[Simon Says Stamp] May 2018 Card Kit Inspiration

Hi, there!
Hope you are having a lovely weekend.
Today, I'm sharing six cards I made using the May 2018 Card Kit by Simon Says Stamp.

Although June kit was recently released, I hope some of you are still interested in the May Kit inspiration ~~ :)

So here are my cards.
I tried to use only kit items as much as I could and refrained from using other dies,  stamps or embellishment.

Card No. 1

I used two pieces of pattern paper Let Your Heart Decide in the kit, red one as a thin strip and white one as a background panel. I made an A2 card base from Ivory card stock in the kit then I adhered pattern papers on it.  I added Heart diecut  using Darice adhesive foam strips, and Let Your Heart Decide puffy stickers as shown.

I really love how the Heart diecut gives clean look.
As a minimal embellishment, I added some Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Card No.2

I prepared an A2 card base using Neenah white 110, then I adhered three pieces of kit papers in vertical direction. I simply adhered kit puffy stickers , giving them a little bit of dimension by using thin double sided foam tapes.
To make card 2 is so simple but I love the delightful mood that the mint colors and stickers gave to it.

Card No.3

Oh, this vertical stripes red paper is so famous, so I couldn't help but using it :)
I trimmed the red paper a little bit smaller than A2 size, then I adhered it onto a gray card base included in the kit.
I samped a sentiment from Take Heart Stamp set, and then foam mounted a Heart diecut below the sentiment.
Then I adhered Pinkfresh Studio's Epoxy Heart Stickers along the stripes. 

Card No.4

I chose a pink tone paper from the kit, then I cut it using Twisted Stitch Borders Dies. Next, I addedadded Heart diecut  using Darice adhesive foam strips, and Let Your Heart Decide puffy stickers. Sentiment is from Messages for Everyday Stamp set.

I foam mounted pink panel on an A2 sized  Ivory card stock in the kit, and then added a bow using May Arts Natural twine string. Finally I adhered the panel on a gray card base and then embellished it with Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins.

Card No.5

I prepared an A2 panel out of Ivory card stock in the kit,  then I stamped floral images from Everything Together Stamp set on the top left and bottom right part of the panel, using Simon Says Hybrid inks which were also included in the kit. I used Melon for large yellow blossoms and Spring Rain for leaves and small mint blossom, and I also used other Hybrid inks : Watermelon, Hollyhock, Twirling Tutu, and Willow
I cut the panel using Wonky Rectangle Dies, then I stamped sentiment in the same stamp set, using versafine onyx black ink .
I foam mounted the panel on the pre-scored gray card base in the kit. No embellishment.

Card No.6

I stamped flowers and hummingbird from Take Heart Stamp set on watercolor paper, then did watercoloring followed by diecutting using Twisted Stitch Borders Dies . I stamped sentiments above the border, then I foam mounted the panel on a pattern paper, and rounded  May Arts Ivory string. I adhered the panel on cardbase made from Audrey Blue card stock in the kit, finished off the card by adding Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins

Love the hummingbird♡

That's it for today.
