Simon Says Stamp "New Beginnings" Blog hop + Giveaway!


Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp New Beginnings Blog Hop!! If you are coming from 
Barb Englers blog... you're in the right place!! If you are just joining me, you can start at the beginning of the Hop at the Simon Says Stamp blog HERE.

I've created a few cards and tags using some of the new stamps and dies from this release. To start you off...I've made a mini card using the Artsy Flower Parts stamps (embossed in white and watercolored). I also created a tag using the Funny Foods stamps (love these!!).


Next up is the Oval of Flowers die which I cut out from white card stock and mounted onto a panel of watercolored stripes.


And finally, a mini card and tag using the Spring Seeds stamp set.


Simon Says Stamp is giving away a $25 coupon to every stop on the hop from the comments section. Winners will be chosen over the weekend and posted on the Simon Says Stamp blog on Tuesday.  Good Luck to you all!

I'm the last stop on the hop. I hope you've enjoyed all the amazing inspiration from everyone. 
Have a fantastic weekend!!
