Simon Says Stamp July 2015 Card Kit Reveal (& GIVEAWAY)!

Hi everyone!

Today is reveal day for the Simon Says Stamp July 2015 Card Kit: Sail Away With Me! This month's kit will make you want to go sailing... or at the very least to take a trip to the beach. ;)

Here it is:



Isn't the new Simon Says Stamp Sailing Stamp Set adorable? I'm also liking the Maya Road Anchor Clips, Tim Holtz Ideaology Souvenir Adornments, and Simon Says Stamp Sailboat Die that are included in the kit. I'm looking forward to trying to create some sailing-themed cards later in the week but for today's card I took the waves border stamp and created a patterned background.


My MISTI came in SO handy for this as I never would have been able to get eveything lined up on my own. I stamped the waves from Simon's new Sailing Stamp Set with Versafine Black Oynx Pigment Ink and after they were all stamped I clear heat embossed them. I then coloured them in using a rainbow of Copic Marker colours. I also heat embossed the largest cloud from the stamp set, cut it out, and stamped the sentiment on it. I wrapped a piece of the May Arts Natural Twine around the cloud and finished it off with a metal star from the Tim Holtz Ideaology Travel Adornments before adhering it with some foam adhesive.

Supplies:



As always, you can pick up the Simon Says Stamp July 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.

Also, sweet Heidi, owner of Simon Says Stamp, has given me an extra July Card Kit to pass on to one of you! Just leave a comment on any or all of my July Card Kit blog posts and I'll announce a winner Friday, June 26th.
