Simon Says Stamp Blog Hop


Welcome to my stop on the Simon Says Stamp Blog hop for the Mothers & Fathers 2014 release!!! I'm so excited to show you some of the images we've created for this release… from pregnant birds for mother's to be, to beautiful Springtime flowers. This release is sure to inspire you to get creative!!!!

For my hop card, I've used the We're Expecting Stamp set and dies. The simple design makes coloring easy… and I finally pulled out my color pencils to use on them.


I wanted this to look like the Momma bird is telling a younger bird that she is having a baby. The versatility of these images allow you to position them in many ways… even flying!


I've created a video of the whole process, including my coloring.



We have a really fun giveaway for this release hop! We will be randomly picking one commenter from each stop on the hop to win 2 brand new, not-yet released ink pads and coordinating packs of cardstock from the new color collection coming out on April 15, 2014!! Just leave a comment on each of the blog posts as you hop along to be entered in the random drawings. The giveaways will stay open untilThursday April 10, 2014 at 6:00pm EST and the winners will be announced on the Simon Says Stamp blog on Friday April 11, 2014.

Thanks for hopping by!

Now on to my friend the amazing and incredible Jennifer McGuire!
