Simon Says Let's Connect Blog Hop Day 2...


Good morning!  Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp, Lets Connect Release Blog Hop!  Have you seen the full Simon Release?  It's amazing!  So many fun new stamps and dies to pick from.  Click HERE to check it out!  

I have a couple projects to share using some of the latest products so let's get started!


Simon Says Stamp


This first card uses the new Happy Die.  I love this large sentiment that can be used in SO many ways.  I chose to use the negative on today's card.  


Simon Says Stamp


I die cut it from white cardstock and then lined the back with my favorite rainbow patterned paper from Lawn Fawn.  I popped it up on foam squares for some dimension and then added in the script Birthday die in black cardstock.  Super quick and easy!


Simon Says Stamp


There is a new stamp set from CZ Design called Let's Connect that is so perfect for quarantine crafting.  This is totally what I spent my time doing while stuck inside.  Zoom calls all the time crafting away!


Simon Says Stamp


This card was super easy.  I just added some Copic coloring to the cute little monitor and die cut it so I could pop it up on a white card base.


Simon Says Stamp


I stamped the coordinating sentiments in black along the bottom to finish it off.
