I am exciting to have a couple of cards to share with you on the Simon Says Stamp Blog. I have been purchasing and linking to the store for several years now. I LOVE their huge selection of product and their customer service. For a few month now they have monthly card making kits with Simon Says Stamps exclusive stamps and dies.

The first card was the card I made for Rick for our 19th wedding anniversary. I loved the colors in this kit and how it works for masculine cards.

The second card was created for last week’s Technique Lover Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. We were to use paper weaving on our projects. I love how the papers look together.

I hope you have time to check out the entire cards on the Simon Says Stamp Blog!  If you do, you may win a  prize pack worth over $25!!! Have a wonderful day!

I had fun with Saturday’s Inspiration challenge. For this sample I chose the target sheet on the Empiral style website as my inspiration piece. I thought the layout would make a great card sketch. I thought the finished card would work great for the current Tuesday Trigger on Moxie Fab World, so I will be entering it there as well.

The card base is a 3 3/4″ x 11″ piece of Sno Cone cardstock, folded in half. The bottom corners were rounded. Six circles were cut with a Standard Circle Nestabilities die out of an old My Mind’s Eye Lime Twist Life of the Party patterned paper pack.  The edges of the paper were sanded. The four top circles were adhered to the card front with foam adhesive squares, the bottom two circles with regular adhesive.

A piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock was cut with Simon Says Stamps exclusive Memory Box Banner die. A stamp from the Saying it with Banners set was stamped in the center of the banner with Jet Black Archival ink. The banner was folded and adhered over the bottom two circles with foam adhesive squares.

Two star images from Shoot for the Stars were stamped in Jet Black Archival ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut out and adhered to two of the circles. Part of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl was adhered next to one of the stars to finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
