6 Cards 1 Kit - Simon Says Stamp August 2017 Card Kit

It's already time for another 6 Cards 1 Kit video!  This month's Simon Says Stamp card kit featured Doodlebug Designs, which is one of my all time favorite companies.  I can never get enough of all of their bright colors and adorable images - I want to collect everything :-)  For the SSS card kit, Doodlebug released a custom set of papers and an adorable pack of enamel shapes that were inspired by their Fairy Tales collection.  This collection features rainbows, unicorns, and birthday themes.  Who wouldn't have fun with that?!

For my first card I wanted to use the JilliBean Soup tag and shaker element to create a card.  I used my own inks and both the heart and line stamps to create a colorful pattern on the tag.  I already had Doodlebug sequins mixes in my stash to fill up the shaker, then finished it with a sentiment strip and a bit of bakers twine.

My second card was inspired by all the adorable petite patterns from the papers.  I picked out an assortment and cut tiny flags using some MFT dies.  I also used my MFT alphabet dies to cut out the letters.  A few holes and some twine for stringing helped me create the banners, and a little enamel cupcake sticker finished it off :-)

My third card was very simple.  I used the fun banner paper to cut three simple rectangles, putting them on stitched card stock for framing.  The center circle was stamped and colored with Copic markers, then embellished with more enamel stickers from the pack.  So easy but so cute!

I really wanted to use this tiny "crowd" of animals for one of my cards, and it was only natural to give some of them balloons!  I cut them with an MFT balloon die and attached "strings" of twine.  The main balloon was made with another JilliBean Soup shaker element and filled with an assortment of black/white/clear sequins.  I don't know about you, but I'd like these little guys to show up to MY next birthday!

The fifth card features a plaid paper I made by using the solid stripe stamp from the kit and pretty inks in green, blue, pink, and purple.  I won't lie to you - this took some time and three tries before I got it right, but the end result is fabulous!  I colored the tag with more of the same ink, then created a happy sky with more enamel stickers.  Their sweet little smiles really make this card adorable, don't you think?

For my sixth and final card I decided to make a simpler custom paper by repeatedly stamping the Happy Birthday strip over a piece of orange patterned paper.  Using my Misti stamping tool made this task extremely quick and easy.  If you don't have a stamping tool yet, I would seriously consider getting one.  Several companies offer them at different price points, so hopefully you can find one that fits your needs and budget.  I created the colorful heart with stamping and more Copic coloring, adding Glossy Accents over top to give it the look of an enameled piece.  I used the last stickers from my pack to fill each little window with yummy treats.  Yay!
