“Seeing Stars” Simon Says Stamp Card Kit Reveal and Inspiration

August 2016 Card Kit 600x487

Are you seeing stars?? We sure are!! This months kit is just that, “Seeing Stars”. The August 2016 card kit has an amazing stamp set Seeing Stars designed by Kristina Werner that can be used in a variety of ways. We’ve included 6×6″ sheets of the  Tim Holtz Motif resists papers in white and Kraft along with two mini ink pads Chipped Sapphire and Festive Berries. We created a couple exclusive items for this kit, the Vented Star and Fireworks stencil. The printed papers this month come from  Pebbles; America the Beautiful. Also included in this kit are Simon Says Stamp cardstocks Lipstick Red, Soft Navy and two sheets of 120 lb white.

I’ve created a card using the printed papers from the kit along with the Vented Star and a message strip. These colors are great for masculine cards with inspirational messages.

Wanda Guess created a masterpiece with a colorful watercolor background for a celestial look. She white embossed her images first and allowed the paint to resist around the watercolor paints.


Debby Hughes also created a watercolor resist by using the Chipped Sapphire ink in a circular shape over her stamped images.

Lana also created a celestial background by blending various colors of Distress ink. She dripped water onto her panel and blotted up the ink to create additional spots.

    => they’re MUST-HAVES for sure!!!
    THANK YOU for sharing such a wonderful introduction :)

  3. I really love the vented star. The stamp collection is equally as great. What the Ladies have done to show them off is very nice. Thank you.

  4. Very nice Kit! I have a few items very similar, or exact in the case of Tim Holtz. But the vented star is a winner and the papers are beautiful as always. So I’ll be watching for the mailman!

  5. Great set and I believe will be very versatile. Not so cutesy and can be dressed up for sophistication and elegance or made into something fun and bright. Thank you Kristina (for the stamp design) and the guest designers for your great card ideas.

  7. So in love with this month’s release!! All of the stars have me smiling from ear to ear! I am saving up to be able to get Seeing Stars because I love it!! I have a few of the other sets already and can’t wait to add that to my stash!!! Thanks for the awesomeness!
