3 Styles, 1 Stamp Set – Featuring SSS Summer Flowers

Hello!  

Today’s card is actually 3 cards featuring the Summer Flowers stamp set by Simon Says Stamp.  I wanted to use the set in three different ways to get more mileage from the stamps.

 

 

This first attempt is Clean & Simple card using Copic Markers on 120# Simon Says Stamp white cardstock.

 

 

 

 

This colorful version is more of a Shabby Chic style with lots of layers and torn edges.  I used Derwent Inktense pencils in purple and pink to give this a real feminine feel. Chunky glitter, glossy accents and some shimmer add plenty of sparkle. This was fun to make. 

 The close up shows a bit more of the dimension on this card.

 

 

Finally, this artistic version was a bit of a struggle.  I used the “smooshing” technique with Distress Ink, but found I couldn’t quite control the color placement.  In the end, I think it came out okay, even if I did have to help it a bit with a paint brush ;-).

I finished the card with a black layer of cardstock to help frame the piece.  

All of the cards feature sentiments from the Thoughtful Messages stamp set.

 

Thank you for dropping by today!  I’m happy to give more details, just let me know in the comments.

Enjoy!

Hello!

While waiting patiently for the next installment of the Simon Says Stamp card kit (October) to arrive in my mailbox, I actually made a card with the wonderful stamps, embellishments and papers in the September kit.  You really need to treat yourself to these card kits. They are well put together and have all the stuff you need to create several great cards.

SSS-Sept-CK-Thank-You-Banner Banners were cut on my Silhouette machine using the My Mind’s Eye Chalk Studio papers and shapes in the 6 Banner Set cut file available from SilhouetteOnlineStore.com (Design ID #20957).

The flowers at the bottom were stamped in white pigment ink (included in the kit) and colored with Prismacolor pencils. The flowers and Thank You sentiment are part of the “Journey of Life” clear stamp set included in the kit.  The dashed lines were drawn around the sentiment using a white gel pen and the banner stencil included in the kit. See, this kit IS full of awesome stuff!

The only things I used that were not in the kit are: white string, white embossing powder (for the sentiment), white gel pen and small rhinestones and pearls.

 I will post a card later this week using the NEW October card kit by Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for visiting!

Stephanie
