Here are a couple more cards from the March Kit. The first card features the sketch from Retro Sketches and the second is a sketch from Fusion Card Challenge. In addition to the kit, I used the rectangle dies from Lawn Fawn and both Hero Arts Shadow and Simon Says Stamp inks.
I’m still working on my January Card kit from Simon Says Stamp. Today I made a card that is based on Retro Sketch #147.
I made this card yesterday, also with the January Simon Says Stamp kit. The label die is My Favorite Things and banners are Simon Says Stamp die.
I also made this card yesterday using Case This Sketch #104
Last, this card is based on The Paper Craft Crew 104. I used the perfect pearls mixed with water for this card then inked the edges to bring out the design.
For this card I used Retro Sketches design 146. I created a frame using My Favorite Things square Dies and stamped the sentiment using “Birthday Buddies” from Paper Smooches. I embossed the background using “Tiny Triangles” from Hero Arts and stamped the sentiment with Navy Hero Arts Shadow Ink. The button is also MFT die tied with Close To My Heart Waxy Thread.
This months kit is way outside my style, but just goes to show you that it’s still fun! I used the Retro Sketch challenge as a design start and added a piece of vellum because I didn’t want to cover up the “school or book” theme. I’m not thrilled with the embossing powder, which is in Verdigris. The flag is a My Favorite Things die, and the “note paper” die is an old Stampin’ Up punch.
Card 7 for Simon Says Stamp uses the Retro Sketches #121. I added in the sentiment and heart buttons from a Hero Arts stamp set called “Type”. I started the card by splattering Memories Mist in white. The twine is from Lawn Fawn and the dies are from My Favorite Things and Spellbinders.
Card 3 from Simon Says Stamp July Card Kit is based off Retro Sketch 120. I splattered the Blueberry Sour card stock w/Memories Mist in White and prepared the numbered card stock with Balzer’s Designs “Number Bits” and inked with Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. I colored the new Mama Elephant and Operation Write Home stamp set “In My Heart” with copics (don’t forget to pick yours up for a 20% OWH donation if purchased on Mama Elephant site). Sentiment is from My Favorite Things “Soldier Boy” and circle die is Lifestyle Crafts.
