SSS February 2018 10 Cards 1 Kit (Part 1)

Simon Says Stamp's February card kit was packed full of fun new products to try along with a fabulous stamp set of 'crafty' sentiments and images.
Here are my first five creations from this kit.

Card #1 A very simple, but pretty card. I used a MFT Stitched Basic Edges Die to create a border for my white card base with some of the patterned paper. The sentiment on this card also came from one of the papers. Some of the Studio Katia gems and a little  Wink of Stella were the finishing touches to this card.

Card #2 Another simple, but sweet card I created using some of the patterned paper. I made an A2 size card panel with the sewing themed paper and then heat embossed my sentiment on the orangey yellow paper that also came in the paper pack. The finishing touch was the sewing machine wood veneer which I colored with an alcohol marker and then covered with Wink of Stella. I used some of the Studio Katia gems on this card as well.

Card #3 This card was fun to create as I really had no idea where I was going with it and just wanted to play around with the Daniel Smith watercolor sampler that came in the kit. I think it turned out pretty cool. One of a kind for sure. :) For the sentiment on this card I just heat embossed one of the sentiments with white embossing powder on black cardstock.

Card #4 While this card did not work out as I envisioned, I think it turned out cute. I cut out shapes (originally planned as triangles) from the typewriter patterned paper that would draw the eye to the silver heat embossed 'thanks' sentiment. I love that the sentiment looks like old typewriter keys making it perfect for the paper that I chose. For a little shimmer, I added some Wink of Stella to all those little typewriters.

Card #5 For this card, I used some bright and pretty Hero Arts inks to create a card panel with the striped border stamp. The background for the sentiment was created by ink blending with some mustard seed Distress Ink. Both were cut out with Avery Elle Wonky Stitches Dies. A little bit of Glossy Accents over the 'hello' portion of the sentiment added a some dimension. All were layered on a yellow A2 size card base.

Five more cards from the kit will be coming soon!

Love & Hugs,
