Simon Says Stamp August Card Kit Reveal Day & Giveaway!

Hi everyone!

Today is reveal day for the Simon Says Stamp August Card Kit: Seeing Stars!


This month's kit is LOADED with crafty goodness: a fabulous star-themed stamp set called Seeing Stars, some Pebble Americana Patterned Papers, Tim Holt Motif Resist Papers, Simon's Vented Star Die, Simon's Fireworks Stencil, as well as Tim Holtz Festive Berries and Chipped Sapphire Mini Distress Inks! Oh, and I almost forgot... 4 sheets of Simon's yummy cardstock! This month's kit is just perfect for all sorts of techniques!

Here's the first card I'm sharing using Simon's August Card Kit:


I took a piece of the Tim Holtz White Woodgrain Mofit Resist paper, cut it down to 4.25" by 5.5", and ink blended the Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink over the entire panel. As you can see, there are areas that resist the ink! I then used Simon's Stitched Rectangle Dies to die cut a piece of Simon's Soft Navy Cardstock as well as their White Cardstock. I used Simon's Fireworks Stencil with the Festive Berries Distress Ink on the White Cardstock and then stamped an image from Simon's Seeing Stars Stamp Set over it with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I coloured the heart in with one of my Copic Markers before covering it with Glossy Accents. Once dry, I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and pieced the card together.
