Simon Says Stamp "From All of Us" Blog Hop!!!

Hi everyone! Welcome to my blog. Today we are having a little blog hop to celebrate and give you inspiration for the Simon Says Stamp "From All of Us" release.

I've created a couple cards, the first one using the Thanks Scallop border die. I wanted to make an everyday thank you card so I added small flowers and used light tones of papers. You could use this die to create your holiday thank you cards by adding a small tree in place of the flowers.

I die cut a panel of white card stock, added a little piece of pool colored pattern paper just under the "thanks" and used fog card stock as my base to create a top folding card. The flowers are die cut from an older Sizzix die set that I have from Neenah card stock. I colored them with Coral Reef ink using my ink blending tool and topped them off with wood dots. 

My next card uses one of the Holiday Watercolor Cards. I painted the card with my Distress inks Peacock Feathers, Peeled Paint, Hickory Smoke, Spiced Marmalade and a touch of Ripe Persimmon

I did something a little different with the card. Once the panel was dry, I cut out around the snowman and tree then mounted it (with foam tape) to a top folding fog card. I even included the snowballs. 

To finish it off, I colored in the small dots and tassels of the scarf and cap with a silver signo pen, then added Rocky candy glitter to the snowballs an d puffy ball of the cap by using a bit of Multi Matte Medium as the glue. 

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy the inspiration along your way! Also, be sure to leave comments on all the hop blogs because Simon Says Stamp will be drawing a winner on each stop for a prize package valued at approximately $50!!

SSS Create Joy Blog Hop!!

Welcome to my stop on the hop!!!

I'm so proud and excited to show you my bear (I'm calling him Stan!). Stan is from the Bear Necessities stamp set and uses a unique mixture of dies and stamps that work together for fun results. 

I've put Stan in a Christmas snowsuit (with pockets of course) and added a little holiday embellishment. The snowsuit or pajamas are made from a die that has a stamp to go with it for the buttons and face hole. It fits perfectly with the die for the bear so they always fit together!

I've created a video of how my card came together, I hope you enjoy!

You can find the complete Create Joy collection HERE!

We have quite the line up of talent for this hop which I've listed below. 

Simon Says Stamp will be picking a winner from each blog with a value of $50. Remember to leave a comment on each stop of the hop for a better chance to win.
