Hello there! I FINALLY got a chance to play with the SCRUMPTIOUS Simon Says Stamp April Card Kit! I’ve been so busy over the Easter holidays with quite a few deadlines to meet and my poor kit sat there on the perimeter of my desk calling me “use, me, use me”!! So, as soon as I got a minute I pulled it out and had a play. I have another couple of cards in progress (shame work has to go and spoil things – humph) but this is my first one so thought I’d get on with sharing it.
I LOVE the foiled kraft papers in this kit – I don’t think this gold trend is going anywhere soon! I used one of my new acquisitions – the Pretty Pink Posh Sitched Banner Duo die to die cut the centre panel. I stamped the candle from the fabulous stamp set included in the kit onto vellum (I LOVE this stamp set!!) and embossed them in gold and then created a little shaker window with some yummy sequins from my chum Lucy (see Lucy’s new Folksy shop for these sequin mixes – they are fantastic!). For my inky background panel I gathered my distress inks and blended and blended until I had a really intense orangey design. I splattered some Heidi Swapp gold spray and love how it kinda looks like bokeh? Or is it me, lol!! Finally I stamped and embossed the big sentiment from the stamp set on the bottom and adhered the lot to a top folding A2 card base.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
