Hello and Welcome!

These Simon Says Stamps kits are so much fun and I’m enjoying the creative process. So lets start with part 1 of April’s Simon Says Stamp kit.  I made thirteen cards and 6 ATCs cards with this kit!  There was so much color and the stamp set designed by Kristina Werner is fantastic.

Card 1: Butterflies are full of rich and vibrant colors so on this card I wanted everything to be bright and full of color. I used Zig clean color real brush for all the coloring.

Card 1

Card 2:  Love the red card stock that came in the kit, it really gave this card a great background pop of color.  I normally leave the inside blank but I love the message and size of the sentiments in this stamp set.

Card 3: Kristina Werner designed this stamp set and the handwritten sentiments were just so beautiful and versatile they make beautiful focal points on cards.

Card 3a

Card 4: This kit included a sheet of Gina K Design Therm-o-web Sparkling Silver Foil and this was my first time using the foil.  My laminator is big and bulky and I didn’t want to drag it out so I’ve seen this technique of using double sided adhesive tape to apply the foil and decided to give it a try. I really like the effect of the foil with all the colorful rainbow paper.

To use the tape with the foil; add a strip of double sided tape as wide as you would like to the card stock, place the foil’s pretty side up of top and rub in place. Carefully peel away the foil and it should stick to the adhesive.  I would suggest to do a test strip to make sure the adhesive is sticking well to the foil.  Some adhesives are not as strong and when peeling the foil the adhesive can come off the paper and cause damage to your paper.

Card 4

Card 5:  I liked the foil so much I used it again on this card. I like the way it highlights the beautiful paper as a thin border.

Card 6:  The orange card stock did not come in the kit, I had a piece on my stash and it looked great with the rainbow paper.  I have no idea what company it belongs to, my apologies!

Card 6a

For the inside I use the sentiment on the stamp set.  I find that once in a while is nice to just decorate the front of the card and put the sentiment on the inside.  Let the receiver take a moment before reading all the wonderful things you have to say.

Card 6b

Hope you got some inspiration and come back in a couple of days to see cards 6 to 13 on next. This kit is sold out but luckily Simon Says still sells many of the products included in the kit separately. I’ve included the links below to all the products I used.

Have a great week and keep nourishing your creative soul!

"Behind every great crafter...Is a huge pile of craft supplies" -JoAnn   Cheeky but true! I love craft supplies as much if not more than trashy paranormal romance novels. I felt it was time to get down to business and actually use all these craft supplies and make pretty things. Would I be successful? Who knows! But now one will be able to accuse me of not giving it all I got. Which is the reason I started this blog, to share my crafting adventures (or most likely mistakes) with the Internet.   Sad but hey I don't have much of a social life and my husband isn't very interested in hearing about crafts! He's much more interested on how the Patriots or Red Sox are doing than listening to me talk about stamps, cardstock and die cutting.   Paper crafting as you will see is my first crafting passion but as any decent crafter would tell you is impossible not to dabble on all other kind of crafting experiments, hence the name wondering mindfield. So look around and hopefully I will inspire you to try something new, make some "creative" mistakes and relax while creating something "pretty." Thank you for visiting and come back soon!
