2 Ways to Use the Kind Flowers Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp | Nina-Marie Design

Happy Saturday everyone! I am popping in to share two ideas for creating with the new Simon Says Stamp Kind Flowers card kit! I really had fun working with this latest kit, and I hope you enjoy the cards I made!

The card with the gold embossed floral background was the first card I made; I started by stamping the floral images from the Kind Flowers set onto Dark Chocolate cardstock; after heat setting each one with gold embossing powder, I colored each image with a single Prismacolor colored pencil.

After that, I used my We R Memory Keepers Stitch Happy sewing machine to create stitching holes around the edges of my cardstock. I did not use any thread in the machine, as I simply wanted a wonky set of holes. With a darning needle and a bit of thick, beige thread, I then handstitched into the holes from my sewing machine. You’ll also notice that I added a special detail to the sewing by wrapping the thread around each corner. This added a bit of interest to the sewing!

My sentiment is also stamped with the Kind Flowers stamp set. There are some gorgeous blush pink tones in the kit, and I used this as inspiration for the embossing powder color on the sentiment. I also stamped an additional supporting sentiment onto a strip of green cardstock.

The last detail I added to this card was a couple of the Darice Gold Leaves sequins, which I tied together using a bit of leftover beige thread.

The second card I made with the kit features a few of the Heart of the Home patterned papers, as well as one of the stickers from the Heart of the Home sticker sheet. The Heart of the Home collection from Pebbles is full of earthy colors and beautiful prints!

The cute letter blocks that form the main sentiment on the card are actually from one of the pattern paper sheets; there is a sheet that is made up of blocks of letters from the alphabet. I took that sheet and trimmed some of the blocks out to build my own custom greeting. I then paired that greeting with a few smaller ones from the Kind Flowers stamp set. To finish off the edges of each block, I inked them with Barely Beige ink.

I cut down some patterned paper for behind the greeting, and also tied a bit of hemp cord around the bottom portion of the card. For some embellishing, I grabbed the cute, pink heart from the Heart of the Home sticker sheet and popped that up between the “K” and “S” letters of the greeting.
