Hang In There

Hi everyone. Today’s card is another share from the SSS July 2014 card kit. I’ve really had a lot of fun with this kit and I am very excited to move on to the August kit.

This card is an entry for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. The challenge for this week is ANYTHING GOES.

Here is my card —

Hang In There

I started this card with 4 3/4 by 4 1/4 card from Neenah Solar White card stock. I adhered a piece of patterned paper from Pink Paislee over the entire front of the card. The front panel, I cut a piece measuring  1/4 x 3 3/4 from more Neenah Solar White card stock. I die cut a few pieces of the hanger die cut from the Thanks For Your Support coordinating die set from SSS. I stuck each hanger together and for the top most piece, I covered it in VersaMark and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder for American Crafts. That made it look like a steel/metal hanger which was the look I was going for.

For the envelopes, I stamped the smallest envelope from the Happy Thoughts stamp set on different patterns from Pink Paislee. I attached the envelopes on the hanger with blue twine from Maya Road. For the sentiment, I used Milo’s ABC from Lawn Fawn in Memento Paris Dusk ink and a sentiment from the Love This set using Lipstick Red ink. I rounded the corners of the front panel and adhered it with foam tape.

That’s it for this card. For a list of the tools and supplies I used on the card, please check the supply list below.

Thanks for reading.

Simon Says Stamp July 2014 Card Kit – Sending Lots of Love

Hi everyone! I’m here today with my first card for the Simon Says Stamp July 2014 Card Kit.

I love the images that are in the stamp set especially the envelopes. I have been wanting envelope stamps for a while and I’m happy I finally have them. So for this card, I decided to use them. I don’t think this is my favorite card that I’ve made but I decided to share it anyway.

Here is my card —

Sending Lots of Love

I started this card with a  5 1/4 x 4 inch panel of Bazzill Blueberry Sour card stock. I masked off the bottom area for my sentiment and then I stamped the envelopes in a random pattern. I stamped the envelopes using Versamark ink and then I added gold embossing powder from Zing.

For the sentiment, I used the “Sending Lots of Love” sentiment and also stamped it in Versamark and embossed it with the same gold embossing powder. I added a heart also included in the kit.

To finish the card, I adhered the panel on Taffy card stock from Bazzill cut and folded to a  standard size landscape card.

Please check the supply list below for details on the products I used.

That’s it for today. You can watch the video below or on YouTube.
