Simon Says ~ August Card Kit

This months card kit from Simon Says Stamp was filled with yummy colors as well as some really fun embellishments. I enjoyed working with the papers and goodies from this kit. Here are some of the cards I created.

Love the Chevron pattern stamp!!

The wood bike was a challenge for me as I've never used anything like it before. After coloring it with Sharpies, I added some Stickles glitter glue to make it shiny. I thought it came out kind of cute!

This birdhouse card was inspired by one of my favorite creative gals, Kittie Caracciolo over at Kittie Krafts. Her creations are amazing and I've learned so many new techniques from her, including how to make the cutest homemade flowers as you'll see in the next two pictures.

Now I'm off to make more cards!

Wow! You really cranked out those kit cards! They are all gorgeous and so creative! Love how you made flowers out of the circle stamps. Love the glittery bike too! Thanks for visiting my blog yesterday :)

What a great idea to use the border stamp for grass on the card with the flowers. Very cute.

Oh my gosh! These are amazing!!! Seriously! :) I am so impressed with all you did with your kit -- and that bicycle -- Be still my heart! That is so stinkin' cute! I am now bummed because I ruined my bicycle trying out a new technique because I totally would've had to "borrow" your treatment of the bicycle!!! (trust me, mine was unsalvageable! :(

Thank you for visiting my blog today and for your sweet comments! I have enjoyed perusing your blog too... you are very talented and it is evident that you really have a love for this hobby of ours! :)
