SSS Color of Fun Blog Hop



colorbloghop

Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp Color of Fun Blog Hop.  There are so many fun new stamps and dies to see today and I bet you have already seen a lot!  You are almost to the end of the hop and if you are following along, you have hopped in from the very talented, Anna-Karin's blog.  To see the full list of participants, stop on over to the Simon Says Blog.

To see the entire Color of Fun Release, click HERE.

I got overly excited about all the new goodies so I made 3 cards.  This first one is my favorite.  These gorgeous flowers and that sentiment are all from one new set called Many Thanks.

SSS Color of Fun Blog Hop

I stamped the flowers and leaves in a random pattern and then put the front card panel into my Misti.  I stamped the sentiment in black and then stamped it 2 more times just so I could get a solid image.  I popped that front panel up on a card base with foam tape to finish if off.

My favorite thing to do on a card is score lines.  If you look back, you can see I do this quite often.  Such an easy way to add a little detail to a white card base.

I stamped the sun in yellow and then sponged on a darker yellowish orange on the sun beams to give it a little scratchy texturey look.  Is texturey a word?  :)  Then I popped the middle of the sun up after stamping the sentiment.  I added in 2 thin strips of black card stock along the bottom of the card for some contrast.

The last card showcases the new Roller Coaster die....

I use my Tim Holtz Blending Tool to sponge on a couple layers of color.  The bottom color is Abandoned Coral and the top color is Spiced Marmalade.  (All products are linked below).  I used some Elmers spray adhesive and coated the back of the roller coaster and then attached it to the colored panel.  I used the new Grunge Alphabet to stamp "hello" along the rail in black ink.  I popped the panel up on foam tape and attached it to the card base.

I hope you have enjoyed my cards today and am so glad you stopped in!  Don't forget to leave a comment on each stop on the hop for multiple chances to win.  Your next stop is my sweet friend, Yoosun Hur's blog!  Have a great day!
