Simon Says Stamp March 2014 Card Kit: Rainbow of Color! ...(and a GIVEAWAY)!

Hi everyone!

Today is release day for the Simon Says Stamp March 2014 Card Kit: Rainbow of Color! Whoo hoo!

http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfm?B=199868&U=650450&M=24698&urllink=www.simonsaysstamp.com/servlet/the-65584/march-rainbow-of-color/Detail

This month's kit just ROCKS! It includes a fun stamp set with great images and sentiments in a wonderful font. The word 'color/colour' is provided in both spellings for us non-Americans. (Thanks Kristina)! The Lawn Fawn patterned papers are yummy, the Kelly Purkey alpha stickers vibrant, the rainbow stencil adorable, and the sequins sparkly. There's also some wonderful coral Lawn Fawn twine...a whole roll! This kit is such a great deal at $24.95 + shipping for non-subscribers and $19.95 + shipping for subscribers. I have a feeling this one will sell out fast!

I've had a chance to make a couple of cards and I can't wait to play some more. Here's card number 1:


For this first card I used the Simon Says Stamp Rainbow Stencil with Versamark ink and various colors of embossing powder. I really wanted the colours to pop against the grey background. I used a dauber to apply the ink for one color of powder at a time, heat setting in between so the powders wouldn't mix. I don't have a yellow embossing powder so I used white and coloured over it with a alcohol marker. I did the same thing for the sun's rays (the sun is from the Simon Says Stamp Color and Sunshine stamp set). I just couldn't resist adding some googly eyes from my stash. :)

Supplies:

Card number 2:




This card is pretty self-explanatory. I stamped the crayon image (a favourite of mine!) on a number of the Lawn Fawn papers and cut them out before adhering them on my card.

Supplies:


Before I go, I have a giveaway for you thanks to sweet Heidi of Simon Says Stamp! Just leave a comment on any or all of my Simon Says Stamp March 2014 Card Kit posts by next Thursday night (February the 20th) and I'll announce a winner on the 21st!

I MIGHT have thought to put googly eyes on the sun, but the ones on the rainbow cracked me up. The crayon card is nice, too. One of the many good things about both is that they can be sent to males or females of any age. Well done!
