Time for a celebration of Simon Says Stamp’s newest product release! I created 3 cards and videos for this hop. However, I had some family stuff to take care of and only have one of the cards and videos for you today. But I will share the other two soon! There were so many great products in this release – you can see them all HERE.
I am thinking this will be a great card for our Kay… who graduates from high school next week. Eek!
Next, be sure to continue on the hop to my bestie Kathy Racoosin. (She is soooooo good at using stamps in unexpected and fabulous ways – wait til you see what she has created!) If you want to start at the beginning of the hop, you can start at the SSS blog.
Giveaway time! The folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a grab bag filled with stamps, paper, and embellishments to one randomly selected commenter on every blog in the hop – including mine! Just leave a comment here by 6/6/13 for your chance.
I, like many of you in the US, am excited about the fact that I have a three day weekend with my family. But MUCH more importantly, Memorial Day is about remembering those who lost their lives while serving our country… and praying for their families who have sacrificed so much. I know I am thankful and have great admiration for our country’s heroes.
Soooooo… I am honored to once again be part of the Operation Write Home Memorial Day Blog Hop. (Operation Write Home collects cards for soldiers to send home to their loved ones. You can find more info HERE.) To see the MANY people playing along today in honor of our heroes, head HERE.
Here is my card. Perfect for a hero or any man in your life…
Here is a closer look at the kit I used. You can also get the stamp set separately…

I have mentioned here before my love of the new Mama Elephant stamp line… and my admiration for their owner, Kryssi. So I was honored when they asked me to join them in celebrating this month’s release (which is available today HERE). Today I am part of their blog hop!
I love how dainty the images are in the new Filigree set. So pretty! I decided to make some layers of bold-colored lace…
I used Copic Markers to color the lace in, and added highlights with a white pen. The greeting is from the Mama Elephant Smitten set. (Which is a must-have!)

This new collection is very on trend and is perfect for stamping, cardmaking, and journaling. Faux painting… maps… geometric shapes… lots of good stuff. There are 43 new stamps and 27 new tools and accessories, such as stencils, dies, mint and peach ink colors, a notecard pad, and ink in a NEW Dauber format. Lots of good stuff! (Products are currently being shipped to stores around the world and will be in the Hero Arts Online Store on 5/15. Simon Says Stamps has many of the products already in HERE.)
I picked a few of the new clear sets to play with…
I am giddy about the many faux-painting stamps. It gives you the look of hand painting without the effort. Just stamp!
I am the last stop on the blog hop! To start over, head to the Hero Arts Blog HERE. And there are giveaways! Just leave a comment here and at all the other blog hop stops for your chance to win some new goodies!
Today I am happy to be part of the Simon Says Stamp Spring 2013 Blog Hop. Get ready – several artists have teamed together to bring you LOTS of ideas and giveaways! These products are delicious and great for card making and scrapbooking.
I have always wanted to be a watercolor artist and I can totally fake it with the help of the stencil and Inktense Pencils…
Yummy, yummy colors. I used the Brights Inktense Pencil Collection. Yummy trendy colors. (For more ideas using these pencils, look HERE.) The greeting is made up of a bunch of different greetings cut up.
Fun stuff, huh? Full supplies are at the end of this post.
Here is a look at all the new Simon Says Stamp stamps and dies. The first few are the ones I used on this card…
