Hi there! It's the 14th of the month, which means it's time to launch another awesome Simon Says Stamp Card Kit! The kit for June is called "Look for the Miracles" and it's so bright and bold and happy! The kit is now available in the Simon Says Stamp online store. CLICK HERE! This kit has such vivid and fun colors, and the papers are beautiful, and have messages of faith on them. I love it all! I was so inspired this time around that I made THREE cards to share with you today. They are each a totally different style, so you can see how versatile the supplies are. I hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead of you! Happy Saturday!
I'm going to show you the main photo for each of the three cards first, then I'll go into more detail on each one further down in my post. The supply links are at the very bottom. Thank you for coming by today.
The first card is quick and simple and can be colored a million different ways with your favorite markers. I used one of the included coloring cards from the kit (already pre printed on smooth paper) and went to town with my Copics. To finish up I added some enamel dots, twine and just a touch of glitter Diamond Stickles.
This next card was not quite so quick and easy! (LOL) I used the new Simon Says Stamp Clear Ink (which is amazing) and white embossing powder and stamped the images on watercolor paper. I hand cut out the flowers and leaves and built my card around them. I used my Kuretake Clean Color Brush Markers to color the images.
For this last one I incorporated the pretty patterned papers. I actually stamped onto the top of the pattern and then watercolored with a bit of distress ink. I love this look! I used a pretty circle die to frame the sentiment, which was stamped in Intense Black Ink.
Okay, now back to the first card. My exact Copic colors are in the supply links. I used two different colors to make ombre letters! I could see this card colored in soft pretty pastels, or really bright colors too. I used a medium palette of coral, yellow and aqua. Some of my favorite shades. I slightly trimmed the card and layered it onto black paper to make it pop! Then I used the included solid cardstock to make a pretty yellow card base. You can see the shimmer from the Stickles.
For this card I stamped, embossed and cut out a lot of the floral images. Then I had a great time coloring with my Kuretake Clean Color Brush Markers. I colored directly onto the watercolor paper and then used a paint brush and water to move the ink around and blend it together. This is one of my favorite looks for floral images. It's so pretty. i tried to exactly match the yellow in the cardstock.
My flowers are popped up with foam squares for effect. I used the Intense Black Simon Says Stamp Ink to add some of the dots (accent stamps) and I like the contrast of the black against that crisp white. I cut the corners of my panels with a corner rounder.
And finally, this cheery card was made using the big, bold sentiment. It's so beautiful! And, what a lovely saying. This could be used for any 'cheer up' occasion. I love the blue cardstock that comes in the kit, and how it matches that heart paper. OOH LA LA. I layered a couple of the papers together and die cut some circles. This is a clean card layout - very graphic.
Well....we made it to the end of this long post! I hope you found something you like here! What technique will you try with YOUR card kit? I can't wait to see what everyone makes this time around. If you make a card, be sure to put it into the Gallery on the Simon Says Stamp Blog and if you Instagram, tag it with #sssck! Have a wonderful day! XOXO
