SSS~July Card Kit projects & giveaway

Hi there! Today I have a few more Simon Says Stamp July Card kit projects to share with you. My first card uses a piece of gorgeous pattern paper that comes in the card kit. I love this pattern and wish I had an entire pad of paper just in this pattern. It’s neutral. It’s geometric. It’s awesome.SSS~July Card Kit & Big Hello dieI used the Big Hello die and popped it up above my card base,which I used my ink blender to blend some bright, happy colors to show through.
SSS~July Card Kit & Big Hello dieHere’s some more yummy pattern papers that come in the July Card kit. I used the Gift Card Envelope die to create my little envelope.

SSS~Sending Happy Thoughts & Seasonal SimonI combined it with the Seasonal Simon stamp set, and paper pieced Simon to make him look like he was holding the envelope in his mouth. Did I ever tell you about the time that I got to pet the actual real life Simon from Simon Says Stamp? When I was in Columbus, Ohio for the Create event, Simon made an appearance, and he was too adorable for words…such a sweet dog.
SSS~Sending Happy Thoughts & Seasonal SimonThe July card kit had a few products in it that I already happen to own, and I hate to see them sit here being unused.

  66. I love all your cards from the SSS kit but the Big Hello is my favorite. Thanks for a chance to win some “red”.

  67. I think the multi-colored Hello card really suits your personality–cheerful exuberance and lots of color. Cute cute cute. A hint of how old I am is the fact that I learned to type on manual. Yikes. That makes me retro. Glad those days are gone and we have our super little computers. How profoundly our lives change with each passing decade, and as soon as something is gone, we sentimentalize it. Sweet card and envelope; love the puffy heart.

  68. That rainbow hello pairs perfectly with that cool geometric paper and those sweet little flags are the perfect accent! Puffy stickers? No way! Awesome! Flashback to my 80s childhood! LOL!

  69. I love that hello die every time I see it! I need it. LOL Those puffy stickers are adorable and so cool that there is matching paper too. Your Simon is so cute, with his little hat and holding that envelope.

  70. Laura, you are the best! I just adore you cards and your videos always make me laugh. Thanks for all the time you spend creating. I am always inspired. Hopefully there will be another create event, I would love to meet some of my favorite bloggers.

  71. Love your cards & always love visiting your blog! Thanks for the chance to win the red crafting goodies 🙂

  72. Great cards from the July card kits. Love the look of the colours behind the large hello stamp.

  73. Your projects are always so inspiring and simply fabulous, love them. Thanks so much for this sweet giveaway!!!

  74. Your red goodies would look wonderful in my stash as I don’t any of them. Thanks for all the inspiration you provide.

  75. Love everything about the hello card, the happy color, the geometric pattern, the large die cut 🙂
    By the way, for the inside pieces, did you layer them? they look like puffy stickers!

  76. What a great card – love the die and all your fabulous colors. Thanks so much for the chance to win – love red!!

  77. Love your cards! I’ve not tried the SSS ink yet, and would love the chance! Thanks for the giveaway.
