SSS June 2014 Card Kit

Have I mentioned how great Simon Says Stamp Card kits are?  I'm pretty sure I have but if you haven't noticed or maybe this is the first post you've ever seen of my wonderfully creative blog, then I think I'll have to indulge you in the awesomeness of their kits, except for maybe the May kit...uh, yeah, that one was all boy and I have two girls.  Yep, I have a house full of girls.  My dog is a girl, my cat is a girl.  My husband feels really left out most of the time.  Too bad so sad for that and the May card kit.  I mean, I didn't even make a post about it but I did make a card. 
Wanna see?
That's about as boy as it gets for me...Fail.

Let's not worry about the past though.  The present is so much more relevant.  Sure.
I'm loving the June kit so much for it's whimsicality and all the fun flowers.  Who doesn't like flowers? 

I was inspired by Kristina Werner and her watercolor Distress Ink (my fave product evah!) technique video, here:

This is what I ended up with:
Had I to do it all over again, I would have stamped the boarder first, then stamped the flowers, etc... so the design doesn't seems so crowded, you know? It's still pretty and still nice and still kind of watercolor(ish).

I'm going to have to play some more with the stamp set because there are so many more elements to it, as far as the many sentiments and layers of flowers and leaves.  I've got plenty of time to come up with something.  I think it will be great for my sister's wedding card, I mean, the one I'm going to make her.  I have a good full week to play...

That's the best part about creating, you can make whatever you want!
