Safe Travels

Hey everyone! This is my 4th card for the Simon Says Stamp September Kit. I really love this kit and I want to try and use up everything from the kit before I move on to next months kit.

This card is also an entry for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

The theme for the challenge this week is — ANYTHING GOES!!!

Here is my card —

Safe Travels

 

I started this card with some grey card stock from Bazzill cut to a standard size card with the fold on top. I added a panel measuring 3 1/2 by 5 1/2 using Bazzill’s Licorice Twist card stock. Then using patterned paper from The Chalk Studio Collection from My Mind’s Eye, I chose 4 prints and punched out 1 1/2 inch scallops for each. I used all 4 medium sized mode of transportation wood veneers from Studio Calico that was included in the kit. I adhered each one to each scallop with Glossy Accents. When that dried, using foam squares, I adhered the scallops to the front of the card. For the the sentiment, I used the “safe travels” sentiment from the Journey of Life set included in the kit. The kit also included a mini ColorBox white ink which I used to stamp the sentiment.

That’s it for this card. I will be back again with my last card from this kit.

***I did not create a supply list because with the exception of adhesives and the scallop punch, everything I used came from the kit.

Thanks for reading 🙂

Life Is A Journey

Hey everybody! I’m sorry for the delay in posting cards – real life rook over for a while and crafting had to take a backseat.

This card is an entry for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

Here is my card —

For today’s card, I am going to use the supplies from the September Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp. My October Kit has arrived and let me tell you, I cannot wait to play with them. I just want to finish the cards I had planned for this kit before I use the new kit.

So here is my 3rd card for this kit –

Life Is A Journey

I started the card with some Neenah Dessert Storm card stock cut to a standard size card. Then I got a 3 1/2 by 4 piece of copy paper and used a protractor to curve the bottom edge. I used assorted strips of patterned paper from the Chalk Studio Collection from My Mind’s Eye that is included in the kit. I adhered them diagonally on the curved paper. I cut the the extra edges hanging and adhered the panel on the front of the card with foam adhesives. For the sentiment, I used two sentiments from the set which made out the name of the actual set – Life Is A Journey. I stamped the sentiment in ColorBox Chestnut Roan ink. To finish the card, I rounded all four corners of the card.

That’s it for this card. I will be back with two more cards for this kit this September before I start making cards with the October Kit.

Thanks for reading! 🙂
