Simon's August 'Summer Dreams' Card Kit Reveal !

CLICK HERE if you would like to join in Simon's 'This is the Life' blog hop. 

YAY ! It's the 14th !! that means it's  the day for le Grande Reveale of the brand spanking new August Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp

'Summer Dreams' 
full of yummy ices and sunshiny colours and dreams of holidays,,,  !

Really, these kits sell out so fast, they really do sell like hot cakes, so if you would like one you really need to think of subscribing,,,, just sayin' :-)

To make the background I scribbled the Squeezed Lemon Distress Marker, mixed with a brush dipped in water on a craft sheet and then splattered all over, love this effect :-)

I also coloured some plain white cardstock using the Peacock Feathers marker and a blending tool for the mat layer and then used a Wink Of Stella pen to add a little extra sparkle on the edges :-)

For the sentiment I masked off parts and stamped in various colours of Simon's Inks. I fussy cut the little heart, coloured it, smothered it with wink of stella and then coated with glossy accents. Jennifer McGuire demonstrated this technique a while ago and it does give a lovely finish to hand made embellies :-) 

I think the Rock Candy Distress Glitter gives just the right amount of frosty coating :-)

and I am being very good at finishing the insides lately ,, hope I keep it up as I do think it makes the cards that bit more special ,, don't ya think ? :-)

and this is the kit !! Isn't it GORGEOUS!! ,, love the fab citrus colours :-)

Thanks for looking ! Hope you all have a fab sunshiny day ,,, going to raid the freezer now ,, nothing wrong with ice cream for breakfast is there !!! :-)
