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

 

MY CARDS:

For this first card, I used the gorgeous, Shamrock Background Cling Stamp. I stamped it in VersaMark Ink, heat embossed it in white and colored it using Zig Watercolor Markers. The sentiment is from a fantastic set called, Well Wishes. And do you see those little, triangle trays? They're a new tool from Simon and they're perfect for holding all your small embellishments as you craft. I love them!

 

Up next is a beautiful stencil called, Clover Wreath. For this card, I used a couple of Simon's Pawsitively Saturated green inks and a blending brush. I thought the gold cardstock and gold embossed sentiment (again from the Well Wishes set) would look really pretty with the green shades.

 

I really enjoyed creating this next card! I used some of Tim Holtz's newest Alcohol Ink Pearls to create a bold background for that wonderful, large sentiment! And yes, you guessed it - it's also from the Well Wishes set. Believe me when I say, you NEED that set!


 

Last but not least is this fun and festive birthday card. I used more of Tim's Alcohol Ink Pearls but this time on Simon's new, Black Glossy Cardstock! I love the effect you can achieve with this technique! If you want to try it, make sure you also use the Snow Cap Mixative. The white alcohol ink helps the other ink colors show up better on the black. The dies are called, Balloon Background Die and Basic Box Card Happy Birthday Die. Love them both!


Okay, that's it from me. I hope I've given you a few ideas for using some of the awesome products from this fun release! Thanks so much for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of the hop!
