Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit: Hang in There Card

Hi everyone!

I'm back today with my second card using the Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit: Style of Love.

 *Simon Says Stamp Card Kit of the Month FEBRUARY 2013 STYLE OF LOVE

Let's get right to it! Here's my card:


I used the wonderful modern flower in the stamp set and paper pieced it, using foam adhesive between the layers. To create the leaves I inked up one of the subtle patterned papers and die cut it twice with one of the Simon Says Stamp Large Hearts dies. I then used a black marker to define the edges and tucked them behind the flower so the pointy parts stuck out. I try and challenge myself with these kits to not use anything that's not included in the kit other than inks and other tools. All the stamps, papers, and embellishments are included in the kit. I think it forces me to try and be more creative (as with the leaves) and also gives you all a better idea of what you can do with just the kit and a few tools. :) I think the rest of the card is self-explanatory but feel free to send me an email if you have any questions.

Supplies:



I hope you'll join me tomorrow for this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge and again Thursday and Friday to see what else I've created with February's Card Kit. Remember to comment on my Card Kit posts because sweet Heidi has generously given me a February Card Kit to give away!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
