Keep scrolling to see 3 projects using several new stamps and dies, details on today's giveaway and a full list of stops on the hop!

Let's get started...



Simon Says Stamp


This first card was so much fun to make.  Growing up, my family raised Boston Terriors so I always love Boston stamps and dies.  To create this card, I masked off the card front and blended in some Altenew ink for the perfect rainbow.  Next, I used the SSS Thank You Text Background stamp with black ink inside that masked area.  I removed the masking tape for the perfect framed background.


Simon Says Stamp


I popped up Simon's Oh, hello there sentiment die on black fun foam and then added in that adorable Lil Critters Boston Die.  I finished it off with a little heart and some Glossy Accents on his eyes and heart.

This next card showcases the new CZ Design set, Happy Days.


Simon Says Stamp


To create this card, I heat embossed the Happy image on several rainbow pieces of cardstock and cut them at 1" strips.  I added each piece to a white A2 card using foam tape.  


Simon Says Stamp


Last, I heat embossed the "you make me so happy" sentiment on black cardstock and added that to the card front with foam tape for some dimension.

One last project today using the new set called Be a Mermaid and the Mermaid Stencil.


Simon Says Stamp


Using the Mermaid Stencil, I added in some glazed and glitter for the mermaid tail effect.  I die cut a circle out of the stenciled background once it was dry and added it to the card front with foam tape.


Simon Says Stamp


I heat embossed the sentiment and popped it up with foam tape and then tucked in a few of the small details from the stamp set.  I added the bubble image along the side and then glued down some clear drops that fit perfectly on each bubble.
