Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp Best Days Blog Hop! You should be arriving from sweet Heather Ruwe's blog.
Here's the full new Simon Says Stamp Best Days Release:
What are your favourites? I'm eyeing all the new picture book goodies and the Suzy's "It's a Dog's Life" Watercolor Printables amongst others.
Yesterday I shared these cards on my blog showcasing some of the new release:
Initially I was going to share them as part of the blog hop today but Wednesday morning creativity hit and I spent the morning making the cards I'm sharing now. I stamped Simon's new Reverse Polka Background onto Neenah White Cardstock with Simon's Steel Blue, Pale Blush Pink, Spring Rain, and Smoke Inks. I then diecut each piece with one of Simon's Stitched Rectangle Dies. I thought the polka dots would be perfect for creating patterns with various Lucy's Cards Sequin Mixes.
For this next card, I added my sequins diagonally to the Reverse Polka Background, leaving every other row open. I die cut one of Simon's Nested Heart Dies and stamped a sentiment from their previously released Loving Hearts Stamp Set. I adhered the heart with foam tape, trimmed the edge off and added a few sequins to the heart.
This third card has sequins added to the Reverse Polka Background in a vertical pattern. The sentiment from Simon's Handlettered Encouragements Stamp Set was stamped onto a piece of cardstock diecut with one of Simon's Stitched Circles Dies.
For my final card I added sequins diagonally to the Reverse Polka Background to create a rainbow. The sentiment from Simon's Thoughtful Messages Stamp Set was stamped onto one of Simon's Nested Talk Bubbles.
Each panel was matted with white cardstock before being adhered to cardstock that matched the stamped background. These were then adhered to notecards made from Neenah 110 lb White Cardstock.
Supplies (with affiliate links at no extra cost to you):
Simon is giving away a $25 coupon for every stop on the hop. Winners will be chosen over the weekend from the Blog Hop bloggers' comment sections and announced on the Simon Says Stamp store blog on Wednesday.
The next stop on the hop is the wonderful Lorraine Aquilina.
Thanks for stopping by!
