1 Stencil, 2 Cards! (Simon’s August 2021 Card Kit)

NOTE: This post is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp! Thanks, Simon!

Happy Monday, all! Have you all seen the amazing cards in the August 2021 Card Kit Gallery? So many cute frog cards made using the August 2021 Card Kit! Because so many people have used the frog stamp set, I thought I’d challenge myself to use the Build a Frog Pond stencil in the kit. So here we go!


(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).

I first used the floral shapes on the stencil to create a colorful overlapping abstract pattern. I used Simon inks (Doll Pink, Hot Mama, Sunshine, Jellybean, and High Dive) and the fingertip blender brushes. Then I added a layer of gold by blending VersaMark and applying gold embossing powder.

A gold embossed greeting on Doll Pink cardstock finished the card.

For my second card, I used the same Simon inks to create a stacked cloud scene with rainbow colors. Super easy but it packs a punch!
