Simon Says Stamp August 2016 Card Kit

I recently received my August 2016 Simon Says Stamp card kit and got right to work making a card. Picture 32

I used the vented star die in the kit to make my own stencil. The video for this will go up soon, so make sure you are subscribed to our YouTube Channel!

Here’s a list of supplies ( I really try to stick to mostly what’s included in the kit to make it easy to duplicate my cards):

Merry & Bright Stencil Card

I thought it would be fun to make a card only using my new Christmas stencils! I am pretty happy with how it came out !

20151119_214541

I started off with the Merry & Bright Stencil and mixed some Ranger glitter with some Liquitex Gloss Gel. I originally did this so there wouldn’t be glitter everywhere and I could have some cool dimensional glitter. In the end I poured more glitter over the top since it looked like it was lacking in some areas. So, now glitter comes off but I think it looks better. I may spray some kind of sealant over it.

Once that was dry, I grabbed my sponge daubers and the Tangled Lights Stencil.  The sponge daubers make it so easy to be precise and I didn’t even have to mask when I alternated distress ink colors for the light bulbs. I used Seedless Preserves, Salty Ocean, and Barn Door for the Lights. Forest Moss was used for the wire. I finished it off by adding some Glossy Accents to all of the light bulbs to make them gleam.

 

Here’s what the stencils look like:

The stencils are just $3.99 each. (They’re 40% off the month of December! Discount is shown in the cart.)

I like how this card came out. It was so simple and can you believe there was absolutely NO STAMPING!

I challenge you to make a card with ALL STENCILS! It can spark some creativity. Give it a try!

Thanks for stopping by!

You light up my life Card

Hi everyone!  I just made this card so fast! Probably the fastest I’ve ever made a card. It’s such a quick way to let someone know how much they mean to you and it takes barely any effort, but it’s still handmade.  All you need is two stencils and some of the alpha stamps from the Michaels dollar bin!  The two stencils I used are a new Intoxicating Arts release that I just put up for sale today.  These durable clear laser cut mylar stencils are also super affordable!  The love light bulb stencil is only $0.89 and “Tunnel vision”, which I used to show light, is only $1.29! These prices make it easy to buy trendy stencils without feeling guilty :-). Available for sale now under the stencil section at shop.intoxicatingarts.com . Check it out!
