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

Hello there – hope you’re having a great weekend! We had some crazy wind yesterday, but today we’ve got some lovely sunshine and it really feels like spring. That just happens to be perfect weather to share my 10 Cards, 1 Kit using the Simon Says Stamp March Card Kit with you. It is sold out but you can still see all contents and purchase any items you might be interested in individually. I LOVED THIS KIT…so let’s get started:

Here are your close-ups:

1close

I thought of this card as soon as I watched the unboxing video. I knew I wanted to make some sort of a seed packet and I think this worked out pretty great. I couldn’t really add that sound in the video, but adding the seed beads inside really gives it some extra fun.

1closeclose

I really love the paper and stickers from Carte Bella, I pretty much used all of mine by the end of the videos and I’m thinking about grabbing some more for my stash.

1inside

This was my favorite sentiment of the kit – it’s so encouraging!

2

This bunny is adorable and that pompom really takes it to the next level. I know I’ll use this on lots of spring cards in the years to come.

2close

I was obsessed with The Velveteen Rabbit when I was little – I had one of those kits where the book came with a cd that read it to you and I think I wore it out. I was thinking of that when I was coloring this guy and wondering where that got to.

2inside

I kept trying to add that carrot on the front with the bunny and I just couldn’t make it look right – a few on the inside was a much better option.

3

It’s hard to choose a favorite from this bunch, but if I HAD to choose, this would be it.

3inside close

Love the flowers, love the sentiment.

3inside

I toted with maybe adding some window panes to this but in the end, decided less was more and I’m glad I did.

4

I’m making it a goal of mine to try to make some more masculine cards this year – I know that the black paper has the names of flowers on it but this could be used as a thank you for a gift of flowers. Or you could also substitute out a plain black or gray paper too.

4 close

That script die is soooo pretty – It works on just about any type of thank you card.

4inside

I was worried that yellow wasn’t going to show up bright enough, but on that cream cardstock I only had to stamp it once and I think it’s very “readable”.

5

So pretty – I think anyone would be happy to receive this thank you card.

5close

The sentiments in this stamp set were really great – I love all the different ways to mix and match them to say thank you.

5inside

And that will finish us up for today. As always thanks for stopping by to check out my cards. xoxo, Sarah

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

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

Super simple, but it gets the job done.

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

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

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
