Simon Says Stamp Peace on Earth Release Blog Hop!

Hi everyone!

Welcome to my stop on the Simon Says Stamp, Peace on Earth release blog hop! I'm excited to share my cards with you today! It's a fabulous release with lots of wonderful products for all your holiday card making! To start at the beginning of the hop, head over to Simon's blog here.


As you can see from the banner above, if you shop during the Peace on Earth blog hop, you'll receive a Pawsitively Everything Tool FOR FREE, with a purchase of $25 or more! Just use the code: LUCKYU at checkout. The code expires on 10/10, at 11:59pm EDT. I have several of these awesome tools and LOVE using them in my craft room!


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 new, Peace on Earth gallery. There is so much inspiration to see! I encourage you to check them out and add your own cards/projects.


My first card is a bright and festive one! I love that Simon now carries their very own Matte Silver Cardstock! (and gold too) It die cuts so beautifully! I also used the Geometric Snowflakes Cling stamp, along with the die set called, Merry and Bright. I white embossed the background, then did a watercolor wash with Distress Oxide inks.

More Silver Cardstock!. Love this stuff! This card showcases the Holiday Messages Ornament stamp and die set. Stamping the solid ornament image is so easy when using Simon's new inks! Love them too!

Next up is the Berries and Leaves Stencil. I also used a sentiment from the must have, XL Christmas Greetings stamp set, embossed in gold. I added a few gold star sequins to finish off the card.

For my last card, I used the Geometric Snowflakes Cling stamp again, with a more tone-on-tone effect this time. That sentiment is another one from the XL Christmas Greetings set, embossed in white.

That's it from me! I hope I've given you a few fun ideas for using some of the awesome products in this fantastic release! Thanks so much for the stopping by! I appreciate every single visit and comment! ♥ ♥ ♥

Dear Barb - I think your work is fantastic. I love the two cards you did with the geo snowflake stamp - GORGEOUS! I like the ornaments and I love the stencil that gave you the leaves/berries card. I ordered that, too!! I'm so happy to have become acquainted through the exceptionally welcoming cardmaking community. I look to you as a model of the industry! Well done!
