Be Bold release Blog Hop

 Hi Everyone!  

Welcome to the Be Bold Blog hop! I am so happy to be part of today's - Simon Says Stamp Hop Day 2 celebraiting their latest release  Be Bold!

Also don't miss using the code GREEN when you shop to get $7 off with a purchase of $40 or more. This code will expire 3/24 at 11:59 pm EDT. While supplies last.









For the three cards above I diecut the wonderful Lush Leaves from watercolor paper and then colored them using Daniel Smith Watercolors. I diecut panels from watercolor paper and gold cardstock and assembled them to a cardbase once I had stamped the greetings with SSS Black ink. My sentiments are from Flower Block and Airy Greetings
I then decorated my panels with the diecut leaves and added some lovely 


For my thisd, instead fo coloring the leaves I cut a window of leaves and colored the bg instead. Simple yet beautiful. I added gold to my watercolors which shimmer when the light hits. 



My last and fourth card was extremely fast and simple using the new layering stamps called Airy Greetings. The color combinations for designs with these stamps are infinite and so fun. I went with a colorcombo that make me think of a tablecloth my grandma had when I was little (70's) (-:
