Simon Says Stamp Falling For You Blog Hop!!!

Hi everyone, welcome to my stop on the hop. "Falling for You" is a fun release that has many things falling... like Falling Hearts, Falling Stars. But what I'm really excited about is the Bokeh Lights stencils!!!

These stencils come in a three pack with different size Bokeh clusters. I've created an effect by covering my paper with ink, then using the stencils and a baby wipe to remove some of the color. In a matter of minutes I was done. 

I created a shaker card using the new Nested Circles dies. Before I adhered my acetate in place, I stamped it using the Circle Sayings stamps with White StazOn. I also used the stencil with some embossing paste on the front of my card for a little texture. Once everything was dry, I assembled everything together with sequins to complete the shaker. 

Your next stop on the hop is to my amazing little friend... Jennifer McGuire!!! If you get lost along the way, you can head over to the Simon Says Stamp blog for a list of all the stops.

Be sure to comment on each blog post for a chance to win a Simon Says Stamp Prize pack randomly selected by Simon on April 28.  

Thanks everyone for stopping by, happy hopping!!!

All in One Place: Simon Says Stamp May Card Kit

This has to be one of my favorite kits so far, I can't decide if it's the stamps or the gorgeous papers, either way, I found it really easy to quickly pop out a few cards!

I shot a video of the walkthrough and how to make the card above but also show how I stamped several images first using my Misti to use for additional cards.

For this card, I used several stamped banners to create an arrangement. 

And this card uses the papers and stickers that are included in the kit. 

This ink pad is a must have! A beautiful soft Pale Blush Pink!
Thanks for stopping by, remember the kit starts shipping in a couple days and I think this one will go quick!

Simon Says Stamp April Card Kit Blog Hop!

Hi everyone! Welcome to my stop on the Simon Says Stamp April Card Kit 2015 BLOG HOP!! It's celebration time! The bright and cheerful April Card kit is delightful for celebrating any occasion.   

I've created a birthday card using the Big Birthday Wishes stamp set embossed in Gold to coordinate with the papers in the kit. 

I've used the Simon Says Stamp Balloon Dies to cut out my greeting and cut out a few other colors while I was at it. I used a bit of foam tape to lift up the ballon with the greeting. 

To finish things up I added everything to a top folding white card with a strip of star paper from the kit. Then added twine bows and star brads to the balloons.

 We will be choosing winners from your comments section to win a Simon Says Stamp goody bag filled with fresh and exciting new products.  The winners will be chosen on Wednesday, April 15th! Good Luck!

You next stop on the hop is to the amazing and UBER talented Kristina Werner
