Can you believe it's almost Valentines day? 2013 has flown by. What floors me more....we are half way done with this school year. My kiddos are getting old by the minute....that means I am too! Yikes! ;)
It's a pretty fun day over at Simon Says. Today is the Valentine's blog hop. There are SO many gorgeous new stamps and dies, you aren't going to want to miss a stop! (And there are 16 chances to win a $25 gift voucher....keep reading!) You should have hopped over from Jess's blog. There is a complete list of blogs at the bottoms too.
I have a card here today using a new die and a new stencil....
This die is called the Big Hugs die. Isn't it adorable? It is really a good size sentiment and in such a fun font. I used the Gradated Blocks Stencil with my C2 Copic marker and airbrush for a subtle background image. I used some washi tape to adhere the stencil down on the white card stock and then airbrushed the gray. Then I scored 3 lines using the Martha Stewart Score board, for a little added design.
I cut out the die 5 times and glued them all together to give this fun 3D effect. And the color? It's the new Lipstick Red paper from Simon Says. It's 100lb paper and its absolutely FABULOUS!
Oh and don't forget the little hearts! Those are from a new die called Heart Rainfall. I just cut them out in white and added them in at the bottom.
Last step? I colored the whole sentiment with clear Winks of Stella. In this last pick you can see the shimmer. LOVE that stuff! A must have for sure!
OK....now get this! There are 16 chances to win a $25 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp. Just leave a comment here and all the other 15 blogs along the hop!
