Congrats Joy! Please message me via the contact button on my sidebar with your mailing info so I can pass it on to Simon. 

Over the next few months I plan to share some card sets I made over the summer to give as little gifts. Since I homeschool, I have more time to work on these sorts of projects during the summer and it takes the pressure off as things pick up during the fall. I find making these card sets can be a great way to use up some of my patterned paper scraps. I try to keep the designs fairly simple since I'm making a number of them and also try and keep them quite flat since I make 8 cards per set and present them in Crystal Clear Boxes with an envelope for each card. Some of these I plan to hand out over Christmas and some of them have already been given away. (My husband's the oldest of 8 who are spread across Canada, the US, and Scotland... and everyone but 2 in-laws got together earlier this month instead of Christmas this year). 

Anyways, here's the card set I'm sharing today with (mostly) some Basic Grey patterned papers I've hoarded for a VERY long time, lol:









I hope I've inspired you to pull out some of your paper scraps and use them up.

Thanks for stopping by,
Sarah

SSS October Card Kit: You Are Loved

Hi everyone!

I'm stopping by today to share a final card featuring the gorgeous Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit.


Here it is:


I started this card by die cutting the SSS Stitched Rectangle from some of the My Mind's Eye Blush Patterned Papers and heat embossing the stamped sentiment from Simon's Brush Stroke Messages with their new Steel Navy Embossing Powder. I then die cut Simon's Spiral Flower Die (included in the kit) three time and heat embossed the flowers with Hero Arts Copper Embossing Powder before adding them to the panel. At this point I was feeling stuck and not liking where things were at. I knew I had Simon's new Flip Over Hello Die from STAMPtember heading my way and was hoping it was sized right for this die cut panel....and it was! After die cutting, scoring, and adhering the flipped over parts I adhered the panel to another piece of the My Mind's Eye Blush Patterned Papers. I'm happy with the final  result.



If you're interested, you can pick up the Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit for just $29.99 + shipping. If you'd like to receive this kit and future kits for only $24.95 + shipping per month, you can SUBSCRIBE HERE.

Heidi, owner of Simon Says Stamp, has given me an extra Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit to pass on to one of you! Just leave a comment on any or all of my October 2017 Card Kit posts and I'll announce a winner Monday, Ocotber 25th.

Thanks for stopping by,
Sarah
