I'm back today to share a fairly quick card with you all. I gotta be honest, I'm not over the moon for it and I really struggled to get it together. However, I feel it's always good to share everything and besides I am over the moon for the Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit.
If you're interested in any of the products I've used, I have links (some affiliate links) throughout and at the end of the post. Click here to read my full disclosure policy.
Whenever I have a hard time putting a card together, my kids call them "Squirrel Cards". I go in 50 different directions and I'm always calling one of my kids into my room to ask their opinion and then I usually change my mind after I've just agreed with them. I usually get the eye roll and head toss and they holler "Squirrel!" at me as they walk out of the room. Driving my kids crazy is in my job description, so it's cool.
I started by stamping the Heart Stamp from the I See You Stamp Set on a scrap of Neenah White Cardstock with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then colored the hearts in with Red Copic's (see links below for colors) and fussy cut them out.
For the Front Panel, I stamped the Chevron Stripe with Simon Says Stamp Black Ink, then mixed water, Ranger Perfect Pearl in Perfect Pearl and Ranger - Tim Holtz Distress Paint in Black Soot and splattered on to the Panel with a paint brush. I die cut the Panel with a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle Die.
I used the Painted Hello Die and die cut a piece of DCWV Gold Foil Cardstock. Using Versamark Ink and Simon Says Stamp White Embossing Powder, I heat embossed 2 of the sentiments from the Set on a piece of Simon Says Stamp Black Cardstock and fussy cut them out.
For embellies, I made my own enamel dots using Ranger Enamel Accents. Once they were dry, I put them on a piece of Post-It Tape so I could hold them, then "smooshed" them into my StazOn Gold Ink Pad.
That's it peeps! Up next will either be Avery Elle Twisted Treats or the Winnie & Walter STAMPtember Exclusive for Simon Says Stamp How We Roll. Also, Simon Says Stamp is having a Copic Autumn Coloring Sale! Woot! 25% off until October 14th. Use code FALLCOPIC. See site for details.
In the meantime, I hope you've enjoyed my cards today! Don't forget you can follow me on Instagram and on Facebook! I would love to see you there.
