Simon Says Stamp "Hey Love" Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY




Welcome everyone. Today we are celebrating the latest Simon Valentines release "Hey Love".
If you're coming from Kristina Werners blog, then you're in the right place. 

First up, I thought I'd show you some unassuming dies I designed from this release. They are the Partial Cut Leaves. They can be placed anywhere on your card to create little leaves that 
lift off the page.


I die cut my leaves up the right side of a white panel then added a single flower. I stamped the message using Slate ink. Then I placed the panel over a top folding Fog notecard and added Nuvo drops in Oyster.


Next, in an attempt to use up some washi tape, I created a collage with tape, paint and die cuts. I just went for it. I didn't even worry about what hearts were left in the die cut piece


When I was happy with my layering, I used some black Enamel Accents on the painted area as a finishing touch. Creating this way is relaxing and unpredictable! 


Finally... this die.. The Heart of Flowers. It's super fun. I created it with this card in mind. My thoughts of creating a watercolor panel with the die cut on top worked out really well. 
You could use any color theme
really, but I went with a rainbow theme!


To add the greeting, I just white embossed it on a strip of black cardstock for contrast and set it at the bottom of the heart.


GIVEAWAY!!
Simon Says Stamp is giving away a $25 gift card to one lucky winner from each blog on the hop. Be sure to leave a comment below for a chance to win. Winners will be announced Monday on the Simon blog. Good Luck!!

I am not normally a lover of the type of card that first one is, however it is my favorite one. Love the leaf die and how it was used.

katie said...

I have to get those dies! Such a cool way to use washi tape too. Going to break mine out and give it try.

Prentzess said...

I love the bright colors, but was really struck by the white with white and the touch of green. It was so elegant looking!

sharpstamps said...

Love all of these cards. The first is so elegant, the third so colourful, but my favourite is the second - the collage one.

Iris Esther Lopez said...

Beautiful cards. The leaf dies are fantastic and the heart of flowers is so pretty.

Stacy said...

I really like that heart full of flowers die. It totally makes a card so complex with just a simple die

Lori Pus said...

Very pretty

Lindsey said...

These are fantastic! Love them all, but (surprisingly) it is your neutral scheme that really speaks to me. So beautiful!

Marcia Harper said...

Love them all- especially all the dimension of the first card!

Allison Ehresman Grussenmeyer said...

very cool and groovy ... all so different and all so creative!

Stephanie Desbiens-McDonald said...

I love that rainbow tye-dye heart! That's what made me want to bye that dye!

Charlotte C said...

Be still, my heart. Gorgeous cards, and I love, love, love the leaves.

Christy O said...

I absolutely adore the cut leaves. I will be purchasing those dies. Love the tie dye look of the last card. So thankful for the inspiration!

Sue D said...

Such beautiful cards. I especially like the "Love You to Pieces" card; so pretty and such fun!

Tona said...

These are all fantastic! Thanks for the inspiration.

LI$@ A creations said...

Love these cards! Especially the one with the flower heart and rainbow colors. So cute! Thanks for sharing!

Gail Plaskiewicz said...

Oh my gosh, you made some stunning cards! I am totally impressed with that first card with the flower on it but how do you mail it without the flower getting squished? It looks like it would make the perfect wedding card or anniversary card. My dad is 93 and my mom is 89. He's in a nursing home right now but will be coming home soon. If I had a die cutter I would so totally make this card for my mom to give to my dad. We went to visit him today and he was telling my mom how much he loved her and she was saying it back. It was so cute! They have been married since 1950. I wish i could make them this card.
I like the LOVE card and saw the die. It almost looks like you could use it as a stencil since I don't have a die cutter. I'm seriously thinking of buying it for that. I really like what you did with this card.
Last but not least is my very favorite card because of all the beautiful, tie dyed colors. That looks like it was so much to make and I see it had my favorite color yellow in it. I can see how I couldn't use this as a stencil and I wish I could because I would make a card just like this.
I love them all! You did an amazing job and $25 would let me get some amazing stuff.
