2 Ways: Simon's October 2019 Card Kit

Hello crafty friends! I don’t know about you, but the weather is certainly changing here on Cape Cod and beginning to feel a lot like Fall. Seems fitting though, since today is the reveal of the October 2019 Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp which is bursting with sophisticated Autumn designs and sweater-weather colors!

How I Made It
2 Ways: Simon's October 2019 Card Kit

The first card I created has a very modern, sophisticated feel to it. I really wanted the Bold Thanks die (cut from the Metallic 2 cardstock) to take center stage on this design, so I framed the greeting with gold embossed florals from the the Thankful Flowers stamp set. With that greeting, I stamped a coordinating sentiment from that same stamp set.

I keep the card super simple and only added a few sequins from the Simon Says Stamp Fresh Cut mix to bring a little color to the design.

The second card I made with the kit has a more muted, Autumn vibe to it. Featuring the Thankful Flowers stamp set, I stamped a floral stem in Gina K. Designs Skeleton Leaves ink so that I could do some no line watercolor. With my Daniel Smith watercolors, I colored the floral in rusty oranges, golden yellows, dusty greens and a bit of brown. These Fall colors create an elegant tone to the card. Around the flower, I used some dirty water to create a subtle creamy texture.

To the left of the floral, I stamped a pair of greetings with Oxide inks. I then mounted my watercolor panel onto a card base made with the Heritage pattern paper in the kit. Finally, I added a few Nuvo Drops around the floral as an accent.

I hope that these two cards have inspired you to create with the new October 2019 Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp! Stay tuned for more crafty projects coming up this week!

    Both cards are beautiful Nina. I especially like the simplicity of the second one. Definitely fall inspired cards.

    Stunning designs both of them, the thanks in metallic really looks fabulous, so crisp. Do love the flower on the second, my kind of card to send. Thank you for inspiring us x
