It’s kit unboxing day and I’m sharing five fun cards using the brand new May 2023 card kit from Simon Says Stamp, Best Year Yet. The kit is a packed, happy birthday theme and we all know birthday cards tend to be ones we actually need to create!
Here is my unboxing video and card makes. Enjoy!
Let’s take a look at photos of each card!
I had to start out with a simple design because the Pastel Color Blend panels are SO gorgeous! It’s like the softest blend I’ve never done!
Next up, my favorite way to NOT color a stamped image!
If you don’t love to color stamped images, this technique is SO fun to do, and it looks great!
Next up, a fun way to take any stamp and make a pattern:
As you saw in the video, the dotted Glitter Pen lines was an afterthought, but I’m so glad I did it! The photos don’t show how shiny they are, but they are!
The part that I love? The color matched spatter!
And last but not least, a simple birthday design.
SO simple, right? I did add a layer of Silver Glitter Cardstock that is not part of the kit, but… it’s a simple way to add some shiny goodness.
I kept my coloring simple but love the little shiny silver pen for the details.
