Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit

Simon's done it again - put together some beautiful elements for their current Card Kit!

October-2015-Card-Kit-600-blog-hop
I made 2 cards for starters, and I never even got to the stamp set in the kit!  I used the papers and journaling cards primarily for my cards this time:

SSS Oct Card Kit

supplies: Simon's Cream cardstock for card base, My Mind's Eye patterned paper and journaling card, Simon's Black cardstock, Brilliance Galaxy Gold tear-drop ink pad, Simon's Painter Hello die, all found in this October card kit, my own gold foil paper

I chose this square journaling card that had the shape of a butterfly cut out of it, and framed it in black cardstock, then popped it above the gorgeous patterned paper, which has foiled gold here and there on it.  I also used the gold ink to put a gold edge all along that patterned paper.  And lastly I cut the sentiment from some gold foil paper and glued it in the center of the butterfly panel, which was then popped up above the card.  A simple design, but those triangles in the background give the effect of a million fluttering butterflies!

SSS Oct Cardkit

supplies: Simon's Cream Cardstock for card base, pattern paper, journaling card, and Pimento cardstock from My Mind's Eye, embroidery floss, all in October Card kit, my own Pretty Pink Posh sequins

Again, I chose this pretty journaling card, framed it in the included pimento cardstock, and then added some embellishments: tied a bow using the included embroidery floss, and fussy-cut and popped the butterfly from one of the other journaling cards, then added some sequins.  Love the sentiment!

Don't wait too long, I'm sure this one will be another sell-out!  For lots more ideas using this kit, don't miss the October Card Kit gallery at the Simon Says Stamp blog!

  5. Wonderful cards Lin :-) I've only ever tried one card kit (SC), perhaps I should take the plunge and try a SSS one. Thank you for such lovely inspiration.
