Simon Says Stamp – April 2022 Card Kit – Life Is a Party

Hello, Friends!

The monthly Simon says Stamp card kit is here! The April 2022 Card Kit is party-themed! All celebratory occasions!

I used the stamp and die sets to create my card and used the patterned paper to make it festive. My Balloon Trio is die-cut and then ink-blended with Distress Oxide Inks. This month’s kit comes with the new distress color – Saltwater Taffy Distress Oxide Ink Pad. I used additional colors to ink-blend the balloons to give them depth and shading.

After ink-blending, I in-lay the little white pieces and held them together on the backside using foam adhesive. Before removing the backing to adhere them down, I stamped balloon strings from the 6″ x 8″ Life Is a Party stamp set over a piece of patterned paper from the American Crafts Damask Love paper included in the kit.

I attached my balloons, layering and positioning them over the stamped balloon strings. The sentiment from the Life Is a Party set as well and is stamped over black cardstock and embossed in white. To give it more interest, I fussy-cut around the letters. I’m quite fussy (ha!) and particular about the sentiments looking this way so I take my time cutting it out to remove the extra black cardstock around the sentiment.

To finish my card, I matted my card over a second piece of patterned paper from the American Crafts Damask Love paper pad. This card was quicker for me to make because the patterned paper did most of the work! I hope you like it! Thanks so much for stopping by today!

  1. Hola, Caly! 😀 Those are some pretty balloons! I love balloons! 🏵 I hope you had a great week. I’ve been busy with my mom. She hasn’t felt well (bad knee pain). I hope you had a great Spring Break. 💜

      1. Thanks, Caly. She’s a little nervous because she had both knees replaced 10 years ago and the new knees only last 10 years which means surgery to fix them again. She’s not too thrilled, but we’ll see. X-Rays are tomorrow. She’s just in so much pain. Say a prayer for her, please. 🙏 I hope you guys have warmed up. We’ll be in the 80’s all week. We get hot fast. Cotulla, Tx. already hit 96*F…..last month! Now we hope that Summer won’t be an inferno. We’re never happy. haha
