Card Kit Creations: Simon Says Stamps August 2022

I get card kits from multiple companies every month and although I have used them many times I have not highlighted them…that’s about to change. I am starting with Simon Says Stamps August 2022 kit with the beautiful Vintage Garden stamp set. You can see the full set that comes in the box at

My first card went together really quickly. I took some Reflections Shimmer paper and embossed it with the gorgeous embossing folder in the kit.

I used the add-on heart die to cut out some of the patterned paper. Oh, these are some of the most beautiful patterned papers I’ve seen — very classy. I edged it with the included SSS Clear ink and added SSS Silver embossing powder to the edges. Because the edges are not even, I also used a Distress brush pen to get in the nooks and crannies before adding the embossing powder. The ribbon is special – from the aisle bows at my wedding in 2015. I wrapped it around the card front and glued it down then popped up the whole front onto an also included Smoke card base with foam tape. I used some of the small foam squares to adhere the flowered heart above the ribbon. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment with the same silver embossing folder then used the die to cut it out. Adding that then the clear drops finished off a beautiful card for number one of this kit.

Card Number 2 was pure FUN and out of my norm. I stamped the flowers on ivory cardstock and then added clear embossing over the black ink. I used some Simon Says reinkers for watercoloring the butterfly and flowers, then die cut them out when dry. For the background I used Simon Says Stamp STITCHED WHIRL BACKGROUND Wafer Die on Neenah 110# cardstock and stamped the sentiment from the Vintage Garden stamp set from the kit. To add dimension I added foam tape to the back adhering it to the lilac card base. The die cut flower pieces were popped up with the foam squares from this kit also. I think this one became my favorite and my husband was really impressed (lol).

I ended with a Clean and Simple card. The butterfly was watercolored with the flowers above. The background here is the Simon Says Stamp DETAIL BOHEMIAN PLATE Wafer Die. I love these background wafer dies…they add so much texture without taking away the designs of cards. The sentiment is from the Vintage Garden stamp set in the kit. I added just a few clear droplets for embellishment.

I still have many more beautiful things of this kit I have not yet used…the gorgeous rose gold paper, the beautiful patterned papers, and the embossing folder that will be used over and over. This kit is wonderful and such a great value. Thanks, Simon Says for your great products.

Hugs to all who came to visit. Have a wonderful day!
