Decorative Hamsa Die


The card I am sharing today was created by using the Simon Says Stamp Decorative Hamsa die.  It reminds me of Mother Earth and a gods eye at the same time.


I started by creating my background using Distress Oxide inks in Chipped Sapphire, Peacock Feathers and Broken China.  I then sprayed water droplets on my background to make it look a little bit like a galaxy.

I then used the Hamsa Die and cut it out of red, light blue, blue, navy and white Bazzill card stock. I did not use the red in the project, except as a stencil. I placed the die in different spots on the card panel and applied Hero Arts Unicorn White ink over it to create subtle shading in the back ground. I used Be Creative tape and Prisma Glitter to add the shimmery stripes along the sides.  I then sprayed the entire panel with Shimmer Mist.

Then Ibuilt the die cut.  I put down some Creative Time adhesive strips on some scrap card stock and started adding the different die layers. I colored the flower using Copics R20, R22 and R24.  I colored the bottom leaves using YG 05, YG 17 and YG 67.  The top leaves were G17 and G29.

I added the other die cut pieces in no particular order.  I used Copic B24 for some shading.

To assemble, I used the extra border pieces of the Hamsa die sprayed with adhesive on the background,  I then put foam tape on the die and added it to the card panel. I added Hero Arts Sparkly Sequins to the card panel as well.


I then added Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide to my card base.  I put foam tape behind the card panel and added it to my card base.

My sentiment came from Simon Says Stamp Simply Sentiments #1.  When I saw the die, I knew that was going to be my sentiment. I Used WOW detail white embossing powder on the sentiment and Ink on 3 Clear Embossing ink.  I cut it out of a scrap piece of vellum and adhered to my card using clear Kool squares.

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope I have inspired you to try something creative today!
