Simon Says Stamp "Fresh Bloom" Release

Hello friends!

I am popping in with a quick post about Simon Says Stamp's latest release "Fresh Bloom".

TULIP COLLAGE Wafer Die s645 Fresh Bloom

This gorgeous die was sent to me by Simon. Lucky me!
you are simply the best-001

It has been a while since I created a shaker card. So, that's what I did with the die.
I created two background for the card front and for the background.
you are simply the best-003

Distress Oxide can be blended so easily and are great for ink-blending.
To add extra interest to the background, I took out the Butterfly Stencil and added a butterfly!
you are simply the best-002

Since I am too cheap to get the Life-Changing Blender Brush Set, I used the regular Ranger Ink applicator for the ink-blending and they worked just fine ( you can call me "sour grape"-LOL).
With practice, I am OK without the fancy brushes.

you are simply the best

I hope you like this fun and colorful shaker card.

Love the little scene you created in the middle!

What a beautiful spring card! Also think the Tulip Collage die would be great to use for an Easter card. In fact, the one you did would be perfect-- same colors and everything.

That Tulip Collage die is so delicate looking. It would be quite versatile. Your card is so lovely. (I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who hasn't purchased the blending brushes for the same reason. They are a tad pricey.) I just got the Tim Holtz small round blending tool not long ago & still haven't been able to do good blending. I keep getting the round edge of it showing, but I'll just keep practicing. Thanks for this post Virginia.
