Yes Let's Celebrate... (& Simon Says Stamp September Card Kit GIVEAWAY)!

Hi everyone,

I'm popping by to share another card made using the fun new Simon Says Stamp September 2015 Card Kit



This month's kit includes a number of fun products including Simon's new Birthday Bits Stamp SetPinkFresh Studio Happy Things Acetate CardsDina Wakley Ranger White Gesso Tube, and Simon's Playful Circles stencil which is exclusie to the kit. It also includes some of Simon's great cardstocks!


Here's the card I came up with for today:


I was completely inspired by the black and white patterned paper that came in this month's kit. Lately I've been colouring printable patterns designed for grown ups to colour as a means of destressing so when I saw this paper I couldn't help myself. I die cut a panel using the stitched rectangle from Simon's Bundle of Stitches Dies and pulled out my Copics. Once coloured, I added the panel to my notecard on an angle, adhered one of the PinkFresh Studio Happy Things Acetate Cards on top, and stamped the rest of the sentiment and stars from Simon's Birthday Bits Stamp Set. Again, I had planned on using Stazon Black Ink for my stamping but my ink has dried out and I need to buy a refill. The Archival Ink seems to be holding up ok but if I really rub it with my finger it does smear slightly.

Supplies:


You can pick up the Simon Says Stamp September 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.
