Simon's October Card Kit

I received my Simon October Card Kit yesterday and dived in first thing this morning!  If I'd designed a kit, this would be pretty close to it!

SSS Oct CardKit

supplies: all supplies from Simon's October Card Kit, Nutty Over You stamp set, Burnt Orange, Audrey Blue, and Dark Chocolate cardstock, Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid for Fall dp, Little B Acorn sticker), plus: ivory cardstock, Simon's Stitched Circle die, Audrey Blue, Poppy, Bright Tangelo, and Cup o' Joe inks, Nuvo Caribbean Ocean crystal drops (from last month's kit), adhesive foam squares

SSS CardKit Oct, detail

I cut a stitched circle, then used the next smaller size of that set to lightly draw another circle inside as a pattern for my stamping.  After stamping the brown leaf sprig all the way around, I could erase my pencil lines, and then add my other elements, using ink colors that matched the background plaid.  This stamped circle was then popped above the rest of my card.

Here's the amazing kit for this month - don't wait too long!
