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

 MY CARDS: 

My first two cards showcase the Foil Plate and Die set called, Intricate Rose and Blooms Bouquet. I love that this set comes with a coordinating die! I started with an elegant design, hot foiling the bouquet onto some black glossy cardstock, using some silver foil. Simple, easy yet so pretty!

 

 

Next I used some pretty, gold foil and some watercolor paper. I used Zig Markers to watercolor the bouquet. I wish you could see how beautiful the foiling is! It's really lovely in real life!

 
 

This next card is a fun one! The Mother Earth stamp set is so cool! If you love to color, like I do, you'll want this set for sure! I colored the image with Copics, die cut it into a circle, then added the circular shaped card onto a background that was clear embossed with the Lined Background Cling stamp.

Here's how it opens and a peek of the inside.

 
 

The beautiful Lisianthus stamp set is up next! I colored with Copics and paired with an older stencil, giving some interest to the background. The sentiments in this set are equally as beautiful as the floral image!


Okay, last card. This one uses two, new sets. The Dimensional Stars stencil set and the A2 Marquee die set. A fun and colorful card! And Simon's inks are so perfect to use with stencils, so I'm REALLY excited that they came out with re-inkers in this release!


That's it for me! I hope I've given you some ideas for using a few of the products from this fantastic release! Enjoy the rest of the hop and thank you so much for the visit!

LOVE the card you made with the Intricate Rose and Blooms Bouquet set, but my favorite is the colorful Mother Earth image you colored. They're both super creative! Also, thanks for the info on reinkers being available -- that is a must for me before I will buy a new ink pad, so I appreciate it that you brought this to my attention. I will take a closer look at them.
