Well hello! Over the next few days I’ll be catching up on some projects I’ve made but haven’t had time to share. The summer holidays are always a struggle for me as I try and juggle everything with trips away and wanting to spend quality summer time with the children. However, today it is raining and so I thought I’d take the time to share this trio of cards I made using the Simon Says Stamp August Card Kit. I’ve linked all supplies at the end of this post.

When I opened this kit I was particularly struck by the designs of the PinkFresh patterned papers and puffy stickers and having fun with patterned paper makes for impactful cards in a jiffy!

Two of my cards are based on one piece of patterned paper. I love the Live More graphic and foam mounted that part of the paper on a card base covered with a toning pattern. I added the arrow stickers to emphasis the bullet points and then foam mounted the today sticker. Foam mounting the sticker gives the card more dimension which I love and one tip is that if you are going to do so then to negate the adhesive on the back of the sticker with a powder tool and then add the foam tape.

To draw attention to the today sticker I added a trio of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Bubblegum Blush. I did see that Laura Bassen also made a gorgeous card with this paper.

My second card uses the left over piece of patterned paper from the first card.

Again I mounted the piece on a card base covered with another toning patterned paper and added the arrow stickers to highlight the bullet points.

I love this round sticker from the puffy stickers pack – so fun! I foam mounted the sticker overhanging the patterned paper and then added a trio of Nuvo Crystal Drops to accent.

My last card uses one piece of patterned paper with a fun diagonal pattern combined with an on trend marble.

I added the patterned paper to a card base and then accented with a couple of patterned paper icons which I foam mounted along with one more puffy sticker.

I think repetition really helps pull a card set together and so I again added Nuvo Crystal Drops to accent.
