Simon Says Stamp Spring Plush Blog Hop (with GIVEAWAYS)!

Hi everyone,

I'm excited to be joining Simon Says Stamp for their Spring Plush Blog Hop in celebration of their newest release: Spring Plush. You should be arriving from the fabulous Kristina Werner's blog.


The Spring Plush Release is full of fun dies and felt to create all sorts of adorable spring time felt projects (as well as an adorable stamp set created in conjunction with Neat and Tangled):



Yesterday I shared THIS project using vellum, Jelly Bellys, and Simon's Plush Springtime Bunny Dies to create some Easter treats for my 4 kids:



For today's hop I wanted to use Simon's Plush Happy Sunshine Dies to create a sunshine card/ hair accessory using felt as well as a graphic card focused on using papers with a few felt embellishments.

First, here's the card with removable sunshine hair clip. I doubled up on the yellow felt to give it some sturdiness, hot glued the final project to a hair clip, and cut some slits into the card front for the clip to slide in. The sentiment is from Simon's My Sunshine Stamp Set.




Here's my second project, using the large circle from Simon's Plush Happy Sunshine Dies along with various colours of Simon Says Stamp Cardstock. Once I arranged these pieces on my card front, I die cut the smaller circles using the center from Simon's Plush Daisy Dies and some Echo Park Spring 6x6 Papers. I created a few felt embellishments using some of the smaller dies from Simon's Plush Springtime Bunny Dies and their Plush Button Egg Dies. The sentiment is from Simon's Friendship Blooms Stamp Set.



 Supplies:




Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a Simon Goody bag on every stop of the hop! Be sure to comment at each stop to increase your chances of winning. Simon Says Stamp will randomly choose the winners, contact them, and post the winners list on their blog Monday, March 7th.

Your next stop is the talented Amy Rysavy's blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Sarah

Wonderful ideas! Thanks so much. Now I have a fun and simple way to use up some of that patterned paper I am so addicted to! It really works. Too bad my youngest grand-girl just had a birthday. I only hope I will remember the hair-clip idea when my October grand-girl has hers! It's so much fun!

Sandy Small said...

Such cute ideas! The holes in the circles made your card with the circles very unique!

Unknown said...

I would so totally wear that in my hair! It's made of my favorite colors, yellow! I have short hair but I wear handmade hair things in my hair. I make and sell hair jewelry with beads among other things. I never thought of putting something for your hair on a card. Great idea! I will have to do this with a few cards. I love everything that you did. I saw a Hallmark Card once that had a face on it and the face had earrings on it that you could wear. Of course the card was pretty expensive but it reminded me of yours. It was a card but it was also a gift. You have some great ideas!

Unknown said...

The first thing that was posted didn't show up on my computer! All I got was a big square and then a tiny square inside the big square with a question mark in it. Just thought you should know.
