10 Cards | 1 Kit – SSS January 2019 Card Kit (Part 2 of 2)

Hey There,

Hope everyone is having a great week so far! Today I’ve got part 2 of the Simon Says Stamp January card kit to share with you. I really had a blast with this kit – especially creating the snowball fight slider card in today’s bunch. Hope you like it too:

Here are some close-ups of the finished cards:

6

I’m starting off super simple with this one – just a background, some washi and a popped up cut-a-part.

6 inside

I thought missing you was the best sentiment to pair with the hot chocolate cut-a-part.

6 close7

I had so much fun making this card – love that the snowball leaves right from his hand and flies over to the other penguin’s head!

7 inside

And a snowball seems like the perfect way to say a winter hello!

This is again pretty sweet and simple – I don’t have a lot of copics, so I was lucky I had some in colors to match that pattern paper.

8 inside

And since he was carrying a gift, I thought this sentiment works great inside.

I saw that string of pom poms on one of the samples in the reveal video and knew I had to try that for at least one of my cards. I secured all those little pompoms down with a glue dot to make sure they don’t move around too much!

9 inside

Here for the inside, I wanted to bring in a little more red from the pattern paper so I  added those stripes along the bottom.

9 close10

Once I get started with those stripes I never want to stop so, of course, I added more on this last card. I think they’re a great way to add a masculine touch to any card.

And I left the inside blank here with lots of room for the thank you message.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my cards. Valentine’s projects coming soon!! xoxo, Sarah

10 Cards | 1 Kit – SSS January 2019 Card Kit (Part 1 of 2)

Hello!

I’ve been crafting all weekend and Part 1 of the SSS January 2019 Card Kit is now ready for you.  A bit earlier than I was expecting to be done, but I wanted to finish up with my winter cards before starting on Valentine’s Day projects so, yay! I had a lot of fun with this kit and made 2 interactive slider cards which are some of my favorites 🙂 Here is what I came up with:

Here are some close-ups of the finished cards:

1

These little characters are so cute – I love that little skating penguin!

1 inside

The sentiments in this kit are really wonderful too. I like the font a lot and well, you know how much I love a good pun 🙂

2

This is a simple one, but I feel like those are the kinds of cards I need the most of. I let this penguin paper shine and set off the sentiment using a label die.

2 inside

Such a cute little phrase – and that fox is adorable. I wish we had a stamp of him too!

2 close3

I have so much fun coloring in images like this. There’s something about working with a white pencil (or in my case 10% gray) and watching things come to life on the paper.

3 inside

Is anyone not singing Frozen while stamping with this? If so you’re lucky – my niece and nephew have burned those songs into my brain.

This was my favorite pattern paper in the kit. Shakers are always fun to make and a great way to get 2 cards out of one pattern paper that you love.

4 inside

Busy outside…simple inside.

4 close5

Even with the slider cards (and those are so much fun), this is my favorite card of all. I love that dark blue background embossed with the snowflakes and the pop of colors on the scarves etc. of the snowmen. There’s just something about this card that calls to me.

5 inside

It’s always hard for me to get pictures of this blue card base (they take on this crazy yellow tone) so I zoomed in on the white background here. You can see that I mimicked the snowflakes on the outside, but flipped them to the bottom here to balance things out a bit.

5 closeCopics: YR04, R20, N4, RV63, YG45, RV66, YG25, BG1O, B99, BG13, R17

As always, I really appreciate your taking the time to see what I came up with. Thanks so much for stopping by today! xoxo, Sarah

13 Days of Halloween – Day 4 | I’m BATS about you

Hello there,

I’ve been working all weekend on projects for this Halloween series and am in love with how this card came out. It’s been in my head for a few days so I was really happy to get it down on paper and that it turned out as I was planning. Here is the video of how it came together…

Here are some stills of the finished card:

Doesn’t that look like a cave full of bats! This is the first time I’ve colored in a background around stamped images and I’m for sure doing more of that.

Here is a close up of that little cutie! you can see how that colored pencil (though not necessary) gives just that little bit of extra.

Prismacolors: 1054, 289, 1013

With the front being so busy I kept the inside simple, but couldn’t resist adding a little pop of orange washi tape.

Here is that rip strip in action:

As always, thanks for stopping by. Hope I was able to give you some inspiration for your next project! xoxo, Sarah

Reverse Confetti – Cured | Spinner Card

Hello everyone,

Hope your week is going well! It’s hard to believe it’s Wednesday already. I had some fun this week using Reverse Confetti’s Cured stamp set  to create a spinner card and wanted to share it with you.

My grandpa has been feeling under the weather so I made this to send him a little cheer. I just love a pun and so does he – I know that “hope you’re cured soon” sentiment will put a smile on his face.

Here’s a close up of the final card:
