Fun With Simon Says Stamp Products!

Hey everyone!

I've been playing with some fun (new to me) products from Simon Says Stamp! I've got three cards to share. The first two use the April Card Kit, which I was lucky enough to win from a random drawing on Kathy Racoosin's blog! Thank you, Kathy! :) 

All the papers are from the kit - LOVE! And the little roses are from their, Best Mom Ever clear stamp set. The sentiment is from their stamp set called, Happy Everyday which comes in the kit.

This next one is stamped with the same, Happy Everyday set. 

The stripes and tiny triangles are stamps. Thought this would make a good masculine b-day card.

And this last card is stamped using the SSS, Best Mom Ever set. Love these roses so much!!

 I gave this one to a mom friend of mine for Mother's Day.

Before I go, I wanted to say how sad I am for all those living in Oklahoma - so much devastation, sorrow and suffering! Did you know that it is so easy to donate? All you have to do is text the words, "Redcross" to the number, 90999 and it will automatically donate $10.00 to the victims of Oklahoma. The $10.00 will be added to your cell phone bill - doesn't get any easier! Just think if we all did that how much it would help!

That's it for me today. We've got some dreary weather, so a good day to clean the house - - - - nah! I think I'll play some more!

Thanks for stopping by - have a great week! :)

Hi Barb, sorry I've been missing out these last few months, but very fun to come back to your creative cards! What fun to win a SSS kit, good for you! I love your use of black to hightlight those gorgeous papers on the first card, and how versitile are you; you can go from a fantastic, graphic masculine card to such a sweet, feminine Mother's Day card.

Hello Barb
Have you stepped out of the box here? No HA stamps!
Love your Pp, you have combined them so well on your first card. Your second is dynamic, but the Black does that, especially when accented with White. It is a wonderful masculine card.
Your third is all you and the flowers are delightful, soft and friendly. Great cards.
Smiles:)
Sue
