So as if the arrival of the weekend wasn’t reason enough to celebrate, today I also get to join in with one AMAZING blog hop in honour of the brand new (only became available yesterday) MASTERPIECE BOX from Simon Says Stamp. If you don’t already know, this is a very special chance to purchase products from some of the leading companies in the craft industry ahead of their release date and all in one amazing box! Imagine that parcel arriving on your doorstep!! For every comment you leave on the your trip round the hop stops today, you have a chance of winning a $25 Simon Says Stamp gift certificate too – woohoo! This box is in LIMITED quantities and once it’s sold out it won’t be restocked – just sayin’ 😉
So I’ve been lucky enough to be able to play with a few of these gorgeous products over the last few days and here’s what I have to share.
First up are two cards I made using a stunning set from Simon Says Stamp called Oh Happy Day. The is card uses a couple of the open flowers and a masking technique to create a frame around the sentiment. I chose some pretty, warm colours Simon Says Stamp inks and added some sparkle to them with a clear Wink of Stella pen.
Next, I chose the large solid bloom from the same set and stamped it in three colours of pink and purple. I die cut a circle and the Hugs sentiment (also from Simon Says Stamp) in black and adhered them to the card base and finished off with a few Doodlebug Sprinkles in black.
My final card feature a couple of sweet new sets from Clearly Besotted. Originally designed for use in your planners I thought I would use them on a card instead. I stamped a bunch of the Panda Planner images over a piece of white cardstock and chose a stamp from the smaller Penguin Planner set to sit in amongst them. To make him stand out a wee bit more I coated him in Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents. The sentiment is from a perviously released Simon Says Stamp set called Happy Days.
So now you can pop along to the next stop on the hop which is the gorgeous BARB ENGLER!
And here’s the full list – just in case you missed any out!
