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


So many of the products in this release are right up my flower-loving alley! I was lucky to receive some products to play with but I also ordered lots more because this release is so fabulous! Anyway, my first card uses the beautiful, Lily of the Valley Arch embossing folder. I colored the raised image with Copic markers.

Next up is the Pretty Petals stamp set. This set is a multi-stamping set and so fun to play with! I used an older embossing folder to add some texture to the background. Simple and easy!

For my third card, I used the Lattice Tile stencil, along with the Meadow Swag die. The floral and leaf images were colored with Copics.

This card was a fun one to make! I used lots of pretty ink colors with the Lattice Tile stencil. The sentiments are from the Splendid Sentiment stamp set.

Okay, last card. This one also uses the Lattice Tile stencil but in a more subtle way. I inked up my card panel, then spritzed the stencil with some water and pressed it onto the panel to "lift off" some of the ink. Love that fun technique! And the flowers are from the Whirl Medallion die set.

That's it for me and I'm your last stop on today's hop. I hope I've given you a few ideas for using some of the products in this fantastic release. Thanks so much for stopping by!
