Simon Says Stamp November Card Kit: Thanks & Leaves Reveal & Giveaway!

Hi everyone!

Today is reveal day for the Simon Says Stamp November Card Kit: Thanks & Leaves!


This month's kit is about sending thanks (& a bit of snark) and includes Simon's beautiful new Thanks and Leaves Stamp Set with wonderful sentiments and leaf images. Also included is a package of stunning Idea-ology Butterflies, Idea-ology's Snarky Small Talk Stickers, Simon's Bronze Sequins, as well as some tags, envelopes, and cardstock from Simon Says Stamp.

Here's the card I made to share today using all the elements found in this month's kit except for the Snarky Small Talk Stickers. I'll show a card in a future blog post using one of these stickers minus the snark. ;)


For this card I adhered some of Simon's Green Leaf and Orange Peel Cardstock to a notecard made from Simon's Ivory Cardstock. I then adhered Simon's 4 Bar Kraft Envelope to the front (faced down) with some of the leaf images stamped on the flap with Simon's Barely Beige Ink. I adhered the tag in place and stamped the sentiment with Simon's Green Leaf Ink.



The butterfly and sequins were adhered with Ranger's Multi-Medium Matte in such a way that the envelope could still be opened to include a gift card, cash, or longer letter then could be written in a card.

Such a clever use of the smaller envelope on this card.

I was wondering how best to use those smaller envelopes as I never make cards that’s small. Thank you for a great idea.

WOW Sarah, colourful, fun,lots of pieces from the kit. I love how you've used all these bits, I would not have ever thought of that. The colours flow so nicely. Although in the UK we don't celebrate Autumn the chance to thank friends for being friends is fabulous.
