Hi friends! Thanks for joining us for the Simon Says Stamp Valentine's 2014 Blog Hop. You should have arrived here from the lovely May Flaum's blog! I may say this every release, but I mean it this time — THIS release is my favorite one yet!!
Simon asked each of the designers to showcase specific products from the release. I worked with the Clustered Leaves die and the Small Hello die. I began by laying the Clustered Leaves die diagonally across the card front and running it through my Big Shot. I then added a piece of green cardstock in the negative space. Then I took the leaves that I originally cut and layered them back on the card front, slightly offset from where I cut them. This creates a really unique shadow effect and is really a quick and simple technique! To make the Small Hello die POP, I die cut it several times from white cardstock. I glued all of my hellos together and added the final hello on top, die cut from wood grain paper.
It wouldn't be a Simon Says Stamp hop without a GIVEAWAY! Simon is giving away a $25 gift card to the Simon store to a commenter from each stop on the hop — 16 chances to win! Make sure you leave a comment below, as well as at the other stops on the hops to increase your odds.
The next stop on the hop is Laurie Willison at Soapbox Creations. I cannot wait to see what she has made — love her style! Thanks for stopping by!
