Hello Flip Flops Card August SSS 2015 kit

by egarcia on August 25, 2015

Hi all,

Today I have another summer Simon Says Stamp kit card, this time from the August kit.

Hello Flip Flop CardEverything you see is from the August kit.  I started out with the Carrot Stick Shimmer Card stock for the background.  That gorgeous sunburst patterned paper comes from the Simple Stories Summer Vibes collection.

Hello Flip Flop Card Close upI stamped the flip flops on the patterned paper and fuzzy cut them out.  I then stamped the hello onto the patterned paper as well as the triangle border underneath it.  The images all came from the Flip Flop Season stamp set included in the kit. The final embellishing touch was the puffy heart sticker.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project, the very last of the summer season.  Stay tuned for upcoming Fall themed cards and projects.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Sail Away With Me July SSS Kit 2015

by egarcia on August 20, 2015

Hi all,

Today I continue to make my way through the summer kits from Simon Says Stamp with the July kit.

Sail Away With Me CardMost of what I used to create this card came in this kit.  I started out with the Soft Navy card stock from Simon Says stamp for the card base.

Sail Away With me close-upI stamped the boat from the Sailing stamp set included in the kit on multiple pieces of the patterned paper from Authentique, fuzzy cut each piece, and pieced it all together to create the sail boat on the card.  I used an older wave border from My Favorite Things to create the waves and used a copic marker to ink the edges.

 

Sail Away With Me Closeup2I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink.  Finally to embellish the card, I stamped the stars from the same stamp set and used my Sakura Clear Star pen to add the shimmer.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Be Happy SSS June 2015 Kit

by egarcia on August 18, 2015

Hi all,

It’s been rough keeping up with all the Simon Says Stamp Summer kits this summer.  But I’ve finally gotten to play with all June, July, and August kits and I’ll be sharing cards made with those kits in the next few posts.  Today’s card was made using the June kit.

Be Happy CardI just love the bright colors in this kit.  Pretty much everything you see came from the kit except for the ink I used to stamp the Be Happy. I started with the School House Red card stock in the kit for the card base.  The patterned papers are from the Doodlebug Sunkissed  6×6 paper pad.  Fun bright colors and patterns in this collection.

Be happy card close upSome of the patterned papers include papers that have squares with different summery images on them.  I cut one of those patterned papers to create the four square focal.  I added some Wink of Stella to some of the images to create some shimmer.  The sentiment comes from the Happy & Smile stamp set included in the kit.  I stamped it with coordinating red ink and added the sunglass sticker also from Doodlebug.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

You Make Me Smile Card

by egarcia on August 13, 2015

Hi all,

I have another happy  all occasion card for you today.   The design is pretty clean and simple but still oh so cute.

You Make Me Smile CardI created the background using a dots background stamp set from Impression Obsession and some versamark ink, a nice easy way to create a subtle tone on tone background.

The turtle comes from Lawn Fawn’s Critters in the Sea stamp set.  I stamped him onto white card stock, colored him in with copics, and fuzzy cut him out.  I die-cut the circle using Spellbinders Circles dies.  While the die was still in place I used some light blue ink to shade in the inside of the circle to create the illusion of water.  I then glued the turtle onto the circle.  The sentiment comes from the Clearly Besotted A Little Sentimental stamp set.  I stamped the sentiment onto white card stock, cut out the flag shape ends, and inked the edges a little with blue ink.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card project.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  To see more photos click on the top photo.

Just Wavin’ Hello Card

by egarcia on August 6, 2015

Hi all,

Today I have a fun summery all occasion card for you.

Just Wavin' Hello CardI started out creating the wavy ocean using patterned paper from the Daphne’s Closet 6×6 paper pad from Lawn Fawn.  I cut along the scallops to create the waves.

Just Wavin' Hello Dolphin close-upThe images come from the Critters in the Sea stamp set by Lawn Fawn.  I stamped the dolphin and used my copics to color him in.  Then I fuzzy cut him out.  These images are pretty simple so they are easy to cut out.  I stamped the sentiment with black ink right onto the white card stock base.

Just Wavin' Hello close-up2For the bottom of the sea I started out using a stitched hills border die and kraft card stock to create the sandy area.  I stamped the shells and used my copics to create a bit of shading.  The turtle waws stamped and colored with copics and also fuzzy cut.  I just loved creating this ocean scene with this Lawn Fawn set.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
