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.

GIVEAWWAY!!!
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!!!
