SSS Dear Friend Release Blog Hop Day 2!

 Hi friends!

Welcome to my stop on the Simon Says Stamp, Dear Friend release blog hop!

I'm so happy you're here and I'm excited to share a few cards today, using some of the new release products!

This is a two day hop. If you missed yesterday's hop, head over to this post on Simon's blog to start. If you'd like to start at the beginning of today's hop, click here.


Simon is 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, May 24th.


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 Dear Friend Gallery. There is so much inspiration to see! I encourage you to check them out and add your own cards/projects as well! 


First up is the Supercalifragilistic stamp set. This set is perfect to create a card for anyone who is struggling with life's tougher times. It also adds a bit of humor, which can definitely make someone feel better. I used Copic Markers and a matching, Simon ink for this fun, pink card! Hope you enjoy my yummy, strawberry margarita!

Next up is this darling set called, Howdy. I created a cute, little scene with Copic Markers, then fussy cut the images (yes, even the sun) to adhere to the background.

My next two cards showcase the Fancy Hello die set. I created a couple of edge to edge shaker cards. I also used Simon's new ink CUBES! There are two sets of six ink cubes in this release - pinks and grays. First up - the Pink Blooms set.

And now for the Gray Skies set.

Simon also sent me some really cute products that I love, along with the ink cubes. They now have adorable, Embossing Clothespins and the cutest, Paws-It, Sticky note Pad! How fun is that?!

Okay, that's it for me. I hope I've given you some ideas on how to use a few of the products from this fun release! Thank you so much for stopping by!
