Simon Says Stamp March Release Blog Hop!

If you're looking for the Altenew blog hop, click here or scroll down. 

Hi there!  




Welcome to my stop on the Simon Says Stamp, March release blog hop! It's a fabulous release, filled with beautiful springtime products and it's appropriately called, New Beginnings. You can check out the full release here.

If you're following along the hop, you should've arrived from Kathy Racoosin's blog, The Daily Marker. Isn't she amazing? So crazy talented! If you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop, head over to the Simon Says Stamp blog here, to see the full list of designers.

Prizes:
Simon is giving away a $25 gift certificate at EACH STOP on the blog hop! They'll randomly select the winners from our comment sections over the weekend and will announce them on their blog, Tuesday, March 14th. So be sure to leave a comment below for a chance! 

I was lucky enough to be sent a couple of the new stamp and die sets to play with and I'm excited to share my cards with you today! The products I used are all listed at the bottom of the post.

First up is a set of four cards created using the adorable, Spring Seeds stamp and die set.





These sweet little images are so fun to color! I cut them all out using the matching die set and popped them up onto dry embossed panels from We R Memory Keepers, before adhering to the card bases. Images were colored with Copic Markers

For my next card, I used the fun, Artsy Flower Parts stamp and die set. There are so many possibilities with this one!




I used lots of yummy, Simon Says Stamp inks. I stamped my images, die-cut them with the matching dies and arranged them onto a Fog cardstock panel with foam adhesive. I also stamped some of the images onto the white card base, using Fog Ink. The sentiment is from Simon's, Choose Happy stamp set. I think the colored sequins add to the whimsical look of the card, don't you?


I love this release and ordered lots more products as soon as it went live! Couldn't help myself - spring is my favorite time of the year! (for weather AND stamping!)


Your next stop on the hop is my sweet friend, Shari Carroll! She is an amazing artist with such an eye for color and card design - I just know she'll wow you!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you're enjoying the hop! ♥
