Simon's September Card Kit cards

1_306259_ZM

Have you seen the new September Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp?  It's particularly appropriate for September and the start of school, as it's all about books!  I had such fun with the stamp set!

I used the included mini Gathered Twigs distress ink pad to stamp my shelves and picture frame, and then pulled out some of my favorite colored inks to build the rest of my card.  The stamp set is called "To Thine Own Shelf".  The card base on this and my next card used Simon's khaki cardstock, which is in the kit.

The papers and stickers included in the kit are from October Afternoon's Public Library collection, and I had to build a card around that cute little boy in a circle, as I often get lost in a book!  The wooden dots are also in the kit.

Hope these have given you some ideas on how to use the kit.  I'll see you back here again Wednesday for our regular Wednesday challenge at Simon Says Stamp!
