Simon Says Stamp Graphic Butterfly Card and August Card Kit Winner!

Hi everyone! 

I'm back today to announce the winner of the Simon Says Stamp August Card Kit: Summer Sunshine. and to share a card I made recently using some Simon Says Stamp products.

First, the winner of the card Kit is...

Congrats, Mary-Anne! Please email me via the email button on my side bar with your shipping address so I can pass it on to Simon. :)

Now how about a card?

For my card I die cut a panel using Simon's Stitched Rectangles Dies from some Neenah Solar White Cardstock. I then die cut Simon's Graphic Twists Die out of it, as well as from three different colours of Simon's cardstock. I pieced the die cut coloured cardstock pieces into the white panel like a puzzle with a scrap piece of paper adhered behind it to help hold everything together. I then die cut Simon's Paulina Butterfly Die out of the panel as well as from a piece of white fun foam. I adhered the panel to a piece of Simon's Slate Cardstock, adhered the fun foam butterfly and topped it with the cardstock butterfly to give some dimension. I then stamped a sentiment from Simon's Thanks Stamp Set.

Simon Says Stamp Better than Summer Sunshine Card (& GIVEAWAY)!

Hi everyone!

I'm back with another card to share using the fun new Simon Says Stamp August Card Kit: Summer Sunshine.

Here it is:

I'm loving the colour combination found in this month's kit as well as the yummy My Mind's Eye Shimmer Cardstock. I also really like how the sentiments in the Flip Flop Season Stamp Set work together with a blocked greeting (like 'friends' on my card) and regular print wording to create a more interesting message. For this card, I cut out one of the journaling cards fom the Simple Stories Summer Vibes 6x6 Paper Pad, stamped my sentiment, added some cute stickers from the  October Afternoon Summertime Pillow Puffs Stickers set, and some hearts from the Custom 'Fairy Tale Martha Stewart confetti mix using Ranger's Mini Multi Medium Matte Adhesive. I then adhered the panel to a piece of the beautiful My Mind's Eye Imperial Red Shimmer Cardstock (that was die cut using one of Simon's Stitched Rectangles Dies) with some of the Best Creation Big Squares Foam Adhesive that came in the kit.This was then adhered to a sweet floral print from the Simple Stories Summer Vibes 6x6 Paper Pad (also die cut using one of Simon's Stitched Rectangles Dies) in the same manner before  adhering it all to my card front with Tombow's Xtreme Permanent Adhesive Tape Runner.


Just a reminder that you can pick up the Simon Says Stamp August 2015 Card Kit for just $29.95 + shipping. If you'd like to receive this kit and future kits for only $24.95 + shipping per month, you can SUBSCRIBE HERE.
