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


I'm excited to share some cards with you today, using some of the products from this awesome release! Up first is the beautiful, Garden Spires embossing folder. I very carefully colored all the tiny, raised flowers and leaves with Copic Markers. 

Next is the Folksy Cats stamp set. I white embossed the large floral image from the set and used a rainbow of colors to ink blend the background. The sentiment is included in the set.

This next card is simple but elegant. I used the Windswept Leaves die set, some fog cardstock and fog ink for shading, then added a bit of sparkle with a glitter pen. 

More ink blending for this next card. I used the Twinkling Stars cling stamp, along with the Holding Space die set.

And for my last card, I played with the Patterned Squares stencil. I also used all six colors of Simon's new ink cube set called, Yellow Sunsets. The sentiment is from the Folksy Cats stamp set. It's a busy, crazy background but I think that's what makes it fun!

That's it for me. I hope I've given you a few ideas for using some of the products from this fabulous release! 

Enjoy the last couple of stops on the hop and thank you so much for stopping by!
