It's hard to believe that last Monday was the last day of a 5 day stamping/scrap booking retreat with a wonderful group of 35 women! We had such a wonderful time - lots of stamping, scrap booking, talking, laughing, and eating.  Did I mention all of the laughing and talking!  Because there was a lot of that!!! But, I still managed to get a lot done. I finished all of the thank you cards I was making for my nieces wedding and showers. I'll share those another day after she has received them. After I got all of those done, I got out my Simon Says Stamp April Card Kit.  What an awesome kit - probably my fave so far! It's now sold out, but the May kit looks to be a good one too, so I can heartily recommend ordering one before it sells out too! The cards I'm sharing today were all made with that April kit, and I still have plenty of paper to make some more!

I also played around a lot with the SSS Perfect Bow die, and it is so fun! This bow was covered with glossy accents (a la Kathy Racoosin - thanks for the idea Kathy!!) before adding it to the card!
This one I splattered the background with some Dylusions mists, but the rest of the paper and the stamp is from the kit.  I also used some sequins from Neat and Tangled. Danielle has the best selection of sequins - my favorites are the matte finish ones.
Another bow with glossy accents and Neat and Tangled sequins - are you seeing a pattern here?
And the last one for today. This kit truly was versatile and easy to use!

I'll be back with more of the cards I made in a day or so. See you all then!!!


  1. Fabulous cards, Candy! Love the splattering and sequins!

  2. Love this kit and the cards I saw made with it! Did you hear I WON ONE?!?!?! I can't wait to get my paws on it.

  3. LOVE your Cards Candy, it was so Awesome to see them all in person!! xoxo
