Simon Says Stamp August Card Kit: I Miss You, GIVEAWAY, and sales!

Hi everyone!

I'm back to share another card using the fun-filled Simon Says Stamp August Card Kit: Seeing Stars and also to let you know that Simon has a couple of AMAZING sales going on right now!

First here are the fabulous deals going on at Simon Says Stamp:




Ok. Back to Simon's jam-packed August Card Kit:


Here's my card for today:



I die cut a piece of the white hexagon-patterned Tim Holtz Mofit Cardstock with one of Simon's Stitched Rectangles Dies. I then used a number of Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and the Small Watercolor Brush Pen from another of Simon's recent Card Kits and coloured in the hexagons. I white heat embossed the sentiment and a small star from the Seeing Stars Stamp Set onto Simon's Soft Navy Cardstock, trimmed it, and adhered it to my dry hexagon panel. Using Foam Tape, I adhered the panel to a piece of Simon's 120 lb White Cardstock before adhering it to a kraft arrows-patterned piece of the Tim Holtz Mofit Cardstock cut down to fit my card front. Finally, I embellished the card with some stars cut from Simon's Holiday Shapes Dies and Large Holiday Shapes Dies.

If you're interested, you can pick up the Simon Says Stamp August 2016 Card Kit for just $29.95 + shipping. If you'd like to receive this kit and future kits for only $24.95 + shipping per month, you can SUBSCRIBE HERE.

Simon Says Stamp August Card Kit Reveal Day & Giveaway!

Hi everyone!

Today is reveal day for the Simon Says Stamp August Card Kit: Seeing Stars!


This month's kit is LOADED with crafty goodness: a fabulous star-themed stamp set called Seeing Stars, some Pebble Americana Patterned Papers, Tim Holt Motif Resist Papers, Simon's Vented Star Die, Simon's Fireworks Stencil, as well as Tim Holtz Festive Berries and Chipped Sapphire Mini Distress Inks! Oh, and I almost forgot... 4 sheets of Simon's yummy cardstock! This month's kit is just perfect for all sorts of techniques!

Here's the first card I'm sharing using Simon's August Card Kit:


I took a piece of the Tim Holtz White Woodgrain Mofit Resist paper, cut it down to 4.25" by 5.5", and ink blended the Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink over the entire panel. As you can see, there are areas that resist the ink! I then used Simon's Stitched Rectangle Dies to die cut a piece of Simon's Soft Navy Cardstock as well as their White Cardstock. I used Simon's Fireworks Stencil with the Festive Berries Distress Ink on the White Cardstock and then stamped an image from Simon's Seeing Stars Stamp Set over it with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I coloured the heart in with one of my Copic Markers before covering it with Glossy Accents. Once dry, I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and pieced the card together.

If you're interested, you can pick up the Simon Says Stamp August 2016 Card Kit for just $29.95 + shipping. If you'd like to receive this kit and future kits for only $24.95 + shipping per month, you can SUBSCRIBE HERE.
