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

MY CARDS: 

First up is the adorable, Birthday Bears stamp set. I did some Copic coloring and masking to create this cute scene.


 

Next is this beautiful embossing folder called, Sunflower Field and it comes with a matching die! I embossed it onto a sheet of vellum and adhered that to my pink card base. I cut out three sunflowers from the same pink card stock and added those in a cluster, onto the vellum overlay. The sentiment is also new. It's from the Hello Sunshine Die Set.


 

For my third card, I used the fun, Beach Party Umbrellas Cling Stamp. I love this stamp! I had so much fun water coloring the images with Zig Markers, for a rainbow effect! I used the Hello Sunshine Die Set again, for the sentiment.


Are you ready for some foiling? I never thought I'd get into foiling but I love it now! It's not only fun, it gives amazing results too! For this card, I used the pretty, Sketched Daisy Bloom Foil Plate and Die set. Why is foiling so difficult to photograph? Wish you could see the beautiful shine!



And last but not least is this fun beach scene! I used two new products for this card - the Let's Get Away stamp set, plus the Surf and Sand Stencil. Anyone wanna come join me here?! 


Okay, so that's it for me. I hope I've given you a few ideas for using some of the products from this fabulous release! Next up on the hop is the very talented Heather Hoffman!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of the hop!

Dear Barb
I want to join you so that I can learn some tips to be a better crafter. Love all your cards and thanks for taking the time to showcase all these cards to inspire us. I loved the daisy card because pink is my favourit color and my craft room is more or less pink. Unfortunately I cannot buy any products as I am from Sri Lanka the tiny island nation below India and the shipping cost is very high thanks to our rulers stealing left right and centre. We are without fuel, gas meds and the list goes on. Ah we have daily power cuts too and the duration of the power cuts will be increased in the future. People are protesting and I also join them as I cannot bear this injustice anymore. Sorry for boring you.tc stay safe
