Simon Says Stamp September Card Kit Reveal and GIVEAWAY!

Hi everyone!

Today is reveal day for the 
Simon Says Stamp September 2015 Card Kit



This month's kit includes a number of fun products including Simon's new Birthday Bits Stamp SetPinkFresh Studio Happy Things Acetate CardsDina Wakley Ranger White Gesso Tube, and Simon's Playful Circles stencil which is exclusie to the kit.


For today's card I decided to use some of the fun techniquey (that's a word right?) products that came in this month's kit. I started with the Simon Says Stamp Playful Circles Stencil from the kit along with some of Simon's Scuba Ink and a Round Ink Blending Tool to create the geometric background on Simon's Audrey Blue Cardstock. The geometric shapes found in the bottom left corner of the new Simon Says Stamp Birthday Bits Stamp Set are a perfect match to the shapes in the stencil. I used the striped shapes along with Simon's Scuba Ink to add interest to some of the stenciled circles and triangles. I then diecut the panel with one of Simon's Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to my card front. I then took one of the Happy Things Patterned Acetate Cards from PinkFresh Studios and smeared some of the Dina Wakley White Gesso on the back of it with the Ranger Pallet Knife. Once dried, I stamped my sentiment on the front using Ranger's Jet Black Archival Ink and let that dry as well before adhering the panel to my card.

NOTE: I had planned on using Stazon Black ink for my stamping but my ink has dried out and I need to buy a refill. The Archival Ink seems to be holding up ok but if I really rub it with my finger it does smear slightly.
