Here's a link to all the Simon Brand Galleries and here's the link to the new, Let's Chill Gallery. There is so much inspiration to see! I encourage you to check them out and add your own cards/projects!

MY CARDS: 

First up is the adorable, Birthday Bears stamp set. I did some Copic coloring and masking to create this cute scene.


 

Next is this beautiful embossing folder called, Sunflower Field and it comes with a matching die! I embossed it onto a sheet of vellum and adhered that to my pink card base. I cut out three sunflowers from the same pink card stock and added those in a cluster, onto the vellum overlay. The sentiment is also new. It's from the Hello Sunshine Die Set.


 

For my third card, I used the fun, Beach Party Umbrellas Cling Stamp. I love this stamp! I had so much fun water coloring the images with Zig Markers, for a rainbow effect! I used the Hello Sunshine Die Set again, for the sentiment.


Are you ready for some foiling? I never thought I'd get into foiling but I love it now! It's not only fun, it gives amazing results too! For this card, I used the pretty, Sketched Daisy Bloom Foil Plate and Die set. Why is foiling so difficult to photograph? Wish you could see the beautiful shine!



And last but not least is this fun beach scene! I used two new products for this card - the Let's Get Away stamp set, plus the Surf and Sand Stencil. Anyone wanna come join me here?! 


Okay, so that's it for me. I hope I've given you a few ideas for using some of the products from this fabulous release! Next up on the hop is the very talented Heather Hoffman!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of the hop!

 MY CARDS:

This first one was created using the Orange Blossoms Stencil and some of Simon's beautiful, Pawsitively Saturated inks. Easy but effective!


 

My next card features the Arches Background Cling Stamp. Simple, white, heat embossing and some ink smooshing with Distress Oxide Ink and regular Distress Ink. Love the results!



Next up is a slimline card, using the Bell Die Set. I cut out three of the bells, gave them some shading with Copic Markers, then adhered them, with foam adhesive, to a piece of Simon's Matte Silver Mirror Cardstock. Perfect for a wedding or anniversary!



For my last card, I used the Spiral Ball Hot Foil Plate. I hot foiled it several times, used a circle die to cut them out, then adhered them to the card base with some foam adhesive, for a little dimension. Such a cool, fun product!


That's it for me! I hope I've helped give you a few ideas for using some of the products from this awesome release!
