Hello Friends, How are you today? I am excited to be participating in Simon Says Stamps special release called Hop To It!! I can’t wait for you to see the full release because there are so many inspiring stamps and die cuts. Let’s get started…The first stop in the hop is the Simon Blog here. If you encounter a broken link refer back to the Simon blog for the full list AND there are always prizes!! Woo Hoo!
For the hop today I created three cards and ONE VIDEO…. alittle something for everyone I hope 🙂
In the video I am sharing with you how I watercolored the “Artful Flowers” along with a few extra tips that I like to add. To watch the video in HD click here. (If you are a subscriber to my You Tube channel I have a giveaway 🙂 ) The details will be at the very bottom of this post after the supply list.
There are so many possibilities with the whimsical “Artful Flowers” stamp and die set. Once my background was finished I watercolored three more flowers to pop on my card. I stamped on a strip of vellum with SSS black ink and used a glue pen to place it on my background. Pop the flowers with some foam and you are finished.
When I first saw these gals from the “Work Out” stamp set I knew I had to ink them up!! This initially was a one layer card but, I wanted to add some grass. I cut up part of the legs so I could lift them off the white background and slip in some grass using the “Stitched Slopes” die cuts. For the background I used a doily stencil that was on my desk and some distress ink.
This sweet image from workout girls was stamped on some white paper and colored with some Copic markers. Using a blending set can take the guess work out of choosing colors because the colors are right there for you that work together. The soft grey cardstock against the bright white is a nice soft contrast. The darker grey is inside the card and you can find all three shades of grey from this trio.
GIVEAWAY: Each stop on the hop will receive a Simon Says Stamp Prize pack randomly selected by Simon on February 23. The more comments you leave at each blog the greater your chances are to win. Winners will be announced on the Simon Blog.
