Hello, Friends! Happy Sunday! So, today, I've got a Valentine's Day card to share with you. I recently did a re-set of The Hive and I pulled out several years worth of Simon Says Stamp card kits that I've been squirreling away for reasons unknown. And Friends, when I say years, that is no exaggeration. I've got untouched card kits dating back to 2015.😞 I see the kits online and they are soooo preeeety. Then I purchase the kits, receive the kits, open the kits and love the kits and then I box up the kits and put the kits away. Whhhyy?! Well now...I need to USE the kits!! My plan is to take a kit and create cards and projects using as many of the kit items as I can. The cards will be sold, donated, mailed out, or gifted. I am overwhelmed by how much STUFF I've accumulated over the years. So. That brings me to my card share for today. I used components from the February 2019 Simon Says Stamp card kit. Gorgeous, isn't it?
What drew me in? It was the stamp set and the patterned papers! The images in the stamp set are beautiful and the scripty words are Kristina Werner's handwriting. LOVE that! Plus, I love all things vintage. This kit was just calling my name!
Here is the first card I created with it...
You can see I've used three of the patterned papers, the card stock, the twine and the stamp set. I love that pop of black! In addition to the black card stock from the kit, I added some Love From Lizi Peel Off stickers to frame strips of the patterned paper. They add shine, sparkle and interest without adding bulk and that's a win for me!
I also finished off the inside of the card...
The stamp that I used for this came from the SSS February 2015 card kit. For continuity, I used more black card to mat the sentiment panel and more Love From Lizi black Peels Offs. The glittery pink hearts are also from Love From Lizi. I dusted a little Antique Linen Distress Ink around the edges to add to the vintage feel. I am pleased with how it turned out. (This card has been sold)
Well, that's it for me. I will continue to create with this kit until the supplies are exhausted. Then that will be one down and many, many, MANY more to go. Are any of you hoarding card kits? I can't be the only one, right? Right?! LoL! Oh! And by the way, today the March 2021 Simon Says Stamp card kit is being released. Have you seen it? It's another beauty! Do I need it? Nope! Will I buy it? Yep! 😄
Thank you for stopping by today! Have a wonderful Sunday and Happy Valentine's Day!
