Sequin Hello Tree (Simon Says Stamp October 2013 Card Kit)

Hi everyone,

Have you seen the Simon Says Stamp October 2013 Card Kit: Season of Thanks?! It ROCKS!

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Y_ctv9Lys18/UjQHUu6FF9I/AAAAAAAAmBE/V66Uuw0b9kM/s1600/SSS_cardkit_oct13_final.jpg

See what I mean?! Such yummy colors, an adorable stamp set, and fabulous embellishments. I've only had time to make one card so far but I can't wait to play with it some more. :)

Here's my card (sorry about the bad picture...I'm having problems with my flash):


I love the multi-pack of sequins and the fact it includes different sizes (and even some big leaf ones).
I thought it would be fun to use the tree trunk stamp with some of the sequins as leaves. In hind-sight I probably should have left out the blues, but oh well. I like how it turned out. ;)

Supplies:



Sweet Heidi (owner of Simon Says Stamp) has given me an extra October Card Kit to give a way on my blog. Yay! Just leave a comment on any of my 4 Card Kit posts this month and I'll post a winner October 1st.

Thanks for stopping by! I'll have another little something to give away tomorrow morning so be sure to pop on over again. ;)

***ETA: I *just* saw THIS new release by the fabulous Kelly Purkey! Eek! I'm on a bit of a spending freeze but this will likely put me over the edge. ;) ***

Love your tree. Great use of the sequins

Andrea Garland said...

It's genius to but sequins in the tree. Love it.

marylouh said...

I want to make a card using bubble wrap for the background or as part of the main design. As I went by this card again I realized the tree will be the topper over the bubble wrap background. The sequins will set it off (probably using Halloween colors.) thanks so much for the idea. Class is next week and I was starting to get desperate.

Ruth G said...

Wow! What a great idea for the sequins!!! I love it! TFS!
