Simon Says Stamp January Card Kit Inspiration- 9 Cards

In reality I made 10 cards but one card is in a previous post which you can see here.

So…here are my other 9 cards I made from the kit. I definitely have enough supplies to make more too. I’m just running out of time because if we are being real here, I am trying to get this post done before my team plays in the AFC Divisional game. Priorities.

All cards are A2 size.

This first card is for the Simon Says Stamp (SSS) Wednesday Challenge which is a Card + Envelope. I used Glossy Accents on the cute hearts and little beaks of the penguins. The “Snow Much” is embossed using white embossing powder. The envelope was stamped using white pigment ink.

For this card, I colored the snowmen using my Zig Clean Color markers and added texture and details using a white Gelly Roll pen. The large snowflake is a Darice Die and I added some glitter using a shimmer pen. I did add a very small amount of foam tape behind the sentiment. I cut the “hills” using a die (now retired) and adhered a small amount of foam tape behind them so I could tuck the snowmen in.

This one actually has no stamping except for the inside (not shown- I stamped the sentiment “Snow Much Thanks”). I cut the snowflake background with a stitched rectangle die. I again used the Darice snowflake die. I cut the sentiment using a circle die that fit the sentiment. Using the pom poms and thread from the kit, I made a string of them and adhered behind the sentiment that was popped up with foam tape.

This card was fun. I was actually just playing around with my left over little strips of paper. I also added some washi tape I had in my stash. I matted the sentiment with black to make it pop out from the busy background. To tie in that little bit of black I decided to cut the “hello” from black cardstock 5 times. I glued them all together and heat embossed using “fairy dust”. I wish you could see the glitter! It really pulls in the blue glitter washi tape.

I stamped the snowman onto the tag using pigment ink. After it was dry, I used my Prismacolor pencils to color the image. I really like that “chalkboard” kind of look. I added some ribbon from my stash and used the pom poms and string from the kit to embellish the top. I stamped and embossed snowflakes in mermaid embossing powder. I used Nuvo Glitter drops in Aquatic Mist to embellish the larger snowflakes.

The background of this card was stamped with white pigment ink. I also used the stencil from Gina K.’s Tiny Wreath builder with Bo Bunny Glitter paste (if you get this it dries very fast and you should definitely clean your stencil as soon as possible). I flagged the ends of some strips of paper and added a bow of twine I had in my stash.

This card has no stamping (I left the inside blank). I popped up the character paper from the red swirl paper using some fun foam to give some dimension. The blue ribbon was from my stash and the hearts I die cut from some red cardstock.

This is my only shaker card in the whole bunch! I do have an idea to make another one though. I think it turned out really cute. The “Winter Hello” was white heat embossed.

This is probably one of my favorites! For the background I used watercolor paper and taped off the area. I used Chipped Sapphire, Wilted Violet and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Inks. I made sure to blend them into each other. I added water splatters and perfect pearls to the background for a “snowy” look. I heat embossed the “snow much” in platinum. I fussy cut the penguin and Igloo images. The Igloo was colored using the same Oxide colors which was inspired by Amy R. of Prairie Paper & Ink. I wanted a little shine on my Igloo so I added some Glossy Accents. Unfortunately, you can’t really see it in the pictures.

All black stamped images use Black Detail Ink from Brutus Monroe.

Well, I hope you enjoyed my inspiration for this card kit. This is my first time posting a lot of cards/inspiration for a kit…so tell me what you think! Do you want more detail? Do the images speak for themselves and the detail is sufficient? If you have any questions on any of these cards just let me know and I will be more than glad to explain what I did or used.

I hope you have a crafty day!
