Simon Says Stamp Card Kit January 2019 Quickie

Simon Says Stamp Card Kit January 2019 Quickie

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by. Daniel here with a quick card from the Simon Says Stamp Card Kit for January 2019. I unboxed this kit live on my YouTube channel and immediately wanted to make a card. So I did it live and unplanned on my channel. You can watch the video below.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Cut the white cardstock from the kit in half to form two 8.5 x 5.25 pieces.

  2. Score one of the pieces at 4.25 inches and tape it down to your glass mat with some masking tape at the score line.

  3. Cut a wavy line out of some plain copy paper to make a hills mask for ink blending

  4. Using an ink blending tool (I use the Picket Fence Life Changing Brushes), brush on some Tumbled Glass over your hill stencil about halfway up the front of the card base.

  5. Repeat this step using Salty Ocean Distress Ink about two inches lower.

  6. Stamp the large penguin on to the panel using an acrylic block and Midnight Ink from Catherine Pooler. This ink gives a solid impression on your first pass. I can’t say enough good things about it.

  7. Stamp off the remaining in onto some plain copy paper and cut it out for a mask with some fussy cutting scissors.

  8. Place your mask over your large stamped penguin image and stamp the small penguin image twice - once on each side of the large penguin using the same Midnight Ink.

  9. Add a sentiment from the stamp set using Midnight Ink at the bottom right of the card.

  10. Stamp a three of the tiny plus signs around the sentiment and voila!!! you are finished.
