A CAS Card ( with a Colorful Twist) and More

 Hello friends!
This post is a Two-fer! My first card was made from Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit. This is my 9th card from this kit, I believe. I created a simple watercolor sentiment and used much of the elements from the kit. The additional use of doily seems fitting, too!

It is so worth the price of subscription if you are considering one (details here). The latest March kit is so pretty and is now available here. I have yet to receive mine.
 This is my entire collection made with the February kit.

My 2nd card was initially made for Simon Says Stamp One Layer Challenge.
However, if you ask any One Layer purists, this barely qualifies as one layer. It was bugging me a bit, in the end, I had a re-do (see here). I guess I was just slightly obsessed..... LOL

I heart you ( SSS, Feb 10)
The flowers were created with Peerless watercolors. I felt that the card needs a little "something" I added some black ink splatter. I simple used Wink of Stella Black and squeezed in more ink and then splashed onto the card stock. Really simple and effective.

I heart you (Feb 10, SSS)
Have Have you joined the One Layer Challenge? If you use a die embellishments for a One layer, it's totally fine! :)  I hope that you enjoy this post. 

Thanks for stopping by!

I was unable to comment on your previous post, so I'd just like to say those were fabulous cards too. I can't believe the awesome cards you created with the February kit, you really knocked it out of the park!

Virginia, Happy Valentines Day ! You made so many beautiful and sweet cards with the February Kit. So much variety. I love to see how creative you are. I haven't purchased the kits yet,but each time I see your cards I'm wishing I had. I know I would look forward to getting a kit each month.

This post really says a lot about the value of the SSS kits. Of course talent helps. Nice job. And I just love SSS kits.

Gracious, you really used up that is a good one. Love the papers in it, especially the one on your first card. It's so cool that you were able to match your watercolor piece so perfectly. I can see why you've used the paper smooches die so much, it's so versatile. Everything you've done with it is magical. Who says obsession isn't a good thing.
