SSS Better Together Blog Hop!


Simon released a grouping of products called "Better Together".  The release celebrates life.  Sharing hugs, sharing love, spending time together, giggling, laughing, expressing how much we care for each other are great ways to celebrate our lives.  Even though we are often physically far apart from our friends and family, we can connect through words and cards are such a delightful way for us to reach out to one another.

So with that said... I made a simple card full of hearts and love. I used the Building Hearts Stencil and Sketch Heart die as my focal points using bold colors of Slate and Doll Pink ink.


I tucked small hearts from the Super Heart Border die into a window cut from the Large Tags.


I've shot a quick video of how to use the unique stencil and how everything comes together, enjoy!


Your next stop on the hop is to my friend and amazing designer KRISTINA WERNER!

Simon Says Stamp is giving away a prize package on each stop of the hop, leave a comment for your chance to win. Winners will be selected on January 23rd.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoy the hop!!
