March Simon Says Stamp Kit Card 7 & 8

Here are the last two cards from this March kit.  The first uses Operation Write Home’s Weekly Sketch #250.  I added some Bazzill heavy weight vellum and embossed the Hero Arts & Operation Write Home fundraiser stamp with Ranger’s Liquid Platinum embossing powder. The circles & rectangle were cut with My Favorite Things dies.

March Kit Card 7

My second card is an example of covering up a mistake.  I didn’t plan to have a flower at the top left, but I messed up the liquid pearls and tried to remove them but made a royal mess so I had to cover it with the flower.  I stamped the background with the flowers in vanilla Hero Arts Shadow Ink and Fog Simon Says Stamp ink.

  1. Hi, Kathy!

    Love the graphic look of your OWH Sketch card! And, had to laugh at the story behind the flower on your second card. Think we’ve all had those moments. 🙂

    Thanks so much for playing along with our sketch challenge.

  5. Two gorgeous cards! I’d say the ‘mistake’ was meant to be, because it gave you opportunity to exercise ‘design innovation’ in adding the eye-catching flower! Thank you for sharing your creativity in the ATSM gallery!
