Here is another scrap card from my May Simon Says Stamp kit. When I was done I ran the whole card through an embossing folder from The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby). The sentiment is embossed w/white powder and the faux stitching is made with my favorite pen, the Signo Uniball White Pen. I splattered the background with Dylusions “White Linen”. I love how many cards you can get out of one kit.
Feeling a little silly when I made this one. I wanted to use one of the monsters in this kit, but wasn’t sure how to put it on the card. Then, I had an Ah….ha… moment – I’ll use a tee shirt die from My Favorite Things. Not sure the “thanks” sentiment goes with it, but it needed something. I used the kit stencil and distressed the edges. Entered in Simon Says Stamp anything Goes Challenge. Thanks for checking out my card!
Here is Card 10 (well, actually 11, but I sent number 10 in the mail without taking a picture – oops). I’m getting down to my scraps now so I just pieced a few pieces together on a card front, slapped on a sentiment and some die cut stars and called it done. Entered in Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
This card is inspired by Laura Bassen of Doublestick Heaven and is a technique of adding Distress Ink’s to a stamping block, spritzing with water and applying to watercolor paper. Check out her fun video for details. The sentiment stamp is from the new release from Simon Says Stamp called Friendship Messages. The butterfly is a Cherry Lynn Die. I entered the card in Shopping our Stash, and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
