Simon Says Stamp July Card Kit #4

Sending My Love

231

 

Back to playing in my July Simon Says Stamp Card Kit for July.  This card uses this weeks Operation Write Home Sketch 231.  I colored the envelops with Copics in B14, B05 and B37 and used one of the stickers that come in the kit.  The “love” stamp is part of the “Lots of Love” stamp, only partially inked.  Don’t forget to stretch your stamps by using portions of sentiments or even cutting them if needed.  You can always put them back on the block the way they were intended.

This is a combination of two great Lawn Fawn sets, “Happy 4th” and “You’ve Got Mail”.  These are especially great for Operation Write Home cards.  I used Hero Arts Shadow Ink in Stonewash, Soft Vanilla, and Red Royal.  Cut a hole in the postbox to fit the letter in. Card stock is Club Scrap and Smooth Bristol.

I don’t often make Clean & Simple cards, but saw the Sketchbook Saturday Challenge and thought I’d give it a go with this Simon Says Stamp set called  “Absolutely Delightful”.  The butterflies are from the Flight of Fancy Tim Holtz and Sizzix collaboration of stamps and dies. I colored them with Distress Markers. Delightful was stamped with Hero Arts Shadow Ink in Just Rust, Dark Quartz, Soft Cantaloupe, Soft Apricot, Butter Bar and Soft Vanilla.
