SSS Best Days Release!

Hi everyone!

Today I'm sharing a couple of cards featuring the brand new Simon Says Stamp Best Days Release.

Here's the full release:

Isn't it great?! My favs are the Suzy's "It's A Dog's Life" Printables (I have to order those for my son!), the Birch Circle Die, Picture Book Sky, and the new Picture Book Walrus, Croc, and Lamb. I also LOVE the Line Dance Stencil, You Da Best Die, and all the new SSS Daniel Smith Watercoloring Sheets. I'm definitely going to have a hard time choosing!

In the meantime, Simon sent me a few new baby-themed goodies to play with and here are the cards I'm sharing today:

This first card features Simon's adorable new Oh, Baby Stamp Set and Reverse Polka Background Stamp. I stamped the images and sentiment on a piece of blue cardstock die cut from one of Simon's Stitched Rectangle Dies and paper pieced the stork and bundle. I coloured the heart in with a red Copic Marker and covered it with Glossy Accents. The stork's beak, as well as some grey shading, were also added with Copic Markers. It's hard to make out in the pictures but I also coloured the stork with a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Marker. The background panel started out with a piece of light pink cardstock which I stamped with the new Reverse Polka Background using Simon's Hollyhock Ink.

My second card features Simon's new Sweet Elephants Dies and Welcome, Little One Dies. The grey background panel was diecut using one of Simon's Wonky Rectangle Dies. The elephants were diecut from a singe piece of reversable patterned paper and their ears were interchanged. I added Hero Arts Black Pearls for the eyes. The woodgrain patterned paper was diecut with one of Simon's Stitched Wimbley Borders Dies and the sentiment is Simon's new Welcome, Little One Dies.

I hope you enjoy this new release as much as I do! Be sure to stop by tomorrow as I'll be sharing 4 new cards as part of Simon's Best Days Blog Hop!
