Simon Says Stamp "Celebrate You" BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY




Hello everyone! Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Blossoms and Butterflies release Blog Hop! You can check Day one here. Also, make sure you read until the end if you want to know how to participate in a giveaway!

¡Hola a todos! Bienvenidos al segundo día del blog hop celebrando la colección de Simon Says Stamp "Blossoms and Butterflies". Podéis ver el día one aquí. Además, os recomiendo leer hasta el final para conocer todos los detalles y cómo participar en un sorteo.

DAD AND MOM THANK YOU CARDS


I often get asked to make cards with more "masculine colors", so I decided to use the stamp set " " to create a thank you card for dads (and then another one for moms).

Muchas veces me piden que haga alguna tarjeta con colores "más masculinos", así que he decidido usar el set de sellos " " para crear una tarjeta de agradecimiento para padres (y después otra para madres).


To create the pattern on the background I decided to use Distress Oxide Inks. I didn't get a perfect image each time, but that's exactly what I was looking for, I like the "distressed" look I got :). 

Para hacer el fondo de las tarjetas he usado tintas Distress Oxide. No he conseguido una imagen perfecta, pero eso es precísamente lo que buscaba. Me gusta el "look" imperfecto que he conseguido :). 



For the mom version of the card I used softer colors and I have a feeling that it looks a bit "vintage". I wasn't looking for that, but I also like it. 

Para la versión de mamá he usado colores más suaves y me da la sensación de que he conseguido  un estilo "vintage". No era lo que buscaba, pero también me gusta. 

You can see how I made this cards in the video below (or watch at my Youtube channel).

Podéis ver cómo he hecho la tarjeta en el vídeo de aquí abajo (o podéis verlo en mi canal de Youtube).

    LOVE your circle / dotty backgrounds and sentiments ... they're ALL great stamps! LOVE your design and video too ... although it is so frustrating when things go wrong, I confess it was nice to see others have "oops" moments ... I've had this happen to me too, even with my panel wedged firmly in the corner, so maybe it wasn't as firm as I thought ... sigh ...
    THANK YOU for sharing and INSPIRING :)
