SSS Cozy Hugs Release Blog Hop Day 1!

 Hi everyone!

Welcome to my stop on the Simon Says Stamp, Cozy Hugs release blog hop!

I'm your last stop on the hop today. If you'd like to start at the beginning, click here to head to Simon's blog. And don't forget, the hop continues tomorrow with so much more inspiration!


As you can see from the banner above, if you shop during the hop, you'll receive Simon's Giant Hugs Card Wrap die for free with a purchase of $75 or more! Use the code: COZY at checkout. This promotion ends at 11:59 pm ET on 10/9.


Simon is also giving away a $25 gift certificate at every stop along the hop, from the comment sections! Be sure to leave a comment below for a chance to win. Simon will announce the winners on their blog on Wednesday, October 12th.


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


I must admit, life got in the way the last coupe weeks and I was not able to create as many cards for the hop as I normally do. I feel so bad about that and the three cards I am sharing today are simple, easy and not my best work. I think we can all relate that there are times in our lives when other things take priority. **sigh** 

Anyway, on this first card, I used the adorable, Batty For You stamp set. I did not have the dies but these images are pretty easy to fussy cut. I colored the bat with Copics and used some white paint to splatter across the black cardstock. 

Next up is the fun, Turkey Day stamp set. The turkey images in this set are a riot! They definitely made me smile! Just some simple Copic coloring and using the small leaf image to stamp all over the background.

On my last card, I used the beautiful die called, Layered Warbler. I combined a bit of dark blue cardstock with some Copic colored pieces to put together this pretty bird. 

That's it for me and you are officially finished hopping for today. Don't forget to stop by Simon's blog again tomorrow for day 2 of the hop! 

I hope I've given you a little bit of inspiration today for using some of the products in this awesome release! Thank you so much for stopping by! Hugs!
