Clean craft area day really means make more cards! Here is a card I made with the Simon Says Stamp August 2017 Card Kit.

Details

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began this card with a panel of the pattern paper included in the kit. I used one of the small sentiments to stamp on the white areas of the chevrons. I added this paper to a grey card base.

I die cut the large “thanks” from grey card stock four times. I glued them all together. I die cut the same “thanks” one more time from some striped paper. I glue this to the stack of grey die cuts, but off set it just a little bit. Once the stack of “thanks” was dry, I adhered it to a small rectangle of velum and adhered that to the card front.

Ferris Wheel Glitter

August 16, 2017

I was cleaning up my crafty area and found some of the goodies from the Simon Says Stamp July 2017 Card Kit. I love this pattern paper and am not sure why I hadn’t used it. So today was the day that it got used.

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began this card with a rectangular panel of the Ferris wheel paper and a 3 by 3” square of the pink pattern paper. I used WoW Cloud 9 embossing powder to emboss a Ferris wheel on the pink square. I used blank ink to add the sentiment. I layered the pink square on some foam tape before adhering it to the Ferris wheel paper. Then I added everything to a yellow card base.

Owls + Books

August 16, 2017

I was looking through the Simon Says Stamp August 2017 Monthly Card Kit today. I found this scrap of paper from one of the pattern papers included in the kit. The words at the bottom remind me of my grandmother. So I created this card for her.

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details: I began this card with a strip of pattern paper. I added a few stamped images about the words already printed on the paper. I used colored pencils to color the owls in and add a bit of ground. I cut a shallow fish tail to the bottom of the strip to create a banner shape.

I found another larger piece of pattern paper to add interest to my card base. I used a light tan card stock to create a card base. I adhered the orange dotted paper to the card base. I used foam tape to adhere the banner to the card front.

For the inside of the card, I die cut the letters for the word “you” from the same orange paper I used on the card front. I adhered them down with liquid glue and added a few smaller sentiments in black ink.

Oxide Frames

August 1, 2017

I was so excited to get another Distress Oxide ink pad in the Simon Says Stamp August 2017 Card Kit. I decided to play with the inks on colored cardstock.

Details

Size:  Horizontal side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began by silver heat embossing the sentiment in the middle of the kraft card base. I stamped the frame around the sentiment in Cracked Pistachio and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink. I used Lawn Fawn’s Yeti White Pigment ink for the white stripes.

I sprayed a very light mist of water on the Oxide Inks. Once the water was dry, the card was finished.

This is the third card that I made with the Simon Says Stamp August 2017 Card Kit. The patterned papers included are definitely designed for scrap book pages, but I am having fun trying to use them on 4.25” x 5.5” cards.

Details

Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 card

Extra Details: I began this card with one of the patterned papers that had some large words on it. I cut the piece down to fit on a card front. I layered a strip of black card stock at the top edge. I added some puffy stickers from the kit to the vertical lines of the words for interest.

I chose an orange card base for this card. I added some triangles in a light grey ink to the top portion for more interest. I adhered the large word panel to the card base with fun foam and the card was finished.

This is the second card I made with the Simon Says Stamp August 2017 Card Kit. I had some left over 4” x ¾” strips from my first card that I wanted to use up.

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began by trimming each of my ¾” wide strips into banner shapes. I glued the flat edges to the top of a grey card base. I curled up the tails of the banners and added some puffy stickers.

I also wanted to use the silver glitter embossing powder. So I stamped a sentiment in Versa Mark and heat embossed it.

Be Who You Are

July 28, 2017

The Simon Says Stamp August 2017 Card Kit has arrived. It’s like my birthday at the end of every month. I started by cutting the patterned paper in to 5.25” x 4” rectangles, 6” x 2” strips, and 4” by ¾” strips. I find if I don’t do this, I will hoard the patterned papers and never use them. This is the first card I made with the kit.

Details

Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 card

Extra Details: I began by creating a grey card base. Then I pulled over all of the 4” x ¾” strips. After playing with the strips for a while, I settled on this design. I adhered the strips flat to the card base. Then, I added a few of the puffy stickers from the kit.

I’ve had this card partially put together for almost a month. I need my die cut machine to finish it and I finally unpacked it. I used the Simon Says Stamp June 2017 Card Kit.

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began with a panel of pattern paper that I adhered to a grey card base. Then, I found a smallish rectangle from black cardstock. I heat embossed the sentiment using silver embossing powder. I adhered the black rectangle to the card base with foam tape. Then I set the card aside waiting for my die cut machine to be un-packed.

Finally, I was able to die cut the strings and banners form more patterned paper from the kit. I adhered the banners to the black panel and the card was complete.

Relaxing in the Pool

July 25, 2017

I love the Simon Says Stamp July 2017 Card Kit. I have been waiting almost a month to play with the bikini die and I’m so excited I finally got to use it.

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details: I started with a panel of blue/green patterned paper. I added the wave stamp with blue ink to the entire panel. I stamped the sentiment in Versa Fine black ink.

I had a small scrap of the white panel patterned paper left that I didn’t want to waste. I die a bikini from it. I adhered some sticky backed fun foam to the back leaving the adhesive open so I could inlay another bikini. I die cut the bikini from another scrap of pattern paper and inlayed the bikini in the white panel piece.

I adhered the inlayed piece to the wave piece using the sticky backed fun foam. I rounded the corners on the wave panel. I created a kraft card base and rounded those corners also. Lastly, I adhered the wave panel to the kraft card base.
