Here is my card —

You and Me

 

I started this card with some Bazzill card stock in Fawn cut to a standard size card with the fold on top. I used a polka dot pattern from Pink Paislee’s Pen Pal collection for the bottom layer. For the focal image, I used the Sizzix Labels #3 as the panel. On top of the panel, I used the You and Me die from Sizzix and die cut the boy and the girl in more of the Pen Pal paper from Pink Paislee. I used the blue and pink heart paper to match boy and girl.

For the sentiment, I die cut the sentiment die You + Me using the same pink and blue paper and  I inlaid the letters  again to match. For the +, I colored white card stock with a red marker and die cut the +. To finish the card, I accented the letters and the heart above the boy and girl with the Clear Wink of Stella pen and then I added Glossy Accents on the heart to give it some dimension.  I attached both panels with foam tape.

That’s it for this card.

Miss U

I started this card with Neenah Solar White card stock cut to a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 standard size card with the fold on top. I followed using the strips of paper from the sketch, I cut 3 strips of paper from Pink Paislee’s Pen Pal collection. The two outer strips measures 1/4 inch and the center strip measures 1/2 inch.

For the sentiment, instead of using a raised circle image, I just made it the focal point to act as the circle part from the sketch. Using Simon Says Stamp Thinking Of You set, I masked the “ed” from the word missed. I stamped it in Memento Luxe pigment ink in Love Letter and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. For the “U”, I die cut the letter die cut from the Bright Lights Alpha from My Favorite Things using some Bazzill Blueberry Sour card stock. I adhered the “U” close to the miss to form the Miss U sentiment. To finish the card, I embellished with assorted sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

That’s it for this 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.

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.
