Simon Says Stamp Valentine's Day Blog Hop


Love is in the air and Simon Says Stamp has made it even more fun to create projects to show someone that you love them with their 2013 Valentine’s Day Release 

I was asked if I would like to join in and  create a project using something from this release to share in today’s Valentine’s Day Blog Hop !! Are you kiddin me !! WOULD I LIKE !! To be included in a hop with some of THE most well known names in crafting is such a HUGE thrill for me ,, even though I did have a few restless nights ,,, :-)
You should have arrived here from the super talented Kathy Racoosin's Blog, if not you may need to start at the beginning on the Simon Says Stamp Blog.

I made 2 cards to share today, I hope you like them :-)

First up is ‘Furry Kisses’,,, I have 8 cats so this image is just up my street ! I had a ‘lightbulb’ moment at 4 am a few nights ago and knew what I wanted to do,, and am quite happy with how it turned out ,, not all ideas transfer well to reality :-)


I downloaded the Ice Cream (Kissing) Cart from the Silhouette Studio and used papers and brads from the January Card Kit.  I glittered the cart using Modge Podge Sparkle and added some Star Dust stickles here and there too. The ‘furry kisses’ sentiment is in the stamp set and I used the Silhouette Cameo to write the '10 cents each' :-)
Close Up ,,, awww soo cute :-)


I had a lot of fun creating this next one using loads of inks, glitters and dies :-)
I used plain white Neenah Cardstock, coloured with Pumice Stone Distress Inks and then smothered with perfect pearls, so lovely and shimmery IRL ,,, that was a tip from the lovely Jennifer McGuire and it really does look silvery,I used this card for layering.
I then die cut some Simon Says Stamp White Watercolor Paper with the Falling Hearts Die and coloured with Spun sugar, Victorian Velvet and Festive Berries Distress Inks, I then sprayed a Hero ArtsFriends Definition’ stamp with water and ‘kissed some of the ink off the paper, it gives a lovely slightly mottled appearance.

And now to the giveaway part! Leave a comment on this blog post and one lucky winner will receive a Simon Goodie Bag (if you know Heidi, it will be a good one!). We will draw the winner on Thursday morning 1/31/13 at 9:00 AM EST. so be sure to leave your comment by then.
Thanks for visiting! The next stop in the Simon Says Stamp Valentine’s Day Blog Hop is the fabulously talented Kristina Werner. I am sure Kristina will have something GORGEOUS to show you :-)

If while hopping, you encounter a broken link, you can go back to the beginning for links to everyone who is participating in the hop.

Thank you so much for looking and I appreciate you taking the time to leave me a comment :-)

Happy Hopping !! :-)
