Simon Says Stamp Splash of Color Blog Hop!!!


Ahhhhhh.... yes! A Splash of Color with all kinds of fun in the sun and playful goodies!!!
You can see the entire release HERE!

I created a card using the Pool Play set which features Abby and Jax, a really cute set with tiny little stamps you can use to fill in small areas (like fish in her goggles perhaps??).    


I've used the coordinating dies to cut out my pieces and tucked Abby in between a layer of waves. My coloring of choice are my pencils, love them, and easy to use in tight areas.


I've shot a quick video of how I've made my card, you can watch it below or on my

Thanks for coming by, I've put together a list of everything I've used on my card.
