I was so excited to get this kit, Be Happy, a little early AND have the time to sit down and play! This kit is full of awesomeness that I haven’t even touched on yet! The stamp set, Happy and Smile is SO fun with a lot of different sentiment mixtures that can be made and the Doodlebug Summer Sprinkles and Sunkissed 6×6 patterned papers are ADORABLE! Guess what else!?! There is a wafer thin die included TOO!
I was a long time subscriber to Simon Says Stamp’s Card Kits before I was on their design team and I have always felt like it is such a great value for what you pay!
I stayed up late the other night… you know the night Mister Harley wouldn’t go to bed without me 😉 and I created THREE fun cards with this kit! Any additional supplies I used such as inks I have linked below.
For this card I really wanted the circle die to stand out, so I made a simple background with the sunshine stamp and cut the smile circle die from black cardstock. I love all the little sentiments in the stamp set like this one here “the sun is out”. Anyone that knows me knows I am ALWAYS smiling when the sun is out!
For this next card I heat embossed the “smile” stamp in white on Distress Watercolor Cardstock. I then played with pooling water on Distress Watercolor Cardstock just where I wanted the color, then I spread some Distress Ink in that area. I dried it a bit with my heat tool and then did the same for the next color, blending the colors as I moved down. I have the Distress Colors linked below. This is so fun to do and you can keep playing and adding layers which is really cool! Again I used one of the smaller sentiments “It’s your day!” and then added some of the Doodle Bug Summer Sprinkles. To finish the card off I added a few touches of champagne stickles.
For this third card, I took out a bunch of inks in a rainbow color and repetitively stamped the word “happy” on a stitched square. I then stamped the bold “happy” with Versafine Onyx Black ink (my fave!). To make this sentiment pop even more I traced over it with a black gel pen. Want to know a little secret? I mis-stamped in the lower left corner… added a Doodlebug Sprinkle and VOILA! fixed 😉 That gorgeous yellow cardstock comes in the kit and the rainbow diagonal stripes was part of the pattern papers I got in the kit as well.
This is only 3 cards- there is so much more product left in the kit to play with including some fun rainbow washi! Remember that time I took the card kit and created TEN thank you’s?
Be sure to order the kit quickly if you want to have one they tend to sell out because they are so fabulous! – you can buy the kit individually for $29.95 or as a monthly subscription for $24.95. I have also linked below some of the individual items

Hey Jenn! I just love the happiness these cards exude. I wasn’t aware that Simon Says had a monthly card kit. Guess what I just did? Yup, signed up for the monthly kit. They look amazing and like a great value. You are always pointing us in the best inking directions! I love it and appreciate it. Thank you!
I love your cards. The New kit is awesome.
Your cards are all cute but i LOVE the third one so much! Great job!
