Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Limited Edition Card Kit

  Hello - and HAPPY STAMPtember - a month long party by Simon Says Stamp to celebrate all things stamping. 

Today is the reveal of a special limited edition STAMPtember Card Kit! Here is a look at this super fun kit:

I have two cards to share with you using mostly this new kit - only a few small additions!

This first card may be my favorite! Haven't tried this technique before - but it was super fun, and I love the effect. I used the included Freestyle Flowers 6x6 stencil to blend clear embossing ink over watercolor cardstock, then heat embossed with the included clear embossing powder. Then I randomly watercolored over the image with the sheet of Daniel Smith watercolor samples, and left that to dry overnight before cleaning the stray watercolor off the embossing. Such a fun dimensional watercolor look!

I trimmed my panel down and mounted it with foam on a cardbase created with the white cardstock in the kit, then added some sentiments. The sentiment at the top is not from the kit - I used a CZ Design Sentiment Strip - Reverse Happy, and added gold foil to it - be still my heart! Now I want to foil all the things - haha! I did the same thing with the sentiment underneath, but that one is one of the ones included in the kit. Either way, the foil adheres to the black areas of the preprinted sentiments which is awesome!

I adhered both of those with foam adhesive again, then tucked a few Pretty Pink Posh gold jewels around for some finishing sparkle!

The next card is bright, bold, simple, and just plain happy!

As soon as I saw this pattern paper, I knew I wanted to use it on a card - and this stamp image was just perfect to complement it!

I stamped it with black versamark ink, and heat embossed with some of the clear powder in the kit. Love the simple gorgeous shine and gloss this adds to the image! I then trimmed it down, matted with some white cardstock from the kit, and added that to a cardbase created with some of the Sunshine cardstock in the kit.

Finally, added a sentiment from the kit, heat embossed in white on black cardstock and mounted with foam adhesive. Isn't it so sunny, bright, and happy?!?!?
