Simon Says Stamp Friendly Frolic Release Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!

I am super excited today because I get to be part of a WONDERFUL hop for Simon Says Stamp to show the amazing new products in a series called Friendly Frolic! I am in LOVE and I know you will be too!!!
If you are doing the hop you should have come from my amazingly talented SSSWC teamie Ankita Gupta but if you just happened to stop by here today , make sure to start from the beginning at Simon Says Stamp Blog . Not only because I don't want you to miss wonderful inspiration but also because there's a great chance for you to win giftcards to the SSS store - info below.

Check ut the Friendly Frolic Gallery for more inspiration - and when you have created something with these goodies make sure to upload pictures of them there too!






For my first card I diecut the beautiful  Simon-Says-Stamp-FOLK-DANCE-Wafer-Dies  through Simon Says Stamp Ultra Thick Cardstock  and matted it to Simon-Says-Stamp-VELLUM . I then stamped, colored and diecut the amazing Lotus frowers from Simon-Says-Stamps-And-Dies-SKETCH-LOTUS-FLOWERS. They are so beautiful and I love that they are sketched like that because they will be amazing watercolored too with that natural sketchy look. Then I diecut the Happy - first from the  Tonic-GOLD-PEARL-Mirror-Card-Satin-Effect-Cardstock and then white cardstock. They look so elegant paired like this I think! Wonderful for wedding cards or stylish birthday cards!




I know it says in the picture above but I just have o write it out here too because I don't want you to miss it - If you use the code FREEG you will recieve a free gift with your order! Choose your favorites carefully but don't wait too long because the code expires Sunday, 7/29 at 11:59 pm ET.




For this card I also used Simon-Says-Stamp-VELLUM but tghis time I stamped the wonderful Simon-Says-Cling-Rubber-Stamp-FOLK-DANCE in white to it and it is just lovely! I absolutely LOVE the new Simon-Says-Stamp-BIG-HAPPY-Wafer-Dies . They work on their own but layered they are AMAZING. Here I inked them with distress ink (picked raspberry) before adding nuovo glitter and glossy accent. The birthday sentiment is from Simon-Says-Stamps-And-Dies-BEAUTIFUL-FLOWERS and the frame from MFT stamps.






For my last card I used the wonderful Simon-Says-Stamp-LEAFY-FRAME-Wafer-Dies. It is uesful for for so many designs and also lovely elegant classig ones but here I wanted to make a fun bg for the super cute monkeys from   Hello There Simon Says Stamp set .
The distress ink colors I used were twisted citron, Mowed Lawn and Pine.




To view all the new goodies go HERE
