So this is the 2nd card for the monthly card kit.  I decided to use some Khaki cardstock to add it to the Wednesday Challenge too!!  Why not.   I rembered that I bought the coffee bean embossing folder and thought it would be great to use with the coffee theme card kit.   SCORE!!!  I knew if I bought it I would make a card….sooner or later.  LOL.  I am so bad, I am always buying and rarely making!  Remember she who dies with the most scrapbook supplies wins!!!   I am a contender and a champ!!!!!

The Challange Ribbon copy

This is a self imposed challenge.  I get the Simon Says Stamp Card Club kit every month.  Sometimes I am so bad that all I do is look at the kit and some of the examples.  And that is it.  So the challenge is to make at least 3 cards from the kits.   PLEASE!!!   At least try girlfriend!!!

Simon Says Stamp October 2013 Card Kit – Autumn Tree

October 20th, 2013 klwade Posted in Cardmaking, Crafts, Simon Says Stamp Card Kit No Comments »

SSS_cardkit_oct13_final

 

I really like the tree in this stamp set. Because I wanted to use the squirrel, I decided to cut a circle in the card and stamp the tree in the inside with the squirrel at the bottom.  I did different colors ink for the leaves to make it look more like Autumn.

Inside of the card, please ignore the slight cirle on the orange paper.   This paper did not take erasing pencil marks too well!!  And I did it lightly!!!!  Geez!!!

On this card I wanted to use the forest animals.  So I created a rosette with a tiny fox in the center.  I really like the wood grain paper as it gives a feel of the forest!!!

I challenged myself to make at least 3 cards from the monthly card kit.  It was easy with this one because I love Autumn and Squirrels!!!  LOL

 

I really loved the crisp blue paper with trees byt it begged for a little red cardinal sitting on a branch!   To bring out the red bird I framed the paper with red cardstock.  It just peeks out from the side and frames the little banner!  I used glossy accents on the bird to give it a little depth.

Simon Says 2013 January Card Kit

 

I received my January Card kit in the mail and just had to play.  So far I just have two cards but working on several more.

 

Thinking-of-you-card

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I really like hexagons and the hexagon paper was just too small for a card.  So I used my Papertrey Ink hexagon impression template and cut out the small hexagons from the paper in the kit.

Supplies:

Recollections Rhinestones

I wanted something with Glitter and glam!  I loved the Swiss dot paper in the kit and wanted to highlight the elegance of the paper

I cut out an opening using Spellbinders Small Labels #4 and laid the paper from the kit underneath.

I edged the opening with my Kyron Gold Leaf pen and added the buttons from the stamp set and a few that I had bought from Joann’s.  Sorry I don’t remember the brand.

I thought the card looked pretty for someone special!!!
