Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit with DIY Patterned Background (& GIVEAWAY!)

Hi everyone!

My Simon Says Stamp February 2016 Card Kit arrived yesterday and I jumped right into making some cards with it.

Here's the first one, using Simon's Hello Beautiful Stamp Set from the kit along with the MISTI. (It really IS the Most Incredible Stamping Tool Invented! I never would have been able to get all these heart circles lined up without it.)



After stamping the image repeatedly with Memento Tuxedo Black Dye Ink, I coloured each row in with a different shade of red Copic Marker. (I was inspired by the Crate Paper Hello Love Stickers that came in this month's kit). I die cut the panel using the rectangle from Simon's Bundle of Stitches Dies and adhered it to a notecard made from Simon's Cotton Candy Cardstock. I then white heat embossed the sentiment on a strip of Simon's Black Cardstock and adhered it to the card.

That's a lot of stamping! WOW, and it looks fantastic! The Misti is an incredible tool! I love the ombre effect you've made here - it's beautiful! I've never had a Simon kit but have always wanted one, just not in the budget. One day I will have one!
