Simon Says Stamps January Card Kit and Giveaway!!!

Hi everyone!!!

I finally found some time to play with the Simon Says Stamp January Card Kit. This was a fun kit to use...the colors are scrumptious... the papers very on trend... and the little goodies are delicious!!


First up is a card I made focuses on the Tickets and stamps.  LOVE the little button images and greeting in the stamp set. 


I know it might be hard to tell... 
but can you see the wood grain on the white cardstock? 


I also used some NEW Hero Arts Mid-Tone inks... Charcoal and Pale Tomato!

Next up is a fun card where I've used a Tim Holtz Alteration Die
off center.... it takes the pressure off from trying to be perfect.


I stamped the circle image twice and lifted it up 
to look like a little chalk board.  


Oh and the adorable hearts??? New die set for Simon!

Soooo... how about a GIVEAWAY??? Heidi is allowing me to give out a January Card kit.  I'll choose a lucky winner from comments posted to this post before 11:59pm CST, Sunday evening, December 30th.  I'll announce the Winner on Monday!  Good Luck!!!

You wouldn't believe the road that brought me here. I watch Kristina Werner's card video on YouTube like I'm addicted. And I very well might be. :) She talks about Jennifer McGuire often so I checked out her videos. She did this gorgeous card for you in 2008 & that led me here. :)

Long road, but well worth it. I LOVE what you've done with this month's kit. I'm thinking about trying my hand at card making, but don't want to purchase a lot of supplies if it's not something I'm really interested in. Which I won't know until I try it. A card kit would be perfect. So *fingers crossed* I hope I win. :)

Princess LadyBug said...

OMG!!! I just realized that I've seen some of your videos on the Hero Arts YouTube channel already. Small world. LOVE your work!

Maria V. said...

What a beautiful sentiment on the card with the tickets, I love it.
I have a hard time picking a sentiments for my cards that say what I want to say.
Love the card all together. The bottons are so cute.

Tricia said...
