Quick and Easy Cards Using Simon Says Stamp’s February 2021 Card Kit

Hi friends. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Here are a few more cards to share some love. Both of these cards use minimal supplies and feature the Simon Says Stamp February 2021 Card Kit Love You Beary Much.

The Kit includes:

For the first card, I started by cutting a piece of Simon Says Stamp 100# Schoolhouse Red Cardstock to 7 x 10″ and scored at 5″ to make a card base. I diecut the background from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock using the Honey Bee Plaid A7 Cover Plate Top Die and cut a piece of pattern paper from Simple Stories Sweet Talk 6 x 8 paper pad  to 5 x 7″ and adhered them to the card base. I also cut a piece of Simon Says Stamp Vellum to 4-1/4 x 6-1/4″ and adhered it to the card.

In the paper pack there was one page which had this rainbow and sentiment on it, so I fussycut out all the images separately and adhered them to the card. It also had a pink heard under the rainbow but I wanted more contrast so I fussycut a red heart from another pattern paper in the pad and adhered it with some 3M Foam Tape.

I finished it off by adding Nuvo Drops in Carnation Pink, Autumn Red and Gloss White and some Ranger Glossy Accents to the heart.

On the inside of the card I kept it simple and left it blank, just adding a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ cut to 4-3/4 x 6-3/4″ and strip of the same pattern paper.

For the second card, I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″and scored at 4-1/4″ to make a card base. Then cut a piece of Simple Stories Sweet Talk 6 x 8 paper pad to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″, adhered it to the card base and cut another piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 4 x 5-1/4″

I stamped a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Love You Beary Much Exclusive 6 x 8 stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto the top panel, added some post-it tape over the sentiment to create a mask and stamped the conversation hearts from Simon Says Stamp Love You Beary Much Exclusive 6 x 8 stamp set.

I colored all the hearts with Copic Markers. I used RV10, RV11 & RV21; B00 & B02; V22, V25 &V28; and Y11 & Y15 and adhered the panel to the card with 3M Foam Tape for added dimension.

To finish it off, I added some Red Metallic Love From Lizi Pin Stripe Peel-offs around the sentiment.

On the inside of the card I kept it simple, left it blank added a strip of the same red pattern paper to the bottom edge.

Peekaboo Window Slimline Card Using Simon Says Stamp’s February 2021 Card Kit

Hi friends. Here’s a fun interactive peekaboo window with hidden messages for Valentine’s, Galentine’s or any day you want to share love. I pulled out an oldy but goody interactive die from Lawn Fawn and combined it with the Simon Says Stamp February 2021 Card Kit Love You Beary Much. I love the Tumbling Hearts 6 x 6 stencil included in this kit! It is so easy to make a pretty background with it. I will show you how I was able to use it on a slimline card.

The Kit includes:

I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 7 x 8-1/2″ and scored a at 3-1/2″ to create the card base and another piece to 3-1/4 x 7-1/4″. I used Catherine Pooler Designs It’s a Girl Ink to create a gradient background then used the Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Tumbling Hearts 6 x 6 stencil and Catherine Pooler Designs Rouge Ink to create gradient of hearts over the pink.

Next, I used the Lawn Fawn Lift the Flap Dies to cut out three windows on the top panel. I backed the top and bottom windows with a piece of paper from the Simple Stories Sweet Talk 6 x 8 paper pad and stamped a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Love You Beary Much Exclusive 6 x 8 stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to place behind the center window. And adhered that panel to the card base.

I stamped all of the images from the Simon Says Stamp Sweet Truffles Exclusive 3 x 4 stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and some conversation hearts from the Simon Says Stamp Love You Beary Much Exclusive 6 x 8 stamp set.

I colored all the images with Copic Markers. I used E23, E25, E29 & E49 (for chocolate truffles); R81, R83 & R85 (for the truffle wrappers, sprinkles and decor, hearts); R05, R17 & R29 (for hearts); BG000, BG01 & BG02 (for sprinkles and decor, hearts). I fussycut all the images and adhered some to the inside of the card and some on the outside.

To finish it off, I added some White Gloss Nuvo Drops.

On the inside of the card I kept it simple, and just stamped the sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Love You Beary Much Exclusive 6 x 8 stamp set with Catherine Pooler Designs Rouge Ink onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″, fussycut and adhered it to the card. I also added nother truffle image.

Sparkly Pink Bear Card Using Simon Says Stamp’s February 2021 Card Kit

Hi friends. Need a fairly quick card for Valentine’s or Galentine’s Day? This cute sparkly pink bear card came together quickly using the Simon Says Stamp February 2021 Card Kit Love You Beary Much.

The Kit includes:

For this card, I started by using the Simon Says Stamp A2 Black Notecards included in the kit for the card base and cut another one down to 4 x 5-1/4″. Next I used the Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Tumbling Hearts 6 x 6 stencil and applied Thermoweb Rina K Poppin Pink Mini Glitz to the card panel. When I saw this sparkly pink glitter paste I immediately wanted to see what it would look like on the black cardstock. It looks pretty cool. Next time I will add a little bit more so its all completely evenly covered.

I set that aside to dry and stamped the little bear from the Simon Says Stamp Love You Beary Much Exclusive 6 x 8 stamp set onto Neenah 110lb Solar White Cardstock  8.5 x 11 with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I also stamped his paws a second time (you will see why later), and stamped the heart he is holding onto some pink scrap pattern paper from my stash and a sentiment onto that heart.

I colored the image with Copic Markers. I also colored the pattern paper heart to give it some dimension and make it pop a bit more. I used R81, R83 and R85 (ears and nose); R20 (cheeks); C1, C3, C5, & C7 (bear); adn R27 and R83 (pattern heart). I fussycut the images out and adhered them together using 3M Foam Tape behind the heart and paws.

I diecut a 2-5/8″ circle from Neenah 110lb Solar White Cardstock  8.5 x 11 with SU! Layering Circle Dies and a 3″ circle from the Simple Stories Sweet Talk 6 x 8 paper pad. I adhered those together, the bear to the circles and then to the card.

To finish it off, I added some of the hot pink sequins from Lovestruck Sequins and embellishment mixes.

On the inside of the card I kept it simple, and just stamped the sentiment heart from Simon Says Stamp Love You Beary Much Exclusive 6 x 8 stamp set with Stampin Up! Magenta Madness Ink.
