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?!…
Just leave a comment below telling me your favorite card of the two I’ve shared today and I will randomly pick a winner from the comments below to receive a free class from Online Card Classes. Yay! You have until Monday, May 23rd at midnight EST to enter. Good Luck! 
(If you’re unfamiliar with Online Card Classes, click HERE for more information. I’ve taken several classes and I can’t recommend them enough.)
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

    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.

    I love the one with the Peacock Feathers color! Aqua is a favorite color of mine, so I have to go with that! They are both great combos though!
