Simon Says Stamp Card Set and January Card Kit Winner!

Hi everyone,

I'm stopping by to share a card set I made using some fabulous Simon Says Stamp goodies and to announce the winner of the adorable Simon Says Stamp January 2016 Card Kit.

Here are some the cards from the card set I made as a hostess gift for a family Christmas party:



I made 12 cards total, creating 3 watercoloured backgrounds in each of the 4 colours using Zig Kuretake Gansai Watercolors and Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock. Once dry, I die cut them using the rectangle from Simon's Bundle of Stitches Dies and matted them with Simon's Black Cardstock before adhering them to my notecards on an angle. I used each of the 4 Simon Says Stamp 'painted' sentiment dies shown above 3 times, making sure not to repeat any of the colour/sentiment combinations. I then stamped the little shapes from various Simon Says Stamp stamp sets with Versafine Onyx Black Ink matching each shape to a background colour.

Here are some close ups:







The cards filled up a Clear Bags Crystal Clear Box so I used some pretty ribbon I had on hand to tie some envelopes in place behind the box.

Supplies:






Now to announce the winner of the Simon Says Stamp January 2016 Card Kit...

Very cute card. I never use all the little stamps in sets, I may have to rethink that. Love this collection.
