Here's a link to all the Simon Brand Galleries and here's the link to the new, Hello, Gorgeous Gallery. There is so much inspiration to see! I encourage you to check them out and add your own cards/projects!

 

MY CARDS: 

These first two cards were created using the gorgeous, Mother's Day Tulips stamp set. The first one was water colored with Zig Markers and the second one was colored with Copics. It's such a beautiful set and has a large enough image to create a slimline card.

 


Up next is the Stained Glass Sun die. I did some simple ink blending and inlay die cutting, then I added a sentiment from the Mother's Day Tulips set.


For this card, I used a rainbow of Distress Oxide ink colors. It showcases the new Tin Tile stencil and an older die for the sentiment.


With my next card, I achieved a faux watercolor look using the Folk Art Flowers cling stamp. I scribbled the image with different colors of watercolor markers and spritzed the stamp with water before stamping. It's such a fun technique with really pretty results!


For my last card, I used the, Flowerful Medallion die. I die cut it several times from a white, slimline panel, inlaid the positive dies back into the negative spaces and used a lavender background for a soft look.


That's it for me. I hope I've given you a few fun ideas for using some of the products from this fabulous release! Thank you so much for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of the hop!
