...We ALL Scream For Ice Cream!!! (Simon Says Stamp August 2014 Card Kit Part 2 & GIVEAWAY!)

Hi everyone!

I'm back with a couple more cards using the Simon Says Stamp August 2014 Card Kit and as promised I've used the frozen treat images as they were meant to be used. :)



Before I get started with my cards I just have a reminder that you can pick up the August 2014 card kit HERE for just $24.95 + shipping. Or if you’d like to receive this kit and future kits for only $19.95 + shipping per month, you can SUBSCRIBE HERE.

I also have an extra Simon Says Stamp August 2014 Card Kit to give away thanks to sweet Heidi, owner of Simon Says Stamp! Just leave a comment on either of my August 2014 Card Kit posts by the end of Wednesday July 23rd and I'll announce a winner on the 24th. 


Here are today's cards:


For my first card, I paper-pieced the popsicles using some of the patterned paper from this month's card kit. I then went over the "edible" parts with Glossy Accents.


For my second card, I stamped everything with Versafine ink on the piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock that comes with the kit before clear heat embossing (I used the smooth side). I then used Tim Holtz Distress Markers to add color and my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Marker for some blending. I've got to tell you, I LOVE the Tim Holtz Watercolor Cardstock. This was my first time using it and I will be ordering more. I had no problems with pilling or blending. Before mounting my watercolored panel on my card, I took the card base (made from the Simon Says Stamp Orange Peel Cardstock) and stamped the dotted border stamp along the top and bottom for a tone on tone effect.
