SSS April 2017 Card Kit with Spotlighting (& Giveaway)

Hi everyone!

My Simon Says Stamp April 2017 Card Kit: Wild and Colorful arrived yesterday and I had a chance to start playing with it this morning.

Here's what I came up with using this adorable kit:



I did some spotlighting by having all the stamped colour on the Kraft Mini Tag. The cute elephant was stamped on some of the yummy Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Rainbow 6x6 Paper and paper pieced. For the hearts, I directly inked Neenah Solar White Cardstock with Simon's Fresh Fruit Hybrid Inks. I then stamped the outline hearts over the inked cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black Ink, cut them out, and added them to the tag. I colored in 'WILD THING' with a Prismacolor White Colored Pencil and then went over it and the hearts with a Zig Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker.

If you're interested, you can pick up the Simon Says Stamp April 2017 Card Kit: Wild and Colorful 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.

Heidi, owner of Simon Says Stamp, has given me an extra Simon Says Stamp April 2017 Card Kit to pass on to one of you! Just leave a comment on any or all of my April 2017 Card Kit posts and I'll announce a winner Wednesday, March 29th.

I don't usually do too many "cute" cards, but this is just as charming as can be. It may be that plaid is "my favorite color," ;-) but there are so many wonderful things going on. You showed off the kit nicely and I'm looking forward to more creations. Besides, you can never go wrong with kraft, bright aqua & yummy ink colors.

Love the vivid colors & that sweet plaid elephant! Spotlighting on the Kraft tag is such a clever idea. I forget about using Kraft as I automatically reach for white. Thanks for the inspiration!

Kathy said...

This is so adorable, Sarah! Love the bright fun colors and all the little extras, but it was the elephant that captured my heart (and smile)! The offset stamping rocks---thanks for the inspiration.
