SSS May Card Kit | Happily Ever After

Hello and happy Sunday! We are finally getting some spring weather here in Canada and we are taking full advantage of it! I'm off to a baby shower this afternoon and then the boat club for dinner to sit outside in the beautiful sun! What are you up to today? Do you have nice weather wherever you are?

Before I head out, I wanted to share a couple of cards I created with the new Simon Says Stamp May card kit called Happily Ever After. This kit is GORGEOUS, with beautiful pinks and greys and gold foil accents. I love how elegant and soft it is... perfect for brides and weddings and even moms and babies!

The first card I created uses the beautiful floral patterned paper from the kit as a background, with a vellum overlay on top to mute the colours down a bit so the sticker area is the focal part of the finished card.

Once I had the vellum adhered over the floral piece, I used a black gel pen to add the little flower centers on top of the vellum. I love how the flowers are muted under the vellum but the black center areas on them are dark black with a little bit of dimension.

Once the gel pen was dry, I added a little cluster of some of the stickers from the kit and also added some diecut hearts. I cut them from black and one of the gold stickers in the kit and I added a bit of shimmer to the black ones.

My second card uses one of the great striped papers that comes in the kit. I love the simple patterns on these papers that allows you to use them for card bases that you can build on.

For this card I used the cluster of dots stamp from the stamp set and stamped it on the patterned paper with Versamark ink. I then added gold embossing powder and heat embossed them so there was a bunch of shiny dots all over the card.


I also added a sentiment from the stamp set with black ink and added a couple of black diecut hearts to tie in the black strip of cardstock I added to the side. I love the black with the pinks and gold.
