SSS October Card Kit: Adding Details to Patterned Paper (& GIVEAWAY)!

Hi everyone!

I'm back to share another couple of cards featuring the gorgeous Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit. I mentioned in my last post how much I loved the navy, blush, and copper colour combination featured in the new kit and I enjoyed working with it for today's cards.


For these card I added additional details to some of the My Mind's Eye Blush Patterned Papers in the kit using the Emboss It Pen on it's own, with the pen and embossing powder, and with heat embossing stamped images.


In this first card I added the navy blue centers to the pink flowers by using the Emboss It Pen and the new Simon Says Stamp Steel Navy Embossing Powder. I also created the copper dots around my sentiment with the Emboss It Pen, this time using Hero Arts Copper Embossing Powder. The sentiment from Simon's new Brush Stroke Messages Stamp Set was heat embossed with American Crafts Zing Opaque Blush Embossing Powder and the patterned paper panel was die cut with one of Simon's Wavy Scallop Stitches Dies.




For my second card I die cut this pretty dotted My Mind's Eye Blush Patterned Paper with the rectangle from Simon's Bundle of Stitches Die Set. I heat embossed the sentiment and hearts from the Brush Stroke Messages Stamp Set using Simon's Steel Navy Embossing Powder. The little tone on tone dots on the circles were created with the Emboss It Pen and the tone on tone strips on the navy background were made with the thinnest brushstroke stamp and VersaMark ink.


If you're interested, you can pick up the Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit for just $29.99 + shipping. If you'd like to receive this kit and future kits for only $24.95 + shipping per month, you can SUBSCRIBE HERE.
