Grungy Pink Valentine with Simon Says Stamp

Hello! I have another video for you in my Valentine's Day card series! This one features the new February Simon Says Stamp card kit - Watercolor Fantasy. I love this kit! Everything in it is so beautiful! I have more projects using this kit so stay tuned for more!

I'll also be entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. This week is anything goes! Be sure to head over and link up your creations! 
Here is my first card using the kit. I started by die cutting a few pieces of paper - I used some SSS cream cardstock and the patterned paper with the pink heart in the middle. Since I couldn't ever fit the whole heart on a card, I thought I'd die cut it so that I got some of the color. The die that I used is from Spellbinders Office Supplies. I love how it looks like a page torn out of a notebook! I stamped and embossed my sentiment at the bottom, stamped some hearts with Blush Crush ink from SC, and added some skinny Washi tape. I taped them together so that the tags would be staggered. 
I cut the card base from SSS Cotton Candy cardstock and stamped a bunch of elements onto the paper using Blush Crush and Well Red inks from SC. I also added some more Washi to bring some gold into the card base. Then, I used some SSS Distress Paint mixed with water and spattered some white paint onto the card. It wasn't giving me the look I had envisioned, so I tried black instead. I used my Black Soot Distress Ink Pad and smooshed it onto my mat with some water and spattered the paint onto my card. This was more what I wanted. 
I die cut some hearts using the Holiday Shapes die from SSS and added those and some gold sequins onto my card using Micro Glue Dots. The die cut pieces are added with foam squares and I added a mini clothes pin as an accent! 

I hope you enjoyed today's video! I have plenty more coming your way! We are supposed to get a bit more snow, so who knows?! Maybe I'll be holed up in my craft room! :)
