Simon Says Stamp | July 2020 Card Kit Inspiration – Coloring on Patterned Paper

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I have a new handmade card to share, created with Simon Says Stamp July 2020 Card Kit. I really like the stamp set included in the kit this month, Home Sweet Home. I love anything and everything with little buildings and I always get so excited when I color images like these!

Here are some cards I’ve made in the past with a similar type of imagery: One Layer Holiday Village Card | Welcome Neighbour Cards | Shouting from the Rooftops Card | Bright Lights Card.

CARD DETAILS

I started working on this card by cutting patterned paper included in the kit in half. I love the size of the paper included – one sheet is enough to make 2 A2 cards (or one slimline card). Next, I pulled out my MISTI stamping tool and Versafine Onyx Black ink and stamped the town image 3 times on my panel going from the bottom up and moving the stamp each time to have a different part of town stamped.

I also stamped some additional images on white cardstock.

Next, I pulled out my bullet nib alcohol markers, I picked markers by Altenew, and colored these images using my blending-free coloring technique. Watch THIS video to learn more about this coloring method. Because my stamping was done on the light color patterned paper I was able to color it using my markers without any problems.

I also colored images I had stamped on white cardstock and cut those out using scissors. I adhered my main panel to A2 white side folding card base and foam mounted the cut-out images on top to add dimension to my card. I also stamped “Thinking of You” banner on pink paper, cut it out and foam mounted over the original banner.

Lastly, I embellished my card using Sea Glass jewels from Pretty Pink Posh.

I have other ideas for this stamp set and I’m going to start on my next card as soon as I finish typing up this post. Happy stamping!

    1. Fantastic, love the layers on this design, propped up enough to notice & get great effect but not to bulky for posting. Brilliant & in still in love with this colouring technique. Stay safe, healthy & happy x

    1. Love your card idea, Yana! Really enjoying this new color technique of yours ! The color under the banner sure adds a nice to touch, too.

    1. The stamp set was my favorite item in this release. When the budget allows, I may have to order I love the way you colored the scene.
