Simon Says Stamp | October 2017 Card Kit – Trio of Cards

Hello, friends! It’s the 14th of the month and it means it’s time for new card kit from Simon Says Stamp (more about the kit and kit subscription below)! This month kit surprised me with gorgeous rose gold foiled papers from My Mind’s Eye – they are simply fabulous and instantly take any project to the next level.

I made several projects using my kit and still have plenty of supplies left to create additional cards.

CARDS DETAILS – YOU ARE LOVED

I started working on these by cutting out flowers and leaves from 2 patterned paper sheets from my kit. I love papers where I am able to cut out certain elements to use as faux die cuts for my cards.

I covered the entire front of an A2 side folding card with foiled polka dot paper and foam mounted a sheet of striped paper cut at an angle forming an odd reversed V. I used fun foam to adhere the striped paper to make it more durable. Next, I stamped You Are Loved in black ink onto a strip of white cardstock and foam mounted onto my card. I arranged my cut out pieces into a floral cluster, adhered onto the card and embellished using Nuvo Drops in Antique Rose.

CARDS DETAILS – THANK YOU

This card is a smaller 4 Bar size ( 3 1/2 x 4 7/8). I used the same approach to create this project. First covered the front of the card with patterned paper, next added a srtip of rose gold cardstock (it’s my new fave!) and topped it off with blue polka dot pattern cut at an angle.

 I didn’t add any Nuvo dots here aside from the one on the center of the flower. Here’s a close up:

CARD DETAILS – YOU GOT THIS

My last project for the day is a square 4 1/4″ card. I picked a few of the patterns, cut them into strips of various width and sliced at an angle for a unique looking background.

I embellished this card using another faux die cut floral cluster and added a Steel Navy heat embossed sentiment – You Got This. Steel Navy is a new color of embossing powder from Simon, it is included with the kit.

    1. I love how you used the papers on this kit for your cards, specially love the square one! Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Your cards are beautiful – what a fabulous new kit!!! Thanks so much for sharing!

    1. Love these patterned papers. A while back I bought a paper pad that had rose gold mirror paper in it and I fell in love with using it! It’s just so beautiful. Love how you’ve used it here. The square card is my favorite too! The look of having the stripes of patterned paper sort of “off set” is just stunning and eye catching! And I just love the color combo!! Thank you, Yana.

    1. Oh Yana, these are so beautiful. I just saw them over on SSS and had to come back to tell YOU myself, how beautiful they are. I enjoyed looking at them, they are so pretty!

    1. I am really loving this kit! Your cards are so pretty and I love that they mainly use the patterned paper from the kit
