Simon Says Stamp - September 2022 Card Kit, Let's Celebrate




Hello Lovelies! Simon Says Stamp's Let's Celebrate Kit has all the bold vibrancy and playfulness of Summer, while celebrating Birthdays with sweet sentiments in cool fonts and withsimple line art. I paired with some coordinating Simon Says Stamp nested shape dies and made 4 Clean and Simple (CAS) cards for you today.


This a definitely a kit that is all about the patterned paper though, and you get beautiful designs from Vicki Boutin's Sweet Rush Paper Pad to play with and as you can see, they are the central focus of most of my cards here!



Those papers gave me so many simple card ideas that I was bummed that I only had time to make four!

DIE-CUTTING

  1. Use 1/2 of a sheet of 8.5 x 11 inch Simon Says Stamp Doll Pink cardstock to make a 4.25" x 5.5" folded Card Base. NOTE: The color does not matter much as you will not see it from the front, but could be a nice surprise on the inside for your recipient

  3. Stamp with the graphic "Happy Birthday" outline sentiment and "Let's Celebrate" sentiment using "Memento Tuxedo Black Ink"



COPIC COLORING

Each of the 14 letters/symbols has a designated color, starting with the 1st color below and ending with the last:

  3. Overlap some of the B34 onto the "P"

Keep going in that fashion until each letter/symbol is filled with color.



  1. Add some confetti dots using the Let's Celebrate Stamp Set.

  2. NOTE: I embellished my dots a little with a black Sharpie, as I smudged one! :-)
