Simon Says Stamp Monthly Kit for the Month of October 2015

I was starting to get jealous when I saw other cards made from the heart stamp from October’s monthly kit from Simon Says Stamp.  I knew I had ordered it, but was unable to wait to finally be able to receive the stamp set.  Imagine my excitement when I opened my mailbox today. I just had to make a card.  2015-09-25 20.49.38-2

I found a cool side fun fold card design and had to use that also.  First I took Bazzill Marshmallow card stock and stamped the heart from the stamp set that comes in the Monthly kit called I See You with Versamark and heat embossed it in gold embossing powder.  I then water colored it using the Kuretake Gansai Tambi Water Color set in pink.  This water-color set also has this adorable pearlized color that I added to the top to add some dimension.  Once that dried I fussy cut it out.  For the fun fold card, I saw a tutorial on You Tube which I will link in the space below.  You take 4 in by 9 & 3/4 in card stock long wise at 1 & 1/2 inch and cut from 3 to 7 & 1/2 on your cutting tool.  Then turn the card and score at 3 to the cut line, 5 & 1/4 the whole way and then 7 & 1/2 from the score line to the bottom of the card.  Use the score lines to make folds 2015-09-25 20.51.03_wm as seen in this picture.  In the monthly kit also came this gorgeous gold hearts on pink paper.  I cut three pieces…. 2 & 1/8 in by 2 & 1/2 in, 1 & 3/8 in by 5 & 1/4 in and 2 in by 2 & 1/8.  I cut 3 pieces of grey card stock also….. 2 & 7/8 in by 3 & 7/8 in, 4 & 5/8 in by 3 & 7/8 in ( cut out 2 & 1/8 in by 2 & 1/2 in  square from the bottom left corner), 1 & 7/8 in by 2 & 1/8 in and 4 & 1/4 in by 5 & 1/2 in.  I added the 2 7/8 in by 3 7/8 in card stock to the front panel and noticed that panel was looking a little bare.  I used the heart stamps from this new set from Simon Says Stamp and also the hearts from Altenew’s Lace Up stamp set and stamped them randomly in Simon Says Stamp in Smoke Ink. Then on top of that I added the heart paper 1 3/8 in by 5 1/4 in to cover up the white card stock.  .  On the inside I added the gray card stock.  I then added the other pieces as they fit on to the card.  The sentiment is from The Ton’s stamp set Diamond Hearts.  I stamped that onto white card stock in Simon Says stamp in Smoke.I then adhered the heart to the front grey panel and added the sentiment with pop dots.   2015-09-25 20.53.35_wm.  Of course what is a card made by me without some bling.  I took my Wink of Stella and outlined every word and applied gold colored gems to the “i”‘s. I then attached the entire card to a 4 & 1/4 in by 5 & 1/2 in grey card stock. Thank you for putting up with me again for another card.  I had so much fun making this.
