10 Cards | 1 Kit – SSS November Card Kit (Part 2 of 2)

Hello hello!

As promised…Part no.2:

and some still shots:

6 front

This is another favorite from the bunch. The picture doesn’t do it justice – that light pink mixed with the white and gold is sheer perfection!

6 inside

That sentiment is so sweet.

7 front

I thought this would be great to leave behind after an overnight stay at a friends house.

7 inside

8 front

I went a little darker on this one. I was really tempted to save this background sheet for a Christmas card, but it matched so perfectly with the tag I had to use it.

8 inside

9 front

You know I couldn’t go a full 10 cards without pulling out the Prismacolors to use on those gorgeous flowers.

9 inside

10 front

I really loved this butterfly sticker. The sticker underneath also had a butterfly, but this one was slightly bigger and I thought it gave it a nice accent by popping it up.

10 inside

Again…I can’t praise this stamp set enough – just the inside statements alone can be used for so may different types of cards.

This kit was stuffed with so many goodies I couldn’t stop at just 10 so I made a few more. (And I still have tons left to share with my nice.) Here are 3 additional cards I came up with:

twelve

I thought this would be really cute to go with baby gift!

10 Cards | 1 Kit – SSS November Card Kit (Part 1 of 2)

Hi-ya!

Just a quick update since some of you might not have watched my last video…

I know I’ve been a bit MIA – I’ve been having a lot of computer issues. In fact my computer crashed 3 times while I was working on that last Thanksgiving card, so I finally gave up and ordered a new one. I’ll have a Christmas series starting in the next few days, but everyone seems to really enjoy the 10 cards videos so I wanted to be sure and share the November kit with you. Especially since this was such a fantastic kit!

Now on to part 1:

Here are some still shots:

1 Front

The stamp set that came in this set is HUGE and the large floral kind stamp is just gorgeous. It makes a great card front just by itself! I had a bit of trouble with my gold embossing powder, so those bumps are totally the fault of that, not the stamp. It was really old though, like we’re talking 10+ years so I picked up some new Recollections powder and it’s working much better.

1 inside

There are so many additional phrases for the inside of the cards too. I used a different one on all 10 cards.

2 front

When I saw those old fashioned busts and that phrase…I just couldn’t resist. This is one of my favorite cards of the bunch.

2 inside

3 front

My ‘k’ got a little nicked because of that old embossing powder, but I’m still happy with the result. I’ll call it shabby chic? That periwinkle background was my favorite paper of the pack.

3 inside -1

That gold heart was the perfect final touch on the inside.

4 inside

Simple and sweet. I love when the kits include matching stickers, just popping up one of those flowers adds so much.

4 front

5 front

What a cozy little cottage, who wouldn’t love to call that home.

5 inside

This was my favorite sentiment of the bunch.

Thanks for stopping by – hope you have a fabulous day! xoxo, Sarah

Here are some close ups:

6 front

I’m loving these Lawn Fawn scalloped dies. I could literally use them on every card.

6 inside

Super simple, but it gets the job done.

6 close up

7 front

Is it me…or do those puffy cloud borders just work on every card?!?

7 close up

8 front

Shaker cards are one of my favorites to make.

8 inside

9 front

These stickers are so pretty – I want 10 more sheets of them.

9 close up

Using dimensionals is a really easy way to make layered stickers look full without being too clumpy.

9 inside

10 front

This girl is super cute – she was my favorite sticker from the bunch!

10 Cards | 1 Kit – Stamptember Card Kit

Hello!

It feels like forever since I’ve talked with you, sorry for the long absence – I had a craft show last Saturday and was working on making stock for it. Anywho I’m back now and sharing with you the part 1 of the cards I made using the Simon Says Stamp – Stamptember Card Kit.

Here are some close ups of the cards:

1 front

That candy cut out ephemera is super cute…

1 inside

and the cut-apart sentiments made finishing off the inside of the cards super simple.

