SSS Lucky To Know You Blog Hop - Day 1 + Giveaways!

Hey guys!

It's been awhile since I posted here on my blog but I'm excited today to share my cards for the Simon Says Stamp Lucky to Know You release blog hop!


It's such a fun release filled with wonderful products for all your Easter and springtime card making! 

FREE GIFT:
As you can see from the graphic above, Simon is giving away either a 3X4 Wooly Lucky stamp set, OR a Color The World enamel pin! Use code WLY777 or FLF584 - your choice. The free gifts are available while supplies last and this promotion will expire on 3/8 at 11:59 pm EDT.

GIVEAWAY: 
Simon is also giving away a $25.00 gift certificate at every stop along the hop from the comment sections! Winners will be posted on the Simon Says Stamp blog on Wednesday, March 11th.

SIMON GALLERIES:
Did you know Simon has card galleries for each of their releases and their card kits, and even a video gallery? It's true and you can add your very own cards and projects to these galleries! Here's a link to all the Simon Brand Galleries and here's the link to the Love You More release gallery and the Hey Bestie release gallery. There is so much inspiration to see! I encourage you to check them out and add your own cards/projects. 


CARDS:
All products used are listed below in the compensated affiliate links, at no extra cost to you. 

My first two cards are from "Suzy's Spring and Easter Wishes Watercolor Prints" and I love them! If you have never tried these coloring cards, you're missing out! They are preprinted and can be used with any coloring medium, including watercolors, Copic markers, color pencils, etc. I used Copics on both cards. Love this pretty pot of flowers!




 Is this bunny cute or what?! 




Next up is the cutest stamp set! Gnomes are all the rage right now and these "Spring Gnomes" are so adorable! I white embossed them and used Zig Markers to watercolor the images.




I don't love how this next card turned out but I'm excited to give this stencil set another try, with some pink shades. It's called, "Layered Tulips and it's really fun to play with! I just don't love my color choices but wanted to share it anyway. The sentiment is a fun one, isn't it? It's from the, "Just Because Word Mix 2" stamp set.




Okay, this, "Inlaid Crosses" die set is so gorgeous! There are so many different ways to use them. I chose a simple lavender color, along with some glitter cardstock and I love the way it turned out! The sentiment is from an older Simon set. 




My final card is very clean and simple. I used another beautiful stencil called, "Daisy Bouquet." I blended some Simon inks through the stencil and the sentiment is another one from the "Just Because Word Mix 2" set.



 
That's it for me! I hope I gave you some inspiration and ideas for this awesome release! 

Don't forget day 2 of the hop is tomorrow, so stop by the Simon blog for the beginning of Saturday's hop.
