1 Kit, 6 Cards | Simon Says Stamp Love Card Kit

I love card kits! I get to play with a bunch of supplies that is perfectly put together. Many times also products that I might not myself have chosen, I have found some of my favorite craft supplies this way. Coming back to crafting, I saw the new Love Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp. It was filled to the brim with goodness, from among others Doodlebug Designs which definitely is one of my favorite paper companies.

So I decided to pick it up. And instead of making a regular haul video I made a video making multiple cards from the kit. I have so many pieces left of those Doodlebug Deigns Odds and Ends Ephemera Die Cut Shapes, I could probably make 20-30 mini cards more. But I decided to stop at 6 different cards. You can find all my kit posts over HERE. There might not be so many right now, but I’m already waiting for another kit and more will follow.

I knew precisely where to start. When I saw the cute airplane with the flag after I knew I needed to make a card with it. And due to it’s share size I needed a slimline card. So I took the Surf Blue Cardstock and cut a 7″ x 8 1/2″ piece and then scored it lengthwise at 3 1/2″. I added the airplane and it’s flag on the card with foam squares and then sprinkled some ephemera clouds and hearts around it, and glued them directly to the cardstock. I then realized that I felt it needed something more, so I pulled out a cloud stencil and some Simon Says Stamp White Pigement Ink, and did some ink blending. I masked out the ephemera pieces where needed. The little white airy clouds was just what the card needed.

The second thing on my little pile next to me was the A2 envelope and the sentiment die. I had an idea but I must be true and say this time I didn’t delivery. But I know what I would change to make it better. First I would use a lighter glitter card stock or I would use the Surf Blue card stock for the letters. Secondly I would use a white card stock instead of the vellum to make the sentiment pop a little bit more from the pattern paper. And finally I would either place the sentiment a little bit off so that the teacup would have more room or chosen a smaller die cut.

Then I had the little envelopes and loads of little diecuts left. Also the pattern paper had one sheet of strips and one sheet of cards. So I cut the strips and the cards out. Then I made mini card bases by cutting pieces of 5 1/4″ x 3 1/2″ and scoring them at 2 5/8″. The first of the cards I used the cute heart stencil. I blended some kitsch flaming distress oxide ink over it and then spread some Moonstone Nuvo Glimmer Paste. After letting it dry I added a bunch of cute die cuts on it and cut a piece of the strips that had a sentiment on it. For card two I took a red pattern paper and made a layer that was 1/8″ smaller in both directions than the card base. I topped that with a red mailbox and a sentiment strip. For card three I found a wreath with two birds that fit perfectly on the card and I found one of the strips that worked great together with the wreath. The last card I used one of the cards I cut out from the pattern paper, and I combined it with a little tea bag. And that was all!
