Simon Says Stamp January Card Kit and GIVEAWAY!!!

Hi everyone!

Today is release day for the Simon Says Stamp January Card Kit...and it's another GREAT one!



You can pick up the Simon Says Stamp January Card Kit HERE for just $29.95 + shipping. If you'd like to receive this kit and future kits for only $24.95 + shipping per month, you can SUBSCRIBE HERE. (Note the change in price effective this month due to the increase in awesome products included).

This month's kit is another wonderful technique-based one...with Ranger's Perfect Pearls taking center stage! The kit includes Ranger's Grape Fizz Perfect Pearls, a Perfect Pearls Brush, and a Mini-Mister. Oh, and Simon's White Pigment Ink (also in the kit) will hold the Perfect Pearls in place beautifully as seen in this card:


As I mentioned above, I stamped the 'thanks snow much' sentiment using Simon's White Pigment Ink. (I LOVE the handwritten font used in this month's stamp set!) I then added some of the Grape Fizz Perfect Pearls and gently brushed away the extra with the Perfect Pearls Brush. I then set it by spritzing some water in the air and waving the cardstock through it. I'm not sure if I really needed to do this step since I used pigment ink but I figured it couldn't hurt.I die cut my top panel from some paper from the Bo Bunny 6x6 Altitude Paper Pad using Simon's new Stitched Circles Dies as well as the frame from their Bundle of Stitches die set. I then adhered part of a Hero Arts Acetate Card to the back of my circular window, followed by foam adhesive along the edges and on other areas of the back of the patterned paper. Before I added some of the little snowflakes from the Bo Bunny Altitude Die Cuts inside my window to create my shaker element, I went over the acetate with my powder tool to help keep the snowflakes from sticking to it. Once I had everything put together I added a few more of the snowflakes to the outside of my card.

***NOTE: My card kit was one of the ones to receive the Bo Bunny Altitude Die Cuts instead of the Bo Bunny Altitude Sticker***

Supplies:

Great card! This looks like a fun kit.

Rebecca Ednie said...

FYI you do need to set the perfect pearls even when using pigment ink. It will seem to stick but any handling will wipe it away. Not totally but enough to ruin the look. I was making sour cream container wedding favours and I learned the hard way to set them! Your card is so pretty!
