You put the Awesome into my day

Hola!  I am playing along with Curtain Call today. I love their inspiration photos every challenge. This weeks challenge inspired me to make TWO cards.  Here is the challenge photo:

Isn't it soooo pretty and isnpiring?

Here are my two cards:

 For this card I used the Simon Says Stamp Lots of Dots stamp and Hero Arts inks. I kept it really clean and simple.  The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday.

This card uses stamps from Inkadinkado. I have to say I wasn't really thrilled with the way the ink pooled on the stamp. Maybe it's because they have been uninked before. I don't know where they came from. I found them when I was looking for something fun to stamp.  I'll try them again. I might try going over them with an eraser to see how that works.

Again the inks are Hero Arts and the sentiment is from Hero also.

Have a fabulous day!

Simon Says Stamp July Card Kit

Hi Happy Hot July!  Today I am sharing a few cards that I made with the July Simon Says Stamp Card Kit. I have to say that I think this one is my favorite one yet!  The patterned papers are just to die for. The ink...FAB. Just love everything about this kit. I am working on more cards from it today but I couldn't wait to share these 3. So let's get to it.

First here is the kit:
 It is just INCREDIBLE.

Here are my cards:

  For this one I  stamped the little envelopes 3 times on the kraft cardstock in Black Hero Arts ink and added a little red heart and a sentiment stamped in the Lipstick Red SSS ink that is included in the kit. I used Hero Arts Navy to stamp the sentiment. All supplies on this card are in the kit other than the Black Hero Arts ink.
 For this one I used the remainder of the flowered paper from the first card. I think this is my favorite print out of all of them. I used a Memory Box die to die cut the flower from the first two layers and then die cut it again with the chevron paper from the kit and inlaid it into the flowers. I used the Simon Says Stamp Hello die for my sentiment.
 My third card I used the Puffy Stickers from the kit. I LOVE these. They are by Pink Paislee. I love the texture of them. They are kind of rubbery and they stick incredibly. I stamped the little flower from the set in Colorbox White Frost pigment ink and then stamped over them with the SSS Lipstick Red, Hero Arts Navy and Hero Arts Cornflower blue. I added some dots and some tick marks around the edge of the tag that I created with the Kraft Cardstock. It was so fast and so simple...one of the reasons I love these kits so very, very much.

That's all for today. I am off to create more!  If you don't get these kits on a monthly basis, I highly recommend them. You can also buy them each month without a subscription.

While I am here I thought I would enable you a bit....if you haven't seen...Simon Says Stamps is offering a HUGE savings on Kelly Purkey items right now....75% off...yup 75 PERCENT OFF!  Crazy right? Use the Code PURKEY at checkout.
Also, they are having a Copic Sale too!!!
I know where my birthday money is going!  lol

Have a FANTABULOUS DAY!!!!


*note: I'm struggling with inlinkz right now. I linked it individually in the descriptions.

Big Sister pop up box

Hello and Happy Monday. Today I am sharing a new style card that is literally popping up everywhere. I have a bunch of these that I saved from the Silhouette Store. I think they are adorable and extra fun to give. I changed mine up a bit because if you know me... I always like to 'add' that extra OOMPH!

I started by cutting out all the pieces in my Silhouette. I used lots of scraps of paper for this one. The dotted and grid papers are from Doodlebug and the Stars  and chevron is from Bella Blvd. I added the flower (K& Co) and the wooden flag to the inside of the box.  The banner is another cut file from Silhouette that I cut to size and used some twine scraps to add it.



The shimmery butterflies came off of an old card that someone had bought my daughter. 



I die cut the Banner and the "Big Sister" from Silhouette to personalize this box. It was just an "Awesome" box.  There is so much you can do with just a simple box. Just use your imagination. :)

That is all for today. I have lots coming soon. I just got the newest Simon Says Stamp Card Kit in the mail and I can't wait to play with it and share it with you. I hope you have a wonderful day.

xoxo
