Mission: KitPossible Part Deux and Giveaway Winner!

Pin It

Hello and TGIF (unless you're in a part of the world where it's not yet -- or already has been -- Friday!  {…but I digress…})!

Welcome back for the final reveal of our Mission: KitPossible Part Deux!  As you know, I have teamed up with some super-crafty ladies -- Melissa Shea and Christy Reuling -- to stretch (or flex!) our creative muscles in using our September Simon Says Stamp Card Kits.  We initially challenged each other with a set of cues and then each made a card, using only the kit, which incorporated each of those cues.  You can see the card I made here.

That was fun, but today is my favorite because we get to see what else everyone has made using the kit and their own inspiration (and maybe a thing or two from their own stashes!  ;)

To remind you, here's the kit we are working with (available as a one-time-only thing or via a subscription to the kit through Simon Says Stamp):

And here are the cards I made:

 This one used the washi tape and some of the Jenni Bowlin stickers and one of the really sweet stamps that come in the kit, along with a couple of Prima flowers from my collection… (you know I love me some Prima!)

This card was one of those that kept changing in my head as I was putting it together…  Used that same sweet sentiment stamp (it was my favorite in the kit!) and die-cut some notched flowers (PTI) and leaves (W Plus 9) and embossed my base (American Crafts) all on the papers that came in the kit.  Though it was a mystery to me till the very end, I am quite pleased (and pleasantly surprised) with the way it turned out!  :)

And this was a 3" x 3" quickie (thanks for the suggestion, Mel!) that used the ruler embellishment, stickers, stamp, and papers from the kit.  {that saying -- "You rule"-- takes me back a few years!  ha!}

I hope you enjoy these…  they were sure fun to put together!  Don't forget to stop by Melissa and Christy's blogs to see what else they have created…  I know I can't wait!  :)

But before you go, I need to announce the winner of my Mission: KitPossible giveaway!  The winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp and a few goodies from my stash!  :)  So without further ado…. has spoken and the winner is:
