Simon Says Stamp February 2019 Card Kit Inspiration

Hi, friends!
I'm so thrilled to share some cards with you before Valentine comes. I'm featuring Simon Says Stamp February 2019 Card Kit, today. I made six cards using the kit items as main supplies and here they are.

< Card 1 > 

I stamped a sentiment from Love Always Set with Versamark Onyx black ink, then I make it and stamped music notes from the same set over the panel using Distress Oxide Iced Spruce. Next, I cut a small heart window out of the panel using Layered Hearts Dies. I also diecut it using Postage Stamp Edge Dies

I colored the floral bouquet in a heart shape on another piece of card stock using my Copic markers, then I adhered the piece on the back of the front panel using foam tapes. In turn, I adhered my panel onto a card base made of Neenah Texture Red and finished it off by adding some sequins and hearts. 

< Card 2 >

I stamped and watercolored flowers from Love Always Set, then I adhered the piece on the back of the heart window panel which I made using Quilted Hearts Background Stamp, Doll Pink Ink, Wonky Rectangles Dies, and Ornate Love Dies.   

In order to add sentiments, I heat embossed a sentiment block from Love Always Set in gold on vellum paper using Gold Embossing Powder. I then cut the vellum piece using Nested Banner Dies

Finally, I adhered my panel onto a card base made of Neenah Texture Red, then I adhered Metallic Gole Jewels for embellishment. 

< Card 3 >

After I finished two cards, I wanted to use some pattern papers included in the kit. 
So I glued two layers of paper and cut out a window on the center using Wonky Rectangles Dies. I stamped messages on an Ivory card base with the guidance of rectangle window, then I foam mounted my panel onto the base. 

I then added a piece of Picket Fence and a blossom on the bottom of the window. 
To make the blossom, I first stamped the image from Love Always Set on a piece of watercolor paper using Abandoned Coral and Peeled Paint, then I brushed it with my water brush so it would look like a watercolored flower. After it was dry, I cut it freehand. For embellishment, I added a string of Ivory Twine and some Nuvo drops ( Autumn Red and Bubblegum Blush)

< Card 4 >

Here's another card where I used elegant pattern paper from the kit again. 

As soon as I saw this beautiful floral patterns, I thought it would go well with the elegant Wrought Iron Dies. So I made a shaker where I used vellum paper instead of clear acetate film so that it would look more natural and softer. 

To assemble the shaker, I laid a piece of vellum on my desk, then I adhered Wrought Iron Diecut piece first, and the other pieces next to the shaker window as shown in pictures. The right floral paper was cut again using Wavy Scallop Stitches Dies and then I adhered Schoolhouse Red cardstock on the back of the right wing so that the whole panel would complete A2 size. 

I turned my panel upside down, adhered foam tapes around the shaker, put sequins in it, covered it with a piece of cardstock, and then I finally put my shaker onto a card base. In turn, I added a sentiment block that was chosen from Beautiful Flowers, and finally, I added Autumn Red and White Nuvo Drops. 

< Card 5 > 

I had originally planned to make four cards using the kit, but when I finished four, I thought I wanted to make more with simple designs this time.  So here are Card 5 and 6. 

I stamped flowers from Love Always Set on the top and bottom part of the panel using Ground Espresso. I didn't do masking, I just stamped images right next to the others. 
I stamped a sentiment from Sketched Flowers set on the center, then I diecut my panel using Wonky Rectangles Dies.  Card base was made from Dark Chocolate Cardstock.

I wish I had added some jewels or sequins, but I forgot to do so and now I think this CAS version would look ok by itself :) 

< Card 6 > 

Here's the last card for today. I simply stamped flowers in a circle shape using  Distress Oxide Iced Spruce, then I colored the images lightly using my Copic Markers. The panel was cut using  Wonky Rectangles Dies

I foam mounted a happy birthday message from Sketched Flowers set, which was matted with gray cardstock on the center of the panel. Card base was made of Neenah Texture Gray. Finally, I adhered some blue sequins. 
The Copic numbers I used are BG75-BG72-BG70 for blue, R14-R12-R000 for coral, YG95-YG93-YG91-BG90 for leaves. 

That's it from me for today. I hope you enjoyed this.
Thank for stopping by and have a great Sunday!
