I have been challenging myself to finish old Simon Says Stamp Kits. Of course I had no interest in doing Christmas cards or Valentine cards. So I was lucky to find a summer card theme.This August 2015 card kit screams summer.
So let’s just jump into looking at the cards
I love this card. I made a watercolor beach with the flip-flops. I embossed the crashing waves and used small bronze dots for the sand. I really like the way it came out.
A couple of folks asked me about the wave stamp. It is from Papertrey Ink called
What the Doodle: Waves Mini Stamp Set
A great set for $5.00
I went for a clean and simple look with this card. I used the stamp on 5 different pages and die-cut the Sunshine out of shiny gold paper.
Here is a close-up. I also added glossy accents on the letters.
When I started this card I did not have high hopes. But as I was working on it, I started to love it. Especially when I noticed that the puffy stickers were mirror images. So when I stuck them on the end of the cord they matched up perfectly. I made the waves out of cork so it looked more beachy. I really like this card.
Here is a close up of the puffy stickers.
When I saw this paper, I really liked the sun burst in the middle. When I laid the margarita die on the top of it I liked how it seem to radiate.
I used the 100% happy stamp on the inside of the glass so when you tipped the sequins you can see the image.
Here is a close-up of the glass so you can see the stamp.
I used a stencil on this card. I colored the embossing paste with ink to have a graduated sunray look.
I will be honest. I did not like this card. I loved the paper but it did not sing to me. But it still made the cut.
Last but not least, a shaker card. I stamped SUMMER on the clear acetate. and added sequins that matched the paper.
Thanks for looking at my SEVEN cards from ONE Kit!
