Simon Says Stamp | August Card Kit – Mandy’s Flowers Take Three

Hello friends! As I am writing this post I am also packing to go on vacation! Oh I am so thrilled to finally go away for a few days, relax and unwind. It’s been years since hubby and I have been on vacation and we can’t wait for this one to start.

Today I have my “take three” on using Simon Says stamp August 2018 Card Kit – this is yet another floral card that combines simple stamping, Copic marker coloring and pretty patterned paper from the kit. The kit is sold out, so if you didn’t get it – don’t worry! Many of the kit components are sold separately including the stamps and paper.

CARD DETAILS

Similar to my two previous cards (take one and take two) I started making this card by stamping my images and coloring them using Copic markers. For this card I also wanted to incorporate the picket fence image, so I stamped it twice to have it all all the way across my A2 card.

I used just one C1 marker to color fence (I added some light shading here and there). As for the potted flower – I used the following colors:

  • Pink: RV09, RV14, RV11, RV10
  • Green: G94, YG13, YG01
  • Yellow: Y15, Y13, Y11

Once again I cut these images out using scissors (there are coordinating dies available if you want to grab those). I covered the top part of my card base with patterned paper from BoBunny, next I added the 2 fence images overlapping each other and tied some twine from my kit.

I stamped “For You” in black in onto the bottom left portion of the card base and foam mounted my potted flower on top overlapping the fence. I also stamped “From my heart to yours” onto pink cardstock, trimmed into a strip and added under the flower. Lastly, I embellished this card using 3 enamel hearts in various shades of pink.

    1. Thanks for the tutorial. This is so pretty. Enjoy your vacation Yana.

    1. I love this card Yana, I know that the SSS monthly kits are very, very popular and they sell very fast; but you are giving us card crafters ideas using the SSS products. We can therefore recreate something similar with resources we have in our craft stash already. TFS :O) xxxx

    1. Wonderful card, Yana! I love those colorful flowers. Have a fun, relaxing time with hubby!

    1. Thanks for sharing this beautiful card, Yana! Happy vacation to you.
