SSS April Card Kit: Simply the Best, GIVEAWAY, and Copic Sale

Hi everyone! 

I'm popping by to share another card featuring the fabulous Simon Says Stamp April Card Kit: Beautiful Day!


Here it is:


For this card I decided to focus on Simon's new Butterflies Stencil. I used it with the Mermaid Lagoon and Squeezed Lemon Distress Oxide Inks, adding it to a piece of Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow 6x6 Patterned Paper with the new Distress Blending Brush. I added some depth with Prismacolor Coloured Pencils, added a strip of another piece of the patterned paper, and adhered it to some of Simon's Doll Pink Cardstock. Finally I stamped the sentiment from Simon's new Beautiful Day Stamps with Versafine Onyx Black Ink onto a green piece of the Lawn Fawn papers.


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.

I do love the cheerful colors in this kit. Your card is darling! I Love the stenciled butterflies over the "notebook paper". I'm guessing that's included in the kit? A great look! Darling inspiration here this morning Sarah. Thanks for the chance to win!
