Simon's October Card Kit is HERE!!

The 14th of every month is my favorite day, do you know why? It's the day that the latest Simon Says Stamp Card Kit is revealed!! Woo Hoo!! :-)

I am so happy that my October 'Here's Looking At You' Card Kit arrived in time to have a card ready for the reveal day!


I love the stamp set in this kit and know I will use it A LOT! There are My Story Papers and Journalling Cards  from My Minds Eye + a whole load of coloured cardstock and a very cute Simon's Exclusive 'Brushstroke Hello' craft die. Really, the whole kit is AWESOME!!

I used the chevron stamp, inked with Versamark Dazzle to create a shimmery watermark style background. I used a Misti Tool to get the gaps fairly even. I used one of the journalling cards, which already had the heart shape cut out and made it into a shaker, you know how much I love making these ;-)

One of the sheets of paper has a whole load of butterflies, just waiting to be cut out! After cutting I went around the edges with a grey marker, to get rid of the white edges, and then painted some Art Anthology Clear Sparkle Paint over the top. This not only gave it a lovely shimmer but it strengthened the paper slightly too.


and this is the kit !! Isn't it GORGEOUS!! :-)


If you haven't made a subscription to receive the monthly kits, you might want to think of doing it! They are always fabulous and they sell out so quickly, you wouldn't want to miss out ;-)

Hope you all have a great week :-)
Happy Crafting
