Hello everyone! I am back with a Valentine’s Day card using the new February 2015 Simon Says Stamp Card Kit.
I LOVE this kit! It’s one of the best!
I got lucky and had already purchased a few of the coordinating items in the KISS KISS collection by Crate Paper before the kit was even revealed. So when it was revealed, I was so happy to be able to use added products from my stash!
The stamp set by SSS that comes in the kit is amazing! The different heart elements are all so versatile.
For my card, I decided to use the Gold Metallic Gelato included in the kit as well as a shaker element that I made using my Papertrey Ink Shakers and Sprinkles kit. Almost a year later, I’m still using supplies from this kit! What a bargain!
I added confetti hearts, pink sequins and chunky gold glitter to the inside of the shaker. I really wanted the brushstroke look using the gelato. I just scribbled the gelato on the Tim Holtz Watercolor paper and spritzed with water using a mini mister. Then I had fun “painting” the background with a medium paintbrush I had on hand. I wanted a bit more of a bright gold touch rather than the muted antique look, so to help get the look I wanted, I flicked some Heidi Swapp gold spray mist. I am very pleased with the results.
For the finishing touch I couldn’t decide between GOLD sequins or GOLD enamel dots! Lol. A girl can never have too much gold! That’s what Laura Bassen says… I ended up laying down a few glittery gold enamel dots from Studio Calico.
I’m also entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. All you have to do is make something that you can associate with the letter “H” to inspire your work! What fun!
And that’s all for today! Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY CRAFTING! :)
