I then cut up the the Avery Elle stamp pocket included in the kit and adhered behind the Hi die-cut with Ranger multi-medium matte (strong, no visible leakage!) making sure to replace the piece of the die between the H and the I. I then surrounded the Hi on the back with the Best Creation foam squares that came in the kit, ensuring no gaps (don’t want the bits in the shaker to escape). I sprinkled in some of the Martha Stewart Magic Fairy Dust (awww) and backed it onto my base card.
To finish I added some of the October Afternoon Summertime pillow puffs cloud stickers and the ‘summer’ greeting from the kit. (If you notice, i adhered the cloud on the right over the i as i thought it looked like a sun 😀
For my next card, I decided to go a little more subtle. I trimmed the SSS smoke cardstock to 11″ x 4.5″ and scored at 5.5″ for a top folding card. I embossed the lower half with Dazzlerz embossing paste in Sour Apple (it is SO shimmery I need more of this stuff) using the SSS Medium Dots Stencil (not included in the kit). Simon – please get some of this in your store :D.
While the paste was drying, I die cut a scrap of Neenah Solar White 80b card using a medium sized My Favorite Things pierced tag die and stamped the ‘Sunnier Days Ahead’ (love this sentiment) from the Flip Flop Season stamp set in the kit, using different complementary colors of ink from the new SSS Color of Fun release (Scuba, Catkin, Jellybean, Cloudy Sky and Spring Rain) over the tag, added some scraps of ribbon from my stash and popped it up on the foam squares from the kit once the paste was dry.
I think you’ll agree, two completely different looks from the same kit!! Supplies I used are linked below (where available at Simon Says Stamp).
I’m also entering these into the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge. Be sure to check it out!
Hope you enjoyed, happy crafting!
