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

MY CARDS:

Up first is this fun, colorful card, using the Lemon Tree embossing folder. I used Zig Markers for a fresh, yummy, watercolor look.


For my next card, I used the Tin Roof stencil. I first blended some soft ink colors through the stencil, then added some clear embossing paste through the stencil to create a shiny, raised design. I added the panel to one of the sheets from the Bold Brights Color Blend Cardstock pack. I thought it coordinated nicely. The sentiment is from the Just Breathe stamp set.



This next card uses only the Just Breathe stamp set. This set has so many beautiful, encouraging sentiments! A simple card, with rainbow colors, to show someone you care.



This one is so fun! It's the Summer Fruit Tiles stamp set. This set has coordinating stencils and dies, which I did not have, so I just stamped a portion of the stamp and colored the images with Copic Markers. I love the yummy, summer feel!



My last card showcases the Lily of the Valley Stem die set. I ink-blended a frame and did some very simple, Copic coloring for a quick and easy, yet elegant card. And I also used another sentiment from the Just Breathe stamp set. 



That's it for me. I hope I've given you some ideas on how to use a few of the products from this awesome release! Enjoy the rest of the hop and thanks so much for stopping by!
