Simon Says Stamp July 2014 Card Kit

July 2014 Card Kit

I have been trying to catch up with old card kits.   I am on a roll, but I keep finding boxes that I have stashed away in interesting places.

I really like this card kit.  I like the red, white and blue color theme and the stamp set is just inspiring!

I made SIX cards with this kit.  I think I could have made more, but there are stacks on boxes to go thru.   I am sooooo behind!

one kit 6-9

To start with, I wanted to dive into the color theme.  I made a simple card that really focuses on the colors.

Sending You lots of Love

The next card is also a simple design.  I loved this pattern paper and really wanted it to be a major focus on the page.  I pulled out my favorite large word die from Simon Says Stamp.  This HELLO die has been on several of my cards and I just love it.    I die cut several “hello” and glue them together to give it thickness.   Whenever I do this I think it looks just like a Thicker chipboard word.

Hello Blue and Red

For this card I wanted to use some of the puffy stickers that came in the kit.  I die cut the typewriter print paper with a postage stamp die frame.  Which just pulls the whole “Mail/Typewriter” theme together on this card.

Typewriter Mail

To continue the mail theme, I colored in a Tim Holtz crazy bird.  I even cut a slit in card to slide an envelope under his beak.   I used Glossy Accents on his eyes to give him some extra dimension, but I don’t think you can see it very well in this picture.   I copic colored the envelopes to change the color of the paper to match the bird.   I really like this bird.   I know this bird will be back!

Happy Mail Bird

I decided on this card to pull away from the mail/envelopes/color theme and do something different.  I used an embossing folder that gave this great dimension on the paper.  It is simple, yet elegant.

Thinkg of you Gray Crinkle

My final card, and my favorite card started out as a mistake.

I was trying to make stripes and they looked funny and awkward.  So I blended it all together and it started to look like a sunset on the ocean.

I added some black foliage on the bottom.  It looks so serene I decided to make it a somber card that I can send to someone having a hard time.

Sending Love and Prayers Ocean Sunset

I hope you enjoy looking at my creations.
