Simon Says Stamp July 2014 Card Kit Completed

Hi everyone! I’m here today to share a few cards that I made with the Simon Says Stamp July 2014 Card Kit. I made a total of 11 cards for this kit. I already shared 3 and I will share another 3 today. I have a 7th card that I will share tomorrow. As for the balance 4 cards, they were mostly inspirations from the inspiration sheet we received with the card kit so I won’t be sharing those anymore since they were mostly CASE cards.

The Simon Says Stamp Card Kit is an awesome deal. It is a monthly subscription of card making supplies with a theme each month. To purchase each kit is 24.95 on its own. If you decide to subscribe it will be 19.95 which is reasonable price since you are getting a full size stamp set every month. I love receiving the kit each month because it definitely helps kick start my creativity.

Now for the first card —

Thinking of You Chevron

I started this card with a standard size Neenah Solar White card stock with the fold on top. For the chevron design, I am using my favorite technique which Jennifer McGuire demonstrated here. I love chevrons and when I saw Jennifer’s tutorial, I knew I would be doing this all the time. For the chevron pattern, I used the patterned papers from Pink Paislee that was included in the kit. Instead of using the chevron stripes as a whole sheet, I decided to cut each strip so I could place them randomly on the card. I ran the stripes on my Xyron Sticker Maker to make it easier to stick.

For the sentiment, I used the sentiment from the stamp set included in the kit. I stamped it using Lipstick Red ink from SSS. I also randomly stamped some of the hearts around the sentiment the same red ink. To finish the card, I accented the hearts with some Clear Wink of Stella pen and locked the shine with some Glossy Accents.

Here is the second card —

Thinking Of You

For this card, I was inspired by a card I saw at my local grocery store. I forgot to take a picture but it had stripes printed on the background so I knew I wanted to use strips of paper using the Pen Pal collection. I chose a few patterns and cut them into 1/4 inch strips. I started sticking the strips at the center and worked my way to each side. I decided to  arrange them randomly with different heights. I used Neenah Desert Storm as my main card base. The card is standard size with the fold on  top.

For the main element, I cut a circle using the Sizzix Circle Framelits set from the same kraft card stock. I embellished it with the typewriter, heart and thought bubble puffy stickers from the Pen Pal collection from Pink Paislee.

And here is the final card —

Hello Circles

I started this card with some Neenah Solar White card stock cut to standard size card. Using the patterned papers, I cut 1 inch circles and adhered in 2 lines on the front of the card. For the sentiment, I used the round hello greeting from the same set. I embossed it on Blueberry card stock from Bazzill using the AC Zing Gold Metallic embossing powder. I stuck the other circles straight on to the card stock but for the Hello sentiment, I adhered it using foam squares for added dimension.

I had some left over strips from the previous card, so I cut one side at a diagonal and adhered it to the card. To finish, I rounded the bottom corners.

That’s it for this post and card kit. For more information on the tools and supplies I used for the cards, please check the supply list below.

Here is my card —

You Fill My Day With Rainbows

I started this card with a standard size with the fold on top cut from some Neenah Solar White card stock. I stamped the rays from The SSS Color and Sunshine set with colors that match the rainbow. The full color list will be provided on the supply list below. After stamping each color, I cut a ray from each one and added some Colored Elmer’s Glitter Glue. This glue dries flat so to add more dimension, I added some Glossy Accents to give it a clear raised image. I attached each ray with the Xyron Sticker Maker.

For the sentiment, I used the same stamp set and paired 2 sentiments together. I stamped it in ColorBox black pigment ink and then heat embossed with the American Crafts Zing clear embossing powder.

To finish the card, I added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and black enamel dots from My Mind’s Eye.
