhered them all to the card.  I added some sparkly gem stickers for some pretty sparkle.
