Hello, all! I’m back today with some cards using the July 2020 Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp! And all three of my cards today do NOT require coloring! These cards work up fairly quickly!
(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).
My first card is all about the colored cardstock! I stamped the city scene from the Home Sweet Home stamp set on three colors of Hero Arts cardstock (Azalea, Papaya, Mist) at different heights on the cardstock, and then cut out the top line of each. I adhered them to a piece of Hero Arts Adriatic cardstock and white heat embossed a greeting from the stamp set above the city scene.
For my second card, I used strips of masking paper and ink blending to create a “sun rays” pattern for the background. I used various colors of Distress Oxide ink for the blending, and then kept the city scene bright white.
My final card started with the Soft Navy cardstock included in the kit. I masked off the very bottom and then ink blended with Picked Raspberry, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot Distress Oxide inks. This created the horizon line and nighttime sky for my scene. After the ink was dry, I stamped and white heat embossed the city scene, moon, stars, and a greeting.
