I just wanted to drop a quick reminder that if you would like to play along with me in August you will want to sign up for the card kit now. This one is another awesome one and I bet it will sell out!
There’s a bunch of patterned papers and resist papers in Kraft and white included. I can’t wait to play around with this kit! We get mini Distress Inks in Chipped Sapphire and Festive Berries. I am so glad those are two colors I’ve been wanting but haven’t allowed myself to buy yet. I’m sure you noticed the gorgeous stamp set with all of the star constellations. Plus we get this vented star die and a cute firework stencil. Wahoo!

That’s IT! I really tried to mostly stick to the supplies that were included in the kit. Of course you will need some adhesive too. All the papers, stamps and colored inks were in the kit. I definitely have enough supplies to make at least 2 more cards too. In the end I will still be left over with 4 ink cubes, a water brush, a gorgeous stamp set, and 8 completed cards! I’ve been having so much fun creating with this kit and I can’t wait to get another one next month.
As promised, here is the last Birthday Card I made using the Simon Says Stamp July 2016 Card Kit.
If you would like to see this card close up, you will want to visit my YouTube channel because I have a video going up of the making of this card right now!
Here’s a list of supplies used:
Silver Embossing Powder
Prima Water Soluble Oil Pastels
Simon Says Stamp Birthday Celebration Stamp Set
That’s pretty much it! I really tried to stay with mostly using items that were included in the kit.I will continue to try to mostly use the items that are in the kit as well. I think it shows how versatile it really is. There were some great sentiments in the kit but I really needed Birthday Cards and it was lacking a Birthday Sentiment. Luckily I had other sets on had with some nice birthday greeting and most cardmakers have at least one set like this laying around.
Today I’m sharing the first of 3 birthday cards that I have already made using this card kit. It tried to stick to mostly what was included in the kit and use only a little bit of my supplies I already had on hand.
Here’s the card:
This was the quickest of all of the cards I made and I just made it up as I went along. I started with one of the beautiful patterned papers from the kit and ink blending the border and the flowers using a Judikins Color Duster. I used various yellow inks including the one hybrid ink that was in the kit along with some distress ink.
I layered that on top of some vellum and taped it down to the card front. I added some glass domes to the top left corner to finish it off. Glass domes are also sold by Pretty Pink Posh under the name Clear Droplets. Mine are just a little larger than theirs. I mounted the card front onto Simon Says Stamp Slate Cardstock that I turned into a card base by cutting it at 5.5″ and scoring it at 4.25″. If you haven’t used Simon Says Stamp Cardsstock before, I definitely recommend you give it a try. I was super happy with how heavy weight it was and it made me realize I’ve been making some very “light” card bases. It made it feel much nicer.
That’s it for today! I will be back really soon with another birthday card I made using this month’s Simon Says Stamp Card Kit. Thank you for stopping by!
