Simon Says Stamp The Sunny Days Ahead Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!

I am so excited today to be part of the Simon Says Stamp The Sunny Days Ahead blog hop. It is such an Amazing and fun release but I must start by pointing out that my Projects are made with previously released Products (postal service is not as reliable as it used to be and my new things are not here yet) If you want to view the full release click  HERE

First out I want to share two Mother's day cards:


I also share my cards and watercolors here:  My Instagram 


I stamped the Beautiful flowers from LOOK-FOR-THE-RAINBOWS with distress ink on watercolorpaper and then colored them using Daniel Smith watercolors. I then trimmed them and atached them to my polka dot embossed panel and cardbase.

For my second card I used the Beautiful FOLK-DANCE-Wafer-Dies to create my card panel. I adhered it to my cardbase Before ataching a distressinked DECO-HEART OUTLINE-CLUSTERED-LEAVES and the Lovely I-LOVE-YOU-Wafer-Dies. For both my cards the MOM-AND-DAD die was perfect for diecutting my mum. Word. 




Last but not least I wanted to share a card that is perfect to send someone you love, but have not had the chance to see in person for a long time. For me it would be my mum who is 75 so in a way this is also a Mother's Day card this year, but a card that can be sent all year round. 



I used the Beautiful THANKFUL-FLOWERS , stamed them on watercolor paper but this time I used my copics for coloring.

Karin, your first card is just stunning! I love the deep pinks and blues in this card! I bet it could be a fun baby card theme too. Just fabulous!!! I think that folk art die is just divine and it looks great under the lovely golden heart you added atop it. The leaves and vines and florals in your last card are so soft and sweet; your mum will love all of them! Fantastic work as always dear Karin! Your creations never disappoint me and are so inspiring! Cheers! Happy Mother's Day!
