simon says stamp - parental props goes dotty


Have you seen the latest SSS release, Celebrate You? I think my favorite item from the whole release is the Confetti Stencil. So simple, but packs a punch. I was lucky to receive a stamp set from CZ Design to play with, Parental Props.

I don't know exactly what Cathy intended with those dots, but polka dots are always good in my book. I revisited a design I'd used a bit ago. Can you see what I did for my background?

Distress inks and oxides
white embossing powder

No. You probably can't. Looks like a hot mess you say? Let me tell ya what I did. I used two strips of painter's tape to mark off triangular shaped areas on the cardbase. Then I used the line of solid circles to stamp a polka dot design in the area. Then I marked off another area and used another color to stamp that triangular area. Get it? I like the play of inks and oxides for transparency and opacity. I used the outline circles with black to add more interest.

I was actually going to keep it one layer. But the slender sentiment got lost in the midst of all those dots so I heat embossed it and popped it up in the center.


So check out the release if you haven't, and all the makes with it in the gallery at Simon Says Stamp. I'll have a few more makes for you with this stamp set. Thanks mucho, Simon.

I'm playing at:
SSS Wednesday Challenge - Stitches
CAS on Sunday - Polka Dots (I couldn't resist though this might not really be CAS)
Creative Friday - For a Man

Have to tell you it's been a long time since I really wanted to buy some things from Simon Says Stamp, but this release has been really good - seen this stencil so much and it's so good! Love what you've done with it. xx
