SSS April Card Kit: Baby Cards (& Giveaway)

Hi everyone! 

I'm stopping by to share a couple of baby cards featuring the adorable Simon Says Stamp April 2017 Card Kit: Wild and Colorful

Both of these cards have the same look and used the same technique but started out with different bases: one colored and one white.



The blue card was the first of the two I made. I white heat embossed the images on Simon's Island Blue Cardstock. I then took a Mini Ink Blending Tool and Simon's White Pigment Ink and added white to the bottom of the panel, easing up on the colour as I moved up to center of the card.



This second card was made after I had taken pictures of the first one and started my blog post. I realized that even though the April Card Kit didn't include any pink or red cardstock it did include a deep pink/ light red ink. So... I started this card with a white card base, white heart embossed the images, and applied Simon's Watermelon Hybrid Ink beginning at the top and easing off as I worked my way down.


For both cards I die cut letters from Simon's Alphabet Blocks Dies to spell 'baby', adhering them to Simon's Island Blue Cardstock for the baby boy card and a piece of inked up Neenah Solar White Cardstock for the baby girl card. These sentiment panels were then adhered to the cards with Foam Tape.
