October 2014 Card Kit REVEAL!


Hi everyone! Today is the 14th, which means it’s time to reveal the newest Simon Says Stamp card kit, “Friendship Has Its Perks!” The October 2014 card kit is super fun with coffee themed sentiments and images that are sure to “perk” you up!

The October 2014 card kit includes: “What’s Brewing” stamp set and “Coffee Cup” die from Simon Says Stamp, Khaki Ink Pad from Simon Says Stamp, BasicGrey 6×6 patterned papers from the “Grand Bazaar” collection, Prima “Coffee Break” wood icons, Mocha colored sequins, and an assortment of coordinating cardstock.

You can pick up the October card kit here for just $24.95 + shipping. Or if you’d like to receive this kit and future kits for only $19.95 + shipping per month, you can subscribe here. When you subscribe you will receive kits delivered to your door automatically!

To celebrate the card kit reveal, I have a card to share that uses the fun new Coffee Cup die and one of the great new sentiments from the What’s Brewing stamp set. I wanted the card to have a retro coffee diner feel to it, and I really think the Grand Bazaar pattern papers helped to achieve that!


I love the background patterned paper that I used on this card, but it was really overpowering to the focal point of the card. To mute it down a bit and make it work on the card, I simply covered it with a piece of vellum. I love that you still get the great pattern and color, but it doesn’t compete with the stamped panel on top.

Want to see more cards created with the October card kit? Well, we have a special blog hop planned tomorrow here on the Simon blog at 8am EST to share a whole “latte” inspiration! We’ll have lots of prizes to giveaway too! See you tomorrow!

  1. Gorgeous card Stephanie :-) Love the vellum overlay too, great ides to mute the colours :-)

    Lols x x x

  2. Im gonna be stalking the mailman…he’s probably thinking I’m flirting…. LOL. He’s too old…I’m too old and I’m too tired……but not too tired to stamp and make cards. Was this too much information?

  3. Love this kit, but the ink pad is making me hesitate purchasing it. I wish there was an option to buy the kit without one. I already own most of the SSS ink pads. I don’t want to wind up with multiples.

  4. Another great kit! As a tea drinker though, I do wish there was a tea/hot cocoa sentiment…but I’ll just have to improvise! Love getting inkpads in the kits…it always feels like an extra special bonus.

  5. Oh my gosh! I love it! A fun die, great stamp set and a stamp pad! Awesome! I’ve totally got to sign up. I’ve quit going to SU card class so I can join the kits. =D

  6. I was really hoping for a Halloween themed card kit this year however I adore the bright and vibrant colors. Very nice card Stephanie, love it!

  7. I hate coffee, but I am loving this kit! I am thrilled there is a stamp pad and especially a die being in the kit. Maybe you could mail mine earlier?!

  8. Gracias…me encanta todo lo que haces….te lo he comentado más veces…..
    Me gustaría saber donde se pueden comprar estos productos……gracias de nuevo y bsos

  9. I perfect kit for me, since I always have a cup of something close by. I’m looking forward to seeing more example of how it’s used.
