SSS July Card Kit: You Are My Favorite (& GIVEAWAY)

Hi everyone!

My Simon Says Stamp July 2016 Card Kit arrived late last week and I found some pockets of time to play with it over a busy weekend. Just what I needed to decompress. :)

This kit has such a great colour combination and the stamp set is just gorgeous! I wanted to focus on those two elements for today's clean and simple card:


First, I die cut a piece of Simon's 120 lb White Cardstock using one of the rectangles from Simon's Stitched Rectangles Dies and then with Simon's You Are My Favorite Die. I then cut a piece of Slate Gray Cardstock slightly larger than this panel. I used the large flower and leaves from Simon's Handwritten Floral Greetings Stamps along with my Misti Stamping Tool to first stamp the images on the Slate Gray Cardstock with the Slate Hybrid Ink. Next, I positioned the die cut panel and re-stamped the images using the Goldenlocks Hybrid Ink. I adhered the white panel over the slate cardstock so that the images lined up. I added a few stamped dots from the Handwritten Floral Greetings Stamp Set and adhered the finished panel to a card base created from Simon's Lemon Chiffon Cardstock.

If you're interested, you can pick up the Simon Says Stamp July 2016 Card Kit 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.
