Simon Says Stamp April Card Kit

I just received my SSS April Card Kit, and I'm jumping on the bandwagon with everyone else who says this is an outstanding kit!


I adore both the stamp set and the beautiful papers that are in it, so I challenged myself to use ONLY the supplies in the kit and I made 2 cards, 1 using all stamps, and the other using mostly papers.

The first stamp I used was this light rays one; I stamped it 3 times in an almost-circle in butter bar ink, then oversamped the lightbulb and used one of the little heart stamps and red royal ink to put the heart in the center.  I ADORE the handwriting in these sentiments!  (wish mine looked like that....)  So, a very simple design........I'm thinking I may send this to our oldest son for his birthday later this month.....

Like I said, the papers in this kit are amazing - they are from a Simple Stories DIY Boutique paper pad - lots of black and white patterns, backed in these bright solids, and then this gorgeous floral on black, which makes the colors pop even more.  The sentiment is perfect, and I added this little stitched hearts and some of the golden enamel dots also in the kit.  

RUN, and order this kit before it's gone, as I'm sure it will be!

  1. These are great, Lin! I especially like the colors of the 2nd one, and that sentiment is so cute. I've got this kit in my SSS cart and hope it's still available when I order this weekend!
