I haven’t done a Product Release Close-Up for several weeks, so I was excited to have one for you today. These products are new from Simon Says Stamp and are all fun… so I know it may be overwhelming. I am hoping this video helps you get a better look at the products and how they might be used. You can find all the products HERE.

Here are the quick and simple projects I shared in the video…

I had such fun making these simple bookmarks with Lila. Lila stamped her fingerprint in several colors of pigment ink… and I stamped the new Simon Says Stamps Fingerprint Doodles images on top. Cute, huh?

These simple bookmarks actually slide over the corner of a page in a book. They are so easy to make – I just cut the corners off a sealed envelope. Easy!

We will be giving these to friends and family after Lila signs her name on the back.

I also created a couple simple cards using the new Simon Says Stamp Picture Book Fox and Bear Dies. I simply cut them from white cardstock, colored them with Copic Markers, and pieced them together on my card. The white pieces were created with the Simon Says Stamp Wonky Rectangle Die and the sentiment is from the Simon Say Stamp Wild Cuddly Critters Stamp Set.

For the look of texture on the bear, I dabbed with a microfiber cloth and rubbing alcohol.

In the video I also show a look at the new Copic Marker Sketch Fine Nib. These are FABULOUS. I simply remove the rarely-used broad tip and replace with this one. Now my markers have a brush tip and a fine/bullet/firm tip! YAY! There are three in a pack.

The coloring pages are awesome too! Ah I’m just patiently waiting now for your video 🙂

  10. It was difficult to select my favorite as I love the wreath dies: however I am in love with the finger dies. My daughter is an educator and I can see making many bookmarks for her as well as my little grandchildren! Thank you, Jennifer,

  11. Hello Jennifer,
    My favourite is the Simon Says Stamps And Dies SO COOL Set, I love these cute ice-creams 😉
    Thanks a lot for this giveaway.
    Have a great day.

  12. Those little finger print critters are adorable, Jennifer … such a great idea to use them for bookmarks! My favourite from this release is the Bouquet of Thanks set … lovely sketchy blooms and a fabulous font on the sentiments! Anita 🙂

  13. I like the finger print doodle stamp set and I think it is super cute. Great idea and thanks for sharing!

  14. I really like Punder the Sea. So many possibilities! Also the Heart Trail die is really neat. And…did you say only one? No way!

  15. I really like the arsty fruit stamps, but those fingerprint animals are super fun also! I think my kids would have a hay day with them, and I would too! 🙂

  16. So many great products. I was a little unsure about the fingerprint doodles, but after seeing your bookmarks, I’m in love! Really appreciate the demo of the Copic fine nib too. I think I’ll get a lot of use out of those.

  17. My favorite products are the Floral Burst Collage die and the Big Greeting 1 Stamp Set. I am so glad Copic came out with a fine nib. Thanks for the great product review. Can’t wait to see your next video.

  19. Love the finger print stamp. It is the most perfect summer time stay in the cool project . My adult friends r crazy about it. It is also a way of preserving identity for children for they have children and how they compare to them . Well done folks. Love love loveit.

  20. I really like the wreath dies and the finger print stamp set is so very cute. Love the book mark idea!

  22. Definitely the fingerprint doodles. I can’t wait to use them with my nieces and nephews!

  23. Love Simon Says Stamps. They are so cute and versatile in the uses. They do so many things that other stamp companies do no do. Keep up the good creative work. Thank you.

  24. I really like the bouquet and all the gorgeous wreaths but my our favorite is the finger print doodles! I can’t wait to make these with my class of children during art once school starts back. Where do I get the envelopes you used? All my envelopes have either a short straight flap or s triangular flap–none that extend 2 1/2″ down the back of the envelope. I would probably get ask white, cut colored card stock for a layer and then do the finger prints on yet another layer in white. It would be easier on the budget to have to buy only one color envelope and I have TONS of colored cardstock! TFS. I just watched the video highlighting your card creations and can’t wait to shop! 🙂

  25. I love both of the Wonky Rectangle die and the Floral Burst Collage die. The fingerprint set is so cute, too. So hard to pick just one?

  26. What a tough time trying to pick a favorite from this release! I love the Bouquet of Stamps, the Floral Burst Collage, the Thanks Script, and the Fingerprint Doodles. Can I have four favorites? LOL!! Another great video showcasing these new products!

  27. The stamp heart sprinkle trail dye is my favorite. I love hearts and the way you use the dye is amazing. Thank you for inspiring me. I appreciate your creativity and hints.
