 Hi friends!

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, Rainbows Gallery. There is so much inspiration to see! I encourage you to check them out and add your own cards/projects.


For my first two cards, I used the gorgeous, Vine Canopy 3D Embossing Folder. I used a brayer and some Distress Oxide ink on the first card. Very simple with beautiful results.


On this second one, I used a little white paint and embossed with vellum. Then I adhered the panel to some fog cardstock. Makes for an elegant wedding card! The sentiment happens to be from the new, Reverse Wedding Sentiment Strips.


This next one is so fun! I used the new, 3D Card die set, designed by my sweet friend Nina Trapani. Believe it or not, this card folds down to fit into a normal A2 size envelope! So cool! To decorate the die cut, I also used the fabulous and adorable, Sundae Afternoon stamp set. I colored the images, then fussy cut them out (because I didn't have the matching dies.) The sentiments are included in the set.


Next up is the Slimline Wave Stencil. So many possibilities with this one. I chose to create a mini slimline card and used some ink blending and a sentiment, for a clean and simple encouragement card.


For my last card, I used the beautiful, Delicate Outline Flowers Cling stamp. This one is my fave. You all know I love floral stamps and couldn't wait to color this one! I used Zig Markers to watercolor the image. The sentiment is another one from the Reverse Wedding Sentiment Strips.

Next up on the hop is the talented Lea Lawson at her blog, Lea Lawson Creates!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope I've given you some ideas on how to use some of the awesome products in this new release. Remember, this is day 1 of a 2-day blog hop, so be sure to stop by Simon's blog again tomorrow for tons more inspiration!