1 close up

Super fun, gorgeous colors!

2 front

I thought this card was really fun, I really liked creating this scene and the holographic boarder gives it that perfect extra something.

2 inside

2 close up

I almost forgot about them, but adding those clouds was the perfect final touch.

3 front

These lawn fawn scalloped borders are becoming one of my new favorites and layering them can add a really detailed look to a super simple card.

3 inside3 close up

I do love my dimension!

4 front

I was so excited when I realized the stickers were the same size as the printed paper. This card really just created itself. I LOOOVE the shaker bubbles, they are super simple and add so much to the design.

4 inside

A single line of bears completes the design.

5 front

Masking is always a super fun way to create a scene, I love pealing away the masks and seeing the design come to life.

5 close up

I can’t find that Martha Stewart confetti for sale anywhere – I’m going to be so sad when I eventually run out of it!

Thanks for stopping by to check out my cards – I’ve got part 2 coming up shortly.

xoxo, Sarah

13 Days of Halloween – Day 10

Hello everyone,

Today I’ve got 3 more cards to share with you using the Simon Says Stamp Halloween Card kit. The kit is sold out but most of the products included are for sale separately – my personal favorite items are the patterned papers and stickers from Pebbles. You can check out the video for my 3 cards here:

Can you tell I really liked those 3 patterned papers they included?!? I’ve stretched them way further than I think I’ve ever stretched 6 x 6 papers before.

Here are some close-up photos:

1 Front

Those stickers were so much fun! At first I wasn’t sure how I was going to use them but when I started playing around with the strips of paper I cut, everything naturally fell together.

1 inside

1 card and envelope

2 front

I made sure to save that “boo crew’ sentiment so it could shine on its own card – so clever.

2 inside

2 card and envelope

3 Front

I had never worked with this foil before and I really enjoyed it. The look isn’t as smooth as you would get using a minc machine, but somehow for Halloween that worked perfectly. I liked having the more ragged edges from using the punch and they stick great, but didn’t go on perfectly smooth, you can tell each circle has been placed individually – they all have their own creases and folds. I have about 1/4 of the sheet left, and may have to invest in some more for future cards…

3 inside

3 card and envelope

all 3

Thanks for stopping by to check out my cards – more Halloween goodness is coming your way tomorrow!

13 Days of Halloween – Day 9

Hello everyone,

Happy Monday? Well we made it through anyways, right? Today I’m struggling through a massive headache, so this is going to be a quick post. I’d like to share with you 2 more cards I made using the Simon Says Stamp Halloween Card kit. I’m really enjoying working with this kit! Here is the video of what I came up with:

And here are some close ups of the finished cards:

1 Card Front1 Inside1 Card and Envelope

I wanted to create a silhouette with just some moon glow on that house and I think the final result worked out really well. This is a really simple design, but one of my favorite in the series so far.

2 Card Front2 Inside2 Card and Envelope

I really like the pop of the orange ink on that white paper, I think it would be really fun to stamp that in some orange pigment ink and emboss it with the glow in the dark powder too. (But I thought of that after I started stamping and hadn’t used any powder on my card base).

I really like that so many stickers were included in this kit. I don’t use them very often on my cards and like pushing myself to try to use more of them.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my cards.

What’s this?!? Another 10 Cards, 1 Kit so soon? Well this girl is ahead of schedule for once yes-sir-ree. I LOVED this Simon Says Stamp Card Kit – rainbows, clouds, sparkles, shakers – what’s not to like?

Card 10:

This card is my second favorite, but it was sooo close. I love the background – and that totally just happened by playing around with the strips of paper. The unicorns are just too cute. I wanted to fill that mason jar with “magic” and thought the Studio Katia sequins were the perfect way to do that. While I was initially disappointed that my kit contained the flower and mason jar instead of the heart and balloon shakers, once I added that baker’s twine around the jar, I loved it.
