Anything Goes

I have been receiving a Simon Says Stamp Card Kit for awhile now and I have loved each and every one of them!  I have not subscribed to any other card kit before but I have seen others and in my opinion SSS Card Kit is the best!  This week over at Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog  their challenge is Anything Goes so I thought I would give it a shot!  I am sharing one of my cards I made with the SSS April Card Kit.  I love the colors in this months kit and the stamp set includes 14 different stamps!  Fantastic!  I made a card base with a piece of white card stock that came in my kit and cut down one of the 6x6 papers just a tab bit smaller than my card base and then added some black stitching around that with my sewing machine.  The black tag came in the kit and I stamped the sentiment in White Daisy pigment ink from Close to My Heart and then rubbed some of the ink around the edges with a paper towel to make it look like a dusty chalkboard.  I then colored some Stampin Up vanilla seam binding with Heidi Swapp color shine in mustard!  That stuff is absolutely amazing!  Here is a look at my card!

Thanks for stopping by today and If you get a chance head on over to Simon Says Stamp  to give this challenge a shot and to check out their card kits!  They sell out quickly so a subscription is the way to go so you will not miss out on a kit!

    We have a gallery on the Simon Says Stamp Blog where we can add creations made using the kits, we would love to see this linked there too :-)

  2. This is super cute! Don't you just love that Daisy White ink? I like your tip about smearing it a bit to look like chalk. I just bought some chalkboard shapes and white ink so I'm going to experiment with that. TFS

  3. Just a beautiful card. I love those colours so much.

  4. Thanks ladies! Lorraine I will link this up to the other gallery as well! Lynn I love the Daisy Ink! I have a few inks that are always on my desk and that is one of them! Val the colors in Aprils Simon Says Stamp kit are fab!!
