Simon Says Stamp March 2013 Card Kit Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to Simon Says Stamp's March 2013 Card Kit Blog Hop!
I am honoured to be guest designing for the Simon Says Stamp Card Kit Team today and excitingly, I am first stop, so I urge you to keep hopping and see a whole host of amazing cards by some truly talented artists. I can't believe I am among them!! PLUS, you have LOTS of chances of winning awesome SSS gift certificates... read on to find out more!
We’re all ready for Spring. Are you? This month’s card kit, Friendship Flowers is the perfect
kit to get you in the mood for flowers blooming and Springtime weather.
Isn't it delicious...

I had a blast creating with the kit, and made 4 cards to share with you today. The lovely colors of papers in the kit really inspired me...
So, my first card... featuring some of the delicious Lawn Fawn paper, and some simple black on white stamping with the elegant stamps in the kit. The tag is THIS one by Hero Arts, and I added some white ribbon from a past kit and a Studio Calico sequin for a bit of texture.
thank you
Next, a very simple card made to draw attention to my favourite paper in the kit.  I added a drop of Star Dust Stickles to the centre of each flower for some sparkle. The little flowers were cut with THIS die.

And now, a pocket card, created with the little kraft bag in the kit.

Here you can see what's on the inside of the pocket... I covered the tag with some of the washi tape.
Hi Cutie2
And my final card is super simple. I thought it would be nice to showcase four of the sweet aqua papers in the kit. They are just so yummy. So I die cut the banners using Simon's Ribbon Banner die, then simply layered them up with foam adhesive.
