SSS August Card Kit

(This is the second post of the day. If you're looking for Day Two of the Neat and Tangled Release, click HERE)

Hi! I have two cards to share with you today that I created using the Simon Says Stamp's August card kit, Summer Sunshine...


Here's the first card...
I started by stamping the Hello sentiment from the kit's stamp set using THIS ink on to a piece of THIS paper. I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I added water to several different distress ink colors and added the watercolor around each letter. The distress colors matched the patterned paper perfectly! I die-cut the piece using the largest heart from THIS die set. I adhered it to a piece of patterned paper from the kit and added a sentiment stamped with THIS ink and then clear heat embossed.

I finished off the card by adding small hearts punched out of the sparkly cardstock included in the kit. I added a coat of glossy accents on top for some shine...

I knew I wanted to make a shaker card for my second card because the kit has some beautiful glitter/confetti included along with a clear stamp pocket that I used to create the window....
The paper pad has a few sheets with small squares of patterns. I chose a cloud one and used that for inside my shaker window. I used THIS die to frame it out, stamped the greeting in THIS ink, and added a few drops of color along with some glossy accent dots to finish off the card.

A closer look...

I love how it turned out. This is definitely one of my favorite card kits! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
