simon says stamp valentine’s day blog hop and giveaway!
Love is in the air and Simon Says Stamp has made it even more fun to create projects to show someone that love with their 2013Valentine’s Day Release. I was asked to create a project using something from this release to share in today’s Valentine’s Day Blog Hop. However, I couldn’t stop with just one project and ended up making three! So if you haven’t already then grab yourself a cup of tea and settle down :) For my first card I just had to play with the Furry Kisses stamp set.
The previous stamp set featuring Kristina Werner’s pet cat Mannie was a huge hit with me (click here, here, here and here). I’m not sure if Mannie has a friend but I like to call her Maria! Mannie and Maria were stamped onto Neenah solar white card, coloured with Copics and cut out then I created a wall for them to hang out on together from three colours of card cut into 1cm by 1.5cm pieces and adhered onto a grey piece of card. I thought these two kitties looked quite cosmopolitan so used Hero Arts Newspaper Skyline stamped in three colours to create a little city scene. The sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Talk Bubbles 2 was stamped onto a fun speech bubble from the matching die set. Oh and the little hearts were die cut with one of my all time favourite dies – Holiday Shapes and coloured with markers.
For my next card I wanted to play with some colour and more of the fun new dies:
I’ve seen vellum popping up everywhere just recently so for my final card I white heat embossed two hearts from the Lots of Hearts set onto vellum die cut with a die from the Large Hearts set. The sentiment from Just A Love Note was also white heat embossed and finally I couldn’t resist another scattering of hearts from the Holiday Shapes dies and also this time I used the new Large Holiday Shapes dies too.
Phew, I hope you enjoyed my look into the new Valentine’s Day products. I’ve also used some of the sets previously here and here :)
