SSS Falling For You Hop...

fallingforyouhop

Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp, Falling For You Blog hop!  There are so many fun things to see today and I am so glad you stopped by!  If you haven't seen the whole release, you can click HERE to see everything in the store.

To start at the beginning of the hop, stop over to the Simon blog.  If you are following along on the hop, you are coming here from my sweet friend, Kathy Racoosin's blog.

  So my first card uses the background stamp called Tiny Alphabet.  I used 3 different Hero Arts Ombre ink pads in the background to make a rainbow look....
(all supplies linked at the end of this post)

IMG_11351

I used the first ombre pad on the top and then overlapped as I went down.  The colors blended so nicely!  I stamped the Hand Lettered sentiment and then did a little fussy cutting.  I wanted the sentiment to pop a little after attaching it to the banner die.  I used a flower from the Floral Bookmarking stamp set and turned it into an apple.

This next card uses the new Diagonal background stamp.  I used my Misti and did a couple of stamps to get a nice dark striped image.  I layered this on a Sea Glass card base....

IMG_1143

I used a sentiment from Baby Party Animals, stamping the large Birthday sentiment first and then I straightened out the curved "happy" and stamped it above.  I added in a copic colored ballon with a layer of Glossy Accents to give it a little dimension.
