Yesterday was the reveal day of the April Card kit by SimonSaysStamp. And once again the kit is packed with goodness in a lovely color combo. Smells like spring with all those rainbow colors! It’s definitely a kit for building up your stash with a big versatile stamp set, a stencil a couple of distress oxide ink pads and even a new distress brush!
I made 10 cards to inspire you, trying to use supplies only from the kit and basic tools/dies from my stash. Come along with me as I share my 10 cards and make sure to join the GIVEAWAY!
A lovely card that screams spring! All I did was to stamps color and cut out the images. Then popped them on my window card.
For this card I stamped my butterflies on one of the patterned papers and cut them all out. Really easy to make just take your time to cut out the butterflies neatly.
The design on some of the butterflies really remind me of stained glass. So I totally emraced this look for this card. I used my color pencils and did no shading at all. Just using a different color on each of the areas. The butterfly is also embossed and it really gives that look and feel that I was going for.
A lovely card using one of my favorite combos, yellows, oranges and blues. I used the two distress oxide inks included in the kit for this one.
The stencil gives you so much versatility and can be used in so many different ways. Here I used my distress oxide inks in a rainbow color order but you can use any inks that you have for similar look.
For this card I used the stencil again and if you notice two of the butterflies can be overlapped. So inking one of them gives you a solid image and the other gives you the details. For the details I used my glimmer paste. It’s the best way to introduce glitter in your card without the mess!
Here is water colored card, and a very artistic looking one! I was going for that messy look and I used my Nuvo Aqua flow pens to color everything, Fun fact! That’s the only card out of the 10 that does not feature a butterfly!
Now this is my favorite from the whole bunch! A stained glass look in an acetate window. Check the video on how easy it is to make it!
The stencil is so versatile and you can make endless combinations… here I used silver glimmer paste over the butterflies with those lovely details.
And here is the last card for today. I used my texture paste for this one and you can take it a step further if you apply glitter on top before the paste dries. One of my favorites too for sure!
