Hello friends! Today I'm sharing a couple of cards with the June 2019 Simon Says Stamp Card Kit, Leafy Frames! I knew that I just had to add some watercolor to these gorgeous Leafy Frame images included in the June kit! The cardstock, stamps, envelopes, and patterned paper are all from the June Kit. Dies, inks, embossing powders, and watercolors from my stash. Tell me what you're making with the June Kit. I can't wait to hear!

The embossed designs were watercolored with the following Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors:
- leaves: 51 May Green, 55 Green, 58 Ever Green
- pink flowers: 34 Dark Pink, 36 Wine Red
- orange flowers: 33 Orange
- shadow and splatters: 50 Pale Aqua, 91 Bluish Gold
The color was added with a water brush pen.
Once the background was completely dry, sentiments from the Leafy Frames Stamp Set was stamped in the center of each frame with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with Antique Gold Embossing Powder.
Each background was die cut with the medium Scallop Stitched Die to give the background lovely decorative edges. Thin strips of a patterned paper from the kit was adhered to the sides or top/bottom of the card bases as shown and the backgrounds were adhered in the center. This gives the look of a patterned paper background but stretches the design between 2 (or more!) cards! I could have gotten three cards from this one sheet of 6x6 paper!
To finish each card additional sentiments from the Leafy Frames Stamp Set were stamped on Green Leaf Cardstock with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder before being die cut with a Nested Banners Die. The sentiment was adhered with foam adhesive.
