5 Cards 1 Kit Featuring Simon Says Stamp January 2022 Card Kit

Updated: Feb 24, 2022

Hello Everyone and thank you so much for joining me !! This kit was a lot of fun to play with I really tired to think outside of my usual box!! I think I came up with some fun cards that I hope you will enjoy. If you want a more in-depth look at how these cards came together please check out the video down below. Let's jump right in!!

For this first card I really wanted to try for a masculine feel so I used just the Soft Navy and white cardstock. I created a Mini Slimline base which I cut to 6 x 6 inches and scored at the 3 inch mark which is my preferred Mini Slimline size. I then also cut a few layers and mattes mostly around the 1/8th of an inch smaller the the last layer. For the top white layer I ran it thought the embossing folder that came in the kit and stamped out a sentiment in the same Soft Navy colour and trimmed it down and matted it non another piece of Navy cardstock, I adhered them all with some liquid glue so I would have a little bit of time to line up my layers. I did bring in some Navy gems to finish off the card design and called this one done.

For the second card I decided I wanted to make a flat shaker card, I created the pocket out of some stamp packaging and adhered it to some pattern paper I trimmed down. I filled the pocket with some Distress rock candy glitter and some mica flakes, I also added some Navy glitter from my stash. I adhered my pocket to a soft navy matte and to the white card base, then stamped out a sentiment and trimmed it with some nested circle dies layering it up for some added interest. I adhered down the sentiment then added some of the pink gems that came in the kit and called it done.

I really enjoy creating Artist Trading Cards and for this one I used some pattern paper from the kit to create the background then stamped some trees on to the right hand side for some added interest. I stamped out the little snowman on some Copic safe in and used C1, C3, and C5 to create some shadows, C7 and C9 on the buttons, YR07 and YR09 for his nose, and V12, V15, and V17 for his hat. I brought in a white gel pen to add some highlights to areas on the snowman and some silver glitter nuvo drops to add some shine into the background.

I really wanted to use that stunning snowflake stencil so I created another mini slimline card, trimmer out a sliver matte 1/8th of an inch smaller than my base and a pane l/8th of an inch smaller than my matte. I brought in three Distress Oxide inks in Kitsch Flamingo, Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry and blended them on through the stencil, then flicked on some perfect pearls. I wrapped some silver metallic thread around the panel and adhered my layers together. I white heat embossed my sentiment on some Doll Pink cardstock from the kit and adhered it down on top of a silver matte and popped it up with some Big mamma foam tape.

For my final card I wanted to use some of the SeaFoam glitz glitter gel, so I applied that through the snowflake stencil onto a piece of Lavender cardstock and set it aside to dry, I cut out a sliver matte and used an A2 sized card base. I stamped my sentiment out in Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide Ink and cut it out with a circle die, I also created it a matte with the same silver cardstock from the matte for the panel and adhered them together, I added some Big mamma foam tape to the back of the sentiment and adhered it to the bottom of the panel. I brought in some silver metallic pearls and scattered them across my card front. Then called this card finished.
