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.

To buy a one off kit it costs $29.99 but if you subscribe it is $24.95, even at $29.95 it's great value for money but at $24.95 it's a steal!

Parker said...

Your very, very pretty card sample of the October 2015 SSS Card Kit has really inspired me to get the card kit. I like the 3 colors you used together of the black white and gold. What I like about the kit is this kit will broaden my "box" (get me out of the box) by using colors and color combos I don't normally or never use, plus I love the bits of shiny gold on the papers and esp. I'm looking forward to trying out the gold ink.
