Simon Says Stamp September 2015 Card Kit

Hi! Simon Says Stamp released their September Card Kit today....
Simon Says Stamp's September Card Kit can be found HERE

...and was kind enough to send me one to play with. I was instantly drawn to the stamp set in the kit. I love it and thought I would create a couple of birthday cards...


I stamped the balloon image multiple times across the card using various Simon inks in rainbow color. I wanted them to have the look of a real balloon, so I went back and stamped the images again using VersaMark ink and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. I love the shine it gives (It was hard to photograph-THIS is a better picture of the shine)


See those stars? The kit comes with a pack of really cool acetate cards. I took the gold one and used THIS star die to make my own embellishments. I stacked a few on top of each other so they would pop. I also used THIS wave border die to make the scalloped border along the bottom of the card.

My second card...
...used all the tiny images in the kit. I love to create backgrounds from several small images. After covering the entire background I die-cut THIS balloon die from the center and adhered some foam underneath. I traced the image with a black marker to make it stand out more. I finished off the card with some black string at the bottom of the balloon.

A closer look...

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Oh, and the winner from THIS post is Shari. Congrats. Email me your address and I'll get your ink pad out to you.
