Celebrating "love" Day and Simon Says Stamp January Kit

As you see I place "" around the word Love as I feel Valentines Day is not just for those close intimate people in your life but for everyone you care about and really "love". You know those people that you would do anything for and mean the world to you.

With Simon Says January Card Kit, I was able to create these 10 cards that I think are adorable...if I do have to say so myself!

Below is a recap of the kit contents but if you would like to see the unwrapping of it in a video, please check it out in this previous post by clicking HERE

Link for Kit details HERE.

A group picture of all cards made. 10 in missing from group photo but will be seen below. There are lots of layers on top of these cards that can't be seen through still photo, but not too much to cost over charge for mailing...happy balance :)

 Card 1

On this card I used the ink in the kit, the xoxo stamp which is a wonderful shimmer ink, the stitched heart stamp. fussy cut some of the roses and popped them up; cut a saying from the paper. from my own stash I used sequins, lace and vellum cut using a border punch.

Card 2

Using the heart stamp from kit I stamped around the edge; the white flower was actual paper from the November SSS kit that was left over so I fussy cut around and added;rest came from kit; added sequins from stash.

Card 3

This card I used an edge trimmer to round 2 of the corners, used the ink from kit as well as a stamp- trimmed using a die from stash; stamped the other hearts on vellum; added drops using nuvo drops and added lace from stash.

Card 4

Again using corner rounder, rounded two corners as well as the tag in center; the entire panel is popped up from card; stapled the saying "be mine" to tag; both front panels were die cut with dies from stash for that stitched look. Can't be seen here but I covered random hearts on the front panel with glossy accents for dimension and texture. Lips puffy sticker is part of the kit.

Card 5

This is one of my fav's as I love the colors. Very simple as added some vellum to the upper and lower dotted panel; cut the center tag with a die from stash; stamped and cut the words below to create the phase; puffy heart stickers from kit

Card 6

So rich with the dark colors! I used two elements from the SSS November kit- the silver paper and the white flower; Again I fussy cut the flower out and the silver I used a coordinating die from my stash to create the back drop for the stamped saying; stamp from kit. For the heart I used the stamp from the kit and stamped the back of a double sided sticker paper- I then fussy cut the heart out, stuck it to the front panel and added a generous amount of the glitter from kit to it. I barnished it and then wiped excess glitter off (this glitter is not for those who do not like glitter as it was everywhere :)
Each part was popped up for great dimension. 

Card 7

The back panel of this card was first stamped with the words from the stamp set in the kit- most ended up being covered as I wasn't right sure where I was going with it; The hearts were created using the technique as described above; I used the large XOXO stamp in kit and ink, then used a die from my stash to trim the arrows. Puffy hearts from kit.

Card 8

The top mint panel was die cut from a die in my stash. This added a wonky stitch around the card; the rest was layering scraps from kit; stamped the large XOXO as well as the Kisses and hugs from the stamp kit. A tad of that left over silver added to edge.

Card 9

My scraps were getting low by this point so I did die cut a bit of that heart paper for the top and bottom of the panel..then layered.

Card 10 (missing card from group photo)

I "Really Like" this stamp! so often there are no other options then I love you with stamp sets that this one "I really Like You" is very refreshing! This last card was created by using the scraps left over...layering until happy with end results. The silver was die cut as was the sentiment from dies in stash. Even scrapped, ripped vellum was used here. Throw away nothing :)

I would like to share how the cards look on the inside and back. I won't show them all, just a few as they were all done the same way.

I don't include sentiments on the inside as I like to leave room for personalized messages but I do like to create a nice space for these messages

All of them have a back panel and then a die cut heart that has stitches around the edges.

The back of the card always has my hand made tag, but I did include a puffy sticker as I had enough left over from the lit to add. Each card either has a lip, a heart or a rainbow sticker.

This concludes this months SSS collection! Enjoy, all cards (includes the envelopes) are for sale if you are interested just message me :)
