Hello, all! Today I have some card inspiration using supplies from the June 2020 Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp! This card kit is packed with fun things to use when creating cards! I could make just one card–I just had to make three!
(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).
All three cards used Distress Oxide Inks in different ways. I used five colors of ink: Scattered Straw, Abandoned Coral, Festive Berries, Seedless Preserves, and a bit of Peeled Paint. These colors were inspired by the patterned papers included in the kit!
For my first card, I used the Butterfly Trails stencil to first so some ink blending. I used blender brushes to get a soft blend. Then I placed the stencil over the butterflies again and applied the Gina K Designs Iridescent Glitter Glitz Gel. To finish the card, I stamped the “Friend” sentiment from the Beautiful Butterflies stamp set included in the kit.
The second card started with stamping all of the butterflies from the kit stamp set on Arches cold pressed watercolor paper in black ink. Then I smooshed the Distress Oxides on a palette and painted with the inks. I did layers of colors and ended with stamping the “long distance hug” circle stamp for the greeting.
My third and final final is the most simple. This 7×5 card was created by first creating a soft watercolor background and then stamping the largest butterfly in black ink. For the greeting, I stamped the “Thinking of You” greeting from the Beautiful Butterflies stamp set in VersaMark Ink on black cardstock and applied gold embossing powder.
