10 Cards 1 Kit – SSS Card Kit Valentine’s 2018 (With Video)

I’ve spent the weekend playing with card kits, and now with Valentine’s just a couple of days away I wanted to share with you the cards I made with the Simon Says Stamp Valentine’s kit. The patterned papers that came in this kit are the same as the ones in the January card kit. I shared my cards from that kit yesterday so be sure to check that out for more inspiration on how to use the papers.

Card 1 – Pizza My Heart

I used a Neenah Desert Storm card base for my first card and stamped a pattern across it with the pizza images from the Foodie Friends stamp set. I used Barely Beige ink to give a tone-on-tone look. I then cut a heart from the Pebbles Inc. Forever My Always patterned paper using a Sizzix Heart framelit and adhered that to the card base with double-sided tape. Finally I white heat embossed a sentiment in white onto a snippet of black and popped it up across the heart using black foam squares.


Dies R Us – For The One I Love

HLS Anything Goes With Dies – Use Dies

Moving Along With The Times – Love

Uniko Challenge – Something Old, Something New and Optional: Love (The stamp set is new, and the die is old)

Card 2 – Not Type-ical

My second card uses a large panel of the Pebbles Inc. Forever My Always patterned paper. I purposefully chose one with text as I wanted it to go with the typewriter. I stamped both the typewriter and the sentiment on to snippets of white cardstock. I used pink Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers and grey Yosoo alcohol markers to colour the typewriter. For the paper in the typewriter I used Eggshell SN marker. I then fussy cut the image out and adhered it to the card across a line of the Doodlebug Loopy Love Striped Grosgrain Ribbon.


Allsorts Challenge – Love Is In The Air

Sweet Stampin’ – Girly

Card 3 – Stripes of Love

Card 3 is inspired by one of the cards I made with the January card kit. I adhered three lines of the Heidi Swapp Red Glitter Marquee Love Washi Tape to a Neenah Desert Storm card base. I then applied the love-filled heart American Crafts Valentine Mini Marks Gold Rub-on sheet on to some white card and die cut it with a Sizzix Heart framelit. I adhered it to the card with foam tape. As a final touch I snipped the legs off of two of the Creative Impressions Metallic Red Heart Brads and adhered them to opposite corners of the card base using Glossy Accents


Mod Squad – Heart Focal Point

Power Poppy – Love to Sparkle

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday – It Must Be Love

The Paper Players – Red, Kraft and White

Card 4 – Fruity Love

I turned to the Crate Paper Main Squeeze 6 x 12 Sticker sheet for card four. I cut myself three little squares of coordinating patterned papers and topped each of them with fruit stickers. I adhered the back-most panels with one layer of foam tape, then popped the front square up further using two layers.


Lil Patch of Crafty Friends – Anything Goes

Sketch For You To Try – Sketch/Layout

Card 5 – Pizza Hearts

The fifth card takes some inspiration from the previous one. This time I used hearts instead of squares, and only one is on foam tape. I topped each heart with pizzas from the Doodlebug Time For Takeout Shape Sprinkles and finished off with a white-on-black sentiment tucked into the hearts.


AAA Cards – All You Need Is Love

CAS On Friday – Dies

CAS-ual Fridays – Hearts

Fusion – Sketch/Layout

HLS CAS Challenge – Hearts

Card 6 – Sweet Honey Bear

The sixth card is very clean and simple, and was quick to make. I again die cut a patterned paper heart, and I attached the honey bear sticker along with a sentiment. I then adhered them to my red card base using foam tape.

STAMPlorations Challenge – Paint It Red

Card 7 – Hey Llamas

I wanted to use the llama stickers for card seven and decided it would be fun to make it look as though the llamas are laying on a blanket. With that in mind I cut a panel of the tartan card stock, and added a strip of contrasting paper just below. I topped the tartan panel with the llamas, then added a sentiment sticker between them.


YNS Sketch and Color Challenge – Sketch/Layout

Card 8 – I Love Us

I use several different patterned papers for card eight. I cut some diagonal strips of the teal pinstripe paper and adhered them in opposite corners of the card base. I then added a panel of another pattern to one side and topped it with my focal patterned paper panel. Finally I added a bold sentiment using some stickers.


Sketch Saturday – Sketch/Layout

Card 9 – Valentine’s Panels

I again used stickers and patterned paper for card number nine. I made four panels from two different patterned papers and adhered them in an alternating panel. I added a sentiment and image sticker to the centre as the focal point.


MFT Sketch Challenge – Sketch/Layout

Card 10 – Happy Valentine’s Day

My final card again started with a panel of patterned paper. I laid some of the washi tape alongside it and topped that with a strip of another patterned paper which I popped up on foam tape. The final element was a sticker to finish off the card.

I had fun playing with this card kit, as I usually do! I don’t think there’s a single card that I’m not happy with here. I think my favourites are two, three and five. Which do you like best? I still have plenty of product left from this card kit, and in fact as I mentioned in the video I’ve already used some of it (the stamp set and the little note cards) to make a set of punny Valentine’s cards which I’ve videoed and intend to share on Wednesday. Hopefully I can get it sorted to share on Wednesday (I have so much to do at the moment!) because otherwise we’ll have passed Valentine’s, which wouldn’t be ideal!
