Simon Says Stamp Fresh Bloom Blog Hop - Day 1

March 8, 2019


Happy Friday, crafty friends! It's always a happy day when we are celebrating a brand new release from Simon Says stamp, right?! Their latest collection is called Fresh Bloom, and it is full of lovely products! Simon is doing a free Lucky to Know You die as a gift with purchase promotion - just use the code FRBLM89 upon checkout to take advantage while supplies last! The code will expire on Sunday, 03/10 at 11:59 pm ET.

This is day 1 of the Fresh Bloom Blog Hop, and we've got quite the lineup for you! I will put all of the blog hop details at the end of my post, but how about we get to my cards first? I've focused on the adorable Bunny Wishes stamp set, which is 6x8 in size and SO cute! Check it out!

The first thing I did was blend the clouds using oxide inks in Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Tumbled Glass and Broken China.

Then I stamped the bunny & balloons to white cardstock in onyx black Versafine. Next I colored in the image with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, then fussy cut it. This stamp set has coordinating dies, but I did not receive them. Seriously - just get the dies. Lol! I'm so not good at fussy cutting, but it had to be done!

Next I stamped & heat embossed parts of the sentiment directly to the ink blended background, then adhered it to an A2 white cardbase with foam adhesive. Then I adhered the bunny image to the front with foam dots. I stamped the final part of the sentiment to white cardstock and trimmed into a thin strip. I adhered it directly below the word happy, and then to finish I accented with jewels and added shimmer to the balloons.
That is what I have for you today! How about we get to all the fun blog hop info now?!

  11. What an absolutely precious card Lea. The clouds look amazing done this way (in different colours), ♥ it! Well done.
    I like dies whenever possible too as I am not the best at fussy cutting. When my DIL started card making a couple of years ago it was the first thing I told her when she was ordering stamps. I said "get the dies NOW, you'll wish you did later...Fast forward 2 yrs... She now gets the dies whenever possible! LOL
