Create Together with Marcie Sharp (and Simon's Card Kit Winner Announced)

Hi everyone!

Happy Wednesday! Today I'm stopping by to share a card I made for Marcie Sharp's Create Together Challenge. I'm so honoured she asked me to play along with her this week! We've decided our theme would be TRIANGLES!

If you've followed my little blog for any length of time you know that I LOVE geometrics and also background stamps. It should come as little surprise that Simon's new Abstract Triangles Stamp is one my favourites from their STAMPtember release.

Here's the card I made for today's challenge:

I started the card by white heat embossing Simon's Abstract Triangles Stamp on Simon's 120 lb White Cardstock and die cutting it with the rectangle from Simon's Bundle of Stitches Dies. I then masked off some of the stripes in the pattern and added some distress inks with a Mini Ink Blending Tool to create my base of colours. From there I built up additional colour with my Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors. I white heat embossed the sentiment from Simon's You Matter Stamps on their Black Cardstock and embellished with some My Mind's Eye Hooray Puffy Stickers and Doodlebug Primary Enamel Dots. I adhered the final panel to a notecard made from Simon's Slate Cardstock.

Before I go I wanted to announce the winner of the Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit.

The winner is...

Lynne in NI who said...

Beautiful card, I love the colours in this kit :)

Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit: Nuts About You (& GIVEAWAYS)!

Hi everyone!

I'm back to share a final card made using the Simon Says Stamp October 2016 Card Kit and to remind you about a couple of giveaways I have going on.
Here's today's card:

For this card I stamped a bunch of the small images from Simon's Nutty Over You Stamps onto their Burnt Orange Cardstock with the cube of Ranger's Bright Tangelo Archival Ink to create a tone on tone effect. I die cut a heart using one of Simon's Nested Hearts Dies and stamped the sentiment and the large squirrel. I then stamped the same squirrel onto a larger solid stamp to create a mirror image before stamping it onto my card. It was difficult to get a good impression with the squirrel being solid so I coloured both squirrels with a Warm Gray Copic Marker. I then stamped some greenery and berries and gave the squirrels a Little B Acorns Mini Sticker to share. I finished the card off with strips of Simon's Dark Chocolate Cardstock and Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Fall 6x6 Paper.

If you're interested, you can pick up the Simon Says Stamp October 2016 Card Kit for just $29.95 + shipping. If you'd like to receive this kit and future kits for only $24.95 + shipping per month, you can SUBSCRIBE HERE.

Heidi, owner of Simon Says Stamp, has given me an extra October 2016 Card Kit to pass on to one of you! Just leave a comment on any or all of my October Card Kit posts and I'll announce a winner Wednesday September 28th.
