Simon Says Stamp Cherished Collection Blog Hop + Giveaway


Welcome everyone!!!  
Today we're celebrating the release of the Simon Says Stamp Cherished collection !!

I have a few cards that I've created. This first one uses the Circular Lace Stencil with Distress inks blended through. Once I had my colors down, I removed the stencil and gave the paper a spritz of water. I used the Eyelet Large Border die on the bottom and placed the panel onto a top folding white card. I white embossed my greeting for the Thoughtful Messages set onto some printed paper and mounted to the card. 


Next up is a quick and easy Birthday card featuring the Big Perfect Shapes stamps. I inked them up with Distress inks, spritzed with water and stamped onto watercolor cardstock. I Used the Wonky Heart Die along with my birthday greeting to complete the card. 


Finally I have a fun card using the Wonky Hearts and Wonky Rectangle dies with an acrylic painted background. I used Dina Wakley paints with my finger for quick and easy coverage. Once the paint was dry, I die cut the panel.  I also die cut the word Wonky and paired it up with friend for a fun message. 


I hope I've given you some inspiration using some of our new items. Your next stop on the hop is to the talented Nina Marie Trapani!

I've listed the entire release below, I hope you enjoy!
