Simon Says Stamp November Card Kit and something a bit different...

I just got back from a little vacation to find the Simon Says Stamp November Card Kit on my doorstep. Yay. And as it has been revealed in full today, I thought I'd do something a bit different. (I am hoping you might humour me…)
Take a look at the kit. Yum, right?
So… I have decided to ask you, my kind readers, if you have any requests. Do you have anything in particular you would like to see me attempt with this kit? Maybe there is a technique you would like to see me try... Maybe you've seen something in the kit that you are wondering how to use... Maybe you'd like me to combine the kit with something specific from Simon's latest release… whatever it is, leave me a comment and I will TRY to have a go this weekend during my crafty time.
So, if the kit is already heading your way, or you are thinking about getting it, give me a challenge. :) (I love a good challenge!!)
Have a great day!
Bye for now.

This kit is super cute! I always struggle with papers that already have a scene on them. I always want to add some die cuts or sentiments, but can't ever get it right. I challenge you to use the paper shown on the front (with the bunnies, trees, hills and snow) with some extra die cuts and sentiments :)

Lucy Abrams said...

Thanks Jacklyn-Jessa - GREAT request. I've got my sketchbook out already!!! :)

I'd like to see what you do wit the bottle of matte multi media and I'm wondering if there is a cool way to layer one of the tree images. (I won't see my kit for a couple of weeks yet)

P.S. Love your cards!

Lucy Abrams said...

Love the requests Kelly!!!

Anja Curvers said...

That kit is great love it. When I see all those lovely papers I always have a hard time to choose from them. I challenge you to pick one color either green or red and build your card in just that color. Love to see what you come up with. Always admire your cards.

Lucy Abrams said...

Thanks Anja - I will have a think about that one. :)

Beth said...

Ooh the kit looks lovely! I have a similar request to the first one, I struggle to use papers with a large design like the bunnies one (3rd on the left) I'd love to see a card using that :-) Whatever you make will be fab!

Lucy Abrams said...

I agree Beth, those papers are often hard to use. I will try. :)

Honestly, I believe you do so well on your own, you don't need my suggestions. I just trust that you'll nail whatever you do. Sorry, if that's not very helpful.

Michele said...

You're amazingly creative and I love everything you do so how about using some of the colors and papers in the kit that normally would NOT be considered Holiday or Xmas colors and making a Holiday card?

I would love to see a great use for the stamp that looks like various sizes of dots in the picture. Use of the patterned papers would be great as well.

Kris in Alaska said...

I have two requests because they are the hardest for me to do.
First is use the patterned papers for something other than a background! I can never figure out what else to do with patterned paper except as a background!
Second, use 3 or more of the patterned papers together! I have patterned paper from kits that are supposed to match but I can't figure out how to put them on a card and have it look good!
Fun ideas to try!
Thanks!

Hi Lucy, the kit looks amazing, and it's so fun to have bunnies on Christmas cards. Like most of the commentators before me, I too, struggle with the pattern papers, especially the scenic ones. So I look forward to seeing how you'd use the pattern paper on the front (snowy sky, bunnies in the field).

I'd really like to see a card made with that candycane striped stamp on the left of the set. I'm not really sure what to do with that stamp.

Louise said...

you always make cards so well. I do love a lot of layers though. So it would be nice to see a layered Christmas card x x

Mary-Anne V said...

I'd love to see you use the solid image Christmas trees in a different way than just simply inking it up in one colour.

Love the look of the new kit. One of the stamps that caught my eye is the swirls with the stars. i really like the look of this stamp but cannot think of way to use it on a card. I would love to see how you would use it.
