I'm finally able to start sharing some cards featuring the beautiful Simon Says Stamp July Card Kit: Cool Summer!
The July Card Kit has been so much fun to play with!
For today's cards I used my T Ruler and a pencil to create a tempory grid on the white cardstock sized to fit the solid circle image from the One Cool Pineapple Stamp Set. A gap was left between the 4th and 5th rows for sentiments.
I used 5 colours of ink for each card and, like a Sudoku puzzle, used each colour only once per column and row. Creating the grid allowed me to stamp all the circles in one colour before moving on to the next colour. I also used Hero Arts Stamp Cleaner between colours so I wouldn't have to worry about colours mixing.
I used the rectangle from Simon's Bundle of Stitches to die cut my stamped panels, adhering them to notecards made from Simon's Doll Pink, Island Blue, and Green Leaf Cardstock.
The Hello and Beautiful sentiments (as well as the larger butterflies) are from the American Crafts Amy Tangerine Sunshine and Good Times Sticker Book and the Happy Birthday was masked from the Fishing You a Happy Birthday Sentiment from this month's stamp set.
The Amy Tangerine Mini Icon Sunshine and Good Times Puffy Stickers fit perfectly in the stamped circles.
