Extra Details: I began by stamping and coloring the floral images from the stamp set. I used colored pencils to color the images. I fussy cut the images out leaving a small white border.

The card front was pretty full so I decided to forgo the sentiment.

Lion and Mouse

March 31, 2017

I am still loving the Simon Says Stamp April 2017 Card Kit. Here is another card I made using the kit and the Cuddly Critter Accessories Set. The lion’s eyes amuse me and I couldn’t help myself. I had to make him look at the mouse.

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started with a panel of white card stock. I stamped the outline heart strip in black in over the whole background. I left some black areas for interest. Using the ink cubes included in the kit, I filled in some of the hearts with the solid heart strip. I offset the stamping for added interest.

Using a stitched rectangle die, I cut the stamped panel down to 4.25 x 5.5.” I used a Polaroid frame die to cut out the center of the panel. Using the same die, I cut a black fun foam frame and a black card stock frame.

I stamped the critter animals on a scrap of white cardstock and used colored pencils to color them in. Once, finished I fussy cut them out and painted the edges with a black marker.

I stamped the sentiment and some more hearts on the black card stock frame and embossed them in white. I adhered the black card stock frame to the fun foam one.

I created a card base form some white card stock. I adhered the heart panel to the front of the card base. I pieced the black frames into the hole. I added a scrap of pattern paper cut with a grassy border die to the card base. I used a blue colored pencil to add the sky in the frame.

Lastly, I adhered the mouse inside the frame and the lion outside of the frame.

Ellie and Hearts

March 30, 2017

Sometimes I’m just in the mood to make a quick card. I am still smitten with the Simon Says Stamp April 2017 Card Kit, so I drew most of my supplies from there. This card took me about 20 minutes and is one of my current favorites.

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started by making a white card base. Then, I masked out a rectangle on my card base using a left over frame from another project. I stamped the strip of solid hearts in the four ink colors included in the kit. I did some fancy inking to help the colors transition.

The elephant was already colored and fussy cut. So all I had to do was attach an action wobble on adhere him in the middle of the hearts.

Lastly, I stamped by sentiment. I used a dark grey ink because it was what I could find fast.

Monochromatic and Plaid

March 29, 2017

Just before my Simon Says Stamp April 2017 Card Kit arrived, Jennifer McGuire posted a video called Monochromatic Coloring. I wanted to give the technique a try and the dark card stocks in this kit were perfect. I made two cards using this technique.

Card One

Card Two

Details

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started by white heat embossing the images and sentiments on panels of the dark colored card stock. I used a white color pencil to add some highlights to the images. For the darker areas, I used a colored pencil that was slightly darker than the color of the cardstock.

I die cut a series of stitched rectangles of the colored card stock and patterned papers form the kit. For card one, I adhered the outer frame and the patterned paper to the white card base. I used fun foam to pop up the stamped rectangle.

For card tow, I pieced the blue and patterned paper rectangles back together on white card base to create an inlayed pattern.

Lion and Elephant Hello

March 28, 2017

I am really enjoying the Simon Says Stamp April 2017 Card Kit. I love the stamp set and the papers, but the Action Wobbles may be my favorite part. Here is a card I made with an action wobble.

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started by stamping and coloring my images on some white cardstock. I used colored pencils to color in the images. Once done, I fussy cut the images out and painted the edges with a black marker.

I die cut a series of stitched rectangles of the blue card stock and patterned papers form the kit.  I pieced the rectangles back together on white card base to create an inlayed pattern. I also die cut a scrap of the purple card stock for my animals to sit on. I adhered the purple strip and the elephant flat to the card. I used a mini action wobble to adhere the lion. He is some much fun to play with.

I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of white card stock, die cut it with a stitched rectangle, and adhered it to the card.

Colorful Animal Birthday Cards

March 27, 2017

It was a fun weekend of making cards using the Simon Says Stamp April 2017 Card Kit. Here are two more cards that I made using the kit.

33662468095_328623bf4f_o

Card One

33662470385_6c7c020bca_o

Card Two: The elephants and birds were fussy cut and popped up to hide a stamping mistake J

Details

Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 cards

Extra Details:  I started with two panels of white card stock. I used the colored inks that came in the kit to stamp the images. For card one, I made a mask for the giraffe so I could layer them together. On card two, I made a stamping mistake. GRRRR… but rather than start again, I re-stamped the elephants and birds on a scrap of white card stock, fussy cut them out, and popped them up using dimensional glue dots. I stamped my sentiments using black ink.

I used stitched rectangle dies to cut each panel before adhering them to orange card bases. The orange card stock was from my stash.
