Picnic Parade Mini Blog Hop

Before we reveal our September card kit on Friday, we wanted to give you one more fun look at our super cute August 2020 card kit, Picnic Parade with further inspiration in the form of this mini blog hop!

Our August kit includes not one but TWO brand new Simon Says Stamp exclusive stamp sets: 6×8” Hello Sunshine and the 3×4” cutie-patootie, Summertime BBQ! They coordinate perfectly with the oh-so-adorable Bar-B-Cute Doodlebug 6×6 papers and coordinating mini icon stickers!

Two NEW colors of super-fun slimline envelopes are included! Can you take ANTy more cuteness?! We’ve also included the kit’s namesake, Picnic Parade sprinkles to add the perfect ANTcent. ;)

Our August 2020 card kit is perfect for creating a plethora of cards, such as Birthday, Thinking of You, summertime love, and MORE!

I created this brand new card by stamping the sun rays three times onto white cardstock using Simon Says Stamp inks in Duckling, Orange Slush, and Teeny Bikini. I trimmed the piece to fit the image. I stamped the hearts in the same colors and trimmed them leaving a white border. 

Next, I assembled the stamped images onto a panel of white cardstock backed with orange and mounted the panel onto a Simon Says Stamp Slimline notecard. To finish it off, I  stamped my greeting using black ink just under the panel to the right.
