Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card using supplies from the Simon Says Stamp September Card Kit. It’s the last day of the month, so I wanted to get one more card for this kit before I move on on the October kit.
When I first saw this kit, I honestly had many ideas going through my head and I knew I would make quite a few cards. However, due to time constraints and just a general lack of of time (September felt like it just came and went), I haven’t fully made use of the kit. So, I intend within the next few weeks to just use some products from the kit mixed with other brands and kits.
Here is my card — (sorry for the picture quality, it was a gloomy day and this was the best shot I could get)
I started this card with some Neenah Solar White card stock cut to a standard size card with the fold on top. For the front of the base, I adhered one of the patterned papers included in the kit from October Afternoon. For the white panel, I stamped the shelf from the set included in the kit with some Hero Arts ink in Cup O’Joe ink.Then I randomly stamped the different kinds of books with a variety of inks from Hero Arts and Simon Says Stamp. I wanted the shelf to be tall and a little wobbly. To make the panel stand out, I distressed the edges with a mini ink blending tool and some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen. I attached the panel on the left of the card with foam tape.
For the sentiment, I decided to make a custom sentiment using Milo’s ABC from Lawn Fawn (my favorite alphabet set EVER). I spelled the phrase “Keep Calm and Read a Book” and stamped it with with Versafine Onyx black ink and topped it with clear embossing powder.
To finish the card, I attached some enamel dots from My Mind’s Eye for added dimension and interest.
For a list of all the products I used, please check the supply list below.
This card is an entry for the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – Anything Goes.
That’s it for this card. Thanks for reading.
