October Card Kit Blog Hop



Hi all :-) I am thrilled to have been asked to take part in this very special STAMPtember® October 'Here's Looking At You' Card Kit  Blog Hop!

You should have arrived here from the lovely and awesomely talented Laura Bassen's Blog, if not then you need to start from the beginning on the Simon Says Stamp Blog 

I made this card to share today


After dusting a scrap of black card with a Powder Tool I inked the gorgeous heart stamp with Gold Pigment Ink then embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. In the kit there is a sheet of patterned paper with loads of gorgeous butterflies which is perfect for fussy cutting and using as embellishments! 

Every kit is awesome, but I have to say, this kit is my absolute FAVE! the gold foiled papers, the stamp set and die, are altogether gorgeous! 


I made another card using this kit yesterday, if you would like to see that too CLICK HERE

Simon Says Stamp is giving away a $25 gift certificate along each stop of the hop. Leave me a comment for your chance to win! Winners will be announced on Friday, Sept.18th.
