Simon Says Stamps July 2019 Kit

Well, i got my kit a little, (a lot) late because of a doopy problem with my email address on my SSS account. Because I paid with PayPal last month, my SSS account populated with the email address associated…. and sent my invoice to that email address. Along about the middle of the month (well probably sooner) when I didn’t have my kit but I was seeing cards on Youtube, I called them and found out where my invoice was. And paid it immediately… and my kit was in hand 3 days later! My whine is over now… and I can post a couple cards I made last night!

@SimonSaysStamps July kit

The first card is a shaker card I made using the cute little hexagon die that came with the kit. I cut it 3 times out of a piece of patterned paper from the Honey Bee Stamps “The Bees Knees” paper pad that was in the kit, lining the die up each time with the previous cut. I filled it with the adorable sequins included… there are yellow and black, along with two different golds. I stamped the bee, the word BEE (I cut apart the “BEE yourself” sentiment stamp) and one of the little hearts and watercolored them. I fussy-cut them out and adhered them to the card with foam tape, which I taped to a top folding cardbase made from Neenah 110# Solar White cardstock that I doctored up by coloring a 1/2″ strip on all 4 sides with black ink. I stamped “yourself” with Memento tuxedo black ink and added some more sequins and also covered the heart with some glossy accents. I had to use a little hexagon I cut from the patterned paper scraps to cover up a pen boo-boo from when I went around the outside of the paper with black ink. And that’s my first card!

My second card is stamped directly onto some more patterned paper from the Honey Bee paper pad. It’s a wood-panel image, and I stamped the two bees holding hands, a heart, and the honeycomb, using Memento tuxedo black ink and colored them with my Zig markers. I stamped “You’re the bees knees” and “Thanks for bee-ing there” on the upper right side. I added some sequins and used glossy accents on the heart again. I used tape to add it to another piece of the patterned paper for some contrast and adhered it to my Neenah cardbase using foam tape. A super easy card.

I will definitely be making some more cards with this kit!
