Simon Says Stamp June Monthly Card Kit--Take 3!

Hello friends!  
I am sharing my 3rd card created from Simon Says Stamp June Card Kit .

 I normally like to use stamping techniques to create cards. But with this set, the pattern paper prompted me to do MORE with the stamps.

I do love tearing up paper and showing the white part. So I first created the striped background with the torn paper. I then white embossed the flowers with one of the darker paper.

 I made the die cut with "dream" sentiment and I think the black card stock is perfect for it. I love how this turned out.
Thanks for stopping by!

Floral Butterfly Die

Hello friends!
Have you ever set sight on a craft item and you knew you "have to" have it?

 Floral Butterfly (Penny Black) did just that for me.
This die speaks volumes itself. I can think of many ways of using it.

Card Set
I was feeling inspired....so I set out to make a set of cards. First, I created a super colorful background with assorted Spray/ColorShine on Watercolor paper.
Then I made the die cut and add a few simple elements (such as pattern paper, splatter and sequins).

Killing Me Softly with Distress Crayons

  Hello friends!
I am popping in to share a soft and delicate card. As you may have noticed that I am enjoying the Simon Says Stamp June Card Kit. However, you might think that most cards made from the kit may start to look very similar...
s
Well, I do like to challenge myself to do something a little differently from my previous 2 cards (see here). I do not enjoy making the same kinds of cards over and over. Who does, right?
I opted to take a softer approach with Distress Crayons. However, the crayons are known for their bold and bright colors.  This time, I want you to see that they also have the gentler and kinder side.

 You may have seen this already... white-embossing on one side of vellum and coloring on the other side.  The small flowers form the stamp set from "Look for the Miracles" are perfect for this. At first, when you color the backside of the vellum with Distress Crayons, it would look AWFUL (do not panic)! But once you turn it over...... it's a "MIRACLE"!!

See? Distress Crayons do have a softer side!! 
 Thank you for stopping by!
