SSS Fresh Bloom Release Blog Hop + Prizes!

Hey guys!

I am so excited about Simon Says Stamp's new, Fresh Bloom release because when you live in snowy, cold Minnesota - anything having to do with springtime makes ya happy!

As you can see in the banner below, there's a code you can use to receive a free, Lucky To Know You die, with any purchase, while supplies last. The code is FRBLM89. The code will expire on Sunday, March 10 at 11:59pm EDT.

Simon is also giving away a $25 gift certificate at every stop along the hop! They'll choose the winners from the comment sections on each blog, so be sure to leave a comment below. They'll be announcing the winners on Wednesday, March 13, on their blog.

Did you know Simon has card galleries on their blog, where you can link up your very own cards and/or projects, for everyone to see? You can find the galleries right here.

I'm so glad you've stopped by today! You should've arrived here from Anna's blog, Love, Live, Create. If you want to start at the beginning of today's hop, you can start here at Simon's blog. This is day 2 of the hop, so if you'd like to check out day 1, you can click here.

Okay, let's get to my cards - I went a little crazy with the products I was sent and had so much fun playing with it all. I'm sharing A LOT of cards, so I won't go into too many details about how each one was created, but if you have any questions, just ask and I'll reply as soon as I can.

All the products I used are listed below in the affiliate links, at no extra cost to you. Thank you for your support!

My first two cards use a beautiful stamp set called, Blossoming. I kept both cards very simple, using Zig markers on the first, and Copics on the second.

My next two cards have flowers too. Shouldn't surprise anyone lol! The first one uses the Buttercup stamp set. It's such a delightful set!
 Aren't those the sweetest flowers?!

And this next card uses the gorgeous, Dahlia Stem die. I Love this die! All I did was color each individual petal and leaf with some pink and green Copic Markers, then pieced it all back together for a clean and simple card.

Okay, as you probably know, Alcohol Inks are all the rage again right now, so I used them for my next two cards, along with a wonderful, sentiment stamp and die set called, You Got This. It has some beautiful, encouraging sentiments and look closely at how cool the dies cut out around them. Love that!

Yes, there's more - 4 more to be exact. But wait! I used the same stamp set for each of them because it's that good. Seriously, it's a must have! It's called, Geometric Pattern Builder and I couldn't stop playing with it! And on the first three, I used sentiments from the, You Got This set. So fun! This first one was created with Distress Oxide Inks.

For this one, I used Copic Markers.

 And watercolors were used on the last two.

Love how this one turned out!

If you're still with me, thank you! I know that was a long post but I hope I've inspired you to check out these products, plus many more that are available with this fabulous, new release!

Next up on the hop is Kristina, at her blog, Lachristanel Design.

Enjoy the last couple stops on the hop and thanks so much for stopping by!
