Simon Says Stamp - SEPTEMBER 2023 Card Kit, BEE HAPPY




Hello Lovelies! Simon Says Stamp's Bee Happy Card Kit is celebrating the last weeks of summer with lots of sunflowers and the cutest bees.


I only had time to make two cards so far and didn't get a chance to check out all the pretty patterned paper and the die-cuts and the glossy black paper and the sanding disk and... LOL



Here's a closer look at ALL the kit goodies. Click image below to shop for the kit and the following link to see the full supply list.



Here's the full list of all the crafty goodies that the kit contains:

  • 1 NEW and Exclusive Simon Says Stamp Bee Happy 6x8 inch clear stamp set

  • 1 NEW and Exclusive Simon Says Stamp Criss Cross Floral embossing folder

  • 1 NEW and Exclusive Simon Says Stamp Retro Flowers set of four 6x6 inch layering stencils

  • 1 NEW and Exclusive Simon Says Stamp CZ Design Scripty Hello die set

  • 6 unique double-sided 6x6 inch patterned paper sheets from the Paper Rose Bee Happy collection

The items below are the ones that I used most from the kit so far; they are also available separately if you are interested in particular one!



The stencils and stamp set gave me the perfect opportunity to use my new ink cubes, so today's color palette pretty much comes from these compact and affordable sets. If you are traveling and can't leave your crafting behind, they tuck nicely into your luggage for crafting on the go.
