Simon Says Stamp Spring Plush Blog Hop!


Welcome everyone! I'm the last stop of the Simon Says Stamp Spring Plush Blog Hop!  This release is all about die cutting and stitching to create your own little works of art!

I'll start you off with the Charmed Heart Plush die that I've created using what I think is a 70's color combination. I loved mixing and matching colors for a dramatic effect. 


Next up is the Puffy Cloud die. I used grey and white felt for the base so it can be flipped over.  I've hung the raindrops from fishing line at the bottom and also used some at the top so the cloud can be suspended. What a great way to welcome Spring! 


Next up is this adorable Happy Sunshine die.  This die set comes with the stitch marks to create the smile and I've switched things up a bit using his cheeks to create his large eyes. Supper fun!


Finally I've created this Happy Bear using Desert Storm cardstock. I've shaded his face area with Frayed Burlap Distress ink to give it a little dimension and die cut his scarf from mint from the Pastel felt set


I hope you've enjoyed the inspiration along your way of the hop. If you would like to see a list of all the designers, visit the Simon Says Stamp blog post!

Be sure to leave a comment on this post for a chance to win a Simon Says Stamp goodie bag. Winners will be chosen on Monday, March 7th, Good Luck!!

Thanks for stopping by!
