SSS June 2016 Card Kit plus OCC GIVEAWAY

Welcome. Today I have a few cards to share using the June Card Kit from Simon Say Stamp...
More details of the kit can be found HERE
It's called, "Look for the Miracles" and I really like the bright colors. I made two cards using an embossed resist technique and overlapping ink colors...

Before I get to the cards, I want to share where I got my inspiration. I loved this sheet of patterned paper in the kit and used it as a jumping off point to get started....

To create the cards, I stamped the flower images in the stamp set using VersaMark ink on to a piece of white cardstock in the kit. Then I heat embossed them using THIS embossing powder. I created two different sized circle mask using THIS masking paper and THESE dies. I picked circles that were slightly bigger than the flowers. I applied different colors of distress ink (since they blend so well) with THIS blending tool and layered the color on top of each other. Where the two colors meet, a new color is created!

For this card...



I used Squeezed Lemonade and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks. 

For this card...

I used Squeezed Lemonade and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks. 

I finished off the cards by stamping the sentiment on to a vellum circle and heat embossing it for some shine. Here's a closer look at where the the two ink colors overlap, creating a new color...


I added the enamel dots to some of the flower centers. I made sure that the vellum circle would intersect with one of them so I could hide adhesive behind it to keep the vellum in place. This is a trick I learned in the Clear & Sheer Class from Online Card Classes.  Speaking of Online Card Classes, how about a giveaway?!...

  9. Wow, absolutely gorgeous! I love the vellum circle! Your cards are even prettier than the patterned paper inspiration! I don't know how to choose - I actually love both of them! If I had to pick one, I'd say the pink, only because pink is my favourite colour. Love both, really! Thanks for another awesome giveaway!

  16. Super pretty cards Heather. I love the look of them both, they are so bright and summery. If I had to pick a favourite (this is hard), I would go with pink and yellow. But I do love the peacock feathers and yellow too - great combination. I see that you only have one enamel dot holding the vellum, so I am presuming you managed to hid a little behind the letters too? Looks wonderful, great inspiration too. Thank you.
