SSS August Card Kit: A Special Gift & GIVEAWAY!

Hi everyone!

I'm back to share another card featuring the beautiful new Simon Says Stamp August Card Kit

Here's a look inside:


Here's today's card:


I stamped the gorgeous floral image from Simon's new Mandy's Flower Stamp Set onto a piece of the BoBunny Early Bird 6x6 Papers and coloured it with Prismacolor Pencils. I then used my Craft Pick to make little holes for me to thread the May Arts Natural Twine through so I could tie it around the jar. I adhered this stamped panel, some Tonic Powder Blue Lace Luxury Embossed Paper, and a thin strip of BoBunny Early Bird Paper to a notecard made from Simon's 120 lb White Cardstock. I white heat embossed a sentiment from the Mandy's Flower Stamp Set onto to back side of one of the patterned papers and added Black Soot Distress Ink with an Ink Blending Tool before adhering it to my card.

Here's a look inside:


Here's the card I'm sharing today featuring BOTH of the gorgeous stamp sets found in the August Card Kit:


I heat embossed the beautiful Modern Rose Blooms Background Stamp with Hero Arts White Satin Pearl Embossing Powder on Simon's 120 lb White Cardstock. I stamped the floral frame and sentiment from Mandy's Flowers Stamp Set onto the back of one of the patterned papers from the kit I knew I wouldn't be using with MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. I coloured this with Copic Markers, cut it out, and adhered it to my card front with foam tape. I finished the card off with some of the Tonic Bubblegum Blush Gloss Nuvo Drops.

SSS Layered Flaps Card

Hi everyone!

Happy Monday!

I'm back after a hot week of church Family Camp in Michigan. We had a great speaker, the kids had fun fishing and swimmming, and I managed to get a little crafting in too. 

Today I'm sharing an interative card featuring the fun new Simon Says Stamp Perforated Flaps Dies and Playful Messages Stamps along with Simon's Center Cut Heart Background Stamp.


I stamped Simon's Cotton Candy Cardstock with their Center Cut Heart Stamp using their Rosie Cheeks Dye Ink before diecutting it with the largest of the Perforated Flaps Dies. I stamped the center heart on Neenah White Cardstock with MFT's Black Licorice Hybrid Ink, coloured it with Copics, cut it out, and adhered it in place with foam tape.


The second layer features Bazzill's Cotton Candy Cardstock which was diecut with the second largest Perforated Flaps Die. The sentiment from Simon's Playful Messages and hearts from the Cute Snowflakes Stamp Set were white heat embossed.


For the third layer I die cut Bazzill's Candy Hearts Cardstock with the smallest Perforated Flaps DieI stamped the Center Cut Heart Stamp on Neenah White Cardstock, colouring and cutting out some of the smaller hearts to use on this final flap.I also added a few heat embossed hearts.


Underneath the final flap is a piece of Simon's Schoolhouse Red Cardstock with another white heat embossed sentiment from the Playful Messages Stamp Set and hearts from the Cute Snowflakes Set.


I found it helpful to use a craft knife to go over all the perforated areas before assembling the layers. This made it easier to open each flap without tearing the cardstock.




This was such a fun card to make! I can see myself recreating it with a gift card, cash, and confetti for a birthday. In fact, my second son's birthday is later this week and all he's asking for is money, lol. This might be just be a fun way to present it!

Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog and for the sweet comments left. Special thanks to those of you who make use of my affialate links and support me in that way.

Hope you have a great week!

SSS Deco Diamonds Card Set & July Card Kit Winner

Hi everyone!

I'm back today to share a card set featuring the Simon Says Stamp Deco Diamonds Background Stamp and also annouce the winner of the Simon Says Stamp July Card Kit

For today's card set I stamped the Deco Diamonds Background Stamp on five 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch panels of White Neenah Cardstock with MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink and coloured them with monochromatic colours of Copic Markers. I then cut each panel to use on two cards. Matching cardstock was stamped with Simon Says Stamp background stamps (see supply list at the end of this post) with either VersaMark or coordinating coloured ink. The card fronts were then asembled with a thin strip of matching cardstock seperating the two stamped sides. I white heat embossed the sentiments from the Simon Says Stamp Brush Stroke Messages onto Simon's Black Cardstock and finished the cards off with enamel dots.
