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. Compensated affiliate links used.
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.
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.
My last card uses one piece of patterned paper with a fun diagonal pattern combined with an on trend marble.
I think repetition really helps pull a card set together and so I again added Nuvo Crystal Drops to accent.
Have you checked out the Card Kit subscription from Simon Says Stamp? It’s a great way to get a box packed with supplies each month and all the hard work of choosing products that work well together has been done for you. You often get to try brand new products too such as the Distress Oxide ink included in the August kit.
