Today I’m sharing three of the cards I made with the Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit. I had a lot of fun playing with it and will certainly be buying more kits in the future. I’m not really a pink girl, but I really love how these cards came out 🙂

The first card and my favorite of the three.
Standard A2 sized card (4-1/4″ x 5-1’2″) I used Mama Elephant’s Basic Die set to create the layers of the card. The bottom scalloped layer is die cut with vellum and layered on my card base, the smaller layer using the stitched rectangle die from the set and cut using paper from the kit. Included in the kit was a piece of sticky back canvas. I cut that into a square and then adhered a rub-on (or would that be rubbed on a rub-on?). The hearts and arrow are also die cut using the Mama Elephant Basic’s set and cut from the scraps of pattern paper that I used for the smaller stitched layer. Final touch was to add a little sparkle with some Star Dust Stickles. Yep I dragged out my stickles for this one.
Standard A2 sized card (4-1/4″ x 5-1’2″) For this card I die cut the water color paper using my new MFT Tag Builder Blueprints 3 die set and then stamped out the falling hearts using stamps included in the kit. For this I used the clear embossing powder to do a resist technique with the gold Gelatos. The little stitched heart also comes from the MFT set and just leaves a stitched heart impression on the water color paper. I added some twine and the jar paper clip and then adhered that to the background. For the background I added some of the lace I had left out from my banner and then layered that over a piece of the book paper that also came in the kit.
Last but not least:
A 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ shaker card. Well it’s more of a window card with a shaker insert. For this card I used a set of stitched circle die to die cut the pattern paper and then found the center of my card base and die cut the circle again. Using some Pretty Pink Posh Sequins and seed beads I created a shaker window on my card. For the sentiment I used the die cut piece I cut out with the circle die and then stamped out my sentiment using the kit stamps. I then added a few epoxy heart stickers to finish it off.
