Hey everyone! I'm running around like a crazy person today trying to get a million things done at once! I wanted to share these cards and video with y'all though now that it's all uploaded (and I'll have another Halloween card up later on tonight so be sure to check back!).
I stayed up later than usual last night because the latest Simon Says Stamp October 2016 Card Kit was calling my name and I couldn't resist pulling it out and creating something with it!
In the end I made a couple of cards using several parts of the kit along with a few other things (dies and Distress inks and some kraft card stock) here in my stash.
I created a wreath with several images from the Nutty Over You stamp set and distress inks, and had stamped the squirrel image with distress ink onto kraft card stock which I then cut out and adhered over it. Those little acorn stickers that come in the kit are beyond adorable - and so realistic looking!
I don't know how well it shows in the pics and video but I used my teflon bone folder and scoring board to create diagonal embossed lines on the SSS Burnt Orange card stock - it just gave it that extra something - and I was totally inspired by the patterned paper to do it!
I finished off the insides with images and a sentiment from the set and added a bit of the leftover patterned papers from what I'd used on the card fronts and that was it!
To see how these cards came together check out my video below:

I get asked a lot about where to purchase the supplies I use in my videos and blog posts. I list all the supplies I use at the end of my posts (below) or in the description box directly below my video on YouTube. If the product images have sets of letters below the image it means there's more than one place it can be purchased.
