Hi all! Today I am part of the Simon Says Stamp August 2013 Card Kit Blog Hop. If you’re hopping along, you might have just come from Shari’s blog. :)

The August 2013 Card Kit is filled with fun stuff, including a few new Simon exclusives. My favorite parts of the kit are the Card-Exchanging stamp set and the Moroccan Stencil…

I chose to use both on my card, along with three Distress Ink colors: Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick, and Spun Sugar. I sponged the colors on using sponge daubers. I love the gradient from light pink to intense hot pink. :)

The sentiment was stamped on vellum, and for the life of me I couldn’t get a good photo! In real life, it’s much more easy to read the sentiment.

You can buy the August 2013 Card Kit here, or subscribe here. When you subscribe you’re guaranteed a kit and they are automatically shipped to your door each month. :)

Anyhow, here’s today’s MACM video, too!
