Hi everyone! Today I’m here with a card using the supplies from the Simon Says Stamp April 2014 Card Kit. This kit is packed with amazing things. The stamp set has a light bulb image and many matching sentiments. The papers from Simple Stories are also very bold and pretty.
You can purchase the kit on its own for 24.95 or be a card kit subscriber and pay 19.95 per month for each kit.
I wanted to enter this card for the Retro Sketches Challenge Blog but I was a couple of days late. I still decided to continue making the card because I thought it was a pretty unique sketch. Here is the sketch from the challenge that I used —
Here is my card —
I started the card by trying to make a template with triangles. I really didn’t have a formula but I just drew diagonal lines and I ended up with 4 triangles. The second and bottom one were 1 1/2 inches wide and I used that for my patterned paper. I chose 2 floral papers from the Simple Stories and cut and adhered them. For the center triangle, I knew I wanted to stamp something. I used the light bulb stamp and the coordinating shadow stamp. I used Hero Arts Lemon Yellow for the shadow and Memento Tuxedo Black ink for the bulb. Then I decided to create a pattern of light bulbs just using the bulb image without the shadow to leave that one image as the focal point.
For the sentiment, I used 2 stamps from the set. I mounted them side by side and stamped it on Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
To finish the card, I used some Elmer’s Gold Glitter Glue on the heart and adhered some wood veneer shapes from Freckled Fawn.
