Hope the new year is treating everyone well! Today I’m sharing with you the first half of my 10 Cards, 1 Kit for the January Simon Says Stamp Card Kit. I had so much fun with this kit and I LOOOVE the stamp set. At first, I wasn’t sure about those block word stamps, but once I stamped them out I wanted to use them on everything!
Here’s the video of what I came up with:
Here are some stills of the final cards:
These envelopes are so cute. Originally I thought I’d put those small cut-outs inside them, but it was too difficult to maneuver them in and out so I decided to glue them on top instead.
These stamps are wonderful. That scripty font and the subtle heart in the tail of the y. Love it!
I did some embellishment on the envelopes that came in the kit too but didn’t video it because of the time. I’ll share more detailed photos of those in the next post.
That stripe of cut-a-parts makes for such an easy card front. I wanted to add just a touch more with that sweet sentiment and help it pop with that outline of red.
I rarely go to pigment inks, but that Delicata pink ink is fabulous.
Don’t you just love that mint and pink combo?
Or a mint and black combo for that matter. I’ll take all the mint I can get lately.
Again that script is just so pretty and I thought that line of xoxox was a nice accent.
The cut-a-parts in this paper pack are really great. I’d like to get one of the 12 x 12 scrapbook sheets to cut apart for larger cards too.
I originally planned to stamp those words on white and then back them with red and pink but decided it would be too bulky. Ultimately I’m happy with the design but I think I would have liked the letters in white better.
Sweet and simple inside…xoxo says it all.
Those MFT windows are a super easy way to make a shaker card. If you’re tired of layering foam tape…you should give them a try.
This background paper was one of my favorites – love those conversation hearts.
Mixing a larger sentiment with one or two of the smaller squares really makes the inside of the card look complete.
I wish I had a brand name for that ribbon. I would buy several packs!
Thanks for stopping by to check out my first post of the year – I’m looking forward to lots more cards in 2018. xoxo, Sarah
