"Look For the Miracles" Stamp Set

Hello friends!
It's that exciting time of the month ....
Simon Says Stamp June Card Kit  arrived in my house this past Tuesday!
I am particularly excited about this monthly kit because of the stamp set, pattern paper and the extra pens ...well, everything.
 The Doodle style flowers are so fun and whimsical. The sentiment is uplifting even though some may think it has a strong religious tone, but really, it makes such empowering encouragement cards!

I got right to it and whipped up a few .... here are the first two.

This card is all about white embossing and fussy cutting. I took the short cut with pattern paper! You see, one of the paper paper from the kit is all about rainbow colors.  I strategically embossed the images with the flowers and leaves/vines. I double-up the sentiment to make the colors pop. I also added some Glittery Clear Stickles (a must-have in any craft room) onto the embossed flowers. That die "dream" is also included in the kit....isn't it awesome or what!?

With the same idea and pattern paper, I used the leftover flowers with the black card stock (also included in the kit). I created a frame with Stitched Rectangles.
Look for the Miracles

I added tinny dots with the Kaiserkraft Gel and Glitter Pens (from the kit). They are super bright and sure add some interest to the white-embossed sentiment. Kaisercraft Color Gel Pen Set comes in 12 colors.

Besides the stamp set and all, I also highly recommend the Bo Bunny 6x6 Believe Paper Pad. This pattern paper will make a great addition for any floral stamp sets that you may have. 
Think emboss and fussy cut--how fun is that!?

Here are Part 1 and Part 2 (in case you miss them).

Dear me, what an amazing twofer. These doodley flowers are terrific but what you created from them is beyond beautiful. The colors are yummy and the card designs are spot on. Very impressive...and, yes, I have a crush on that "dream" die.
