Simon Says Stamp April Card Kit Reveal, Spotlight Stamping, and a GIVEAWAY!

Hi everyone! Welcome!



This month's kit shouts SUMMER with its bright, beautiful colours and butterflies. 

Here's the card I'm sharing with you today:


I stamped some of the butterflies from the Beautiful Day Stamp Set with Simon's Island Blue Dye Ink onto a piece of Simon's Island Blue Cardstock. I then stamped the same butterflies with MFT Licorice Black Hybrid Ink on to circles die cut from Simon's 120 lb White Cardstock with Simon's Nested Circles Dies. I coloured these butterflies with Copic Markers before adhering them on top of the blue stamped butterflies, being sure to line up the images. I coloured what remained of the blue butterflies with a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker and stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black Ink. I matted the stamped panel with a piece of the white cardstock before adhering it to a piece of the Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow 6x6 Patterned Paper. Finally, I adhered this to a notcard made from Simon's 120 lb Cardstock.



If you're interested, you can pick up the Simon Says Stamp April Card Kit for $34.99 + shipping. If you'd like to receive this kit and future kits for $29.99 + shipping per month, you can SUBSCRIBE HERE.
