1 kit 10 cards

Hi! Today I am back with 10 cards featuring the new June card kit by SimonSaysStamp. The kit is now available and it’s packed with gorgeous products. If you don’t want to get the whole kit but only some products then you will find individual links at the end of this post on everything I used.

Today I created 10 cards with a focus on the patterned papers and the die cut pieces. You can get lots of inspiration online on how to use the stamps so I thought it would be fun to create my cards making the most out of the rest of the products included! I haven’t even touched the designs of this lovely stamp set, I only used the sentiments. So imagine how many more cards you can easily create just by stamping and coloring.

I was laughing so much at Ginger and the way you were working around him (moving the box with him in it), that I wasn’t paying attention!!!!! Thank you — both — for the laughs!!!!!! I really appreciate watching you work with patterned paper. I’ve been playing with it a bit more these days thanks to your videos. You’ve made some beautiful cards with those pretty papers and ephemera. There’s NO way I could pick one favorite as I love them all. My favorite technique that you used, though, was the card that has a folded corner. WOW! I’m definitely going to try that!! Love the look. Thank you, Vicky!

  74. Oh I do love Ginger! He is just like my cat who sadly died three years ago. Cats do love boxes! He was lucky to find you and your family. My favourite thing about your cards is that you use patterned paper. I have a problem that I buy patterned paper all the time but never know how to use it. Normally I am so inspired by your cards I go and buy the paper you suggest so then I have more paper. I loved the summery Christmas cards you made and bought that paper too. The cards were all inspiring and they look so quick to make once you make a decision! Thank you also for the link to Pura Vida as I did see your bracelets and it was a bonus for you to link to them and give a coupon code, what a brilliant company and they give so much back to charity and have given work to so many people. Thank you Vicky.

  75. I really enjoy your creativity! I am inspired to look at my paper packs with new inspiration.
