Time for the Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit, peeps! And I made SIX Valentine’s Day/ Love cards in one go.
By the way, I’ve decided I like Simon Says Stamp so much, I’ve become and affiliate partner and you can use THIS LINK to buy! Thank you!
Not gonna lie…this month I struggled with the card kit. The vintage colors felt a bit washed out to me, and I couldn’t quite feel the gold Gelato with clear embossing ink. While I love them together (see this post on embossing resist here) I just didn’t love them with the colors of paper in the set. But let’s take a look:
Here are those cards again:
Note that I fell back to one of my favorite techniques- Stamping with Acrylic Blocks. It’s so easy to get that watercolored background look!
This set of six cards took about 3 hours….much longer than I regularly need to get going. Ever feel that way- kind of in a slump? How do you snap out of it? (I actually went back to the inspiration sheets of previous card kits to get jumpstarted, as well as using that watercolor technique that I love.)
Which card is your favorite? Leave me a comment, I’d love to hear from you!
