The Color of Fun Blog Hop for Simon Says Stamp!


Hi everyone! I'm your last stop on the COLOR OF FUN blog hop... so sad I know! This has to be one of my favorite releases so far, I know I say that overtime, but I really mean it! You can see the entire product release HERE!

I've made a few cards using some of the product... starting out with the Build a Cone stamp set. Aren't the ink colors just delicious???


I added a bit of Frosted Lace Stickles to the heart... reminds me of sugar!


Next up is one of my favorite sets... One with Nature!


I used an unusual combination of colors... my new love Catkin and Spring Rain. Please note: I think I showed the wrong ink in my video below... it's definitely Spring Rain, sorry for the confusion.


Finally, I had a play with My Sunshine!


Duckling ink is the perfect creamy yellow for a bold sun!


I've put together a video explains how my cards came together, you can watch it below or on my YouTube channel


I have all the blogs listed in the hop just in case you missed one. 
  
GIVEAWAY!!!
As part of the blog hop, Simon Says Stamp is giving away a prize pack of crafty goodies to one person on each stop of the hop. So be sure to leave a comment at each blog you visit during the hop today. This will increase your chances of winning. Winners will be announced on the Simon Says Stamp Blog on Monday, June 15. Good luck!

Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed the hop and have found some inspiration along the way. Have a great week-end!
