Simon Says Stamp..Card Kit May...


Hi,

Happy Friday!!

Lemon arrived last night - whoop whoop!

Today is also our 1 year anniversary of being in NYC! How quick the time flies.

To celebrate I thought that I would show off my makes from the SSS May card kit - this is my first one and I think it is total VFM and might help me curb my craft expenditure (yeah right)..

Here's the kit for May -
You get card stock, patterned paper, a stamp set and a few other things. This month we got a stencil, a mini Distress ink, a new mini round distress inker and a set of fun heart enamel stickers.

I have made 3 cards so far. The main photo is my fave..unfortunately I had to take the photo at night, so it's not the best..and my washi tape is lifting! But I tried a new technique..heat embossing with a stencil :) I used the stencil from the kit, I got a bit too much Versamark ink on the card, so ended up with the black line, but it kind of gave me a border! The stamp and the paper are from the kit too.


This card uses papers from the kit, love the patterned one and the Dude stamp. The Happy Birthday stamp is by Woodware. Love the simplicity of it.


My final card uses a paper and 3 stamps from the kit...loving the shoes and the spots.

I was always a bit nervous about joining a kit club, but this has really changed my mind.

Have a great weekend, we are off to Atlantic City to celebrate Lemon's 40th.

  2. Love the sneakers card, that's a great image. And I think that dude stamp rocks, great one in the collection. Good luck curbing that expenditure - or you could win big in AC baby! x
