Simon Says Stamp May 2013 Card Kit: May Flowers

Have you seen it?!?! The new Simon Says Stamp card kit for May has *just* been revealed! Whoo hoo! It's called May Flowers and although the stamp set "Best Mom Ever" is geared towards Mother's Day, there is SO much in this kit that also works well for dads, anniversaries, thank yous, and so much more. The colors in this month's kit are fabulous too! Wonderful muted pinks, greens, and browns. I've been having a ton of fun playing with it and could not wait to start sharing the projects I've been making.

Here's a look at the kit:


Here's the first card I'm sharing:

For this card I focused on the beautiful Fancy Die Cut and Embossed Card Front that comes in the kit. First, I adhered some patterned paper followed by vellum (to soften the look) onto my note card. I then adhered the Fancy Die Cut and Embossed Card Front on top. I heat embossed the large flower on Neenah white cardstock and used my finger to rub some of the Petal Pink Liquid Pearls all over it. Once dried, I added some leaves that were heat embossed on some of the patterned paper from the kit. I finished things off by adding more liquid pearls to the centers of all the little embossed flowers.

Here are the links to all the products I used (the 1st 8 links are to items included in the kit):


If you're not a Simon Says Stamp card kit subscriber and you're thinking you might want to try this one out don't hesitate! The last two months' card kits sold out rather quickly!

Here's a link to Card Kit of the Month Questions and Answers in case you're wondering how it all works.

I'll be sharing more projects using the Simon Says Stamp May card kit throughout the week. As always, sweet Heidi, owner of Simon Says Stamp, has given me an extra card kit to give away! Yay! Just leave a comment on any of my card kit posts this week (I'm thinking there will be 4) for your chance to win! I'll post a winner next week Monday, April 22nd.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Wonderful card. Love how you have used the circle opening at the bottom (my first impulse would be to place it at the top). Interesting how you've used the liquid pearls on the rose. Thanks for the inspiration!

Great use of texture! That embossed panel provides enough visual interest without distracting from the beautiful focal point of the flower.

I can't wait to get my hands on one of these kits. I am in love with all the roses.
That precut card base looks like alot of fun too. Especially for those of us with few die cut embossing options. Thanks for sharing
