Happy New Year. Hope everyone had a great holiday. A couple of goals I have for 2018 are to create more (I’ve already accomplished that with this kit!) and to go out of my comfort zones to try new techniques.
I loved the January 2018 kit from Simon Says Stamp. I’ve made 12 cards from this kit so far. I think this is the most cards I’ve made in the shortest amount of time from a kit. Here’s a look at the cards I made.
Card 1 uses the heart stamps from the stamp set and a few of the block stamps. The idea for this card popped into my head when I saw the stamp set. That solid/stitched heart is a favorite.Card 2 is a simple card using some patterned paper and a stamp from the kit. I also used some Nuvo drops around the sentiment.
I used a couple of the cut aparts for card 3 and my favorite sentiment from the set.For card 4, I stamped and cut out many, many of the block stamps, then lined them up on the card. It didn’t quite come out as I pictured it in my head, and if I had to do it again, I would change a couple of things, but I’m happy with it.
For card 8, I cut out a heart, temporarily adhered it to some white cardstock, and then used my distress ink to sponge ink around the heart. The pink glitter paper is from the December kit and the black is loose glitter I adhered to the card.
I used the latest sketch from Case this Sketch for card 9. Love how this clean and simple card turned out.
