Simon Says Stamp Valentines Hop!

Hello everyone! Welcome to my stop on the Hop! I'm so thrilled to be a part of the Simon Says Stamp Team and to show you a few of the items that I've created just for Valentines Days!

I've created a card using the new Mosaic Heart stencil, Heart In a Box die and All About Love stamp set. This is a quick and easy card to make but these supplies can also be used for more complex techniques.


I used Spun Sugar, Ripe Persimmon and Worn Lipstick Distress inks to create mixed tones of color.  Using Wink Of Stella on my die cut letters gave me just enough shine!


I've put together a video of the process.  Sit back and enjoy!


I created another card by using the negative space of my die cut word and the Drawn Hearts Cling Background.


To see the entire Valentines Release… you can click HERE!

The awesome folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $25 Gift Card to the Simon store to one commenter on every blog in the hop. That's 16 different chances to win!



The next stop on the Hop is the fabulous and talented

Thanks for stopping by!

Olivia said...

I live in a household of all boys, so hearts are not favorites. I do think I might be able to pass off that heart mosaic on a card. I love the versatility of that stencil!

Anonymous said...

Fab cards. The die cut 'YOU' could have made into a third card using the first technique. Instead of cherish love, it could be 'cherish you' in the heart mosaic. Just a thought.

Gigracer said...

Both cards are cute, but I just love that mosaic stencil!

Diana said...

Love your cards. Great use of the negative space on the last one. Thanks for sharing.

Cindy Lou said...

I really like it when using positive and negative is shown for a diecut. It uses your "scraps" and makes you thin more creatively.
