October Card Kit – SSS

Back for another card using the Simon Says Stamp October card kit! I loved the diversity of this stamp set so much!

One of many things I miss during this pandemic is getting together with friends. Thankfully, I do have a few friends that are quarantining just as well as we are and can meet up, but it takes out the fun whim of getting together with girlfriends for coffee. I made this card hoping that some day I can send it out and catch up with a few people who I haven’t had the chance to see this quarantine.

I started with using the new distress oxide ink in Crackling Campfire because honestly, its got to be the most perfect fall color. I picked out a brand new stencil from my stash from Paper Rose called “Stephanie” and brushed the distress ink on to it. I also used Pixie Spray for the first time and I was presently surprised! This was a very intricate stencil and it worked wonders keeping it in place. When the ink was blended to my liking, I stamped the coffee cups from the stamp set and then colored them with my Caran d’Ache pencils. I added some gold Nuvo drops, flicked the card from the bottom to level them out and then finished!

What’s your favorite thing about fall?
