Card Kit Creations

Anyone who knows me knows that I love the color blue.  I especially love creating with shades of blue. So I was very excited to see that the July card kit for Simon Says Stamp was predominately blue.  There are also some beautiful accent colors of gray, golden yellow and a mauve tone.  I have a couple of cards I made using the card kit I would like to share with you today.

The first card was inspired by a creation from Debby Hughes at Lime Doodles Design.  If you are not familiar with Debby's work I highly recommend you check out her blog.  She is amazing and a super photographer.

I felt the white embossing on vellum looked so elegant, especially against the dark blue.  The traditional blue & white has always been one of my favorite.

The next card is an idea that is done frequently, although I have not really tried it before.  I used several of the images in the stamp set "Handwritten Floral Greetings' included with the kit to create a patterned paper.  I used that as my background paper.   I used my MISTI to make sure I got nice, crisp images.

I have to say I am quite please with the way it turned out.

This is really a fun technique and there are so many options.  You could make several looks with one stamp set and a few different colors.  Be sure to include blue of course.

I have made a couple other cards with the kit that are posted over on Instagram. I would love for you to check those out.
