I made my first Simon Says Stamp March kit card using The Sweetest Thing’s Sketch 258. The hero arts ink in Butter Bar and Charcoal as well as Simon Says Fog ink are perfect matches for this kit. I performed a little stamp surgery and cut one of the sentiments apart to get the sentiment “My Friend”. The circle and rectangle dies are My Favorite Things.
It’s the first Wednesday of the Month and time for The House That Stamps Built color challenge! The colors for our challenge put me in mind of spring and Easter – a much needed thought with this cold weather! You have until Tuesday, March 10th to enter for a chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate at Repeat Impressions.
Here are this weeks colors:
For my card I’ve created a Springy Easter scene using Repeat Impressions stamps, “My Sunshine 8402-M“, “Grass Border 1507-J”, and “Easter Egg (lg) 4504-M”. I colored the Easter eggs with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Mica’s mixed with a little water to make a watercolor paint. I also used some glaze pens to embellish the eggs. The grass was stamped with Hero Arts shadow inks and the sky was created with Pan Pastels and a handmade cloud stencil. Last, I popped up a My Favorite Things frame die on foam tape and called it done.
